Salt Spring Inn & Restaurant (Ganges)
DH Reviewed New 2011
250.537.9339 / 837.537.9339
10% off rooms
This charmingly renovated hostelry is right in the heart of
Ganges on beautiful Salt Spring Island. Cozy rooms (small but very
well-appointed and with EXCELLENT beds) are completely re-done but with such
good taste and quality that the place doesn't look brand new. And
considering what you can pay to stay on Salt Spring, this accommodation is
quite reasonably priced. One nice touch that shows the attention to detail
is the almost-good-enough-to-eat supplied soap and shampoo from the local
island soap company. The spacious bar/restaurant is all woody and
comfortable, the food was very good and the attached street-side patio is
much nicer than than most on which to quaff a cold one on a hot Ganges day
after a long (or short) ride. A bonus is that it's only a three minute
walk to everything in this appealing island waterfront town. What else? The
nearby, private covered parking and full bike wash area has
excellent supplies to wash and detail motorcycles (Jeremy, one of the
owners, is a rider/pilot/sailer, so he knows where you're coming from).
If you go to check out the two Salt Spring DHs and assorted Gulf Island TEs,
and you're a cheese fan, make sure to visit the two fromageries on the
island, one sheep based and one Jersey cow based. Mmmmm, they both make
great cheese, and allow tastings. Say hi to innkeeps Jeremy Milsom or
Barry Edwards, they'll make sure you feel welcome!
The rigorous attention to the finest ingredients, homemade
sauce and dough made on the premises leads to reputedly the best damn pizza
there is to be had in town. all southern Vancouver Island, and maybe even in
the whole country. The owner Clive is a rider and also Sec/Treas of the
Vancouver branch of the Latin American Motorcycle Assoc. We know we're stopping in the next time we go through Sooke on our way between DH62 and DH18.
