Good but unhappy with the slow response to my queries about having inadvertently left some items in the room by mistake. I am not blessed with typing a lot of words just to meet your 200 word policyfghjfighjfgghifgfghjigh. Bhhhjjjhfhjkhgh. Ghgh

Comfortable hotel in great location. Good exercise facilities but no pool, hot tub or sauna for those that enjoy them. Friendly staff but did not use the dinning facilities. Comfortable beds and large rooms but a bit on the pricey side, especially when paid parking ($9.00 per night) taken into consideration.

We used to stay at the Dorchester however the manager there was always off putting so we tried the Coast Bastion. What a pleasant surprise to find the nicely renovated rooms, very pleasant...

Rooms were clean and comfy! Staff was excellent and so was the food in the restaurant! We arrived and immediately got into our room that had an amazing view of the bay! Really close to the board walk!

We stayed for one night after arriving off the ferry from horseshoe bay. A beautiful and comfortable room. Very attentive staff and a great breakfast in the restaurant the next morning. Would love the stay here again.

Coast Bastion was great choice for conference at the University. Easy access, lots of restaurant and pub options near by. Service at hotel bar was excellent. Business centre was very convenient. Would recommend to anyone travelling to Nanaimo.

Second visit to the Coast Bastion for business. The first was excellent but this time I was given a third-floor room that was quite noisy. Woken by noise next door one night, and by noisy housekeeping staff around 6am both days. When travelling alone I always feel more secure on an upper floor, so the third-floor room wasn't ideal.
