Stayed for two nights on a stag party, rooms clean, food great, service 100% short walk from town center,good value over all with breakfast and dinner included, only complaint would be that the dinner is off a set menu with no option for steak unless you pay a charge of €10 for it or anything outside the set menu.

Stayed here for two nights. Got an offer of 2 nights B&B + 1 evening meal. I can only guess that we got an inferior room because of this. It was terrible! The room we got was cold & dirty, cobwebs on & in the lampshades, smears on the ceiling where someone had obviously killed some bugs & not wiped it after. Walls must have been paper thin because we could here everything that was going on. We asked reception if we could be upgraded to a better room & were told that there was none available that night & they would make a note & let us know if something came up for the next night. We heard nothing! Dinner was another nightmare! When we checked in we tried to book for 7 pm, was told it was booked out but they could fit us in at 7.30??? We arrived at 7.30 & were seated alongside the other 3 or 4 tables that were there! After 3 hours of waiting & waiting we finally finished our meal & left. The food overall was nice but the wait was excruciating. Didn't bother staying for coffee. When we asked for the bill for the wine we were told we had to pay when we were checking out. When we checked out the receptionist was on the phone & didn't even bother to ask how our stay was, she just took the money & carried on talking. Don't know how this place is rated 4 star!

Stayed here 29th to 30th September for a family members wedding. An excellent hotel could find no faults. The bedrooms (and I say bedrooms because I visited a number of rooms popping in, on other family members) were decorated to the highest standard, with flat screen TV in room and a large ensuite bathroom. The beds were very comfortable and the bed linen was like cotton wool, so relaxing. The staff were excellent and very friendly. The service went as far as the assistant manager coming out to the car park saying good-bye to us on our departure. We had dinner in the restaurant on the Sunday night, the food and service was excellent. Ample parking around the hotel and a lovely 5-minute walk along the river into the town. I had stayed in another hotel in the centre of Westport on the 28th September and found it very noisy with car traffic but there was lovely peace and tranquillity around Hotel Westport. I will definitely be returning to Hotel Westport as so much to see and do in the area and just didn’t have time on this trip.

Could not recommend this place enough. Just had a 3 night stay for my friends wedding. Staff were so helpful, food was out of this world and hotel is in a perfect location with beautiful grounds for photos. Ask for Colette best planner ever, all the personal touches really made everyone feel right at home. If you are getting married and looking for a fab location this is it.

This 4 star hotel is in major need of a revamp (well, based on the bedroom I had). The decor of the room was dated and tired, the walls very thin and the furniture plain & cheap. Scratchy blankets on the beds, not really comfortable, certainly not plush. I would expect more comfort from a 4 star hotel.
The hotel's restaurant was booked out so we had dinner in the bar. There were no free tables so we were moved into an adjoining room and were the only people there. The steak and chips were very nice, as was dessert! The young bar staff were inexperienced, but polite & enthusiastic.
As another reviewer mentioned (think we must have had the same room!), the hot water in the bathroom sink was scalding. The shower we had wasn't working properly, the shower head would only point at the wall unless you held it! And the bathroom floor was soaking after the shower, despite using the shower curtain.
Also just to point out that the toilet roll was very cheap quality, this is not the standard of a 4 star hotel.
However the Ocean spa was AMAZING, I cannot say enough good things about how great the staff were here. The special packages on offer were excellent value, myself & my friend thoroughly enjoyed our afternoon there. Even though we just booked a treatment package they provided spa robes & slippers and use of the relaxtion room with loungers as though we had booked a spa day, it was lovely.
The swimming pool was full of schoolchildren having lessons for much of the time we were there, so we abandoned the pool in favour of the steam room & sauna, these were pretty good but constantly busy.

Room Tip: If booking this hotel, request a modernised bedroom.

Perhaps because we were on a tour (though every other hotel we stayed at with this tour company was superb) may have made a difference but these hotel rooms need a major overhaul. The rooms are uncomfortable, cheaply furnished (TV's are analog needing to push a button to turn them on) cheap amenities, The service in the restaurant was very slow because they did not have not only enough help but inexperienced help. Felt like reception desk treated us 2nd class because we were on tour. The only best thing about staying here was the show about Grace O'Malley that was in an adjoining theater. do yourself a favor if you stay in Westport find something closer to town and more friendly (which is typical of an Irish hotel) and treats you well no matter how you came there.
