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.

We consider ourselves adventurers who want to live without the regret of “I wonder what would have happened ...”
