Rickwood House Hotel is a beautifully presented, immaculately clean home from home. Brilliantly convenient for the golf course and yet a five minute stroll to the heart of Portpatrick. Maggie and Fred are wonderful hosts who provide information on the surrounding attractions and places to eat. Maggies homemade shortbread is gorgeous and I can't wait to partake whenever we visit....

Maggie & Fred, the owners make the Rickwood a very special place for us every year for the past decade. We feel very looked after. Our room is very comfortable and spotless. Nothing is any trouble at all for Maggie & Fred and we always feel very welcome. This year the hot tub was a big hit with our group.... More

Fantastic end to 2015 and start to 2016 in the Rockwood with family and friends - we think that's about 15 years we've been going. Location looking over the village. Rooms all excellent and en suite. Beds big and so comfy. Breakfast options very good - all locally sourced products, always fun guessing daily special, my brothers favourite potato scone!... More

Great views from our room -The Factors suite. A lovely large bathroom. Scrupulously clean. Ammmazingly underused and brand new outdoor hot tub with views out to sea. Fluffy bathrobes in the room to swan down to the tub in. The hosts are exceedingly pleasant and friendly people. Felt as if they were distant cousins looking after us for a couple... More

My wife and I decided to join some friends at Rickwood House Hotel for a short mid-week stay. It was an excellent decision and our friends had made an inspired choice of accommodation. The proprietors were very welcoming and could not do enough to make our stay enjoyable. They have put a great deal of thought into needs of guests.... More

Stayed for one night after a long drive from Wales. Room was spacious and very clean & comfortable and the breakfast the next day was great. Lovely owners too. Would definitely stay here again.It was pet friendly but we decided to relax and put the dogs in local kennels for an extra night!

A most welcoming hotel, we thoroughly enjoyed the experience. Maggie and Fred have created a warm and comfortable hideaway in this most beautiful of settings. The rooms are comfortable and clean, the breakfast filling and evening meals are available.

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
