The Clayton Whites Hotel is a legend inextricably woven into the social, cultural and artistic history of Wexford. From as early as 1715, local historians believe that a lodging house called The Kings Arms, existed close to the present site of the hotel. It is well recorded that Whites was a militiamens lodging house in 1779, surviving the bloody insurrection against the English in 1798 when the Coffee House was mentioned in the diary of a survivor. This Hotel has implemented a full range of enhanced sanitisation procedures and new practices which have been rigorously reviewed by Bureau Veritas, a trusted, independent global leader in tested, inspections and certification. Hotel had been accredited by Green Tourism, a certification program that provides a framework to achieve a sustainable business in the tourism industry.

Whites Hotel staff, restaurant and food are exceptional. Our room could have done with updating as the chairs were quite tatty and stains on the carpet, but it did not take from the overall experience
Nice hotel, good rooms, spacious, great pool area, stay went very well but unfortunately very slow service in the restaurant and bar areas. Plenty of bar staff but was ignored for 10mins. Not enough staff in restaurant causing long delays and wrong orders. Food was just average and quite small portions with sharing veg/mash bowl.
Great hotel. Lovely staff and great food. Had a twin room only complaint the beds were very narrow so didn't sleep well.
enjoyed our stay at whites hotel accomadation good. food very good staff also over all good experience
Excellent hotel - great service - great facilities - great food - great staff
Fantastic Hotel, perfect location to walk around the town. Kids Friendly. Staff were very helpful and pleasant. Rooms lovely and clean and very comfortable. Great View from the room and a super amazing deal with Lidl Breaks - thank you
Great hotel in a great location, staff are very helpful & friendly
my husband and I stayed 1 night for our anniversary. we found the Hotel really lovely and very comfortable, atmosphere great and staff so friendly. The food was very nice and breakfast was plentiful. Fantastic short break in a we will be back.
We had a wonderful time in every way. hotel was excellence .Lovely spot for shops pubs ect. I would say the waiter maybe should remind the guests if they are on a 2 course meal deal. We got a bill for desserts and some of us were not on the deal so it got a bit embarrassing.other than that it was super.. 5 Star.....
Great price, great hotel, great location, couldn't ask for more!
We booked a family room for 2 adults and 2 kids. Though we arrived early at 2.30pm our room was ready for us including the fridge we requested at short notice. Our room was on the 4th floor and had a lovely view towards the coast. Though a little worn in places, the room was perfectly clean and spacious with air conditioning. We were supposed to have a rollaway bed for the 2nd child but instead we had a proper bed added, which I much preferred. The kids loved the rice krispie buns left with a welcome note and details of the complimentary kids club too. All considered this break was excellent value and look forward to a return visit.
Very nice Hotel. Great Breakfast in the morning, swimming pool was great. Room was comfy and clean - everything you would want. Location is extremly central in Wexford Town. Endless pubs, shops and eateries to choose from. Would happily return for another visit.
Excellent Hotel well worth 5 stars
My wife and i stayed in this hotel for B&B and dinner on 21 December and we have nothing but great memories of our short stay. The food was excellent, the service was exemplary, the staff were courteous, friendly and highly efficient. The ambience of the hotel was very welcoming. We were so delighted with our stay in this hotel that we have decided to visit it again in the near future. Ciaran Shanahan
First class hotel. Rooms are very spacious and clean. Food was excellent from breakfast to dinner and the staff are very friendly and efficient. Good wifi throughout the hotel. No hesitation in recommending this hotel.
Clayton Whites hotel was above and beyond our expectations, from the reception desk to the room to the food, everything was first class. I would highly recommend this hotel.
Very disappointed with the room I got on arrival I had requested rooms on the second floor as I had 2 rooms booked they only gave 1 room on the second floor and 1 room on the 5th floor when I asked to be moved to the second floor I was told there was none available (this was untrue as I had spoke with people that only arrived on Saturday and got a room on the 2nd floor. The room on the 5th floor was not what you would expect from a 4 Star Hotel. The cleaning of the room was not the best when I returned from shopping on the Saturday there was dirty water in the sink and I had to ask for toiletries. It was my Mum's 90th Birthday treat and I felt this put a dampner on it. That was my third stay in the hotel . Just to mention I was also told that because of the price I got a standard room that being the 5th Floor. I think this should be mentioned when making the booking. Very dissatisfied Customer.
Lovely hotel, food was brilliant. Will certainly be back.
Really good. Got top floor upgrade for 10 per night. Staff are great.
Excellent value for money. Brilliant location. Only one minor complaint, no hair dryer in the bedroom on arrival.
Great hotel and spa Gym not great though
Very smooth and friendly check in, comfortable beds in a very clean and modern room. Great food (dinner and breakfast) with great service from very caring staff. We'll be back.
I had selected this hotel as I had stayed here previously, but since my last stay I found the hotel standards dropped. When we arrived to check in our room wasnâ€™t ready, we had arrived earlier and reception staff were very friendly and nice. They took our bags and said they would call us when the room was ready. We decided to have lunch in the bar, the food was good but the bar was a bit shabby. Some of the seats which were fabric covered were torn, the leather covered seats where worn and the table that was free was wobbly. Our food arrived and it was lovely. Shortly afterwards we got a call from reception that the room was ready. The room was clean, but the bed covers and the duvet were fairly worn and the duvet looked old and a bit grubby. The bathroom is ok but I canâ€™t understand why there is no shower curtain or proper drain in the shower as the water goes all over the floor and you end up having to use the towel to try mop up the water on the floor. That night we decided to eat in the bar, we arrived at 9.20 and one of the waitress gave us a menu and said she had a few people to serve and she would be back to us. The bar was busy that evening so it wasnâ€™t really an issue to wait, until the bar person told us that it was too late to order as the kitchen closed at 9.30, I was just about to say we have been here 10 mins but they she checked with the kitchen and it was ok to take our order. Our food arrived quickly and it was delicious. The next morning we went down for breakfast and the dining room was very busy but we were given a table quickly. The breakfast room was again shabby, our seats were slightly to low for the table, the cutlery and tea cups werenâ€™t properly cleaned, we had to take cutlery from another table. The breakfast bowls and plates were also grubby, it a combination of the plates being well used, as they felt slightly gritty but some of them still had food on them. I had to put a number of bowls and plates aside to find a clean one and I also noticed that that other guests who seen food on bowls were trying to wipe them but when they could they were just putting them back into the plies. I was going to say it to the manageress but she wasnâ€™t at the desk when we were leaving the dining room. The spa was closed for essential maintenance. It wasnâ€™t a major issue but it was one of the reasons I booked this hotel, so it might be an idea to have this on the site when booking.
We stayed in The Clayton White hotel for three nights last week. It was a lovely hotel. The staff were so helpful and friendly, every place was spotless and the food was great. I would highly recommend this hotel.
Quality of food good but not hot enough. Reception Staff & Bar Staff not very friendly .
Room not nice and dinner was very bad
The value with Lidl breaks was unbeatable. The Clayton Whites Hotel was a lovely experience, staff were very professional and friendly, and the food didn't disappoint. I will definitely return.
Very nice stay at Whites Hotel, staff were excellent as was the food. The rooms, bathrooms in particular could do with an upgrade. Apart from that its the best location in town.
I stayed in Whites for one night over the weekend. I paid extra to be upgraded to a superior room but there was nothing superior about it. We had an option to pick the Italian or the Terrace restaurant. We went for the Italian and it was horrible, very few dishes to select from and the food we ordered wasn't great. The room was clean but it was bit of a trek between the reception and our room. I personally wouldn't rate this as a four star hotel. The hotel is in a great location and is central to some great local pubs and right beside the shops.
Fantastic stay. Beautiful hotel with better breakfast than I would expect in a 5 star hotel. All staff were very helpful and especially the bar staff who went out their way to ensure guests were happy. I would prefer Irish reception staff and they could be a little friendlier as it is the 1st impression that guests receive. Also, I believe that the car park should be free. Other than these few points, we really enjoyed our stay and will be back again.
Absolutely fab break had by us all. The food was excellent, staff very friendly and very helpfull. Entertainment in the lounge very good. Leisure centre very clean and staff also very friendly. As we had children in our group we also noticed the hotel is very spacious and child friendly. Will definitely be going back.
Great location friendly staff excellent food and great hotel facilities will stay again in the future
Great hotel, great location, but the jewel in the crown of Whites is its staff whom we have always found to be very helpful
Had a lovely relaxing stay at Whites Hotel, the room was nice and spacious, breakfast was lovely, staff very friendly. Would recommend the afternoon tea with the bubbly - it was well worth the price.
Had a relaxing stay in Whites last week.In the room on arrival found the phone not to be working and the TV remote had no batteries however this was quickly addressed by a very pleasent manager who for the inconvenience furnished us with a complimentary bottle of wine.Food wise, you could'nt fault the menu, and the service was prompt and efficient! overall a very satisfactory experience.
Lovely hotel,fabulous food and staff could not be nicer.great deals available for spa also would definitely stay again
we had a lovely stay at whites the staff were very helpful and the food was great ,would stay again
Great location in the centre of town. Smooth check in and room was very spacious and spotless clean. We had dinner included and found staff to be very courteous and efficient. Food was very good also. Breakfast can be a bit chaotic as everything in the buffet is spread out quite far apart so it could take a while to actually sit down. All in all would definitely to back and we enjoyed our stay.
Overall pleased with hotel.lovely bright and spacious Food good staff friendly will return very centre for town
We had a wonderful stay in Whites. Full marks to the staff, they couldn't have been nicer. It was an exceptionally good value break - dinner and breakfast were lovely, I coudn't fault the room and we had full use of the gym & swimming pool. It was cheaper and far more fun than staying at home!
I enjoyed my stay in Whites . It is very central . I particularly enjoyed the Spa . I had a blissful hour there.I think the only issue I really had was the concept of a 'Superior room' ? which I opted for with a ten euro extra charge. I usually take the view that most people do not spend time in a hotel room anyway but I had decided because the weather was changeable I would have the added pleasure of a nicer room .I felt it was fairly standard to be honest. Anyway it was nice to see the hotel had a bit of a buzz in the lobby. There were plenty of staff on duty and all were pleasant.
Lovely hotel and staff. No complaints there. Dropped one star because I'm vegetarian and the meal I had in the restaurant was a rather sad affair, ie. the usual hotel vegetarian option-bland pasta with chunks of peppers and onions in a tomato sauce. The menu always tries hard to 'posh' it up with a description like, 'Tagliatelle with rustic vegetables au tomato ragout and drizzled with basil blaa blaa blaa .
Lovely hotel complex in the middle of the town, clean rooms, spa (as resident you can get better rate ), swimming pool, sauna, steam room, gym free use for residents, breakfast included. Very good value for the money. Superb rate for the parking if resident. Highly recommended.
Whites Hotel is a lovely Hotel all good, in very good location. We did find one of the reception staff no so good or accommodating but she didn't spoil our stay all other staff members very nice
Very enjoyable and relaxed top classr
Great location, clean hotel, very friendly staff in all areas. Found superior bedroom a bit small but was still lovely. Meal was very nice. And they added a nice touch with chocolates and strawberries in our room on a plate with Happy Anniversary written in chocolate - a pleasant surprise. Leisure center was lovely. Great value on Today FM Breaks. will be booking with ye again. Kind Regards, Ashling Dunne.
Had a lovely over night stay in Whites of Wexford would highly recommend Whites and Lidl for the super break!
A very large but nice hotel indeed, modern slick, stylish...really. The bedroom was lovely, and very comfortable, bright and clean, breakfast was excellent too. the only issue in the very hot weather was the window wouldn't open and the air conditioning wouldn't go below 19degrees, so I found it too warm at night. However when I complained they did their best to improve the situation. We were simply a little unluck with our room. BUT talk about value for money...I highly recommend it. The location is superb, and wexford is a lovely small town.
Clean good food.
Stayed in Whites Hotel for 3 nights b&b and 1 evening meal. Had a great few days and found the hotel and staff great in all departments. Will recommend to friends and family and look forward to staying again. Nothing to complain about at all. Thanks.
Hi, My wife & I stayed for 3 nights for a much needed break. We had a lovely relaxing time and felt really refreshed on departure and this was thanks to the great service that was provided by Whites of wexford. The Staff are excellent, food was fab, rooms were very comfortable & spacious and the location of the hotel was ideal, right in the middle of wexford. All in all we had a great break and will definately be back again this year, highly recommended.
Thank you Whites of Wexford for a fabulous stay. My family and I stayed for 1 night. The location is great. You step out of reception and into the heart of Wexford town. The hotel is lovely, reception, the restaurants and bar areas are all very open planned whilst cleverly very individual areas. Our room was very spacious and clean. The 'z' bed for our youngest was a little lumpy, but that would be the worst thing. Our bed was very comfortable. Room included all you could want...tea/coffee, an empty mini bar...space for my kids own drinks, iron, complimentary toiletries and enough towels for the whole family without having to request more. The food - our deal included dinner, we upgraded to the Ã¥ la carte menu for an extra â‚¬5.00 the food was fantastic...beautful! The staff, reception, chambermaids, restaurant and bar...everyone was very pleasant, most helpful when asked for assistance and in general made this a great stay. Thank you to you all. The leisure facility was clean and modern enough, just a shame the staff here are not quite of the same calibre as the rest of the hotel.
Fabulous hotel, very accomdating staff, will definitely stay again
We were disappointed with the room on arrival,told by a very nice Recptionest we could get an upgrade for 5 euro each ,Magic,if there was a cancellation,we were told they were fully booked out .half an hour later I got a call to say we were been upgraded to an Executive Suite,on the 5th Floor of the new building,.The room was magnificent,top class.We changed and got ready for Dinner,had a lovely bite to eat in the Library Bar,entertainment and drinks,great evening. The Staff could not have been nicer ,great manners from all levels of Management,the nicest food we have eaten ever,thoroughly recommend the Hotel t anyone
Great value for money. We had one night b&b and 1 dinner. Dinner very basic but Breakfast was fantastic. Kept us going for the day . If both of you are having breakfast together a handy tip would be for one of you to do the toast while the other orders breakfast (carvery style). When we were there queue for toaster . Put the do not disturb sign on your door at night . Housekeeping came knocking at 9am even though we didn't have to check out till midday. Try the fish pedicure , great value 10 euro for 15 mins.
very pleased with whites hotel. The staff were helpful and happy. Dinner excellent, breakfast with plenty of variety. We got a room change as we requested a quite room,would stay there again and recommend the hotel to my friends brian rating 5 star
Whites of Wexford is one of the nicest hotels that I have ever stayed in. From the location to the excellent food and service it is second to none. Enjoyed my stay tremendously. Star Rating 5.
Great family hotel! Very helpful and friendly staff. Clean and spacious rooms.
Good Value. Hotael clean tidy staff helpful and friendly
Great location. Disappointed with location of our rooms. Asked for sea view and got confirmation that we had but not so. Awful view even though I booked well in advance. I stayed in this hotel before and I think we must have been given rooms in a more modern part than this time. Long walk for my feeble 87yr old mother. Never offered a wheel chair. Corridor carpets dirty. Rooms were not adjacent as requested. One of the bedside lamps did not work. TV3 not working and had to ring reception to find that out. Toilet rolls not replenished on first day. Entertainment & food very good. Overall I felt the hotel had gone down since I stayed before and in general the hotel was a little jaded. Noticed courtyard could have been maintained ie flower tubs, hanging baskets etc. Location of SPA not really suitable for a mobile challenged person so there should be some way of making it easier to bring them there to make the experience more relaxing as this was the whole point of our break. She had to walk ages and climb steps. The alternative seemed to entail even more walking. Also in general signage very poor. It was like a mystery tour finding the various areas.
May 2014. No problems with service. Very helpful and friendly staff, especially those at reception. However, 'standard room' was a big disappointment. Very small to start off with and the bathroom really wasn't that of a 4 star hotel at all with many basic facilities missing (e.g. no shampoo or body wash in containers in shower, no bin). Also the shower didn't work properly and had no curtain or screen to prevent water from splashing out over rest of bathroom. Food (i.e. breakfast and afternoon tea) was average. Not many healthy options.
very comfortable, clean. excellent breakfast and evening meal. helpful reception staff.
May 2014 - We booked a very good deal the night before our arrival. We were pleasantly surprised by the quality of the hotel, bar, restaurant and leisure facilities (we have booked similar deals elsewhere which have not been as satisfactory). The hotel is modern and bright, the lobby, coffee dock and bar areas are spacious with plenty of seating enabling you to relax and watch the world go by. The hotel is also very centrally located, ideal for shopping. Very good value for money, would definitely return!
very comfortable, clean. excellent breakfast and evening meal. helpful reception staff.
Wonderful stay, staff were lovely and food was excellent. However I was disappointed with the twin room - the beds were way too narrow for adults. MR Kildare
had a wonderful stay , hotel fab, room great and food was excellent.We had stayed in whites 33 years ago on our honeymoon but my god what a change.I will tell all my friends about LIDL-BREAKS a great experience and easey website to book. teena casey
Great stay, fully recommend
Most disappointed that they had no gluten free bread for 2 of our 3 days there. Also disappointed there is a E3 over night parking charge that we were not informed of in advance.
Fantastic hotel. Loved it. Went with husband and 2 children. Kids club each morning. Boys loved it. Pool great. Had full body pregnancy massage. Amazing.
Food was lovely, staff were very friendly and attentive, however I have stayed in this hotel a number of times and I felt that standards had slipped. The bathroom floor in our room had not been hoovered and generally the four star rating is high considering other alternatives. However for the price the hotel and location cannot be beaten.
Great value, great breakfast, great experience, really enjoyed the music in the bar. Cant wait to go back.
Whites have an excellent staff that looked after us very well on out LIDL break. Breakfast was lovely, with a great selection . The rooms are very spacious and I cannot fault the building and its comfort.
Yet another pleasant stay in white's hotel , friendly atmosphere lovely staff and would recommend the hotel to family and friends
the hotel was absolutely fabulous!! we truly enjoyed our stay and would definitely stay there again. the hotel was kept busy which was a good sign as we loved the buzz. we also had a 3 coarse meal included in our stay which was beautiful. the breakfast was also beautiful with a wide range of choices to choose from. the staff in the hotel were so friendly that we even had a great laugh with them during our meal time. so helpful and would get you anything you requested. the leisure center was so relaxing even though the spa was fully booked i will be back to try it out again.
This was my second time to stay through lidl breaks in Whiltes Hotel Wexford and once again the hotel reached a high standard from reception on arrival to departure. Although we only stayed the one night we had a lovely time, all staff were extremely friendly, rooms are nice, food in restaurant was much improved since our last stay and couldnt be faulted this time. Music was excellent in bar however I thought Malibu at â‚¬5.80 a shot was extremely overpriced but it was a once off so it didnt matter. All in all I am looking forward to staying there again soon as the hotel has a central location for shopping and visiting lots of pubs.
I know there are nice rooms in the hotel but when you book a deal we got put in a room with bad view, poor bathroom and the air con couldn't heat the room.
Centrally located in town centre....spent 3 nights without moving car from car park underneath hotel. Availed of leisure facilities which was most relaxing. Food excellent in bar and main restaurant and reasonable for what was presented. Plenty of space to unwind and relax in hotel reception and coffee dock area. Rooms spacious with all facilities provided.
