I spent 6 enjoyable days here in the beginning of October 2017.
Peaceful. Wonderful oceanside view. Spacious, clean and comfortable room with wood burning fireplace. Excellent restaurant. Good service.

This hotel was okay. It was comfortable but not quite what we were expecting.
The ocean view looked out at the ferry terminal. The restaurant was closed because it was October. The whole building gets locked at night and the front desk person goes home, so forget about any service at this place.
It is probably fine for people staying and going out hiking or if you are not into service of any kind. It just needs a bit of work done to it, especially for the high price.
But, overall it was relaxing.

Room Tip: The ocean view is of the ferry terminal, so if you don't mind an ugly view or the noise of a terminal, it will be fine.

From the ferry rides to the stunning gardens this place is a hit. We really enjoyed the ability to walk from the ferry right to the resort with no need to bring a car along, unless of course you want to explore the island a bit more. The rooms were very spacious all with ocean views, the gardens are incredible, everything from bamboo to palm trees to arbutus, very lush. The spa experience was pretty good but the private couples steam room was actually pretty cool for being a steam room, we were cold when getting out. The flotation room is nice. Staff is very helpful and nice throughout. Breakfast was amazing every day with very efficient service. Pizza restaurant right on the grounds is a very nice touch, great pizza right at your doorstep. Only issues I can mention is that the access cards for the rooms de-magnetize if they come in contact with a cell phone, happened a few times with us, as well as the many insects in the rooms, the cleaners left our windows open upon arrival, and while the amazingly fresh air was really nice, most of the windows had no screens. Ceilings also should have been de-webed before arrival.

Room Tip: For the extra $ the Villas side of the resort is really nice

Second time staying here and I would recommend it to anyone looking for a peaceful rustic getaway. First time we stayed in the smaller bedroom and second time we started in the suites. The suites are much bigger with an outdoor fireplace that we enjoyed.

Both times noticed it is really warn down. Hole in sheets, ripped carpet on patio, and just in need of a deep clean. Cobwebs and dust, and bathroom could use a scrub.

I would still consider going back because the staff are so considerate and accommodating, and the location is pretty perfect. Great bakery down the street for breakfast, and babes in the woods had nice pizza and salad as well.

Galiano was our first island stop on our island hopping trip. We reserved a Queen Room but the Inn Keeper upgraded us to a King Suite. This suite was amazing! A fully equipped kitchen, full sized refrigerator, cooktop, wine fridge and all other small appliances. Bathroom was fully equipped with robes, a wonderful shower and a closet containing a washer and a dryer. We spent the majority of time on our fabulous private balcony, which had a wood burning fireplace (which we did not use due to the fact that it was August) a bbq and an outdoor tub. (which we also did not use.) Dinner in Atrevida Restaurant was fantastic. Food was prepared perfectly and service was great. The only negative on this trip was that our neighbours decided to party both nights that we were there. Yelling and screaming with no regard for anyone staying at the Inn. I did complain to the front desk and the issue was taken care of immediately, however, the same thing happened the next evening. The purpose of our visit was R & R but unfortunately, it was ruined by these very inconsiderate people. I did mention this to the person at the front desk upon leaving but they didn't seem too concerned. That for sure was disappointing!
