This hotel was absolutely amazing. Everything was immaculate. Nothing was too much trouble. Would recommend this establishment to anyone. The only negative if there was one was that it was a bit out of the way, but this should not prevent anyone going there. Would give this hotel 9 out of 5.

Fernlea is located on Lewis Street, one of the main roads running south from the town centre. Though Stranraer itself is rather run-down, and badly needs a major effort to develop new facilities for visitors, Fernlea is a bright spot which deservedly earns a high approval rating. WIth an awesome breakfast menu, tidy well-appointed and spacious rooms, secure parking at... More

We stayed for one night here before boarding the ferry to Belfast. What a fantastic stay it was. Our room, although small, had every amenity and was very comfortable. The modern shower room was immaculate - I don't think it had been used before, it looked brand new. Never seen one so clean!!! Breakfast was a delight and the hosts... More

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

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
