Felt the room was a bit on the cool side, mentioned at reception and they boosted heating and provided us with a... More

Our third stay here with friends on a pheasant shooting weekend. This time we had our 6 week old baby with us and she was made very welcome. All of the staff were sweet to her and a cot was provided in our room without us asking for it which was very considerate. Food here is amazing and the dinner... More

We stayed here Wednesday and Thursday just gone. WOW- what a stay. Nice looking hotel on top of the hill overlooking the beautiful portpatrick harbour. Perhaps the newer extension could have been more in keeping with the old stone of the original building but it still didnt disappoint.The only negative we had was the lady on reception when we arrived-...

I had friends staying at Fernhill recently and I wanted to arrange for a bottle of wine to be delivered to their table during dinner. My email contact was Fiona and she had this request taken care of quickly and efficiently. The bottle of wine was on their table when they arrived with a note wishing them a nice stay.... More

One night bead and breakfast plus dinner £215 . It's a superbly clean hotel but very old fashioned in its service principles and decor. Very clean and the staff are attentive but a little robotic . This hotel suits the older clientele brilliantly.

Although not able to book a room at the hotel, had a meal in the restaurant. Excellent value for money, not an extensive menu but that didn't matter. Young staff were very good and attentive. Great location overlooking the bay.

If you are looking for a wee bit luxury, spacious rooms, idyllic views, superb food, friendly staff surrounded by lush trees and foliage looking onto the water then this is without a doubt the hotel for you.. Stayed two nights and will be back to stay longer The food in my eyes was faultless and I am a pernickety eater,... More
