We were there for a convention. The hotel and service was great. Comfortable beds, room and bathroom clean. The restaurant is big, has a bar. The food is great. We had the buffet dinner and we also got a percentage off of our bill for staying there. The waiters were friendly and efficient.
One of Vancouver Island's Best
I spend over 50 nights a year away from home for business. The Coast Bastion is consistently in the top two. I find it to be a restful oasis in the midst of the craziness of life. I highly recommend the Coast Bastion.
Ticks all the boxes, but...
Very well located in downtown Nanaimo right on the harbour. The harbour view is worth the upgrade. Clean and spacious room. But I didn’t feel at home. Took me a while to understand why: the hotel in general and the room decor in particular is dated / old fashioned. IMHO of course. If not for that it would have been a 4 star rating.
Weekend trip for a dance competition
Excellent location in downtown Nanaimo with various dining choices within walking distance. Had a comfortable and well appointed room with a partial ocean view. Room service was very prompt and on time. Food delivered was hot and very tasty. Only thing was that the two hotel elevators were fairly small and quite slow, especially as the hotel was full.
Comfortable lovely hotel
Great hotel, great location,you can walk to everywhere. Don’t need a car, but there is ample parking if you do.. the rooms are bright and very comfortable beds. The restaurant was very good, good atmosphere and wonderful food.
