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.

Where do I begin....."if they paid me to stay I'd refuse" This was the worst hotel room I've ever stay in. The room looks and smells like the 1970s There was a huge damp patch on the ceiling. The shower didn't work and was very small and uncomfortable. The shower tray had a lage crack on it, and silicone was used to seal the dangerous crack. The curtains were disgusting and the views. Our room was freezing and you wouldn't swing a cat in it. This so-called hotel is a very poor reflection on what is a lovely location. Stay clear.

A very large pub, but with many sitting options for dinner. The place was fairly busy when we arrived without a reservation, but we were accommodated easily at a table near the musicians-in-residence who played well-known pop tunes all evening. The fare itself was of a vey good standard, be it seafood (chowder, fish-n-chips) or land produce (chicken) and well-prepared. Service was just as could be expected in a busy environment, polite, fast but not rushed. Although the musicians were good, they were a little loud as we were sitting a few metres only and it was hard to sustain a conversation. But apart from this the restaurant leaved to the words we had heard on it and provided a filling and tasty dinner, just what we needed.

Visited Belmullet overnight with the family, booked Western Strand at short notice and got a room for three. It was great value at €100 for three and if i was to be picky they did not do breakfast and the mattress in the doble bed could do with changing. Staff were helpful and will be back to Belmullet

We popped in for lunch after a day on the beach (it was a mega hot day!) I had the chicken curry and it was huge (and delicious). Friendly staff, as always in this part of the world, clean, friendly vibe, would 100% recommend. My only slight issue (and it's not really their fault) was that it was very hot. It was a lovely sunny day and the room we ate it was like a sauna. Maybe a fan or leaving some doors open on a hot day might help. Overall, a great place in a beautiful part of the world.

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.
