“Amazing B&B”
Reviewed May 12, 2013

Just back from a fantastic night to staying at the Lakeview. My husband and I were in Stranraer for a wedding, we couldn't have asked for a better place to stay. We were warmly welcomed on our arrival even though we were a little earlier than expected. Our room was very nicely decorated, full of home comforts, beds were very comfy, plenty of tea, coffee and biscuits - we were even shown where extras were kept if we required any more :). Excellent guest information pack provided. No request was out of reach - Elaine could not have been more attentive. Bathroom was newly decorated and stocked with essential toiletries. Room faced onto lovely garden area. Great choice for breakfast - would highly recommend the cooked breakfast was very tasty. Was very close to main street with all amenities and just across from a lovely park.Very reasonable price, much nicer than many hotels we have stayed in which have cost more. Would definitely stay again!

This is how a B&B should be. Very warm and friendly welcome. Excellent room, comfortable bed with the decor and furniture that bit more than the norm. The breakfast was good and very well presented with a large choice. I would highly recommended this B&B It’s better than some 4 star hotels I’ve been in.

While traveling through Ireland and Scotland, my friend and I stayed at a lot of B&B's. The Lakeview Guesthouse is Stranraer was definitely one of our favorites! Elaine, the hostess was so warm and inviting, we immediately felt at home.
Our room was nicely decorated and huge! It had a full size bed along with two twin beds. We were very pleased that the room had a full bathroom, a coffee maker & coffee, bottled water, snacks, a hair dryer, and a giant flat screen TV that hung on the wall.
The view from our window was amazing! We were right on the water and could see the whole coast-line. Breathtaking!
I really liked how Elaine gave us options as to what we would like for breakfast. I am a relatively picky eater, so that was great for me. The food was great and Elaine was very kind to us as we sat and ate breakfast. She even called us a cab that came right away.
I highly recommend the Lakeview Guesthouse. It was clean, comfortable, and very reasonably priced.

I've stayed at Lakeview many many times over the last 12 months and each time it has been a positive experience. Elaine & Alan do all they can to make you feel welcome and comfortable, and really do go that extra mile to ensure your experience is perfect. I highly recommended this guesthouse and everything about it.

I stayed here in June 2012 when my mum carried the Olympic Torch. The rooms were excellent - highly furbished with excellent quality items. There was even mineral water and pillow chocolate in there :)

Breakfast was well-prepared by the excellent and friendly staff. You've got a good choice of food in there.

Would highly recommend to anyone heading to/through Stranraer.

Absolutely loved this B&B! One of my most favourite B&B's I've ever been to. The hosts were delightful, the rooms decorated to perfection and the beds blissfully comfortable. The external gardens were a delight to look out on as well. Great proximity to the ferry terminal and the local shops, as well as the awesome little fun fair across the road. The breakfast room was in a great position looking out on the main street and the traditional Scottish breakfast was top notch. It's always nice to have a few varied choices for breakfast as well, which was on offer at Lakeview. More 4/5 star accommodation in my opinion rather than it's humble 3 star rating. I highly recommend this B&B - you won't be disappointed.
