Dirty , had to share a bathroom, staff couldnt give a toss. Booked 2 days before and because we decided we couldnt possibly stay were charged for one room as we didnt give 7 days notice. Was happyto pay the £80 not to stay there.

My husband and I recently vista's Stanraer as he grew here and had wanted to come back for a long time. We found Thistle Inn after a search on Google.

We stayed only one night and would have no hesitation returning. This is an ancient hotel, close to the town centre. We had a superb room, large and comfortable. We had been warned that Saturday night could be noisy due to the karaoke which would continue until 1am. Fortunately we couldn't hear it from our room. We both slept well.

We arrived Friday evening and were pleasantly surprised by the chalets at the back of the B&B. We were in no 5 and the décor was very light and airy. Lovely room with double bed and ensuite. Very clean. Only downside to the room was the old faded pictures which have seen better days on the walls :( We had...
