“Loved every minute!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 September 2011

We stayed here for 1 week with our 15 month old son.
It was so homely, staff in reception were just so welcoming and friendly, never met a nicer bunch!
Was really impressed with accomodation, apt was so spacious, our son just loved running around.
Kitchen fully equiped with microwave, dishwasher, washing machine/dryer, cooker etc.
They had fresh milk in the fridge with tea/coffee which I thought was a nice touch. They supplied towels and had a heated towel rail in bathroom. Rooms were spotless and athough bedrooms were dark it worked out great as our son slept through the night and didn't wake till 9am!
Downstairs is a beautiful wine bar with a kiddies play room attached, oh it was brilliant especially as weather wasn't the best! Hubbie used sauna, steam room and jacuzzi and was very happy with them.
Also they provided a cot and highchair free of charge, and they have DVD player and lots of dvds in reception to choose from (also free)!

You get free admission to the swimming pool in the town which was a bonus!

Really cannot fault this place and we are already discussing when we will return!

We have just spent 4 nights at the Harbour Mill Apartments and have been there many times before. The rooms were all of a high standard and very warm and quiet and the reception staff were very friendly, informative and helpful. The sauna, steam room and jacuzzi were a welcome relief after a long days walking. There was fresh milk and tea and coffee for us when we arrived which was much appreciated. We couldnt fault anything about this place and its all down to the staff who do an excellant job

We will be back again soon. A few tips for people staying here. If possible do the Croagh Patrick walk and also a visit to Kylemore Abbey should not be missed and naturally no trip to Westport would be complete without going to Achill Island. Lastly thanks again to all the staff.

Room Tip: The sea view rooms are worth every penny

Really impressed by the space and cleanliness of the apartment. Had all appliances that you would need and in a great location. We stayed in a Harbour View apt which had a gorgeous view and meant the apt had lots of light coming in. Im not sure if this would apply to the courtyard view rooms as it didnt get much natural light. There was a fantastic play room that our 5 and 3 year old thought was the biz!
The location is a few minutes out of the main town (which suited us fine) but it would be too far to dander in with young children. That said, there are lots of restaurants, bars and convenience shops along the quay if you dont fancy heading into town and we had some gorgeous meals just a stonesthrow from the apartment. Westport house is a short stroll from the building and some beautiful beaches are only a ten minute drive away. We enjoyed our stay so much that we stayed a few extra nights and will def be back.

Room Tip: Harbour View brighter, lovely view

Accommodation was excellent - it was what it said on the tin! Spacious, comfortable, clean. There were even teabags and coffee and a pint of milk to start us off!
Staff were most friendly, welcoming and helpful from the time of booking.

One small minus - hot water boiler a trifle noisy. We turned it off at times but had to remember to turn it on again when required.
Wi Fi service while free was very sporadic.

All in all a good experience.
