Excellent location and lovely people. Slightly dated decor and very clean and tidy. But for these prices the rooms should have coffee-making facilities and shouldn’t have the bulk soap/shampoo dispensers seen in budget hotels. So a good average score from me.

Thank you for your comments. We very much appreciate you taking the time to review our hotel. Regarding tea/coffee making facilities, all our rooms are equipped with tea/coffee facilities in a special unit within the desk area. You may not have noticed it. We look forward to welcoming you back here in the near future. Kind regards, Aideen

This hotel was located right in the middle of town. Easy walking distance to everything. We did not eat at the restaurant but the menu looked good. The room was nice and clean. No private parking but it did not pose a problem. We parked really close to the hotel.

Positives - good location in Clifden. Negatives - very shabby, in need of renovation, bathroom looked like it hadn't been upgraded in 40 years. Breakfast poor quality. Bed uncomfortable, VERY overpriced - I would rank it 2 star at best.

Hi Karla, Sorry we did not meet your expectations. We are regularly complimented on the old style charm of the Hotel, but clearly you prefer a more modern building. Our breakfast is cooked to order and usually highly regarded so I am not sure what the exact issue was. Our pricing is in line with similar Hotels in the area. Sorry it did not suit you. Regards, Declan.

Thank you for contacting the Alcock and Brown Hotel. There is a free public car park 2 minutes walk from hotel located behind the Tourist Information Centre. The Hotel is centrally located on the Town Square where Pay & Display is in operation Mon. to Sat. 11:30 to 6pm. Also, there is no charge on Sundays and Bank Holidays. Kind regards, Angela

where to park the car
When I stayed at the hotel, I was not told of the option to park in the supermarket facility. I was lucky to find a space outside the hotel. I would check with them via email on the arrangement, if not, we found a space without any difficulty on the street.
