I had the vegetarian full breakfast and it was very tasty. We also had a drink in the pub the evening before. The service here is good and the atmosphere is great with locals and travellers. This is close to the marina and they also serve dinner here as well

Beautiful Inn. It has a bar, restaurant and 7 rooms. The room was beautiful if a little small. The staff were very nice, accommodating and helpful. Dinner was very busy in the restaurant, but service was great, and the food was delicious. The location is beautiful, sitting on Loch side. You can sit outside on the balcony and view the... More

Just stayed at this lovely hotel for one evening. The surrounding views are magnificent. Our room , although a little small was very well furnished and clean. We had a massive en-suite which was also very clean, the only thing lacking was a bath but it had an excellent shower with plenty of hot water. We ate in the beautiful... More

We were quite excited we had a booking here, and believed we would have a good stay! All I can say is there needs to be more commitment by some members of staff! The evening meal was just ok but we had a nice waitress she had blonde hair and was very pleasant. We ordered steaks "medium" but the were... More

Very modern bedrooms. This is effectively an excellent traditional pub with rooms. The bathroom suite was very modern with a large shower and lots of hot water. In fact I got the impression that all the rooms were newly decorated. It is a very good pub with good cask ales. The staff are exceptionally friendly and professional. For dinner I... More

On 18th June we held our wedding reception at The Galley of Lorne, from start to finish Andrew and his team were brilliant! Coming from the area we knew that this was the perfect place to hold our wedding reception and we weren't wrong. Nothing was too much hassle, from welcoming our guests on the Friday night to setting up... More

I was warmly welcomed by Jessica who took my bags for me (I'd told her I'd had a spine op). However, there was then a problem with the lock on my room which meant I had to wait 3 and 1/2 hours to get into it. Jessica and the Chinese lass were brilliant, friendly, supportive, concerned I'd got everything I... More

I've been a visitor to this part or Argyll for nearly thirty years and have dined/drank here too many times too mention. Always a great place to end up after a days trekking. The location is outstandingly beautiful, with views over Loch Craignish and Jura to the west. Always a friendly welcome from staff and management alike. Customer for life.

Food was fantastic, the place was quaint, beautiful and full of lovely characters and the rooms were all you could need for. The staff are friendly and professional but if you want a chat, they're your people and you've come to the right place! We have visited The Galley of Lorne twice now and would definitely make it a third.... More

It was my wife's birthday. We have been married since 1980 so giving each other presents no longer has the same appeal. As we get older perhaps we get more pragmatic and decide to celebrate birthdays with a few days away. My wife has mobility issues so we needed a hotel which had shower cubicles rather than a shower over... More
