The Galley of Lorne Inn was the chosen venue for a large group dinner event held early June 2015. We booked the hotel for our week long annual event and we were not dissapointed. We were well looked after throughout our stay and, whilst the rooms were a little jaded, the all round service was truly excellent! Andrew's attention to... More

Celebrated my parent's 60th Wedding Anniversary recently at the Galley of Lorne and were not disappointed in the venue we chose. The staff were so friendly and patient pandering to a large party's every whim and nothing was refused to us. The food was delicious and very well presented and I don't think I've ever seen a better setting for... More

This hotel has a brilliant location. I thought the room I stayed in was disappointing as it did not have a window - it was dark and prison-like because of this. This was not made clear at the time of booking with Booking.com. It was also a little noisy at night - not much soundproofing and I was glad not... More

Sadly, I have not had the opportunity of staying in this Inn but would dearly love to some time soon..The Lochside setting is superb and the food is of the highest quality. Lovely fresh seafood - the razor clams were a true delight, so fresh and succulent. The clams i can very occasionally find in the fishmongers at home are... More

What more could you possibly want? Remote location, great food, solid service and views to die for. If you are looking for an escape from your hectic lives; here is your answer. This place is about 2.5 hours from Glasgow and worth the effort to make it here. I cannot praise it high enough. I highly recommend staying in the... More

We stayed at this hotel when we were unable to book a room for out planned stay in Oban for the night. It's about a 30 minute drive south of Oban, but well worth it. The room, although smallish, was comfortable with a comfortable bed and pillows. The bathroom was good sized and comfortable with a large combination shower/tub. We... More

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
