About us

About the Property

The Nimpkish Hotel is an historic building in Alert Bay with a colorful past. We are located on the water as our spacious and peaceful deck extends over the shoreline on the Broughton Strait facing the east side of Vancouver Island.

The view from our deck, sunroom and balconies gives our guests a front row seat to what the locals call ‘the movie’ as the panoramic scene is endlessly entertaining. Our 9 luxurious, comfortable rooms are the ideal place for our guests to unplug, unwind and rest. Start your day with a complimentary, fresh continental breakfast.

About the Hosts

We  have chosen to take over the Nimpkish Hotel because of our background in the hotel and food industry. My husband William and I worked for Royal Caribbean cruise lines where we met. I am a Tibetan born in the Himalayan foothills of India. My husband William who is a Canadian and a Ship's Captain brought me and my daughter  to Canada. We decided to resign from the Cruise Lines  and start working within Canada and support my daughter through the last years of school. Since I have been here in Canada I have opened a few restaurants in Victoria and Campbell River. I am proud to have been featured as the first Asian Chef on Food network Canada's "You Gotta Eat Here"
we are very proud to announce the opening of our waterfront dining room with a International menu. .
Restaurant will be open for Breakfast and Dinner.
We look forward to meeting and serving you great food.
Thank you.
Pemba and William
