Clayton Hotel Galway

4.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Always nice to return to the Clayton Hotel in Galway. Staff recognizes repeat customers well.

A nice hotel directly on a bus route to Eyre Square-so convenient! However, the folks waiting for the bus later in the evening sounded a little noisy, even though the window was shut.

We booked it the same day on line and checked in late. I was impressed by the nice, clean, comfortable room with a view. Went to the bistro downstairs for something to eat before going to bed. The food was good and there was live music and a lot of people enjoying themselves. So, we stayed for the dancing. Overall, we had a good time for a very reasonable price.

Far from city centre. Odd, old red carpet and beds Waaaay too hard. Wouldn't stay here again though staff were very friendly and the pool and sauna were fabulous.

Great location, short cab ride to Quay St. Hotel staff were friendly and professional. Check-in and out was quick and easy. Free, on-site parking in the outdoor or underground lots made travel in and out of the hotel very easy. The room was spacious with a clean, updated bathroom. Breakfast buffet was delicious. On-site pub was a great spot to watch the Guinness finals!

Half of the rooms are off of a MAJOR expressway. Very loud even at night. The hotel itself is quite modern and upscale. It would have been perfect if we had an interior room

I have requested full refund. Don't send people to this hotel the bedroom dark and dingy hole in comforter checked for bed bugs and found mattress covered in urine the whole mattress was tea brown stained horrific I later found this hotel is in receivership this is a no star hotel clientele families getting drunk not my idea of a relaxing time . Demanded my refund at clay ton manager laughed and said you paid already disgraceful take this off your list

This hotel is excellent... BUT it is no where near the main Galway area.... so if you're not renting a car and are trying to get around on foot... consider yourself out of luck. On the plus side, the room are spacious and quiet and the staff is friendly. (Plus during our stay we got to see the President of Ireland having Tea in the cafe!)

Locating hotel was extremely problematic in that getting to it in a rental care took several tries.

The hotel was great for the price. I asked for a quiet room and received one even thought it was a Holiday.

Very courteous staff. Bus in front of hotel would take you easily into the city center if you didn't have a car. Was nice to have the shopping center and grocery store across the street. We liked having the free wifi in the common areas but wish we could have had it in the room as well. We would stay again if back in Galway.

Excellent hotel, very cheap for the quality. Some oddly shaped rooms, but very comfortable for a non-pretentious couple. May be a bit far from center, but there's a bus right outside for 1.60 one way.

The hotel itself was very nice. We had a car, and they had free parking and free internet, so that was great. The hard part was the distance from the city center. There was no good way to get there. We tried driving, but parking was a bit difficult to find, and the meters have to be paid every three hours. There was a bus, but as it was raining the days we were there, we didn't want to take the bus b/c we weren't sure how long we'd have to wait in the rain.

This hotel is absolutely BEAUTIFUL! The rooms are large, the beds are amazingly soft, the internet is great. I was truely shocked at how nice this hotel is. And FREE PARKING!
