One of the best family stays! Highly recommend. I got the extra of a tent in the room for my 4 year old son and he loved it. Swimming pool is big and warm. The kids play area downstairs is perfect for young children and there’s a pool table and hockey table for the teens… crazy golf & a fairy finding trial is also good fun. breakfast was outstanding. Staff all super friendly… a must visit while here is the Glencar Alpaca’s which can be booked through the hotel.

a lovey hotel, very impressive as you drive in! Warm friendly welcome, we arrived early but were accommodated no bother. We were in a ground floor family room, clean and very quiet which was great when travelling with kids. Lovely comfy beds, we all had a great sleep. We made great use of the pool facilites (small kids pool and lovely 'grown up' pool) jaccuzzi etc, the crazy golf, and the fairy trail. All the staff we came in contact with were so friendly and polite and made a big fuss of my little boy who lost his first tooth during our stay (even when he showed them his gappy mouth for the 10th time!) and a fuss of me who was trying to slide my birthday under the radar but did appreciate the gooey treats that were waiting in the room for me! Breakfast was delicious and varied and unlimited - trust me, my husband pushed THAT to its limits!! How my children were treated stood out for me... they were made to feel like very important guests and the staff were very patient and kind with them. all in all a lovely mellow stay, great spot for the kids and grown ups alike. I would return and I would recommend it. A central spot for travelling about, Rosses Point was lovely there are lots of sightseeing places to go.

My family spent some time in this beautiful hotel recently. Our suite was lovely. Spotlessly clean. Warm and comfortable beds. The staff were lovely and friendly and went out of their way to make our stay perfect. The food was delicious and we were so well looked after, special mention to the staff member with a beard. Very courteous and respectful and so welcoming. We highly recommend this beautiful hotel. The grounds were so well maintained.

I stayed here June Bank Holiday Sunday night with my 3 sons, my mother in law, my niece and my sister in law. My sons were so excited when they seen the exterior and it is really beautiful. My check in went fine at 4.30 but my mother in laws room wasn't ready, we travelled from Meath, we were tired you know yourself after travelling, she's 80 also. When she did finally get her room you couldnt have put her further from reception if you tried, a good 5 minute walk. I thought to myself it could do with a good revamp, reception area is nice but the rooms are old wood and it's faded/scrapped so I'd already decided I'd probably not stay again, there was a bright pink stain on the cream coloured carpet in our room. To cut a long story short... someone urinated in one of the single beds in our room. When we arrived my 9 year old said uggh the bed feels wet and I thought to myself it was probably just cold, we were only in the room frazzled trying to get to the pool I didn't pay much attention to him, but that night my 15 year old got in and in fact the bed was wet, I stripped the bed and decided one one was sleeping innot I took the 9 year old in my double the 15 Yr old in his single and had to ship my other son off to my mother in laws as I'd no where for him to keep being down a bed. It was 11pm reception didn't answer so we just went to sleep and a Manager came the ext day, apologised and supplied sweets for the boys. My sons horrified he's 15 and horrified even at that age that this could happen in a hotel. I did get a call from the General Manager and an apology abd full refund, we altered offered a free stay but decided not to return again. Apart from the above I have no words 👎

Just want to say thank you for such a warm welcome and great service from all at Clayton. We were a large group (Damien Dempsey & band) playing the Wild Roots festival and everyone appreciated the care and help with everything. Have to mention the wonderful Shiela (Sile?) who went the extra mile and was such a positive vibe. 🙏

This is a lovely hotel and 2nd floor accessible bedrooms have enough space and a gap under the bed for a wheelchair/ hoist user. Bathroom is big and the door opens outward, did not try the shower. Good food and location and pleasant staff.

Where do I begin? Giving two stars is generous, not because the hotel lacks comfort, but rather the front of house staff are appalling. That's quite a statement isn't it. There's also a young bar man who took great pleasure in telling me the hotel does not except Sterling. In fairness to the hotel, they don't except any foreign currency. However, the smugness with which this bar man declined the Sterling notes resting on the bar in front of him. Told me, all I needed to know about the level of training this young man has yet to receive. There was an observable low-level of hospitality etiquette rife during our stay. Let's break here, while I inject some positivity into this review. The hotel is impressive in its accommodation for children. It has a games room, with pool table, air hockey table (out of order), a dedicated paly room for younger children, mini-golf (outside), and a little play house built under the stairwell in the leisure area. The health & fitness staff could not have been more congenial, friendly and warm. My son wanted some change, I told him to go to the front desk, it was closer, he didn't want to. He said he didn't like how the front desk staff 'felt'. Lets go back to check in. You never have a second chance, at a first impression. The front desk area lacks warmth. I gave my name, the staff member said "I don't have a booking, would you have used another name". I'd just driven 3 hours, I was tired, of all the different ways a front desk employee could speak to a guest. Do you think the Hilton tells theirs guests straight off, we don't have your booking? I can attest, they do not. To be clear, I've worked for the Hyatt Corporation in America, and I've worked on the front desk. Here's some other ways it could have went, "Could I check I have the spelling of your surname correct?" "Would you have a booking reference that I could cross check with our system please?" and so on. Next, my card did not work in the hotel's card machine, I know, can you imagine my stress building. The Clayton front desk team now had the opportunity to show compassion, to reassure me that this situation could be ironed out. I had to ask if I could be checked in with a deposit of €200, I would go directly to a cash machine and get the remainder. Uncaring, lacking empathy, with looks of semi-distain, was what I received. Once the front desk supervisor gave the 'okay' for me to be given a room. I again asked where I find a cash machine, I was told a garage. Do you think I was given any directions? No I wasn't. They were too busy trying to get me to book breakfast, or dinner. Not knowing where to go I drove around, found a garage, no cash machine. Not sure how I remained calm. I came across an AIB cash machine, out of order, it then began to rain. I could have cried at this point. Further down the street, the Bank of Ireland, life saver that it is, was working. I withdrew the money for the hotel room. Joseph, seemed to have a personality. His chef can't cook rice though, and you get half a poppadum, with an unimpressive Indian vegetable curry. Why are you giving guests HALF a poppadum? Who is eating the other half, or are you just throwing it away! There are few positives to the staff encounters I had. I was cold, and called the front desk to ask for a blanket. When someone from housekeeping came to my door, she brought a duvet, and it's cover, she then asked if I wanted her to put it on. Don't even get me started on the toilet seat, dear god, wonky! You know when you sit down, and it shifts to the side, yep, each and every time I went to the toilet. Do you think I got the opportunity to tell anyone when I checked out, nope, not a chance, the queue was so long at reception. I took one look at another disgruntled female guest and thought forget this. There weren't enough staff on to check people out, or deal with guest's queries. The Clayton hotel looks good from the outside, but it lacks substance. Very disappointing. I will never use this hotel company again.

My girlfriends and I stayed in the Clayton hotel over the Easter break. The hotel was very clean, spacious (perfect for getting ready for a night out on the town) and comfortable. The staff were very friendly and one member of staff went above and beyond to help 3 girls in need of a bite to eat after partying in town to the small hours. At 3am, Joseph kindly offered to prepare for us ham and cheese sandwiches. They were top class and put a smile on our faces! Kindness definitely goes a long way. Thank you Joseph! You are a living legend! Niamh, Lauren & Tracey
