A recently updated hotel in the heart of downtown Nanaimo. They did a very nice job of the renovations. The staff were extremely friendly and helpful. The fixtures are high end, the furniture is high quality and, best of all, the large flat screen TVs are full HD, unlike most hotels. Very comfortable.

This is s nice clean hotel right on the Harbour so you can't beat the location. Parking is only $8.50 a day which is very reasonable and the hotel is close to the Harbour walk and the ferry to Newcastle Island, where you can walk lovely trails for hours. It's also very close to some great restaurants. We walked to... More

I had the 'Healthy Choice' poached egg with yogurt and fruit. Not much to say about that except the egg was poached perfectly - i asked for soft. They are often over-cooked but this one was just right. There was a good variety of fruit and it was very fresh. Our server was great -very friendly and could carry on... More

This nicely decorated restaurant is in the 4 star category with linen table cloths, male servers and excellent attentive service. The menu prices are typical for this type of restaurant. The menu offerings are typical and lack creativity but the food quality was good. They also offer a variety of gluten free items. Overall this restaurant provides good value for... More

Our server went out of her way to make sure our celebration of my parents 50th anniversary was special. The food was great and had a nice variety for every taste and requirement. The person that took my reservation was very helpful when I let her know we were planning on going to the theatre after dinner and even suggested... More

Excellent quality and service. I guess they have to be all that and a bag of chips, since they are central to many other exciting options in town.

The Coast Bastion hotel restaurant has gone through some changes and all for the better. Their Crab Cakes are delicious and a very generous portion. Everything was fresh, tasty and service was excellent. I have always liked this hotel and happy to see that over the years, it has just got better.
