We've just arrived back from a 2 night stay at the clayton-and even though it's our 4th time staying there(whichs says a lot) Its always a pleasure. It's a lovely hotel,located just as you enter Galway city. The check in was friendly and quick with Sarah giving us all the info we needed about breakfast,leisure facilities,swimming pool etc. My husband had booked us an executive suite(the first time we had stayed in one of these) as it was our first new years as a married couple. :) As lovely as the standard rooms are-we will definitely be staying in the executive suites the next time. What a fabulous room. There was plenty of storage space. Everything else you would require,ironing board,fridge,hair dryer,extra towels and blankets etc. The living room part was very comfy with 2 leather couches plus a table and chairs. The bed......well if I could have fitted it into the car,I would have brought it home with us!! It was the most comfortable bed I've EVER slept in. I didn't want to get out of it. The bathroom was absolutely beautiful and spotlessly clean with a lovely bath and a MASSIVE walk in shower-we could have fitted about 15 people in it. :) They supplied 2 bathrobes too. We went for breakfast on both mornings which was lovely. They do a buffet breakfast with loads of continental meats and cheeses,fresh fruit,yogurts and pastries plus a fully cooked breakfast. There are scrambled eggs available as part of the buffet-but you can ask for poached or fried eggs if you like. I have to say it was one of the nicest breakfasts we've had in a long time. On the second night-which was new years eve-we went for our meal in the enclosure bar. The service here was excellent. We were looked after by 2 young gentlemen called Shane and Donal ( the hotel should be very happy to have such fantastic staff members working for them). They could not do enough for us,and were very friendly. The food was amazing,we had the Caesar salad followed by the sirloin steak,which was cooked just to our liking. There was music in the bar that night. And an overall nice friendly atmosphere there. That's why we love the clayton so much and keep returning. You feel at ease there. It's like a home away from home. I've only recently joined tripadvisor hence why I'm only writing the review after this stay. But I can wait to return again. :)
