Fantastic decor in an old world style that evokes England. I fantastic selection of scotch whiskies and a staff that gives the guest special attention. Barkley the dog welcomes you when you arrive too! The rooms are spacious and the food is good too.

We spent one night at The Grand Hotel after spending several fun but noisy days in Victoria. We wanted peace & quiet and comfort and we found it at The Grand. Our room was on the 3rd floor at the back of the building and we had a lovely view of a mossy rock face. Our room had a microwave,... More

I recently stayed at the Grand Hotel in Nanaimo on business. This was my second visit to this hotel. I chose to come back because the food was excellent in the restaurant. It proved to be true again this time around. I had both lunch and dinner and the meals were very tasty and the service was great. The hotel... More

We were recently at The Grand for a group function. I can't say enough great things. The rooms were spacious and impeccably clean, with its own seating area in our room! The function itself was top-notch, from the decor to the service. The group was large and our glasses didn't go empty. Every employee was polite and courteous and the... More

The Grand Hotel has taken this project under their wing to support Crimson Coast Dance Society and build one of Nanaimo's most elegant events each year! The perfect match of a 13 year old Fundraising Whisk(e)y tasting and The Grand's sense of quality and experience (they do have a Whisk(e)y Bar that features over 125 labels!) has elevated this event...

I would not recommend this hotel to anyone-ever! The reception was very rude and no help at all. We stayed in one of their 'updated' rooms which only had newer nightstands and dresser, the carpet and other finishings were outdated and worn. No screens on the windows so bugs could come in. Tile was cracked in bathroom, grout was exposed/cracking... More

My husband and I recently stayed at The Grand and we were very impressed. The room was spacious, clean and quiet. We had drinks in the lounge which was very comforting and relaxing. Dinner in the restaurant was amazing. One of our party asked for a dish not on the menu and the chef accommodated her request to perfection. The... More

I loved the ambiance of this hotel. The service in the restaurant was superb, food wasn't bad. I'd rate the eggs benedict a 3/5. It was elegant and quaint though the lobby area was a bit overwhelming with "stuff" that made it a bit overwhelming to find your way at first to elevator and restaurant. Once you are accustomed though... More
