The Coast Bastion is our "go to" hotel in Nanaimo. Wonderfully located and great for walking by the harbour and the views from the water-facing rooms are great. The staff are always friendly and helpful. We couldn't be happier with this property.

My wife and I stayed here last year and thought that the location, staff and comfort of this hotel were perfect. This year was no exception. I'm glad to see that the staff are as courteous as ever and the Hotel is still kept clean with comfortable rooms.

The stay at Coast Bastion Hotel was satisfactory. The room facing the harbour had given us relaxing and calming effect even without going out. The room setting made us feel comfortable. We will always choose this hotel if we need to stay in Nanaimo.
