The reception area is nice, the receptionist was top notch she knew we had a dog in the car organized a room where we could see the it, very thoughtful and created a good impression. Place was busy with a writers festival but service in bar and bistro was very pleasant. This hotel is superbly located in the centre of town, very safe, cheap public car park right next door out bar entrance. As an old style AA 3 star hotel it hits well above that, well worth a visit if only for the charm of the staff. Excellent Breakfast Porridge and Kippers two of my favourites which many 5 stars can't do.

Room Tip: The room we had overlooked the Car Park there was certainly no issues with it There are probably a n...

Dear Terry H,

Thank you for taking the time to write a Trip Advisor review of your recent stay with us.

I personally thank you too for the kind words you wrote in your email!

It's good to read that our reception colleagues were able to accommodate your rooming requests, and that you found your room pleasant and comfortable.

As you mention for a town centre location hotel we have the use of an adjoining public car park which represents excellent value for a day's car parking.

The quality and range of our breakfast service is well known, and we are glad you enjoyed your tasty kippers!

We very much look forward to welcoming you back to the Clew Bay Hotel again very soon.

Yours,

Neil Thompson

very cosy.. central to town, walking distance to Westport harbour / house / clew bay bike hire. bike hire is cheaper done through hotel!!..friendly staff ...good food...requested quiet room away from traffic and request was granted..cant rem exactly but I think double room cost same as single room, so maybe hotels (in general) should scrap the single supplement...

Dear Caroline M,

Thank you for taking the time to write a wonderful review of your recent stay with us here at the Clew Bay Hotel. And most of all that you had a great time!

We were glad we could fulfil your room request. Regarding your comment on single room prices: often on busy nights and Saturday's we do not have any single room occupancy, so we sell a double or twin. The cost for a single occupancy of a double or twin room is very similar due to the fact that the room service costs are little different, and of course you are getting a more spacious room too. We are a popular hotel, and our rates are very competitively priced.

We look forward to welcoming you back to the Clew Bay Hotel again in the near future.

With very best wishes,

Neil Thompson

We stayed here for three nights in November and really enjoyed it. The price was fantastic for the quality of the hotel. The staff were very friendly and so helpful. Having a pint in the bar and listening to the conversation between Donna(she was brilliant) and some of the locals especially Ivan, was like listening to a play. John B Keane or Billy Roche would have found it hard to write the script for that conversation.... Priceless. I thought the hotel was a little hard to find and passed it twice before seeing the small sign with the name on it and the sign in the car park needs to be repainted but that is the only negative I could say about this hotel. I would definitely stay here again.

Dear Titch1955,

Thank you for taking the time to write a review of your recent stay on Trip Advisor. We are so pleased you enjoyed your stay with us: especially the craic in the bar! I have passed on your kind words to my colleague Donna.

We note your points about the signage into the hotel car park and the signage to the rear of the building in the car park itself.

We look forward to welcoming you back for another pleasant experience at the Clew Bay in the near future!

We were on honeymoon last week around Ireland but hadn't booked accommodation everywhere as we were seeing what the weather was like. We decided to head to Westport so the day before we went, we booked a room at the Clew Bay Hotel, a bargain at only £41!!

When we got there, the staff were very welcoming and as we had told them it was our honeymoon, they had put some chocolates in our room.

Our room was very spacious, clean and well decorated. Definitely worth more than the £41 we paid! Breakfast was lovely also.

We were right in the centre of Westport but it wasn't noisy at all.

We would definitely stay again!

Our stay in The Clew Bay Hotel was great, our room(209) was very spacious and had a great view of the running river below. The service was great there, I requested a vacuum because I had to pack my clothes in space bags, the bags that compress all your clothing by sucking out all the air (Have to do this since the airlines charge you for a 2nd bag nowadays) The vacuum was delievered to my room within minutes (5).
The only things I have an issue was with: The WiFi (Only available in the Lobby area, they are currently upgrading their system where it will be available in all the rooms. The Hallway to our room was quite narrow and allot of 90 Degree turns, Bumping the walls with our luggage. Our Bathroom room was nice and large, but the tiled shower (very nice and spacious) didn't have a door/screen/curtain which led to some water from the shower been sprayed on the floor.
Even though I found little faults with this hotel, I would book again if I ever stayed in Westport.

Very central location for the town and the staff were very helpful and friendly. We enjoyed our stay, with parking only metres from the door. Room was clean as you'd expect from any hotel room. Would stay again and hope it won't be in the too distant future.
