My husband and I came here for massages & floation therapy in mid-March. Our massage therapy time had to be re-scheduled as the RMT was sick. I thought we would have to cancel our reservation because we have a dog and we had to check out of our Airbnb. However, the owner graciously allowed us to bring our pup to...

I stayed here with a small group for a business trip and was impressed with everything! The property is a very short walk from the ferry terminal, so getting there is no issue. The hotel is well kept and has a neat West-Coast style. The village is tiny, so it's an ideal place to unplug and relax. My favourite thing...

Galiano Island is the first stop on the Southern Gulf Island ferries from Tsawwassen. You can actually go from downtown Vancouver to Richmond by Canada Line train and then by bus to the ferry - no need for the hassle and expense of a car on the ferry. Situated in Sturdies Bay, Galiano Oceanfront Inn and Spa offers a number...

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.
