What a good weekend at Harbour House! Food was excellent ,staff went above and beyond call of duty and I must make special mention of Nicole who was just a darling.Makes such a difference to see smiling staff!! Rooms were great if a little dark.That would be due to weather and energy saving light bulbs.That is the only negative comment...

You could not fault the service of Nicole. Amazing service and customer care. Asked how my meal was, and I said that I was not happy with my steak pie. Dealt with the matter in the most professional manner. For £10 l expected a bit more than what was on my plate. It was dry and overcooked and I've never...

Very doggy friendly with really nice, well presented home made food. The staff are very friendly and helpful. The family room (number 4) looks over the harbour and is very clean, modern and spacious, the bathroom is nicely decorated and very clean.

OK you had to go outside for about 7 seconds to get into the hotel but that was not an issue. All the staff in the establishment are very...

We recently had two evening meals in the Harbour House. We were only in Portpatrick for three nights but our first meal was so good we returned the next night! The fish was lovely and fresh and the steak pie was real home made steak pie not some meat with a crust sat on top. The staff were all very...

We were in room 7 with a prefect view of "The Port" no trying to see out of a side window or almost a sea view, this was full HD. The television is not required. In the bay window are two perfectly positioned chairs,...

Really great place to stay. New management have made the hotel like brand new, beautiful views at dinner in the seaview conservatory and we got an upgrade from the hotel to one of three new apartments next door. Clean, spacious and a great break. Manager Joan couldn't have done more for us, lovely lady who really cares about her guests.

Great place to stay. So friendly and helpful staff. Especially Karen and manager Jude. Breakfasts fantastic and so are the dinners. Loved the sun room facing the harbour and dining with a view to die for ! Great bar and feel about the place as well as Portpatrick itself. We'll be back for sure 👍🏼👍🏼👍🏼
