We were greeted, on arrival by both mine hosts, Hilary and Tim, and immediately felt welcome. Tim carried our case and took us to our...

A great place: the owners couldn't have made us feel any more welcome: our room (the one en-suite) was huge, with a great view over the sea, and a comfortable bed. Full tea and coffee facilities with home-made shortbread, decent wi-fi, a decent TV, and an excellent shower. Parking great and secure, everything spotlessly clean, and only a short walk...

There is private parking available and the lovely gentleman...

Have stayed here in the past and again it did not disappoint. Room was of a good size and facilities are excellent. Breakfast is exceptional- and caters for all tastes. Personally I recommend the full Scottish breakfast which you will not get better in a five star hotel as it is all cooked fresh and served immediately- beats these cooked...

I had a most enjoyable stay at Hawthorn House. The standard of cleanliness was above reproach as was the catering. Tim and Hilary were attentive to exactly the right degree and I would recommend the establishment unhesitatingly to anyone seeking accommodation in the Port William area.
