Had an alright dinner and a very disappointing lunch in June. Dinner was salmon with crushed potatoes and as usual the potatoes were cold but veg and salmon quite good - the salmon just a little over cooked. Arrived for lunch to the greeting from the owner before we got to a seat 'would you like a menu' - no... More

We are just back home from our 2night break at the Portaferry Hotel and I had to share our great experience with Tripadvisor. Check in was hassle free, our room, no 9, was just lovely overlooking Strangford Lough. All the little extras you would expect in the room were there. Attention to detail such as, china teacups and saucers, bottles... More

Found the service to be excellent. Food was of good quality, but however I felt the menu to be over priced for the standard of the meal I received. Overall, I would be put off the drive down to Portaferry for lunch on a day off as I feel there are other venues where I can get better value for... More

Our third visit to this gem on the edge of Strangford Lough. A small hotel but cosy rooms, get one with view of the Lough. Food served either in restaurant or bar. We dined in restaurant, wide choice with a lot of seafood. Pork fillet was beautiful, steaks also. We can sit for hours in the charming sitting room watching... More

This was a lovely hotel, very central so it was a great base to explore Portaferry and the surrounding beautiful areas. The staff were really friendly and helpful. The food in the restaurant was good and the rooms were comfortable and clean.

My partner and I stayed in June for one night. We had a very welcoming greeting from one of the proprietor who was working in the office. The building is old and a listed building which incurs large costs for maintenance. Everywhere was cosy and gleaming. Our room was large with lovely sea views and passing shipping and ferry arrivals.... More

We took the car ferry from Strangford to Portaferry £6 50,and this gave our short trip a real holiday feel,the trip only takes less than 10 mins. The ferry gets in beside the hotel. We walked into the reception area dazzled by the shine off the polished wooden floors and this level of cleanliness continued throughout the hotel. The bedroom... More

When with 5 other ladies for a B&B evening meal and a chefs cookery experience and had a great time. Got sea view rooms which were clean and comfortable - only problem was getting into the room - key would never open the door - lovely member of cleaning staff showed us there is a particular way to open door...

Just returned from my first visit to Portaferry, stayed two nights while working locally, the staff here are extremely friendly and helpful, arrived early, the rooms were ready, no problem getting in. As we were leaving early for work each day, we requested breakfast ahead of the normal time; this also was no problem at all. The room was nicely... More

Never been to this area before...loved it. The hotel has all the quaint features with a contemporary twist! Staff are so friendly and approachable. Food to die for. On approaching the hotel at first I thought...oh dear an off the street building... But as the old saying goes...never judge a book by its cover. This is a wee treasure hidden... More
