This was an unknown as I was traveling from Ontario to a wedding with a new love! The staff were very friendly and the venue was lovely - very romantic! The room called the Galiano was beautiful with a balcony looking out to the ocean and very well equipped. A beautiful fireplace though in August we didn't use it. The... More

(You only pay leaving Victoria). The ferry was direct, and it took about 45 minutes. The ferry dock is a stones throw We started with a couples spa package.... More

We came here for dinner with a family friend and it was really nice. The food is delicious but their options are limited depending on the season and how busy they are. I tried the beetroot pasta which was amazing! Afterwards we walked around the grounds and went out onto the pier. I can understand why this place is a... More

My husband and I booked the elopement package in August. It was absolutely perfect for us-low key and stress free! Conny went above and beyond for us, not only taking pictures during the ceremony but was also a witness! Our suite was gorgeous with an awesome harbour view, and we made good use of the outdoor tub. The only hitch... More

The Galiano Ocean front Inn and spa is a delightful hotel set in tranquil gardens right on the ocean. We rode our bikes across from the mainland and it is just minutes away from the ferry so very easy to get to. There is an open air restaurant in the garden over looking the ocean which serves a selection of... More

Our two night stay at the Galiano Oceanfront Inn and Spa was generally nice - room was clean and you get to see the oceanfront (and ferries), staff was fine (although only available from 8-6pm!!), you get a good nights sleep as it is quiet at night, there are lots of channels on TV to watch or you can just...

Spent only one night at the Inn as that was only availability......room was large, comfortable - good bed, 2 easy chairs and a wonderful walk-in shower (we seniors love this) and spa tub for the younger set! We had a great view of the ferry dock and Active Pass so it was not boring sitting on patio or in room.... More

Stayed at the hotel for a wedding and was very impressed by the beachside setting, spacious rooms and great food. The venue is ideal for a long weekend away and was a fantastic setting for a wedding. The staff were helpful and friendly and helped make for a memorable weekend.
