Stayed here for an extended period of time, and everything was superb. Have no complaints. The only points of improvement would be better wifi coverage for the room, I had to sit in a particular location in the room for it to work. The food in the restaurant was excellent and I ate there most nights. Did note that the... More

I visited this hotel with friends and family for a wedding and had an amazing experience. The staff were so friendly but also discreet and professional in carrying out their duties. The food was first class and served promptly at each course. The views over the bay were stunning. The hotel was so clean and well presented. We had a... More

This is by far the nicest hotel we have ever visited. We arrived quite strung out from busy jobs and, within 24 hours, felt more relaxed that we had done in months. Everything about this place is faultless; the beds were comfy, the food was delicious and the surrounding area is stunning (the views from the restaurant and reception area... More

Stayed here for business trip and the stay was pleasant. Check in was quick and the receptionist was very helpful and cheery. Room was clean and tidy, though it was a little cool for my liking. The heating struggled to warm the room, but I used the extra blanket and slept soundly. The hotel is quiet with no traffic, no... More

We visited this hotel again after about a year and the standard is still good. The food is excellent and very good value. Views of the harbour from the room and also the dining room are wonderful. Only complaint on this occasion was a very inefficient reception process. Something to be looked at, otherwise very good.

This hotel is a piece of heaven. The staff are efficient and friendly and the food is wonderful. What should have been an overnight just had to be extended as it was so good. Simple things like the sherry on arrival, luggage being taken to your room and after dinner coffee served in the lounge, just make your stay special.... More

Another visit to the Fernhill Hotel in Portpatrick and without doubt this hotel just gets better and better. The staff are just superbly trained and motivated, the food improves constantly and the whole operation is expertly overseen by General Manager Ailsa. Can't wait to go back

Just had Sunday lunch at the Fernhill Hotel, this is the 4th time I've eaten there, and each time I've been delighted, the food is excellent, and beautifully presented, the staff polite and helpful, the price reasonable, in a lovely setting with a superb view, the whole package really, and all for £14.50 for a three course lunch.

Back from another great stay at The Fernhill, always a warm welcome with a glass of sherry on arrival. We stayed in one of the larger rooms with its own terrace and great views of the town and harbour. This time we took advantage of a 3 nights for 2 DBB mid week break which made it even more great...
