amazing location, great breakfast, good wifi, huge shower that was let down with low pressure and a great deal online so thanks trip adviser. Oh we were also told breakfast time was from 8.30 so not perfect if you need an early start

After taking the most scenic route to the Hotel we arrived, The owner(Andrew) introduced himself and he knew our names without me saying which was very good customer service. Due to the bad weather the power had gone off but it was due to be back on soon. We was shown to our room which was the Skye suite, lovely... More

Had a very enjoyable 3 days staff and owner great. Entertainment on 31st brilliant locals left to attend village hall leaving us and all the new friends we met during our stay to have a ball. Food good although a couple of dishes not available. Hope to return during summer to enjoy local area a bit more.

With family and friends, I stayed at the hotel on Boxing day 2014, overnight. It was my first time in this part of Scotland, but two of our party had stayed here before and recommended it to us for this year. The hotel was chosen carefully as my daughter is in a wheelchair. On arrival, Laura showed us to our... More

Enjoyed an overnighter in the Inn and enjoyed the atmosphere of the old INN. The real ales went down well and the food was fresh and delicious. The Tiree room was compact and bijou and was very clean and tidy. The bathroom was a surprise as it was spacious. We had a side view of the loch.The staff were friendly... More

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.
