We came down for a Saturday night break (two adults and two children). We were given the family room at the top of the house which was comfortable, a great size for us and included a fantastic view over the town to the sea. Portpatrick is quite small, so the harbour is just a few minutes walk away. The kids... More

This hotel (guest house) is situated uphill approximately 300m from the village centre. The large room we were in (5) had a huge comfortable double bed and was very clean, although there was a mis-match of the decor. The room had an ensuite bath (no shower only hand held linked to taps). Warning - the hot water is HOT. The... More

Me and the mrs stayed here for two nights in march 2013. The hotel offers very good value for money and to be honest we were not expecting much. What we got was a good sized room which was clean and warm and a very nice breakfast in the morning. The owner was very friendly and made us feel very... More

Good value hotel on the hill looking over Portpatrick. Comfortable room, lovely breakfast and if you are lucky you will meet the two cutest dogs I have seen in a long time, a Cockapoo and a Jackapoo that belong to the owners - I was smitten. We will be back.

Thoroughly enjoyed a 2-night stay this week and was very happy with the accommodation. It was excellent value for money; breakfasts were hearty and the atmosphere at the Dunskey was very relaxing. Although a very light sleeper, I wasn't disturbed at all.The Coles were cheerful hosts and, for a non-driver, the location was very handy for the bus service. It... More

What a lovely relaxing time, except for some rowdy golfers one night who were very drunk and very noisy, waking me up 4 times! Was hosted well and a fantastic breakfast was on offer. 5 mins walk (up/downhill) to village. Would stay here again.

Was pleased to get in here as Portpatrick was busy, and indeed there was a great welcome from the charming and he;lpful host. The atmosphere is good, and the lived-in quality of the decor - especially the doors and doorframes gave the feel of a slightly chaotic but comfortable home. It was good to have a single room that felt... More
