We have stayed at other Shearings Hotels and so when we wanted a hotel with all round good quality relaxing without having to do anythng we chose Portpatrick and we definately were not disappointed. We upgraded to a Superior room which we though was a bit expensive but the size of the room and the views were excellent. The room itself was very good but the only thing which hadn't been upgraded were the windows which were old wooden sash windows in poor condition. The bed and quilt were comfortable, the roo was warm wih the option of 2 elctic radiators as well. House keeping was also very good.
The meals were of a reasonable quality, you know they are catering for large numbers so you accept the table d'hote menu has to be prepared in advance. Having said that, we thoughly enjoyed all our meals. We had the option of ordering from the a la catre menu but nver did because we were happy with the table d'hote. Service was always good although I know why some people have said the staff are laying up tables as they serve you.
The entertainment was also good but I was surprised it was not laid on every night as in other hotels we have stayed at. Portpatrick is a good base to explore Galloway and we enjoyed a trip to Belfast. We walked down to the village which has some lovely pubs and restauants.
To summarise we had a lovely week, the hotel lived up to expectations, the staff were great and we would cetainly recommend it to our friends.
