The place was an absolute dump the worse I have ever seen wallpaper falling off walls broken beds the place is stinking
Location. Staff pleasant and helpful
Accomodation not what was expected for the charge, tired and basic. Poor value for money. No parking although space confirmed on booking!
Had to enter the hotel via a very busy bar. Lady running the place ignored us while she chatted with someone. She directed us to the third floor when our room was on the second. Later she put ice in a single malt without being asked to and thought it was ok to fish the ice out. Wasn't well pleased when when that wasn't accepted. Breakfast included 1/4 of a potato scone and what looked like half a small mushroom finely sliced.
None of the descriptions above match the style. Basic leaning towards tired and shabby ....
Decor pretty dull, needs upgrading. No Wi-fi ..no hairdryer. Breakfast far too greasy ..
The staff which were really friendly. The location was really good.
Its needing a lot of work done to it. Wallpaper falling of the walls all over the place. Carpets must have been put down when the place was built, terrible condition. Showers were rubbish.
With a stay at The Downshire Hotel in Stranraer, you'll be within a 15-minute drive of Dunskey Garden and Castle of St John. Free self parking is available onsite.
