"The only thing we were disappointed with was that there was no pool. The hot tub was small, and our opinion was that is would only comfortably fit 2 adults and maybe 1 child at the same time. This hotel had a view of the harbour from every room. One could stretch out in bed and actually see the ocean. Nice."

"I reserved in advance and received a confirmation number. We were coming from Victoria, B.C. Even phoned two days ahead for a "late arrival". When checking in the booking was in the name of 'Sean Robertson' from Seattle. Definitely not me. Produced confirmation and they said error would be corrected. I was asked to just sign the checking in slip even although I was showing as Sean Robertson.When I checked out I was still showing as Sean Robertson from Seattle. Service otherwise was adequate."

"I felt the hotel's advertizing was missleading. They mentioned a balcony, but there was room for only one person standing on it and the railing was dangerousoly low. The hotel advertized thier resteruant and lounge and 24 hour room service but the resturaunt hours were cut way back. (closed at 9:00 pm) and the lounge was simply closed until the new year. The hotel staff suggested a cafe down the street which was badly over priced and under served. Access to the hotel is curtailed by huge construction projects in the area but the room cost still reflects all ammenities. On the good side, because of holiday travel issues, the hotel refunded me a day when i could not get their in time and other than the night manager, the staff seemed to promote our comfort and happiness. the night Manager was simply matter of fact and a bit condecending. The room was well kept but showed signes of aging in the bathroom and the recycle poster suggesting we re-use our towels seemed a bit tacky. Over all, I have had far better hotel experiences that charged less but this hotel was not un-livable."

"I thought that it was a pleasant hotel although it does need some modernisation. Also the balconys are tiny which I didn't think was great.The staff were helpful and friendly."

"average place, average hotel. The "ocean view balconies" advertising a bit decietful. The balcony is barely enough room for two people to stand on, and has partial views of the harbour. NOT authentic ocean views. It should read "salt-water views""

"I was very happy with the Coast Bastion. The rooms are clean, the beds very comfortable and the view is excellent. The staff went the extra mile allowing me to remain in the hotel until 2:30 in the afternoon even though check out time is 12:00. I had cataract surgery in the early morning and had to return to the opthamologist's office at 3:30. It meant a lot to me and to have a cozy room in which to rest while I waited. Both my designated driver friend and I were most appreciative. Louise"

"Due to weather conditions (snow), we were not able to keep our reservation. I would like to say however, that when we had to cancel, the hotel was extremely understanding and made the whole experience quite pleasant. I wouldn't hesitate to book with them in the future."
