My husband and I stayed at this lovely bed and breakfast just over a week ago after attending our daughters wedding in Tofino. A very quiet location and lovely patio area out the back for relaxing. James provided a fantastic breakfast and great conversation, sorry we couldn't have stayed longer. Would highly recommend this B n B.

We stayed at this great B&B last week, and were amazed at what we found - a really lovely, peaceful setting, right on a little lake 5min from downtown Nanaimo. Great views from the windows, a full suite, nicely done and very clean and comfortable, for the price of a basic hotel room, plus a gourmet breakfast (special care given... More

We stayed for one night in James & Allison house. A huge space is intended to receive guests (it's a flat, not only a bed !). One or two gorgeous rooms can receive two to four persons. When tired, you can select a DVD that you'll watch in your bed. James may provide you with a canoe for a little... More

A fab place to stay a short drive from downtown Nanaimo. Loads of space for a family of four and everything lovely and comfy and clean. Loved being on edge of lake with bonus of canoe. The breakfast was just amazing - one of best I have ever had in a b&b. Alison and James were great recommending where to... More

We have used Dockside a few times now, whenever we are in Nanaimo for kids' sports activities. This past weekend we were watching the Summer Games. The quiet patio was perfect spot to relax at the end of the afternoon, or to enjoy a morning cup of coffee. Breakfast was awesome and we enjoyed the selection of DVD movies and... More

Gracious hosts. Pleasant suburban neighborhood just minutes off the highway and minutes from downtwon Nanaimo, on the shore of a small lake. Everything is clean and works. Huge huge amount of space: a full kitchen with a small dining area, big full bathroom, living room with a sofa, and a sizeable bedroom; most of those rooms have at least one... More

We stayed there for only 1 night, but we were lucky that we have choosen this B&B on our journey. The B&B is nicely located on a small lake, just minutes by car from downtown Nanaimo. The hosts, Alison and James, are very helpful and the breakfast is just awesome. There is a lot to see in Nanaimo and I... More

After having read the previous reviews for the Dockside Bed & Breakfast, we booked our single night stay with high expectations. We were not disappointed at all! James & Alison were delightful, the suite was clean & spacious, and the view over the lake was very enjoyable as we ate our supper on our little patio. We loved the little... More

Very peaceful along the water, Very nice hosts. We stayed in a small apartment, with 1 bedroom, 1 couch and large kitchen. You can canoe there and the distance to the city ctr is not far to drive. As much as Victoria and Tofino are full with tourists, the stay was really peaceful and we regretted not to have stayed... More
