Stayed here for our anniversary. The room was lovely and clean, bathroom was a nice size, also very clean. We had some delicious food in the restaurant there, the portions weren't very big, but they usually aren't in hotels so I don't count this as a complaint. The only downfall I had was the view, because of where the hotel... More

We had a lovely few nights here, a little way out of town but the service, accommodation and food made up for that. This was our trip of a lifetime and all our hotels made this a trip to remember. Would recommend to anyone staying in Galway.

Our group arrived here after spending a day on Inishmore. The rooms were very nice and the restaurant was first class. I had the beef ribs which were cooked to perfection. One of my most pleasant surprises in Ireland was to find world class chefs nearly everywhere we went. One lady in our group complained that the champagne was not... More

Stayed at th Clayton for two nights and my wife and I were very impressed. Staff were very friendly, especially Francis in the restaurant who really went above and beyond the call of duty. We will definitely be returning.

Stayed her with a number of family on 12th June. Hotel awkward to get at as it is on a major junction and signage not great at the junction. The beds in the rooms looked fab but were not very comfortable. The tea making facilities in the room were ok but I expected a biscuit as it is a four... More
