Great choices on the menu for everyone. Service was excellent. Breakfasts and dinner were wonderful as was the afternoon tea presented by the fireplace. Beautiful setting overlooking the harbour

“The best accommodation on the Island”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 4, 2014

I love every thing about this charming Chateaux and the extensive grounds, sculpture garden, amazing vista over looking Ganges Harbour, world class spa and restaurant and yet unpretentious at the same time in terms of mood, i just love this place!

“An escape treasure”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 20, 2013

English architecture, authentic country inn, service was exceptional, dream wedding location with outside and inside entertaining areas with loads of character, top kitchen, service to tell your friends about, exceptional location on Ganges Harbour with wither walk to or pick up from the Ganges Harbour Float Plane dock. Only 20 minutes from Vancouver Airport Harbour Air Dock. A must for anyone wanting to be pampered.

“Disappointing evening”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 24, 2013

The food was excellent but my phoned reservation (made 6 months earlier) mentioned a food problem that was completely ignored and was not dealt with. There is no flexibility in the menu -- be warned prix fixeé and no substitutions!

“Needs Updated Reviews”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 21, 2013

Too often a 5-star can coast until the travel books are updated--as has this place. Imagine a $100 a setting meal where the waiter serves over you, gives the wrong bill, says he has to leave early and where the very very ordinary wines are incredibly overpriced. Not to mention the desserts! The ice cream had clots of ice, the chocolate dessert was a hardened brownie, and the bathroom overflowed with crumpled tissues. Nor was there anything to dry hands on. My bill was 135.00. This is outrageous. The salmon was tasty but not worth this much money.
