We called as we arrived in Haida Gwai after talking to a local but they were booked up already for that night. We reserved for a few days later. Suggest you reserve and there only open Tuesday to Sunday. We arrived at 6pm and were seated immediately. The menu is separated into 3 or 4 courses for either $38 or... More

An excellent place to stay, while our room was not huge it was very comfortable and clean. Great meals in the attached restaurant.

Feels like home, but the chef is a better cook! Lovely location with a river in front and an ocean beach out back, just minutes away from great hikes.

We stayed at Haida House for 3 nights, had breakfast there every morning and a 4 course meal one night. They have a French chef in 2015, truly superb!!! You could be at the finest restaurant anywhere, while watching the eagles catch fish in the river outside the dining room window! I can't recommend stopping here enough! The 3 and... More

Stayed at the House on work in Haida Gwaii. Excellent accommodations and a spectacular location right by the river. I was able to fly-fish in the evening for sea run cutthroats which was a blast. The House has a lovely restaurant and a small bar. Rooms are smallish but nice and suited my purpose just fine.

I believe the property is now called Haida House and is under new management. It is a beautiful building and worth a visit just to see. The food is good with large portions and served nicely though the staff is new, they are trying really hard to please. I will eat here again.

Great food that has brought us here time and time again. The menus are small and specialize in local cuisine. The best quality dinning on all of Haida Gwaii. This is our special occasion dinning experience go to place. Beautiful steaks, seafood and desserts. I love this place.

This restaurant and hotel is now called Haida House, and a definite place to stop in Tlell. We had a delicious meal with locally sourced, fresh ingredients at a table with a beautiful view of the river. Before dinner we hiked to the Pesuta shipwreck (4 hours round-trip) which made the meal seem even more worthwhile. Great walking around the... More

The Haida House (formerly known as Tlell River House) is superb! Tlell is a 30 minute drive north of Queen Charlotte. Food and location are stunning!
