if you want a totally relaxing, get away from it all spot, with great food and service, then Knockinaam is the place. Log fires, excellent bedroom and a private bay to look out on sets the scene. Dinner was first class, beautifully cooked and presented, with friendly and unobtrusive service. A bracing walk on the cliff top to Portpatrick (... More

This is probably one of my favourite places that I have ever been to. We went for lunch just after Christmas. It was a sunny but blustery day so the views over the sea were incredible, we were lucky enough to sit in the bay window to eat the wonderful food served by friendly and relaxed staff. The roaring fires... More

We have just had a 3 night stay here during terrible weather.The gales meant that beach and clifftop walks were positively dangerous so we made up our mind to enjoy the comforts of the hotel. This is an old grade 1 listed building with the draught proofing problems that that can bring but the hotel has open fires, good central... More

This was my second time staying at the amazing Knockinaam lodge, yet again I arrived late, I had a lovely dinner in the drawing room (there was a shooting party who had the dinning room) this was no hardship to me in the slightest. My room was terrific, large and great views over the wild irish sea. This a must... More

We have just returned from a 3 night hogmany celebration. The hotel is like a country home and very warm and friendly. The lounges are comfortable and have log fires. Our bedroom (East room) was the smallest but we booked late. It was perfectly adequate as was the bathroom. Proper hangers and free easy to access wiFi were appreciated. What... More

Back again! It's been over. a year since our last visit , far too long. The food and service are first class and sitting in the Lounge with a log fire burning in the grate makes me wish that tomorrow and our journey home could be postponed. Well done for consistently keeping the standards high.

My wife and I have stayed in the Knockinaam Lodge on 5 occasions over the past four years. It is, quite simply, fabulous. We intend to stay for two nights every October because it simply can't be beaten on location, quality of food and the friendly and approachable staff. Rooms are lovely but personally I would avoid the two 'attic'... More

We recently stayed at Knockinaam for the first time & its an amazing place. The food was fantastic, especially the beef, the service excellent, attentive but not intrusive, and the hotel & surroundings simply stunning. We were made to feel welcome as soon as we arrived a very polite young man met us at our car & carried our bags... More

We had dinner in Knockinaam last week, as we have done many times over the years. It is a special place with log fires, excellent food, & superb location. Our meal was first class, albeit expensive at £65 pp before drinks ( which are also expensive). However, the experience is worth it, in my opinion. Nevertheless, I have not given... More
