I find it hard to write this review as we had such mixed experiences throughout our stay. The check in/out staff were great; courteous, showed us all the features of the room and answered all our questions. The food at the Pizza Patio was delicious and the view was amazing. The breakfast at the restaurant was very good and they... More

The room was fantastic! Very large with a full kitchen. The best part was the patio including a fireplace, outdoor jet tub, and a large table with comfy chairs to sit in and enjoy watching the ferries pass by.

This beautiful little spa hotel is literally steps from the ferry terminal, making it ideal for walk-ons and bike trips from Greater Vancouver. We spent our first day on Galiano Island camping and walking the incredible beaches at Montague Harbour, with dinner at the Hummingbird Pub, then our second day relaxing at the Inn and Spa. Driving in, we were... More

Was here for a Wedding, we completely took over the Inn for a Friday, and Saturday. Wow what a place, absolutely fantastic, anyone looking for somewhere different this is the place, all rooms look out to the bay. To add to this we booked a Seaplane that brought us direct into the jetty, this was 20 min flight from Vancouver,... More

We booked the venue for a weekend wedding May. Our experience with Conny, Tessa Warren were top notch. The inn accommodated all of our wishes and managed all our friends, family and children with style and relaxed ' island time' we desired. Our friends and family who stayed loved the venue and their rooms especially the villas with fires places... More

We spent this weekend at the Galiano Inn to attend a wedding off-site. We booked here thinking it would be a special treat since the two nights would add up to over $500. The experience was a very impersonal hotel experience. Our room was a small comfortable hotel room-nothing more, nothing special. Our experience was not that of an friendly... More

My husband and I visited the Galiano Inn twice recently. We visited for two days around June 21 and came back again for four more days July 2-6, 2014 as we had such a great experience. The location is perfect and the Inn is peaceful with great hosts. We were arriving by Boat from Vancouver. Connie kindly sent ten orcas... More

We just returned from a fabulous weekend getaway to the Galiano Inn & Spa! Both having busy jobs, we needed a recharge and chose Galiano as it is so easy to get to from Vancouver. From the moment we came through to gates to our departure, we received great service from wonderful staff in a restful sanctuary of a resort.... More

My husband and I chose the Galiano Oceanfront Inn and Spa for our very private and intimate wedding. The correspondence throughout the planning of our wedding was fast, efficient, and extremely friendly. As many brides do, I had many questions; they were all answered in a courteous way. Great care was taken to meet all of our needs and provide... More

A friend and I stayed at the Inn at the beginning of June for three nights. The rooms and the gardens are lovely, but I think that the price of the room is still relatively high. The restaurant food is good but expensive, and the service is spotty - our waitress the first night was great, but the waitress the... More
