Friendly, helpful staff. Beautiful old hotel, made modern. Excellent location for someone to experience downtown Naniamo. Staff was waiting for me as I was very late arriving. They new I was coming and was completely prepared. I was in my room within minutes.

the room was comfortable, oddly shaped, clean, unable to watch tv from the bed as it was on the wall next to the bed. The lounge was open for meal times only and closed on a Saturday night at 8 pm. Getting home from a dinner meeting and wanting to relax with a glass of wine in the lounge was out of the question -very strange for a weekend night.

Awesome service! The bed was very comfortable and the room very clean and relaxing. I travel with a pet and found this hotel to be very welcoming to me and my pet...Made such an impression I went and told my friends immediately. Will go out of my way to stay there.

My husband and I recently stayed here this past May long weekend . We had three nights at this hotel and it was a perfect stay. The front end staff are fabulous and accommodating , they are helpful and offer advise on good places - things to try . The lady who works in the restaurant in the hotel is feisty and good at her job - we thoroughly enjoyed meeting her. Our room had a Harbour view and it was great . The room is smaller but clean , nice amenities , I found the ceiling in the bathroom to... Read more

Near the harbour and close to lots of amenities, including the conference centre. Clean comfortable room and friendly staff. Have stayed there before and will stay there again. Good value for the price.

Finding your room can be a challenge in this hotel. My room had no view, just a wall of a building. There is no free breakfast, the cable selection is ok, but TV is small. I am not a fan of the bulk containers with shampoo and cream, just seems less clean for me. The pub in the hotel is small and not very comfortable. The restaurant is mediocre, I would suggest going to other restaurants nearby.

Stayed here for one night on business in room 407 which looks directly across to the Coast hotel but does offer a limited view of the harbour. The hotel is right in the old downtown area just steps to the waterfront. Check in was friendly and relatively quick.Despite being an older property the lobby area is fairly inviting. The internet access was above average in terms of stability and speed. The room while small had many accessible power outlets, a fridge and everything worked. Water pressur... Read more

I was a first time visitor to Nanaimo. My flight arrived very late, 12:00 a.m, and I was to leave at 4:00 a.m. I was expecting a good nights rest and if I had known that me paying extra for the harbour view would put me right by the noisy road and a little ways away from a theatre (that was hosting a ladies night), I would not have done just that. I kept the curtains closed to try and eliminate noise but it wasn't helping. The hotel itself was very great but I didn't get a good nights sleep, whi... Read more

My wife and I had our Honeymoon at this Hotel 19 years ago and have stayed here every time we have come up to Nanaimo. its been 10 years or so but the hotel is eve better!! the accommodations for our two little West Highland Terriers was over the top. I think they had more fun than we did.

Excellent location in the Historic Arts District and the water front, marina with lots of mid range and superior dinning. Museums and the Port Theatre easy walking distance. Friendly staff, onsite restaurant good value.

This hotel is in a fantastic location, it's right downtown, with parking and ocean views from some rooms. I have stayed here many times and always happy, although some of the rooms are the size of a broom closet and if there had been two of us in one of those I would have been upset. The staff are very friendly, and the fitness room is decent. The bar is fine for a drink, but I wouldn't recommend the food, there are plenty of better places to eat within a few minute walk.

Stayed at the BW because we couldn't get into the Coast. We booked a view suite that looked directly into wires and trees - view was a bit of a stretch. First thing that struck us was the musty old smell everywhere. When we arrived home and opened our suitcases that smell hit us and we had to launder our clean clothes. The suite was spacious but very plain and updated with poor grade materials. The soap in the bathroom was the cheapest you could provide plus the shampoo and conditioner wa... Read more

Stayed at this hotel for 3 nights. My room was small with a low ceiling. The bed are ok. The service is bad especially the cleaning. They don't know how to make a bed. Look at the pictures 2 days in a row when I came back in the room in the evening. This is not worth the price for a this Best Western.

a nice heritage complex, but has it's aged issues. One for me was the musty smell every where. The small room we had on 2nd floor. and the maze of stairs and halls The place aside from that was clean, had nice staff and was in the right location for us. Would of been a bonus to have more tables, recliners and maybe a hot tub on the roof top.

This is a hotel you know has been here for a long while. The rooms are small but are great for what we needed it was updated in most areas and is clean. We had a king size bed a partial view of the park and ocean so we had no complaints. The staff at reception was very welcoming and informative. We had dinner at the restaurant which was very good and our server was a pleasure to talk to. We loved the location we could walk around the shops and the ocean and be in walking distance to the hotel. I... Read more

We stayed at the Dorchester for two nights. Although a bit old, you won't find a better located hotel in Nanaimo (except for its more expensive neighbour). Friendy staff. We didn't eat at the restaurant though, way too expensive while there are enough alternatives in the neighbourhood.

I was directed to this hotel by a neighbouring hotel when we had become stranded accidentally on the island. We were a definitely a last minute reservation but that didn't faze the wonderful front desk agents. The hotel itself is a bit older but has a gorgeous lobby and great rooms. The staff are what's really the best and just great, check in with Drew was quick and easy, and he really does make you feel welcomed! I checked out with Jason and he was greatly helpful and a gentleman, and offere... Read more

Great location in old town Nanaimo. Short walk from inner harbour, which has a boardwalk type walkway around it. Just a short walk from the Harbour Air seaplane terminal if that is your mode of transportation. Lots of local restaurants and shops nearby.Boutique style hotel with friendly staff and good service. Certainly an option to consider when visiting Nanaimo and the central Island area.

We stayed for one night. The hotel is in a great location. It is older, but very charming and the room was clean. My only complaint would be the restaurant. We went for dinner on Saturday night and the food was not great. We went for breakfast the next morning. Breakfaststarted at 8am and we arrived at 8:05. There were about 7 tables already seated and the server was panicking. We waited 40 mins for our breakfast which was not great. I had sausage and eggs and the sausages were deep fri... Read more

We found the hotel was very clean and the rooms were small but comfortable for our 1 night stay. We arrived late to the hotel so we did have to park 2 blocks away but we were reimbursed for our parking by the hotel. The hotel does advertise a lounge but it was closed when we arrived at 10pm on a Friday.
