The Harbour House Hotel
Ranked #9 of 14 Portpatrick B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 26 July 2016

So the Harbour Hotel is as the name suggests, right on the beautiful little P=harbour of Portpatrick and we really liked the stay. The bar is nothing fancy but comfortable and entertaining. The hotel room we had was spacious, really comfortable, model and well kitted out. The view was perfect too.
All in all we had a lovely stay that ended with an awesome breakfast! We'd love to return one day.

Food wasn't great, we were served a steak pie that looked like it came from a school canteen, bread was served without butter and the veg had been frozen and microwaved. Service was slow and could have been friendlier. The location and view, however, was amazing.

Harbour hotel on the front of a beautiful little village, stayed 4 nights last week and had a lovely time. Views from our room were fantastic unfortunately the weather wasnt kind to us and we only had 2 days of dry weather.
Breakfast very good, but one of the girls who served at breakfast did make us feel a little uncomfotable as she was asking for cooked breakfast order while we were still eating cereal, she seemed to be running around at 10 miles an hour, slow down girl, lol.
Lunch and evening menus were good and reasonably priced, as was the drinks apart from soda water which they charged at £1.20 upwards.
Would have liked to have met the owners as they have had high praise on here, but dont think they were there or if they were we wasnt aware of them.
Was disapointed that we couldnt park at hotel as only 2/3 spaces at the side, on booking.com it does state parking available.
Overall a good time

Room Tip: ask for seaview no 8

We visited The Harbour House tonight. We arrived at 7pm with our 2 teenagers for a meal and sat in the bar area. We ordered starters and main meals. We asked at 7.50 as our main meal plates were being cleared if they were going to be putting the football on the TV in the bar - the girl went away to check and came back to say yes they were but under 18s were not allowed in the bar after 8pm.......surely we should have been told this as we sat down and placed our order.....? Would be interesting to see what they would have done if we had placed orders for desserts ....would our business be turned down or refused then.........? Doubt it. The place wasn't even busy - lots of free tables. We had to pack up quickly and leave. My husband's risotto was also hard and chalky- he didn't like to complain as my son's were treating us and he didn't want to embarrass them. Fish was lovely as were the burgers - shame about the service.

This is a classic hotel above, pub on the bottom floor. We stayed 2 nights and had wished we could have stayed longer. The hotel is in the middle of town, right on the harbor. It has wonderful food for both dinner and breakfast.
