I stopped off here during a weekend away on my motorbike. When I arrived, the garage was opened immediately for me to store my bike, which was great. The single room I had was very clean, had a VERY comfortable bed, decent-sized en-suite, TV, tea and coffee etc and more than adequate room for a single biker with hard motorcycle... More

We have stayed with Gayle and her husband at least 5 or 6 times now - usually to catch a ferry the following day, and last July we stayed 4 nights for a holiday in the area. It is quiet, very comfortable, very clean - boh upstairs and downstairs. The breakfast is excellent with a good choice of cereals, fruit,... More

Warm welcome, rooms clean and comfortable, not noisy at all - indeed the town is not the most active I have ever been in! Had to catch the morning ferry so missed what Im sure was a good breakfast.Realistic value too. Tip for other visitors, park behind the house up the alleyway to the left of the property.

Superb breakfast, lovely old house, former convent, rooms slightly small and a little dated, but very clean and comfy. Plenty of information for tourists, close to ferry for Ireland and a short drive to beaches. Would recommend to all.

Hi Thanks for your review and your positive comments. I believe you stayed in our single room which is slightly on the small side. Our doubles and twin rooms are generally larger than average. More

Just like they used to be. Traditional old Fashioned BB with high ceilings and quirky en suites. Had 2 rooms, downstairs twin especially useful for disabled access. Owners very helpful, not too pushy after a long drive. Although on main road so rooms at front little noisy till after about 11 p.m. (opposite a leisure centre of sorts). Excellent level... More

Stayed here as my usual stop over was fully booked. Room was ok if a little tired, location was within walking distance of a very good pub/restaurant. As I was away early, before breakfast, I asked for a packed breakfast. Very disappointing, I would have preferd if they had said no and knocked the price of breakfast off my bill.... More

I'm sorry but there seems to have been a misunderstanding or miscommunication here. For early departures we normally offer an early self service breakfast or a reduced room only rate. On this occasion I got the impression that you preferred a packed breakfast as this is what you specifically asked for. It was requested at very short notice and you... More

If your looking for a Guest house to stay in when you get on or off the ferry at Cairnryan this is the one. Friendly and warm welcome, very clean and comfortable rooms and excellent breakfast, would definitely stay there again.

Stayed here for the one night as I had a college course the next morning. Pleasant check in . Nice room , clean & warm. Quiet apart from the fan in the bathroom . Decent breakfast & nice coffee . Carpark out the back . All in all a pleasant stay with a nice couple running the place.

The accommodation is excellent and very homely. The descriptions were absolutely accurate, leaving no nasty surprises for my mother, who does have mobility problems. She thoroughly enjoyed her stay.
