    House was lovely. The beds and the bathrooms were spotless. The furniture in the upstairs sitting/games room was comfortable but a bit tired. The kitchen was very well equipped but the oven was in need of a clean as did the cooker hood. This was actually quite a big let down for me, as lockdown was just easing, restaurants weren’t open and Portpatrick didn’t have any takeaways, therefore we had no other option but to cook or drive into Stranraer.The windows and upstairs glass balcony were filthy, Keeping in mind The house had sea views a clean window would have been nice!! The pool table and bar were a nice addition. The hot tub is around the back of the house and was lovely although wasn’t terribly private as the house behind looks directly onto it. All in all this is a lovely house, just a couple of minutes walk from the harbour. I think the house could be fabulous with a little more TLC!! Portpatrick is a lovely wee place, would definitely visit again.

    Looks tired and could do with a freshen up. Furniture a bit worse for wear and only one toilet has a working lock. The rest looked as if they had been kicked apart. Windows and doors upstairs rattled a fair amount due to the wind and the same for the large window by the dining table downstairs. Various scrapes along the walls and furniture looks as if it has been well used. The pool table was unplayable and there was only one cue which hadn't been snapped. It was clean however and beds were comfortable, but it needs attention to put right various issues and for the amount we paid we felt it was too much. Hot tub wasn't the cleanest and it was too exposed to the rain. If we had known this before booking, we would have gone elsewhere.

    We stayed as a group of 12 in Military Drive overall the house served us well. As others have mentioned some tlc is required . The large part of the oven didn’t work there are several heaters in the house not working although additional heaters were supplied when we raised this issue . The house is well located as a base to explore the area and a great family house . A little tlc would make it perfect.

    Situated in at lovely little fishing village of portpatrick- couldn't fault the area. The house its self was ok, the bathroom and ensuits were really clean and modern. However we felt the rest of the house needed a slight refurb. The mattresses were un-comfortable, bedroom doors and en-suit doors did not close completely, the hot tub was OK but the Bluetooth speakers were broken and the lid was kept on with house bricks, there also should of been chemicals left to top up the hot tub. The pool table was broken and had to keep finding the balls that kept getting stuck. When we first arrived there was a few heaters in rooms that didn't work but the owner quickly sorted that out for us so couldn't fault his help. We had the neighbours knock on and tell us to move the cars off the drive as it's a shared drive (we were not informed of this) And finally the general condition of the decor felt like it just needed a good paint throughout. We made the holiday the best we could but felt if you wanted a quick get away then this place would be fine, but for a large family I don't feel it's the right property at the moment until work is completed.

    Perfect location and views within the house. Bar area and pool table a great addition. Very spacious bedrooms and plenty of bathrooms. 10 minute walk down to the harbour. Our only complaint was the cooker and cooking facilities were not very efficient especially with 11 people to feed. And the very creaky stairs. Otherwise we had a wonderful time 

    8 military drive property was fantastic. I had read some reviews about the oven, towels and hot tub not being great but I was delighted to see these had all been sorted. The property has great space both upstairs and down, everything was very clean and it’s very we’ll equipped. The kitchen is fantastic and also has a utility room so this was great for storage as we had a lot of food and drink with us and the American fridge freezer was extremely useful. The hot tub seats 4 people comfortably and was great. We did go to the crown hotel for dinner one night which was fabulous. I Would absolutely recommend this property.

    Hard floors in the kitchen and living areas were sticky when we arrived. Multiple light bulbs were out and had to be replaced by ourselves. Some of the facings and skirting boards had come away from the walls. The towels provided were either stained or had holes in them. Only one of the ovens on the cooker worked which made making a large meal difficult. And there were limited pans etc. The hot tub had parts missing and bits broken. Also it was not situated where it is shown in the pictures of the property.

    We had a lovely stay, the house has a lot going for it. It is spacious, the rooms are comfortable and the bathrooms are very good. However it does need some TLC. Towels with holes give a bad first impression. The downstairs toilet was out of order, downstairs blinds could not close, lock missing from bathroom, we couldn’t get the oven to work (an instruction book would help), poor selection of cookware, pots with no lids, lids which didn’t fit pots and a lot of plastic bowls with holes when one without would have been of more use. Instructions on what to do with rubbish would also be helpful, we were lucky that the bin collection happened on the morning we were leaving but we did leave recycling in the utility room. Having said all that I would still recommend this house, we all enjoyed our trip, Portpatrick is a lovely little town and an easy walk.
