“Great hotel”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 November 2012

Room not ready on arrival but plenty of comfy sofas in lobby to wait (and the bar). Had a great deal for dinner B and B. Food was delicious and staff were very attentive. Bed very comfy, no glasses for drinks in the room but bar staff gave these willingly, power shower excellent, warm spotless. Staff were very accommodating when we asked re family rooms and gave us a key to see around.
Hotel gives you a VIP (10% discount) card for the Kildare shopping village which is great. Didn't use spa or swim centre. A little bit out on it's own (garage and shop within easy walk). Shopping village approx 15 mins drive away and staff happily gave directions. Great stay would recommend!

Room Tip: Good place for relaxing night and great shopping!

Had lunch yesterday it was just ok. Food was not over hot . Staff look like the did not want to be their nowadays you think any one with a job be grateful. On our way out of hotel people sitting at a table in entrance hall if was full of empty glasses not a good look as you came in the door it dos not a lot to clean a table. Overall will not call it needs a good staff meeting..

Dear Bernie m

Thank you for taking the time to post your review of the Clanard Court Hotel.

I am disappointed to read that your experience was not what you expected. We have a very dedicated team of Food & Beverage staff many of whom have worked here for many years and pride themselves on delivering superior customer service.

We do facilitate regular staff training with our team, and at present we have a few new staff members that are going through the orientation process, but may not appear as confident and outgoing as our longer term members.

We hope to welcome you back to the Hotel soon so you can experience the true service and great food that we are renowned for.

Regards

There was a party of four of us stayed in the clanard court for two nights, On the way to the hotel we got a bit lost, so we rang the hotel and the girl on desk was very helpfull and give us perfect directions right to the front door, when we got there the staff was very welcoming, we ate in the bar, and had a few drinks, only fault was it was a bit on the cold side, on saturday night we ate again and had drinks in the bar, there was a wedding in the hotel to, this did not affect the staff on dealing with us, i highly recommend this hotel, if its peace and quite you after with nice staff, you will definatly enjoy it.

I am delighted to hear that you enjoyed your stay and found our staff friendly and hospitable.

My apologies that you found the bar cold - we have recognised this problem since the weather has started to get a little colder. This week, our heating in the Bar & Brasserie is getting upgraded, so hopefully when you are back with us you can enjoy your dinner in a warm and cosy environment.

Unique, and beyond impressive, staff are among the most freindly attentive and helpful I have ever come across. Always a smile waiting at reception, the restaurant or in any part of the hotel. All staff well equipped with local knowledge. I will for sure be returning again soon..

My Wife and I spent 2 nights in this hotel and also eat in the bar for the two nights in question. There is a brasserie there but it was very quiet so we ate in the bar instead and the food was enjoyable.

The Hotel itself is a bit outside Athy so it would be advisable to stay sober and drive around before you return to the hotel. The following are the issues that we found with the hotel.

Positives:
1) Rooms were clean and modern.
2) Food in the Bar was very enjoyable and the rpices were reasonable. Tip: try the Bar Plate enough for 3 or 4 people for 12.50
3) As a smoker the smoking room at the back of the hotel is very much appreciated as the weather was not suitable for smoking outside.
4) Staff were very helpful and friendly. Arranged a golf club tee time with Athy Golf club and because of the weather arranged cancellation also.

Negatives:
1) The location was just a bit too far out of town to be in a position to walk.
2) Even though it was a school break week it was very quiet and there was no real activity in the hotel.

If you are the area you should visit the National Stud and Japenese Gardens in Kildare. It is about a 20-30 min car journey.

Thank you for taking to the time to write a review of the Clanard Court Hotel in TripAdvisor.

It's great to hear that you enjoyed your stay. We believe that the very least you should expect from your stay at the Hotel is a clean and comfortable room, fantastic food and superb customer service.

Although we are located a mile out of Athy town, we are always happy to organise a taxi for guests wanting to go out in Athy town. Our location enables us to offer complimentary car parking and also facilitates easier access to the surrounding Kildare/Carlow/Wicklow attractions.

We hope to see you back here again soon. Perhaps, you'd enjoy staying over a weekend when we have live music in Bailey's Bar also.

Regards

I would highly recommend this hotel for a wedding. Everything was handled very professionally and nothing was too much trouble. The food was excellent (I defy you to come away hungry), the layout of the function room was beautiful. The staff were very friendly and helpful.
It was mentioned by one of the guests (who travels the world) that the standard of the rooms was world class. The guests who stayed for 2/3 nights felt they were given a very good deal and the food in the restaurant was excellent.
Claire,the Wedding Planner was very amenable and flexible which made the day very special for the bridal couple. It is a day we will remember fondly and this is due in no small way to the staff at the Clanard Court. Many Thanks for a wonderful day!
