we are just back from a four night visit to this inn. it is located near the village of Ganges, a few minute walk...close to many of the local restaurants, the shops and the Saturday market...not to be missed. We rented a two storey unit as we had a few kids in and out during the weekend and there was... More

We have boated to Ganges Harbor on Salt Spring Island for years. On many of the those trips, we have walked through the lovely grounds of the Hastings House Hotel. From the outside, one would think they were in the Cotswalds in England. We had never eaten in the main dining room because we have some dietary restrictions and they... More

This was our first experience at Hastings House and hopefully not our last. My wife and I along with my brother and sister in law spent two nights at the property. We were all there celebrating our major wedding anniversaries. From the moment we got out of our car we were greeted by a warm and helpful staff. Staff attentiveness... More

This is a very interesting place. It was designed to resemble an 11th century Sussex style home. The main house is pretty true to form and looks like a country house. The property is fairly spread out with cottages of 2-4 room units. The food was good but it was the views and the spa that really won us over.... More

A two day stay with my family was just okay. Disappointing for a Relais & Chateaux property. On the plus side beautiful grounds, English gardens, quiet, simple, farm-feel and relaxing. On the minus rooms have not been upgraded (carpets dirty, drains didn't work well), dark inside, services and amenities very basic, and totally overpriced. Staff are very helpful and responsive...

We were a bit apprehensive returning this year after an "iffy" visit last year. Back in Farmhouse East which is one of their pricier rooms but has the most idyllic outlook and views of the whole property. Firstly, the service is excellent. There is a real proactive "Can Do" attitude from EVERY member of staff which is kinda rare these... More

My husband and I really enjoyed our stay at the Hastings House. We stayed in the Farm House West room which was a beautifully appointed and comfortable two floor room. It was a bit expensive despite the stay four pay for three deal. Not sure it was worth the price we paid, but the room did have terrific views of... More

It is a bit of a challenge to get to especially when your wife has significant heels on due to the gravel parking area and the steps down. At the end of dinner I thought I could bring the car around to pick her up but the gate was closed so although we avoided the stairs when leaving there was... More

We had two dinners here this summer (it's a regular stop for us on our summer sailing cruise): one in the newish bistro side and one in the fine dining room. Both were excellent meals with attentive and knowledgeable staff. Beautiful setting with the postcard perfect view of Ganges harbor.

Room was old style but clean with new bathroom, king size bed was comfortable, view was lovely although not worth $469 for one night $250 would have been more appropriate. Food although excellent was again pricey.
