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...

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. The elegance is worth...

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. The staff are all friendly and helpful, and go out of their way to help guests enjoy their stay. The hotel is quaint...

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. We were in the Somerset Hillside Suite and it was amazing. Very large, well appointed and beautiful views from the bedroom and the deck. The only issue was the noise from the...

We spend two nights at The Hastings House and were blown away by how beautiful the property is. It's really a special experience. We are not wealthy people, but it was worth every penny. There are several free standing cottages but we chose to stay in the old house, and because we added a second night we ended up staying...

We got married here in 2007 and it was absolute bliss. We had a luncheon and I still dream about the lemon cake the chef specially prepared. The service was excellent, we also had a dinner here which featured local produce. Our room was filled with fresh flowers from their garden. We received fresh muffins in the morning at our...

Pick anywhere - sitting in your room in a high back comfy chair, feet tucked up on the ottoman near the fire; reading on an Adirondack chair on the lawn with the scent of roses wafting over you; walking through the forest trails (easy to find and traverse); walking into the tiny town of Ganges, and going to the "made...

We recently stayed at Hastings House for a few days with the Romance Package; it included the stay, champagne, massage, meals, etc. which made for a very relaxing experience. We stayed in the Sussex, which is part of the Hillside Suites. As the photos show, Hastings House is a series of various buildings on beautiful grounds overlooking the harbour at...
