A quaint hotel with lots of amenities and a good breakfast. Location is good, lots of parking, and a good history.

One of our friends told us that there was a "happy hour" on the patio at Hastings House. So we expected it, and were very disappointed with the prices (high) and lack of expected savings. The patio is beautiful, great views of Ganges Harbour. The wine selection was limited "in our price range", and though the patio appy food was... More

The grounds are a charming step back in time... the restaurant is high end, with exquisitely prepared food. Our last two experiences have been disappointing in some respects: both times the food took way too long to arrive at the table. It was very good when it did arrive, but the quality did not match the price. The service was... More

Ganges always a nice spot to stop while visiting the Canadian Gulf islands and dinner at the Hastings House will make it a memorable one! Two settings per night. Very intimate and excellent service from personalized menus through dessert. Food allergies are taken in stride without drama. Picturesque setting and wonderful for romantic couple's night out.

Went here with my out of town/off island family. I had the 3 course special and the other three had prawns and lamb meatloaf. The service was excellent! Gave us extra time with our cocktails so we could visit. Food was top notch - definitely making this a 'go-to' for visitors.

Hastings House has opened a bistro as part of their dinner options and it was very good. About half the price of the restaurant so well worth it. We sat right at the window looking out at the harbour. Food was very good, and the wine list was short but well curated.

We haven't stayed here, but have dined here. It is one of the best dining experiences we've had...and we've eaten in a lot of places around the world. Intimate, cottage atmosphere over looking Ganges Harbour. Serene.

The name is actually Hastings House, not Hasting. It is a charming inn and restaurant, beautifully landscaped and overlooking a picturesque harbor. Three of us were served a delicious dinner in the small bistro (the dining room is more expensive and less intimate), where the fire in the stone fireplace, dark wood beams, and a few tables thoughtfully placed made...
