We were in the hotel at the same time as the people who wrote this unfair report regarding the flies and i feel i just have to set the record straight. We had an excellent meal and great service, and while there were a few flies about, they certainly did not detract from our enjoyment. It is summer by the... More

Visited here on Sunday for a couple of lunchtime drinks by he lady behind the bar was so lovely to us and was very friendly. Decided to have a bar snack to help soak up the Guinness and it was exceptional and served by an adorable chap called George. I had crisp bread crumbed Brie with red onion marmalade and... More

Called in for lunch on Saturday 25th July 2015 but when it was served we were inundated with flies throughout the time it took to eat the meal. We did mention this to staff who stated there was nothing they could do about it. I rang and complained again and was told it was a fact of nature and was... More

Four of us called in when visiting Portaferry and was greeted by rude, unfriendly barman. Had planned to eat there but thought twice about it and went elsewhere. Had a drink - which was over-priced - instead and left.

Stayed for one night recently. On arrival there was no one on reception and we had to wait for a minute or two - they seemed a bit understaffed and the man who eventually checked us in was also working in the bar seeing to other guests. I was impressed with the decor on arrival - it was a quaint... More

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.
