We had the opportunity to visit this island over a weekend. The inn is in walking distance from the ferry so no need to bring the car over. You can hire a car from the inn for half or full day. The inn has everything you need to feel at home with the extra beautiful view and complete quiet surroundings.... More

Chum and I spent our annual summer long weekend away together at this Inn. Opted for the full spa experience which we booked at the time of booking our stay. We dined in the restaurant on our first night which was simply delightful. Food was lovely and delightfully presented and staff attentive but unobtrusive. We also breakfasted in the Inn... More

Attended a pre- wedding gathering here, the staff was most accommodating, the wee patio has the best pizza! We came back the next day for pizza lunch overlooking the ocean. The spa looks lovely, will make plans to stay another time. Only drawback... There is no coffee available in the patio area, this is really a no brainer..... Coffee, cups... More

My wife and I stayed here for 2 nights on the very quiet Galiano Island. There is a lot to like both about the Island itself and the Inn/Spa. Below are some of those things: - they had the cheese platter and champagne waiting for me in my room when i arrived. - the property was beautiful and ideally located... More

My wife, baby boy and I stayed here in April 2016 as a mini break from our family visit to Vancouver. The rooms are very comfortable and having a suite was great given we had a sleeping baby to manage around. We dined at the restaurant which was very tasty indeed. It is amazing that a place so remote feeling... More

Indifferent food,uninspired. We ate at the restaurant attached to the Inn and were disappointed in the quality. A salad that was served with limp greens covered in a mystery dressing. Time to up their game.

Left the hubbies and kids at home and treated ourselves to a girls getaway, and what a treat it was!!! From the moment we arrived EVERYTHING exceeded our expectations! The grounds are beyond amazing, the room clean, good size, open with a beautiful ocean view, the staff friendly and helpful! Our package at the spa was spectacular! LOVED the ladies!... More

We stayed only two nights, but everything about the Galiano Inn was impressive. From the personalized tour of our room and amenities to the wonderful breakfasts. A very elegant setting on a casual island.. Service is over the top - we happened to leave some items behind...they were quickly packaged up and mailed to our home. Says something about the... More

Wonderful cozy inn right off the ferry terminal. Little pricey, and would be nice if all rooms were the same. Last time we stayed the room had a jacuzzi which didn't work. This time the room (texada I believe) didn't have one. No firewood because of fire risk but it was cool and raining. Food options are good,, try the... More
