Our room and bathroom were very clean and neat. Breakfast was wonderful. The hostess was an extremely kind person! We loved the town of Stranraer and would definitely return to this bed and breakfast!

  • Liked — closeness to the town and ferry departure
  • Disliked — bathroom was very small

If you need a place to stay where you will have a lovely room, nice place to be in, warm welcome and very good breakfast then you will find it all at Lakeview Guesthouse. Elaine and Alan are great hosts. We found this place when going to Ireland on the ferry and were so pleased we had to write a review.

Next time we will stay a couple of nights and enjoy the view and the surrounding area more - and there will be a next time!

The Lakeview Guesthouse is all any accommodation should be; friendly and helpful owners, sparkling clean, satisfying breakfast, convenient location and extremely well priced.

I stayed there for only one night as I had to travel on the next day but I would have no hesitation in recommending the Lakeview for a short or long stay.

An added bonus is the complementary lift to and from the boat or train......What more do you need!!

Thanks to Alan and Elaine for a wonderful stay. This B&B is highly recommended to everyone staying in the Stranraer area or passing through, we found the accommodation to be to a high standard and was very clean. A good choice of food for breakfast with the full cooked breakfast highly recommended if not for the waist line.

The reveiws on this B & B are spot on. We got a very friendly welcome when we arrived and made to feel at home. We were on the top floor, and had a family room sleeping three and a single room. Total cost £75. The rooms shared a toilet and shower, which although quite small was very clean. Each room also had tea coffee and biscuits. Breakfast was plentiful and very enjoyable.

We stayed in Stranraer for 2 nights and chose this Guesthouse through a recommendation from a friend - Well they were right! We had a wonderful stay in this accommodation its clean, bright and comfortable and the view from our bedroom was great, the owners are very helpful and assisted us with all our needs during our stay! I look forward to staying again on our next trip in the summer. Book early to avoid disappointment , its very popular with new and old guests!
