The Crown Hotel is a charming and welcoming hotel in the heart of Portpatrick. You enter through the public bar where you can enjoy a pint and some good pub food. Reception is a table behind the bar area. On first impressions it is an old fashioned pub which is definitely in need of some redecoration and refurbishment.
We asked for a room overlooking the harbour and were given room 6 on the second floor. The room must be one of the smallest we have ever stayed in with a single wardrobe, bedside cabinet, drawer unit, small double bed, wall mounted TV and nowhere to put your luggage. Manoeuvering around the room was not helped by the camsile ceiling. It was clean and had an excellent modern bathroom with a great shower. There was plenty of hot water after we had asked for it to be turned on.
As we stayed on a Friday there was entertainment in the busy, warm, friendly bar which is frequented by families, locals and tourists. In the morning we were served a tasty hot breakfast with a good choice. The poached smoked haddock was particularly good.
If you are looking for a small, friendly and quirky hotel then the Crown is the best in the area.
