Have just returned from 3 days golfing with 19 friends. We paid 20% of what a trip to Portugal would have cost - the weather was kind but the package offered was unbeatable regardless. The accommodation is clean and comfortable and the food was exceptional for the price.

Out for a drive and stopped off for an early dinner (or late lunch) and was delighted to find this great hotel with bar and restaurant serving meals all day. Opted for scallop starter and pheasant breasts for main and both were excellent. Great service and friendly staff, would use again.

Returned to Portpatrick and stayed at the Crown Hotel for 4 great nights. Not stayed before,couldn't have been looked after any better. This hotel isn't the Ritz not that we have stayed there,but the welcome we received to the time we left 4 days later was just what you would expect from this family run hotel. Polite and helpful staff,... More

We have just had a wonderful seafood lunch in the bar of the Crown Hotel, Portpatrick in front of a roaring fire. As it was a cold day, this was so welcoming, as were the staff who were friendly and helpful. Nothing was too much trouble for them. The food was to die for - everything fresh and beautifully prepared.... More

We stayed two nights in this small comfortable tho somewhat dated hotel. Good food and always friendly staff with a great folk night for entertainment. Views out to sea from our window and snug in front of a coal fire. Lovely walks round the cliffs,

Visited twice during a fortnight's stay in the area. Warm, old-fashioned, local's pub serving standard pub fare plus a few 'specials' and with a good selection of ales. Friendly service and good value. Difficult to beat if you just want something simple, substantial & quick.

Visited The Crown a couple of times during our visit to the Portpatrick area. Lovely warm friendly atmosphere. Frequented by locals and visitors alike. Food was excellent. Well presented, quickly served and good value. Proper old fashioned pub. They don't make them like this anymore!
