I was in Nanaimo for 4 days/nights and because of the stay at the Coast Bastion Hotel i will be returning in anticipation to stay there again. I can not say enough good things about the hotel in regards to friendliness, service, quality and comfort!

we arrived at 10 am very early and they allowed us to check in - which was great. The room had a great view. We asked where we could watch the football (Euros 2016 England vs Iceland) & and the concierge rang through and said that they would have it on in the restaurant / bar. Lunch menu was very...

Spent two nights at the hotel. Great staff, nice rooms and pet friendly. The beds were very comfortable and the bathroom was nice too. Harbour view was a nice touch. I will stay here in Nanaimo again.

I stayed one night this weekend and thoroughly enjoyed my stay. I had a corner room on the 7th floor (highly recommended) and the panoramic views of the waterfront were incredible. The room was very open and bright, and most important, very clean. I needed one more wine glass brought to the room, and the front desk had one sent...

Thank you for mentioning the 7th floor, you don't have to be on the 15th floor to get the best views, they are just as good on the 7th floor. Look forward in having you stay with us again in the future.

Excellent hotel , clean and nice rooms overlooking harbor. Perfect for a 1 -2 day stop over in Nanaimo. Parking with hotel and easy walk to restaurants and shops as well as the harbor walk. Overall best pick for Nanaimo - 10 min from ferry!

You are right about the ferry, we are only 10 minutes away, and so close to everything else in Nanaimo! Thank you for rating us on TripAdvisor!

From attentive and authentic hotel staff to a genuinely excellent restaurant, the Coast Bastion had it all. Parking was fast and easy to find underground. The hotel is located downtown and along the waterfront amongst the heart of the city's vibrant core. The room was modern, comfy, clean and bright. Conference centre was literally a stone's throw away. Fantastic!

The stay was for business and it provide all the peace and quiet neede for my nights. The staff was friendly and engaging. When parking go directly to P2 as you will find out it's less crowded and it the level you exit the parade from.

The room was nicely renovated with a modern style and is in a great location for shops and the harbor. Only issue i had with the room was that it didn't seem properly cleaned since i found the last guests hair in the shower and on the floor around the shower. Otherwise great hotel, would recommend.

I was at convention in Nanaimo recently and really enjoyed my room. It was obvious that they had recently upgraded, and they should definitely receive a return on their investment. Nicely done!! Very bright and clean!!.

Excellent room - perfect for a couple - bed was so comfortable and dinner in the restaurant was delicious - but the bonus was the great view of the harbour - the experience definitely exceeded our expectations
