We stayed here for a two night break at the start of july, and what a lovely stay we had, friendly staff, beautiful location and fabulous food, from walking into reception we got a lovely friendly welcome, we had a nice large room downstairs (no7), I noticed straight away that the hotel is spotlessly clean, our room was large and...

I would echo most of the points in other reviews. The glass of sherry on arrival was a nice touch but the friendliness and cheerfulness of the whole staff team made us feel valued anyway. The restaurant team were quite young but again very friendly, courteous and efficient. The dinner menu was somewhat limited but everything we had was delicious.... More

Two night short break in Portpatrick and decided on the Fernhill taking into account trip advisor reviews. Hotel is in a great position with lovely views of the town and harbour with easy access to the village and local walks. Reception helpful on arrival and we were given a room downstairs near to reception. The room itself was a good... More

Still great value especially for golfers! We took the golf package and played at Dunskey and Stranraer. The hotel staff are excellent and always make you feel welcome. This was our sixth year - I think that says it all!

We booked a two day golf package at the Fernhill Hotel, the staff were very efficient at the reception when we arrived and they booked our times at the chosen courses we had picked, we were shown to our room which was spacious and well appointed, with a small terrace over looking the bay, the bathroom was clean and bright...

From checking in at reception we were welcomed like old friends and this lasted all though our stay. as others say the food is extremely good and well presented. our room was large and had ample facilities. the view over the bay is wonderful and makes just sitting looking down a novel experience. seagulls flew passed the window as if...

I've eaten at Fernhill once or twice most years over the past 30. It's always been above average and one of the best places in the area. Earlier this week we booked a table in the conservatory (really the only place to eat at Fernhill as you can sit and enjoy a panoramic backdrop of views out over the village... More

This was my second visit to the Fernhil - and had it not been for the personal service of Carolyn on reception we might not have been able to have enjoyed a stay at all this time round. She called one of the golfing groups to see if they required all the rooms for our dates and fortunately we managed... More

We visit regularly and are never disappointed. Food at dinner is excellent, a very interesting and varied menu. We usually have room 15 but this time opted for the more modern room 46 which also has a greatview of the hadbour. Very clean and comfortable although lots of noise from the plumbing! The staff in the restaurant really are superb,... More

This is our second visit to The Fernhill Hotel staying for 2 nights DBB (last time was in Jul'11). The location is absolutely amazing and the views fantastic. We received a very nice welcome with a glass of sherry before being shown to our room (this is a lovely touch and pleased they still do it). Room very nice with... More
