I stayed at the hotel for two nights while attending a conference. The front desk service was warm and friendly, the kind of welcome you might receive at a B&B. My room was spacious, comfortable, quiet, well appointed and clean. My colleagues and I enjoyed drinks and dinner in the dining room on a couple of occasions. Again, the service...

The restaurant was surprisingly good; we ate there because we didn't feel like going out, but we were pleasantly surprised -- service was excellent and food...

Loved the hotel... especially the people working in all areas of the hotel. A very clean comfortable hotel with all the amenities required for a comfortable stay. Location provided opportunities for waterfront walks and was close to lots of places to eat.

We had a large room with an amazing view of the harbour. It was well worth it to pay extra for the view. The staff were friendly, and the room service was delicious. The room and hotel were very clean. We would definitely stay here again.

Great location. The hallways are old and dated but the rooms are quite nice and the staff took pride in the establishment. We felt welcome. The parking was close and easy. Walking to the downtown core made driving unnecessary.

My SO and I decided to escape the mainland and head for the island. We were not disappointed with this hotel. The room was spacious and bed comfortable. We had a nice view of the water. The hotel was quiet and comfortable. The onsite restaurant was delicious. Would highly recommend this hotel.

Nice room with 2 double beds. View of the waterfront was pretty great! Parking can be a bit sketchy with an unsecured lot beside the hotel. Restaurant in the main lobby was really nice. Had Caesars and chicken wings as a snack. Service outstanding.

Always happy to return to the Coast Bastion. I am mesmerized by the sweeping views of the harbour and islands. Close to trendy cafes and restaurants. We feel quite safe walking the downtown area at all times of the day and night.
