Upon check in I must say the front desk staff were awesome, they are why I gave 3 stars & not 2. They were friendly engaging & helpful.

We stayed here as a couple in May for a few days. Our room was excellent. Special mention to both the toiletries and accommodation staff who were very friendly. We had dinner in Kudos on our first night. We both had a prawn dish which I can't exactly remember, but it was so good. The bartender Eion whipped us up...

I've stayed here every other week since March and I can't speak more highly of the accommodation the staff and the service.

I called into the clarion to collect relatives that were staying in the hotel. While I waited I decided to have a scone and coffee after waiting ten minutes in a quite lobby it arrived. Not only was it a mish mash of plates. The scone was as dry and hard as a concrete block and tasted even worse. The...

We stayed for two nights but I wish we could have stayed longer! The restaurant Kudos was great! The room service and the staff were very nice. Very close to Saint Patricks street where all of the shops are! The room was beautiful and the view was great! Lovely place to stay!

Stayed at the Clarion for 3 nights in June this year with a couple of friends. We had adjoining rooms on the 6th floor facing the atrium, which we found quiet, but as the room had no opening windows we had to use the air conditioning. Towels were changed frequently and the room was cleaned daily. The rooms are of...
