I stayed here for one night and found the hotel quiet ,comfortable beds and a welcoming reception, the breakfast was one of the best I've had. My room was en suite and at the back of the hotel so very quiet, I would think the front of the hotel would suffer from road noise. It is about 2 miles from...

I spend a lot of time in hotels and B&B's and very occasionally you stay somewhere where the experience couldn't be faulted. The chaps running the place have done everything they can to make it a really nice place to stay - from the decor to the room layout and cleanliness. Breakfast was nicely prepared and very nice - one...

Ideally located close to the ferry terminals in Cairnryan this roadside guest house belies its exterior views. The corrugated sheeting gives way to tasteful furnishings, antiques and gold plated cutlery. The place is warm and comfortable and the owners go out of their way to be welcoming. Breakfast is superb and overall the general attention to detail is outstanding. Definitely...

We stayed here at end of September for 1 night prior to catching ferry. Both of the proprietors couldn't have been more helpful and charming. We needed help with bags due to disability and they were straight there to help. They rang to get us a restaurant booking for the evening. Our double room was totally clean and comfortable and...

I had to stay here as my ferry from Cairnryan had been cancelled. The owner was very very helpful, giving me a suite and charging me a single rate. The room was fabulous, bedroom, open plan lounge, excellent furniture and lots of coffee, tea and drinking chocolate. He made me a take away breakfast as I was leaving at 6am...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Rhins of Galloway is perfectly located beside the A77 connecting Cairnryan and Stranraer, just 1 mile south of Cairnryan P&O ferry terminal and 2 miles south of the Stena Line Cairnryan ferry terminal. This special and unique historic building is set in lawned gardens overlooking Loch Ryan. The fact that neither a licensed bar nor evening meals are offered defines the building as a Guest House rather than a Hotel. ... more   less
