I have been lucky enough to stay at this hotel for 12 years running......Yes that was 12 years! but this July was the first time that I had stayed with the greatess critic of all "My Wife!" For the last twelve years running every April I had visited this fantastic hotel as part of a golfing society. Every year the hotel and staff managed to surpass the previous year with their level of service & attention to detail. Food for 16-plus golfers was delivered on time to an extremely high standard & although the rooms were compact in size they serve their purpose. BUT the time came when my good lady put her size 6 down and requested a visit to the hotel which I had raved about for such a long time......And she was not disapointed. We were treated like royalty. Our seaview room gave a fantastic view point to enjoy the early morning sun rises. My wife being vegetarian was amazed when she was asked what she would like the chef to prepare for her evening meal! The food for both of us was truly devine & the wine/beer even better. So the moral of the story...if you only have one chance to stay in Portpatrick give the waterfront hotel a chance because you wont be let down. Thanks once again to Geraldine, David, Anne & all the staff. See you next year!
