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....

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...

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...

We recently stayed at the Harbour House prior to a medical appointment at the Lady Minto Hospital. The rooms are modest, and quiet, and ours faced east, so it didn't get the hot late afternoon sun. Also had a large balcony if we wanted to sit outside. The restaurant was excellent, I had gnocchi in wild mushroom sauce, perfect size...

I stayed in two of the 2nd floor budget rooms overlooking a flat roof of their building. The beds were comfortable, and room was clean. While the outdated decor (think very old tv) didn't bother me, one room had a dirty screen on the one small window, and the second room had no screen. The small fan provided did not...

We visited Salt Spring Island for a wedding this past weekend. Being from Toronto, I'm always blwon-away by the beauty of west coast. Salt Spring Island is no excpetion to this.

We arrived in sweltering heat to no one on the front desk just a note saying "be back in five minutes": We were hot and tired after ridingb a motor bike and decided to stroll around the neighbourhood.

Harbour House is a most excellent place to stay, let me count the ways! Location close to Ganges, hotel room with balcony overlooking the ocean, huge organic garden wonderful setting to walk through, and the food is one of the best! Saturday night after a long hike enjoyed cowichan organic chicken and creme bruelle which was divine!
