Beautiful, tranquil setting with gardens to make an Englishman proud. Excellent service from everyone--vigilant but unobtrusive. Restaurant is one of the finest in the northern hemisphere. Can't imagine a nicer place to unwind and re-generate. We followed this with one night at the Empress in Victoria (terrible), and found the Empress more expensive than Hastings House.

This is an unbelievably pretty, quaint and service oriented place. The gardens, waterview and buildings were beautiful. The accomodations are very expensive, roomy and clean. But for the price they charge they should be updated. We had dinner there and it was excellent. We will go again, but we will stay just one night and have dinner there or stay... More

This is one of the most tranquil and beautiful properties my husband and I have stayed at. There is so much beauty in the gardenes and the view of the harbor. We took so many pictures.

From the moment you step onto this property, enchantment reigns. The gardens are spectacular - from the manicured lawns, to the flowering beds and the vegetable garden that produces the local herbs and vegetables that are served in the dining room. The restaurant is equally impressive. From the moment you enter, the excellent service and friendliness are evident. Start with... More

We stayed here 3 nights and it was an amazing experience. We stayed in the Post Cottage and I would highly recommend it; very private, cozy and comfortable. Make no mistake, the price is up there, but well worth it for a special occasion. The staff is excellent and helpful at every turn. There is a wonderful collection of sculpture... More

I use the WellSpring Spa at the Hastings House on Salt Spring Island where spa technician Terra Dimock gives the best facials I have ever had. They use high end quality products that revitalizes my skin and makes it noticeably more moisturized and firm. I feel relaxed and at peace when I visit the beautiful property.

This lovely small hotel infuses its guests with an old world genteel feeling. The grounds and surrounding hiking paths are wonderfully beautiful. We stayed in the Post Cottage and would highly recommend it -might seem pricey but it was worth it. We were in a world by ourselves with indescribable scenery. It was fabulous.

I totally agree with the reviews here. This place is a true gem! A lot of the credit goes to Kelly, the manager, for making everything such a personal experience. Loved the fresh baked muffins delivered to our door each morning. Dinners there are expensive but truly a worthy experience. Fresh flowers and fresh veggies at every turn! Wonderful gardens!

Hastings House comes with an awesome reputation, and in most cases it lives up to what is said about it. It is a small hotel, and in that way very intimate....maybe a little too intimate for some.

We just returned from our first visit to Salt Spring Island and this hotel. It is a small property on the water just outside the town of Ganges.
