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...

An absolute treat of a Hotel. If you want a quiet and relaxing break in a beautiful location then this is the place. The staff go the extra mile to make sure your stay is memorable and the accommodation is of the very highest standard. As part of the stay we had the five course tasting menu and this was... More

Knockinaam is an absolute diamond in the accommodation world. We visited with my wonderful godparents, who have been regularly coming to Knockinaam for many years. Amazingly well kept in an awe inspiring location, with it's own beach. It's is an old hunting lodge and has been beautifully maintained by the owners. Staff are exceptionally helpful and the food is completely... More

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.
