4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

This was the second time of staying at Tigh Na Mara and overall our stay was very enjoyable. The food both at breakfast and on the nights we chose to dine at the hotel was very good, with an excellent choice and flexibility with breakfast menu. Our disappointment was with the room which was a very small twin, and quite... More

My husband and I went for a meal here yesterday after reading very positive reviews but we wish we hadn't bothered. I had pre-booked a table as they were very busy but when we got there we sat in the lounge area and had our order taken, then waited to be taken to our table for nearly half an hour.... More

My husband and I enjoyed a delicious dinner while holidaying in the area. We have often eaten at The Tigh Na in the past but had a couple of disappointments last year when we felt standards had slipped. It's now back to its' usual high standard. The quality and presentation was lovely. My crab starter and sea bass main was... More

We've eaten at the tigh na Mara many times over the last 12 years since the current owners took over. Popped in for Sunday tea, and as usual the food was faultless. Restaurant was pretty busy, as was the public bar. Seafood pancake was excellent as were the butterscotch profiteroles. Early bird menu (before 6.30) is worth coming early for,... More

We had a fabulous dinner there, food was really good, the dining room was attractive, clean. Staff were very friendly. We stayed in room 4 - it was small, there was no top sheet on the bed, and it gave us a skeevy-feeling - and the bed was not comfortable. The shower was a hose in the tub that you... More

Stayed in room 4 on 1st floor. Unusually this had a bath with a shower suitable for washing hair over rather than a shower cubicle. Not suitable for a stand up shower. The water was hot but ran slowly. The room had a sea view. There was just a small road to cross to get to the front. Tea, coffee... More

Just back from this delightful hotel. Room was clean well decorated if a bit on the small side. If a problem at all, then its the thin walls.. We were unlucky enough to have a really noisy couple in the next room who seemed to think that because they wanted to be up and around before 6am then so should... More

Six of us visited Saturday lunch time and had the three course special. The food was fantastic, at an amazing price, with a very good menu. I would say that the sweets were all home made, even although they didn't claim this. The staff were very friendly and efficient, and I would recommend the Tigh na Mara to all.

This small hotel/restaurant is in Sandhead near to Stranraer & is good value for money. Staff are friendly, welcoming & helpful. Menu varied, food beautifully cooked & service very good. Lovely full Scottish breakfast if required. Plenty to do in the area. Hope to be back soon.
