“Memorable Stay”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 June 2014

We had a very nice stay at the Augusta Lodge. The location was quiet but within easy walking distance to the city center for a relaxing visit. The facilities and our room were all nicely appointed and clean. What really stands out were the hosts (sorry, I can't remember their names, I'm bad that way). We ended up talking about all sorts of things and would have stayed longer if we didn't have to hit the road. That kind of engagement makes the place more enjoyable and memorable.

"Nice and a very special place"
Back from my Golf trip on the North & West Coast links Golf courses, I discovered this Guesthouse sets within a walking distance to the pretty Westport town. My room was spacious, well furnished and clean. The linen has been changed every day. In addition to the Putting Green on site, also the living room decorated with Golf related pictures, Golf books and several Golf articles spreads its special atmosphere ; a perfect environment overall for Golfers. Dave is a very friendly and perfect host that doesn't have a problem to prepare breakfast very early in the morning. Unfortunately the WiFi didn't work very well but guests can use the computer with internet connections. Thanks Dave, I enjoyed the conversations about our common Hobby!

We stayed in the king room number 5 which faces the front of the house and the putting green. The room was spacious and the bed was comfortable which lead to a great nights sleep. The hosts were extremely friendly and helpful from the time we arrived until we left. They gave us excellent advise on where to stop on our way to Sligo and where to go into town. Breakfast was good with a range of options to suit our tastes. This was one of the best Guesthouse we have stayed on this Irish holiday . Would come again and would highly recommend.

I made our reservation here based largely on the preponderance of 5"s in the TripAdvisor reviews. Only after returning did we notice that the large majority of the 5's came from people whose only review was the Augusta Lodge. Seems pretty fishy. It was an OK place but definitely not even close to a 5. Although it was clean (as almost all Irish B&B's are), the room was tiny, the bathroom was microscopic, and the breakfast was mediocre, although the coffee was quite good. We had a large window in our room, but there were no screens and we quickly had insects flying in - so we had to try sleeping in a very stuffy room. Not good at all. C'mon, guys, how much would good screens cost you? Sheesh...

CoveyWestport, Manager at Augusta Lodge, responded to this review, 23 May 2014
Dear reviewer, thank you for taking the time to post a review for us on Tripadvisor. It is unfortunate that the only good points you had to say about us was our coffee and our cleanliness. It is nice to have the opportunity to respond.

I would gladly take suggestions on how we can improve on our "mediocre" breakfast which has received a far greater number of good comments than bad. Our breakfast menu is as follows:
Choice of Juices.
Choice of cereals including cornflakes, wheetabix, bran flakes, muesli and porridge made to order. We also provide mini cereals for children such as coco-pops, rice crispies, honey-loops, etc.
Choice of fruits including oranges, bananas, apples, kiwis, strawberys and grapes.
Choice of yogurts including natural, fruit and organic.
Choice of teas/coffees including organic, herbal and decaff. Hot chocolate.
Our hot breakfasts include any combination of the following; scrambled eggs, poached eggs, boiled eggs, bacon, sausage, black/white pudding, tomatoes.
Not a bad breakfast selection for a Bed and Breakfast!

Your statement that "a large majority of 5's were from reviewers that reviewed us only" and your subsequent statement "seems pretty fishy" is insulting to both ourselves and those reviewers. Indeed a fair proportion of these reviews are from Senior Tripadvisor Reviewers.

The room you stayed in has never been described as "tiny" and the ensuite, although not our biggest, is adequate and definately not "microscopic". They are not advertised as bathrooms but as ensuites. These comments are unjustified..

With regard to the issue of insects flying in through the open windows and our lack of "screens". All blinds, venetian, pull down or curtain mesh, will not prevent insects entering as they are attracted to the light and heat. Our guests control the heating in their room and perhaps the "turning down" of the radiator would not necessitate the windows being left open. Our rooms have never been described as stuffy. Perhaps the introduction of mosquito nets might help. C'mon guys. Sheesh...

Augusta Lodge is a very pleasant place to stay with a very comfortable king room ! Westport is a very nice place to discover, with many restaurants and pubs !
The room was perfectly clean.
A little bad thing : the wifi didn't work very well

We arrived on a rainy afternoon, discouraged because the lodge appeared to be far out of town. Own rooms were very comfortable and pleasant. Upon walking into town, we realized that it was just a very short walk, indeed. The hosts gave us wonderful recommendations for food in music. They accommodated our every request. This is a true gem.

We were fortunate enough to spend 3 nights in Augusta Lodge and we felt very welcome from the moment we arrived. The room was clean, comfortable and warm. For breakfast there was a good variety of cereal, fruit and of course a good hearty fry, all served with plenty of banter from our host David. David was full of information about the local area and was able to advise us about all the local tourist attractions. We would defiantly recommend the Augusta Lodge and we are already looking forward to our next stay.

Room Tip: We asked for a room with a garden view and we weren't disappointed, so when booking state what y...
