Reviewed 18 July 2012

Clew bay Hotel is very well placed in the heart of Westport close to all amenities. The bistro served very good food for all the family. The hotel offers access to the well equiped leisure centre within 50 yards beside the cinema. Best of all, the hotel provided an offer with access to the 44 KM cycle greenway which was a great day out for our familiy with stunning views and a superb experience in completing the full 44KM. A great short break.

I recently stayed here in a group of 12 lads at a weekend stag party in Westport. The hotel is very well located, within a short walk of everything in town. Free admission to the leisure centre next door for residents is well worth a visit. The reception area, bar, restaurant etc in the Hotel are excellent, modern, clean etc. The rooms ( certainly the one I stayed in, 206) was a bit dated. Old style carpet tiles, no safe in the room etc is not really up to what is needed. I know its only a 3 * but for 4 of us in the one room paying € 260 for B&B ( € 65 each ), I would expect more.
Apart from that, the staff are absolutely fantastic, friendly and not a false friendliness just for the customer. Peter in the bar stands out amongst the best. The breakfast was excellent and we ate one night in the bar and had no complaints whatsoever

Excellent choice for a hen party cocktail making class, from once we arrived the bar staff was so lovely. we had the best 3 hours on Saturday there the cocktail were out off this world, and our teacher was so funny and everyone was looked after so well.

All so nothing was too much my phone had gone dead and he went out off his way to get my phone chargered, which ment so much and was lovely.

The people off westport are just so nice what a geat place to have a hen party!

Great stay. Hotel is lovely, 3 star rating is correct although it is spotlessly clean and the service in the hotel is great. They have a great bar and bistro and is in an excellent location.

The Clew Bay Hotel was an excellent choice to stay in Westport. Staff were so helpful and and couldn't do enough for us. It is located right in town just a short walk to pubs, restaurants and shopping. Very quite tho, we had good nights sleep.

Stayed in the Clew Bay Hotel for 2 nights. Room we were given was right above a noisy kitchen extractor, but when we went to reception to ask for a different room we were given an immediate alternative (which was really great!) with apologies for the inconvenience. Handled extremely well. Staff were exceptionally friendly and welcoming. Breakfast in a very attractive room overlooking the river was cooked to order and excellent - very good to see so many alternatives to the usual full Irish. The hotel is in the middle of the town, so no large grounds, but very convenient to stroll out and enjoy Westport..a big plus. Would definitely stay here again. Tuesday night jazz session in the bistro bar was a bonus. Overall very good value...if only they could organise to have sun instead of rain! No control over the Irish summer I'm afraid!

The accommodation was excellent and staff very helpful (directing us to the best places for traditional music and a bit of craic!!) . There was also an art exhibitional in the hotel which we were invited to. Food in the bar at lunchtime and dinner in restaurant was excellent. Breakfast was also excellent with a varied choice and again the excellent service from the staff. We had a fantastic time and would definately go back to this hotel.
