Best sleep in ages before travelling next day to Belfast. Margaret and Peter are truly lovely people. The breakfast was extremely good. This is perfect place to stay before a long days travel the next day.

A great place to stay if you are ever in the area. The owners Margaret and Peter are so warm and friendly. They make you feel at home right from the start. The guest house is super clean and very comfortable. The beds and bedding are of the highest standard. I awoke feeling very refreshed. The breakfast was exceptional and...

A really great welcome to the cleanest and most comfortable overnight stay. Margaret was so kind and looked after me so well. Everything in the room was immaculate. I had no difficulty in the morning and comfortably made the 7.30 ferry.

My wife and I have stayed in many guest houses and none come anywhere near the Homestead. Nothing beats the fantastic breakfast you get in the morning after your great nights sleep in one of the well-appointed rooms. Margaret is the best host and always has time to chat over breakfast. Saying the Homestead is perfect doesn't do it justice....

Stayed for 5 nights would not recommend any longer than a couple of nights! The landlady Margaret was very helpful and friendly but wanted to know where you had been everyday and where you were going the next!! She told us we could only have a bath around 5 pm because of the water going cold. We were asked by...

After arriving late off the ferry we were thrilled to see they had a vacancy. Margaret had actually seen us pass by earlier on our bicycles, at that point we were still intending to camp. The room we were given was the smaller one (Room 1) but everything was perfect and it was spotless. The shower is great and you...

The room was quite large, clean and had comfortable bed. There was a small shop next door which was handy (The only shop in Cairnryan). The owner, Margaret...

Price was fair and room was nice. Bed was comfy and breakfast was good. Owner was very helpful and pleasant. Recommend this B&B. Would stay again if we are in the area. Very convenient to the ferry and not far to find something to eat.

We were a group of 6 (3 couples) and we stayed at the B&B after getting off of the Ferry quite late. Margaret was very welcoming. We had the room with the twin beds. They were very comfortable with nice bedding. The next morning Margaret made us a hearty Scottish Breakfast and Peter drove 3 of the group to the...
