“Handy location, tidy rooms”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 September 2012

The room we were given the toilet didn't work but they quickly moved us to another room - an upgrade room at the same price. Breakfast was good. Location very handy, clean and tidy, room had good facilities.

My wife and I had a one night stay in this lovely hotel.
First impressions were excellent and they remained unchanged.
Very clean with a freshly decorated and uncluttered appearance.
Spacious comfortable rooms.
A breakfast to die for at a window table beside a fast flowing river as clear as a mountain stream.
Breakfast was served by a pleasant well mannered and well trained waitress.
All staff seemed to have a feel good factor which helped them to give of their best.
Did not expect to find a hotel which can only be described as a jewel in the heart of a busy tourist town.

This is a very friendly hotel which is great for families and couples who like the quiet life. Great too if you are on business to the town. The Carrowbeg river flows past the breakfast dining room and can watch the Mandarin ducks negotiate the slippery rocks to swim upstream which kept my ten year old son entertained. If you are lucky enough you will also hear the water from the river bubbling away from some of the back bedrooms. You can also walk to Westport house by taking the footpath beside the river 1 minutes walk from the hotel and visible from the breakfast room. In addition you get free access to the spotless, light and airy contemporary Westport leisure pool which also looks out on to the Carrowbeg river. If all that is not enough try their super tasty Irish breakfast served by the quick witted Nellie who hails from Dublin and has settled in Louisburg. This is great place to stay and is great value for money. Orla was on reception some days and Mary on others. No request was too much trouble . It feels like home to home because of the kind charming staff who are 100% the real deal.

Room Tip: Ask for a room at the very back of the hotel where you can hear the Carrowbeg river bubbling away du...

Just returned from a trip to Ireland and stayed at the Clew Bay hotel. This is a wonderful Irish owned property...with a great location. The staff were all a delight and very welcoming. Had lunch (seafood chowder) and dinner (t-bone steak) and breakfast at the hotel - and all were excellent. My room was fresh, clean and comfortable.

Stayed in this town centre hotel for three nights. It was very satisfactory and includes free entrance to the nearby leisure club for residents. This is a traditional street fronted hotel that has been extensively and tastefully refurbished in recent years.
The most stand out feature of this place is the beds - very, very comfortable - other hotels should take note. Also, the bar food was much better than you'd expect from a bar menu - everything seemed to be prepared with a little love and it shows. Prices very reasonable too.
Staff are all friendly and helpful.

The negative with this hotel is the complete lack of effective WIFI anywhere in the hotel - despite what you may be told. Would have been 5 stars only for this.

Hotel is on one of the main streets in Westport. The staff are friendly. Room was comfortable but was near the car park which was a little noisy in the mornings but didnt spoil the weekend at all. The breakfast was really good.

Dear Paula M,

Thank you for staying with us recently. We were sorry to read that noise from the car park in the mornings was noticeable during the mornings of your stay (given our town centre location right in the heart of all that Westport has to offer), but pleased to read that you still enjoyed your stay with us. We always strive to work hard with our guests to welcome them into the hotel and to ensure they have a pleasant stay. Looking forward to welcoming you to Westport again very soon.

This hotel is situated in the centre of Westport with convenient parking alongside.On arrival we were met by a friendly face and this applied to all staff we encountered during our stay.Rooms were comfortable and the food was excellent particularly what was served in the bistro.I would have no problem reccommending this hotel to anyone and the fact that I am writing this review almost 12 months after our visit is testament to my satisfaction with our stay. We will be back.
