Lovely hotel in a beautiful scenic area. Great breakfast as part of the price! Also a very good selection of food on the dinner menu. Staff friendly and helpful. Rooms clean, only down fall was the bed, very old and very uncomfortable mattress.

Spent two nights on a B&B at this little gem on a special deal. Great location for exploring the area. Excellent food, rooms are spotless with all the trimmings. Had evening meal on both nights and met the locals, who are very chatty. The staff, I have to give 5 out of 5 for their service. 👏👏👏👏👏👍

In a world full of change, it was a reassuringly pleasurable experience to return yet again to the 'Galley' and enjoy the same warm and genuine welcome, high quality accommodation and superb food (breakfasts).

The room was spacious and clean, and the ensuite had a good double shower and was spotless. We ate breakfast 3 mornings and dinner one night and I cannot fault the food at all. The sticky...

We stayed in the Tiree twin bedroom which was a bit cramped, but was well furnished with a large bathroom which had a good sized oblong shower cubical and new shower unit. Staff were all friendly and helpful. Lounge bar meals were a tad expensive, but there's no competition and it's winter after all. Could do with a light snack...
