“Great location,friendly staff”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 August 2014

Basic but clean rooms,very good value for money,and really friendly staff who go out of their way to accomodate you.I wouldnt recommend a stay with children as the rooms are small and noisy at night from the bar below but all in all it was a good experience and I would definitely stay there again.

Stayed here on a Saturday night in late 2013. I could not fault it. On arrival i informed the gentleman behind the bar that i had a room reserved, he handed me my key and directed me to my room on the first floor. I asked him if he needed to see my booking ref number or some ID, to which he smiled and said there was no need - that i had a trustworthy face! This made me feel at home straight away.

The room itself was small but adequate and most importantly clean. It was quite warm but the heat was easily regulated by turning down the radiator. The toilet was tight for space but it was brand new and had a power shower, which after a three hour drive, i really appreciated. Basic satellite and terrestrial channels on the LCD tv. Tea/coffee making facilities also provided. Bed was comfortable and i slept well. I had until 11.30am the next morning to catch breakfast, which was reasonable. The only minor complaint i would have is that I could hear other guests going in and out of their rooms, up to 2am, around which point it quietened down. The walls are a little bit thin, but for €48 i didn't expect the Ritz. There was a function of some sort going on downstairs, so no doubt a few of the guests were in a state of inebriation when going to bed.

I would have no hesitation in staying in the Western Strands again should i return to Belmullet.

We only went to the western strand restaurant for a nice dinner. We did not stay there. But the food was amazing. Great choices and the portions were large! Top value food for a decent price! Would definitely recommend visiting the restaurant!

Stayed here for a wedding last weekend, this hotel is basic but perfect, great rates, half the price of what we would have had to pay in the hotel the wedding was in. The bed was the comfiest ever,breakfast was massive and the best too. The management & staff could not do enough for us, it was as if we knew other all our lives, other hotels should take note, its not all about style & grandeur and airs & graces, its about a good warm welcome, good wholesome food and a great personality and the Western Strands team have it. Breakfast is available till 11.30 which is a bonus, Food all day too. Entertainment in the bar the week ends. If i have to go back to Belmullet i will be staying here definitely.

Very surprised with the hotel as we read some of the reviews on here and it was actually way better than we expected. We stayed in room 10 and there was a brand new matress on the bed and a good sized bathroom with bath and shower.
Its in a great location and def great value for money.

Attended a wedding in the Broadhaven and booked the Western Strand for the night - basically, it was 50% cheaper than the Broadhaven. The Western Strands is prestty basic - old fashioned keys for your room etc. But the rooms are clean (albeit a little dated), warm and come with lots of clean and fluffy towels etc. The breakfast is included and it is SUPER...Exactly what you want for the 'morning after'. The waitress gave us loads of toast and plenty of coffee and tea - she was lovely. I would recommend this hotel .. we came in late that night, slept sound, had a hot shower, got a great breakfast and left again! What more do you want?!
