Have stayed here in the past and again it did not disappoint. Room was of a good size and facilities are excellent. Breakfast is exceptional- and caters for all tastes. Personally I recommend the full Scottish breakfast which you will not get better in a five star hotel as it is all cooked fresh and served immediately- beats these cooked...

I had a most enjoyable stay at Hawthorn House. The standard of cleanliness was above reproach as was the catering. Tim and Hilary were attentive to exactly the right degree and I would recommend the establishment unhesitatingly to anyone seeking accommodation in the Port William area.

Good facilities in an excellent location with kind and considerate service representing excellent value for money. The proprietor was particularly helpful when he arranged a location for dinner and then drove me to the restaurant when my late arrival on my bicycle in poor weather threatened to make me miss last orders for a meal.

This is a lovely old house at the end of the road directly across the street from the ocean in Port William. Our room was en suite and spacious. The shower is great and the heated towel rack was awesome. The view of the sea is spectacular. The proprietors make a lovely breakfast and allow you to order what you'd...

Our room was the king size ensuite, comfortable bed, beautiful room with fantastic view of the sea. Excellent refreshment selection from decaffinated/caffinated tea and coffee to hot chocolate with some home made shortbread too. Great breakfast selection and a man sized cooked breakfast - perfect start to the day. Would highly recommend it.

Very warm welcome from the host, inside looks like it's from 19th century but only built in 1988, stayed in there twin room was very comfortable with ability to make a hot drink if required, food was excellent and we'll presented. Reason only 4 stars because you have to share a bathroom, but overall excellent recommend it to anyone.
