Dropped in a windy Sunday afternoon, we had though it had been bought over by Bill Wolesy" of the "Merchant hotel". We were expecting updated & grandeur, however this was not the case. We ate in the bar as the restaurant was not available. Basic honest fayre, with reasonable pricing & very pleasant accommodating staff. The whole experience was satisfactory.... More

First time staying since new owner took over and its not a change for the better. The hotel is no longer as friendly as it was. When I asked for the Manager (a young chap from Poland) but was told had left---what a pity as he was so helpful friendly and nothing was too much trouble him. Now everything seemed... More

Came up to Portaferry last week with my parents for a drive. Parked outside The Portaferry Hotel and checked out the menu which seemed exactly what we wanted.Plus the fact Portaferry doesn't appear to have any other restaurants our minds were easily made up. The restaurant inside is full of character, staff friendly and helpful and most importantly of all... More

When you walk into the hotel you take a step back in time.Visit this quaint hotel for fresh fish and succulent seafood served up on home made soda bread. The smell of wax on the shiny wooden floors reminds me of my childhood in the west of Ireland. All the beautiful original features are untouched. I sat outside on the... More

A BIG thank-you to the Portaferry Hotel. My mum's birthday celebrations were recently held here. We were given the private room upstairs to hold the dinner which made the birthday celebration that extra bit special. It was over looking the lough, just as our rooms were. The food was delicious and the service outstanding (thanks George!). I had to change... More

This is a b&b more than a hotel in a converted Georgian house right on the waterfront. My room overlooked the ferry landing, with wonderful views of Strangford village on the opposite side especially early and late in the day. The (Polish) management could not be more welcoming or informative. My room was comfortable, spacious, the bedding great, the wifi... More

Although we'd been to Portaferry before we'd never stayed there. The Portaferry Hotel certainly did not disappoint us, with its homely and traditional style. The bedroom (number 9) had a magnificent view across the lough to Strangford. It was small but very clean and comfortable, with charming antique furniture, and nice touches including bottled water and a selection of biscuits... More

We had another good meal in the Bistro at the Portaferry Hotel. Both bar and dining room menu were available and we had a big selection to chose from. Good service and good food. Well presented and great flavour. Well done.

Busy bar and bistro area customers all squeezed in while dining room not open ?? Staff almost on The verge of being rude maybe too busy to deal with the customer? Cannot remember the last time we had to complain about poor portions in any local restaurant. We were so glad we did not have any visiting guests with us... More

An experience that will live long in the memory! The happy couple and guests were made feel so welcome during our stay and all needs were catered for from arrival to departure. If ever a venue and location is required for celebrating an event to simply dining or enjoying a drink then look no further than this.
