Needed a overnight stop before catching the ferry. Room was clean and warm, and had the facilities we needed, including a kettle with tea, coffee, milk and biscuits. Bedding and towels were scrupulously clean, as was the chalet and small bathroom. Decor was a wee bit dated, but considering we had a comfortable room, a hot shower, parking right outside the door and a short walk to town where we found plenty of pubs and places to eat, it was nothing we couldn't overlook.

Ideal Stopping Off Point - Rating 5/5

on past occasions when catching the Cairnryan to Belfast Ferry it has been a mad dash to get the ferry after a 500 mile drive so this time we decided to travel up to Stranraer the day before and avoid any stress catching the ferry, the same was planned for the return trip.On arrival at the Thistle Inn it just looks like an ordinary pub, but drive to the rear and the terrace type ground floor rooms look most inviting, the double room was clean and nicely decorated and the en suite shower/toilet clean and well presented,heating was available and required as the temperature dropped during the evening, TV, wi-fi,tea and coffee were all available in the room,after a good nights sleep we set off for the ferry relaxed and in good spirits. On return from Ireland we stayed at the Thistle for another night before travelling to the Lake District, we occupied a similar room which was to the same standard as the other. Would recommend the Thistle Inn to anyone who needs a stopping off point at a reasonable cost.

I very much enjoyed my stay. The room was large and comfortable, with interesting architectural features, and the bed was very comfortable. The room was quiet and restful. It was not en suite, but the bathrooms were close and really ample for the number of rooms. I liked having the choice of a bath as well as a shower. Having the kitchen was welcome. I was able to eat a tasty take-away meal and keep milk in the fridge. The staff were very helpful and friendly. I was a bit sorry not to call in at the bar - just too tired after having been out all day! But it looked very cheerful and welcoming.

Warm welcome - Rating 4/5

We stayed in the large family room, it was clean,warm and comfortable. No on suit but not a problem as there are two bathrooms very close to all 5 bedrooms.Breakfast was a choice of cereal, toast and cooked, tea and fruit juice. This is not a 4 star hotel but for the money (£70)good value, I would say again.

The Thistle Inn - Rating 5/5

The accomodation was lovely, the breakfast lovely and the staff were extremely helpful and friendly - acting above and beyond the call of duty. Just one problem - they weren't expecting us - not that it mattered. They put the matter right in about 10 seconds. It's just lucky that they hadn't gone out. But I'd certainly recommend The Thistle.
