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

Wonderful place to relax and rewind. Pub is great. Mark is the best--helpful, knowledgeable. Owner works very hard to make sure everything is the best it can be. Restaurant food can't be beat. Absolutely delicious. Local convenience store is within walking distance. A sparkling white wine option would be nice. Overall, the Galley of Lorne Inn is great.

Stayed here on business and was thoroughly impressed. Room was to a high standard, food was fantastic and the setting was stunning. Wouldn't hesitate to stay again on business or pleasure! A bargain at the price too.

A friend who is building a house a few miles away from the Galley of Lorne recommended that if we had a chance it would be well worth a visit. As it turned out we were passing around lunch time and turned off the main road onto a single track road (with passing places), that took us out to the... More

We spent 5 nights at this great place and enjoyed every minute of it. The staff were second to none from Andrew the very attentive owner to Ocean the juggling waitress! The room was clean and spacious. Our evening meals and breakfasts were excellent especially the fish dishes. The views from the beer garden are wonderful and a perfect end... More

We stayed in the Skye Suite. It's not a suite at all - it's a fairly ordinary smallish room with a small settee suitable for perhaps one child.Comfortable bed, very clean and outstanding views. Friendly and helpful staff. A very peaceful and relaxing location.

Our experience at the Galley of Lorne was not a particularly great one. The website makes the hotel rooms look beautiful but in reality our room was very tired and rather dirty. There was what look like blood splatters on the wall in the bedroom and the bathroom although relatively clean was very tired and shabby. The walls could do... More

Where to start? The Pub with it's great beer, attentive staff and lively atmosphere? The Restaurant with it's great food, great service and lovely views? ( I can recommend the lamb, had it twice and something has to be good for me to order it twice) The rooms with comfortable beds and very good facilities? This is what we found... More
