The room was extremely clean, the hosts are lovely and would help with ideas for walks, restaurants and places of interest, they seem really... More

What a lovely stay we had. Hosts, Fred and Maggie make everyone so welcome in their spotlessly clean hotel in a lovely location just a few minutes walk to the harbour. Our room was comfortable and homely with a great sea view. Breakfast was just a treat every morning and Maggie adds special little touches to make the dining experience... More

A very welcoming, friendly & relaxing Hotel / B&B run by hosts Maggie & Fred, located a few minutes walk above Port Patrick. Our room (no4) was spacious, clean, with super views over Port Patrick & the sea, whilst having its own comfortable seating sofa & chair to relax in. Maggie's home made shortbread is wonderful, (Charitable contributions requested) and... More

We've stayed at Rickwood Hotel and our experience was great. Maggie and Fred, our hosts, were welcoming and were always asking us how they could make our stay the best as possible. Our room, room 4, was the family room where we had a beautiful view of Portpatrick and the room was very very spacious. Moreover, it was very clean,... More

Our hosts were extremely friendly and welcoming and provided advice daily about places to visit or special events going on in the area. Breakfast was excellent with a daily extra choice to tempt the... More

We recently stayed for 2 nights at the Rickwood. It was magic! We had a fantastic room which Fred and Maggie dutifully tidied everyday as we were extremely messy! Fred was the perfect host and served us a great breakfast both mornings. The Kiwi Special Breakfast was a big hit with Stanka. Highly recommended! Overall a great place to stay.
