Catherine scored 5 / 5 on 18/03/2014

We had a very enjoyable stay in the Alcock & Brown Hotel Clifden. The staff were lovely and we really felt welcome and there was a definite personal touch to our stay. The food was excellent and we would have no hesitation in returning and I would definitely recommend it to family and friends. We hope to return there before the end of the year. Regards, Catherine Hurney and friends.

Our stay at the Alcock and Brown was delightful. It coincided with the local arts festival and some of the best September weather experienced in recent years. So it was win win win.

Brent scored 5 / 5 on 21/02/2012

There was a bit of a musty smell when we walked into the reception. However, the bedroom was fresh, clean and had everything you wanted. All staff were very friendly. The restaurant at night had a limited menu, but were really enjoyed the food. The breakfast was also cooked well. The tv could have been a little bigger. The hotel was in the centre of town and everything was within easy walking distance. We enjoyed our time at this hotel.

William scored 4 / 5 on 15/11/2011

We spent two nights in this hotel. It is under renovation with the first floor completed. There were a number of menus available to choose from depending of value choice. The food was good within the choice given and considering the time of year and the number of people in the area. The staff were very friendly and any request was no problem. The owners, Sharon and Declan made themselves known to us and paid particular attention to our comforts. Paula, was very interactive with us as we discovered we had visited other areas where she had worked. The hotel was very peaceful with plenty of oportunity to read. We really enjoyed our stay here and would have no hesitation in recomending this hotel to anyone and we look forward to coming back at some future time.
