My Partner and I stayed at the resort for Family Day long weekend and loved it! The restaurant was delicious and staff were incredible. The fireplace and jetted tub on the patio was great. Would love to revisit in the summer!

we had a very peaceful ,relaxing weekend, a lovely place from which to explore Galiano. Our meals in the restaurant were very good,about the same price as other places in this range. We also visited the Spa for relaxing massages, and enjoyed the things for sale in the gift shop.

I can't rave about this beautiful, waterfront, idyllic boutique resort. Highly recommend. We stayed in Gabriola Suite with its lovely wood burning rock faced fireplace, large jetted jacuzzi tub, walkout to delightful professionally landscaped grounds, library/games room, spa, pier with fabulous oceanview. They even provide firewood and romantic candles complimentary. Location is excellent, very private; yet, adjacent to ferry terminal....

What a wonderful review, thank you so much! We loved that you loved the wood-burning fireplace, jetted tub and the gardens to the ocean. You are the first I think to mention our guest Library & Games room: it is a lovely new addition. You will have to come back when our Atrevida Restaurant is open (always closed in January...

Loved the outdoor/indoor log fire place perfect for cool January evenings, a very relaxing long weekend and being pet friendly was a bonus. A very minor hiccup with the room that was dealt with efficiently and professionally.

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...

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...
