“Perfect if you want to relax in peace and quiet.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 June 2009

We spent four nights here mid-May, and although the weather could have been better, the welcome we received was warm and friendly. Lovely room at the front, which looked out over the putting green and had glimpses of the sea only 100 yards away. It was also light and airy, with a big bay window, and a deliciously powerful shower! We couldn't fault the breakfasts, cooked to order by mine host, and more than enough to set us up for a day site-seeing. This is only a B&B, but there are plenty of places to get an evening meal within a few hundred yards of the guesthouse, all equally welcoming and reasonably priced. If you want pretty coastal scenery and an away-from-it-all break, this is the place!

Having been to Portpatrick on numerous occasions, we decided to stay, after perusing tripadvisor, we came across the Muirhead guest house, and booked for 2 nights, it was fabulous! and it was in a ideal location for all of the shops and pubs.
The room was clean and tidy and had all the mod cons including the best power shower I have every used!, the breakfast was tasty and filling, and nothing was to much trouble for the hosts Duncan and Marie, we hope to go back soon.

The Muirheads Guest House is just 100 metres from Portpatrick's harbour. Our room was large, warm, bright and , like the rest of the house, tastefully furnished. Lovely cotton bed linen and a decent sized shower room with power shower and loads of hot water. We had a very friendly welcome from Duncan and Marie and the breakfast is excellent - lots of cereal, fresh fruit and yoghurt followed by whatever you want cooked to perfection. This is excellent value for money. We can thoroughly recommend it.

We have just returned from a lovely weekend at the Muirhead guest house, Portpatrick. Its location is superb - right in the heart of the village but in a lovely quiet area. We had a large, en-suite double room with views over the putting green. The accommodation was modern and spotless with all of the home comforts you could need. Breakfast was great and the hospitality excellent.

We have been fortunate to visit the lovely fishing port of Portpatrick a number of times, and have stayed at differing hotels and b&bs. By far the BEST standard is The Muirhead Guesthouse at 5 Blair Terrace, a stones throw from the sea front. The rooms are beautiful, all finished to a luxurious standard, all ensuite with fabulous showers,TV and tea/coffee making facilities. Nothing is too much trouble for the friendly hosts Duncan and Marie who are most welcoming and able to offer plenty of useful local information. We will definitely be back to stay here on our next visit - we are especially looking forward to the fabulous breakfasts!
If you find yourself visiting this beautiful port, take our word for it and stay here - you won't be disappointed.
