Comfortable beds, hot showers and reasonable breakfast, (please serve low fat yoghurt and more fruit for those of use who prefer healthy to Full English). Links golf course next door and beautiful views from here too. Walk down to the Crown Pub for local scampi and chips, with Guiness-ice.

The guest house is not licensed but we asked if we could bring in some wine and have a drink at night in the lounge. No problem whatsoever and Gareth even provided the... More

Four of us stayed overnight on short golf break. Friendly welcome, decent rooms, clean & quiet. Good value. Very handy to Portpatrick Golf Club & town (village?) centre. Breakfast was spot-on. Will return.

I stayed here as I was heading to Cairnryan early for a ferry to Ireland, The owner was very flexible on when I needed to arrive and was lovely when I met him - nothing was too much trouble. The room was spacious, lovely living room and very comfy bed. The area is quiet too.

I had been visiting Sandhead near Portpatrick for a couple of days but then saw that the weather was to be great...and decided to stay another night and to see if I could get a hotel at the last minute in the Port itself...I had a memory of staying at the Dunskey some years ago and thought I would see...
