All staff at The Waterfront couldn't do enough for us, the food was of top quality, taste and presentation and not just on the Wedding day but during many other visits, thank you all. From the moment we booked the hotel for our Wedding reception, all of the staff have been outstanding and caring. We had 55 guests that attended... More

This was a birthday treat from my wife and we stayed for two nights on a DBB basis and thoroughly enjoyed our stay in all aspects. The hotel was very clean and all the staff were excellent and could not have been more friendly and attentive. We had a twin room with a fantastic view of the harbour, although the... More

My wife and I have just returned from a delightful short break in Portpatrick. All the staff at the Waterfront Hotel were most pleasant and helpful. We were made most welcome from the moment we arrived. Our sea view room afforded a splendid panorama across the harbour and provided ideal comfortable accommodation for our stay. The ensuite facility was rather... More

From the time we walked in the door and we're greeted by Robert until checkout, our experience has been excellent. We were given a tour of the building, being shown all of the amenities we would need to complete our stay. We had perfectly prepared dinner and breakfast. Previous reviews I saw complained about the room size, our room was... More

Four of us stayed there as part of a short golf break to Portpatrick. We were put in the Westburn Annexe at the rear/side, which suited us down to the ground as we had access to a private lounge with large flatscreen TV for watching golf. Had dinner & breakfast there. Rooms are a bit on the small side, but... More

Although the location is good the hotel is a disgrace. The rooms are far too small, if you want to get dressed you have to stand on the bed, you cant move in the "ensuite"! The food is bland and overpriced, the staff don't care and show no interest in making sure you have a pleasant experience! The place should... More
