We found room 1 quite good and cosy. The staff was very friendly we decided to stay an extra night. The room was quiet seen as we are above a bar where was was. All staff are great and we enjoyed the breakfast.

Really warm friendly welcome with open fire and dog friendly. Recommended 5-7 is meal deal but sadly we'd already booked elsewhere in the village. Don't forget to add this village to your trip to the area, you won't be disappointed arrive at 3pm ready for the views of the sunset.

If you are looking for a meal in Portpatrick look no further than the Downshire early bird menu for £9.99 for two courses. We have been many times and are never disappointed. Of course you could choose something from the main menu if you prefer. Friendly staff will make sure you have everything you need. I would say the bar...

Our double room suffered from damp with the wallpaper pealing in places. The stair carpet was pretty grotty. The wireless didn't reach our 2nd floor room despite the helpful staff rebooting the router a couple of times....
