The hotel was perfect – clean and modern. It had everything we needed. The bathroom had very good lighting. The bed was so comfortable. Enjoyed the lounge and the bartender/server Adam was awesome and made our night very enjoyable!

Great location with a beautiful view!

I stayed there for 4 nights for a conference. Everything about this property was outstanding with one exception: the AV equipment was outdated and every day there were problems with the equipment. I would love to return there for more training but not until they update their AV equipment.


Great value

We enjoyed our stay at the Bastion Coast Hotel. The staff was friendly and attentive, our room was spacious and comfortable and we had a great view of the harbor. The hotel was conveniently with located with shopping and restaurants near by. Thank you.

Great Coastal Hotel

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this lovely accommodation. We had a corner room on the
5th floor. Very spacious with beautiful windows to overlook the harbor.
A walk across the street takes you to the little shops and the marina walkway.

Somewhat Underwhelmed

Great location on the Nanaimo waterfront and in the heart of the downtown. The rooms are modern, lovely and clean but in contrast, the hallways are worn, tired and a little musty smelling and the elevator doors are dirty. The staff is friendly and helpful. Having said that, there are a few things that should be addressed. For example, I feel that for the price of the rooms at $200/+ tax/night, the continental breakfast should be included as a courtesy. A $12 charge for croissants and cereal is a little steep. Another annoyance was the lack of a newspaper. We asked for a Globe & Mail but were told that they could provide us with an “App” but they haven’t had papers in over 2 years (??) Parking is an extra $10 charge, which seems to be fairly common now with hotels, BUT if the same 24 hr ticket is purchased at the machine downstairs in the parkade it is only $9 (??) So, I think that overall it is a good hotel but cutting silly corners like the above leaves a slightly sour taste.
