PROS: 1. Inexpensive 2. Location - Beside supermarket (although the house is literally in the supermarket carpark), Quays promenade, Entrance to Westport House and 1km from town centre CONS: 1. Unclean - On arrival, the house stank of cigarette smoke. We found toenail clippings on stairs and beside couch. There was makeup on one of the bed's pillow cases and... More

We stayed here for 5 nights recently a family of 2 adults and 1 child. The B and B was really quiet and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Westport. The breakfast was great and we will definitely return to this B and B.

Although our stay was only over nigh we were made very welcome and I had one of the best Full Irish in the morning! The Boffin Lodge is also conveniently located for easy access to both the Quay and town centre. We look forward to our next visit.

We stayed in one of the family rooms which was very spacious especially the bathroom. In a great position as its half way between the town and the quay. All the staff were very helpful and the breakfast was very good

I am currrently a guest in Boffin Lodge, Westport. It has surpassed all my expectations of a B&B. Rooms are spacious, amazing shower(!), heated towel rails, a very reasonable priced minibar and a really great breakfast. Lovely staff, friendly and efficient. I would give Boffin Lodge six stars if there was that option!

Bit of a walk into town but nothing that isn't manageable, and if you are interested in the harbour it is actually located between the town and harbour so may be suitable. Lots of breakfast options, and we thought ordering the night before was a good idea. Little fridge in the room with a small selection of goods which although... More

We stayed 3 days at Boffin Lodge during our 2 weeks travelling in Ireland and according to us this was the best B&B we stayed in. We had a spacious and tidy room. There was lots of choice for breakfast and all was very tasteful. We would recommend this B&B to everyone who's looking for a place to stay in... More

Room was very dated and depressing, but it was clean. On arrival the welcome was average. The place is located very close to the main road. If you are not on a budget, spend a bit more and give this place a miss

It is nearly 6 wks since this review was posted and the reason for my delay in my response warrants mentioning. On getting notified of the review I immediately sent a msg to Deborah from Adelaide thru Tripadvisor as I had no record of a Deborah staying or indeed anyone from Adelaide in the months leading up to this. I... More
