Enjoyable stay! Loved the view of the harbor and location of the Hotel. Staff was helpful and smiling. Restaurants nearby. Felt safe - that's important! Ate down at the Harbor and also at Asteras Greek - very good!

Great location, clean and modern. BUT motion sensors in the rooms turn off the climate control units after a set period of time. We were wakened several times during the night when the unit shut off and heat built up in the room. Getting up and moving around turned on the unit again. Until this hotel eliminates these sensors, I...

We only stayed one night, but had a very nice stay. The room was large, with a nicer washroom that most hotels. The location - right on the harbour - is great. Dinner at the hotel restaurant was very good.

Best Hotel in Nanaimo, especially for business trips. Service is always very good. Front Staff always very helpful, and bartenders are extremely friendly. Menu could use a bit of a change. I have been staying at this Hotel for over 8 years, and menu hasn't changed too much, but quality is good.

I stayed at the hotel for two nights while attending a conference. The front desk service was warm and friendly, the kind of welcome you might receive at a B&B. My room was spacious, comfortable, quiet, well appointed and clean. My colleagues and I enjoyed drinks and dinner in the dining room on a couple of occasions. Again, the service...

My wife and I stayed there in their King Suite room (corner room, harbour view). Room was spectacular, hotel was great. The Fitness room was good (not the best I have seen, but good). The restaurant was surprisingly good; we ate there because we didn't feel like going out, but we were pleasantly surprised -- service was excellent and food...

Loved the hotel... especially the people working in all areas of the hotel. A very clean comfortable hotel with all the amenities required for a comfortable stay. Location provided opportunities for waterfront walks and was close to lots of places to eat.
