“Lovely Location”
Reviewed 4 September 2013

Stayed at the Fernhill for 3 nights on a DB&B basis. The food was lovely and a good choice. Our bedroom overlooked the town with views of the harbour. The bedroom was lovely and clean and lots of hot water but I thought the bedroom looked a bit jaded and could do with an upgrade along with some of the public and bar areas. Staff friendly. Good for car parking which is always a bonus. Would return again if visiting the area.

Room Tip: Definitely a Harbour View Room

Just back from a three for two break in beautiful Wigtownshire where the sun shone from morning to evening and the views were fantastic from the hotel and environs. Free Golf was part of the package and we took full advantage at three challenging courses.....great fun!
The Accomodation was very comfortable and the food from hearty Scottish breakfasts to excellent four course dinners was truly first class.....recommend the Lobster Feast, which although "extra" should not be missed. The wine list is comprehensive and reasonably priced and the bar area easily combines a quite drink or merry golfers!
The staff from front to back of house are obviously hand picked........top marks to them and to Fernhill. We will return.

Room Tip: Harbour and sea view is not to be missed.

Just taken the family to the Fernhill for a 3 day break. Used the 3 for 2 offer. The view from reception of Portpatrick Hatbour are just stunning. We were pleasantly surprised by the rooms. The staff were so friendly - all locals. We'll be back.

Wonderful hotel overlooking Portpatrick. Rooms were very clean and tidy and our rooms had terraces with great views. The staff, many of them young people, were absolutely superb throughout our stay and couldn't do enough for us. The welcome we received was very welcoming after a long journey. It was also an excellent base for playing golf on the 3 courses nearby.

Room Tip: Ask for a room overlooking the sea.

In all my 60 years this is the best hotel I have ever stayed in. The Hotel was clean and well maintained, the view from the room was simply fantastic and the room itself was spacious. The staff were very friendly, welcoming and professional. The food in the restaurant was fantastic and the service likewise. Needless to say we intend to go back. So if you are looking for a quality hotel while touring the lowlands of Scotland look no farther.

Room Tip: Ask for a room facing the bay

First ever trip to Port Patrick, stayed overnight in The Ferhill Hotel, what a fabulous time we had. The welcome to the hotel was friendly and warm, staff couldn,t do enough for you, from the free welcoming sherry, it was terrific. Hotel and bedrooms were extreemly clean and tidy, our superiour room complete with balcony was stunning, views were panoramic, large bed was very comfortable. Evening meal was superb, waiting staff very efficient. Breakfast delicious, with good choices. Will be back to stay again. Well Done To All Staff.

This is a lovely hotel, very clean and fresh decor with great views from the cliff top over the port. It has a very quiet, relaxing ambience throughout. Some may say lacking in atmosphere as there is nothing going on in the hotel, even the bar area is quiet and the dining room does not have any buzz during service.
But if you are looking for a quiet stay, then this is the place for you. The standard room was very well appointed, nicely decorated and had everything you would need for a short stay.
The food at dinner was good and both my wife and I enjoyed what we had. There was only a choice of 4 starters and 4 main courses which includes a vegetarian option.(not large portions but well cooked and presented) So a bit restricted in choice and certainly the chef is not going to be over stressed. The breakfast had a good choice and is served at your table which is far better than the usual buffet option at many hotels. The staff are very pleasant throughout.
All in all a very pleasant one night stay but I feel a bit over priced at £174.00 for a standard room DB&B. The 2 night offer is a much more realistic price at only about £60 dearer.
So if you are looking to chill out and enjoy Port Patrick then you could do worse than the Fernhill. If you are looking to let your hair down, you might want to try one of the hotels down at the waterside.
