The simplicity of crisp clean white cotton, ocean breeze and freshly picked fruits and vegetables. Who needs the city amenities? Fabulous staff, kind and constant from year to year. Love the restaurant. For the rest, no car needed. Take the BC ferries which are met by BC transit unless one arrives late then call Silver Shadow taxi. Easy stroll across... More

This was my second stay at the Harbour House, the last time being about 4 years ago. The location and price influenced our decision to return, but sadly, the furnishings and fixtures had not changed since our last stay. The pros: - Great location, within walking distance to Ganges, overlooking the harbour. - Wonderful organic farm, open for public viewing... More

Very well maintained clean hotel with friendly staff. A bit overpriced - I've stayed in hotels half the price with triple ammenties. Biggest concern was a lack of air conditioning on a 30 degree celicius August day--- I don't think I've stayed in a hotel room with no A/C in the summer before... Was really neat to have a restaruant... More

Stayed for 2 nights and had a great time. The room itself was nothing special but was clean. The greatest thing about this hotel was how they grow their food onsite and the breakfast was great (big portions, so you do get your money's worth). Are able to tour their gardens, which was really neat. The location is also really... More

I recently brought a group of 12 to the Harbour House for six nights. Everything was perfect: from the location with wonderful views of the harbor, a professional and accommodating staff always available for our every need, delicious restaurant with organic food from the farm and live music, lovely rooms with views and the on site organic farm with its...

Booked the Harbour House for the Cameron/Lundy Wedding. Had a Seaview room and it was fantastic including the massive Jacuzzi in the room. Folks were friendly well informed, food was magnificent and service impressive. RECOMMENDED!

Spent a couple nights here while we toured Salt Spring Island for the first time. Absolutely beautiful Island. This hotel's location is ideal as it is very close to town (20 min walk) and to the ferry. Firstly, I don't think I've had a better meal than what was served at their restaurant. Fresh from the farm to my plate.... More

My girlfriend and I stayed at Harbour House for a wedding, which the entire place was booked solid for. It was a really cool vibe to have the Hotel and the Restaurant buzzing with people on Salt Spring for the same celebration. I found the location perfect ... a close walk to coffee, restaurants, the Saturday market and other shops.... More

Great place to stay. Wife and I took deluxe suite on two separate occasions and both times were enjoyable. Salt spring Island is a nice place to go "get away from it all". Both times we have stayed the rooms were clean and tidy (with small exceptions, see below). The restaurant served good food, and everyone was courteous and pleasant... More

We stayed at Harbour House for a wedding and were so impressed. The view was fabulous, but also the food. Everything sourced from their own garden or locally. The chef at Harbour House is very creative in flavour matching and presentation. The staff are really pleasant, and the location is perfect, we did not need a car, walking distance to... More
