Once again the clayton hotel was an amazing stay again! My partner booked a 2 night stay June bank holiday weekend for my birthday, he originally booked the presidential suite but unfortunately it was double book because there was a wedding on. Rory explained about the mistake and gave up a executive suite instead. We had a fabulous 3 course... More

We're already planning our next stay. Upon check in and in light of an email I had sent during the week, we were upgraded to an Executive suite on the Presidential Floor! 😊 to help us mark the occasion of my partner's birthday and my graduation results! We were delighted and even more so when we saw our room. Sitting... More

Trip to Galway, to do some sightseeing, chose this hotel purely on the basis of cost. Wanted a 4* hotel, this was the cheapest available on the day. Had a triple room (teenage daughter too). Arrived on a friday, left saturday. Had booked using web, so at check-in just a credit card swipe require, but a very unfriendly/unwelcoming receptionist (name... More

I visited the clayton recently for a 1 night stay, I arrived late to the hotel so asked for a late check out at 1pm the following day, where the young receptionist said "fine" . We went to our room to relax & freshen up before we got some dinner, only to find the tap on the shower was broken... More

This is a clean hotel with comfortable beds and a good shower. They stop serving food early and you need to rely on vending or room service if you want food with drink in the bar after 10PM. The free wifi is excellent. For visitors, this is not centrally located to attractions. It is in a business park area so... More

I stayed here for 1 night in a twin room (163). I can't fault the place, a really friendly welcome, a clean, lovely room (it was massive too!) and by bed was so comfortable I skipped breakfast to lie in for a few extra hours! It's on the bus route too, 30 mins into town so bear that in mind... More
