“Ok”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 11, 2007

This place was ok. It's not walkable from the ferry or the harbor, but most of the island isn't. The people and the breakfast (they have an espresso machine) were nice, but the room is too close to the main part of the house...we felt as though we were interrupting their recreation / family time.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 5, 2006

We were bike touring around the Gulf Islands and jotted down a few addresses for B&Bs on Galiano. When we arrived unannounced at the Woodruff (just after labor day weekend- the island was EMPTY!) nobody was home but the place looked lovely, so we dropped off the bags under the porch and headed out for a ride.

We returned just as Carolyn and Brian were unpacking from their shopping day - we hadn't booked ahead and they thought the week would be quiet - but they were wonderfully welcoming and gracious. We stayed in a nice room in the front of the house with a very comfortable bed, and Carolyn made a huge, yummy breakfast that included fruit from the property and coffee from their modern, fancy-looking coffeemaker (best coffee all week!).

They also thankfully took american dollars, (with a fair exchange rate), because none of the ATM machines on Galiano accepted american cards!

The house itself was very nice- it's a lot classier than it comes across in the photos on their website, in my opinion. Galiano itself was lovely, too- far less development than Salt Spring, and more thoughtfully done. The 30-mile rolly out-and-back bike ride to the far end of the island was perfect for a little exercise (once we'd ditched the bags!).
