Hotel Story

Best Western Dorchester

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® 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. Reserve your next vacation at Best Western® Dorchester Hotel and get ready for a trip filled with sightseeing, water sports and fun events! Recommended to check in through main entrance first, unload your luggage, and then park. For the health and safety of our guests our complimentary hot breakfast buffet is suspended until further notice. Grab & Go breakfast package is available for hotel guests at front desk from 6:30 to 10 a.m.
