We; a family of 16, found out on the Tuesday that our ferry to Arran was cancelled and we had to find alternative accomodation for our matriachal 80th Birthday celebrations. We discovered this hotel; which was happy to accomodat at such short notice. On entering the hotel; in all honesty, we though it was a little tired. However that paled... More

I really love staying in older traditional hotels, and the North West Castle is one of the best ive stayed in recently. It has a air of historic grandeur about it, yet still has modern up to date facilities. We were greeted by friendly staff, including a lad who carried our bags to our room. The rooms were spacious, warm... More

Others have noted that this hotel does not have the "freshest" decor, but our experience was that the room was clean, quiet, comfortable and reasonably priced. The staff was very friendly and helpful, offering recommendations, helping us make a change in our reservation, establishing a wifi connection and patiently answering our questions about the curling rink and other facilities.

6 of us stayed in 3 twin rooms on Friday and Saturday 12th and 13th June. We had in the previous 2 years stayed at the Fernhill Hotel in Port Patrick, a sister hotel in the McMillan family chain, and were impressed such that we thought we'd try their Stranraer eqivalent. This was once an impressive building ( incl pool,... More

This hotel could use some TLC but it is centrally located and the staff is friendly. It's a fair value and quiet. The rooms need updating and modernizing. It's a family friendly place and has good parking and a great location.

Initially I was a lite dubious as I approached the hotel, but inside the staff were pleasant, friendly and helpful. The whole hotel decor is in somewhat of a 60 - 70's time-warp, yet in generally good order. The large dining room is quite stunning in a period manner. The food was very good and plentiful. Unfortunately, what was probably... More

Our room was terrible - cobwebs hanging off the coving all the way round the room, windows were filthy inside, outside and the window frame was black, had to ask for bath towels - this entailed three phone calls to try and get through to reception over 15 minutes and a 30 minute wait for them to be delivered, shower...

The bar remained open until the last guest retired to their rooms, and there was no pressure to leave. The staff move about with quiey assured confidence and are very knowledgeable about the...
