One of the best bed and breakfast's I've stayed in. Spotlessly clean, very comfortable, everything you need and a superb breakfast. We enjoyed it so much we've booked for next Spring. Great location and can recommend the Crown Hotel for a meal which is only a few doors away.

Another excellent few nights in Portpatrick. Keith was a wonderful host, as usual, this was our 3rd visit. The en-suite room was spacious, clean and cosy. The complimentary Welcome Tray was so very welcoming and the biscuits just topped off the best cup of coffee. Thank you. We will defo be back again to visit the Port!

If you are visiting Portpatrick, I recommend you stay at Muirhead Guest House. Great location. Spotlessly clean. Breakfast is delicious. Keith, the host is so friendly and welcoming. This is our seventh visit and we are never disappointed.

An excellent B&B that I would highly recommend. Clean, fresh, bright and Keith who runs it couldn't be any nicer or helpful. He makes a mean breakfast too. This is a B&B we've used for 7 years and we'll continue to go back.

Stayed for two nights last weekend, couldn't fault Muirheads, Keith made us very welcome, the room was spacious and spotless as was the en-suite. Breakfast? Well we'd stayed in an upmarket hotel a week or two previously and the breakfast Keith serves was head and shoulders above that! We'll definitely be back.

Everything was so clean & tidy a real credit to Keith. Breakfasts were great and kept us going during the day. Keith made us very welcome and always has time to stand and chat.It is... More
