Reviewed 23 July 2011

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Friday Harbor House! The room was fabulous with an outstanding view. We felt the upgrade price to be harbor side was worth the cost. Staff were friendly, especially at the morning breakfast. The staff came around and talked with each table, offered suggestions for things to see and do and made you feel that they genuinely cared about you as a person not a customer....Our room was very cozy, modern, and romantic. In using our gauge of acceptance, we would definitely return to stay here again!

We thought The Bluff was one of the best restaurants we've ever been to. Wonderful menu, incredibly fresh, local ingredients all thoughtfully and creatively prepared and presented. Everyone on the staff was delightfully friendly and warm. Chef Kyle deserves major kudos for the amazing food he delivers. Double bonus for the fact that he forages for some of his ingredients himself during his time off. That's dedication to your craft! Outstanding ambience, vibe and location. We loved this place.

This is our 10th time staying at FHH. We've been coming to the island for years to celebrate our anniversaries. The room (#31) was perfect! Top corner suite away from the noisier opposite corner. The weather wasn't the best - but the room is so comfortable with everything you need there's no reason to leave! Well, maybe to eat and of course, walk around the darling town of Friday Harbor. BTW - highly recommend Market Chef for lunch (closed on Sunday) and Coho's for dinner, We'll be back!

Everything about Friday Harbor House is outstanding - the location, the room, the view, the restaurant, the wonderful staff. Breakfast was fresh and home-made. You have to try to granola and muffins. Everyone is helpful and will do everything possible to make your stay one to remember.

My wife and I stayed here one night during a long weekend on San Juan Island. The staff were very friendly and we were escorted to our room by a staff member who asked us about what we were planning on doing and gave helpful restaurant recommendations. Our room was very clean and comfortable, with a nice layout - huge soaker tub, seperate shower / toilet area from the sink / mirror, a very comforable mattress, a gas fireplace and a beautiful view of the marina. Breakfast was included and good - rolls and muffins, cold cereal, a small quiche, yogurt and granola, and an assortment of beverages. We would have stayed two nights but they were full. We would definitely stay again!

Room Tip: Ask for a view of the marina!

not only is the view of the harbor amazing, the beds very comfortable, the food excellent, and the staff very friendly, but this hotel is so close to everthing in town (except the duck soup inn which is far far from everything) that you can park your car once and then walk everywhere you want to go---if you decide to leave at all. we didn't attempt to take advantage of spa services, so i can't speak to that, but i can say that the staff were supremely accomadating in helping me arrange several surprises for our stay. the bar in the restaurant is small (4 or 5 chairs) but the view from the restaurant and terrace for any meal is breathtaking. i know there are rooms with a "partial" view or even possibly no view. we paid the little extra ($10 per night...totally worth it) for the "harbor view" room. the tub which looks into the bedroom (though does have thick curtains around it that are easily closed for privacy) was a wonderfully romantic feature of the room. but there are little extras that let you know it's family friendly too.....like the table of board games in the hallway to choose from to take to your room. we had a truly excellent stay here and would certainly recommend it to friends.

We spent one night at this hotel after purchasing a package including room, dinner and breakfast. On arrival we were greeted with very friendly staff, given complimentary parking at the back of the hotel and shown to our rooms. The hotel is an older building which has been extensively renovated in the rooms. Our room had a fireplace, lovely view of the harbor and large jacuzzi tub and separate shower. Everything was clean and comfortable. The restaurant is small with a lovely view. The food and service were a bit disappointing and perhaps reflect the challenge of employing trained staff on the island. Breakfast was very nice and more of a small buffet then the continental breakfast that we expected. After checkout we were able to leave our car parked at the hotel while we explored the small town. Very convenient location and from what we could tell it appeared to be the nicest hotel and restaurant in Friday harbor.
