With an early Monday morning ferry journey to Ireland, I needed to stay near to the ferry port the night before. I use an agency to book through work. To be honest, I wasn't given a great deal of choice for the area. Rhins of Galloway was the only choice that was within price policy. I didn't look at the... More

The owners' welcome is bright and warm; the breakfast is extremely good; our room was very well-equipped. The dinner recommendation was spot-on. If you're taking a Cairnryan ferry, it's a few minutes away. Unreserved praise for Rhins of Galloway as a cut above.

On a touring holiday of Scotland we booked just the one night at Rhins of Galloway as it was on route. What a wonderful guesthouse, had we known how great this place was we would have planned to stay longer. The hosts John and Paul make you very welcome and nothing seems too much trouble for them but then they... More

I used Trip Advisor to look for some accommodation for our first trip to Scotland. The first was fully booked and the second was the Rhins of Galloway. So glad first accommodation was full. We have just had four nights stay in a place where we could not find a single thing wrong. Paul & John run a great family... More

From the outside this place is really pretty and inviting, it's not until you get inside that you see the real beauty, exquisite furniture and pictures everywhere. Only booked the Churchill suite for 1 night but so wish we had been staying here longer. Plenty of space, well kitted out with everything you need. Fantastic friendly welcome from the host... More

We arrived late and had to leave early, our welcome was friendly and the rooms were lovely. Our packed breakfast was great and left in coolers for us overnight. Would defiantly come back and stay longer.

I reviewed on another site but my stay was so perfect that I had to write a second. Staff extremely helpful and welcoming but the attention to detail in the room was outstanding. Immaculately clean and all the little extras are perfect. I stayed in a single room and it was far beyond my expectations. The en suite was stunning... More

We stayed at this lovely guest house twice. it's in a lovely location and just minutes away from the Ferry Terminals. Each time we arrived we received a very warm welcome from the owners. On our first visit we got a free upgrade to a suite which was lovely. The second visit we had a delightful room which was very... More

We spend one night at this hotel before going to Belfast. The room was really nice and had everything you could wish such as nice big bed, tv, robes, slippers etc. The staff were really friendly and very helpful. Breakfast was complete and really nice with a wide selection.

To catch an early ferry to Northern Ireland, we spent a night in Cairnryan, Scotland. This B&B was not cheap, but provided us with a lovely experience. It is located just outside the small town of Cairnryan and just across the street from a gorgeous beach. We had dinner in the town just a couple of miles down the street,... 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
