Arriving late in Westport we found ourselves being redirected here as our favored hotel was completely booked out. Staff was very friendly and helpful and allowed us to take a view of the room before we actually took it. Our double-bedroom appeared a bit tired and smelled slightly damp but was however spotlessly clean.
All in all a good location for a stayover and might offer good rates including breakfast (average). Brilliantly located if you want to enjoy Westports many offerings.

Pleasant receptionist at check in.
Good bed. Comfortable room. Decor not the best! Decorator/contractor did very rough work! Patchy wallpaper. Unfinished sink counter / tile work in bathroom. Double bed but had two single quilts/duvets.
Old style key. Difficult to open lock. Only one key for two guests. Additional key/device for electricity in room - attached to room key.
Could hear guests in room next door and room above.
Great location. Beautiful town.

Excellent value for money. Stayed here in December for one night during a very wild cold storm. THe room was warm and very very cosy. It was my second stay here and I will be returning again on business in January. I've stayed in a few hotels in Westport and this has the best breakfast in town.

My and my partner arrived in Westport on spec on a Friday night this November and since it was November we assumed there would be no problem getting a place to stay. But there was! Having tried a couple of B+B's and found them booked out, we called to the Clew Bay expecting the same result. But we were lucky, and I MEAN lucky, because we got a great deal from the hotel and I have absolutely no doubt everything about our stay in the hotel was superior to what we would have experienced in a B+B. Friendly and helpful staff, a lovely spacious room, comfortable beds, and a generous and varied breakfast. One little point to the manager: whoever makes the wholemeal brown bread for the breakfast, tell them to ease off on the sugar cos it was a bit too sweet. Apart from that everything was perfect.

Dear Peadarog,

Thank you for taking the time to write a great review about your recent stay with us here in Westport at the Clew Bay Hotel. We were very pleased to accommodate you on that Friday evening as you walked-in: it was a busy night in the town.

We are pleased you had a comfortable and welcoming room, and that you particularly enjoyed our renowned breakfast service! We will pass on your comment about the sugar content of the homemade wholemeal bread to our breakfast chef. However we are glad you found it very tasty!

We very much look forward to welcoming you back to the Clew Bay Hotel again in the near future.

With very best wishes,

Neil Thompson

As we were doing a winter break we wanted cosy, warm and welcome. We got all three and more pleased to say. Just great. Room was lovely and clean with a great bathroom and powerful shower. Food was excellent both for breakfast and dinner. Staff were actually real people who seemed to enjoy what they did! Don't even question about booking this hotel. Just do it. You won't be let down.

Room Tip: we were on 1st floor. nothing to see but it was winter and dark so we had pulled drapes from 4.30pm...

I stayed in this hotel on 23/11/13 with a group of friends and would highly recommend it. The room I stayed in was lovely with very comfortable beds and a lovely bathroom. We had booked in for dinner also and it was all delicious. For breakfast we were offered the usual cereal etc. and then a menu for different cooked breakfasts all cooked to order rather than the usual buffet breakfast. All the staff were very helpful and friendly.
