“Fabulous value”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 January 2012

As a group of 4 girl friends we go out once a month to meet up. for a change we decided to go to a hotel and stay over. It actually worked out cheaper to stay and eat at the Clanard court hotel than if we had met at our local Chinese restaurant. They do great deals (ours was €65 per person for 4 course meal and bed and breakfast.
The food is excellent and we were treated superbly. They were very quiet at the hotel. We were given two double rooms with an adjoining door which was great for the four of us.
The breakfast was great and the next day we were given a voucher for 10% discount to spend at Kildare village.
A great recession buster night away. We will definitely be back.

A couple of weeks ago we had a party for my mother at the Clanard Court and the staff and management went way above and beyond the call of duty when it came to keeping us happy. I was very impressed with standard of food served and the level of service on offer. I would highly recommend this hotel for a party. Well Done Everyone

a group of us stayed in the hotel whilst attending a fund raising function last weekend. we were all very impressed with the staff, bedrooms and food. the staff are so helpful. bedrooms are large & well equipped. the food at the function was really lovely despite catering for over 200 people. breakfast the following morning was excellent with a great variety of choices. would strongly recommend the hotel & will be back.

Just come back from a family wedding and i can honestly say what a fab hotel this is. The hotel is bright and welcoming and the staff could not have been more helpful considering we arrived early after our morning flight. The food was amazing and I am really fussy, the chicken melted in the mouth and the wedding meal was superb the staff even came round to see if we wanted seconds! The beds were really comfortable and the rooms were very spacious - in my opinion its a lovely hotel, lovely staff and great value for money - would recommend.

I was very fortunate to be staying here whilst working in Athy. The welcome received from the reception staff was warm and friendly, and their efficiency is notable.

My room was large, well equipped and warm, and the bathroom was spacious, spotlessly clean and had a really powerful shower.

We ate dinner in the hotel, which more than lived up to the menu's promise, and breakfast was large with plenty of choice. At both meals the restaurant staff were friendly and efficient.

I was really comfortable at the Clanard Court, and would certainly recommend.

The hotel itself is nice and clean. Rooms were big and the shower was possibly the best shower I've seen in a hotel recently (pity it was over the bath though).
For a 4 star hotel there were a few things in the room which were not quite up to scratch -

The phone did not work, hence when ordering room service I had to go to reception anyway so kind of defeated the purpose.

Our key stopped working every time we left the room, had to have it reprogrammed a few times.

There was no bottled water in the room.
The bathroom towels were made for little people!

The food was lovely both in the bar and the restaurant.
Nice place for a short break but overall just a passable 4star.

Dear Guest,

Thank you for taking the time to review The Clanard Court. We are delighted that you found the Clanard a nice place for a break and enjoyed the food and service in Baileys Brasserie and Bar. I note from your comment that the phone did not work in your room, unfortunately we were not aware of this until we recieved your post and we have since replaced the handset. I understand completely the frustration regarding your key card not functioning properly. Unfortunately the magnetic strip on the side of the key cards we were using appeared to be extremely sensitive and not always holding the code for the duration of time it should. We have been working with our suppliers to rectify this problem, we also find that if the card is stored beside a mobile phone for any duration of time it tends to wipe the signal. It is not our policy to provide bottled water in bedrooms however we are delighted to serve chilled water to rooms on request. Our standard housekeeping policy is to provide a selection of Bath Sheets and Hand Towels in each guest room, on the very rare occassion when our linen suppliers have difficulty sending us adequeate stock of bath sheets they supplement our order with bath towels. I can only assume that your room was stocked with bath towels instead of our usual supply of bath sheets. Bath towels are indeed smaller in size and not suitable for hotel use.

Once again, I thank you for your comments and feedback which have been extremely helpful to us in ensuring that we maintain the very high standards we have set at The Clanard Court Hotel.

Kind Regards

Myself and my opther half stayed here for 1 night (Saturday) after a day at Curragh Race Course. We checked in early and our room was not yet reat (Our fault). The kind girl at reception took in our bags and our room was ready on our return. The room was spotless and the bed was very very comfortable. We had bar food in the evening which was not great. The 'Fish Dish of the Day' was a frozen piece of Donegal Catch. My beef was a bit on the tough side and the mash was sent back as it was cold. Having said all that the staff were lovely and nothing was a problem... maybe they need to consider a new chef??

I would suggest finding a restaurant in the town of Athy, as the standard was really not great.

Overall I would stay again and the price was excellent and the room and staff were lovely.
