this is our favourite place to holiday we come for the solitude, the sea, the pampering and the food we travel from Kent, usually each year, since 1992 though it has changed hands, it remains perfect there is nothing that we can see to improve

Previous visit was 1999 with young children, this time only my wife and I visited. The hotel is even better than I recall. The staff are superb (Donna, Anne, Lorna, owner David, chef Davie et al). The hotel is cosy with a relaxed feel and the rooms well appointed. The first night's dinner was very good taste (presentation maybe not... More

Wonderful location, excellent service, 5 course taster menu inspiring and the ambience just so relaxing. Loved all the little touches and attension to detail. Great position for exploring the Galloway peninsula. Only there for 3 nights but came away feeling relaxed. Will definitely be going back. The dining room is a lovely room for eating and loved the fact that... More

Yes, it's at the end of the earth but well worth a visit. We were there for a special occasion and it was delightful. Lovely, slightly old fashioned rooms and service but everything works as it should. Comfortable beds made up with sheets and blankets, drinks before dinner and total peace and beauty overlooking a private beach. Dinner was delicious,... More

This was our all too brief honeymoon visit . From a warm welcome from the ever helpful smiling staff , the beautiful bedroom over looking the Irish sea and the amazing food every night it was a honeymoon to remember . Even the sunshine put in appearance which allowed us to take a bright blustery walk along the cliffs past... More

Old fashioned Scottish hotel. Great service, food was excellent, the bar area very cosy and traditional, a wonderful and remote setting. Fantastic walks - which were relaxing and not challenging. And great weather even in February!

This hotel is set in the most beautiful spot and as soon as you arrive and take in the surroundings you feel yourself relax and unwind. We had a side room with a view of the garden and the sea and it was very comfortable. Everything about Knockinaam reminds you of a lovingly cared for country house from long ago,... More

We returned to Knockinaam for our fifth year in succession last week and yet again we find this Hotel impossible to fault. The management and staff are simply wonderful, attentive and friendly. The food is delicious and ever amazing - Knockinaam clearly merits its Michelin rating and its no surprise to learn that they have a high guest return rate.... More

We stayed here on Saturday night and it's hard to describe it without sounding a bit over the top! We had paid for a sea view which was stunning. Our room had been recently refurbished and had a double sized shower enclosure and beautiful fittings. We lay on the bed with the window open and just listened to the waves... More

Just had two nights of perfect luxury, delicious food and amazing surroundings. This was an anniversary treat which lived up to our expectations and more. Set in a remote but beautiful bay, we were lucky to have two days of amazing spring weather that allowed us to walk along the cliffs to Portpatrick and visit Logan Botanical Gardens( an absolute...
