Too many good points to list.


Lynn & Derek (Bedfordshire)

This is without doubt the best B&B we have ever stayed at. We cannot fault anything. The accommodation is of the highest standard & tastefully decorated, modern and spotlessly clean. The owners, Paul & John are welcoming and extremely friendly, helpful and informative. An excellent breakfast and comfortable bed. The attention to detail says a great deal about the thought and consideration invested in this not to be missed B&B, Well done John and Paul!

Simply the best!

The apartment was ideal for us with a  young family. being able to put the boys to bed and sit and relax was great. The beds are really comfortable. All the complimentaries are very impressive and make life a little easier. Breakfast was fab.

Apartment would benefit from folding table & chairs for longer stays and maybe a highchair. Recycling facilities would also be useful.

Staying in this superbly appointed Guest House is more like staying in a 3 star hotel. Furnishings and equipment are of a  high quality and the taste cannot be faulted. Attention given to guests and their needs is personal, caring and totally professional.


Matthew Graham

There's nothing better than a warm and friendly welcome after a 5 hour drive, or so I thought. This was even better, a warm welcome, stunning room and very comfy bed have re-invigorated me. They say that it's all in the detail, and there is not even the tiniest detail that has been overlooked. It's like a pot of gold at the end of a rainbow.

Angie Gabbatt

This was my first visit to Stranraer and after my partners firm booking our accommodation, I did not know what to expect for one night.

My first impression was 'what a beautiful building', inside it was a mixture of 'Location, Location, Location' and on further inspection 'Grand Designs'.

The hotel is complete for guests to enjoy, welcome from hosts, friendly & warm, food fabulous.

I wish you well in this venture and will return with a trip to Ireland on my next visit.

Cannot wait to see the 'hall' finished.

Great reading in the room on history.

Superb, comfortable, clean accommodation, at reasonable price.

Genial host.

A pleasure to recommend this B&B to future guests.

Better bring the Mrs next time !!!



After misinterpreting the directions, arrived to a very warm welcome, good parking (if a bit bumpy & uneven), lovely room, pristine, beautiful bathroom and no shortage of anything. It seemed nothing was too much trouble.

Lovely freshly cooked breakfast. Only grumble (and we had to search for one) is the bed has supports underneath and so has made mattress like a small mound and so not a very good nights sleep. However this can soon be rectified and would stay here again.

Overall, very comfortable, well presented and thought out and welcoming stop.

Thank you.


Rose Fahy


Comfortable, warm, welcoming  & good food & service.

Very friendly. Room was exceptionally clean & quiet. Very comfy bed & great overall facilities & value for money. Will come back again with the family rather than just on business.

p.s. Breakfast was fantastic as well !


Stephen Baker, Runcorn

As a business user who usually uses travel inns and not B&B's, I was pleasantly surprised. The pics on the web don't do it justice.

Lovely surroundings and well kept garden area. reception is small but very clean & tidy and well maintained (didn't even see a chipped skirting board). Everything looks newly renovated. This continues in the bedroom. My single room was well sized and modern with Sky & LCD TV.

Could benefit from wireless internet and bar/restaurant on site as business user.

Definitely would use again & recommend to others.


Ron Marchbank

Great value.

Friendly reception.

All in all, got to be recommended.


Chris Hugill

This is a 5 star B&B.

Our host was very attentive while respecting our independence and privacy.

The building has been tastefully refurbished with great attention to detail. It has a view of a ridge and fields to the rear and of the sea to the front.

We highly recommend Rhins of Galloway as a base to explore this unspoilt area.

A little gem !

Smashing place, good hospitality!

Will be back.

One thing - maybe a hook on the bathroom door, to hang clothes.


Mary & Bryan Williams

Very comfortable accommodation and we were looked after well.


S. Dance

I could not have had a more relaxing stay. The welcome was very friendly and I was looked after extremely well throughout my stay.

I will recommend the Rhins to all my friends and will certainly be returning.

If you read the previous guest reviews and wonder if it can be this good, believe it!

The finish and comfort are fabulous and the hospitality offered by the owners adds the final gloss to the whole experience.

Nice place, very clean, a good sleep.

I think some of the staff from the "Lodge" type hotels should look how it should be done.

As though it was just completed yesterday.

Fantastic place.

This will be our residence of choice from now on. J


Lesley Magee

We had a great time, we only wish we could have stayed for longer. We would love to come back and would recommend it to anyone. It was fantastic to be able to bring our dog Diesel rather than leaving him at home.

This is one of the best B&Bs we have stayed in on our trip.

Very friendly & helpful. The rooms were faultless. We would highly recommend the Rhins to anyone.



We have enjoyed our stay tremendously.

Such comfort and service - and the food !!

Will certainly recommend you to anyone coming this way & hope to be back.


John & Donna Smith

Stayed in lots of B&Bs around GB. The Rhins of Galloway has to be the best for service, hospitality and cleanliness.

If you want somewhere to stay, this is the place.


Kevin & Gillian Galloway

Once again, a wonderful stay.

Many many thanks.


Elaine & William Gilchrist

Very comfortable stay on the return leg of our journey.

Appreciated being greeted by Paul, despite our arrival being at 11.00 pm!

(love the small touches, e.g. scissors on the table to aid opening the sachets of sauce - simple, but makes all the difference - demonstrates real empathy for the weary traveller!). Thanks loads.


Elaine & William Gilchrist

Beautifully clean, well furnished accommodation in a peaceful, picturesque location. Paul was waiting to greet us on arrival and explained the layout, even suggesting a good quality 'eaterie' close by for dinner. Discreet, welcoming, and somewhere we would recommend for a stay if you're travelling in this area.


Marion Hunt & Jo Norris

Made very welcome and the food out of this world.

Many thanks again.


John & Tessa Mills

Excellent - immaculate accommodation. Made to feel very welcome. Thank you !


Garry & Christine Dunbar (Hull)

I would just like to say what excellent service & accommodation is provided here at the Rhins of Galloway.

Ketie and André Bouthan, Holland

However we only stayed for one night, we enjoyed it very much. Your facility is very comfortable and complete.

Jill and Mavis

Very welcoming!

Rooms with everything you could possibly need.

Wonderful breakfast and a glorious setting.


Iona MacRitchie / Douglas Beck

Wow! This is the nicest B&B we've stayed in for quite some time. We wished we could stay longer.

I stay in around 80 B&B's, guest houses or hotels each year, and it's really unfortunate that you come to expect mediocre service and quality. You guys have got it just right - I honestly think that this is one of the best B&B's I have ever stayed in. Very comfortable, a wonderful welcome, a great laid-back attitude and very reasonable prices.

Do you fancy opening more places in other parts of Scotland?


Tricia Anderson - East Lothian

Excellent accommodation.

Excellent food.

And the most beautiful lounge to relax in.

Hope to visit again.

Fantastic! We couldn't have been looked after better. It's a lovely place run by nice friendly and helpful people. I would definitely come back again when in the area.

This place is stunning!

The owners have obviously put a lot of thought & love into the building - every detail is high quality from the furnishings & fittings to customer service & views!!

Thank you for a delightful & warm stay - I'll definitely be coming back with friends for a longer visit. 5 star & more!!


Joanna Dunbar

Woke up to a beautiful view at the back with the rising sun stretching over the moors. The view at the front towards the sea is just as justified. It really is beautiful here. the staff are incredibly warm & welcoming, the rooms extremely comfortable and relaxing.  And all this whilst staying here when they have plans for more refurbishment. If there was a grade of 5 star.... I'd award six. Many thanks.

All one could ask for away from home. Would recommend highly.

Warm friendly welcome, lovely clean room and an excellent breakfast.

Top marks for them.


Peter & Maria Guest - Suffolk

Fabulous, very clean accommodation. Higher standards than some hotels we've stayed in. Friendly welcome - excellent food.

Would say accommodation more hotel than B&B.


G.W. Fosberry

We enjoyed our stay with you.

We found owners to be very helpful and rooms are very clean & tidy. Good choice of breakfast.


Stuart & Carol Dudill (S. Yorkshire)

Once again, a lovely welcome from two warm and friendly people, and with only a small step to negotiate, the flat is ideal for anyone with mobility problems.

The well-equipped kitchen, lounge double bedroom and the twin room are immaculate, the bathroom is huge with all the facilities needed for a wheelchair to move around with ease.

Our large delicious evening meal and breakfast were served in the flat, and are great value for money.

Rhins of Galloway is ideally situated for the Irish ferry at Cairnryan, and Stranraer ferry is only a short distance away.

I think it is fairly obvious that "we shall be back"!

Very good B&B

Rooms very homely. Friendly staff and good value too!

Would certainly come back.


Graham Hewes

A superb B&B with exceptional high standards for accommodation & service. I would recommend to anyone.

Thank you.


Kathleen Timlin

Very high standard of accommodation, beds comfortable, good breakfast, spotlessly clean, what more could you ask?


Tracey Ince

Very clean & tidy. Man very polite & helpful on front desk. Plenty of tea and coffee. Great!!!

Only bad point - bed slopes from middle to side. Think middle legs are too tall. Had to put pillow under mattress to stop falling out. Lay on it and see.


Mary Thomas

I brought my mother here for a 3 day break. We have both had a great time, everything was 1st class from food to accommodation and the owners could not do enough for us & we loved their friendly banter. Will definitely be back - FAB.

Tracey Hedley & family, South Shields, Tyne & Wear.

I found the Rhins of Galloway ideal for myself and family. Nice and close to the ferry terminal, yet beautiful country scenery all around. Nice and clean, lovely modern rooms. Ideal touring base for the surrounding area. The food was also very nice.


Jim Josey


This was the best B&B/Hotel I've stayed at in many years of staying at B&Bs/Hotels (the breakfast is exceptional).

Rhins should be anyones 1st choice for accommodation within a 20 mile radius!! Everything about the place is 'right'.

Good luck for the future.

Les McIver

Having been a 'self-caterer' for more years than I care to remember (more than 60), I have experienced many changes and enhanced standards but I can honestly say that none have bettered the Rhins of Galloway.

The number of things that are normally subject to an extra charge but are included in the basic price and the thoughtful little extras make a stay here exceptionally pleasing and comfortable.


Brian Page

An absolute delight. Good friendly service, superb food and excellent accommodation.

The standards are superior to many 'so-called' first class hotels.


Mr & Mrs A&J Richardson, Sunderland

First impression of walking into the building was the friendly owner who was there to greet us on arrival. He showed both my husband & myself around the communal areas and the "developing bar room" is very impressive. Our room was clean and was cleanly decorated to give a fresh and "airy" feeling. Bed was very comfortable. It had all the hallmarks of a 3 star hotel. Well done!


Joyce & David Dutton

Our fifth visit and yet again, the welcome and excellent accommodation along with our choice of evening meals - superb! We'd better book our next visit now while you've got a spare room or two!

Had a wonderful visit from start to finish. The room was lovely and the gentlemen running Rhins of Galloway were so welcoming and helpful. I would recommend a stay here to anyone.

A very nice hotel with comfortable beds. The dogs are very sweet. All the food was very tasty. The owners are helpful and very funny.

I would like to say thank you very much for my present, the fridge.

We will return very soon.

If you are in the area as a tourist, on business or catching the ferry, this is definitely the place to stay. The location is excellent, and the accommodation spacious, allowing guests to 'wander around'. I loved the subtle decor, fabulous bathrooms, stylish lounge and a few nice antiques placed around. Our host gave us such a warm welcome, we felt we had just arrived as a dinner guest! The function room is being renovated and will be great. This is definitely going to be the place to stay - watch this space and book early! Many thanks.

Warm, comfortable, friendly and happy to recommend it to our friends and family. Vegetarian breakfast options appreciated.


Anne Marie White

I would like to thank you for my stay on the 24th February, It was way better than I had expected, I had a great nights sleep which is not something I can normally say when I am staying away. Breakfast was excellent especially the vegetarian option, I can honestly say it was the best vegetarian brekkie I have ever eaten out. The rooms were really clean and very comfortable. Keep up the good work. 


David Oldman

I received a warm welcome, a well-equipped & comfortable room, and great food.

The furnishings are well-chosen & interesting - how often can you say that about a B&B?


Joyce Kiejda & Dave Dutton

Excellence in every way - great accommodation, great food, great company - we'll be here for our 5th visit before summer. Thank you both.


Laura Logan

Thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Good clean rooms, very friendly service, and excellent breakfast. Will definitely come back to stay.

Friendly welcome, great service and very good value for money. Will certainly stay again when in the area. Thanks.

David & Glynne Clarke

High quality rooms along with warm friendly service resulted in a very relaxing stay. More than a B&B.

Truly impressive, warm and relaxing, an absolute delight! Will definitely be returning and will be recommending this delightful stay to all my travelling colleagues. Well done guys!!
