We stayed at Lakeview Guesthouse as we were traveling from Yorkshire to Cain Ryan to catch a ferry to Ireland. I chose the guest house as it had family rooms and there were 2 adults and 2 children in our party, as well as meeting up with family who were also staying at the guesthouse. The welcome was great, Elaine... More

We had an overnight here on our route home. A very warm welcome from Alan who showed us to our well appointed and comfortable room. Everywhere we saw, was clean, tidy and well appointed with quality fittings and workmanship in evidence. Obviously someone who takes pride in providing the best for his guests. Breakfast was a tasty fresh cooked full... More

Loved it. This is an excellent Guesthouse in Stranraer. Conveniently located within a short distance of the Ferry port in Cairnryan. We recommend this Guesthouse, and most definately... More

Very clean, comfortable, spacious family room with good facilities. Welcoming, friendly and helpful hosts. Good breakfast, catered for gluten free needs. Good position for town, travel in area or ferry port.

Elaine, the owner, helped us in our hour of need when we had arrived in Stranraer after a long trip from Aberdeenshire and the booked B&B was totally unacceptable. She had a room for us following my panic stricken phone call to her at 730 at night. Lakeview is a very homely and welcoming place, room and host. We would... More

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'.

We stayed here one night, but oh would have been happy with longer, we were on the front of the hotel and had wonderful views out to the new park and sea. The room was comfortable, so comfortable, we were in bed early. The room we were given was massive so we never fell over each other. We were advised... More

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.
