Stayed at the Clayton Hotel for 2 nights and it was very enjoyable. The hotel lounge area is very comfortable and relaxing. The staff are very friendly and helpfuI. The Clayton is in a lovely area and the bus stop into the city centre is outside the hotel.

I stayed here recently while taking part in the BT Young Scientist in the RDS. The hotel was in a superb location for this, less than a five minute walk from the arena. It is not too far from the city centre either with a taxi costing just €9.50. The staff were really fabulous. Being a 4 star hotel it...

Hotel is nicely decorated. Rooms are clean, could probably do with an update. Staff are very nice and friendly. We had dinner in the restaurant but it was not nice. Plates were cold & food was cold. I would stay in the hotel again but I would not eat in the restaurant.

Stayed here in August 2016 with family, friends & some out of town guests, while we had our event here.

My wife and I stayed for one night on Jan 9th 2017. Bedroom was very small and outdated. Shower enclosure was so small if you dropped anything you could not bend down to pick it up. The next morning we could only find one set of towels which we had to share. When I asked at checkout I was told...

Yesterday 4 of us visited this hotel , at lunch time , for soup and sandwiches.The food was good, but the friendly, welcoming, and professional service offered by Maria, in the casual section of the restaurant was exceptional.Without doubt this quality of service will ensure we return.
