We thoroughly enjoyed our visit to Bastion. Excellent food, a great view, and a clean well maintained facility. From the front staff, to the restaurant, we enjoyed our visit very much. Highly recommend this Hotel.
The hotel was awesome! It was very clean. The room and view were great! The staff were fantastic! The location was perfect and central. We had a great trip and would definitely stay again and will recommend staying there to our friends and family.
Best View of the Harbour
If you’re looking for a view of the harbour this is the place to be. We were in room 1010 and it was perfect. Large spacious area with a big bathroom. Here are many restaurants surrounding here as well. My husband loved walking the floats.
