Like everything in Ireland when the weather is good, everything is better. We stayed for two nights on the August bank holiday. Parking was tight but lift to apartment with three kids was great. The apartments are not amazing luxurious but very clean and not to good that your nervous of three kids jumping about in it. I read the reviews before leaving and bought door stoppers in the euro shop before leaving, worked great for the slamming doors,there fire doors to prevent fire smoke spreading so they automatically close so I wouldn't give out to much about them. The floor boards were annoying particularly when baby trying to sleep and us tiptoeing to the toliet.The vouchers from reception were great, two days for the price of one in wesport house . Great time there. We eat in the helm walking distance again lovely that it was so close. The play room beside reception area great, you don't feel guilty about having a well deserved glass of wine while kids play. So all in all we will be back.

We have recently returned from a short stay in Westport.

What an amazing town - a definite must see.

Our apartment on the top floor was very spacious with panoramic views of the harbour and far beyond.

The view isn't that great from the lounge as the roof structure is in the way.

Staff were all very helpful.

Lots of restaurants in walking distance

Spent a few fabulous days in Westport. We stayed 5 nights in the Harbour Mill. Excellent stay and the staff were more than helpful. As a party of 2 adults, 2 teens and an 11 year old we had plenty room in our apartment. Highly recommend using Harbour Mill as a base to explore Westport area. Some great restaurants within walking distance, the best one being the Helm which serves wonderful food. Would definetly choose Harbour Mill if we return to Westport.

We stayed at the Harbour Mill Apts in late July, and it was perfect for our family with two young children. From the time we arrived, and throughout our stay, the staff were extremely helpful and friendly. For example, we were even given access to our apt when we arrived a good bit earlier than the 4pm check-in time. The apartment itself was very roomy - 2 floors with bedrooms downstairs and living room/kitchen upstairs. I liked the fact that there was a small carton of milk and teabags/coffee sachet in the fridge when we arrived, very much appreciated. And when we realised the kettle wasn't working, we immediately received a brand new one (in box) from reception.

We made good use of the kiddie corner each evening after dinner, which our kids loved and had a nice selection of well looked after toys. We also availed of the pass to the local leisure centre for a swim one of the days, and used the Harbour Mill's discount card for the local pub The Asgard for dinner.

Lastly when we left, the reception staff had a little "pirate" gift bag for the kids, with a small colouring book, crayons and a lollypop. I thought this was a nice touch, and shows how they really go out of their way to cater for the guests with young families.

The only downside was that we had no phone reception with O2 anywhere inside the building, so had to walk outside to make calls. Wifi was available but not very strong signal.

But we will definitely be back - Great location and beautiful views over the Harbour, plenty of parking, and close to Westport House.

We found the staff very proactive in making sure our stay was comfortable and enjoyable. The flat was cosy enough, but definetly not luxurious. Not quite sure why there is no lift at the entrance, steep stairs at the entrance to get to reception. Overall though, the location and staff compensated for minor niggles.

Great location and nice spacious apartment. Most of the staff were lovely and couldn't do enough to make your stay as pleasant as possible.

Interiors and heating system quite dated and we never had enough hot water for showers.
Apartment was quite noisy in the evenings and we were kept awake by snoring neighbours . It would appear that the resorts insurance policies re: leisure access, discriminate against adults with learning disabilities. I am an autistic man in my mid-twenties and I had to be supervised by an older family member in the hot tub in case I had an accident. Needless to say, I was made to feel like a baby and would be put off revisiting the Harbour Mill in the future.

Room Tip: Deluxe apartments overlooking the bay are best

We chose the harbour mills as we have 2 young children and needed space. We definitely got that. The bedrooms were really good size and the living area was very spacious. We had a harbour view which was amazing. Two bathrooms with heated towel rails came in handy. It was great having all the appliances you have at home really helped.
The ladies on reception are absolutely amazing. They go above and beyond to help you with whatever you need. Any questions I had before our visit was answered straight away by email and phone.
The childrens corner is great, there are so much toys, books and colouring for children to do.
The shops are only a couple of mins away which was very helpful as we hadnt been self catering before and needed to pick up a few basics.
We will definitely be returning and would recommend Harbour Mills to everyone.

Room Tip: Harbour View is stunning. Bring basic kitchen aids. Washing up liquid, washing powder.
