This was our first visit to Clare as part of a group golf trip. There were some very nice points to the hotel, but the not-so-nice outweighed them in our humble opinion. The good: Great staff - very friendly, accomodating, welcoming. Really good food - had 2 dinners and 3 breakfasts and would stop in for dinner again even if...

The accommodations are a bit dated, but the stay was very enjoyable nonetheless. The restaurant was 'upscale' with great food, great service, and a nice selection. The town is really nice and the bakery 'Cops & Doughnuts' is definitely worth visiting. The only downside I could find is that the people sharing the pool stated that the pool and hottub...

Very good golf package with some very nice golf courses. Stayed twice last year with a group of 12. Well treated, great breakfast and nice bar. Heading up again this year in the spring and early fall.

Room was musty smelling with stains on bed, outside lights from near empty parking lot shone in room, making sleep impossible. Overhead vent ran all the time, in the bathroom ceiling with no means to shut it off. Hotel front desk staff and housekeeping informed but nothing was done about it. This hotel was so bad that I left in...

We purchased the two day golf package and added one night, it was excellent value for money. We arrived on Tuesday from Canada, stayed in the hotel which is old but well maintained and charming. The staff in the pub on sight is friendly and accomodating. The room was clean and well appointed. Our package included golf at our choice...

This was the second time I stayed at the Doherty. The first time I had a nice room in the new part. This time, my boyfriend and I asked for the JFK Suite. We had just stayed two days at Soaring Eagle Casino and Resort, and they were full. We wanted a nice room somewhere so we didn't have to...

My husband and booked a room for a weekend getaway. When we made the reservation for the JFK room we were assured our room would be in Quite section. That certainly was not the case!
