I visited Portpatrick in July and stayed at The Portpatrick hotel on a wonderful unforgettable coach holiday, there were glorious views of the port from the hotel grounds and the hotel was one of the best I've stayed at in Scotland. I was fortunate to be there on the hottest day in 2016 on July 19 and enjoyed the scenery...

Shearings Holiday took me to the Portpatrick Hotel late October, through to Nov.4th 2016. Wonderful hotel- the self service breakfast was superb, and the evening meal, served at 15-minute intervals, from 18.15, were restaurant standard. The servers were young Scottish people of superb manners and helpfulness. One has to go a long way to have a hotel perched with such...

The hotel has gone through some recent refurbishment and feature two impressive lounges, one featuring a TV and the other is used for entertainment. There is also a bar area. There is also a spacious seating area in the reception area which unfortunately, is the only...

The Portpatrick Hotel is a grand old building on the cliffs overlooking the harbour. It really is an enchanting place with turrets and really looks the part. The only reason I gave it 3 stars rather than 5 is because the apartment we stayed in although clean was a little outdated. The carpets have stains on that cleaning cant take...

Booked this hotel for a last minute Friday night stay. The hotel was very clean and nicely decorated. Our room was a turreted one on the first floor with glorious views of the harbour and countryside. As it was booked at a reduced rate we presumed we would have had a basic room.....not at all. It was larger than average...

This hotel has stunning views of Portpatrick village and bay, with lovely sunsets, given the weather. The hotel itself is badly in need of a facelift and a little updating. Our room was acceptable, and, though it didn't have a sea view, the view outside was fine. The walls were in need of a paint and the windows were really...
