This is the second year we have stayed with Maggie and Fred. Words really cant describe this place,you have to try it. We hadthe same room no 6 very nice. The breakfast is very good, plenty to eat. I believe they have a hot tub now but we didn't get to try it. We will be back next year.

Rickwood is a delightful B&B/hotel. Modern, well equipped, easy parking. Clean, neat and comfortable, they were able to cater for our requirements of a room with 3 "proper" beds rather than 2 beds and a folding mattress. There is a bright sunny conservatory/lounge for guests' use where one can pick up some useful tips by talking to the many "regulars".... More

As title states, simply the best, we arrived to a fantastic welcome from Maggie and Fred and shown all round before we was shown our room, with a fantastic sea view. Maggie explained where things were in village places to eat and drink and the best place to catch the sun. The hotel is kept immaculate everything and everywhere spotless,... More

This would have been our 12th year running but we had to miss last year due to other commitments - that's how good it really is! Fred and Maggie are the perfect hosts - it doesn't matter what else they have going on, they always have a friendly welcome and nothing is too much trouble. This year, we noticed, that... More

Excellent stay. We had a very warm welcome from Maggie & Fred and the accommodation & Breakfast was to a high standard. A very friendly Hotel and should you require anything from your hosts they are only too willing to help. Would certainly recommend this Hotel to other visitors and we will definitely be back again.

My husband and I stayed in the beautiful seafront village of Portpatrick for our first wedding anniversary and were fortunate enough to have chosen Rickwood House for our accommodation. Maggie and Fred (the owners) were warm, friendly and welcoming and could not have done more to make us feel completely at home. They had great knowledge of the area and... More

We had a lovely stay at the Rickwood House Hotel last weekend and were made to feel very welcome by Maggie & Fred . Our room was very comfortable and spotlessly clean and enjoyed a lovely cooked breakfast. It made a lovely base to explore a beautiful part of Scotland and would recommend this hotel and will be back in... More

Stayed for 3 nights in the suite upstairs and were met by Maggie on arrival who showed us around and was a mine of local information. Her passion for her adopted town was obvious. Room was spotless and bed comfortable. Only suggestion from Mrs skelghyl was for a mirror to be close to a powerpoint for doing her hair to... More

Perfect location overlooking Portpatrick and the sea. Lovely setting and very quiet. It was a short walk (though steep) to restaurants and shops, as well as to a couple of walking trails heading north and south along the coast from the harbor. The rooms have been lovingly updated and very clean and bright. A sunroom on the main floor offered... More
