A pleasant one night stay at this wonderful victorian guesthouse. We felt as going back in time during our short stay. The family room we got was very spacious and full of natural light, the bathroom is special, typical of days gone by. Perfect stay and very affordable. We enjoyed talking to the hosts and were very glad to give... More

Situated on an unassuming road this old Victorian property holds a wealth of delights. The host, Marylyn is welcoming and flexible. What time did we want breakfast? All this for £50 an night for tow people! We had the room at the front with a double and two single beds. The double bed was sooooooo comfy as were the pillows,... More

Our recent stay in Stranraer was fabulous, this was due to the warm welcome we received when we arrived at The Old Manse. The house is wonderful full of lovely old original features. Everything was spotlessly clean and the service was second to none. The food was wonderful, all carefully prepared, the best breakfast ever! Nothing was too much trouble... More

Stayed here one night on a cycle touring holiday. Marilyn kindly let us drop off our panniers early in the morning and had arranged for us to stay the previous night at Fernlea next door as she was full up. Bike storage not a problem - just bring them in the house! The house is beautifully furnished and decorated in... More

We have never been more delightfully surprised by am overnight stay than at The Old Manse B&B - right from the start when we were warmly welcomed and settled in to our spacious and comfortable bedroom, our stay was a fine experience. Best breakfast in Scotland, I would say, carefully cooked and from a very wide choice of ingredients -... More

My pal and I arrived in Stranraer by mistake a day early for a concert (the date had been changed but the change never reached the D&G Council website!) and our room was booked up for the next night. Marilyn and Bill saved the day by giving us a second night in another room free of charge!! The accommodation was... More

Our rooms were beautifully furnished and the beds were so comfortable~ the best night's sleep I've had in ages! We had a superb breakfast served in the... More

Wonderfully appointed B&B situated a few minutes from the Town Centre. Easy to find & Parking is reasonably straightforward - access being from a Road to the rear of the property. The House is brilliantly furnished in period decor etc & was really like stepping back in time. We had a huge room, with lots of space & were really... More

We stayed at The Old Manse for one night and were blown away by the kindness of the owners and the amazing period interior of the house. Superb breakfast too. We would definitely make the trip back up to Stranraer again to stay here!
