This almost lives up to its reputation. With its Relais et Chateau designation you'd expect at least that, and given the high standard to which it lays claim, I am tempted to cut my impression of its overall rating from 5 stars to 4, although that seems a bit harsh. Of the 4 meals in total that we enjoyed there,...

My husband and I stayed one night during the Easter weekend, and wished we could have stayed longer. What a gem of a place this is! Every room is individually designed and furnished. The property is tastefully built into the landscape, so walkways and steps curve around the natural rock face. The rooms have names, not numbers (we stayed in...

I stayed at Hastings House for the Easter long weekend in April 2017 and I had a most wonderful experience. The property is very unique and has lots of character. No cookie cutter hotel rooms here! I was in the Sealoft which is a beautiful loft room with a view of the harbour, a queen bed and a nice sitting...

My wife has dreamed of going to Hastings house for a weekend and we were finally able to make it this winter. In fact we made it for a rather special time -- with a rare snowfall in the Gulf Islands. It was the perfect location - and our stay in the Hawthorne room was romantic. The hotel is just...

Hastings House property is beautiful in the summer, but it is quite charming in the fall too. Apart from the authentic farm buildings and manor house and sheep and meadows, there is the view of the harbour. There is a fire burning while one takes tea in the afternoon. There is excellent service at dinner. There is a hearty breakfast...

Last night's New Years Eve dinner at Hastings House Dining Room was a very special event for our group of 13 friends. The rustic fire place in the country inn added a romantic glow & captured the rich tradition of the inn as we were welcomed by the staff and invited to a meticulously set table. Each place setting was...

Our visit to Hastings House was wonderful. From our call to Karen in guest services for our reservation, until Etienne drove us to catch our ferry home we couldn't have been treated any better. We stayed in the Hawthorne Suite,which was large ,comfortable, well appointed and private. The food was delicious, from the muffins delivered to our rooms each morning...

Wonderful B&B, dowdy but cute cottage (needs way more light in the bathroom) and great grounds with a view. Given what's available on the island would have been a 5-star stay. However,... Three stars because when we went to get a table for dinner at the restaurant we were told there was no room for us. "You should have booked...
