The Lakeview seemingly being one to choose according to reviews so we did just that. We were welcomed with smiles and genuine interest, our room was excellent, large and roomy, very clean...

We stayed overnight before catching the ferry to Belfast. Unable to book two previous B&B's we chose Lakeview Guest House. Very friendly and helpful owners, ideally situated with view over Loch Ryan parking either in front of the property or across the road in a free public car park. The rooms are clean and tidy, furnished to a high standard....

We stayed overnight before catching ferry to Ireland. Elaine was a very welcoming and friendly host, and we had a very enjoyable stay at Lakeview. Right on the front with views across the park, and close to town. Would stay here again no problems.

A great little place, with friendly owners and very welcoming service. I have stayed in Stranraer a lot now and this place has now gone top of my list of places to stop for work. Breakfast was excellent, tea coffee and whisky in the room is a nice touch and the bed is comfortable - everything you need.

Ok. So I stayed in a single room on the journey from Belfast to Northampton. Arrived off the late ferry to a beautifully clean room with everything you need : water , tea and coffee, hair dryer and toiletries. For a very very reasonable price. Just keep in touch with Elaine on your journey and you will be very well...
