With an October chill in the air and occasional showers coming across the bay those afternoon teas served next to the roaring fireplace were a highlight of our stay on the island. Our hillside suite was well appointed with a good view of the harbour, but it did pick up a bit of road noise from down below. This was... More

This was our second visit to Hastings House over 20 years and both occassions to celebrate our wedding anniversary. The property alone is so incredibly tranquil but it's the old world charm of the resort that drew us in. Our room was well appointed, and in the morning a little basket of freshly baked muffins and coffee arrive at your... More

This was our second time here in three years. Life doesn't get much better then this. We stayed in the Hilltop suite Sussex and it was picturesque, cozy and had stunning harbour views with glorious morning sunrises to enjoy on our balcony. A few of the highlights were: freshly baked muffins dropped off at 7:30 am, espresso machine, gas fireplace,... More

We arrived from Vancouver via a floatplane with our five year old son to Salt Spring Island for the weekend. It was the most relaxing experiences we ever had. We often stay in five star properties such as the One and Only and Las Ventanas in Cabo and Hastings House rates high on our list of favorite places to stay.... More

The Hastings House is my new favorite retreat. From the moment you walk onto the property you get a sense that there is something very special about this place. To begin with, the staff are incredibly welcoming and accommodating. The manor house and the surrounding grounds are spectacular - you feel like you are living in your very own historic... More

we arrived at the hotel for three nights in a Hillside Suite, after spending three nights at the Wickaninnish Inn in Tofino. We paid $600 nightly all-in for each property but Hastings House is no match for the Wickaninnish Inn. Both hotels are Relais & Chateaux properties but they are in a different league. The room rate at Hastings House... More

Dear Walter, We appreciate your feedback about Hastings House. Hastings House offers several unique amenities that the Wickaninnish Inn does not offer, such as a complimentary morning hamper, a full English breakfast, and an afternoon tea for each of our guests. In addition, we make time to personalize the guest experience by printing individual menus for each guest, creating personalized... More

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

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
