Great Visit to a Fantastic Hotel!

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.

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.
