Fodor's Review

In Westport's town center, this hotel welcomes guests with a warmly traditional wooden facade but once you are inside, a contemporary glass-roofed lobby becomes the centerpiece of a stylish modern interior decorated with original artworks. The current owners' parents opened the hotel in 1959, and it has been a well-loved Westport institution ever since. The Riverside Restaurant has formal dining,while Madden's Bistro remains a popular value-for-the-money eatery, with a busy local trade. Guest rooms are nicely decorated with cherrywood headboards backed by striking patterned fabrics. The back rooms are the quietest and have views of parkland and the river. Residents have free use of the public pool next door, and reception can arrange special rates for Westport House: ask when booking.
