Lovely hotel, very friendly staff. Room was very spacious and clean. Really comfortable beds! Pool was great. A brilliant hotel for a short break.


Ginnie scored 4 / 5 on 23/09/2016

I found this hotel to be very bright and spacious and welcoming. Staff were very nice and efficient. Ideal place to stay on a visit to Galway and surrounding areas, a bus stop outside hotel very convenient and takes you into the city in approx. 15 mins. 2.10 Euro single trip or taxi ride costs approx. 15 Euro. Would recommend this hotel.

My partner and I stayed at the Clayton recently through Lidl Breaks and I have to say I throughly enjoyed it. Everything was super and the value of booking through Lidl was an added bonus. The hotel itself is very nice and the selection for breakfast was fantastic. I definetly will be returning to the Clayton Galway.

Nicki_g scored 4 / 5 on 04/03/2015

Just returned from a 3 night break with this hotel. I have to say it was excellent value for money. We stayed in a family room with two small children and it was huge! Really nice and clean too. The staff in the hotel were all very friendly and accommodating. We had food in the bar a few times and it was really tasty. If i was going to be critical at all i would say that our room was very cold when we got there, however there was a heater in the room and it heated up quickly once that was on. I would definitely recommend this hotel to other families.

Fabulous hotel would stay there again. we stayed late October (bank holiday wkend), and there was a great buzz around the hotel, in the bar / restaurant etc. and thats something you can never guarantee no matter how much you pay! everything was clean , beds were comfy. Nice food and wine. 10 minute drive to the city centre. would definitely recommend.


Caroline scored 5 / 5 on 14/08/2014

This is one of the nicest hotels I have stayed thus far. The staff are friendly and warm and always on hand to every request. The room we stayed in was a family room and was huge with two double beds , dressing area and lovey bathroom. We had a balcony also, which we didn't go out onto as there were some loose wooden boards and a bit dangerous with a four year old (was reported to staff on checkout)On booking our room I had requested a fridge for our daughter for her milk and medicine and upon arrival wasn't there. After two phones calls and about 2 hours wait it finally arrived and made our stay more relaxing as not worrying about how to keep milk cold!!!! The pool was amazing and on both days that we used it it was complete empty (we went about 2pm on both days) and we had the pool to ourselves!!!!! You get towels down in the pool area and armbands, floats it was amazing, you have to wear swim hats so buy them before you go. There is no shallow or deep end the pool is the same dept the length of the pool so bear that in mind with little ones. Breakfast was lovely. Our daughter is a fussy eater and staff were very attentive to her needs, and they even remembered for the next morning what she liked and brought it without being asked which was wonderful. I was celebrating my 40th birthday over our stay and was a little surprised that a little gift or card was not present in our room which is very usual for most hotels that I've stayed in and I've stayed in a lot!!! (my husband did mention this on booking). This personal touch was lacking and kind of let the Clayton down in my opinion. But that was the only thing, this hotel is big and grand with beautiful fixtures and fittings and will be staying here again.

Fantastic hotel,everything and all the staff were great,best value we have come across for this quality of hotel,will definately return.Great bus service to and from Galway city.

Just back from a stay at the clayton hotel with my husband and five children. We had joining rooms and they were clean and plenty of room. From the moment we arrived the staff were helpful and friendly especially with the five kids. The pool was clean and plenty of clean towels available. Food was great and plenty of variety for all the different age groups. There was a kids club but we did not use it as we were busy doing other activities in Salthill which is only 10 mins drive. We stayed as a couple in may without the kids and enjoyed it so we decided to stay there again when we were in Galway in July with the kids and they really liked it.


Kathleen scored 5 / 5 on 06/07/2014

We have just returned from a 3 night family break in the Clayton and can say we really enjoyed our stay. We checked in with no problems and were given a room on 2nd floor on the wing where swimming pool was as it was great for kids.Our family room was fantastic and was very spacious and spotlessly clean.Beautifull white fluffy towels in a very large bathroom .It was also very quiet and peacefull at night and we slept sound .We had dinner on our 1st night in the bar very reasonable price and an excellent offer for kids menu of dinner dessert and a drink for€8.95 which was great kids loved their meal.Some really excellent dishes on the menu We were served by Daniel and have to say a very polite and friendly young man who engaged in conversation with 2 boys about GAA football and telling them he was from Kerry the home of the Gooch (kerry footballer) really impresssed them.he had no problems gettin them extra jugs of drinks and chatting away to them and did so with all the customers in the bar .Breakfast is also top class with everything you could want on display and if you have any request for poached boiled fried eggs no problem getting them from kitchen.Kids loved the pool and a realy nice young man doin lifegaurd got them some floats and balls to play with and here was also spotlessly clean.we spent our days touring around galway and just outside the main door is a bus 403 runs every 30 min that brings you in to Eyre Square middle of the city €6.20 for a family saves havin to drive in and parking charges The hotel is also close to shopping centre and cinema and there is a dunnes stores, chemis,t and some more shops across road.On our last night we had dinner in the restaurant and again top class food and service Have to thank the maid who was cleaning our room as you can imagine with 2 kids lots of stuff everywhere and when we returned every day she had the room tidy its the little things that gives us mammys a rest that count.We highly recommend this hotel for a break away for all not just familys.As we were checking out on Friday they were gettin ready for a wedding and it looked just amazing .The management of this hotel should be very proud of its staff who all do amazing work and do what the Irish are supposeto do and extend a Cead Mile Failte but unfortunately is not always the case in some hotels .Thanks to all at The Clayton for a most enjoyable& relaxing few days in beautifull Galway

Josephine scored 1 / 5 on 02/06/2014

Donal, the receptionist was very helpful, offering to bring our bags to the room on arrival. He agreed to my request to have lunch/es to the value of the 4-course evening meal included in package as we prefer not to eat late. The first day we had two half portions of lunch, valued €7.45 each, and were told we could swap the voucher for that. I was not happy so the waiter called Nora, a manageress, who stated that the deal was "1 evening meal" and that Donal was only there three weeks, in other words he had no right to tell us what he did. When I argued the point, she begrudgingly said we could have one more lunch on the voucher. While the room was big and bright, the huge window did not open and while there was air conditioner, which was not easy to use, my mother who is elderly does not like cold air blowing on her. We asked for over-sheets and blanket as there was only duvet on the beds and we promptly got them. However when the beds were made up the sheets and blanket were taken away so we had to ask again. We also had to request toilet rolls. Madelina, who brought the sheets and blanket, was most helpful in making up beds offering to get anything else we wanted. The hotel was full with bus tours, but the restaurant could not cater for the crowd at breakfast. After asking, and getting, 3 times boiling water and tea it still was not hot, nor was the porridge, which on the first morning after waiting for pot to be refilled, was liquid with a burnt taste. The service in bar was very inefficient, having to ask for salt, cups, milk etc. Overall it was a very disappointing experience.

Just back from this hotel, very nice clean hotel, lovely staff.. We had an interconnecting room which was great as my partners teenage son came with us.. We also had our 8 year old daughter with us... I must say I was very disappointed in d leisure centre there was no kids pool for her and no kids allowed in the bar after 9 pm... Apart from the kids club which ran from 6.30 to 8.45 there wasn't much for her to do... We ate in the restaurant on one night and I must say food was lovely as was breakfast with a great choice of food.. All in all I don't think I would return as a family


Reviewer55923105 scored 5 / 5 on 21/04/2014

I don't have a bad word to say about the Clayton. It was my first time staying there and I will def be returning. I stayed as part of the B&B + dinner deal - the rooms were fab, really clean & comfy. The dinner was lovely, had nice choices. Breakfast was gorgeous, I think it was the best breakfast spread I've ever seen. Staff from reception to bar to restaurant were great, I couldn't fault their friendliness & efficient service. It is a little outside the city but a taxi isn't too bad if you are sharing, it was €15.

We stayed at the Clayton Hotel Galway at the weekend and i have to say from start to finish we could not find any fault with this hotel. The welcome we got from the receptionist was lovely and very pleasant. The rooms were big and everything you need was there. the bed i have to say were one of the most comfortable i have ever stayed in. we had dinner in the restaurant and were so helpful esp the gentleman that was welcoming us. he was there for the two morning for breakfast and it was like he knew us and couldnt be nicer. all in all, it was a great weekend and would highly recommend it to anyone.

The room was lovely - warm, clean, modern. The evening meal was ok, nothing special. Breakfast choice was good and they did have Gluten free bread which was a plus. I think they could improve on the taste of the evening menu though. However it was all very reasonable. Location was good too.

Nice hotel. Bar/bistro staff were friendly, attentive and helpful. Reception staff slightly less so (perhaps just very busy) but not really a problem. Breakfast was good. Bottom line was we got a dinner, bed and breakfast deal for very good value through Lidl Breaks so we were happy customers. One word of caution. Taxis seem to be very expensive in Galway. Not the hotel's fault but it cost us €14 to go into Galway and about the same to get back to the hotel.
