Stayed here with a group of friends to celebrate a birthday. The hotel is old and dated. The bar was dated and musty. Our rooms can only be described as basic. 2 rooms looked out onto an unkept pond and wall. One room had a bay window with a view of the grounds front of house which was nice. The bathrooms were basic with the shower in the bath that you had to step over the side of bath to get into and a shower curtain that stuck to you whilst showering. No robes in the room. No luxury getaway feel. One comment completely out of the hotels control were kids running on the corridors. Kids phoned our room and also were knocking and running away. Very annoying at 8 am. Also running around restaurant while waiting staff try to serve is just dangerous felt sorry for staff. We were on a package and the menu we were offered at dinner was so limited with supplements if you wanted something else to your taste. The stater of cuttlefish was disgusting 100% rubber. Five plates went back barely touched. Just one taste was enough to put us all off. The main was fine nothing but pub grub with supplement paid, although we did find the portions small. The dessert was again just okay. All in all our dining experience was poor although a lovely birthday dessert plate was given to our friend, which was a kind gesture. Breakfast in the morning was again okay. My scramble eggs were cold and too runny for my taste. The rest of the food on my plate was luke warm. Next onto the spa we had treatments and loved the the whole spa experience, place was clean and well run. It made the break for me. All the hotel staff I came across were just lovely and helpful. For €135 per head I was expecting better. Maybe we got old rooms and a reduced standard menu for the price. I would not go back to stay or recommend but I would recommend the spa and Westport is a lovely town.
