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

We spent 2 nights at the Inn and had a wonderful stay. The rooms are beautiful, the grounds are lovely, the spa is fabulous and the restaurant is excellent. We attended the Dine and Dance and danced all night and spent our days hiking trails and beaches and visiting artist studios. We had a single room and would choose a... More

Spent four night at this resort in early June. Beautiful location with outdoor BBQ, outdoor private jacuzzi, very clean rooms, patio set and a lovely outdoor fireplace. We loved the view and the ocean just outside our patio doors. The children had an amazingly time playing on the beach, on the rocks and the front yard. The room was very... More

My husband and I spent a weekend here for our anniversary and were absolutely delighted with everything. We had an ocean front suite that had everything you could want included to run away for a weekend. # 1 - a comfortable king bed! # 2 - Everything else there is no third placing. Our ocean front suite had so many... More

My husband and I spent one night here on a second floor oceanfacing suite and were very impressed. The patio had its own jetted tub and fireplace, where we sat for hours watching the otters with their babies cavorting around. The restaurant was excellent. It is a short walk to the ferry terminal and to a few shops and restaurants.... More

My boyfriend and I were looking for a one night getaway from Vancouver for Sunday night long weekend. Out of all the places that we contacted, we picked Galiano Inn. The manager offered us $199 for one night that included the use of a smart car and one hour flotation therapy. In pitching the offer, he stated that the ferry... More
