“Modern and Comfortable”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 17, 2012

Excellent town centre location. Friendly staff. Superb breakfast. Clean and well organised. Design feels somewhat institutional and it is so modern it somewhat lacks old charm. But still I highly recommend it.

This hotel has a super location on one of the main streets in lovely Westport town. It has a pleasant lobby area and a good bar however thats where the positives end. The room was a good size but the bed was not a proper double, it was too beds pushed together and was most uncomfortable. The bathroom was freezing! Literally freezing and not helped by a draughty window. The walls were quite thin also which was annoying. Westport is great however and be sure to check out Matt Molloys pub which has a cracking atmosphere.

Bummer about not having wi-fi in the rooms, as that was the only blemish on this hotel (I stayed for business). Room and bathroom both very large and comfortable. Breakfast good. Parking is a city lot adjacent to the hotel and is very cheap. Everything is within a very short walk in this fabulous Irish town. Strongly suggested for a weekend mini-break.

Stayed for 2 nights (3 - 5 April) using the hotel as a base for sea fishing in Clew Bay with Clew Bay charters (see below). The welcome from Maria at the airport was great and the personal transfer to the hotel was a particularly nice touch. Also her insightful recommendations for bars and restaurants were particularly well received. The hotel was clean, the rooms were clean and of a good size and breakfast offered plenty of choice. Most of all, all staff were very welcoming, friendly and always keen to have laugh and a joke.

Clew Bay charters run by Darraigh McGhee were fantastic and offered everything we could ask for and more for a days fishing in Clew Bay - I could not recommend him highly enough.

Stayed for three nights arriving on Monday 26th March 2012. Very good hotel with nice rooms and good ensuite facilities. Even though our room was overlooking the car park it was quiet with the only interruption being the morning when the bins were being collected. The pool area was very clean as was the changing room and shower area. Great Sauna and Steam room. Fantastic facility.

Room Tip: Room to the front with a view of Clew Bay attract a surcharge but may be noisier with the traffic et...

Stayed here for St. Patricks weekend and had a great time. Lots of activities availanle to book in Adventure Island nextdoor. The meal in the hotel was great and I had two teenage boys and a ten yr old daughter who all loved the stay. The leisure centre is at the resr great with a fine pool and sauna steam room etc. The cinema is also at the rear and the staff of the hotel were vety polite and friendly. Highly recommend this hotel this town and Adventure Island activities.
