We are no strangers to Galiano but had never before stayed at the Galiano Inn. We were looking for somewhere to stay for a three-day birthday treat, and as great believers in Trip Advisor, took their reviewers' advice, which--as always--was reliable. As some kind of organization was having a retreat there, all the inn rooms were taken so we stayed... More

My husband and I made a last minute decision to go away last weekend. I chose the Galiano Inn based on the wonderful reviews and the last minute availability. We were NOT disappointed. Galiano is a quiet island in the Gulf of Georgia and so far the only Gulf Island we have visited. There wasn't a lot of activity but... More

My line of work is such that I spend most of the year travelling. As a result any of the places I've stayed at blend together, but the Galiano Oceanfront Inn and Spa shall forever stand out in my memory as an idyllic refuge from the ugly humdrum of city life. The rooms are magnificent, as are the grounds -... More

The Southern Gulf Islands between the mainland of BC and Vancouver Island are true jewels and should be visited at least once and if you're going to Galiano Island and you don't have a house or tent to stay in while you're here, you should consider the Galiano Oceanfront Inn and Spa. Right on the waterfront adjacent to the ferry... More

It was our first visit to Galiano and it will not be the last. Fortunately our daughter works on the island which drew us over. Our selection of this terrific property was our first choice and turned out to be one of the best choices we have made in our travels. We had a second floor room and recommend room... More

I stayed at the Galiano inn for the third year in a row (for the literary festival-also well worth checking out!!). Every year I am blown away-I feel like I have stepped into a fairy tale. The grounds are beautifully landscaped and transport you to a lush, magical world where anything seems possible. The rooms have exquisite views of the... More

Spent an amazing time on a special island at the beautiful Inn on Galiano this past month. One might think winter might not be the ideal time for such a visit. Wrong! Despite hosting a book festival simultaneously, the Inn met all my expectations - and more. I hate to single out individuals, but I will: Conny, Jodie and Tessa... More

I had the great pleasure this weekend of staying at the Galiano Oceanfront Inn and Spa during the Galiano Island Literary Festival. What an amazing treat! From the warm and welcoming staff - who couldn't do enough for us - to the sumptuous "villa" accomodations. Loved relaxing at the end of the day in the outdoor tub in front of... More

My husband and I visited the Galiano Inn & Spa for a Valentine's weekend and had the most wonderful time. We arrived earlier than expected Saturday am and were thrilled that we could check-in right away. Our villa was gorgeous and well stocked with all of the amenities we needed to feel at home. We spent Saturday afternoon enjoying the... More

We had the greatest time visiting Galiano Inn and Spa. We stayed in one of the Inn rooms and the atmosphere/experience was incredibly warm and cozy. Staff were very helpful and professional. The entire area was very clean and very well-kept. The location is superbe - close to the ferry (but you cannot hear the minimal traffic that comes through)... More

Hello, Nick W, Wow! Thanks for your great comments. I just returned from being away and was understandably concerned about another review that spoke of the housekeeping issue. And so happy to see your review, and others, that complimented us with lots of 5 stars: thank you for making our day! It is always heartening when someone takes the time... More
