Doors slamming all night and the pub on the corner offered live music that spilled out into the street. Hot stuffy room and no relief by opening windows with all that street noise going on. Not a good spot for a good night's rest.

Rooms are small. Bedding is great. Bathrooms very small with no counter space. We arrived very hungry after 9pm on a Tuesday night and found the kitchen was closed. Hostess was not helpful in helping us find a local place to eat.

It was very cold on the day we stayed, and the heat would not come on in the room. We called reception and were told the heat is on a timer and, basically, to suffer through it. My wife was sick and it was distressing to see her put on multiple layers and still shiver under the blankets. Obvious hairs in bath and around commode

Hotel was comfortable. Bathroom could do with a make over and bath mat should have been thrown out! Breakfast was good and staff were very nice. Evening meal was very disappointing as the steak was burned and the chicken curry was just ok. The hotel itself is ideally located in the middle of the town.

Hotel is in an ideal location in the centre of Clifden. The hotel dining room and reception area is beautiful but the rooms need upgrades. Very small with hard mattresses and pillows. Musty smell from carpets in the hallway. Overall. You get what you pay for. Great budget hotel.

Enjoyed my stay and couldn't find much fault at all with the hotel and restaurant. Room was spacious with a very good bathroom and comfortable bed. Not all rooms have a view of the streetscape though, but those that do look right down the street of this pretty little town. I would have liked a fridge in the room, but there wasn't one. Staff helpful, and restaurant waiters efficient and polite, but I didn't find them particularly friendly. The hotel is in ideal position within the town.

Wonderful service. Great food. Convenient location. Only disadvantage was no lift although it did not bother us. It could be a problem for some people. Would definitely go back again to this hotel. It is close to the bus stop if you don't have a car. Convenient to places such as the ferry to Inishboffin island, Kylemore Abbey and Leenane.

Gute Lage, direkt im Stadtzentrum. Uns vielleicht ein wenig zu "britisch", also zu "traditionell" (altbacken). Hat sicherlich schon bessere Tage erlebt. Scheint Investitionsstau zu geben unser Badezimmer war nur soeben akzeptabel. Angemessener Preis, dafür allerdings schlechte Lage des Zimmers zum Hinterhof, wo die ganze Zeit (auch in der Nacht) eine laute Lüftungslage lief. Keine hoteleigenen Parkplätze, sondern Parken in der Innenstadt.

"Ouch my back still hurts from an uncomfortable night here"
05/24/15 Terlt Dingle
This hotel is in the centre of clifden which is a bonus. The staff were lovely and friendly. We had a baby and a buggy so no lift up to the room was a barrier......we were told that we could put the buggy under the stairs but at the price we paid for it I prefer to have it with me. The room was fine but the beds and the pillows were so uncomfortable and we have sore necks and backs, not sure I have ever seen such a small tv screen!. On the first morning, afternoon and evening the water was warm but not hot. The breakfast seemed reheated or kept warm for a long time as the rashers were dry and hard. We paid €270 for 2 nights which was very much overpriced for what we got. All in all it was disappointing and we will not be going back.

We stayed here for just one night. Very friendly check in. Very helpful and full of info. The room itself was fine. A real lack of bed side plugs for charging s phone etc. I found two in the entire room. It's a must in this day and age. Breakfast was nice. Overall a pleasant stay at a decent price.

"A comfortable and reasonable sstay in a good hotel in Clifden, Galwway"
04/29/15 Patrick H
My wife and I are just back from a 3 day stay in the Alcock and Brown Hotel in Clifden, Galway. Whilst the hotel itself is not the most modern hotel we have ever stayed in, nevertheless there was a lot to comment on positively. Firstly the room was spacious, spotlessly clean with good ensuite facilities. The freshly cooked breakfast each morning was a great start to each day. We dined on 2 evenings and the food was superb with ample quantity. All the staff we encountered were very friendly and were eager to please.

"Big surprise in little town of Clifden, i.e."
04/24/15 Joan J Port Angeles
While traveling Ireland in a rental car that drives on a different side of the road that we are used to, life can be challenging. When you come across a small hotel in a strange area that more than fulfills your needs it is an overwhelming treat. Alcock & Brown in Clifden Connemara was a great surprise. We drove past dozens of B & B's, just wanting a small hotel and there it was. We received a pleasant welcome from the relatively new owners and the price was reasonable and the room was pleasant and comfortable. We had dinner there as well which was wonderful and the chef was so nice in providing foods that were not on the menu. Breakfast also was made to order. I would recommend this hotel to anyone.

""Welcoming family run hotel in a central location!!""
04/20/15 Marie M Monaghan, Ireland
Stayed here for a weekend and had a great time. Declan, Sharon, their family and staff are so friendly and welcoming. The rooms are nicely decorated, warm and clean. Breakfast is cooked to order which is a plus in my book and dinner was superb. The hotel is located right in the heart of Clifden, easy access to beautiful scenic dives, runs etc and central for enjoying nightlife....... I would stay here again, thanks to all for making this a perfect break away..

We stayed here for a hen weekend and I cannot recommend it more. They were so accommodating and friendly. They even kept the residents bar open for us. The food was sublime. I had the seafood tagliatelle and it was amazing, so fresh! The front desk were very helpful and always went out of their way to do whatever they could.

"Fantastic Weekend in Family run Hotel The Alcock and Brown"
03/31/15 Bernie C Castleblayney, Ireland
On arrival at the Alcock and Brown recently we were welcomed by the owner Declan.The hotel is family run and very homely.There was a fire lit in the foyer and the bedrooms were warm and comfortable.The breakfasts are cooked to order and very tasty.The evening meal was delicious. We were really well looked after by Declan ,Sharon and the family as well as their friendly staff. Ideally located in the centre of town with fab views of the town this is definitely a hotel I will be going back to.Can't wait.
