Coast Bastion Hotel

Nanaimo, Vancouver Island

The hotel

Kicking-off point for strolls along the seawall, days out in downtown Nanaimo, and jaunts to scenic shoreline spots from nearby Nanaimo Harbour, Coast Bastion Hotel is comfortably close to all the action. Its location by the harbour doesn’t just give you mesmerising ocean views, it also makes experiencing the ocean’s attractions effortless — whether you fancy swimming in Mallard Lake on Newcastle Island, sailing north to the waterfront parks of Piper’s Lagoon or Neck Point, or simply toasting your stay at Canada’s only registered floating pub, over on Protection Island. When you’re ready to rest, Coast Bastion Hotel welcomes you home with creature comforts like complimentary WiFi access, indulgences like the spa’s oxygen therapy, and a taste of British Columbia at Minnoz Restaurant & Lounge, where the menu often features West Coast favourites like wild BC salmon and Granville Island Honey Lager.

I stayed one night and I enjoyed it. The checkin was friendly, the room was excellent, a nice view, the bed and linens were excellent and I slept very well indeed. The bathroom was also very good, everything was neat and clean. Thank you

This is a quality place to stay that is in a location where it is easy to walk to many of the interesting parts of the city. Beautiful walkway around the water front across the street. Lots of variety in restaurants and book stores within a few blocks.
