Reviewed yesterday NEWvia mobile

The hotel was a little dated, the rooms were pretty average. In the morning I found the shower in the room did not work (I did not complain just had a bath). The breakfast was not great so did not bother to have any.

I recently stayed at the Clayton for the most recent women in business event at the RDS. The hotel was a great fit. Room was clean and spacious with spare towels and tea and coffee making facilities. Breakfast was great. So handy for the RDS only catch..you pay for parking and check in process was abit slow. Definitely recommend!

If you are going to the Aviva stadium then it is a good location as only a 10 minute walk. The hotel is clean and tidy and the staff at reception and in the bar were wonderful. My main complaint was the room. It was small and very hot and the only way to cool the room down was by...

Lovely hotel. Big rooms, good bed. Customer service was good & so was the food in the restaurant. Only issue is there could be better showers. A short cab ride to the city center and a bus from the airport goes directly to the hotel in 40 minutes.

Hotel staff very friendly, hotel is well located with a bus stop right outside the hotel. Had a family room with 2 double beds, which was fine. Room very clean, no complaints. Breakfast was not in our deal so didn't eat there. Overall, very nice.

The hotel is warm and well-run with a good buffet breakfast and adequate Dinner provision, although the restaurant can be a little chilly. Rooms are clean and comfortable with everything necessary being provided. Transport is good with the DART station ten minutes away and the Airport Bus serving the hotel.

The exterior of this building is stunning and beautiful when lit up at night, but inside is dated and badly needs a huge cash injection to become a modern contemporary hotel. Old mahogany furniture. Food was very good in the restaurant
