"VERY noisy place."
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.

"close to shops"
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.

"You have to heat your rooms!"
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

"Good location"
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.

"Excellent location in Clifden town square"
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.

"Very good value Hotel in town centre"
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.

"Ok til prisen."
Hotellet ligger godt placeret i Clifden. Værelserne er ok, men basale. Wifi i værelserne havde flere afbrydelser i længere tid. Morgenmad var god og frisk lavet. Vil bo på hotellet igen hvis vi atter kommer til Clifden.

"Traditionelles Hotel in zentraler Lage"
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.

"Perfecto!"
07/29/15 aisling n Galway, Ireland
I just stayed in this hotel and I had a really pleasant stay. The hotel is right smack bang in the middle of the town so you can easily find your way back after a few pints. The staff were very pleasant and the price was very reasonable. I would definitely come back again.

Had a lovely lunch with my sister-in-laws. Nice room with view of the town square. Comfortable chairs. Delicious pot of tea. Club sandwich with wonderful Irish ham. Indian themed chicken sandwich that was delicately and perfectly seasoned. Delectable, locally caught crab sandwich. All breads were excellent. A very good place to have lunch!

We stayed here with our family on our tour of the west of Ireland, the hotel is dated in appearance, not the most pleasing looking establishment in clifden, in saying that we were willing to overlook this aspect as its located is just fantastic, right in the centre of town.. and the staff were nice, if you do stay here talk a walk up sky road... its located about a kilometer from the hotel.. and its got some breath taking views!

Can't fault the hotel. We stayed for one night and had a great family room on the top floor at the front with a view of the centre of Cliften. The hotel itself reminds me of an old style continental hotel. Price wise was very competitive.

Recently returned to the Alcock and Brown when over in the Clifden area on holidays with friends. We had the pleasure of having dinner on one of the evenings which proved to be a wonderful experience. Both Sharon and Declan provide a warm welcome and serve up some of the finest food on the Western seaboard.

Rooms facing the square are best with fab view of town. Breakfast very good. with good athmosphere. Clifden has good vibe to it with excellent Pubs & Award winning Resturants. A spin to Kylemore, Ballyconnelly and Roundstone are a must.

It has been a really good time at the Alcock & Brown Hotel, a clean and warm place where it is easy to relax and feel comfortable. I definitely recommind it as a nice and quiet hotel to stay with really kind and smily staff who helped us a lot with all we needed. We stayed there for 4 nights and did not have any problem. Also the food was a big surprise for us, specially the people who work there. We are very grateful for their service and attention. We have already told some friends to go there.

We stayed at a B&B in Clifden but went for dinner at Alcock & Brown Hotel every evening of our stay. The food was always outstanding, very special and delicious and have more than fair prices for this. We had a great time with the very friendly personnel and they gave us great tipps on places to see.
