The best hotel to stay in when visiting wonderful Clifden. Rooms are very comfortable, food is terrific and staff are very friendly and helpful! We will be back soon!

I just stayed in this hotel and I had a really pleasant stay. The hotel is right smack bang in the middle of the town so you can easily find your way back after a few pints. The staff were very pleasant and the price was very reasonable. I would definitely come back again.

Had a lovely lunch with my sister-in-laws. Nice room with view of the town square. Comfortable chairs. Delicious pot of tea. Club sandwich with wonderful Irish ham. Indian themed chicken sandwich that was delicately and perfectly seasoned. Delectable, locally caught crab sandwich. All breads were excellent. A very good place to have lunch!

Can't fault the hotel. We stayed for one night and had a great family room on the top floor at the front with a view of the centre of Cliften. The hotel itself reminds me of an old style continental hotel. Price wise was very competitive.

It has been a really good time at the Alcock & Brown Hotel, a clean and warm place where it is easy to relax and feel comfortable. I definitely recommind it as a nice and quiet hotel to stay with really kind and smily staff who helped us a lot with all we needed. We stayed there for 4 nights and did not have any problem. Also the food was a big surprise for us, specially the people who work there. We are very grateful for their service and attention. We have already told some friends to go there.
