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

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

My husband and I enjoyed 5 perfect days in Villa #22 at the Galiano Inn and Spa. Our time went way to quickly! We enjoyed the flexibility of being able to cook our own meals, and took advantage of the outdoor BBQ for grilling. Unit #22 has a fantastic view of the water, and is one of the most pleasant...

My mom, aunt and I had a wonderful four day visit on Galiano Island, staying in Villa Suite #22 at the Galiano Oceanfront Inn and Spa. The staff were friendly and helpful, the suite was lovely and had the most amazing view. We enjoyed a fire each night on the deck, looking over the ocean and watched the sun rise... More

I have stayed in many places and have never felt so at peace in the still calmness and beauty at the Galiano Oceanfront Inn and Spa. My boyfriend and I have stayed in a few units on different islands, but we by far enjoyed Unit 22 the best, especially since it is located on the top floor. It was the... More

My husband and I have visited Galiano inn and spa a couple times within the last few years. After the first time we were hooked. It is peaceful and relaxing. A great way to unwind and enjoy each other and appreciate the beauty of the island. We stayed in 22 Villa Suite. We loved that it was central and on... More

Recommended by a friend, this lovely Inn was a last minute decision, but it couldn't have gone much better. I called ahead to book a room and ended up choosing the Romance package for myself and my girlfriend. The package included vouchers for dinner & the spa as well as a bottle of champagne & chocolate in the room upon... More
