To mark our second wedding anniversary and the news that finally some good weather was on the way I trawled the depths of Trip Advisor to find a nice hotel in Southern Scotland - somewhere we'd never been. My first find was the Corsewall Lighthouse near Stranraer, but the reviews did it no favours so I looked at the top of the list - I'm so glad I did.
The Hunters Quay lovely period home, spotlessly clean and wonderfully furnished with grand old style furniture and little trinkets here and there. Our room was huge, with grand high ceilings, decorative plaster work and big comfy sofa by picture window overlooking the Firth of Clyde. The view was so great, we never shut the curtains all night - instead choosing to watch the boats go by. Daybreak was spectacular.
We chose to eat at the hotel and supper from the table d'hot menu was delicious and of fairly local theme. Christine and Graham are great hosts and eating at the hotel was more like being at friends for a social dinner rather than a formal meal. Our glasses never emptied and our courses arrived and departed with seamless efficiency. Breakfast the following morning was equally as impressive - freshly prepared, quality produce from all over Scotland, we finished the lot.
All in all an excellent hotel, great rooms, soooo clean, brilliant hosts and very relaxing. Highly recommended.
