We were met on arrival. The property was spotlessly clean and well equipped. Staff were on hand to answer any queries or to deal with any issues. We enjoyed lovely September/October weather so were out and about a lot. The apartment was warm and easy to manage.

“Fantastic holiday homes”
Reviewed August 29, 2015 for a stay in August 2015
1
person found this review helpful

This is our second visit to the Downshire Hotels's holiday homes. On this visit we stayed in the Skye , two bedrooms one ensuite with a further bathroom upstairs and a small toilet downstairs. Modern decor, lovely and warm with plenty of storage. As we travelled as a group of women it was ideal that the beds could be requested as singles. The kitchen is well equipped with fridge freezer, dishwasher, hob and oven, microwave etc. The location is perfect, only one min stroll from the sea front and with a well stocked store across the street. Live entertainment at the weekend in the Downshire's well stocked bar which also serves tasty bar meals. Portpatrick is a beautiful seaside town which is surprisingly lively at the weekends. Once again we had a wonderful stay and if returning to Portpatrick would look no further than the Downshire, fantastic accommodation and great staff who go that extra step to make sure everything is perfect during your stay

“Great localtion, lovely area and good quality accomodation”
Reviewed August 8, 2015 for a stay in July 2015

The cottage was clean and the furnishings of a good quality. The beds were comfortable and we all slept really well.Being right in the town was great. There is a well stocked shop just opposite the cottage and plent of good places to eat with a few minutes stroll. The beach in the town is also nice and if the wetaher had been warm enough, would have been good for swimming.
Beatiful area to explore - especially the gardens.
The kitchen could have been better equipped - onlty one saucepan and no grater. We would have liked a cafitierre or some sort of cofee maker.
Our one word of advice would be to be very careful when parking round the back as we got stuck in the gravel and had to be towed out!

Reviewed July 22, 2015 for a stay in July 2015

Really modern spacious and clean. Fully stocked with all kitchen supplies and towels etc. Lovely setting next to the water and right across from little shop. Wi-fi a little temperamental however would not stop me from coming back.

“Jura”
Reviewed April 8, 2015 for a stay in April 2015
1
person found this review helpful

We stayed in the Jura accommodation which had 2 bedrooms, bathroom, open plan living/dining and kitchen with a downstairs toilet.
The accommodation was lovely - very well equipped and furnished with wooden floors and modern furniture. The location was just a short walk from the harbour.
The only downside for us was the wifi did not work - we booked the property as this is important to our sons. Also although the kitchen was well equipped more mugs/cups and side plates would have meant less washing up and more use of the dishwasher

3 friends staying for 2 nights had a lovely stay. Accom was v spacious, immaculate, beds were comfy, lots of heaters available, brand new kitchen with mod cons. Shower was hot and clean towels available. Perfect location right across from the shop, next to pubs and seafront. Parking round the back. Staff were friendly and v helpful. Allowed us to check out an hour later at no extra charge.
