We are writing this on our second visit to Muirhead Guest House, having enjoyed our first visit so much that we have booked in again on our way back through the area. We are on a family holiday and have booked two rooms, both which are excellently appointed, neat, tidy and very clean. The room which we stayed in overlooked... More

Everything was so clean & tidy a real credit to Keith. Breakfasts were great and kept us going during the day. Keith made us very welcome and always has time to stand and chat.It is... More

Muirhead Guesthouse is a well run, beautifully furnished guesthouse in which it was a pleasure to spend the night. Keith was a lovely host and pointed us in the right direction to one of many pubs on the seafront where we could get a meal that night. Everything was in walking distance and the little town of Portpatrick is a... More

So glad to have found The Muirhead. Keith is obviously passionate about his business and The Muirhead is a credit to him. The attention to detail and cleanliness is to be commended. We enjoyed his chat and local knowledge and will definitely stay at The Muirhead when next visiting Portpatrick. We would recommend staying here to you all.

We have stayed here before, was made very welcome by Keith, given a beautiful room as before, house was spotless and service excellent. Food was beautiful, a pleasure to stay, we even booked an extra night. Will certainly stay there again most relaxing three days.

The reviews on here persuaded us to try out Muirhead and we were not disappointed. We booked for our friends wedding and had a lovely room overlooking the putting green, immaculate with a very helpful host, Keith, also offering a wonderful breakfast. Great location only 1 minutes walk to the seafront where the Crown pub was also a great choice... More
