Stayed here over New Years Eve in one of the oceanfront suites. Great room with tub, patio table & chairs, fireplace and BBQ on outside deck. The wrong time of year to enjoy the deck to it's fullest but the setting on the beach, close to ferry, bakery nearby, store nearby and restaurant on site make it a great spot...

My wife and I had the fortune of spending 3 glorious days at the Galiano Inn and Spa over New year's 2017, and we had a fabulous time. The villa suite we stayed in was oh so comfortable, the Atrevida restaurant's NYE menu and festivities were spectacular, and the staff friendly, professional and very welcoming. I recommend booking a villa...

We stayed here to celebrate a wedding. The facilities are beautiful with a great view of the water. Very pleasant to sit on the patio and watch the ferries go by. Room are well appointed with very comfortable beds.

My wife and I spent a lovely fall morning at the Madrona Spa here, just after Canadian Thanksgiving. An hour in their flotation pool (which features 600 lb of salts) followed by a massage. Located as the inn is, on the edge of the Salish sea, the views are just stunning. The spa looks out onto the ocean, framed by...

It was with extreme difficulty that we pried ourselves out of the villa we stayed in at the end of 3 nights. The staff we personable and helpful, our surroundings beautiful, and of course the accommodations both cozy and luxurious. It's little loving details which really elevate the Galiano Inn; details such as heated tiled floors, a heaping pile of...

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...

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...

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...

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...

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...
