April 2017 I spent two nights at The Clayton, Ballsbridge. The room was very spacious and the beds very comfortable. Staff were very helpful and efficient. The hotel is quite big, with plenty of areas to sit and chill; the bar food is good and served til late. Breakfast also good.Good location. Imelda C

Excellent Hotel, Location, Staff and Breakfast were all very good. would highly recommend as it is very close to town with good transport links

Stayed for 2 nights and found it one of the worst experiences for a Dublin hotel. Stayed here many times when under Bewley's brand and never had any problems. Waited over 40 mins to get a drink in the bar on the first night and had to send food back as covered with vinegar when it arrived. Was told this is the way they come but not noted on menu. (Chicken wings) Second morning at breakfast, having been shown to our table, went to self service area to return and find the table had been given to another guest. Had cereal and juice and went to get Irish breakfast at self service area once again to return and find the table cleared and reset for another party. All in all found the service poor and more geared towards volume rather than guest experience.

A fabulous hotel in a wonderful setting. The staff were very professional, courteous, friendly and very helpful. The rooms were spacious, very comfortable with tea and coffee facilities. The bathroom was fresh, clean with nice toiletries. The breakfast was plentiful with hot and cold choices and very tasty.

by Wendy on Nov 7 2016 10:59

The hotel was spotlessly clean, there was plenty for breakfast. Brilliant value for what we paid. Parts need a bit of an update but overall a very nice hotel. Staff on reception were very pleasant and efficient.

by seamus on Nov 7 2016 10:59

This is one of the best hotels in Dublin. Located in Ballsbridge, a 2 minute walk from the DART station or a short taxi ride to anywhere in the city centre, it is my favourite hotel location. The rooms were recently upgraded and the food is excellent. Would recommend!

by Karen on Oct 25 2016 13:07

Found hotel room v cold n terrible smell when we arrived bar staff under pressure n v rude food took over 40 mins n when it arrived it was cold .we were attending a show n when we returned to bar later that night bar staff asked if my husband was capable of having another drink which he took huge offence when he'd only had 4 pints previously while bar staff were serving the afters of a wedding crowd who were very drunk and loud downing shots !! Car park is an absolute joke too!

by maurice mc carthy on Oct 10 2016 19:28

great value stay for one night. however , at check in being asked to pay in advance in full for your stay is not good practice especially when you are informed that if you dont pay they cant issue the keycard

by Peter on Aug 22 2016 17:00

I had a very enjoyable stay at the Clayton in Ballsbridge. The service was excellent as was the room and the breakfast. Will come back again.

by Norma on Apr 5 2016 12:51

Great location especially for the RDS or the Aviva stadium. Lovely rooms. Busy while we were there for our 2 days but no issue getting a table for breakfast or anything. Would definitely stay there again

by jimmy on Apr 2 2016 22:04

This was good enjoyed the hotel, room clean and spacious. Breakfast chef, well not so good on hot food, but everything else well laid on and lots of. Hot breakfast rasher burnt to a cinder and the rest cold. Bar food well try it yourself.

Very good value, lovely building in great location. Staff helpful to very helpful.

by Nuala Delaney Whelan on Jan 15 2016 13:36

Very nice room, great breakfast, lovey staff, good bar food in very friendly atmosphere. Only complaint was €12 for overnight parking is very steep.

by Siobhan on Dec 30 2015 11:13

We atayed here on 27th Dec. The hotel room was very nice we were traveling with 2 small children and it suited our needs. We ate in the hotel bar and service was very poor Food was just ok. This was maybe due to the hotel being very busy. You also have to pay €12 for overnight parking which I thought was a bit steep.. Definitely not a 4star hotel.

by Tommy Brennan on Dec 9 2015 14:53

Very good value. Lovely room comfortable and clean got an early check no problem great breakfast would stay again.

by Dean on Nov 16 2015 10:59

Really beautiful hotel. The room was lovely and exactky what you wanted not to big just the right size. The staff were extremely helpful in anything we did and the price of the room for bnb for 2 of us was excellent especially in the middle of ballsbridge. The breakfast was brilliant the selection was unbelievable catering for all. Really enjoyed our stay and if I'm looking to stay in dublin again the clayton would definitely be high on my list of hotels to stay in.

by E on Jul 19 2015 11:05

Nice hotel,great location for Ballsbridge and Rds.Comfy beds and bedlinen.Not the most inspired breakfast but served hot and plentiful.Staff impersonal but exactly what you expect for a large hotel.Car park 12 hour for 24hrs.

by Kevin Devitte on Jul 15 2015 10:55

Everything was nice, the staff, the food and the location. The only negative was the lack of electrical outlets next to the bed, for those using a CPAP machine. The hotel on the day was very busy but the staff kept up with all the demands put on them. To be honest the breakfast was one of the finest breakfast I ever had at a hotel. Great taste and plenty of choice. I will stay here again.

by val p glynn on Jul 11 2015 10:51

A bit of a puzzle getting from underground car park to reception and then having to change lifts again to get to room. Reception was fast and efficient, rooms were ok, could have been water to drink in the room, otherwise comfortable, warm and breakfast was acceptable. The one nasty element of our stay was the imposition of a €12 charge for our car on top of the bill at the end. Very nasty.

by Nalcona on Jun 10 2015 14:04

We had beautiful stay in Hotel Sunday night, got upgrade free to super airy comfortable room. Breakfast excellent & staff very pleasant all round Only small negative (other than being charged twice in error) was that Iron, Nespresso maker & ironing board in executive level were damaged but working perfectly
