I stayed on business for 3 nights in November and would say that the Bastion was pretty good on all fronts. The room was clean and comfortable although not special in any fashion. The bed was very comfortable and the bathroom was spotless. There was a pretty wild late night gathering of young persons that kept me awake one night but that can happen anywhere so not a reflection on the hotel. The location was very good and I was able to walk to a number of restaurants and pubs with ease. The gym was small but functional and you could accomplish everything you would need to. They rate this facility as 4 star but I would be more inclined to say 3.5. I ate at the restaurant one night and enjoed the ambience, the food and the staff. I did walk to"Old Town" and had a Greek meal at Asteras which was quite possible the finest restaurant meal I have had. Highly recommend this short walk up the hill to find it.
All in all a reasonable place to stay and I would stay again as the rest of Nanaimo has slim pickings.
