Arrived at 2230 on a Saturday Evening following my ferry trip from Belfast to Cairnryan. The Guest House was situated on the main (but quiet) road through Stranraer and had a large neon sign outside which made finding the guest house a breeze. On entering, I was very warmly greeted by Allan who showed me to my room. I had booked a single room but was very kindly upgraded to a generously spacious double at no extra cost.
The room was very tastefully decorated with modern art on the walls and had a great warmly feel to it. There were lots of little extras aside from the tea and coffee making facilities, for instance, bottled water, shoe polish, a mini mending kit and a mini deoderant which were all nice little touches alongside many more.
The shower was powerful and supplied a steady flow of hot water which was much appreciated following a long day in Belfast.
The bed was superb, exceptionally comfy mattress and four pillows supplied which made for a fantastic nights sleep.
In the morning I wandered downstairs for Breakfast in the dining room where I was welcomed by Elaine who gave me a table and offered me tea and toast whilst waiting for my cooked breakfast. A selection of cereals and fruit juices were also available for you to help yourself to. The food was very fresh, tasty and was of good quality unlike other B&B's where I have stayed who use the cheapest supplies available. I was left very satisfied and set for my long drive back home.
Checking out was easy, just handing the key to Allan on my way past the Dining Room.
Would highly recommend this Guest House to anyone requiring a room in the Stranraer vacinity. Very welcoming, top quality little place - 5 Stars!
