Welcome to coast bastion hotel

Enjoy ocean views in our downtown Nanaimo hotel

Experience downtown Nanaimo, BC like never before at Coast Bastion Hotel. Perched right on the scenic waterfront, our hotel offers awe-inspiring harbour and ocean views, as well as easy access to everything that makes Vancouver Island so unique.

We love our city, and we want you to love it too; nothing is more important to us than providing you with a Refreshingly Local™ experience. (Case in point: we have our own beehives on site, which we use to produce delicious house-made honey.)

Throw in pet-friendly accommodations featuring ocean views, exceptional dining and versatile event venues (including the largest ballroom in Nanaimo) and you’ve got a recipe for an unforgettable experience.

You can also feel good knowing that we’re dedicated to protecting the planet, with our Refreshingly Green™ program of environmentally sustainable hotel practices. 

Mandatory Mask: Masks are required in all public spaces within Coast Hotels properties. Many municipalities have mask protocols in place. Please ensure you are aware of, and observe, all local requirements. For more information on our COVID-19 response, click here.
