“A1 stay in Chemanius”
Reviewed 2 January 2011

The two ladies at the desk when we arrived were so friendly and nice to us,
The hotel was decorated for Christmas with a beauiful tree in the foyer. We even had a "little Christmas" tree on our dining table in our suite! It sure gave us a "home feeling".
There were two big windows and french doors out to a nice balcony overlooking the harbour with it's working people loading lumber at the dock. We truly enjoyed the suite.
The bed was nice with two big pillows, not the "flat nothing" pillows you get in many hotels. After a good sleep we went downstairs to an eating area and helped us self to a beautiful breakfast with everything.You could even make your own Belgium Waffle!

Thank you for your very kind rating via the Tripadvisor survey site which I received today.

Thank you so much, we will pass the survey on to our staff; they I am sure will also be most appreciative.

Feedback from our guests is an important tool for us in evaluating our service and facilities.
Guest direct feedback is often the only way that we hear from valuable guests such as yourself, and is a way for us to become aware of inefficiencies that may have crept into our people oriented service operation. Again thank you for your compliments!!
Lou R. GM


We hope to see you back soon enjoying yourself at our Inn.

Well, I've never stayed here before. Upon arriving, my 1st impressions were "wow, very nice". The lobby is spacious and well decorated. The staff is very friendly & helpful. The room I was in #321 has 9 foot ceilings and very nicely laid out. The hotel hallways are maintained well. There is an indoor pool. The conti/breakfast is from 7 - 9 and it has a good selection. The parking is not bad. This is perhaps the best Best Western on Vancouver island. 10 minutes to Duncan and 20 minutes to Nanaimo. I give it 2 thumbs up.

We have been to the BW Chemainus Festival inn, and this is our second visit. We had 4 adults in the family suite and it was very well set up. Kitchen, sitting room & 2 bedrooms,& one bath. It would be nice if they had 2 baths for this type of room. There is no balcony nor special view. The room met our needs. We enjoyed the excellent breakfast that was offered. We were most thankful to the General Mgr for helping us find an item we had lost. The mgr & stafff were excellent in their effort not to give up and went the extra mile it assist us. Therefore, how can one say this place is not a great place to stay when the GM sets such a good example of customer service to his staff. No wonder it is #1 choice in Chemainus. Upon return to the VI, we would not think twice to reserve a room at this hotel. Highly recommend and look at their wonderful packages being offered.

My sister and Brother-in-law from Powell River, niece and great niece from Moose Jaw and myself from Kamloops, stayed in a wonderful suite on July 2, The room was spacious, and had all the comforts of home. I must remark on your staff, they were the best, especially, the 2 young ladies upon check-in and check-out.
Breakfast was great, great value with room price.

I will return again, thank you for the great stay and the kindness shown to my young niece.

...has everything but a view.

Stayed here August 13, 2010 with my two sisters who were attending a concert at the Cowichan Exhibition Park.

The rooms were immaculate (very important in a hotel) and the duvets and the beds very comfortable. One thing I noticed was that there was a great variety of lighting from floor lamps to task lighting over the stovetop (provided by the microwave - including a nite lite setting). Most hotels have inadequate lighting, but this hotel has done a very good job of lighting the room.

The kitchen was very well equipped and had a microwave, fridge and dishwasher (all stainless steel) as well as a small 2-burner stovetop.

The bathroom was small, but again, very clean, and it did have the newer curved shower curtain rod (makes the shower feel much roomier).

Staff was great. I highly recommend this hotel.

This hotel was a real GEM! It is in "new" condition and the room we stayed in had a seperate bedroom, pullout sofa bed, and full kitchen facilities. The breakfast was excellent with extra touches like fresh fruit, eggs, and waffles.....not your standard continental fare!! We stayed 4 nights, and our room was cleaned perfectly every day even though we had tons of luggage and child care items left out in the unit. The staff was very friendly and accomodating. Do not hesitate to stay at this hotel.....I know I will be back.
