First time visit to the Fernhill for New Year Break. It was excellent - comfortable, relaxing, good food, attentive service. Ideal for a stroll around Portpatrick and for a drive around the Mull of Galloway. We'll be back.

Lovely staff, good views, great food, spacious rooms. Staff could not have been more helpful. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Kirkpatrick is a lovely little place, we will certainly come back to stay at Fernhill.

This is our 3rd stay at the Fernhill Hotel, this time we booked the 3-night package over New Year. The stay was just superb - as ever the food was top class, the service impeccable and our room very comfortable - even in the stormy conditions with lashing rain at times we enjoyed our incredible view down to the harbour...

We took advantage of a discounted DB & B rate to stay for three days between Xmas and New Year. The hotel wasn't too busy, and the always excellent service was even better than usual. The staff are... More

We have just returned from a three night New Year break and cannot rate this hotel highly enough particularly with respect to the staff, whoever trains them knows their job. The setting is wonderful, the rooms are well equipped and maintained and the food is excellent.

Very friendly and helpful staff, first rate food well served. The menus are very well planned and excellently prepared. Astonishing views over the village and harbour. This hotel punches well above its rating, and is strongly recommended. The helpfulness of the staff cannot be praised too highly. This was our fifth stay at this hotel. We shall be back to... More

Arrived at the Fernhill after a 4 hour drive on a dark and wet winter's night - the warm and friendly welcome from Jan on reception and the excellent meal in the restaurant of could not have been a greater contrast to encourage me to wind down and relax next to the real fire! I was especially impressed that Jan... More

I came with my family for afternoon tea. It was brilliant. Greeted at the front door by a very pleasant lady who showed us through to another room to which we were greeted by a very pleasant young man who served us during our visit. Service was second to none! Great choice or sandwiches and cakes, I'd go as far... More
