Pleasantly surprised at the quality and choice on the early bird menu, staff and locals friendly , toilets immaculate , dog friendly as well! Good value too, will definitely return, we have been eating in portpatrick on our visits to this area in campervan , but this place is far better, well worth the 20 min drive there.

This hotel/restaurant is in a lovely little village and is very tranquil. Had dinner with friends and the restaurant itself is very nice, service was good until the main course and I was almost finished my meal before the new potatoes were served. The girl said they forgot. Anyway the meal was very good and value for money. The staff... More

Stayed for three nights at the end of May 2014 as a couple with our dog. Room was spacious, clean, warm and comfortable. We ate at the hotel on all three nights of our stay and the food was very good. Ate in the bar area as we had our dog with us although we were able to leave the... More

Took two friends to Tigh na Mara for the early bird dinner on Sunday. Thoroughly enjoyed the meal - food was excellent quality and good portions - sometimes you find the early dinners scimp a bit on quantity but not here. Friendly staff and attentive service. Would definitely recommend it to everyone.

I've eaten twice here lately and would definitely recommend it - the food is fabulous and the service is great without being stuffy. The staff are really friendly and there is a lovely relaxed atmosphere to the place.

Myself and my husband returned to the Tigh Na Mara in Sandhead for what has become an annual visit for us and once again we thoroughly enjoyed our visit. We love this area and it is a beautiful drive down from the central belt. We always stay in the log cabin, which, while not huge, is a lovely, cosy room... More

This an excellent base to explore this part of Scotland - for us by car - for others there are good walks and it seems that 'twitchers' are in their element in this area! (packed lunches are available from the hotel if you are going out for the day) The hotel is small, superbly (family) run and welcoming smiles are... More

Beautiful place, good value and the food here is exceptional, visit here very often when we come around this way. Keep up the good work. Nice modern dining room and why not go into the bar afterwards for a wee dram at the bar beside the fire. Very welcoming
