This is a great place to stay in Stranraer. The room was very nicely presented. The bathroom, whilst small had a very nice shower. The bed was very comfortable. The room was spotless and very cosy. Breakfast was EXCELLENT!!! Very filling. The owner, Lynn, was very welcoming and helpful. Happily recommended a stay in this B&B.

This was our best stay on our trek throughout Europe. The places in the UK were easily the best and Kenny and Lynn (the owners) sure know how to put on a quality establishment. Google maps sent us the wrong way and I called them up and they stayed on the phone with me and even waved me down on... More

Myself and a friend spent 3 nights here, we were met with a warm welcome and shown to our room which was very clean and well presented, throughout our stay our room was cleaned daily, and the owners were more than happy to give us directions for local shops and restaurants. Lovely friendly place and would recommend this guest house... More

Four of us stopped a night here before boarding the ferry to Ireland.Two had travelled from Scotland and the other two from Lancashire. Lynn and Kenny made us feel very welcome, giving us ideas for where to get a good evening meal in the town. We had lovely large,well decorated rooms and the breakfast was excellent. Great attention to detail... More

Very comfortable and beautifully decorated twin room; spotlessly clean. Lynn and her family are very friendly and welcoming. Breakfast was delicious and filling - didn't need to eat again until evening meal. Would definitely stay here again and recommend to others.

Stayed in an en-suite twin for 2 nights. Lynn was extremely welcoming, friendly and accommodating despite our somewhat tardy arrival. The room was big, beautifully decorated, immaculately clean and had plenty of the small touches that make all the difference like biscuits with the tea and coffee, a hairdryer and even hot water bottles! The house itself is just off... More
