My wife and two children, ages 16 and 14, were eager to get away for a quick two-day weekend trip to Galiano. Have never been to the southern gulf islands but was curious about this facility. From the moment we arrived, on bikes I might add from the ferry terminal, we were immediately greeted by the manager. After a quick... More

Amazing view from the room. This is definitely a place to relax during the weekend! All rooms are fully equipped with kitchen, hot tub in the patio and barbecue. The shower is also really great! They also serve breakfast in the restaurant and it's a place I recommend!

We had a great getaway weekend with friends, staying at villa suite 19- very relaxing & comfortable with beautiful view of the ocean. We enjoyed a great dinner in the hotel restaurant & took in the sights of Galiano as suggested by Conny, our gracious host. Would love to come back in cooler weather to make use of the fireplace...

Our family just spent a superb weekend at the Galiano Inn & I suddenly realized I had neglected to write a review when there last year. Granted our magnificent weather enhanced the experience, but we truly love this Inn. This place is so peaceful that one just automatically unwinds. The staff are gracious & always available to help but they... More

My wife and I got married in June. Even tough it was just the two of us eloping, the staff was really helpful and accommodating picking the spot we wanted for the ceremony and coordinating the details. The hotel has many stunning spots to choose from for the ceremony and photos. Also, the rooms and amenities are really nice and... More

Hi Gerardo! I was so honoured to be a witness at you and Kelly's elopement, and was so touched by how sweet it was. (yes, I cried)...You and Kelly were so lovely to host, and all the staff kept referring to you both as "that sweet couple". We hope that now that you were married here that we'll get the... More

The service cannot be beat. The owner is great as is all of her staff. May have to bring the hubby next time. We asked to order the wood fire pizza just before the restaurant closed and Allie actually came to our balcony, took our order and delivered it to our room. Definitely over and above what we expected. We... More

Oh Angela, I'm so glad you had a good stay! You were lovely ladies to host, and we'd be honoured if you came back to visit. Ali is one of our finest, and we're lucky to have her.

This property is made for relaxing. Ocean views from all rooms and very quiet. We chose to use the spa for a couples treatment which was very nice. The restaurant has a limited menu, however, we found the service and food quality top rate. The rib eye steak was the best I have had. The salmon was juicy and not... More

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
