Took my mother here for her 80th birthday and we both had a wonderful time. All the staff went that bit extra to make sue that we enjoyed ourselves. The food was 1st class and view from the restaurant was picture perfect. The ideal spot for a short getaway with stunning scenery. My only complaint would be the lack of... More

This pub/hotel is set in a truly beautiful location - just lovely. The pub is great, full of atmosphere and friendly people - dog friendly! The food was very good too and the breakfast was enough food to last till evening - always a plus :-) The rooms were fine - but for me it was too small and cramped.... More

A big thank you to Andrew, Sarah and the whole of team for being so professional and attentive. "The Galley" holds a very special place in our hearts so visiting there is always a special occasion - we're looking forward to our next visit sometime next year.

My wife and I recently had a short break at this hotel and were lucky to get booked due to a short notice cancellation. I only wished we could have stayed much longer. From our initial booking into our room "Skye" which was beautiful furnished with fantastic views down the loch, to the excellent evening meal and traditional hearty highlander... More

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
