Clayton Hotel Cardiff Lane
Ranked #32 of 150 Hotels in Dublin
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed January 8, 2014

We stayed in this hotel to see Wicked at the Board Gais theatre. The hotel was very handy for the theatre as well as the city (only a 15 minute walk away) and good value for money. The staff were very friendly and helpful. We would recommend this hotel although not their breakfast as it leaves a lot to be desired.

Not very well situated and room are just at the average in term of comfort.
I had to pay an extra-fee for having a hot chocolate for breakfast, which is weird. Moreover the breakfast itself is not very good and service could largely be better!

If you are going to anything in the Bord Gais Energy Theater this hotel could not be any more convenient!
We stayed here when going to see Wicked at the weekend and it was great.
The free use of the pool sauna steam room and jacuzzi was a nice plus its so rare that a hotel in ireland would have a pool.
Breakfast was fine pretty standard full Irish with loads of choice.
Would highly recommend this place as proximity to the Theater and competitive rate is what won me over

The Maldron Hotel is perfect for families as it has the pool facility and also great breakfast.
The staff are very helpful and have takeaway menus at reception to help keep costs down.It is super location for The Gasworks Theatre and Aviva and O2 concerts

The televisions are very old-fashioned and you cannot rent family movies in the room, that is my only negative with a family

We stayed here over the weekend of 9th November 2013. Absolute must of a hotel if going to the O2, and only a 20 minute walk into the city centre.

All I can say is we were treated fantastically by all staff, who whilst busy were courteous and friendly at all times. Room was great, clean (which is a must for me) massive big bed, bar was lovely, breakfast super.

To my discredit I can't remember the names of the staff (to include reception, bar staff, restaurant staff, breakfast staff) who were on duty over Saturday 9th and Sunday 10th November 2013. If you can it would be well deserved to let them know that they are doing a great job and are appreciated.

Would not hesitate to stay here again and have recommended you to family and friends.

A very good experience overall: it was nice and clean, and the staff was friendly. Restaurant a bit pricey (two large bottles of water alongside the meal cost 10e!).

Breakfast (10 e) was very nice, and the room service surprisingly delivered us pizzas on New Year's Day that were among the Top 3 we had ever had. We didn't try the spa or gym, but from what we heard it was excellent.

Wi-Fi was quite unreliable, and could not handle streaming video at all. TV was last-century and small, and had some problems with static. The plumbing in the bathrooms was not as good as back home in Finland, but satisfactory.

Room Tip: Non-smokers remember to book a non-smoker room if you don't like the smell of cigarettes.
