Stayed at Bayview for a night when on our honeymoon. It was a lovely break from the humdrum of the chain hotels we'd stayed in, and suited us perfectly! When we visited BC was in the middle of a heatwave, so all we wanted to do was relax, and this was perfect. We arrived mid afternoon, settled in, watched the... More

First, the good points: the owner is very friendly and received us warmly. The breakfast is continental, but there was a lot of choice and it was quite good. Then, the less good points: the room was quite humit, the towels didn't smell very good (one actually smelled bad, I think it wasn't cleaned up after previous guests), and the... More

Anthea S, Owner at Bayview Terrace, responded to this review

I'm sorry that your stay with us was less-than-perfect but I do feel that some explanation from me, as your host at Bayview Terrace, is warranted. Of course, guest towels are washed after each guest leaves, along with all bed linen and robes. It would be ludicrous to suggest that I would not wash one towel, which is just a... More

Very comfortable room we had - with a separate entrance from main residence....quiet and clean. The breakfasts were very healthy and filling - fabulous fruit and spreads for bread...even gluten free options. Thanks Anthea and Daisy the 'puppy'

My husband and I took a trip to Nanaimo and stayed at Bayview Terrace. We chose this b and b because of the view. It turned out to be a very good choice. The hosts, Anthea and Al, were very welcoming. They had a small friendly dog. I have dogs and hers was a good deal better behaved than mine... More

Nice place with a good view for reasonable rates. Only complaint was traffic on the street below but nothing major. Breakfast was good. Friendly hosts. Beautiful place and close to the bay. Would stay there again.

My husband and I stayed at this b & b during August. The accommodation was extremely comfortable with a high standard of facilities. We loved having our own patio with its barbecue and fantastic views over the bay. Anthea and Al were perfect hosts - welcoming but not intrusive and the breakfasts were to die for with fresh fruits and... More

I have stayed at this B&B twice and found it to be a delightful place to park to explore this area of Vancouver Island. The large, comfy room we stayed in (the Mount Benson room) is at the end of the house and is as quiet and peaceful as you can possibly imagine. It has a patio, with a view... More

We decided to stay at this b and b because we felt that it would give us a more personal stay than just an anonymous hotel room. The view from the room was great and there was easy access from the property down to the beach. The beds were very comfortable with high quality linens. It was nice to have... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
A Departure Bay Beach landmark overlooking the beach, our stunning architect designed bed and breakfast offers unobstructed ocean views from every room. Bayview Terrace B&B; is conveniently located - 8 minutes drive from the ferry, 10 minutes to downtown Nanaimo, shopping, restaurants, and the casino. Nanaimo Golf course is a 5 minute drive away and there are many, many golf courses within a half hour drive. Our Nanaimo accommodations allow you to enjoy all the comforts of home in any of our three luxurious rooms. The Newcastle Suite, with its own kitchenette and ensuite bathroom, The Mount Benson Room with a built-in kitchenette and separate bathroom, and The Christina Room with limited kitchen facilities and a shared bathroom. Both the suite and the Mount Benson Room have their own entrance from private patios with propane barbecues at garden level. Guests can relax on their private patio, or on the large ocean-view guest sundeck with ornamental pond. Enjoy the terraced gardens with its fishpond, or take the steps through the garden that lead you on a one minute walk to watch the seals and sea otters from the beach. The many trees on our property allow complete privacy and seclusion whilst allowing panoramic ocean views. Each room has a queen bed with down duvet and 100% cotton linens. We can provide airbeds to also accommodate up to two children in the Newcastle Suite. In high season (May through September) continental++ breakfast is served in our ocean-view dining room or on the main sundeck. Breakfast includes fresh-baked breads, croissants, muffins and pastries, fruit, yogurt, cheese, cereal, muesli and granola, and of course, juice, coffee, hot chocolate and a selection of teas. Daily housekeeping and breakfast are included in our high season rates. Because we've found that most of our guests don't wish to share a bathroom with strangers, The Christina Room cannot be booked on its own. Guests who book only the Mount Benson Room will have exclusive use of the full bathroom. ... more   less
