Mike’s Review of Fernhill Hotel, Portpatrick

21st July 2014 by  in Accommodation Reviews, Competition Winners

Riding into Portpatrick we found the Fernhill Hotel easily, we parked the bike up in the car park and walked into the reception.

WOW!

Fernhill Hotel Portpatrick View

The view overlooking the town from the huge window in reception blows you away. We were welcomed by a member of staff who gave us a complimentary sherry then showed us to our room, which also had an incredible view over the town, a big bathroom and a massive bed. We got the bike unpacked, arranged a time for our dinner then headed down to have a look around Portpatrick. It was still quite early so we got lunch from a chippy van at the harbour, looked round the shops and had a beer in a few of the seafront pubs.

At around half six we headed back up to the Fernhill for dinner. The restaurant is in the conservatory of the hotel. Everything about it was really impressive. Fergus, our waiter, was friendly, chatting about mountain biking with us. We treated our selves to a bottle of Sancerre to accompany the stunning food. It really was seriously enjoyable sitting in the conservatory. HB ordered a fish dish and I had chicken, which was perfectly cooked.
After our meal we headed back down into the town to watch a band in one of the pubs. After a great sleep in the gigantic bed we tucked into a great breakfast before loading the bike up and heading off.

We both really enjoyed the Fernhill Hotel, it gets a full five chainsaws.
