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...

The Harbour House Hotel is situated about a five minute walk from the center of Ganges. Almost all rooms have a view of the harbor which has absolutely glorious sunrises. The rooms are clean and our bed was comfortable. The staff was very friendly and accommodating. I think one of the coolest things about the hotel is its farm and...

The hotel is in a lovely location. The food in the restaurant is excellent but for the price the rooms and bathrooms could use some updating. We were happy to stay there and would do so again as we understand how expensive it is to care for a hotel of this size especially when so much of their business is...

Although the rooms are a little dated and the décor could be spruced up the stay was delightful. The staff were helpful and the food was excellent. My balcony and view of the harbour was very nice and for the price it was a bargain for this experienced business traveller. I would happily return to this hotel. The stairs are...

The staff are very friendly and provide excellent customer service. The grounds are fascinating with the farm on site. The food is delicious, not always cooked to order but still delicious. We traveled with our dog and that room we were assigned was very awkward, not laid out right and dated. Because it's dated, I feel it's overpriced. We purchased...

The older woman who welcomed us at the front desk made us feel very welcomed and relaxed. The room was nice and clean. There were fans included. (I like fans, when I sleep in a "public" place, as they drown-out outside noise, and give me a better sleep.) The restaurant was fantastic: world-class, with live music. The price was reasonable....

We recently spent the weekend here for a 50 year reunion. The staff was very helpful, going out of their way to provide us with everything we needed. The location at the end of the harbour provides excellent views as a backdrop for delightful dinners made with foods produced on their own organic farm. The menu has a good variety,...

This was not our first time. We return because of the location. We love being able to walk into town. We had an exceptional server in the restaurant and an acceptable meal. We found the staff less than friendly or welcoming in the hotel. We also agree that it is time for an upgrade in the hotel. All a bit...
