Didn't quite live up to expectations - the web site promised more fish dishes but on the night the choices were more limited. However, it was very good value for money. Ask for a table in the conservatory window to make the most of the lovely views over Portpatrick.

We ate here while staying elsewhere in Portpatrick. From the moment you walk in and see that stunning picture window, you know that this will be a treat. The set menu, at £22.50 for three courses and coffee, is excellent value for money, with canapes served before the meal. The food was very nicely balanced, so that we had eaten... More

Stayed here some years ago and this lovely hotel has grown somewhat. However, the friendly atmosphere remains. We had a welcome glass of sherry and then we were shown to our room, a good size, with 'proper' furniture, plenty of wardrobe and drawer space and a good sized bathroom with a bath. The young staff were friendly, well trained and... More

We returned to Fernhill for a weekend break having been there about 7 years ago. Definitely need to be back quicker than that next time. From the time we arrived and were presented with a glass of sherry in reception to the time we paid the bill and left we were extremely well looked after by all the staff. Everyone... More

Fernhill is a lovely hotel and exceeded my expectations. Very well run by great staff and super food to boot. Worth paying extra for a sea view room. I stayed in the new block which has 16 very spacious rooms, the lower floor ones have a great terrace with extensive views over the harbour. There seemed to be guests who... More

Three night stay to end our fortnight's holiday break. First weeks break at Hotel Astarea in Mlini Croatia was excellent, wondered if Fernhill could match it! If at all possible it surpassed it. Courteous, efficient and very friendly staff. Superb food, great location. Room with balcony overlooking village and harbour. Definitely recommend staying here. Will not mention the difference in...
