The most amazing steak sandwich ever for lunch yesterday and so tonight after an afternoon on the water we enjoyed the restaurant menu , a slightly small choice however it allows the chef to create these few choices to a very high standard . The mini seafood platter was gorgeous, a must if your a seafood addict like us. The... More

We booked to stay here when a family member was getting married nearby. They accept dogs and were welcoming to my lab Rosie. It's a locals inn with wonderful views, comfy beds and lovely food. Everyone was welcoming and friendly. I'd definitely come back here when visiting the area.

We stayed here for 2 nights as part of a tour of Scotland. The area is lovely if not as dramatic as some parts of the country. The hotel is on the bank of a loch has great views and is quite tranquil. Good for walking and cyling in the surrounding area. The hotel itself is a pub with bedrooms... More

The location is very good and I would say that we had an enjoyable stay at this hotel. The positives would be the location,the undoubted character and certain aspects of the rooms. We stayed in the Islay room which is a double bedroom. Since we have a young child we had asked for a portable zed bed to go into... More

We returned to the Galley once again in May this year on our annual touring trip to the highlands. The inn is located on the edge of the loch in a peaceful village. I'm pleased that nothing had changed (except the addition of a new room ) ,the staff ,food and room were excellent. The dining room has a stunning... More

Fantastic food, both dinner and breakfast. Very comfortable and clean room, and wonderfully friendly staff. The bar also stocks real ale which on our visit was kept in good condition. Plenty of sea birds to spot whilst enjoying the peace and tranquility of this out of the way haven.

My husband and I stayed here 3 nights while going to a conference in Craobh Haven in early May. The Inn was quiet, the bathroom large and clean, our room was nice and warm and our room looked right out onto the Loch. I loved waking up to that view each day. The breakfast was large and delicious. We tried... More

My wife and I spent 3 wonderful days here. It is the classic Scottish hideaway which was ideal for us as we enjoy walking. The cuisine was excellent and the staff more than helpful. The bar is a welcome retreat after a days walking and the choice of single malts is unsurpassable. We will return.
