A very warm and friendly reception from the owner Des, and a welcome informative text before we arrived! Rooms were modern, tidy and spotlessly clean. All room facilities were fabulous, including free wi-fi, hot shower, fluffy towels and mini toiletries. Breakfast was excellent, with a choice of delicious cooked breakfast from a menu and a fully stocked breakfast bar with...

Found this to be pretty unhelpful and unfriendly. You need to let yourself in with a code for the front door. Room was very small and bed was way too short. The bathroom door could only open half way as it hit off the bed. Room was OK overall, faint smell of smoking but we slept well. Breakfast was OK...

We had reservations at The Elephant Guest House, upon arrival though the sign said 'Open', there was no one to greet us, the place was locked, upon further notice there was a number to contact. Standing outside of the house we reach the owner who told us she had car problems we identify ourselves and she gave us the code...

I'm confused at some of the previous reviews! Were they staying in the same place???? We found this charming little guest house far exceeded our expectations. Rooms were clean, functional and nicely decorated and not noisy. The bed was huge and comfy. The breakfast choice was extensive. (and tasted delicious!) The gentleman who served us, and greeted us upon arrival,...

We arrived at 5pm to a locked door and no instructions for entering the building. However, after finding the phone number on the reservation that I had fortunately printed out, we did find a number to call and were given instructions on how to access the room. We went in without our suitcases to use the bathroom first before lugging...

You can do a LOT better than this in Westport (a wonderful little town) The owner literally threw the keys at us, never showed us the room, and grunted the room number! He was in a FOWL mood ! He was so rude it made things so awkward the whole time. He just wanted his money and that was it....

I stayed here with my son and partner and a family friend. The owners are lovely, friendly people who cannot do enough for you. Rooms are finished to a high standard and breakfast was superb with a good selection of continental and cooked breakfasts including home made scones! The B&B is located in the centre of town within walking distance...
