Reviews


The Portpatrick Hotel

If you are coming to the south west coast of Scotland and looking to stay in a location that really makes the most of this wonderful destination, The Portpatrick has it all. Proudly standing on Galloway’s cliff tops, set in nine acres of attractive grounds, The Portpartick overlooks the harbour in a truly majestic position. The village is just a short walk away, where you’ll find welcoming pubs, enticing gift shops and an inviting public beach.

If you are attracted to the area by the many excellent golf courses, you will find Dunskey golf course very close by and the hotel also has its own 9 hole pitch and putt course, if you just want to try your hand. In the summertime, the hotel grounds and pleasant patio area are the ideal place to sit back, relax and watch the world go by.

Away from the hotel, this area is known for excellent walking and great gardens. At the nearby Glen Trool Forest Park, you’ll get a clear view of the sky unspoiled by artificial light. Other local attractions include Burns Cottage, Culzean Castle, Logan Botanic Gardens and the Mull of Galloway with its views to the Isle of Man. You can see Ireland on a clear day and it is an easy crossing over to Belfast or Larne from nearby Stranraer - a great option if you want to sample something a bit different during your stay.

A Warm Welcome To The Portpatrick Hotel…

Here in South West Scotland, we have the fortunate position that commands spectacular views which are second to none. The picturesque village is only a stroll away. For its size, it is a haven for fine eating and drinking in the many friendly bars and restaurants.

For the garden enthusiasts we have Logan Botanic Gardens, Castle Kennedy Gardens, Glenwhan Gardens and Dunskey Gardens all in the local area. There are many more if you wish to travel further afield in the Dumfries and Galloway area.

The more adventurous can take a trip to Belfast. This is a fantastic day out to a city which has been thriving in recent years. A visit to the Titanic museum is a must.

Along with cliff walks, bird watching and numerous golf courses, there is plenty for those who love the outdoors.

What some of our guests have to say…

Customer Rating:

Thank you for a lovely stay. We loved the way that all your staff are so happy and helpful with nothing too much trouble. The views across the harbour from our room were magnificent and relaxing on your balcony with a drink from the bar was so pleasant. Running www.scottishrecipes.co.uk makes me sort of an expert on porridge and your chef makes the best I've tasted in a long time. All meals were plentiful and delicious, especially the duck and mushroom pudding with its enticing crunch. Great! xx

Customer Rating:

Stayed at the hotel with friends for a short break as we were celebrating birthdays. Having stayed at the George in Hexham earlier in the year we were delighted that standards were the same and we received the same excellent welcome and service at the Portpatrick. Had standard room with sea view, clean and comfy, the staff were great as was the food, well presented and delicious, even the weather was kind, I am sure that we will return in the future for another visit. Good value for money.
