Have not had food from here, but bought some coffee beans that said Peru, made the best cup of coffee at home. Local hub, hangout from my observations. Friendly people, always busy but of course there are not too too many places on Denman. Love Denman Island, the island itself is beautiful and offers many different beaches, parks, trails, lakes....

the menu is very interesting here, lots of little secrets, breakfast ALL DAY! they have good burgers and wraps, a little pricey but for a large quality meal its the right value. they do sometimes use a lot of garlic, a little too much for me but I'm sure just right for you.

Came to Denman with a friend to enjoy the beautiful scenery and escape the snowpocalypse of Northern Alberta for a little while. We couldn't have been happier at the Denman Guesthouse! We had the whole place to ourselves with a quaint private room and a cozy porch to relax on in the evenings. I'd definitely recommend it!

It's just a few steps to the right - the 1905 Denman farm house was recycled into a hostel type guest house 40 years ago. It reminded me of the 1970's farm hostels all over New Zealand complete with hot sulphur smell in the shower. It is a eclectic mix of accommodation some ramshackle some not. A tour with a... More

I visited Sheldon and Donna briefly for one night in September of 2012. I absolutely fell in love with the property, the house and the small restaurant that they run. The coffee is all freshly roasted on site, the food is all "from scratch" made by Donna (exquisite deserts and super healthy fare). The Bistro features vintage pieces making up... More

Like others have said - what you get out of it depends on who you are. I'll mention the 'bad' bits now so that I can type uninterrupted of how great it was later. The water is heated by brimstone so it smells like sulpher. The whole house is very rustic and earthy (dusty, spidery and old). The rooms are... More

Like many small towns (or islands), Denman is no different. Awesome food, eclectic and lovely people and a safe warm feeling. That's exactly what I experienced staying here. I stayed mid week and ended up having a room to myself. The bed was good, lots of blankets for a chilly winter night. This is really an upscale hostel type of... More

Traveled with husband and infant. Definitely met our basic needs for a night on Denman (and good for the pocketbook) but leaves a lot to be desired with respect to details. Our room could have really used a screen to keep out the wasps. And traveling with a baby we sure would have appreciated window coverings that blocked a bit... More

This is a good place to stay if you are watching your pennies and don't mind doing without some luxuries. The old farmhouse is funky and full of antiques and the atmosphere is very laid back. The rooms are very minimal and a little lacking in comfort and privacy but if you don't mind sharing a bathroom this might be... More
