Reviewed February 27, 2012

Visited PortPartick for the 1st time ♥ Gorgeous ♥
Stayed at The Waterfront Hotel for one night with my hubby (wish it was longer) Able to park in the designated street parking area facing the hotel. First impressions - Lovely, bright, modern and friendly.
On check-in, shown to a lovely bright, spotlessly clean, modern room (over looking the bay) by a lovely chatty local girl. Room was good size, bright, modern and fresh with all mod cons (kettle, hair-drier) FABULOUS comfortable bed. Lovely fresh, crisp bed linen. Room is en-suite, it is a tiny wee cute, well equipped, en-suite but it fitted my larger than life hubby ;) and the shower was great with lovely fluffy towels,
Lovely Polish couple on duty in the evening. Very attentive throughout our meal and everything was lovely. Food was delicious and enjoyable.
Breakfast was spot on. Served in a small bar area with a welcoming fire/burner. The portions were plentiful and it filled a gap.
Over all, The Waterfront is a lovely wee hotel with staff who are friendly and polite and do their job well. The managers should be very proud of these staff :)
Definitely be back. Thank You ♥

Room Tip: Room 1 is lovely. Faces the sea and has 2 beautiful window seats.

You couldn't wish for a warmer welcome from David, Geraldine & all the staff at the Waterfront. Once again we enjoyed a fantastic Hogmanay dinner, with an innovative & tasty menu, which offered a varied selection to suit all tastes, at a reasonable price. We will definately be booking again !

What a warm welcome and Hogmanay party we had at the Waterfront Hotel! We had such a good stay, we have already booked for next year! The food was excellent and the attention was first class. Although the rooms were small, they were very tidy and cosy and the staff made us feel at home. The staff were so helpful they even found my lost earring under the bed for me. David and Geraldine were very proffessional and caring in their approach to the gests' at the Hotel! A very well done to the staff at the Waterfront Hotel and We look forward to seeing them all again in August!

Room Tip: Book the front see veiw rooms!

We have just spent three nights over the new year at this fantastic hotel. The saying "Hidden Gem" simply does not do it justice. The staff are simply excellent. Nothing is too much trouble. David and Geraldine are perhaps the most welcoming and genial hosts you could wish to meet and the standard of food and level of service was simply superb.

Add this to the beautiful little village of Portpatrick and this is a location to savour. Highly recommended.

Room Tip: The rooms are small but are very clean and well equipped.

Much as we don't stay in the hotel it was yet again another great night at the Waterfront! As a group of friends we book and take over an entire Guest House but eat in the Waterfront on New Years Day. We were 8 Glaswegians facing the might of the Durham group - we held our own and had a great party,singing along to some fantastic songs; with the other diners and party from Yorkshire happily joining in. As usual food was excellent with spectacular service. The owners David & Geraldine, plus Manager Anne + Magdalene and waiting staff all ensured everyone was well looked after and joined in the fun at every opportunity. So good we're already booked for next year - year 3 for our group.
