My sister and I stayed one night at the Galley of Lorne Inn in May 2014. We booked online and weren't sure what to expect when we got there. We were very pleasantly surprised. Ardfern and the views were amazing, but the Inn blew us away. Our room, was clean and beautifully appointed. The attention to detail was amazing (an... More

We have recently returned from our second visit to the Galley! The standards are just as high as our last visit some twelve months ago, with Andrew just as attentive to his business an works hard ensuring that everyone has a great time, when either staying with him or having a meal in the restaurant or bar. I will not... More

5th visit now to the Galley - I always stay here when touring Scotland with friends on the motor cycles. Set in a beautiful location on Loch Craignish. It is not huge - just 6 bedrooms, so booking is well advised, but Andrew and Sarah are very accommodating and are building the place up to an impressive level. The quality... More

Having visited the pub on a sailing trip last year, it was not difficult to decide to take a short break here on our way up to visit Skye. We had been advised by friends which room to book (the one with the best view over the loch) and it did not disappoint. The restaurant was stunning with food to... More

We had a fabulous couple of days there in early June. The room was excellent - we had the Arran room which has a great view down the loch, and is at the far end of the short corridor so is lovely and quiet. We received a warm welcome from Beverley on reception, and nothing was too much bother for... More
