“Wonderful”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 25, 2012

I have no idea why there are any negative comments about the harbour mill apartments, we went to the Westport music festival the weekend just gone and I have to say from start to finish we had a great time, the staff are so friendly and helpful they couldn't do enough for us. The apartments are spotless well aired and as a lovely touch they place a small carton of milk in the fridge to kick start your morning with a cuppa so your not rushing to the market for fresh milk. There is everything you need as a home from home. We will be going back to westport soon and for next years festival and be staying in the harbour mill for sure. Well done harbour mill and thank you

Room Tip: Ask for room 302, 303 ect on that side as the views are great

We chose these apts to base ourselves to see the West Coast in 3 days with Aussie friends who r here on hols & it was picture perfect , and the cost was very reasonable .
We loved the kids corner & wine bar all in one !!
Our only comment to suggest improvement would b that a bigger living space in the apt would have been better for 2 families sharing a 3 bed apt ......

Dear Guest.
We were delighted to read of your experience at The Harbour Mill apartments and so grateful that you took the time to write a review. Unfortunately due to the layout of the building the living space is smaller in the Sleep 6, if you do not require the third bedroom I would recommend booking one of our Harbour View sleep 4 on your next visit. It has a bigger living space.
We look forward to welcoming you back to The Harbour Mill in the future.
Kindest Regards

We have just returned from a fantastic week in Westport in The Harbour Mill...we stayed here years ago as a couple and loved the apartments then. We returned with our three year old and had an even better stay, as both the Harbour Mill and Westport are so well equipped for children.
The apartments are very clean and although the soft furnishings have been recently updated, the bathrooms are a little tired...But that doesn't matter as the rest of the facilities are superb!
The apartments have a fab playroom that our little one loved, and they have a little wine bar attached to this where tired parents can also relax..it's the perfect solution!!! Westport House is a fantastic local attraction, the bike hire was fun, and on the rainy days the swimming pool in the town provided great entertainment! Everyone we met was so friendly and welcoming. Oh, and we also availed of the Harbour Mill's babysitting service on one night and one of the employees herself, the lovely Ashling, entertained our 3 year old...She was fantastic and would highly recommend! In terms of food, we had our most gorgeous lunch at the Tavern in Murrisk (at the foot of Croagh Patrick).
We all agree this was one of our best holidays yet...knocking the socks off some foreign holidays we've previously had...Here's to the 'staycation'!!!! Thanks Harbour Mill!!!!

We had a great experience with Harbour Mill. We stayed for a week and the price was very good value. Our appartment was spacious and spotless clean. The receptionists were very friendly and helpful. The playroom was very well equipped and kept our little one amused on many occasions. The location of the appartments is ideal - just a few minutes outside Westport and from many of the beaches around. So all the boxes were ticked for an enjoyable family holiday!

Arrived on a Saturday and stayed for a week. Apartment was perfect size and had everything you would need and very clean. Staff at reception were lovely and very helpful.

We would definitely go back here. We liked it so much we stayed the extra night at the end of the week and doing this was no problem.

I stayed here with friends last weekend we found the staff excellent very helpfully with where to go eat and even where to get discounts (as found Westport bit pricey to eat in) it was great to have a 24 hour reception in an apartment block. The apartment was spacious and the decor was lovely it exceeded our expectations and had everything we needed. It was also just a short stroll from Westport House (where you should try the zorbing!!) Further from the centre of town than i remembered but we were blessed with the weather so walking in was no problem. The green area across from the apartment s was great to sit and relax in too. we got discount vouchers to come back which I thought was a fantastic idea and we will be back..
