We ate early here on a Saturday in October before attending a wedding reception. The food was absolutely gorgeous - the pear and parsnip soup was so lovely and will be on our Christmas menu for the family. I also chose the lobster which was absolutely wonderful too. Definitely a return visit next time we are in the locality.

Being part of a large group filming for the BBC here, we had a great stay. Friendly staff, good food. Nice warm rooms on a windy cold day... And being a Londoner the FREE wifi, is a home comfort I couldn't live without.

It would be a great place for romantics walks in the fresh sea air.

Early October in Portpatrick, went to the Waterfront on the strength of other reviews on tripadvisor. A very nice dining room with very nice staff Food was excellent,whitebait to die for,scallops,seabass all excellent,what a shame then that our experience was ruined by a large part of ignorant men on a nearby table who were hell bent on spoiling the evening for the other diners who were all as equally mortified as us at the carry on!!
The management should not take paties like this at any cost as this will soon turn out to be some considerable cost to themselves as people like us will look to Campbells and the Crown to supply our needs. Could have been a one off?

Although we did not stay at this hotel, we dined in their restaurant for dinner. We found the food and service to be very good. We enjoy good seafood and were happy to find expertly prepared fresh local seafood here. I would highly recommend the hotel restaurant but would also recommend that you book a table if you will be there on the weekend.

Stayed here for 3 nights dinner bed and breakfast. Rooms are tiny but the food staff and heart of the place make up for this. Dinner was outstanding! Seafood choice - langoustines, mussels, lobster, sea bass, calamari, crab all sourced locally were cooked to perfection as was chefs homemade lemon tart! Just amazing.

Great location, staff really friendly and nothing seemed any trouble.

Would definitely return!

This is our 3rd year attending Portpatrick music festival and staying at the Waterfront Hotel. Our stay was once again most enjoyable.We are a group of 6 and we all agreed that the food was first class and the staff could not be more helpful.We have already booked for next year.

Room Tip: Try to get a room with sea view
