“not worth the cost”
Reviewed April 28, 2012

I would not recommend this place, as the rooms are very small, and cold. Staff were mostly friendly, but they were very loud in the morning when I was trying to sleep. Also, they actually knocked on my door, waking me up, at 8:30am when all I wanted to do was sleep. I'd suggest staying somewhere else.

Well this was booked and a blackberry at the last minute and the way to Stranraer from Glasgow.
Wasn't expecting very much as could not see pictures of hotel and we where desperate for a room as we had to catch a last minute ferry to Ireland the following morning.

BUT WOW this place is amazing nothing to much trouble for the staff food excellent room excellent what more could you want.

Would recommend this hotel to all who are traveling to Ireland on the stena line early morning ferry
