We turned up on a Sunday mid summer without a booking and were lucky to get a room.
The price was good at €89 for the double .
When we turned up in the restaurant for dinner at 7pm, the restaurant was fully booked ! A reservation would be a good idea. However as residents they made a table available for us.
The staff, settings and menu are all of a very high standard.
Large portions of ( fish) for dinner.
But as a 'grand old' hotel, it is exactly that. Big rooms, big bathrooms, high ceilings. Don't expect modern frippery.
Right in the center of town , exactly where you want to be.
I'd recommend it highly.

Stayed here for two nights. Got a room at the front with a bay window. Room very bright and spacious. Huge and very comfortable bed. Bathroom a bit dated but the shower was fab. Great Curtis which when closed, even in the middle of the day, made the room really dark. Even though we were on the main street there wasn't a lot of noise.

Loved this hotel, loved the character of it, the staff, the food, the bar and the bizarre outdoor area. Yes the carpets are ancient and the decor has age but it is spotless. As a carpet fitter myself the fact that they are probably 50 years old and in such good condition only reflects on the very high standards of the hotel staffs quality and work ethic over that time. The breakfast was the best I ever had in a hotel with quality ingredients. Beds were very comfortable, plenty of hot water in high ceiling bathrooms. In the heart of Clifden too. Excellent value. Will return for sure

Room Tip: Older clients should go first floor as there is no lift

This is Clifden's oldest hotel. It's been run by the same family did many years. They do not have an elevator and promptly provided us help carrying our bags up two floors. Speaking of floors the whole place shows it's age with steeply sloping floors that bounce & creak as you walk across them. We were worried that we would fall through. It is centrally located.
