We stayed for 3 nights whilst travelling around Scotland. This was the best place we stayed by far and was not the most expensive. We had the Arran suite although it is a standard room. The view is beautiful. The bedroom and bathroom were tastefully decorated and well equipped. The bed was reasonably comfortable though the pillows were rather lumpy.... More

We absolutely love this place. This was my second stay, and both times travelled a long way off my route to stay. Location is beautiful, staff are happy and friendly, and accomodation is tasteful, clean, and has a very premium feel. The bar, and food are great, and on both stays the owner came to my table to enquire if... More

Beautiful place, so unexpected when u turn off the main road. Beautiful views, lovely walks. Andrew, Sarah and staff are lovely and Andrew took the effort to call us by our first names and filled us in on everything that was going on ( including during our wee power cut ) 😃 Breakfast was always delicious and evening meals were...

Our stay of two nights at The Galley of Lorne Inn were exceptional. We were visiting Inverary Castle (one of us a Campbell) and Adfern provided an out of the beaten path lodge on the water. The location was out of the tourist path but provided easy access to Oban and Inverary. The first night we enjoyed a beer in... More

Off the beaten track, we found this by pure accident and were very glad we did. Very good food, very friendly owners and staff and well worth the detour to get there. The room was on the small side but the bathroom was huge.

A group of 12 of us had a 3 night break at the Galley and it was faultless. If you like real ale, Restaurant with a great view over the loch and hearty, tasty locally sourced food this is the place for you. The rooms are spotless and very comfortable. Andrew and Sarah run the Galley in a very relaxed... More

This was our second stay at the Galley of Lorne and we were given the new room which was nicely finished. I had forgotten how nice the location was, with great views and a couple of pleasant walks straight from the hotel. The food and service were excellent and there is a brilliant view from the large Dining room.

Our "Secret Scotland" dive trip to West Coast was a great success in large part to the faultless accommodation, food and drink at the Galley. Our party of 12 took six rooms for three nights. Many thanks to Andrew and Sarah for the work they put in to help make this long weekend good fun, from the attention to detail... More
