Arrived late and left early (arrived 6pm left 6.30 am).!! Was catching the 7:30 ferry from Cairnryan so didn't spend too long here but the room was spotless and very comfortable. 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

Stayed there for one night to attend a function in town. Everything was first class. Spotlessly clean, comfy beds and good quality breakfast, eggs just the way I like them! Hosts Elaine and Alan were great and looked after us above and beyond normal levels. I can recommend to all visitors, you will not be disappointed. Mike and Shelley.

Very welcoming hosts. Nice room although small and with no chairs. Bathroom also small but very clean. Good wifi. A comfortable stopover on our trip home from Northern Ireland. Good breakfast. Would recommend this B&B in Stranraer.

Very surprised at this place for many reasons. The place was spotlessly clean, tastefully decorated, warm and friendly. The owner greeted us warmly, showed us our room and gave us information about the house, breakfast and door keys. He also give us a couple of ideas as well as directions to local food and drink. The bedroom was cosy but... More

Possibly one of the best B&B's I've ever had the pleasure of staying in - the rooms are well fitted out with quality fixtures and fixings, and the bathroom and shower were lovely. We were taking a day trip to Belfast, so we dropped by early in the morning and were given our room keys at 10am so we could... More

We were travelling from Haddington to Stranraer to catch the ferry to Belfast. Elaine was especially helpful - when I first enquired about a B&B and told her we were catching a ferry she immediately wrote back supplying the ferry link for Belfast. Alan and Elaine picked us up at the train station and then the next day dropped us... More

We stayed at Lakeview Guesthouse as we were traveling from Yorkshire to Cain Ryan to catch a ferry to Ireland. I chose the guest house as it had family rooms and there were 2 adults and 2 children in our party, as well as meeting up with family who were also staying at the guesthouse. The welcome was great, Elaine... More
