Central location, yet peaceful. Walk to town. I arrived late, left early, and so took a viewless room on second floor in the back with low expectations. But wow. High ceilings, all wood, huge room, and though it looks out on the parking lot, the high windows are full of sky. At 7 am checkout there was GOOD coffee to...

This location is fantastic for a short stay on Salt Spring Island. So easy to get to town and either end of the island. The farm is lovely and the people working in the hotel and dinning room are excellent. Everyone went out of their way to accommodate us and our dog. The room has a fantastic view of the...

The wonderful view of the harbour and the ability to sit outside to overlook it in the morning made up for the outdated, but very clean, room. All staff were friendly and very helpful and accommodating when we had to make some changes. The dining experience was wonderful, and a tour of the garden very interesting, even in December.

Really poor dining experience with deceiving website. Chef no longer there and it shows. 70's motor hotel building really needing to be updated--the current interior decor is pretty sad. They should really just embrace the modern of the building and not 'home depot' it up. Fantastic ocean view otherwise

I was excited to have an overnight stay away from home in the hopes it would be more relaxing than home...what a disaster. The carpets are worn and dark, dank. The halls are dark and uninviting...the lighting in our standard room was cold, shadowy and severely insufficient. No light to do make-up in bathroom. The room was cold and the...

My second floor standard room in the main building was spacious and clean, but nothing to write home about. The windows overlooked an attached flat-roofed building, a parking lot, and the hillside where produce is grown. The wrinkly old carpet needed restretching, and the desk was a beat up old piece with several coats of paint and no chair. The...

Stayed July 2014 whilst visiting family in the area. Room was basic & in need of update, both the furniture & decoration. On the other hand, the food in the restaurant is excellent & subject to a second review.

From Rebecha at check in to John in the restaurant, ALL the staff were warm and helpful! The food is AMAZING! They advertise from "farm to table" and they are NOT kidding!! You can walk thru the gardens, past the sheep to see what will be on your plate that day. We were lucky enough to be there for the...

I was able to take many walks in the area of the hotel. The village of Ganges is nearby and quaint with many local arts and crafts available. There are other trails nearby which make for a serene morning walk. You really have to walk out in the organic garden and spend some among the free range farm animals behind...

The Harbour House Hotel overlooks the harbour in Ganges. Sunrise over the ocean is spectacular. View from the balcony (with gas fireplace) is awesome. Oversized bath tub was great. Bathroom shower very nice. Bed very comfortable. Easy 5 minute walk to shopping and very good coffee shops. Best part of our stay was the food in their restaurant their motto...
