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...

We have stayed here twice in the past two years and quite enjoyed our stay, although the rooms are a little on the tired side . On the plus side the food and entertainment in the restaurant was five star, and the staff were friendly and courteous. Its an easy walk to the center of Ganges and the Saturday market...

A delightful property featuring excellent service, wonderful food, and a great location. The charming Ganges village and famous Saturday market is a few only blocks away and our recent weekend getaway could not have been better. The attached organic farm delivers "farm to table" fresh food products to the restaurant on a year round basis and their staff pride themselves...

Stayed here with wife and 3 friends for 3 nights visiting the island. Lovely location overlooking harbour with lots of parking. Really friendly and helpful reception and a good restaurant and bar. Rooms are a bit tired though and just need tidying up but each room has a nice propane fake coal fire. We had a balcony room with harbour...

We stayed at the Harbour house hotel in september. The main advantage of this hotel is the location, walking distance from Ganges and with a nice ocea view or farm view depending on your room. The service at the hotel is excellent and the receptionist gave us some very good advices of where to eat and what to do. We...

The hotel is well located... the room was pleasant enough, nice view but the bonus was walking around the farm garden and then having the food come directly to your plate in their dining room. No bar fridge for our snacks though. We enjoyed the apple festival (last week of September)... especially visiting the different farms and eating apple pie...
