Stayed during a conference. Rooms are nice. Very clean. Interconnecting doors do lead to some noise though. Staff were the best I have come across in a long time. Nothing was a problem. Food was okay but perhaps if we were not eating as a large group it would be better. Layout a bit confusing as in 2 separate towers.... More

I stayed in the Clayton for business. Room was clean and comfortable. Reception staff were very helpful and the lady that brought up breakfast to my room at 7.30am was cheery and polite! traffic noise woke me a few times during the night. Hotel needs better signage to help locate it from n17 side. But lovely hotel in general.

Dear original75, Thank you so much for posting such a great review. Approach signage is one of those areas that we'll be addressing over the next few months so I hope you'll notice an improvement the next time you travel to Galway. Best regards Rory Fitzpatrick General Manager More

Visited this hotel for a Business trip and it was really lovely. Checked in early no problem staff very friendly. room grand near the traffic but still quite enough.

Recently stayed here over the St. Patrick's break. Room on the 4th floor. Lovely comfortable bed, nice shower, hair dryer in front of a mirror (bonus)! However, the room just wasn't 100% clean, could have done with another hoover and large stains on the floor are very off putting. I understand that it might be permanent damage and if so... More

Stayed here for The Johnny Brady Weekend in February. Had an enjoyable stay in a very clean and friendly hotel. Ate in the bar and the restaurant and the food was top class.

This is an extremely comfortable Hotel, it is located off a busy intersection on the main road. What this hotel lacks in scenic location it makes up for in convenience, proximity to a shopping centre, five minutes from Galway City and comfortable rooms. However the main attraction at this Hotel is its staff, they are easily the most friendly and... More

The Clayton Hotel is a lovely hotel with large, well appointed rooms and excellent facilities. I have stayed here twice for conferences and have enjoyed a restful and relaxing stay on both occasions.

The Clayton Hotel impressed me with the quality of the rooms and the small things that make a hotel work. The most impressive was the heated mirror in the bathroom that kept the center part from fogging! The food in the restaurant is top notch and the lounge is a pleasant place to spend part of the evening. The locations... More

If you would like to stay away from the craziness of a city centre nightlife then this is the place for you. The hotel is really well finished and the rooms are very comfortable with a drench shower head and well kitted out. The beds were extremely comfortable. The breakfast was excellent and I especially liked the chocolate croissants, so... More
