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.

Hotel very good. Food very good and well presented. Staff in the dining room were all young but very attentive and knew what they were doing. They asked several times if everything was alright which I think is good. Dinner was just 3 courses but very good. Good choice of wine at a reasonable price. Able to have coffee or... More

The ONLY place worth staying in Portpatrick...and sensibly priced. spectacular view, very spacious rooms, luxury (albeit traditional) fittings, ample private parking, a 5 minute walk down to the village and harbour, delicious, well cooked and well presented breakfast in a beautiful room with nothing but sea views so disturb you! The service was excellent..helpful reception, lots of local info, breakfast... More

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

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
