Coast Bastion Hotel
Room with an incredible view!
For the best views, one must stay in any room with the number 11. However, should you be celebrating a special occasion (i.e. our 27th wedding anniversary), do let the staff know as they went out of their way to make our stay special by giving us the very best room (1511). We were also treated to Nanaimo Bars which originated in Nanaimo. Both awesome!
The location is absolutely perfect and within walking distance to just about everything. The staff are very friendly, helpful and professional as soon as once walks into the lobby.
Stayed one night at the Coast Bastion in Nanaimo as we were visiting cathedral Grove (incredible place!).
Our room had 2 queen beds which was lovely. Though clean the floor and the rooms had a bit of an odour. Our view was the roof of a small part of the hotel with garbage on the roof.
Had to call the front desk twice at about 4:30 in the morning as apparently maintenance was doing some work which awakened us. The young woman who answered was very polite and apologetic however the incidence was very irritating. I did mention both the incident and the odour to the gentleman at the front desk when we checked out.
Perfect Location, Best Hotel in Nanaimo
The Coast is simply the best hotel in Nanaimo and is the best option you have if your are looking for comfort and cleanliness. It is right by the front the harbour and the bastion. If you are lucky enough you can get a room with harbour view (The hotel was fully booked !). This hotel is an old one but has been fully renovated. The furniture in the room are new and the washrooms has newer equipments. The food in the restaurant was delicious. For parking you have to to go to the public parking right by the hotel but there is a short walk. Internet speed was ok for checking your email but not for watching live streams! (my one complain! ) Not to forget friendly staff. All in all, perfect hotel for your stay in Nanaimo.
Excellent hotel in a great location
We stayed here for just one night and were not dissapointed. It is a very nice hotel and has an excellent location to the harbour and downtown as well as a straight shoot to the ferry, which makes it very convienient for everything you want to do in Nanaimo.
The room was nice, clean and had very confortable beds. it also had a nice view of the harbour, which is about a 2min walk out the front door.
Good value and would stay there again for sure.
A great hotel
My wife and I checked into this hotel after we read recommendations in Tripadvisor. We were not disappointed. We got a bright, spacious room on the 14th floor overlooking the harbor. Everything is so clean and very well appointed. The room came with a refrigerator and and a safe deposit box. We requested a microwave and it was delivered very promptly. The staff is very courteous and helpful. We highly recommend this hotel.
