    Nanaimo is a cool little city.

    Nanaimo is a cool little city. Depending on the goal of your trip renting a vehicle is recommended, since the city is spread out. As well there is much to see in surrounding areas. With the ocean, mountains and forest this community is surrounded by nature and beauty!

    We had a great dinner at Firehouse Grill and fantastic coffee at Regards Coffee and the walk along the waterfront was nice but nothing super special, in all honesty it's kind of a dreary, quiet place that isn't very pretty. Maybe it has way more to offer than what meets the eye but I truly wouldn't care to stay there for more than a night passing through.

    There was a couple of RATS outside by the pool but they stayed away from people. The hot tub wasn’t working either. But the pool was GLORIOUS and the room was clean to perfection. It was a nice place to sleep in!

    I didn't see much of Nanaimo, just Petraglyph Park, before heading to Victoria. This side of Nanaimo was quiet, and I left very early. One great thing about South Nanaimo is its proximity to the Duke Point Ferry - a short drive. Also, the lack of nightlife meant my visit was quiet. I would recommend visiting Petraglyph Park. It's not easy to find it, you have to be driving on the northbound side, but it's beautiful. I've enjoyed other aspects of Nanaimo in the past, especially the Woodgrove area, and I've found people there very friendly.

    The ocean was the best part as there are many places to visit and the views are awesome. People were very friendly everywhere I went. The city is kept quite clean. Parks are nicely attended. Overall visit was very pleasant. Easy to get around having a vehicle as everything is very spread out. Piper's Cove and the harbor downtown were favorite.

    What went well? The 4 day visit from start to finish far exceeded my expectations. Darlene the owner/hostess is a wonderful person. She cooked me incredible breakfasts every morning and even sat chatting with me for a couple of hours each morning. The breakfasts were incredible and far better than eating in a restaurant. The B&B was very comfortable and made me feel right a home. Definitely the place to stay in Nanaimo, BC!!!

    I also asked for a quiet room. This did not happen. Had to ask for that. The room they put me in which was not what I paid for was an old room that was; Dirty, freezing ( I had to sleep in my sweat clothes), didn’t have the things it said it was to have not did the hotel have the things it said in the write up. When I tried to go over this when checking out the clerk just ignored me and started to do something else.

    My room was very nice and exceptionally clean. I love the view. I also saw the chamber maid and her attitude was super friendly and welcoming. Her name was Pam. She told me if I needed anything please do not hesitate to ask. She had also left a nice message with her name. I have stayed at numerous hotels thru the years. She was one of the best I have met.

    right downtown it is our regular point to stop while on transit on or off Vancouver Island. there is a vibrant restaurant scene, art and a water front walk all there. the hotel itself has choice of fine dining, a bar. there is nothing outstanding about it, but the view from some of the rooms, but it is handy, reliably clean and friendly. good value for the cost.

    The location was perfect for what we needed. Had a family member in the Hospital in Nanaimo. This location was 2km from the hospital and about the same distance from the Departure Bay Ferry Terminal. The room was spacious and minimalistic. Again it was perfect for what we needed.

    The breakfast was the best I had in my 6 weeks travelling in Canada. The room is very quiet to the back garden with chicken. Anthea is a very friendly host, who tried to help me with everything. The rooms are very nicely decorated. Nanaimo is in a short walking distance.

    The best part was the comfortable beds and the view. I also loved seeing the happy pets and will definitely come back with mine one day. I also LOVED that you had real mugs and glasses. So many hotels now have disposable ones which I hate.

    It really is on a country road with a small creek behind the large property. The host lives on the other half of the modest duplex. Downtown Nanaimo is a 15-20 minute drive but there is a supermarket and a couple of restaurants closer.

    I liked the accessibility of the hotel which is exactly off the road and it wasn't hard to find at all. The room was huge and had everything we expected in a hotel. I liked how close the restaurant is and the food was great too.

    The staff, the facilities and the attached restaurant were top notch. We would recommend this hotel to business clients and family/friends who were visiting Vancouver Island and area. The underground secure parking is a bonus.

    The location worked well for us, about 10-12 minutes from downtown Nanaimo. The suite was new and clean. Beds were new looking but firm. Host was friendly and responded to most questions quickly.
