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

We recently stayed here after reading some excellent reviews about the place. I have to say that we were not disappointed at all. Service couldn't have been better. Fred and Maggie were very helpful and nothing was too much trouble. The room was very clean and comfortable as was the whole place. Would definitely recommend it and I am sure... More

We have just recently come back form staying with Maggie and Fred in the Rickwood Hotel in Portpatrick, which was a lovely welcoming home from home. 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

After reading other positive reviews we decided on staying here at the Rickwood Hotel. We were not disappointed at all from the moment we stepped foot in the place. We were sad to leave!!

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.

We recently returned to the Rickwood House Hotel and received a lovely warm welcome once again from Maggie and Fred. Both our room, and the hotel throughout, were as fresh and immaculately clean as we remembered from our previous trip. We'd booked the Factor's Room which had loads of space, a great view out to the sea and a large... More

Thanks to Fred and Maggie again for making us feel very welcome. This was our second stay in May 2014, or was was July of 2013. In 2013 we had Room 2 which is very spacious with large shower bathroom. In 2014 we had room 5 which is smaller (reflected in price) but adequate. My suggestion for Room 5 is... More

Man thanks for your review, Anne. We are so glad that you enjoyed your return visit and we hope to see you both again sometime. We appreciate your feedback re the pricing of room 5 however we feel the price is fair given it is about 20 percent less than our superior double room in view of its smaller size.... More

The room was spotless and well looked after, and this stayed the same throughout our stay. The bed was comfy and my husband, normally a light sleeper and intending to... More
