This was our first time staying at the Clayton and I have to say it went beyond our expectations, staff are friendly and cannot do enough to help. It is a clean, comfortable hotel with good amenities. The swimming pool and gym are of a very high standard as are all the communal areas. We stayed in a suite which...

One of the greatest hotels that we have stayed. Wonderful view of the mountains, great breakfast and excellent service. For a hotel in a relatively small town this place takes the credit for one of the finest in its class and stands its ground compared to counter parts in other parts of the world. Great old world charm, good corridors...

My recent stay at the Clarion was less than ideal. I have read some recent reviews and others seem to have a similar issue. I have to laugh at the managements response to the reviews asking the customer to contact them to review this!!! I don't think its the customers position to contact a hotel looking for an answer. Plus,...

Dear Guest, While acknowledging a fault with our heating last weekend you also forgot to mention the manager (myself), came and spoke to you directly in the restaurant as soon as your complaint was brought to my attention. You may not recall but you were seated at table A5 in the restaurant and I spoke with you personally detailing the...

Everyone said the bedrooms were great and the food and staff in the restaurant was very nice. Personally I found the staff very friendly, helpful...

We were told reception would ring us on our mobile when it was ready but that didn't happen. I had to return to reception 2 more times to check if...

Stayed here while I was doing exams. Room was a long walk from reception, 5 hallways, felt like I was going to the back of beyond but nothing wrong with a bit of a walk :) I was sitting at the desk doing study and nearly froze. Had to put on jacket and scarf in the room and put the...

Dear Guest, Thank you for taking the time to review our property. The hotel does have long corridors as this is a beautiful old restored building with unique character and charm complimented by the large lawns and restored churches on the grounds. Did you call reception to inform them of the cold in your room? If so we would have...

Room was huge for 1 - rattling around in it- didn't realise that check in is at 4, but the girl at reception checked me in at 10:30am as a room was ready - appreciated that. The restaurant had stopped breakfast, so no food was available anywhere in the place until lunch - perhaps the restaurant could keep going as...

It's in the middle of nowhere. If you like that then great. All my groups rooms were massive. Huge lounge and bedroom. Decor was really bad. Plain white walls. Cheap 80's kitchenette, cheap curtains and bathroom fittings. I felt like I was in an office. Take lots of candles and incense and you'll be fine. Staff were lovely, sauna downstairs...
