Powell River, Canada
Reviewed 9 June 2016 via mobile

We were only here for a couple days. My husband had an all-day meeting so we wanted a central location. Must admit we hesitated booking here because of the shared bathrooms, but it was absolutely fine! Extremely clean and from an eco-point-of-view, this should be the way of the future. I loved the old-fashioned feel and being in the centre...

I chose Room # 1 and it was wonderful. The view of the harbour from my room was great! The staff were very friendly, the Inn is kept immaculate and the shared bathrooms were pristine and always accessible to me. I had lunch and also breakfast in their downstairs restaurant and the food & service were great. The central location...

I stayed in a room #5 over May long weekend and highly recommend the hotel. As another reviewed mentioned, the shared bathroom and shower was not an issue. When I arrived, the corridors and my room was eerily clean... like no one was ever there! The features I enjoyed about the hotel: - central location - cleanliness of room and...

Stayed in one of the rooms without its own bathroom- which I thought would bother me- it was no problem . There are actually a few bathrooms and only a few rooms without their own bathrooms so there was never an issue. The room did have a sink and taps and the bathrooms and shower rooms were just across the...

Absolutely loved our stay at the SaltSpring Inn. The room was bright, functional, quiet, and very comfortable. My partner and I slept beautifully. The rooms and bathrooms were spotless. The food at the restaurant is some of the best I've had on Saltspring ( which says a lot as Saltspring has some excellent restaurants). We ate breakfast, lunch, and dinner...

We enjoyed a very nice stay at this location. Slightly older property but well maintained. Staff and owner are all delightful. We had the deluxe room (#2) which was very tidy and comfortable bed. The only downside was the street cleaners who woke us up at two am with the noise of their equipment. Not once but at least four...

Upon discovering the pristine bathroom and noticing the plush bath towels, I could tell instantly I would love my stay at this cozy and comfortable inn. The attention to detail is second to none. I expected to have a good stay here. I did not expect to have my expectations exceeded. For the low season rate of $75, I thought...

Love this quaint little place. The food in the restaurant is very good. The rooms are cozy and are very clean, the shared bathrooms are kept spotless-clean and , the staff very friendly. Love the fact that it is right in the heart is Ganges, so you can walk everywhere.

We enjoy small heritage inns and this one is a gem. I must admit at first I hesitated because of the shared bathrooms but there was no problem at all. We felt very at home and I enjoyed hearing about the reclamation of the building from a dilapidated condition, truly a labour of love. Coming from Vancouver where the heritage...

Stayed here for one night in March and would definitely recommend it! For only $75/night staying in the heart of Ganges, this was a good deal. The hotel is perfectly located right opposite a bus stop and Ganges Marina. There are a number of restaurants and shops nearby, as well as Centennial Park and the highly recommended Moby's Pub.
