They have some special dinner, bed and breakfast offers, and if you phone them rather than book online, you may get more offers! The room was quite... More

Went there recently for a much-needed escape. We stayed one night and the room was great. Views lovely. We like good cocktails and they made a great strawberry daiquiri! Dinner was great - we had all fish dishes. The location can't be beaten and we took full advantage the next day by going over to Strangford on the ferry and... More

Although this is an older property it is very well decorated and very pleasant to stay in. It displays a lot of sailing pictures and some memorabilia which is very much in keeping with the area and adds insight into local life. The sitting area provided lovely views over the tranquil Lough and the majestic ferry crossing still waters at... More

The atmosphere was great from the moment we arrived till when we left. Great service, superb selection of food which was of the highest quality when it arrived at the table and to top it all, a four poster bed. Not a bad way to pass a great weekend. Would recommend the Portaferry Hotel to anyone without a moments hesitation.... More

We dined in the restaurant to celebrate my sons birthday and stayed overnight. As usual the food was excellent both at dinner and breakfast. We love this hotel. It has a relaxed, warm and welcoming atmosphere. The staff are incredibly hard working and accommodating. They ensured our stay was as perfect as possible. Thank you all. We will return.

Lovely hotel with beautiful views across Strangford Lough. The food was amazing and nothing was any trouble for the staff. The rooms were clean and comfortable and the staff friendly and helpful. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this hotel. Hope to go back soon

The Portaferry hotel is excellent. The location is perfect. The staff are so friendly and helpful. The food is delicious - special mention for the afternoon tea, fresh and filling! I stayed here on September 18th with two friends, on the recommendation of a friend from Belfast. We had adjoining rooms which were well appointed and comfortable with views over... More
