I felt the need to review this business to save someone the headaches we have encountered. We had the entire hotel reserved for guests attending our wedding on Galiano next summer. We confirmed with (name withheld) over the phone 4 times regarding the details of the reservation and that it worked for them. As weekend residents of the island, we... More

We had a wonderful perfect 2-day getaway. Our first time on the island. Warren is the best, he is friendly and professional, and nothing is impossible if requested. We really appreciate the quietness and calmness overall (that's exactly what we need- R & R). We love the tea pot, tea cups and wood burning fireplace- perfect for cold autumn nights.... More

We stayed 2 nights in October, tried the Flotation Therapy and had a few dinners in their dining room. The food was adequate, but could be better, but service was fine. The grounds in the Fall are beautiful and peaceful, as it was very quiet at the Inn. Our room had a view of the ferries coming and going, others... More

Once again, I had a fantastic stay at the Galiano Inn and Spa...I highly doubt the Conny and her staff are capable of delivering anything less than "amazing"! Comfortable, beautiful room with gorgeous views, amazing service, amazing Thanksgiving dinner (my portion could have easily fed 2 people). Fun spa treatment...all couples MUST book the "Healing Earth Journey Together" treatment...not to... More

From the moment we checked in we were treated like a close family friend. Every need was met with seamless efficiency. We're stayed at many 5 star hotels and resorts, but I would rate this as 10 stars. Attention to detail and anticipation of needs impressed me. The dinning room was top notch. The ambiance was wonderful - watching the... More

Three couples with three rooms for a birthday weekend. Left our vehicles at Tsawwassen terminal and enjoyed the short ferry ride to Galiano. The Inn is an easy 100m walk from the wharf. Efficient check-in. - Our suite with separate bedroom was superb. King size bed, comfortable furnishings including two tv's (which we never used), washer and dryer, multi-jet shower,... More

What a fantastic stay we had at the beautiful Galiano inn and spa. Our room was fantastic, outdoor patio fireplace and tub was definately worth the extra bucks. We used both each night we were there. The view is amazing, the beds comfortable, and the spa experience was heavenly. We had a fabulous couples massage overlooking the garden and pond,... More

Extremely friendly staff greet you as you arrive to the lovely oceanfront setting. The restaurant was really beautiful and the food was superb. Spa was small but very well run, professional and incredibly relaxing. Our room was clean and nicely decorated. We had a few instances of being woken in the night due to water pipe noise. I would %100... More

We enjoyed literally every moment we had on Galiano Island, and at this beautiful Inn. They made every effort to make us more than comfortable on our quick getaway from the "real world." My husband and I travelled early on Friday, by air into Victoria, a quick easy cab to the Ferry, and then ferried directly to Galiano. The hotel... More

The Galiano Inn felt like a resort from the moment entering the welcoming gates onto the property. Walking around the gardens and grounds, felt like a vacation. The issue is with the amenities and services. Breakfast service has a 90 minute window on weekends 8:30 to 10 am and no brunch or lunch at all. Certain items on the menu... More
