The room and attached bathroom were clean and a good size. We...

If you like to feel welcomed, have a comfortable room, clean surroundings, excellent conversations, delicious meals and gorgeous views then this place is for you. Cher is amazing; so hospitable - her home is your home and her homemade granola is to die for. I highly recommend this B&B.

We have stayed at many B&B's in Canada and Europe and this was wonderful. Cher makes you feel like family and provides comfortable rooms, spectacular views and delightful breakfasts. Careful planning is evident in the small refrigerators located just outside the rooms for cold beverages and lemon ice water. Sitting on the deck watching the ferries go by at night...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
*Your Home Away From home* Located in central Nanaimo, in the heart of Departure Bay, is your ultimate relaxing seaside getaway. We are 5 minutes to the Ferry (you can watch yours arrive). We are 8 minutes north of downtown and only 9 minutes south of Woodgrove Mall, the largest on Vancouver Island. We are blessed with a spectacular waterfront location overlooking Departure Bay with Jesse and Newcastle Islands and the surrounding mountains. We invite you to relax in our hot tub or take a walk down to the gazebo that's perched just above the water. Munch on complimentary cookies with tea and coffee on your private deck, surf the net using our free wireless internet, or pop in a DVD in your room at the end of a long day. We look forward to meeting you! ... more   less
