We had decided on a quiet holiday using Portpatrick as our base and stayed at the Fernhill Hotel. This is superbly situated overlooking the harbour and most rooms have a seaview well worth the small extra charge. We were blessed with fine weather for the whole of our eight night stay. The restaurant has perhaps the best view along with... More

Breakfast was excellent and service really good. View from reception and dining room was enjoyed by everyone. Perfect for golf stay as Dunskey a 2 minute walk

This was the third year in a row that we have stayed at the Fernhill and I still cannot find any faults. Portpatrick is a lovely place and to sit and look at the view across the harbour whilst enjoying really good food in the restaurant is a pleasure. The rooms are very well equipped and comfortable, but I suggest... More

Get a window table for dinner. If sun going down great views.Staff friendly and helpful. We stayed in cottage. Comfortable enough if needing refreshed. Hotel has limited choice of beers... More

We love Portpatrick but have never been able to stay here. For our honeymoon, we decided to make an exception and booked a 4 night stay. We were offered a sherry upon checking in and shown to our room with amazing views over the harbour. The decor isn't the most modern but everything was clean and the view out of... More

A great wee break again at Fernhill. Great food in dining room that overlooks the bay, Found the waiting staff to be helpful and friendly. Room too overlooked the sea. Although a bit tired, it was clean, warm and the power shower is really powerful! All in all a great base for a holiday!

We spent a couple of nights here with friends. The room needed some TLC with its ripped fabric chair which was not a good first impression. The Service was acceptable but pedestrian . We did not think it was value for money. Needs to up its game or lower its prices.

Spent a lovely night at this older but beautiful hotel with amazing views over the sea and enjoyed breakfast in the conservatory with stunning views of the sea . In the morning we we went along the costal walk towards the lighthouse. Quite taxing walk with a few climbs but well worth the effort.
