Actually it was more than home from home because Lynn makes the best porridge ever! We were given a very warm welcome when we arrived. Lynn showed us to our room (no 5) which was delightful. Beautifully decorated and comfortable with a large en suite. All the extras in the bathroom and the hospitality tray made our 4 day stay... More

When my wife and arrived at Fernlea for a 2 nights stay we were met at the front door by Lynn, who with her husband Kenny are the owners of this Bed and Breakfast / Guesthouse. From the moment we met her, Lynn could not do enough for us. We stayed in room #5 at the top of the stairs.... More

I really felt like I messed these lovely people around - with changing sates and then asking about parking etc.., but they didn't once grumble. Rooms are lovely and very clean. Breakfast was superb Cycles stored safely. Even called local restaurant to arrange a meal for us. Thank you very much

We had a large twin room with comfy beds, good TV, wifi, tea and coffee, etc. Small ensuite bathroom in corner with good large shower. Plenty of big white towels. Breakfast was excellent with porridge and a full Scottish plateful. Easy walk into town centre; leisure... More

The Fernlea Guest House is located well to catch the ferry ... just ten minutes up the road. The house is on a large gated property. We stayed in a second floor corner room. The room was of adequate size ... and furnished in a homey decor ... with a nice view over the back yard and neighborhood. The bathroom... More

Stayed for one night after attending a wedding which started at 1pm. Lynn was really helpful and offered us an early check in at 11am so we could drop our luggage off and get changed on our way to the wedding venue to save travelling in our wedding garb! She was really friendly and gave us a warm welcome. The... More

So glad our party of 6 chose this B&B to stay for the night. Received a courtesy call from Lynn a few days before to ensure all was okay and we were still going to arrive as planned. Although check-in was later than our arrival time it was not a problem for us to leave our bags, cars etc...however it... More

Spotless, comfortable, and a perfect spot for heading over to the ferry port. But most of all, Lynn made us feel like old friends coming home. Nothing was too much trouble, and a wonderfully warm welcome. Some really thoughtful touches that you might not expect in a smallish B&B. Stayed here with a friend to start our road trip to... More

If there is a better Guest house to stay in Stranraer I would be surprised, The owners Lynn and Kenny were friendly and welcoming, the rooms clean, comfortable and well maintained. Breakfast was excellent and served at the time requested. I would have no hesitation in returning there if I were in the area and strongly recommend it.
