I stayed two nights in July whilst visiting family in Stranraer. I was made most welcome after a very exhausting trip and everything about the guesthouse was just perfect. Alan and Elaine and superb hosts, the rooms are well appointed and the powerful shower a most welcome reviver for a tired traveller. The breakfast, served in a bright well lit... More

We stayed here before getting the 7.30am ferry to Belfast. We had the family room on the top floor of the house. It had been a hot day and so the room was absolutely roasting when we arrived in the evening. The window latch was broken so the window could either be closed tight, or open fully - ie swinging...

Elaine and Alan are wonderful hosts! We had a small double with good ventilation,a roomy en-suite, and great food at breakfast. Our,hosts went out of their way to help us in little -- and big -- ways. The Lake View gets high marks for being clean, comfortable, and quiet (our room was on the second floor away,from the street). It's... More

We stayed at the Lakeview Guest House for one night. We were travelling the next morning to Ireland on the Ferry and it was in an ideal location, must about five minutes along the road from the ferry port. We had a double room and a single room. The Guesthouse is spotlessly clean and well furnished. The rooms were lovely... More

Bathroom was spacious and very clean. Missed breakfast due to the early start but was given a packed meal to take with me which was much appreciated. Host very... More

Usually stay in hotels but being near Xmas thought I would steer clear of any party nights. Lakeview was recommended and I wasn't disappointed. Very clean, well decorated comfortable room. No seat to sit and do some work at so gave me an excuse to keep it short. Good references by owner on where to go for an evening meal.... More
