Room was clean. Decor starting to look rather tired. Mattress way to soft that you can actually feel the bed base through the mattress when sitting on the bed. The room was warm but the radiator was very noisy. Curtains unlikely to have sufficient black-out effect in summer months. Shower was spacious and provided a good stream of hot water....

First impressions count when checking in to accommodation. We arrived at the Galley of Lorne Inn at 3:10 pm. We rang the bell and took note of the message on the unmanned Reception desk suggesting we be patient and wait for someone to come. 20 minutes later we rang again and waited a further 20 minutes. My wife decided to...

I'm sorry if you felt this way, but as discussed many hotels close during January. We stay open with limited hours so that we can provide a service to our local community and guests throughout the whole year. I fail to see how it is our failing that when making your booking the previous day you were unable to access...

We stopped at first because the place was on our way to "the North", but the kindliness of the staff, the quality of the night (room, bathroom, bedding) and the activities in the neighbourhood definitely will make us coming back for a longer stay.

We stayed here on a very cheap deal through groupon. It was for 3 Nights but we only lasted 2. The first thing we noticed was the smell of foist as we entered reception but it appeared restricted to that area. We were shown to the uist room. Which appeared ok. That night on getting into the bed we found...

I visited The Galley of Lorne for a short break from the city and can't recommend it enough. Travelling on my own for a few days peace I was made to feel very welcome, with extremely friendly and helpful staff.

We spent a night here last week. The staff were excellent and our room was spotless. My meal was delicious but my partner had a bit of a problem with his. I have to say the waitress was very efficient dealing with this. We came away knowing that everything had been done to make our stay memorable.
