Stayed in Delphi last week. Me and my boyfriend have been talking about our few days there since. Everything was excellent. The staff really make the place. Their characters really add so much to the resort. The resort is set in the middle of the mountains and is breathtaking. We enjoyed all our meals. Breakfast came hot from the kitchen which was a welcome change from most other hotels. I was like a child ordering pancakes each morning. Couldn't resist! There was a lovely selection on the cold buffet also. We didn't have lunch any day as we decided to drive to Clifden and Louisburgh to explore the surroundings. Dinner on the first night was good in the bar - lamb cutlets for himself, a Fishermans bowl for me - delicious. We couldn't resist having a few Mayo-jitos in the bar after. We ate in the restaurant on the second night. We both had fish - snapper and sole - nicely presented, cooked to perfection - not too much fuss - just good food. The rooms are lovely. We had a loft room which was really quaint and comfortable. A nice living room with the bed in the loft. We felt bad not doing any activities as everyone was in tracksuits and runners heading for the great outdoors. We headed for the spa to relax in the thermal area and were pampered by Barbara and Breege. Really nice pleasant ladies who know what they are doing and how to do it. We can't wait to go back. Special mention to Anna and Erica in the restaurant and Kelly on reception. Can't wait to go back!

Stayed in Delphi for one night during the Wstport Festival. We were a little worried that it wouldn't be worth the trip because it was a 45 min drive from Westport on a late Saturday night. However the staff were so kind and welcoming when we arrived, the bed was like A CLOUD, the blankies and pillows were sheer comfort. Beautiful views, peaceful surroundings - we would love to spend four or five nights in Delphi soon to make the most of the adventure opportunities and the spa. We think this place would be an amazing place to celebrate a wedding. Our stay was short but very very sweet!

Just back from an amazing weekend at a wedding here. Great location surrounded by stunning views. The staff are so nice and friendly and the place has the perfect balance of everything. Barman, Seany T was the highlight keeping us all going 'till 5.30 am with his epic cocktails, especially his patented 'Mayojitos'. If you're visiting the West, put this on your list!!

we've been in Westport last Sunday visiting family only when we realised that there was a festival going on and no hotels had rooms, no rooms in Castlebar, nothing in Luisburg, only find out about this hotel on here and made a reservation right away which for a moment looked like nobody knew about after we arrived - it was only around 9pm so not that late. We were starving although we had a dinner with family in Westport in the afternoon so we headed to Bar which is too small and no tables were free, terrace was gorgeous yet you have an unwanted company of midges, thankfully we were invited to the restaurant and got spoiled by delicious and pretty food - pretty as you can see on telly yet you get to taste it = 5 star!. Room was class and cosy, we walked around this amazing resort just after breakfast which seemed somewhat busy ish, free run kinda atmosphere yet food was very good and cooked to order which is rare to see nowadays. Resort is beautiful, scenery second to none, simply amazing, pity we had to leave but we will be back soon, if not to stay, definitely for Dinner - show stealer, it is not that far from us after all.
very happy that we found Delphi, never new about such a special place existed.

This was my third stay at Delphi over the last few years and each time the food has been progressively more disappointing.

On my last stay just last week the breakfast was even a let down... The pancakes were not freshly cooked but obviously reheated, & with no maple syrup because the kitchen had run out! There was very little attention to presenting the food well & the fruit on the plate looked like it had seen better days.

My evening meal, of steak, was again a let down. It came served with cold, overcooked green beans, which I sent back expecting freshly cooked to replace them, but the same came out, just a bigger portion, and it was also served with tiny pieces of overcooked mushrooms. It seemed obvious to me that the kitchen places no value on the quality of the side orders and thinks a tasty slab of meat is sufficient. Why you would serve steak with washed out beans I have no idea, when you could serve it with some deliciously simple roasted tomatoes & whole mushrooms. A great steak should be the staple of any good hotel or restaurant, and this Delphi is certainly lacking.

Aside from the food issue I was also surprised that my request for a late checkout was refused. Bearing in mind I had booked 3 hours of treatments in the spa from 10-1pm, yet the receptionist could not meet my request. It is little things like this that I think let Delphi down.

The location of this hotel is undoubtedly amazing & the staff generally really helpful, but I would not recommend this hotel to anyone wanting the whole package of location & great food because it falls short on the latter in a big way. I look forward to hearing that the food has improved at some stage in the future, but until then I will not be returning which is a real shame.

Have just spent 3 days here over a long weekend, and have come back totally relaxed. It was my first experience of this resort. The excellent weather has helped, but that's not all. Firstly, the location is terrific, though a little bit of the beaten track for some. The views over the mountain from the restaurant and bar area are great and you have a sense of being out in the wilderness. It is more of an upmarket lodge than a hotel. We stayed in the deluxe double rooms which was a reasonable size, though there are other choices available. WI-Fi is available in the rooms and the general reception areas, though it can be a bit slow at peak times as everyone tries to log on simultaneously. It's useful to have as there is no signal available most of the time for cellular networks, which is no harm - a chance to get away from it all. Also, there is only one television in the hotel which is really only used for watching special events in a separate area away from the bar/restaurant/lounges.The staff are extremely friendly in helpful on all parts of the hotel. Overall, the food is very good, though the breakfast tends to be a little over cooked. We participated in kayaking, archery and snorkeling. In all cases, the equipment was of a high standard and the staff were extremely capable, helpful and clearly well-trained and experienced. All of the adventures were a fun experience. The scenery in the surrounding area is AMAZING, though I mus emphasis we have terrific weather which helped enormously. I would definitely return here and would recommend to anyone who is reasonably fit and willing to give things a try - a great place to go if you have young family, as there is sufficient choice of activities to suit all.
