We spent five days at the Claymore Hotel from 8th to 12th October on a National Holiday all inclusive break. The Hotel is well run with friendly and very helpful staff. the twin room we had was dated and had a minute TV, but our big disappointment was the lack of a shower just the bath. I asked the manager if we could have a room with a shower he told us they were only 20 rooms with showers and were all occupied, Mm 20 out of 518 rooms poor ratio. He told me if I went to reception I could get a shower attachment to fit on the bath taps. We tried this but there was no place to hang the shower head So still had to sit in the bath. The dinning room was well equipped and pleasant decor to have your meals. The hotel belongs to the Bay Hotels which had at the time 4 coach parties to accommodate for at meal times which the staff run like clock work (no waiting for service at all) The breakfast was excellent with full fried breakfast and many more variants, plus Kippers, and toast and preserves. The evening meals were excellent with starters of soup, smoked salmon, garlic mushrooms, and many more on different days. You have the choice of 3 from the main course menu, and choice of 3 from the sweets all well presented and tasty. The evening entertainment was excellent with a large concert room, only grumble was that the bar was in another room and it was a balancing act to open the door when returning with drinks in your hand. I think the hotel mainly is used for coach parties holidays, but we had a great time and it was certainly value for money on the National Holiday all inclusive.
