"don't - don't"
obviously designed for conferences, this hotel should not be used for other intentions. while the staff was pleasant, the amenities were lacking. the linens and shower curtain in the rooms were stained, you had to go all the way to the bar to get a glass of ice, and the bathroom had obviously been tiled over without the old first - making for a claustrophobic […] shower. the only thing it had in abundance was noise - the walls carried sound from three rooms away.

Room was comfortable. There were tour buses & some crowds to deal with at times, but it served the purpose for the night.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
While clean and tidy, the rooms were a bit dated. Over all the service was very good. We would say there again, good value for money.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
This hotel is quite lovely, as I like the older style. The standard was excellent for me and the people at the desk were very friendly and helpful. My only complaint would be that it took a very long time for the water in the shower to become hot enough.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"Noisy Wedding Guests"
Room Fine Long wait for meal in bar as wedding guests had to be served. middle of night wedding guests returning to rooms extremely noisy and woke us upGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Weekend visit for a wedding"
Sadly we found the hotel to be soulless and tired. The bar had live music playing on Friday night and as a guest I tried to persuade people into the bar to listen to give the bar some atmosphere. The music was not advertised in the lounge and we were not advised of it by the Reception staff. That said the Reception staff were great, friendly helpful […] and efficient. The carpets required replacement, the bathroom had no working extraction and was dark as were the corridors to our accommodation. To access our room on the first floor we had to go via the second floor which was peculiar. Breakfast was not well laid out and one felt almost guilty selecting and requesting items as my experience is people wish to serve themselves. Someone at the front of the buffet assisting as opposed to serving would be a better option. We opted to stay at this hotel as the write up appeared to offer us accommodation in line with the Maritime Hotel but at a better rate. Subsequent to our stay it become obvious this was not the case. We now wish we had paid the extra and stayed at the Maritime. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
Hotel needs an overhaul. Attention to detail in rooms badly needed Staff very good. Breakfast very goodGenuine Hotels.com guest review
This resort property needs an overhaul. No wifi service in the rooms and marginal service in the lobby area. Depending on where your room is, you may have to lug your bag up a flight of stairs. The rooms were dated and a bit shabby.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"basic but friendly hotel"
reasonable hotel; rooms adequate and not uncomfortable; friendly staff; reasonable and generous breakfast but no fresh fruit; room had facilities for making tea & instant coffee; bathroom only had tiny handbasin. Not a luxury stay.Genuine Expedia guest review
We had a lovely stay. Hotel is in a perfect location for sightseeing. Our room was clean and comfy. Breakfast was delicious and are planning on returning in the near future. Would definitely recommend.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Take your pyjamas"
The hotel is in a good location. The room was big with a spider and spiderwebs above the bed. The bed covers had little hairs and crumbs. We have our suspicions that the bed covers were not changed as they were not very clean so it's best to take your pyjamas. Also when the bar closes you'll hear your neighbours in the first and fifth floors, every […] single bang of the door, so take your ear plugs if you go to sleep early. We liked the pool, it was very cozy. Good price. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nice looking hotel"
All very deceptive, the rooms are very dated and shabby. Beds and pillows very hard and uncomfortable, the reception area is nice, but freezing cold, and this is the only place to get wifi. The staff are excellent and friendly, probably the best assets of this hotel.Genuine Expedia guest review
The rooms are what let's this hotel down. There was a layer of dust on the dresser in mine and my friend had to wear flip flops in the shower it was that bad. Staff were lovley. Pitty about the place though.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"Good facilities and friendly staff..."
Travelling on business, I have simple requirements which were all met: Clean room, tea and coffee, restaurant onsite, swimming pool (to use if you have the energy), breakfast of your choice, lots of parking and professional staff.Genuine Expedia guest review
"The Hotel Room"
The hotel in itself was ok but the room was very dated and old fashioned. Little things like lightning was poor. Also no toilet paper holders and the unhygienic looking bath mat that we were required to use was very off putting. Other than the room I did not enjoy the breakfast and even though I only had one sausage beans and toast I was charged a full […] 10 euro for the breakfast which I thought was unfair. The staff however well lovely and I could not fault the cleanliness of the room as it was spotless. I also had dinner at the hotel which was lovely. Overall Id give it 5 out of 10 and that's because of the staff the surrounding area was gorgeous to look at Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

The hotel is comfortable, though oldstyle. Very family friendly. Staff were courteous and helpful. I had dinner in the bar one evening and was not impressed. Overall it is a middle of the road hotel which is adequate and convenient to the town.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"don't recommend this hotel"
Person who received us at reception was unfriendly. Very noisy during night. The hair dryer was spitting fire. The restaurant does not open until 9 AM on sunday. We had to leave at 7 AM. No place to hang things in the bathroom. toilet did not flush properlyGenuine Expedia guest review
"Modest hotel, but good value and location."
Well, breakfast was good - lots of it. On day one we got coffee/tea brought to the table, but that service disappeared on the second and third days. Thought the "music" in the hall was dire - nobody was clapping either. The shower in our room only ran while the bath was filling up (the switching valve was defective). The room had not been made up by […] the time we returned at 3pm on the second day. The staff were friendly and helpful - and when asked for a fish restaurant in town gave us not only the one owned by the hotelier, but also a good up-market restaurant where we ate twice.

観光地にあるバス旅行の団体向きの大型ホテルで、部屋数が多く、スポーツ設備や催し物会場も完備している。 Bantry Houseのすぐ近くで、Ring of kｅｒｒｙへのアクセスも良い。 唯、ホテルが大きく部屋までに距離があり、３階建てではあるが、エレベーターの設備が不備なため大きな荷物を持っていると苦労する。Genuine Expedia guest review

We visited the Westlodge for my sisters wedding in January 2015. We were doing a lot ourselves eg. Flowers & decoration . The staff were so friendly, helpful and accomadating. They went above and beyond in everything we needed. We also had a lot of different food requirements and allergies. They also went out of their way to accomadate these. Some of us vegans some vegetarians and then dairy and nut allergies also some coeliacs. The alternative food they provided was DELICIOUS. The staff in this hotel were so friendly. I would recommend . In relation to the accomadation. It is an older hotel so nothing to write home about but very clean and cosy.
"Wedding Jan 15"
01/16/15 Heather D
On the 10th Jan 15 we had our son and his beautiful new wife's wedding at the hotel.The staff were endlessly patient, friendly, cooperative and kind. Everything from the rooms to the meal we had to celebrate the wedding was beyond our expectations. Everyone was delighted. Pat , the manager, was fantastic to deal with and came up with a great deal for the rooms which was a great help. The night before the wedding some guests arrived quite late as their flight was delayed, but the hotel accommodated them beautifully with food etc . I could go on and on but I'll just say that I would HIGHLY recommend this hotel for any special event as you are guarenteed a wonderful time. Thankyou Westlodge!

Stayed here for 1 night with 5 friends recently and couldnt fault it,i read some of the negative reviews before i came so i was a little sceptical.Neither myself nor any of my 5 friends can say anything but good things about the hotel since our visit. we arrived early,well before check-in but there was no problem with this and we were looked after straight away,The manager was in the reception area when we arrived and we were given a very warm welcome. The bar area was spotless,here we had a quality beer served by a friendly efficient bar maid, the menu was well priced and covered all tastes,6 clean plates were returned by us,so no complaints on the quality of food! Obviously this is not a 5 star hotel,but it is definitely the best value for money hotel i have stayed in,i will certainly stay here again,and for a longer stay next time. Breakfast was spot on and again 6 clean plates were returned! Hats off to the management and staff of the westlodge and best of luck for the year.
"Classic and warm"
We came here for one night for my husband's birthday on 7th January. I made a special request for a surprise birthday cake for him and at the westlodge they made it a very special moment. Check in was quick and easy. The room is average sized but cozy with very comfy beds. The decor is original and classic. This hotel has been a landmark in Bantry for decades and is still beautiful. Dinner was very intimate and food arrived quickly. The food is actually very good. Kudos to the chef! I love the side salads with every dish. My husband enjoyed the stay, the food, the leisure centre and his birthday and westlodge made it all possible under short notice. I do recommend. Although it is a bit different from other hotels you need to have an open mind and remember how long this hotel had been operating. The staff and service is exceptional. They do everything possible to ensure you have a great stay and that is what counts. They have 10/10 for hospitality.
On a weekend break checking out potential venues for our wedding. Similar to another review, looks good from the outside, we had a shabby and cold bedroom. To top things off, a fire alarm went off numerous times after midnight, on checkout, not even an apology. Needless to say, won't be considering this hotel for our wedding.

We stayed here Sat 29/11/14, we booked the B+B and evening meal option, Booking in was fast & efficient by friendly welcoming staff, our room was comfortable and warm with plenty of storage space for our overnight bags, Not enough pillows in the room but a phone call to reception sorted that problem for us, The tv channels were Saorview which were just fine for us because we were heading out for the night and the tv wouldn't be on too long for us anyway, A small bathroom containing a combined bath and shower with plenty of hot water but the shower was like something form the 70s' and to avoid getting scalded you'd have to adjust the water temperature before using the shower, the meal in the Restaurant was honestly one of the nicest meals we've ever eaten, the restaurant staff couldn't do enough for us and the service and meal were just fantastic, the hotel bar was a bit quiet (time of the year) but the receptionist arranged a taxi to take us to town, breakfast next morning was a buffet with plenty of cereals and juices to chose from and a hot Irish breakfast where you pick what goes on your plate, didn't get the chance to check out the pool or gym, checking out was very easy and didn't take too long, we enjoyed our stay and would stay there again.

Stayed in September , looks lovely from the outside , enter and you are back in the 70s all areas need to be upgraded very dated no love and care to the building , however staff were very friendly and food was fine

I had lunch two days running here, different front of house staff, so presume different crew in the kitchen . Both meals very good and pleasant staff out front, one Irish one not Irish. The other important thing the toilets were spotless.

We stayed in the Westlodge Hotel for the Bank Holiday weekend. We were informed immediately upon booking that it was a rally weekend and so it might be noisy, not that it was going to be a problem for us as we were going specifically to see the rally, but we felt it was very fair of the staff to mention it as a lot of places might have said nothing! The hotel is lovely, the rooms are a good size, perhaps a little out dated but they were clean and had everything we needed. We ate in the hotel on one night and the food was lovely. We attended the rally prize giving event in their function room on Sunday night and had a fantastic evening. With the exception of one waitress who appeared to simply not want to be there, every other staff member was extremely friendly and helpful. And as it happened there was no excessive noise but just the perfect location to be see all the excitement of the rally. The hotel is just a few minutes drive from the town which is a lovely place to just stroll around. All in all a lovely weekend and we would recommend a visit to Bantry and a stay in the Westlodge hotel.
