Stayed at this hotel on a coach trip . The village of Portpatrick is very picturesque, an ideal getaway . The hotel was very clean and comfortable. The food was excellent, with a variety of starters and main courses which were different every night. It was served by friendly staff and very quickly. I would not hesitate to recommend it.

We have just returned from a 4 day weekend with Shearings Holidays (It is a Shearings Hotel). The hotel was excellent. It has just been revamped. All the public areas have had a grey/black/silver make over and it looks superb. The meals were excellent too. The staff couldn't do enough for you. I would thoroughly recommend a stay here.

We stayed at this hotel from the 29th feb till the 3rd March, the hotel is looking tierd but is very clean, we found the staff to be nice friendly and good at there jobs. Meals were nice all hot the selection was nice and differant each night. My only complaint would be service to be to quick between courses. We went on a very wet and windy cold weekend and my only complaint to be the bathroom was so cold, you felt you were in the north pole, Had heaters on full blast. but yes we would go back in the nicer weather.

Had a 5 day all inclusive break at the Shearing's Portpatrick Hotel in March 2007, we were a party of 4 over 50's.
Although the hotel could do with a modern overhaul, it was very well maintained, everything clean and tidy. Our rooms were quite spacious and had everything we needed. Meals were excellent, especially the evening dinners, great variety and the staff could not do enough for you, first class. Drinks were included in our price from 6 to 11 pm. also in adjoining lounge, a tribute singer was on stage, most were pretty good. The hotel is well off the beaten track and the area is quite hilly, therefore not suitable for
persons with walking difficulties. there are no shops near to the hotel, Stranraer is the nearest town for shopping. There are a few pubs/hotels in the Portpatrick bay, all served very good lunches. Definitely a good short break for good food and quiet.
We will certainly go there again in the near future.

4 of us (ages 3@ 50 1 @ 60) stayed in March 2006 for 4 nights on an all inclusive short break. Staff very helpful and obliging. Meals excellent, a great variety at dinner. A small packed lunch was also available (free). All drinks were included in the evening from 6 til 11. Very good service in bar. Nightly entertainment was ok - was definitely geared up for the older generation, which obviously suited our party. We will definitely stay here again.
Walking access to hotel is not for anyone with walking disability, as it is very steep. Views are great and lunches in the town were pretty good and reasonable. No shops to speak of, had to go to Stranraer for any serious shopping, nevertheless enjoyed the peaceful break.

I booked this hotel as a cheap short break away. On arrival at hotel it looked very dated and in need of refurbishment. Reception staff were quick but impersonal. We were given a room on the 1st floor that although basic was clean. however previoulsy must of been a smoking room as it was heavily stained and smelled of smoke. Facitlities in room were basic. The shower being a nightmare to use.

As part of our stay breakfast and dinner for both nights was included but due to the terrible food and lack of choice on the menu not to mention the poor service from staff we decided not to dine in the restaurant our 2nd night.

The hotel itself has lovely views down onto Portpatrick harbour but not for the faint hearted as the walk is down a very steep hill. The hotel is very obvioulsy catering for the older person market and as such the entertainment was for that same market.

The bar in the hotel is cold and unwelcoming. All in all i would not stay in this hotel again and I would not recommend this hotel to anyone.
