“Mighty weekend in Belmullet”
Reviewed 11 June 2010

Stayed in hotel for a football tournament being held in the area. We really enjoyed our stay. The hotel was extremely busy but we were taken care off very well. The food was fantastic and the staff were very friendly. The entertainment on both nights was very good with Eamonn and Paddy. Both of these musicians are great entertainers and it very nice to see the crowd join in. We noted that most of the rooms have been completely renovated to a very high standard and I understand from speaking with the manager that the remaining rooms will be renovated in the near future. We are looking forward to our next trip to Belmullet and the Western Strands.

Not too many places to stay in Belmullet! So we make the best of it.......
My single room was small, which was okay since I was not in the room much - my only comment is that there was no chair in the room, had to sit on the bed. Everything very clean, with a nice tea service in the room.
Wonderful breakfast! Great wait staff. I loved the nod to tradition in the restaurant - with the film of a peat fire on a flat-screen TV on the wall!

Arrived in the Western Strand and could not believe what was presented to us as a "hotel" we could not find a hotel, business was carried out of a store room, we would not accept the first room offered as it was so small it would be difficult to swing a cat, we reluctently accepted another room as the town was fully booked so it was a bed or sleep in the car. The decoration is awful it is so poor it is hard to describe, the bathroom is below average and simple things like an iron, phone etc was not included. The walls and doors where paper thin and my wife had to ask our drunk neighbours to be quiet at 6am. All in all a terrible expierence on the up side the staff are nice people but what a hotel in this day and age surely the authorities must have to vet and check out these establishments

This hotel is right in the centre of Belmullet town, close to the sea but not right beside it. Lovely sandy beaches within a few miles. The breakfast served in this hotel is traditional with a large choice of main cooked options. Could put out yoghourt, fresh fruit etc... for those whose appetite is not so large but in my opinion the breakfasts I got cannot be beaten anywhere.

A few friends and I travelled to The Western Strands Hotel for our friends birthday party. We had 2 great days staying in Belmullet. The party was brilliant with great music by Paddy. We had dinner the following evening in the new dining room. it is a beautiful room and the meal was very tasty with very attentive waitresses. The recently renovated bedrooms are a little small but very confortable and very clean. We enjoyed the weekend. First time in Belmullet but we will be back.

We stayed in the Western Strands Hotel as we were attending a family get-together in Erris.. Even though this is a small hotel we were very well treated and had a very good weekend. The breakfeast was excellent and the waitress was very friendly and attentive. The evening meal on the Saturday was delicious . Thrtr was live music in the bar which was very lively. We noted that extensive renovations are ongoing. We will be back .

My wife and family stayed in the Western Strands as part of a mini break in the West. I was delighted to find that there are hotels like this still left in Ireland where the staff are friendly and helpful, the rooms are clean,warm and comfortable and the food is tasty,almost too plentiful and all for a hard to beat price. The hotel is in the town so everything was close at hand. The staff told us that It has undergone recent renovation as the restaurant and bar area is right up to date in its decor as are the rooms and entrance hall but it still has a old world charm when you take the stairs to the rooms where you use an old fashioned key to get in! Nice change from cards that never work... We want to go back in the Summer to take advantage of the great beaches around the area and we will definitely be booking The Western Strands. The photograph on this website doesn't do it justice!
