Stayed here on a very good deal including dinner. View from the reception area is wonderful, and we got a lovely, spacious room with the same view - well worth asking for. Very warm welcome and a complementary sherry when we arrived.Dinner was a very good deal, with an interesting menu and good service. Nice cosy bar too.

Came here for Afternoon tea as a Birthday treat with my boyfriend when we were on holiday nearby. Was wonderful to enjoy the gorgeous views of Portpatrick and the sea whilst eating what was a really delicious and good value afternoon tea. 3 open sandwiches each, a yummy scone with clotted cream & jam, and a selection of cakes and...

Really nothing to fault during our 2 night stay. The food, as always, was excellent and good to see that the quality had not changed from an earlier trip in May of this year, This hotel is very warn and welcoming with the staff always ready to have a blether with you, should you so desire.

The Fernhill has a very welcoming ambience. The tone was set by the welcome drink when we checked in, and continued throughout our stay. The staff (all of them) are to be commended for contributing to the 'home away from home' atmosphere that pervades the hotel through their attentive and friendly approach. Our room was a good size, and was...

Having stayed for two nights, we can recommend this Hotel for all aspects of business. The Staff were so helpful and efficient on arrival and dining and bar staff looked after our every need. The Chef deserves a special mention as all meals were far above expectation. Our room, in the older building was spacious, if a little dated, but...

We walked up from the harbour to see the dinner menu. I had called the day before to ask about the menu as nothing is on line as the menu changes daily. The hotel is a bit tired and the receptionist a little brisk but the bar staff friendly and happily made cocktails which were nice. The dinner menu didn't...

We stayed for two nights here recently. It was a brilliant stay, couldn't fault it. We used portpatrick as a base and went to Belfast for the day. We were that tired when we got back that we just had our evening meal at the Fernhill, and it was fantastic. The food was well cooked, and the service was great....

14 of us went to Portpatrick to play golf and booked into the Fernhill. I called the hotel and they gave us a great price for the Saturday night. Must admit the service there is fantastic, from check in to check out it was faultless. Everyone was so welcoming and helpful. Rooms are comfortable, good sized and some great views....

We only stayed for one night but it was lovely, The Hotel itself is a bit tired round the edges and an evening fire in the bar would have been welcome, however all the staff were very friendly and helpful, the food was delicious - both evening meal and breakfast - and views were spectacular. We would definitely return.
