Having taken groups all over the world for 37 years I can honestly say that the evening meals here are second to none – beautifully cooked with quality ingredients.

Many thanks from my group

"I cannot recommend the hotel and the staff enough to friends and family with young kids and only a short drive from Cork city"

Mary Horgan, Cork, - via email - stayed May 2013

I just wanted to thank all at the Westlodge for a lovely stay with you over the Bank Holiday. This is my third [or perhaps fourth] year coming down to Bantry for the Bank Holiday. As always my mother & I remark on the genuine friendliness of all the staff. It is a very good sign of a hotel to see the same staff faces year in, year out! I specifically asked for a room in a quiet part of the hotel and got exactly that. This was really much appreciated. And on both the Sat. & Sunday night when we ate with you, nothing was too much trouble & as always the food was lovely.

In addition on the Sunday two people came into the leisure centre who were not staying at the hotel or members of the centre but hoped to be able to shower after the run before heading back to Cork. The girl behind the desk was incredibly helpful to them, offering them togs so they could go for a swim/sauna as well as shower. They were very impressed with the service.

The grounds as always looked fantastic. So thank you yet again & we look forward to visiting again next year.


Cora C. from Galway - Tripadvisor review - stayed January 2013

I welcome the opportunity to share my experience of the Westlodge Hotel. Having stayed there on a B/B basis at the beginning of this year for the first time, I found the bedrooms spacious and clean and the beds very comfortable. The Dining Room has panoramic views of the surrounding lush green countryside and of Bantry Bay and the breakfast menu is varied and tasty. I noted that the hotel provides packed lunches on request making it ideal as a base for touring the West Cork area either individually or as part of a Walking or Cycling group. Massage is available and the Leisure Centre has a nice Swimming Pool and a well equipped Gym.

In my view the biggest asset of this hotel is their caring, efficient and friendly Staff who made sure we were well looked after during our stay. As we were leaving on the Sunday my Companion suddenly took ill and needed to be hospitalised. I can honestly say that without the generosity and support of the Management & Staff, the whole situation would have been so much more difficult to deal with. They went above & beyond the "call of duty" in their efforts to be of service to us - even paying a number of hospital visits during the two weeks my friend was in ICU. So well done John Paul & all the Staff. You have restored our faith in the goodness of Humankind and we look forward to enjoying further times at the Westlodge where we know we will receive a warm welcome. You offer a pleasant and efficient service with attention to personal care which is greatly valued and appreciated.

We have stayed at the hotel a few times since that first week-end and each time have been happy with the consistency and standard of service extended to us and so are happy to recommend it to others.
