The reviews by others were so exceptionally good that we hardly believed them, but they are absolutely spot on. This place has everything that a small guest house should have. Very friendly and helpful hosts, superb breakfast in a lovely dining room, comfortable, clean, spacious rooms, and all the little touches that you would put into a place that you... More

The Rhins of Galloway is a great place to stay after taking the ferry to Cairnryan Scotland. The owners were very helpful and made wife and I very at home. The suite we stayed in was very clean and comfortable. It even had a small Kitchen if you are so inclined to do your own cooking. Well worth the stay.

The welcome by John was just the job after a very long day - made to feel at home very quickly. I was also upgraded to their suite which blew me away as I NEVER get upgrades and also it was great to be able to work and relax in a separate sitting room, not a bedroom. The furniture and... More

An excellent b and b plus . Handy for the cairnryan ferry. Beautifully furnished public rooms and bedrooms. A very welcoming host - made you feel you were staying in a private house rather than a b and b. Interesting history of the building which fascinated both me and my 90 year old dad and he happily went off to... More

Found this place just for a one night stay before catching ferry to Belfast, wish we had longer. Spotlessly clean, huge rooms lovely friendly staff especially John. Breakfast was fantastic, great choices and perfectly cooked. Bed was super comfy and cosy, would highly recommend Rhins of Galloway.

97/99 people cannot be wrong. This is a wonderful place to stay, run by friendly and welcoming people. I could write reams about this place but I won't, as less is more in this case. This B&B is: clean (to the nth degree), very comfortable and seriously, the cooked breakfast is enough for two people. If you were opening your... More

Stayed at The Rhins again recently on our way to Northern Ireland and as always we had a wonderful stay! Paul and John were as welcoming and hospitable as ever and the food and accommodation were top notch as always; just sorry it was only for one night. Looking forward to our next time and recommending highly to anyone looking... More

We were treated so graciously and made to feel so welcome by the owners that it seemed as if we were staying with family. Everything is decorated so tastefully and the rooms we had seemed more like suites with chandeliers, sofas, and fireplaces. The whole place sparkled it was so clean. The bathrooms were beautiful. The meals were made to... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Rhins of Galloway is perfectly located beside the A77 connecting Cairnryan and Stranraer, just 1 mile south of Cairnryan P&O ferry terminal and 2 miles south of the Stena Line Cairnryan ferry terminal. This special and unique historic building is set in lawned gardens overlooking Loch Ryan. The fact that neither a licensed bar nor evening meals are offered defines the building as a Guest House rather than a Hotel. ... more   less
