Having received 3 vouchers as a Christmas present my mother in law booked into the Spa for reflexology, a deluxe manicure and a deluxe pedicure (as per her vouchers). She expected to spend the best part of the day being pampered. The reflexology was as expected but unremarkable. However she was then told she wasn't booked in for the deluxe treatments and they didn't have time to do them. The staff member merely painted her nails (hands and toes) with cheap varnish that chipped off a couple of days later and gave her 45 euros taking her vouchers away!! This was not acceptable and does not amount to a refund of the cost!!! This was meant to be a lovely day for her, a gift from the family. The hotel is on her doorstep and if this Spa had treated her properly she would no doubt be visiting regularly future we will go elsewhere. This is no way to run a business of this kind. She is feeling very disappointed and as purchasers of the gift vouchers we feel cheated.

A very well located hotel within easy walk of the main shopping area and also the train station. The higher floor rooms have great views across the bridge. The staff were very welcoming and friendly. The Library Bar is a great place to chill out. The range of food offered at breakfast was excellent. We dined in the restaurant the first night but really would recommend the Library Bar for food. The food in the restaurant was nice but there is a larger selection in the bar. The courtyard is a great sun trap and is again a lovely place to have a beer. The room was super and was above our expectation. It was very clean and there is a turn down service too. Overall it was a great weekend and I would love to return soon.

We got a last minute deal here and it has to be one of the best hotels we have ever stayed in. The room was great, the food was fantastic the bed was superb and the staff were really obliging and couldn't do enough for you. We'll definitely be back.

I stayed here for one night on business last week. It is very close to the town centre. It is a modern hotel and perhaps a little soulless for that reason but it had everything the traveller needs. Nice bar with very attentive staff, free wifi with good speed, free parking and good sleep quality.

We stayed in this for one night but it was fab. Great location in the centre of the town. Really buzzy hotel, super leisure centre and spa and I have no problem recommending it highly. The staff were really friendly, the rooms really good all is exactly as it should be.

I have stayed here several times over the years and I would highly recommend this hotel. This time we stayed on Valentine's Day and we had dinner and spa treatments included in our package. These were booked upon check in without any hassle. Location: prefect, right in the heart of Wexford. Several clubs, bars and shops within walking distance. Food: both the dinner and breakfast were absolutely fantastic and we couldn't recommend the food highly enough. Spa: the tranquility spa was included in our package along with a couples massage. The spa was very relaxing and I would recommend going to the spa if possible. Overall this hotel is perfect for a romantic getaway.

We stayed in Clayton Whites while attending our friends wedding which was taking place close by. I emailed ahead to request an early check-in & received a prompt and optimist response from the manager, Mr Joe O'Brien. When we arrived at the hotel, parking was easily available in their underground car park which had plenty of spaces. The welcome at reception was warm and friendly and our requested early check-in was available, which was great. Our room (R515), was a suite on the top floor and was most impressive. It had a hall, a dining and sitting room area equipped with a fridge, tea/coffee making facilities, a dining table and chairs, a three, two, one set of couches, a safe, and a number of large windows offering a beautiful view of Wexford bay. The bathroom had a huge shower, modern sink and deep set bath with back support - which was pure heaven! We had a great nights sleep in the large bedroom with king size bed that was so comfortable. The next morning we went for breakfast in the restaurant which also exceeded our expectations. There was a wide range of good quality food and beverages available. This included, hot porridge & toppings, cereals, fresh fruit & pastries and a hot counter offering all of the 'Full Irish' favourites in addition to their unique crispy breakfast potatoes, which were yum! The only improvement I would make is in relation to the fried eggs, which were a little under cooked for my taste, but in saying that others may like them prepared that way. Service: The waitress, Betty, who took our tea & coffee order was really friendly and sincerely warm. She made us feel very looked after and is a real credit to the hotel. After breakfast, we relaxed for a short time back in our suite before it was time to check out & start our journey home to Dublin. If we had had more time, we would have enjoyed a swim and the other facilities on offer in the hotel, but an appointment meant we had to leave, so we bid farewell to Clayton Whites (for now) and got on the road. Overall, we really enjoyed our stay in in this hotel and based on our experience we would definitely return & recommend it to others. The suite is certainly worth paying the extra for, if you are in a position to do so. Thanks to Joe O'Brien, Betty and rest of the staff for their great hospitality and making our stay so enjoyable!

The tranquility spa in this hotel is just amazing and they always have great deals on offer. Today I got a body scrub, a facial and a back, neck and shoulder massage for €59 plus 1 hour in the thermal suite which is probably one of the best thermal suites around. My therapist Chloe was brilliant, all the treatments were great and she gave me loads of useful tips about my skin ect. I cant wait to book in and relax again in the near future.

great location and lovely bedrooms but it was very busy and crowded at times. Too much going on. There was a business event, a wedding, at least one communion, a stag party and 2 or 3 hens party's the weekend we stayed. The dining room was very cold and noisy and the food was very disappointing. I might stay here again for the room and location but I definitely would not eat here.

This was our second time staying in whites and I have to say being a chef I can clearly see there is very little standards in the kitchen and unfortunately the food we were served was so below par it was ridiculous the first night we got a menu which was average at best 1* then the second night after paying upfront for 2 dinners we went to the restaurant hoping for an improvement and what we got was a let down we were seated between and large group of special needs students, a 40 birthday and a hens party the noise was so loud I couldn't really hear my wife but not wanting to make a fuss we said nothing until we seen the same pethetic menu from the night before (really are your chefs not able to have different menus daily or at least at weekends) i then asked could we eat in the bar the lovely lady at the desk said of course and gave us 2 x 20 euro vouchers since we already paid in advance. We sat in the bar and had a very polite waitress who took our order I got chicken wings (6 yes 6) in a bowl which were half cooked so I was instantly turned off my dinner which was supposed to be chicken curry I cancelled this since the chef can't cook chicken wings I wasn't chancing a curry. My wife had chowder the portion was fine and lasagne which was so tough you could use it as a spare sole for your shoe, she couldn't eat it, We have eaten in 100s of hotels and restaurants over the years and I am a sad to say this experience was the worst. We came here a couple of years ago and it was better then. The room we got was fine bar the cracked sink and holey towels the bed was comfy. But we were woken at 4 in the morning to a few of drunk girls messing outside the door. I understand that hotels are busy with functions, weddings, communions etc but please try and remember the other guests that are staying in your hotel. Let me just say your staff in the reception the bar and the cleaners treated us very well they have great manor about them and if we ever come back it will only be because of the staff.
