This picturesque, quaint, family run oceanfront small hotel is a mere one hour ferry ride away from the Lower Mainland. Our one night stay at an upper Villa was simply fantastic! The room offered an outdoor spa tub, barbecue, wood burning fireplace and heater for those cool evenings. Inside comes with a full kitchen ... granite countertops, d/w AND a... More

We had a memorable weekend at the Inn and Spa. Conny and the staff are wonderful. The restaurant was great for dinner and breakfast. The room was peaceful, clean and romantic. I loved the jetted tub!! The spa was amazing too. I had a very relaxing massage, facial, manicure and pedicure. My husband had a float. We will be back... More

We stayed 3 days 2 nights here in a villa and it is up there with the best we've been to. The setting, the room, the location, and the service are all excellent. The hot tub and the fireplace on the balcony is a great combo. We hiked a lot while on the island so a good soak in the... More

We just returned home from our 3 night stay at the Inn. We had a fantastic time. The location is incredible and so close and easily accessible to the lower mainland. The Inn is gorgeous. We stayed in a villa and it was easily the most romantic room we have ever rented. Even though it is November we spent most... More

Villas vs. Spa Suites: There are two buildings - villas (more expensive) and spa suites. The villas have an outdoor tub, fireplace, and BBQ on your own HUGE heated private patio. Spa suites do not have this awesome patio setup. Judging from the exterior, both villas and the spa suites face the water and would have pretty much the same... More

[This review is for a stay in August 2016.] First, the good: The location is nice enough and convenient to the ferry terminal. Housekeeping staff get 5 stars for their service, which included giving up the fan in their laundry room to replace the defective one in our room. Second, the not so good: 1) Room: As noted elsewhere, some... More

We enjoyed a restful weekend away from the city for our October anniversary. The Inn is located right on the ocean with wonderful views. This is a non-peak time of year so ferry arrangements to Galiano are limited. Getting to the Island was a little stressful for us because if you miss the Friday evening ferry, you are out of...

This was the most amazing, peaceful, beautiful place to have a weekend getaway from the daily grind of work and family in Vancouver. I can't wait to go back and enjoy the outdoor tub and wood burning fireplace, hopefully during a rain storm. The couples massage was just what the doctor ordered. This is a real gem.

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
