    We chose the Coast Bastion Hotel in downtown Nanaimo for it's close proximity to the waterfront. The Malaspina Room on the 2nd floor was bright and open with large windows (which for a winter wedding was beneficial) and a beautiful private patio. Our wedding day on Feb. 12/17 was fortunately bright and sunny and our photos on the patio turned out wonderfully. Skye Dominick and her whole team of professionals made our day truly worry free and they were able to accommodate last minute changes on the fly the day before. We were married and had our reception in the same great space and utilized 3 of the other rooms adjacent at the same time. There were 50 people invited to the service and luncheon that followed. The food was outstanding and our guests were very complimentary on it. Another 35 guests arrived for an evening reception and the hors d'oeuvres served were first class. The whole day was seamless and we would not hesitate to recommend this venue to anyone.

    We had our wedding at the Coast Bastion at the end of May 2016 and it was wonderful! Dave and the catering team at the Coast were wonderful to work with, both in the planning stages, as well as on the actual day. They were so accommodating and all of our guests commented on how great the staff was!

    And the food! Oh my gosh, the food was amazing! My husband's family is Indian and so we had made a request to have traditional Indian dishes on our menu. Chef and Ranjit put together an amazing Butter Chicken, Pakora, chutneys, naan and rice to add to our buffet and it was a huuuuuuuge hit! Even my very traditional in-laws were impressed!

    I would certainly recommend the Coast Bastion as a great place to host an event, and they will make you feel so special on your special day!
