    The location is great - there is free parking provided (as stated online)

    The coffee maker provided in the room(s) is soo dusty I was too afraid to even use it - there was no breakfast provided ( for both days) -when I booked it stated it would be included. And no cleaning service for the rooms where provided yet I got charged for it. And distance charge - although I live locally. What? The doors where always locked - which would have been fine ( if the people answering the doors didn’t look like they where soo annoyed answering it.

    Room upgrade was lovely

    No fault of the hotel, but due to Covid-19, there were very few dining options...anywhere.

    The staff was amazing and friendly. We made a late night booking because of a family emergency and they were wonderful accommodating us

    The floors seemed a little wonky.

    Newly renovated very quaint room. Super comfy bed.

    Restaurant was open for pick up orders but they were so busy we couldn’t contact them to place an order. The shower had limited water pressure/flow.

    The front desk clerk appreciated out physical distancing when we arrived as much as we do during this covid-19 time. he sanitised the debit machine since it wasn't a "tap". He did his best!

    We realise that everything has changed since the covid-19 pandemic but paying full price for a hotel that was supposed to have a full hot breakfast should have been handled differently. Since there wasn't that many guests staying there, being able to order breakfast and having it sent up to our door would have been a viable option. Just having a muffin, juice box & granola bar was a poor substitute for a hot breakfast that you paid for. The hotel should have said something on the booking about this or at least offered a major discount to the price

About

Overview

There's no better way to explore the beauty of a region than selecting a Nanaimo hotel that's right in the heart of all the adventure. Other hotels in Nanaimo, BC might try to compete, but guests keep returning to the Best Western® Dorchester Hotel because of the impeccably friendly service, location, and amenities. This Nanaimo hotel is close to the convention centre. Just a quick three-block stroll will deliver you to many popular BC events. How much more can you ask for? The Nanaimo Convention Centre isn't the only attraction that draws visitors here. The Nanaimo boat races are world-famous. Whether you prefer the Dragon Boat Race or Bath Tub Race, getting on the water (or watching from the bay) is a family-friendly must. Enjoy the views and the adrenaline pumping action of the races. The Silly Boat Regatta is a much beloved tradition. However, maybe you want something even more exciting. How about a day of bungee jumping? There's no better way to get your heart pumping. The best part is that this Nanaimo hotel is only a short drive to the best bungee spot in central Vancouver Island. There are multiple arts festivals nearby if you're looking for a little culture. This harbour view location also means that you're right across the street from the Sea Plane Terminal. Close to BC Ferries, Departure Bay and Duke Point, you've never had it better. Take full advantage of the location of your Nanaimo hotel. Conventions and meetings are the reason many guests book a stay at this Nanaimo hotel. Bring your appetite to the most important meal of the day, because steaming hot eggs and pancakes, fresh fruits and croissants, a variety of cereal and yogurt and our flavorful coffee are included in your rate. Reserve your next vacation at Best Western® Dorchester Hotel and get ready for a trip filled with sightseeing, water sports and fun events! Recommended to check in through main entrance first, unload your luggage, and then park. For the health and safety of our guests our complimentary hot breakfast buffet is suspended until further notice. Grab & Go breakfast package is available for hotel guests at front desk from 6:30 to 10 a.m.
