I've stayed at this hotel a few times now during my trips to Stranraer. It is well placed for the town centre and has a public garden nearby. The rooms are modern and comfortable as is the restaurant and bar areas. The food in the restaurant was first class with some nice touches consequently, you'd be advised to book a table at the same time you make the room booking as it gets very busy with local's and other visitors. The hotel has a function room attached to the rear bar and while it did have functions on last week-end they closed spot on time and any noise thereafter (outside) was short lived as the revellers departed. Breakfast was fine - the cooked stuff is great - but could do with a little more choice regarding cereals. The staff are friendly and very helpful - day and night. Parking can be tight at the front of the hotel if you are driving a large car but there is parking to the rear and in the side streets outside the hotel. Overall a nice place to stay for your holiday.

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
