Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We enjoyed our visit last night to the Western Strands. The ambiance was cosy on a very cold night. The food was excellent and served by attentive staff. The hotel in the centre of Belmullet was very busy with lots of Christmas parties but that did not impact on the efficient service.

Several people in the town recommended this place. We were not disappointed. The food was beautifully prepared. The portions were enormous and the prices were very reasonable. The staff could not have been more helpful. I heartily recommend this establishment. David is doing a marvellous job.

I stayed in the Western Strands for the first time & eventhough I had been to the place a few times for drinks & for a meal, I had never stayed in their accommodation. I was pleasantly surprised at the room & how modern & well appointed the entire place was. I just had a single ensuite room which was recently renovated & everything was pristine & the bed was so comfortable. This was particularly appreciated since I had just completed a five hour drive. I was greeted by a pleasant young receptionist who gave me a key to room 6. The room was modern, comfortable & well appointed. There was a little bit of noise from the downstairs bar but that finished as soon as I was ready to retire to my room. I managed to get parking nearby & the bar does food untill 9.00. I was very impressed with everything & I was greeted briefly by the very helpful proprietor, Dave, who made sure everything was satisfactory. I will look forward to staying again at the Western Strands.

Just after having a night away in Belmullet. Stayed in this guesthouse, David was so welcoming, the premises is basic guesthouse on a budget. My dietary needs were accommodated for & David was on hand to ensure we were satisfied with our meal. The waiting staff were so polite. There are renovations being done & a beautiful area for dining. Breakfast is served until noon & without doubt the selection & standard is the best we have had. I would highly recommend if you don't stay just even call for food, you will not be disappointed.

We spent 4 nights at the Western Strands hotel recently. David and his team treated us so well from the time we arrived. Such a homely atmosphere in the hotel. We ate breakfast and dinner there each day and night. The food was excellent. We also enjoyed an afternoon of kayaking with the Wavesweeper guys which is also part of the hotel ownership. Eamonn was such a help with our 9 year old. Highly recommend the Western Strands for any visit to Belmullet.

While visiting Belmullet last week our group of 7 booked a meal in the outside area of the Western Strand. The service was second to none with friendly and helpful staff, however the amazing food was the high point, we all had fabulous meals and would highly recommend a visit.... really well priced and delicious.... also give the pornstar cocktail a try..... delicious

Booked a table for 8pm last night, we got there a little early and we were seated straight away (after our CoVid certs were checked). Brilliant friendly efficient staff, that took our food & drinks order promptly. My husband raved about the House special stir fry, the portion was huge and it was delicious. My main course was one of the specials the Roast Chicken with bacon, served with lovely mashed potatoes and veg. The manager and staff were all so welcoming. Definitely will call again when in the area. Keep up the great work.
