Spacious, comfortable, clean. Perhaps can get too hot.. But just turn down the heaters. Love that there's a sauna, steam room and jacuzzi plus a drying room for clothes/jackets etc.. Have stayed here twice in the past two years and it's great value. Staff are very friendly and helpful.

Stayed: October 2013, traveled as a couple

The location, staff and facilities were fabulous! The apartment was spacious enough for 2 adults and 3 children, with 2 BRs and 2 baths. It was very clean and well-maintained. The entire facility was comfortable. The location is beautiful, right on the quay in Westport, yet away from the bustle of town. The staff were excellent. They offered us many discounts to area restaurants and attractions, and made many suggestions regarding things to do. We made a few minor requests throughout our visit and they were addressed promptly. We will definitely return and will recommend it to anyone who will be travelling in the area.

Room Tip: Our room did not look out on the quay, but it was still quite and comfortable and reasonably priced.

I stayed in the Harbour Mill over the Galeforce West weekend with my wife and young son and thought it was a fantastic place to stay. Having taken part in the Gaelforce event three times before I wantwed somewhere safe and quiet to stay the night before and for a few days afterwards. This place fits the bill perfectly.
It is not the cheapest place to stay in Westport but if you fill the two rooms then it is very competitive.
The staff are all super friendly and really helpful.
The place is clean, there are a few squeaky floor boards and doors but nothing to complain about.
The harbour view penthouse apartment is well wrorth the extra few quid for the view and lack of noise coming from above (important when trying to get a young child to sleep).
Some of the other reviews had mentioned the internal courtyard being noisy but I did not find this a problem. I get annoyed easily by noise in hotels etc but didn't really notice any noise even on a busy Saturday so don't let this put you off.
You get disounts in some restaurants if you stay.
The leisure facilities were just perfect after the adventure race and were very clean and well kept.
There was a massive childrens play room with adjoining comfy adult seating space, great for sitting with a wine while the kids played away.
In winter the reception room has a massive fire.
The room was well equipped with everything you need including , tea towels, dishwasher tablets.
The TV even had Sky Sports.
Free carparking below the hotel and the staff let us store our bikes for the race in a store. There were even buses laid on to take us to the race start which was thoughtful.
Great location with three good pubs and restaurants only a minutes walk away, Towers - good pint and sports/ music - The Helm -busy spot for the craic and the Coast restaurant - lovely big post race burger.

In short...we will be back next year to have another go at the race and will definitely be staying at the Harbour Mill.

Room Tip: Spend the extra money on a penthouse apartment with a harbour view.

We know a few people who have stayed here previously and they spoke in glowing terms about Harbour Mill. And they were spot on.

We stayed in the Courtyard DX and it was perfect. The living area was spacious and had all the facilities we needed. The bedrooms and bathrooms were also spacious and comfortable and warm. The apartment was spotless and there was a lovely atmosphere around the place

The staff were incredibly friendly and helpful and always had a smile on their faces!

We will definitely be back in Westport and we will definitely be staying in Harbour Mill!

Firstly I have to say this is the best place to stay in Westport.
The apartment had two separate bedrooms with two bathrooms, living area, kitchen and a balcony with a view of the harbour.
There is underground parking but on street parking is free. They have leisure facilities which include a sauna, stem room and a Jacuzzi, which only guests can use. There is a 24 hour reception, which have very friendly staff.
When you check in you get discount vouchers for the local restaurants/bars and attractions. Which we used and we accepted by all places.

This is great spot to have as a base due to the location and the attractions that are near.

We will defiantly be having a return visit.

Room Tip: definlty upgrade to the harbour view, as it is pretty amazing

Family of six just returned from few days and could not recommend the standard of these apartments any higher. Everything was excellent and a score of 99% is well deserved. Only 1% held back for lack of wifi most of the time. Upgrade the coverage and it be perfect. Thank you. Will be recommending to everyone.

We arrived in August to this amazing hotel (11 kids and 8 adults). The staff were fabulous. Location was excellent. You would be amazed at this place. We were right beside Westport House and right on the Westport Quay. Only 10 mins walk into the town, but there were so many lovely restaurants right on the doorstep. The apartments were extremely spacious. We had 11 kids between three families and we couldn't have asked for a better hotel. Staff were excellent.

Room Tip: Make sure you book a Harbour View. Amazing.
