We decided to book a last minute break before Xmas and this inn looked like a reasonable choice. We were wrong - it was a great choice! From the moment that we arrived and were warmly greeted by super-helpful Richard until we left two days later, we felt relaxed, welcome and very at home. This is a family-run concern and... More

An amazing little hotel in a fantastic location. We first experienced this wonderful hotel through a web deal in October. We had such a good time we booked before we left to go back last weekend. There has been staff changes since our first visit, the new staff were very friendly, accommodating and extremely helpful, they couldn't do enough to... More

Writing this review a little late. My wife and I (from Ohio) stayed at The Galley of Lorne Inn in early to mid-May during our vacation to Scotland. Overall I would rate our entire stay as pretty good. To be honest, driving up to this establishment I was pessimistic. The road and other establishments you pass before you get to... More

Just spent a great weekend here for our pals birthday. Hotel is great as are staff. Food is very good and prices are very reasonable. Rooms are very comfortable and warm. Andrew and Sarah and staff couldn't do enough for us so we'll definitely return. Thanks Galley of Lorne for exceeding our expectations. Ross, Karen, John & Betty.

Great wee place which was recommended by family. After trying to book for a few months we were fortunate enough to get 2 nights at the beginning of November. Lovely setting which was helped by great weather. Friendly staff all made us feel very welcome especially the owner Andrew and the bar man/waiter Chris, nothing was too much hassle for... More

Myself, my other half and our son spent last night at the hotel and have came home eager to return. Our room 'Islay' was very comfortable and spotless, with everything you'd expect from a higher rated hotel. Our meal in the restaurant was delicious, as was breakfast, and we were impressed with the bar selection and food and drink prices.... More

We stayed here earlier this week and it was excellent. Our room was very nicely furnished and immaculately clean. Whilst dinner was taken in the Lounge Bar it was very cosy with wood burner right next to our table. Every effort had been made by staff to upgrade this from a standard Bar Meal to something a bit more special... More

Our 4th stay at the galley over 2 nights, Andrew and staff continue to deliver that extra attention to detail that sets it apart from normal establishments. Willie the head chef is a star and delivers a Scottish take on French classics such as bouillabaisse with local fish and langoustines, and venison bourguignon. Truly a place to get away from...
