Food in bar was good but service was painfully slow. A few people were waiting and one couple got fed up and left. Ordered a chicken and mango burger via room service the following day which...

I stayed with my fiancée for 2 nights. The hotel is immaculate and the staff are excellent. The room was spotless, pool was clean and relaxing. The bar and food was quality. If you are going to Galway, this is the perfect place to stay. We will be back!

Twenty four of us went to the Clayton Hotel for my niece's Hen Party. We had two nights bed and breakfast, cocktail lesson, dinner and a space reserved with bubbles in Karma nightclub. From start to finish, the weekend was brilliant. The hotel was really busy, with a large wedding, another large hen party, birthday party - but the staff... More

First off, the room itself was 8/10. It was clean (bathroom could have been polished more), however; it was noisy in the corridors most of the night and could hear a function...2 floors below. Receptionist were ok on check-in, lovely on check-out. The restaurant menu was from the 1990's, so opted for the bar, which was totally lacking floor staff.... More

Had the pleasure of staying here for 3 nights recently and enjoyed every minute of it. We upgraded to a Suite on the 4th Floor which was well worth the money. The room was spacious with huge windows and a sitting area. The bed was enormous and so comfortable. I particularly enjoyed the big bath which was ideal for relaxing... More

Came here on a few occassions recently and had great food each visit. The bar staff Francis and Gary were our servers and I can not fault them. Both are friendly people and catered to our needs. The service was excellent. I had a bit of a funny order but I wasn't made to feel like an awkward customer as... More

We enjoyed our stay in this hotel, the facilities are great and we slept very well. It was nice to be able to relax in a hot bath after a day of sightseeing. Close to the city without the hustle and bustle it suited us very well.

Now understand the last time I was in Galway four years ago, I stayed in a youth hostel. No, I was not going through a mid-life crisis pretending to be a post-adolescent backpacker. It was part of a package tour from Dublin, and I didn't read the small print where it said the default accommodations consisted of a room with... More
