Great location if catching a ferry. Rooms are clean, wifi was fine. Staff was outstanding. Only issue was could hear noise from other rooms and the pub and restaurant downstairs. The pub and restaurant are very, very good.

Went for family meal for hubby's birthday. Food was lovely and both Fillet Steaks on order cooked to perfection. Service was first class and very attentive. Massimo finished off my husbands night with a Margarita cocktail which went down a treat.

I was very relieved to find this hotel after previous poor experiences in Stranraer. Staff are lovely, rooms are clean, beds are comfy, and the food is perfect (helpings a bit big for me but that would be a big plus for many). My only concern is that by telling it how it is the hotel could be full up...

Visited the Craignelder Hotel for a meal on Saturday 3rd September 2016. My husband and I both had a starter and main. The food was to a very high standard and well presented. The only negative was that we couldn't fit in a dessert. Next time, I will forego the starter as, I really want to sample a dessert. All...

Myself and a few colleagues have stayed here three times now and each time we've been treated very well - above and beyond in fact. Massimo in the bar is great, the staff are great, beds are comfy and everything is spotless. I'm a very big fan, and recommend you visit soon.
