“Fantastic place to stay”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 August 2012

Myself and a large group stayed here over the August weekend , it was like a home away from home. Excellent facilities and very helpful and friendly staff. Would highly recommend this Hotel to stay in!

Stayed in the Clew Bay Hotel for three nights in total. The hotel is very clean with very friendly staff who are willing to help with any question you may have. It is located near to all the shops, pubs and facitilies that Westport has to offer. Will be back for another stay......

Our son recommended this lovely hotel to us for a recent visit we had in Westport and it was as good as he said it was and we would loved to have stayed longer. The staff were so friendly and helpful. The rooms were great and the bed very comfortable. We all enjoyed meeting in the bar enjoying the ambience in front of the fire. We really enjoyed breakfast which was freshly cooked with a great choice in the lovely dining room. The hotel is centrally located in the town. The manager, Darren was particularly helpful in suggesting a venue for us to listen to live music which was great, thank you. Will defiinitely stay again next time we are in Westport.

Thank you for your very positive stay at our hotel recently. We are all so glad you enjoyed your stay with us. All our guest rooms now have mattress toppers, which aim to give everyone a very comfortable nights sleep. We have worked hard to produce an enticing new bar & bistro menu utilising fresh ingredients and locally-sourced produce wherever possible, and we are glad you enjoyed the ambience too. Westport is a great place to live, and we are all very keen to work hard to keep it that way. We look forward to welcoming you back to stay with us again soon.

A huge thanks to the clew bay hotel for a fantastic cocktail making session for my sisters hen.
The setup is excellent with your own dedicated barman and the cocktails are fabulous. Peaches and cream yum yum!
This was an excellent choice of activity for the hen and I would highly receommned it.
The service and staff were brilliant for the cocktail making and great value for money.
A must do if you are in the area.

Just back from a most enjoyable three night stay in this excellent hotel. We were welcomed by friendly, helpful staff and our room was bright, modern, clean and comfortable. Nothing was too much trouble - we brought our bikes and the hotel porter put them into safe keeping for us. We had a lovely meal in the hotel bistro, Maddens. Breakfast was made to order and as well as traditional fare like a Full Irish, scrambled egg and smoked salmon was another option. To top it all, we ate our breakfast at a table with a riverside view. The Clew Bay Hotel is the ideal choice if you want to soak up the atmosphere of Westport and we will be back.

We stayed for six nights which is longer than usual for us and gives us a reasonable opportunity to assess your hotel. We were pleased by the room and were much impressed by the general friendliness and hospitality of the staff (in fact, when we were leaving the manager even offered to drive us to the railway station). Breakfast was always interesting, even if the coffee could be better. We used the bistro on several occasions and found it suited our needs, even though it may not have reached the highest culinary heights. It's convenient to have Tourist Information next door and an agreeable tea-room across the street. We much enjoyed Westport (in spite of its notable lack of bus services) and hope to return before too long.
