“lovely pleasant B & B”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 26, 2011

stayed here twice now, and better this time than last.
lovely clean en suite rooms. hairdryer, tv, tea coffee making facilities,
nothing to much trouble, very nice hard working people,
good full irish breakfast. well worth a stay.
this small hotel is a gem down a small alleyway, hidden from the road, it's is a wonderful place to stay.

clifden it self is a lovely small village, but very pricey, the pubs and restaurants charge very high prices, you are 50 miles away from galway city so they have you captive. i think unless they drop prices people will stop going there and they will go broke.

Location great, right in the middle of town. Overall just a bit shabby, holes in carpet on stairs, dirty mugs in bedroom, dusty surfaces. On the plus side, the bed was clean and relatively comfortable, bathroom was clean, shower was ok, nothing to write home about. Breakfast finished at 9.30am, which I consider very early for a B&B. Paid 61.20 Euro for a double room per night as a "special rate" on Expedia but I think you can and should get a room for cheaper here.

We were very disappointed on arrival to the extent that we considered not staying but were afraid we would still be charged. This is a very basic guesthouse at a high price. 50 euro per double room would have been more appropriate. The shower pressure was pathetic. Be careful at chech out, they converted my bill to my own currency without asking which added another 3.5% to an already too high bill.

Considering this hotel had only opened 10 days prior to our visit, which itself was on the busy weekend of Connemarathon, we couldn't believe how smoothly everything went. Dev, the manager, gave a friendly welcome, the room and bath were fine, the place is right on the main street, the breakfast was excellent and the price was right at E70 per night. Highly recommend it!
