Dating back to the 1800s, The Downshire Hotel in Portpatrick looks out to sea on Scotland’s west coast. A 15-minute drive from Stranraer, it has a bar and restaurant and offers free parking and Wi-Fi....
Score from 20 reviews Very good
Rough, and uncleaned
the staff was very nice, and everyone we met in stranraer were very nice people
The whole atmosphere. It was like staying in a private home. Nothing was any trouble.
Location is the only good thing about this place.
Everything except the location, the Communual Shower room looked vile ie: old damp stained at toilet area lino, old shabby toilet and basin,mouldy shower area, so much so, we did not use it at all, the flooring within the building was squeaky and the stairs slanted to one side, part of the handrail was missing, the carpets were sticky and well worn,the furniture and decor in the entire building is in dire need of replacing, No light in the Carpark, pitch black could not see a thing,
It was available at the last minute, after staying there we know why. Host was congenial and appeared almost apologetic. Catching an early morning ferrying Cairnryan the location was good as it was only 10 minutes away in a most direct route.
Rooms are situated above an old pub, where a very loud and drunken going away party was being held. The rooms looked like something you might see in an unkempt hostel. The shard bathroom was in fact filthy.
The barman/host was so pleasant, and our dinner from the kitchen was delicious and so unexpected, quesadillas from a British kitchen?! We were very tired of fried food, so this was so nice. Also artfully presented. Large parking area. Best TV of anywhere we had stayed in the past 6 months. Wifi was also good.
Never too crazy about noisy late-arriving guests, but not the hotel's fault. Never enjoy bath or toilet-sharing, but that is to be expected in an old inn and at this price.
On arrival feared the worst as the exterior of the pub had seen it's best days but we pleasantly suprised at the cleanliness and good standard of food and was happy with the stay. Friendly helpful staff.
never seen a House like that, toilette and Shower unusable, private parking offered, must park Motorbikes on the mainroad in front of the Pub / Hotel, touched and damaged by Teenager Guests. sleep not possible, People playing football 3 in the night, Stranraer Ghostcity deleted from my Map
Shower unusable,,,,,,, carpets dirty,,,,, breakfast horrible,,,,, other guests felt the same,,,, wouldnt even give it one *
Everything, this is the worst place I have ever stayed. The bathroom is dirty, moldy and falling apart. The carpet through out the hotel is filthy. The room I stayed in had a hole in the floor and cigarette smoke was billowing in. I complained and nothing was done. It was a nightmare
The room was reasonably priced compared to others, but what you get for your money is not much...
Toilets are shared which we knew before we booked, however they are in very poor condition, one had a very dodgy seat, another was also a storage place for various items including a fold up bed and boxes of UHT milk. Walls in particular in the room were not clean, and under the sink was awful! The bar below where you check in and pay felt very uncomfortable when we walked in, however we got our room safely - despite the lack of lock on the door from the bar to the rooms. We settled down for the night and shortly after began the procession of boy racers which went on for SIX HOURS. Did not sleep well at all. The room had no kettle so had to use the breakfast room where the milk and bread were out of date. Will not stay again
This is the total junk place, the staff don't have any respect for gusts, they don't bother to talk to them or do any service, its like go thr sleep and get out next day morning by keeping the keys on thr reception and no dog will be thr in the reception. cheap but third grade place i must say.. no cleanliness at all floors are all sticky and smelly..
everything .. even if you try you can't like anything ..
- we needed a night's stay near the ferry port; this served the purpose at a low price - guy who checked us in tried to be as helpful as possible
- no clear place to check in - extremely poor security - front door of inn apparently left wide open, unlocked all night (we checked out early before staff arrived as agreed to meet our ferry, leaving our key in the room, and walked straight out without opening or unlocking a single door) - very dilapidated condition of bedroom and bathroom - uncomfortable bed - bathroom facilities (combined toilet and shower) shared between 5+ rooms - bed bug bites discovered the next day - extremely noisy with people and music in the bar until late - only on street parking out the front; when asked if it was ok to park there we were told it would be better to move it away from the door in case a drink person fell into it
Room was lovely
Shower room/toilet in desperate need of upgrade/redecoration
Helpful and relaxing staff, also having the privacy of going straight to my room or going to the bar downstairs.
The food in the bar was excellent
The staff were friendly
Theres no ensuites the toilet and shower were at the end of the corridor note the Toilet was in the shower room. Theres no lounge downstairs just the bar, kids have to be out at 9 the place is a wreck. Sorry.
the location is great, and staff are very friendly, it was clean and comfortable, and even though we didn't pay for breakfast we were told to helpourselves to tea, coffee and toast in the morning
there's nothing I didn't really like, it can be a bit noisy if your at the back, but we expected that, we closed the window and it helped,
Staff were friendly and location good
Shared bathroom was in need of an upgrade and would be nice to have separate wc when sharing with 4 other rooms.
