Excellent bathroom space and meticulously clean. The dining room is light and airy and if you are lucky enough to get the window table, can... 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

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
