Great location across the street from the waterfront, attentive service, clean rooms - the banquet supper was a carved roast buffet which was fantastic. I have stayed here in the past and will stay again.

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 2 weeks ago

The Coast Bastion is absolutely the best hotel in Nanaimo if not the entire Island. Our favourite room is the panoramic view ones on the upper floors. This time we had 1511 and the views over the harbour are beautiful even when the fog came in one morning. The restaurant has excellent service and the food we had was delicious...

Stayed here on May 18th. We checked in very late and the gentleman who checked us in was very welcoming and informative. Room was very clean and comfortable, and had an amazing view. Check out was easy peasy and front desk staff were very friendly. 10/10. Love staying at this location.

I had no idea what to expect, but was pleasantly surprised by my stay. The rooms were comfortable, the hotel updated and the staff were lovely. I will definitely pick here first when I need to return to Nanaimo.

The hotel is nicely located in downtown facing the Harbor. Just a short walk to restaurants and Old Town. A real value luxury in a nice community. The helpful staff is truly interested making sure you have a good time while you stay here.

Only chose to stay here as a stopping off point between Victoria and Telegraph Cove to avoid a 5 hour drive and wasn't expecting too much. However we had a great room (1110) overlooking the harbour which had a fantastic view. The room had everything we could have wished for and the best wifi since we arrived in Canada, and...

We enjoyed one night in Nanaimo and wanted to bring our dog. Coast Bastion was great property with dog walking park in the marina across the street. We did happy hour in the restaurant and food and drinks were good.

Thank you for staying with us before you headed off to Tofino, we are a nice stop to be at especially with the harbor across the street from us that has a great walking trail. Hope you also enjoyed Tofino.

I only found out AFTER I had paid for the non-refundable reservation that the cost was in US dollars, even though I booked on the particular hotel's Canadian website. Not Happy! Could have got it cheaper elsewhere.

In Nanaimo on business I had a multi-day stay at this hotel and was, on balance, pleased with it. The location is ideal, downtown across the road from the famous HBC bastion after which it takes its name. I had been a bit dubious what was meant by a "partial" view from the room but in fact it had a...

Thank you for the review, I am happy that you enjoyed the restaurant, but very surprised that our bellman could not give you accurate information on where the nearest laundry facility is frustrating, we will make sure they know where they are located. Thank you again for letting us know about your experience, thank you again for staying with us...

Always have a great stay here. Front desk is efficient and friendly. Rooms are updated and the restaurant has great food if you don't feel like heading out. It is a convenient location. I always use the valet parking as it is a bit of a pain otherwise.
