I visited the Clayton Hotel in August with my wife, we had a 3 night stay courtesy of a Super Valu break.
Upon arriving to the hotel I was met with a huge smile by the superb receptionist Stephanie. After the usual chit chat and friendly conversation we continued with the check in, Stephanie realised that my wife and I were on a short break without our children and decided that she would upgrade us. Little did we know as we approached our room that we were being upgraded to the Presidential Suite, the best room in the hotel. This was just a fantastic gesture and it started our break perfectly. The room was amazing, with luxurious fixtures & fittings and it was HUGE!
We ate a meal in the restaurant that night and we had no faults at all with the quality. The service was a little questionable, however I put that down to some youthful exuberance amongst the very young waiting staff. Apart from breakfast, this was the only time we ate in the hotel. Breakfast was plentiful and set us up for the day.
On each of our 3 nights we caught the bus outside the hotel and went into Quay Street for the nightlife. The bus was certainly very handy and seemed to be fairly regular.
We had a few drinks in the bar over the course of our stay, staff were friendly and efficient.
Overall, this is a great hotel. We look forward to returning in the future with our 2 girls as we noticed a lot of families staying and thought they all seemed very content in the Clayton.
