Pro " Everything was great, and Anthea was very accommodating. She picked me up at the ferry terminal and dropped me back there. The room was cozy, clean and comfortable. Breakfast was delicious including homemade bread and fresh eggs from her backyard chickens. The location allowed me to see Nanaimo on foot. There is a lovely garden out back that Anthea encouraged me to enjoy. She clearly enjoys running a B&B. "

Pro " We have stayed at the property before and love it. For a place located in the city, the seclusion of the trees makes it feel as though you are somewhere else. The hosts are wonderful and accommodating. I did find the coffee much too strong for my tastes but that is the worst I can say about our stay. "
