We loved the Galiano Inn - everything was perfect from the location just by the ferry docks, the welcoming staff, the excellent food, and the beautiful views from every room. The rooms were well apointed, clean and modern. The staff really seemed to like going out of their way to make things work for you. We are considering renting out... More

We were looking for a three-day getaway for hiking, reading and relaxing, and this hotel fit the bill. Choose it if you are looking for a peaceful break close to nature with warm and friendly staff. Our room was attractive and comfortable, with opening windows and a balcony large enough for a table and chairs. The grounds were beautifully landscaped... More

My husband and I enjoyed 5 perfect days in Villa #22 at the Galiano Inn and Spa. Our time went way to quickly! We enjoyed the flexibility of being able to cook our own meals, and took advantage of the outdoor BBQ for grilling. Unit #22 has a fantastic view of the water, and is one of the most pleasant...

My mom, aunt and I had a wonderful four day visit on Galiano Island, staying in Villa Suite #22 at the Galiano Oceanfront Inn and Spa. The staff were friendly and helpful, the suite was lovely and had the most amazing view. We enjoyed a fire each night on the deck, looking over the ocean and watched the sun rise... More

I have stayed in many places and have never felt so at peace in the still calmness and beauty at the Galiano Oceanfront Inn and Spa. My boyfriend and I have stayed in a few units on different islands, but we by far enjoyed Unit 22 the best, especially since it is located on the top floor. It was the... More

My husband and I have visited Galiano inn and spa a couple times within the last few years. After the first time we were hooked. It is peaceful and relaxing. A great way to unwind and enjoy each other and appreciate the beauty of the island. We stayed in 22 Villa Suite. We loved that it was central and on... More

Recommended by a friend, this lovely Inn was a last minute decision, but it couldn't have gone much better. I called ahead to book a room and ended up choosing the Romance package for myself and my girlfriend. The package included vouchers for dinner & the spa as well as a bottle of champagne & chocolate in the room upon... More

I had stayed here once a few years back in prime season ... the dinner in the restaurant was spectacular. I returned as a result for a quick getaway from Vancouver. Knowing that it was low season and the restaurant was closed, it seemed worth trying again. The location is lovely with views of the ocean and the in-room fireplaces... More

We are certainly sorry this guest's stay was not happy, especially since she called our restaurant spectacular and enjoyed her stay before...but this time we both appear to have had difficulty. 1.Check-in: She neglected to mention her dog, and how that impacted check-in. The Inn had been busy (long weekend) and while we do our best to clean rooms quickly,... More

Hard to believe you are only an hour by Ferry from Vancouver. Feels like a different world. The Inn is an easy walk from the ferry. No car needed. If you must drive somewhere on the Island just rent one of their Smart Cars. The views of pink Mt Baker at sunrise from our bedroom were heavenly. It is so... More

Thank you for the lovely review! Yes! We are just an hour by Ferry....and guests find themselves in the midst of B.C. wilderness...except they can also enjoy all the amenities of a spa resort plus a quaint little island community of shops and cafes. We are so pleased you were able to take advantage of our Spa, too: our Couples... More
