Gave notice that we were arriving by bicycle, however, no covered area for bikes. Email asking advice was not replied to. Room clean and comfortable. Breakfast excellent with areally good selection of fresh fruit. There's not a lot in Cairnryan, next time I think we'll go on to Stranraer

A lovely B&B, easy to find, very comfy, very friendly proprietor, excellent breakfast, puts hotel buffet breakfast to shame. Would definitely return here, spotless room, Sky TV, wifi and ideal for the ferries. The real treat was a fresh cooked rhubarb and yoghurt starter and haggis with your cooked breakfast, yum yum!

To be honest I had read the reviews on this hotel only a fe days before my stay. I was dreading the stay based on the poor review someone else had just given relating to 24th July. However was I surprised and thankful !!!!! The B and B was very close to the P&O ferry terminal. We had a warm... More

This B&B is about as close as it gets for the P&O ferry. On arrival we received a lovely warm welcome and were shown to our room. We had the smallest room available ( a double) and this may not be suitable to a less mobile couple as it is slightly tight around the far side of the bed. However... More

Another great night's sleep! My husband and I always stay at the Homestead when catching the ferry to Ireland. The Homestead must be at the top of the list when selecting the best B & B. Very clean and comfortable rooms and house. You would travel the world to match Margaret's hospitality. She will do anything she can to make... More

Excellent family-run B&B, you can clearly see great pride is taken in the cleanliness, service and quality of food served. Margaret is a very welcoming host and treated us as if we're part of the family and she couldn't do enough for us. We had travelled overnight from South Cerney and parked outside until check-in time but Margaret came and... More

Credit where credit is due. I travelled up from Bristol and got a lovely reception.This B&B is truly excellent, spotless rooms and beds, excellent breakfast, lovely friendly host (Margaret) and great value for money. You honestly could not ask for anything more, I had that lovely feeling of being fully satisfied with the service I received when I left the... More

Spent two nights on our way to and from Ireland. The rooms were clean and comfortable. Margaret was a very kind host and we had a delicious cooked breakfast which was prepared exactly as we wanted it. Margaret takes great pride in her establishment and ensures that you are happy. On our return journey she offered us the larger room... More
