Hotel was modern and clean AND air conditioned. In 26-28 C weather it was nice to be in a cool place for the night. The room service breakfast arrived on time and hot! Location was perfect; close to Gabriola Ferry and easy access to the highway for our return trip to Victoria Airport.

This hotel is a perfect location on the water front harbor in Nanaimo. You can walk to the main street for breakfast or to the water front for a nice walk to look at the boats. I would come back again.

Nice room. Room has all the amenities. Found the bed a bit hard. Great location for a waterfront walk. Overlooks the marina if you get the right view. Would stay there again. Staff was among the best I have seen.

Everything went smoothly, the room was ready at check in, parking was available, reception staff were great. The view from the room over the harbour was spectacular and the hotel is central to everything we needed and wanted. I will definitely stay here on my next trip to Nanaimo.
