    Very good

    When we stayed the hotel was quite quiet and we were offered a choice of rooms. Staff were very friendly and whilst no en-suite in our room there were two very clean bathrooms available. We were staying as a family to get early ferry to ireland and location and room was ideal for us.

    A bit of noise from pub down stairs. But not bad enough to put us off staying there again.

    Clearly geared to 1 night ferry users and they did this well.

    Rooms ok but basic, bathroom could have been more spacious.

    This hotel advertised restaurant and bar neither of which actually existed. The hotel looked a little derelict from the outside. The chalets were at the back.

    Very friendly staff, and no problems with late check in.

    Very lumpy beds, old furniture and the fire alarm was falling off the ceiling. The curtains were very light, so the room very bright at 6 in the morning. Skimpy breakfast, 1 slice of burned bacon and 1 sausage. Cheap and cheerful.

    For a disabled traveller room 5 is excellent as the shower is easy access in and out being a twin room their is a choice of is a soft mattress and a firm one. The chef was very good and bought my breakfast to my room each day as getting up steps is a problem for me personally. Good for point of being able to park at door of chalet.

    For solo disabled traveller this hotel would be difficult to access if you are in a wheelchair or have problems climbing steps to public area.

    Exceptional

    I was running late and phoned them explaining that I would not expect to arrive until after 11pm. I was further held up and didn't arrive until after midnight but was made to feel that it was no trouble at all.

    Fabulous

    It was convenient for the one night on arrival off the ferry as we left the next morning to continue our trip.

    Better curtains as outside light shone into room during darkness.

    Mat tresses are past there prime You felt the Springs. The manager did provide a double duvet to put on top of mattress for my wife but after about 3hours she could again feel the springs through the duvet

    See box below re bookings. If you like curtains hanging off tracks and missing light bulbs, then this is the hotel for you!

    Good

    The thistle inn was ideal for us. We needed a one night stay in stranraer before we caught our ferry to belfast the next day. The chalet- type room was clean and plenty big enough for the three adults who were sharing a room.we also had our collie dog with us and she settled in well..the port was only 5 minutes away the next morning.

    The car park was very tight and not easily accessible for a larger car,also the televisions was very small up on the wall

    The breakfast was ok.

    The cost for the standard was vastly overpriced. The locks on our doors would not meet compliance safety standards, I.E. Difficult to lock from outside, difficult to open and lock from inside. In fact, in our unit, we slept with the door unlocked all night, the other unit, in event of fire, you would not escape easily. Toilet seat in one unit was broken. No mattress protectors which we feel would be a health issue. The water from the shower did not drain away, and in fact covered your feet! I cannot remember the exact rating except it was above 7.5 - we feel it should rate well below that.
