“Hotel in desperate need of upgrade”
Reviewed 2 December 2007

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.
