Stayed here with my fiancée last week. From the minute we arrived to the minute we left, we could not fault this hotel at all. Unlimited use of the leisure centre too went down a treat, the water was nice and warm. Very helpful staff in the bar, made recommendations for us as my fiancée was drinking non alcoholic beer....

Lovely hotel, Room was really nice and bright, bed was really comfortable. Restaurant is nice. Plenty of room. Food was very good there was a hen night also. They all got to sit together, Which was great for them. Good variety for breakfast, scones were lovely. Plenty of parking, which is great. Would definitely stay again.

This hotel was part of our Aer Lingus fly/drive/hotel package. It is about a 10 minute drive to central Galway sites. All day parking in downtown surface parking lot was 8 Euros. This breakfast was included in our package and had a bit of everything. We would rate this at 4 to 4.5 stars on a 5 star scale. We... More

just back from a conference in galway and we were put up in this very pleasant hotel. The rooms were lovely, the food was lovely and the atmosphere was lovely. Usually at conferences they throw any sort of food at you but the food was lovely throughout, It seems they can transform the conference hall in a matter of minutes... More

We stayed at the Clayton for 2 nights in March 2014. We found the staff to be polite and helpful and friendly. Our room was good, the bar area was very busy all weekend with various events taking place day and night but despite that it is a pleasant area with a good atmosphere. There is live music there in...

The breakfast was fantastic, probably the best breakfast spread I've come across! There wasn't one member of staff that wasn't nice, they were... More
