A pleasant hotel in Ardfern, far enough from main road so no disturbances. The reception was quiet, albeit we visited during winter so understandable. The staff were polite and friendly and the rooms were of a good standard. Most hotels do not allow you dogs, or have specific rooms for dogs to be allowed (which are often sub-standard compared to...

My husband and I had a three day short break at The Galley of Lorne Inn and loved it. The setting is beautiful as is the building itself, I particularly liked the obviously, original, historic bar building. The room was very comfortable and immaculately clean. Staying three nights gave us ample opportunity to work our way through the menu and... More

Our second visit to this lovely hotel and every bit as good as the first. We were in the Skye Suite this time. Lovely room and great view of the loch. All very comfortable. The food is first class, don't expect "nouvelle" cuisine though as portions were very generous. Everything we ate was delicious but would particularly recommend the pate... More

Stayed here en-route to Islay. Room was extremely tidy and clean. Large en-suite and a comfy bed. We had dinner in the restaurant which was excellent and recommended. Owner come over and introduced himself which was a nice touch. Bar was also fairly lively (its the only one in Ardfern i think..) and was also friendly. Rooms are quite far... More

This was our first visit to The Galley of Lorne Inn but it won't be our last. Our hosts Andrew and Sarah could not do enough for us, from our early arrival to our departure their hospitality was fantastic. Our trip was booked through 5pm. com on a bed and breakfast basis, we upgraded this package to half board for... More

We stayed here for the weekend of our daughters wedding on 28/02/2015. We booked all 6 rooms in the hotel for the Wedding Party. All rooms were clean, warm and comfortable. Andrew & Sarah were very accommodating in providing extra folding beds for the children in our party. Tea/Coffee facilities were provided in all the rooms and were replenished as... More

Quality service is top of the hotels list, the room was pre-heated and spotlessly clean. There is an excellent welcome pack in the room with information on all local attractions and the hotel is in a fantastic location, perfect for exploring the west coast area. Andrew and Sarah are great hosts and so friendly.The quality of the restaurant food is... More
