Saltspring Inn; Fabulously clean and ideally located in the village of Ganges on Saltspring Island, British Columbia. The owner Jeremy Milsom under the supervision of his cat Rita has taken a once derelict historical building and rebirthed it into the Saltspring Inn. All new from top to bottom Jeremy has managed to preserve the old world late 19th - early... More

A budget friendly hotel in the middle of everything! This is a small 7 unit hotel in a heritage home. The front desk employee was very pleasant, the room, while tiny, was very clean and comfy. We chose a room with shared bath to save money and were quite pleased. Our view was towards the back of the hotel so... More

I booked for 3 nights but finished my project early. Refunding my extra night was a breeze. The owner and staff are warm, welcoming and friendly. Clean, well maintained, basic room. The Inn is charming and the staff play a large part in that impression for me. This was my second stay there.

From Rita, the welcoming kitty, to the AMAZING FOOD, our whole experience was great. We thought not having a private washroom in our room would be weird, but I think we might have been the only guests staying in a room without its own bathroom as the shower room down the hall was impeccably clean! There is one of those... More

Stayed two nights, mid week. I've given five stars as the Inn and my room were exactly as advertised and met my needs…...no disappointments. Had a back room, which was quiet and the bed was comfortable. Both the room and shared bathroom/shower were very clean. Friendly and helpful staff. Ate both of my evening meals in the restaurant, service and... More

Very welcoming place to stay in the heart of Ganges. Excellent restaurant downstairs. Packed on a Monday night! But didn't wait too long for food, long enough that it was made fresh. We were pleasantly surprised that for that value, the room was very comfortable. Because it is so cost effective were were expecting less. Albeit the bathroom shower is... More

Thank you Andrea for passing on your review; very valuable. As our 75 year heritage location is in the heart of Ganges we are certainly subject to some traffic noise, mainly in Summer. We are planning an additional layer of windows soon and hope that it will lessen the inpact of traffic passing by. We do hope that you will... More

Salt Spring Island and specifically the Salt Spring Inn were the highlights of our B.C. trip. If you are visiting Vancouver or Victoria do not miss a side trip to Salt Spring, even if just for a day or two. The ferry ride alone through the Gulf Islands is a great tourist attraction. We cannot imagine staying in a nicer... More

We were in Ganges for an evening event of the always excellent Salt Spring Forum. So, our accommodation needs were simple: clean, quiet, comfortable and affordable. Salt Spring Inn offered that and more, including friendly service, help with luggage, included internet service and a handy single-serve coffee brewer available anytime. Even the request for a late night glass of milk... More

Just came back from a two night stay. The staff was very friendly and welcoming. Restaurant down stairs had great food. The Inn just has a very warming comfortable feeling about it, and a lot of character. Loved it so much we've decided to return back in spring. Thanks! From Martin and Robyn
