The Painted Turtle Guesthouse offers visitors to Nanaimo unique and memorable accommodation, and strives to offer our guests an experience.
The Painted Turtle Guesthouse is a true home away from home, where guests are likely to feel an immediate sense of community and meet like-minded people from the region and around the world. We offer common area amenities that encourage converstion and interaction, making it easy for world travellers to have an experience which is shared with other guests. We welcome single travelers, families, all couples, active seniors and business people – the common thread is that all our guests are looking for an affordable, clean and comfortable place to stay in the City of Nanaimo.
The Guesthouse offers affordable, lifestyle-oriented accommodation to each and every guest. We pride ourselves in offering warm hospitality, clean comfort and basic amenities you bring the ‘extras’. All linens, towels and furnishings are provided. Like other European-style heritage buildings, none of our rooms offer ensuite bathrooms – guests share clean, well-appointed private use washrooms and showers.
The Painted Turtle Guesthouse is an integral part of historic downtown Nanaimo and the greater Vancouver Island community. Offering great Canadian hospitality along with essential travelers’ amenities and services, the Guesthouse can arrange and book a number of tourist or adventure activities on British Columbia’s spectacular Vancouver Island – everything from sailing charters to scenic hiking in Nanaimo, to wildlife viewing and surfing in Tofino; whale watching and day trips to Victoria.
The Painted Turtle Guesthouse is more than just accommodation – we have proven ourselves as a favourite traveller’s destination and a must stop for travellers to Vancouver Island.
