Recent reviews

Very good 8.0 From 23 reviews

Exceptional 10.0
Art and Aviation
The Alcock and Brown hotel is right bang in the heart of Clifden. It scores well above average for the art on the walls, and for the bar décor: pictures and the very readable story of the aviation feat of Alcock and Brown one hundred years ago, a fantastic story - so go read it and be amazed. The staff are knowledgeable and very helpful. Everything is impeccably clean and painted and carpeted so more than full marks for a 3star hotel. It does not have a lift. The cooked breakfast is high quality, the brown bread and croissants are very good but there aren't any fruit salads, just some apples and oranges. There is a nice exterior terrace on the street so a good place in fine weather.
