“Better Late Than Never”
Reviewed 28 September 2008

I've only just joined Trip Advisor so this review is exactly a year late. However I wanted to comment on our two stays at the Rhins of Galloway, if only to refute the malicious entry at the foot of the page.

We very much enjoyed our stays to and from our holiday in Ireland. At only a mile from the P&O ferry terminal I can't imagine bothering to look for anywhere else, should we return to the area.

From the outside you could be forgiven for thinking the Rhins is a well-kept village hall and it has certainly known a variety of uses. None could have been as sumptuous and comfortable as the present one. The furnishings and fittings of the rooms and public areas would put many a 4 star hotel to shame.

Paul's front-of-house skills and John's breakfasts leave nothing to be desired and there is close attention to every detail. The friendly attentive service left us completely satisfied, something that happens only rarely. We wish them every success.

This was our second visit to the Rhins. We stayed in the holiday flat this time which was exactly what we needed, Ideal for a family of four. Only wished we were staying for more than one night. The welcome and service from the chaps was excellent as always. Nothing too much trouble. Breakfast was superb. Would thoroughly reccommend to anybody. Will be back again next year. Kathy Wilson

John & Paul couln't be more helpful, they were so kind and considerate. The accommodation was excellent ,the flat was just superb, it is a great place for a romantic stay or with a group of freinds and family, It's not so good for disabled access but I am sure in time it will be, as john and paul have only been there 4 years. The big hall they have would be great for weddings once they convert it as it is still under construction. The guest rooms which my family stayed where very clean, and needs were more than met. It's a good place for pets too, as we are going back in Oct 08 as it was that good and we are taking our dogs with us and staying in the flat. The breakfasts are just excellent ! I would just go for that alone. This accommodation is HIGHLY Recommended.

Well, after a problem with road signs ( which the owners cannot be held responsible for) we arrived to a very warm welcome.

Parking was plentiful although car park very bumpy, so a little care needs to be taken with low bodied cars.

What a wonderful property and very welcoming hosts.

Our room was lovely, everything was immaculate, bathroom was pristine and fluffy pillows on the beds. Lots of little touches such as complimentary water at bedside and proper kettles.

There was a lounge if we wanted to use it, with tv, books, etc. We were told that we could have drinks served to us in there if we decided not to stay in our room. Our room was so lovely we had no need to move!

We could not have had better and this property is deserving of a high rating. Breakfast was lovely, hot, plenty of choice and freshly cooked, servred with a smile and in a lovely breakfast room.

High attention has been paid to detail and this is very apparent when looking around. Beautiful furniture, comfort and cosyness seems order of the day.

This is a great location for the ferry terminals as it is just outside Stranraer with great views and is in a quiet location.

The owners were more than willing to offer a first class service and were happy to do whatever they could to make our stay more comfortable.

A business takes time to establish and a property takes time, love and money to renovate and it is clear to see how this property is being lovingly restored by two very capable people.
I cannot recommend this place highly enough.

Stay for yourselves and see first hand.

Stayed at the hotel / B&B as had early ferry to Ireland. Although the place has a slight holiday camp feel to it, the rooms have been renovated to hotel standard, decent en-suite, TV. The front desk chap was very helpful. Excellent rates £35. If you need satellite TV, check which rooms / how to access. Snacks and light meals are provided.
