My family had a wonderful weekend, my wife and child had the family room which was pristine, warm and very, very comfortable. The staff were outstanding and we had our family over for dinner in the restaurant which was absolutely fantastic!! This hotel makes us really look forward to our next visit to Stranraer!! Thank you to all the staff... More

I have just returned from a 2 day stay at the Craignelder. I would recommend anyone travelling to Stranraer to stay in this hotel rather than any other (and I've stayed in a few with great reviews) Rooms are lovely, comfortable, clean and properly furnished with good quality furniture and fittings.

Stayed here last weekend with wife and 2 teen sons, all of us loved it. Very clean, well equipped rooms. Staff friendly and helpful. Ideal for ferry to Belfast. Breakfasts great. Restaurant outstanding, a meal here is a must even if you're staying elsewhere.

We were recommended this hotel by a friend in town, and he facilitated the booking for us as we were coming from Canada. We were given the newly renovated Room 9, which faced the sea. 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.
