There's no better way to explore the beauty of a region than selecting a Nanaimo hotel that's right in the heart of all the adventure. Other hotels in Nanaimo, BC might try to compete, but guests keep returning to the BEST WESTERN PLUS Dorchester Hotel because of the impeccably friendly service, location, and amenities. This Nanaimo hotel is close to the convention centre. Just a quick three-block stroll will deliver you to many popular BC events. How much more can you ask for? The Nanaimo Convention Centre isn't the only attraction that draws visitors here. The Nanaimo boat races are world-famous. Whether you prefer the Dragon Boat Race or Bath Tub Race, getting on the water (or watching from the bay) is a family-friendly must. Enjoy the views and the adrenaline pumping action of the races. The Silly Boat Regatta is a much beloved tradition. However, maybe you want something even more exciting. How about a day of bungee jumping? There's no better way to get your heart pumping. The best part is that this Nanaimo hotel is only a short drive to the best bungee spot in central Vancouver Island. There are multiple arts festivals nearby if you're looking for a little culture. This harbour view location also means that you're right across the street from the Sea Plane Terminal. Close to BC Ferries, Departure Bay and Duke Point, you've never had it better. Take full advantage of the location of your Nanaimo hotel. Conventions and meetings are the reason many guests book a stay at this Nanaimo hotel. Bring your appetite to the most important meal of the day, because steaming hot eggs and pancakes, fresh fruits and croissants, a variety of cereal and yogurt and our flavorful coffee are all featured for a nominal fee. We do offer a full a-la-carte breakfast (made to order). Reserve your next vacation at BEST WESTERN PLUS Dorchester Hotel and get ready for a trip filled with sightseeing, water sports and fun events!

Fine and Good

I really only paid $140 dollars to sleep 9 hours so please take my review with that in mind. We didn't use the amenities, didn't eat at the restaurant... really, just no time this trip. The room was great, good size. Bed comfortable. Bathroom was clean and all the bathroom stuff worked well. Noticed on one review a mention about noise in the hall- yeah, you can hear people there. Didn't really wreck my sleep none. Location was great if you are only needing to walk around the main waterfront. Close to great restaurants and coffee shops. I would come back for sure.

Staff was very good. There was little noise insulation so we could hear all that went on in the hall and next door. Chairs were uncomfortable. Location was very good. Near the harbor.

Great view of the Harbour!

Hotel staff was pleasant; when asked for a view room, they provided it. Breakfast in the hotel was excellent.
