Great guesthouse, very friendly welcome, room was spotless and had everything you need. Ideal location, just a few mins walk from shops, pubs, and places to eat. Breakfast was delicious and would highly recommend. Thanks for a lovely stay. 😁

Stayed one night in family room onroad trip. Allan and Elain very friendly and made us feel welcome. Room was lovely and roomy with very comfy bed. Only querky element, sink in bedroom and not in shower room. Would defiantly consider staying again next visit to that 'neck of the woods'.

This is a very budget B&B. The beds were horrible. Bed springs with only a thin covering. Very uncomfortable. Noisy. Located near bars that play loud music till late in the evening. Can hear conversations on the street below.

We stayed there for one night during a road trip. This a very lovely place, very comfortable and clean room. The hosts are very friendly and the breakfast was plentiful. We were even upgraded for free in a bigger room. Nothing to complain about.

I was down in Stranraer to go fishing with friends. The guesthouse is very clean and the standard of the rooms very high. The hosts couldn't have been friendlier and the breakfast is excellent. I will definitely be back and would heartily recommend staying here.

My husband and I only spent one night here but we're very impressed. Beautiful room, everything very clean and we liked the idea for the breakfast menu. Would recommend to any one going to Stranraer. The breakfast was very good and Elaine was very friendly
