We had never actually stopped in the Gulf Islands before and were not quite sure what to expect. Our experience was very positive. We had half a small house, upstairs and downstairs and had no problem with space. The whole facility looked as if it had been built in the 1920s or 1930s -- the usual west coast stucco facing....

I was in one of the Hillside suites for three days. They are very spacious, well designed and nicely furnished. The balconies with their views over Ganges harbour are another plus, although you do have to be prepared to put up with some mosquitoes in the evening. Breakfast was excellent. There is a different breakfast special every day, and each... More

Enjoyed our stay at this property. The grounds were well maintained and lush. Units are spread out throughout the grounds, allowing for some privacy. Surprisingly, we could hear traffic noise from the street while in our room. Food was very good and service was even better. Our room decor seemed dated; the flooring, bedding, furniture, and draperies felt drab. Great... More

My husband and I celebrating our 20th wedding anniversary with a visit to Hastings House on Salt Spring Island. It was worth every penny and I only hope we can return one day to this wonderful hotel. It was like visiting Europe while never leaving Canada. The staff were friendly, knowledgeable, kind and interesting to talk to. The food (breakfast,... More

A lovely and unique hotel. Rooms are spacious and the breakfast is excellent. Excellent grounds and ocean front. We played croquet on the lawn. Natural lawn so do not expect a putting green surface. Easy walk to town and to nearby restaurants.

The hotel overlooks Ganges Harbour on Salt Spring Island (the largest of the Canadian Gulf Islands a continuation of the American San Juans) . The hotel has rooms in the Manor House (convenient for dining if it rains), in nicely converted farm buildings and more recently built "Chalets" (overlooking Ganges harbor)'\. Room prices are not inexpensive and include a "resort... More

If you are traveling with kids this place is not ideal (definitely geared toward couples!) but if you don’t want to sacrifice your standards regarding accommodations -- it is really your only option in Ganges. General Points: +Your stay is organized based upon your unique needs, so just ask, they probably can accommodate -- for example we were arriving late... More

From start to finish an amazing experience at Hastings House! We booked the Essex suite which had a beautiful view overlooking the harbour, and also a view of the meadow on the opposite side of the property. The best of both worlds! The grounds and flowers are lovely, you actually feel like you're in England. Short 10 min. walk into... More
