We chose this B&B after reading Tripadvisors reviews. Ours was a short visit with a late arrival and a relatively early departure en route from Whistler to Tofino, so we did not have too much time to enjoy the conveniences of this very pleasant B&B. Our room was extremely clean and the linens spotless, (one of the first things my... More

Our second story comfortable room at the front of the home had a view of the harbor. Owner/hostess Anya prepared wonderful breakfasts, Belgian waffles topped by bananas flambe, whipped cream and fresh mixed-berry compote the first morning. The second day she accommodated guests with their preference of poached egg on the smoked salmon Benedicts with an exquisite hollandaise sauce, fresh... More

It's been said many times already in the reviews below but in summary: good location for the ferry, nice people, great breakfast. Would recommend this B&B to others, much better than a large chain hotel.

If you go to Nanaimo this B&B is definitely THE place to stay. If you don’t go to Nanaimo, well, better change your itinerary; otherwise you’re going to miss out on the winner of our tour in respect of breakfast (d-e-l-i-c-i-o-u-s, and don’t think you would get the same breakfast twice; no, too boring), very comfortable beds (and as a...

Stayed here just before leaving Nanaimo as it was convenient for the ferry. It also turns out to be very comfortable, with fun owners and great breakfasts. We had a lovely time and would definitely be staying here next time we visit Vancouver Island

We had a fantastic stay with Ingvar and Ania, a very hospitable couple. Our room was beautiful (Provence) overlooking the docks and bay. Breakfast was amazing, an assortment of tastes, waffles, scones, bacon, sausage patty, eggs benedict, fresh fruit and yogurt and homemade jam, all delicious and cooked by Ania. Excellent location, less than 5 minutes drive from the docks.

The hospitality show by Ania an Ingvar was exceptional. They have a lovely home and 2 great guest rooms. We had the one overlooking the front of the huge towards the docks and bay. The room is very comfortable and the breakfast is huge so bring your appetite with you as Ania cooks up a storm

As others have said, the breakfast is one to put in my book of memories. Although I travel a lot and, consequently, eat out a lot, I can honestly say that the attention to detail as well as the combination of tastes for the breakfast was perfect. My daughter and I talked about it for the rest of our 10-day... More

Its hard to know where to start as we had a fantastic stay. Ingvar and Ania are lovely couple who did everything possible to make our stay comfortable. Our first morning started with Ingvar talking us through the correct order of assembly for our home made waffles, made Ania. This was a waffle, freshly flambed bananas, dollop of whipped cream,...

I will simply start by saying the host is a trained French Chef - the breakfasts are amazing!!! That alone is worth the money you pay to stay here. The rooms are nice but to be honest, a bit small (ours was upstairs and had slanted ceiling - I kept bumping my head in the bathroom). Again, we are talking... More

Thanks for your advice on possible improvements to our little B&B. It is easy for us to miss those when the vast majority of folks comment that they love the intimacy of our rooms and the lushness of our rambling gardens. That joyful Clematis Armandii “Snowdrift” has an absolute passion for the cheerful sunshine of the Provence Room balcony and,... More
