“Great location for ferry”
Reviewed 10 December 2012

We stayed for 1 night, as we were booked on the 7.30am ferry. The guesthouse is spotless. Margaret was a very good host. As we were leaving earlier she made us a lovely packed lunch for the trip. The location is ideal to the ferry port. Unfortunately we were awoken at 12.40am with some football supporters looking for accommodation. They were quickly ushered away. This was out with the control of the owners and she apologised in the morning. This however would not stop us from staying again.

I cant fault this place at all. Its absolutely spotless, nothing is too much trouble for owners, breakfast is no trouble, fresh fruit offered and everything fresh.
I honestly cant find fault, and for this reason i have just booked my third visit.
Would highly recommend.

Room Tip: All rooms look great. I must say that although just across from the ferry terminal, and on quite a...

We stayed at the Homestead Guest house the night before sailing to Belfast, June 30th.
There was 3 couples, Margaret made us feel very welcome, providing a hearty home cooked dinner when we arrived. The rooms are comfortable, well equiped with all the home comforts.
We had an early start the following morning, so traditional Breakfast was out, but Margaret provided us all with a selection of Hot rolls, Tea or Coffee.
I would definately recommend this property to any one, and we will definately stay next time we are in Cairnryan.

Stayed the night before catching the ferry to Belfast. Rooms with ensuite and facilities excellent. Margaret is a friendly host willing to do anything. Breakfast pack prepared and ready for us to collect at 6.15 for the early ferry. Great location close to the ferry terminal. Book without hesitation.

Stayed for one night as we had just come off a late boat. Rooms are so tastefully decorated and very inviting. We had a triple room and although en-suite was quite small everything was well catered for. Breakfast next morning was first class. Quality and quantity could not be improved on. A fantastic stop over and highly recommended.

Stayed one night for Belfast Ferry. Rooms excellent. Great hosts, could not do enough to please. Very kind and genuine hosts. There is a shop next door which is also excellent and the staff there are also very customer orientated. If your thinking of booking, book without any worries.

Room Tip: Two front rooms are a little larger but all rooms good

Stayed here the night before our Cairnryan to Belfast sailing. Friendly, helpful owner Margaret. Rooms very comfortable, facilities excellent. As we had to leave before breakfast, Margaret made us packed lunches in their place.
