Heather and I held our wedding here on 5th Feb 2014 (as well as experiencing numerous trips before) - the entire day was fabulous thanks to the friendliness and helpfulness of all staff - particularly Martha and Marko - highly recommended as a wedding venue for small intimate civil ceremonies, and for wedding receptions, as well as for a romantic trip away - beautiful setting, fabulous food - a hidden gem.

Couldn't recommend this hotel highly enough - nestled on the bottom of the ards peninsula and with views over strangford lough - recommend picking rooms 5 or 11 for the ultimate experience.

Perfect in both winter and summer - we will be making many more visits here - holds a special place in our heart.

Room Tip: 5 & 11 have 4 poster beds, look out over the lough. Choose a sea front room for the best views...

We have eaten Sunday lunch at this hotel on many occasions but this was our first time staying. it was excellent. from the receptionist on arrival through the bar staff, dining room staff etc etc nothing was too much trouble for anyone. How many times have you seen management walking past a problem before getting a member of staff to deal with it? not at this hotel . No member of staff seems to walk about empty-handed. An empty glass picked up here, a broken glass swept off the floor etc, it was all attended to promptly by staff and management alike.

We had an excellent meal and entertainment on New Year's Eve and woke up to find the same manager on duty for breakfast and the dining room spotless after the late night festivities. A spotless room with views of Stranford Lough added to the enjoyable stay.

My husband and I travel quite a bit for work so we have grounds for comparison. We found this a clean and comfortable hotel/room for our one evening. Important to us; clean,free wifi, REAL glasses and cups, with a good hotpot for our morning coffee. Our dinner was very good with well prepared salmon in the very quiet and warm bar. Best of all was our waiter and apparently main man Marko. Wonderful at dinner and then brought glasses and an opener to our room after dinner for our own bottle of wine. A nice place to visit and we would come again.

The Portaferry Hotel is welcoming and comfortable , with great views from front bedrooms , always request one of these. The food is good and the service efficient without being too pushy.Breakfast was nicely served instead of a buffer , all was freshly cooked.

We spent a lovely New Year's Eve dining and dancing in this lovely and uniquely welcoming hotel. Food was fantastic and we felt that everyone on the staff worked extremely hard to deliver a quality experience to their guests. George, Horia and Marko deserve special mention....nothing too much trouble !

Judging by the faces around us others felt the same way...much laughter and good humour prevailed.

This little hotel is a charming gem, the pearl of Portaferry.

My wife and I stayed here for 1 night (a Sunday) in November. We had booked a 4 poster room and were not disappointed at all. A very large spacious room with a comfortable 4 poster bed. Bathroom was small, with a small bath with shower over.

The view from the room was very nice, looking right over Strangford Lough.

Food in the hotel was excellent, we had both a snack lunch (soup and caesar salad) which was very good and then dinner in the Bistro (steak sandwich and seafood chowder) which was superb. The service was very good at both these meals. Breakfast in the morning was good, a freshly cooked Ulster fry rather than a buffet which is so prevalent nowadays in hotels. Service at breakfast was a little unfriendly but not a disaster!

The lounge area with a roaring fire was nice to sit in for a coffee or pre/post-dinner drink.

Overall a very relaxing stay in a very nice hotel.

Room Tip: Room 11 - very nice indeed, is a 4 poster room, not sure if it is the only one or not but very nice...
