My partner and I visit Galloway on a yearly basis and this year decided to try out Sandhead (thanks to the lovely beaches especially). Since the last time we were there, an "early bird" menu has appeared which is full of great choices. My partner had the Roast of the day which was very nicely presented and I had the... More

My wife and I had a short four night stay in Aug 2014 and really enjoyed the whole experience, food very good indeed, staff and locals very helpful and friendly. Small family run hotel with a warm welcome and cosy environment, I recommend tigh-na-mara wholeheartedly. Give it a try, disappointed? I don't think you'll put that word in your review!... More

We stayed here end of August 2014 after trying to find somewhere last minute at 9pm because another hotel had double booked, when we phoned they were friendly, and very helpful! Only a short drive from Cairnryan it was very easy to find. We didn't get there until 2130 so the resutrant was finished which was the only upsetting thing... More

Stayed here for one night on the 18th June. Staff are very pleasant. Showed me where my room was. Had a nice meal at the night even though I had to leave a part of it as I'm only a light eater but really enjoyed it anyway. Room was lovely but the view wasn't absolutely perfect I was overlooking the... More

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
