The grounds are nicely manicured, the room was clean and thoughtfully decorated, the bed was comfortable, the dining staff were attentive... BUT the hillside suite was very noisy on Friday and Saturday nights during this summer weekend. The advertised "wellness and relaxation" didn't apply in the evenings. A bar is located within a stone throw of our Heather suite and... More

We had our wedding rehearsal dinner in The Verandah (hastingshouse.com/dining/the-verandah/) at Hastings House on June 14, 2013, and it was absolutely perfect. We are finally getting up our reviews after our first anniversary. :) Hastings House communicated professionally with my mother-in-law throughout the planning process, and were a delight to work with. They made up a menu specifically for our... More

I highly recommend a stay at Hastings House. Although the rooms may not be 5-star, the setting, service and experience certainly are. The restaurant has excellent food and an impressive wine list. We visited in July, at the beginning of their summer. Kayaking on pristine water, afternoon tea, long walks, visits to artisan farms. Altogether, it was an idyllic setting--an... More

When decor is a little old and tired in a big-city hotel, it can be off-putting, but at Hastings House, it somehow feels just right in its authenticity. We stayed in the Farmhouse and found the setting idyllic and very, very charming. Loved sleeping with windows open and thin drapes billowing in the breeze. Adult children stayed in other rooms...

What a beautiful spot on a lovely Gulf Island (Salt Spring). Magnificent and tremendously well tended grounds - here at the height of lilacs and spring bulbs. Staff very nice - although surprising that almost none knew anything of hiking trails on the island. Restaurant quiet, excellent if traditional food. Hard to beat for a quiet relaxing spot.

Thank you for your review. We have recently hired a number of new team members for the summer season who are becoming acquainted with the island. We are enjoying exploring the island as tourists in our own town! Rest assured we will soon know be as knowledgeable as we should be about the trails and other attractions on the island.... More

We had a lovely three days at Hastings House. The staff were unfailingly pleasant and helpful, the food was delicious, and the grounds are charming and beautiful. We were very happy staying in the Sealoft; it's bright yet cozy, the bed was comfortable and the chairs lovely for curling up and reading. We loved the location, too - a short... More

Hastings House is the most exquisite estate I have had the privilege to visit and stay at. I had my recent wedding here and the staff took care of every detail!

What a beautiful place set on 22 acres which was bursting with spring colour. Various lodging options throughout the grounds but we were in Manor West in the main house. Has two bedrooms so great for friends travelling together. A fire in the room which we eventually go to light on our third night (wood was probably a bit green).... More
