Reviewed 26 November 2013

From the moment we arrived, we experienced the friendly and warm and welcome. The room was spacious and clean with a lovely view of the river. After climbing Croagh Patrick, we returned to the hotel in our hiking clothes, the lady who worked in house-keeping offered for us to have a bath in another room as our room had shower only. We didn't take her up on the offer but it was such a kind and thoughtful offer which was very appreciated. The hotel really has a - home away from home - feel and we were treated like royalty the whole weekend. Many thanks to all.

Room Tip: River view rooms provide a lovely sound of the water gushing past

The staff were so welcoming and friendly. They could not do enough for us. We felt very at home here. The rooms were very comfortable just what we needed. The hotel is so centrally located it made our overnight stay very easy. Breakfast was lovely too. Will definitely stay here again.

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.

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
