Our family of 4 stayed for a week thoroughly enjoying our time at mgm, with Marilyn & Glenn being the perfect hosts. They are knowledgable of the island providing plenty of tips for local attractions and very personable. During the week we spotted eagles, seals, deer, killer whale (fins) and this was from the balcony! The common lounge area is ideal for relaxing, watching a movie or having a coffee and reading a book in front of the fire. The bedrooms, bathrooms were well presented and stocked. The property suited families as much as it would suit couples for a romantic break.

We spent one night with Marilyn and Glen and really hated to leave. Their view is as good as it gets. They are accomplished hosts and make you feel they enjoy your company and visiting with you. Another couple came for one night and stayed three. We wish we could have also. If you get a chance to take the Honeymoon Suite do so as it is worth the cost.

We had a great time with 5 women at this spectacular place. The home is built dramatically cascading down a rocky but accessible shoreline with several decks and seating areas to catch the setting sun and ocean view. From inside the large windows made it feel like we were on a cruise ship with unlimited water views. The common space is very open and spacious to easily spread out for relaxing and catching up. We had a good sized bar area to set up for drinks and food and comfortable furniture to gather around. The bedrooms are generously sized and very comfortable with a clean, well planned bathroom with a second one at our disposal. I was perfect for a girls night, we never left, but close enough to shopping and shorelines to explore if we had stayed longer.

After a long travel, and walk. Glenn and Marilyn welcomed us into their home with open arms, wonderful personalities and warming hearts. We stumbled upon their B and B by chance, and it was an experiance of a life time. The views was a paradise all in its own. They made us feel like we weren't just guests in their home, but more friends visiting friends for the weekend. The breakfast that they made for us, was better than any 5 star restraunt that we've ever been too. We will forever have gratitude for making our stay as special as they made it for us. We just didn't leave a B and B, we left with friends. Thank you so much Glenn and Marilyn for the amazing time.

MGM Seashore B&B Nanaimo is an excellent B&B. The hosts Marilyn and Glenn make each individual feel like an honoured guest. We have 3 children but they made each one feel special. Their B&B is in a spectacular location right beside the sea, north of Nanaimo and has spectacular views. It is decorated to a high standard and has spacious rooms with great facilities which include a comfortable lounge, hot tub, large balconies on all floors and a pool table/plenty of games. Breakfasts were delicious and Marilyn and Glenn were keen to cater for all tastes and diets.



Being from the UK, it was good to be able to meet other guests from Canada and around the world and chat, thanks to the relaxed atmosphere.



It is in a superb location for exploring the whole island. We went north to Telegraph Cove, west to Tofino and south to Victoria in day trips. However, there was more than enough to keep us occupied in the Nanaimo area. We did some wonderful hikes just up the road and went in to Nanaimo itself. A highlight of our 5 week trip to Canada for the children was fishing at Dingy Dock Restaurant on Prospect Island, just off the coast of Nanaimo, where they provide fishing rods and bait.



If we ever decide to set up a B&B then Marilyn and Glenn will certainly be our role models!

MGM B&B is a beautiful home in a quiet neighbourhood. It's a very modern house with modern, though not cold, furnishing on a stunning place right above the shore.Wonderful rooms viewing over the water of the straight to north Vancouver and Whistler mountains. Eagles right in the treetop in front of your window and wild seal "Hektor" glimpsing from the sea to look who is talking...walking from the garden between the rocks of the shore to find colorful starfish and all the tidal animals.And who is not afraid of not really warm water can swim with some care.
Hosts Marilyn and Glenn where so helpful in any respect, and as we stayed for some days, we went as friends. Finally I should mention Merilyns breakfast and Glenns all sorts of coffee's... It's not cheap, but even the top hotels can't compete...and it's absolutely worth the money. Thank you, Marilyn and Glenn
