The amenities were great—deep tub, fantastic bed, and wifi that worked fairly well. Our breakfasts were prepared very well, and we were able to get... More

Restaurant Manager Massimo was just sublime Dougie Captain Compton sorted the drinks and Caroline was speedy taking our food order ably assisted by some conscientious girls - if it were possible to award the Chefs 11 out of 10 - I would simply superb experience

Ideal location. Pleasant welcome. Room 9 was perfect overlooking the sea. Large king size bed, our dog Saffy was made welcome too. Breakfast was good, set us up for the day. Will definitely stay again when we visit my sister.

We were staying overnight in Stranraer and asked around about where to eat and this was the only place that everyone recommended and we were not disappointed. We were with my elderly mother who only has a small appetite so they very kindly let her have a child's portion. The food was piping hot and absolutely delicious and plentiful. I... More

Went for an evening meal with family that knew the restaurant well and highly recommended it. I must admit the place is very popular with locals and the food was delicious. I had the pate starter, highly recommend that to anyone. Although like all pate dishes they never give you enough oatcakes. I had the macaroni cheese for my main... More
