My wife and I were at the Hastings House for a 3 day weekend to celebrate our anniversary. They treated us extremely well, the service from everyone from the front desk to the restaurant to the maids was great. Lots of nice touches like turn-down service with a little treat each night. Inthe morning, before breakfast, a pot of coffee... More

We booked this venue for our daughter's wedding and were very pleased with the extra attention to detail we received. Manager Kelley booked a date & package that suited our needs for small wedding of 60 guests on the Hastings House grounds overlooking Ganges Harbour (a beautiful view and backdrop!). Kelley allowed to change their all-inclusive wedding package to suit... More

I hate to write about what a wonderful, relaxing time we had here, because I don't want it to change or be overrun. Just entering the property you experienced the peacefulness and serenity of the surroundiings, from the garden to the beautiful views it was amazing. Our room was lovely with a view of the harbour. Dinner was exceptional and... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our three nights stay at Hastings House. Our cottage was perfect with views of the harbour, cozy sitting area complete with a gas fireplace and wet bar. The robes and plush towels were appreciated. You do need to bring your own slippers. It is nice to return from dinner and have your bed turned down and room... More

We were amazed at the attention to detail in every aspect of our stay. From the six course chef dinner to the fresh flowers placed on the mantel in our room. The staff was warm and accomodating. The property itself is beyond words in its English Country beauty. I would stay again in a heart beat!

In a unique way, we were transported back to several earlier visits in rural England, staying at luxury wonderful country house hotels we found in the past. This hotel was lifted up and placed down in the perfect setting on the lovely island of Salt Spring, overlooking the harbour and set upon a former farming hillside. Having a bit of... More

We enjoyed this very charming English Manor with a it's peaceful, friendly, accommodating atmosphere. We found the food excellent. If you have never had Salt Spring Island lamb, you are in for a real gourmet treat..as a matter of fact. The melt in your mouth scones at tea time are accompanied by the best marmalade and jams I've ever tasted.... More

Superb hospitality from Kelly McAree and his team - flawless stay in luxury house hotel suite - in the unique setting overlooking the harbour. Warm log fires, afternoon tea, and wine on the patio in the evening....sheer bliss. Highly recommend for any occasion. Best Breakfast in years.

Stayed in a charming suite for three nights and enjoyed two fantastic dinners and breath taking breakfasts. Had a roaring fire each night with tons of dry burnable wood, perfect. ALL the staff were exceptional. Stunning setting with great food and perfect accomodation, we'll be back!

We had a mostly pleasant stay at the Hastings House. The setting is as good as it gets on Salt Spring Island, and the service was generally good. There is room for improvement, however. The 'pre-breakfast' hamper that they deliver was underwhelming in both concept and execution. I was expecting something like a continental breakfast - coffee/tea and baked goods.... More

Thank you for your review. Hastings House Country House Hotel is careful in its representation of the services you have mentioned for example the morning hamper is described as fresh baked muffins and either coffee or tea. The choice of recipes for our muffins is based on guest reactions to the various kinds of muffins we have prepared over the... More
