A person, couple or group seeking quality accommodation with quality amenities need look no further than Coast Nanaimo Bastion Hotel. Within easy walking distance of shops, restaurants, seafront walk and the coming/goings of a daytime harbour this is the location to accomodate.

Great hotel within minutes of shopping, casino and restaurants. Staff at the desk were helpul, mentioned to try a greek food place in the old quarter, wow, it was great!! Staff in the restaurant (Minnozz ? ) were not great though, we had to ask for everything including cutlery, napkins and more coffee. NO, it wasn't busy either....

Thank you for taking the time to rate us on Trip Advisor, I am not sure what happened in the restaurant, so could you email me the date and time you visited the restaurant so I can look into it, my email is h.traa@coasthotels.com

A clean hotel that used to be very good. Inconsistent room temperature and poor air quality, and a declining kitchen have turned it into a very average property. I'd probably stay elsewhere if there was a better hotel in Nanaimo.

Treated well by the reception staff and check-in/out went smoothly. The room was a good size and comfortable. The view from the room was a nice surprise. The lounge was relaxing after a long day. The parking was a short block away, but not a big deal.

Very nice place to stay. Staff was very helpful and the restaurant staff and meals were great also. View of the waterfront was very nice and had walking trails for after supper very close. Would highly recommend staying here.

Nice, clean and friendly hotel across the street from the waterfront in Nanaimo. The staff are well versed in good customer service and make you feel welcome and appreciated. The rooms are clean and I appreciated the large multi-use bottles of soap, shampoo, conditioner and lotion - no waste here.

Looking dated, and the restaurant is truly awful. Not really worth it if you can find something better. Don't even bother with the overpriced and terrible restaurant. Probably one of the worst I have been to.

If you are more than two people to a room and are not skinny or are at all restless do not stay here. I found the restaraunt high priced. Room had only Starbucks coffee so we used our own. Do NOT like Starbucks flavour. We support Canada with Timmys.

This is primarily a business person's hotel, but was a welcome oasis for us. Extra clean and spacious rooms with a great view of the strait and the town. And Keeley at the front desk gave us great ideas for our onward trip to Ucluelet. Thanks!
