I stayed at the Portpatrick Hotel for one night last weekend. I had booked through booking.com and requested a room with a sea view and was happy to pay to upgrade. The manager at the hotel phoned me and left a message to say he would see what he could do.. (it was worth the request to hear the Irish accent!) Anyway, I did get a room with an amazing sea view and I wasn't charged any extra for it (thankyou!) It was room 118 which someone on here as named as a room with problems. So the mattress wasn't the Ritz quality, but so what! The room was spacious, fantastic views, plenty of tea and coffee and good quality toiletries. The room was clean, I was really very happy with it. It's an old hotel, it has character and charm!
I had to login online and do some work whilst I was there. There is no wifi in the rooms, (but there is downstairs I believe) however, the phone/mobile broadband signal for '3' is more than excellent there and I tethered through my phone to get online.
Breakfast was great, finding a hotel that actually has a veggie breakfast on the menu is a rarity, but they do here and it was spot on. The waitress was pretty glum (think Olive from On The Buses lookalike ) but she was efficient.
I really enjoyed my stay at the Portpatrick Hotel and wouldn't hesitate to go back, The location is fabulous, the staff are friendly, the hotel is clean and spacious, the food is great. One thing missing, I didn't see a ghost! Can you fix it for me to see one next time please :)
