I had the chicken, haggis and bacon which was really good and a great portion. My gran had the sweet and sour chicken and there was loads of it also. The only...

I stayed here in 2003 and loved my stay. I gave the barmaid a gold watch as I was so pleased. I recommend this hotel to everyone. It is close to the harbour and has great sea views. I will definitly be going back with my new wife soon.

We made the hotel bar our local while we were staying in a cottage in Portpatrick for christmas. Friendly staff, friendly regulars and is open late! What more could you want! We didn't try the food, but the menu looked good, so when we go back (which we will!) we'll make sure we eat there too.

The restaurant has been given an overhaul and it looked great. Clean and warm, the lighting just right and the volume of the music spot on too. The menu comprises of typical...

Had a bar lunch and a couple of drinks after a 7 mile walk. Very good food and good beer served by a friendly waitress. There is a good selection of single malts too. A real fire too. What more do you want!

This is a barely average hotel in an excellent location. The mattresses in our room are long past overdue replacement. The restaurant needs staff with a bit more customer friendly training. (Breakfast staff were fine.). Breakfast itself was good. The three star rating is generous however and the price paid, £89 is too much for this standard of accommodation. The...
