We are retirees from Ontario visiting our daughters family in Vancouver. She arranged this little get away for us and it was amazing! The hotel is in the centre of the picturesque town of Ganges. Jeremy and the staff were very friendly and helpful. The room was comfortable , clean and charming with a water view. The breakfast was so... More

I loved this quaint Inn with doors you had to lock when you leave, the old fashioned way. They provide you with a key to the Inn's front door if you come back after 11PM. The rooms were great. Early risers were awakened to the hustle and bustle of traffic outside. There was a nice cafe in the Inn with... More

Wonderful staff, great food, nice room with charm, and walking distance to everything in Ganges. We came to see my granddaughters show at Artspring, then had a wonderful evening out, a lovely time thank-you.

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
