We found this place by chance in 2015 and the views were so beautiful that in planning our 2016 summer vacation the hotel was the main motivating factor in going there again. The staff is great at what they do and it shows that they all take pride in their work. They went above and beyond to accommodate us after... More

the hotel was a nice place to stay, staff were friendly and had good knowledge about the area. You are able to park your car there. It is in a good location and there are many restaurants nearby to choose from. It is a nice town and a trip to Newcastle Island is a good thing to do.

Excellent hotel to stay and near the water front was nice. The staff working were very polite and eager to help with direction. The rooms were clean and very comfortable and the lady at the desk because I was ex military up graded my room so we had a room overlooking the ocean thanks

Stayed at the COAST BASTION for a week, July 31-Aug 7. We were treated like royalty upon arrival by the staff. We arrived at 10 am and asked if we could possibly get an early check in. They said they would look into it and within an hour we had the room ! Stayed in a Premium King Harbour View... More

while attending a Regional Swim Meet final, this was a very convenient place to stay. It was for pleasure, but also to attend a sporting event. The hotel is in the heart of Nanaimo, close to the Port Theatre and lots of food establishments. It is also quite close to Departure Bay ferry terminal. .Parking for the hotel is convenient....

My husband and I spent 2 nights at this hotel and had a really enjoyable time. Our room was large with stunning views of the harbour and beyond. The king bed was extremely comfortable and I was thrilled to find an actual bathmat in the bathroom. As someone with some mobility issues, this was greatly appreciated. The staff that we... More

I was there on business for a week and I have all ready booked my next work accommodation there. Wonderful friendly accommodation staff !! All rooms have views. Would have loved to have a pool and a hot tub on location.

Checked in because it seemed to be the only game in town. Got in late and room service is all done at 10:00pm so went to bed hungry. Breakfast came on time and with a fixed delivery charge, so should I tip? I hate that. $375 for a corner room, When I called in at 3:00pm I was told that... More

The room is updated, large, and bright. The bed, pillows, blankets are very comfortable. The windows are large with harbour views on both sides. Worth paying the premium for. The Fitness centre in the hotel is dated and a bit depressing, like most hotels.... The front desk staff is a bit of a mixed bag: some friendly and some not.
