I read the reviews before booking so was expecting a hotel in need of some updating and yes its not the most luxurious in that respect. But rooms were very spacious and clean, hotel is very central, good car parking, ate in the restaurant, excellent quality meal and watched the curling which was a first for me and used the... More

Imposing building on the seafront and lovely inside. Some of the decor is a bit dated but the bedrooms and bathrooms were modern and very clean. Staff were excellent, such as bringing fresh milk to my room. Beds were comfortable and the area is quiet so a good night's sleep is guaranteed. Breakfast was great, from help-yourself juice and cereals... More

Despite the fact this this is a long established hotel it provided everything that the modern traveller has come to expect. Dinner in the charming old fashioned classic dining room was better tan average. The Black & White service was refreshing. Breakfast was everything you would expect and BETTER. Very convenient if you want to explore this lovely part of... More

Not a modern plastic hotel but one with old world charm. Room good sized, clean and well decorated, breakfast very good and the 5 course evening meal excellent. I fail to understand the negative reviews, we only had two minor faults with the room and to compain about them would have been nit picking. All in all great hotel and... More

Three of us decided on a road trip to Stranraer and a stay in the North West Castle Hotel. The weather was foul but it didn't dampen our enthusiasm. You could not come across a more traditional hotel if you tried. Fantastic service, superb facilities and great grub. The hotel is old fashioned but that adds to the character. There... More

No air con, blankets not duvets, key not card entry. How fantastic to stay in a traditional hotel rather than a sterile chain hotel. Facilities were great. The pool, gym, sauna and jacuzzi were a bonus and the hidden games room a bonus. Watching curling was an experience you wouldn't get at your standard main 4 chains or indeed in... More

We stayed at this hotel in September on a curling weekend. We had a room in the main hotel. The room was large, warm and comfortable as was the bathroom. The food in the hotel was wonderful with large portions. The hotel is old fashioned but everything was clean and well looked after.

Eight of us came for a curling weekend and once again we all thoroughly enjoyed it. Big difference this time in that the curling stones had been refurbished and drew a lot more than i the past. The ice seemed better than normal too with no fall-outs on the sheets I played on. The food was as excellent as ever... More

Don't turn up expecting state of the art . This is a fantastic family run hotel which takes pride in doing things right . The decor may be a bit dated but the staff, service ,food and organisation is second to none. I organised a mini golf break for 4 of us and we had a fantastic time . The... More
