Booked to stay to as I was playing in the bar downstairs with my band Scruffy Buzzards. Really impressed with the level of comfort and the fact that everything was provided to make your own continental breakfast (including fresh milk) at a convenient time rather than having to wait until the kitchen opens. The hospitality was excellent and the music... More

Our stay was short but comfortable. After travelling for some time it was good to have everything at hand to make our own breakfast at a time of our choosing. A bowl of fresh fruit, croissants, a loaf of bread and toaster with milk, yoghurt, cereal, porridge and spreads provided all that was needed. Access to the rooms from a... More

We booked here upon our return from Belfast, this was totally unplanned due to the unexpected Winter weather which closed all the roads around Stranraer. I admit first impressions were not great, access to the two en-suite rooms was via a rather tired corridor and stair case. However I was surprised the room was clean and warm. I read the... More

We arrived at about 1.30 p.m. and found the Inn closed, even though it says check in from 12 noon. A back door was unlocked and when we entered found a cleaner only. She offered to phone the owner who arrived about 10 minutes later. We were shown a room which was accessed from an undecorated corridor and up a... More

Only stayed the one night, after driving from West Cork, then Stena Llne Ferry. Had another 6 hours travelling after. Arrived fairly late at night, but that was no problem. Left early after having breakfast. The room was really well decorated. It was above a pub, so continental breakfast. Everything catered for. Very impressive. Would definately recommend, and stay there... More

We stayed at the Swan as we were meeting the Ferry from Northern Ireland to pick up a puppy. We wanted a dog friendly B & B to take our dog with us. The atmosphere was fab, the family were lovely (especially Murphy the dog!!). I could not fault the place, the family feel was fantastic especially the well mannered... More

We really enjoyed our stay at the swan inn, the atmosphere is so relaxed and coming and going outside of opening hours was very easy, no "be back by 11 or we lock the doors"! :-) Would definately stay there again, staff are very accommodating and room was cosy and well equipped. 10/10 :-)

I've stayed in various B&B's but the friendly welcoming atmosphere of this B&B surpasses all the rest the couple that run this place are very friendly and welcoming the rooms are very well equipped and very modern in decor I would recommend this B&B to anyone visiting the area and I would stay again as it is very good value...
