Meetings, Education & Training

“Intellectual growth should commence at birth and cease only at death." - Albert Einstein

Nanaimo is abundant with education & training opportunities, from academia at Vancouver Island University and Sprott-Shaw Community College, to Road Scholar (previously ElderHostel) and further education programs, to private arts, leisure & personal development courses. 

Are you planning Nanaimo accommodation for a seminar, meeting, conference, government, education or training event for 10-50 people?  Consider the Painted Turtle Guesthouse as a fresh, budget alternative to traditional hotel, motel or hostel accommodation.  Our ambiance suits informal business and corporate, or leisure groups.  We can also refer you to professional, unique or groovy meeting spaces on-site or a few steps away, including the Vancouver Island Conference Centre.
