We stayed at the Grand Hotel Nanaimo on a Saturday evening to find out dispite what their website states under amenities there was no heated pool. When asked about it we were told quite rudely that they are not associated with travel sites. We talked to staff the next morning to find out they were told the pool is in...

Hotel is in an fairly good location, not down town but still "in town". However, the hotel is aged and for the rate per night, a continental breakfast should be included. Having said that, the rooms are very nice, dated but classy, large and airy with a mini-fridge and comfortable amenities for the traveller!

The room we were allocated had a really awful smell of what appeared to be a mixture of stale sweat, damp and burned plastic. The three pillows looked as though they had been slept on before. The bedspread was stained and a folded piece of paper was found in the bed. I reported all this and was offered another room...

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,...
