Fernlea guest house is perfect. The house is charming, pleasantly furnished and decorated. Our host Lynn is a nice, welcomming and helpfull person. The room we booked was nice and comfortable : very good bed, spacious bathroom. All the house is more than clean. And the scottish breakfast was generous and delicious.

My partner and I stopped over on our way to Ireland. Couldn't have found a more clean, well presented and welcoming place to lay our heads before a few days biking. Our room has a bathroom fit for 5 star, huge double shower in a spacious en suite. Our room large and views over the garden were good. We could... More

Lynn and Kenny very welcoming and hospitable hosts; went out of their way to provide delicious vegetarian cooked breakfasts. A very clean, warm and cosy B&B within easy walking of town centre. We would certainly hope to stay again. A very restful break; thank you!

A warm welcome from Lynn and Kenny, a bright, clean and comfortable room and a marvellous breakfast. Within walking distance of town and with off Street parking it was also convenient. In the words of Arnie... "I'll be back" - Thoroughly recommended.

It's been a while since we stayed at the Fernlea and I'm delighted to report that it remains as friendly and comfortable as our previous visits. Excellent welcome, a comfortable clean room and a cracking breakfast everyday made for a memorable stay. A great base to explore the area with the Ryan centre adjacent and the town centre a flat...

This hotel was absolutely amazing. Everything was immaculate. Nothing was too much trouble. Would recommend this establishment to anyone. The only negative if there was one was that it was a bit out of the way, but this should not prevent anyone going there. Would give this hotel 9 out of 5.

Fernlea is located on Lewis Street, one of the main roads running south from the town centre. Though Stranraer itself is rather run-down, and badly needs a major effort to develop new facilities for visitors, Fernlea is a bright spot which deservedly earns a high approval rating. WIth an awesome breakfast menu, tidy well-appointed and spacious rooms, secure parking at... More

We stayed for one night here before boarding the ferry to Belfast. What a fantastic stay it was. Our room, although small, had every amenity and was very comfortable. The modern shower room was immaculate - I don't think it had been used before, it looked brand new. Never seen one so clean!!! Breakfast was a delight and the hosts... More

Actually it was more than home from home because Lynn makes the best porridge ever! We were given a very warm welcome when we arrived. Lynn showed us to our room (no 5) which was delightful. Beautifully decorated and comfortable with a large en suite. All the extras in the bathroom and the hospitality tray made our 4 day stay... More
