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

Seven years in a row for a long weekend golf break at the Fernhill! I've said it all before, you will get a nice clean room, great food and a warm welcome at this hotel. OK, some parts are a bit tired now, but don't be put off by that, the staff go out of their way to make sure... 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...

Beautiful location with spectacular sea views. The staff were professional, courteous and friendly. The food was superb - couldn't fault it - presentation, portions, choice and quality all first rate. Nice touch of Happy Anniversary in chocolate on the dessert plate on one day and Happy Birthday on another. On a wet day we were told we could use the... More

My wife along with my daughter and her husband had a 3 night stay at this very pleasant hotel, the rooms are excellent, the food excellent and guess what, the view is excellent. The staff are more than willing to help, the waiters and waitresses in the dining room are to be commended. I would whole heartedly recommend this hotel.

Excellent welcome from the receptionist. Well appointed public rooms. Amazing views. Room with a balcony No 22. Very comfortable and a good size. The hotel is very clean. Friendly and attentive staff. Breakfast in a very comfortable dinning room was excellent. Again the views from the dinning room were beautiful. Well worth a visit.
