3 night family break here in visiting Galway for the first time. + Located approx. 10 mins drive from the city centre, it is a good location to travel in and out.

Stayed here recently for a business trip, rooms are great, even for a single traveller, service in bar was efficient, all staff very friendly, breakfast can be hearty and wholesome or healthy if that's what you want. Room clean and modern, would definitely recommend or stay again.

Modern ordinary hotel nice staff clean rooms with better than ordinary beds. Breakfast was terrific with everything you could want. Good value also. Small pool. Weird location to far to walk into city and out in a sort of no mans suburban wasteland!

I traveled to Galway on business this month and haven't stayed in Galway for some time, decided to stay in the Clayton in Ballybrit. The reception area was welcoming and clean-up with staff that were hardly to see you, pleasant and efficient. They had my details from previous visits which made me feel welcome. I had pre booked my room...

I spent a midweek night here while on a business trip. The hotel is located outside the city centre beside a busy dual carriageway overlooking a retail park, so it won't win prizes for setting nor location and would be too far out of the city for a holiday to Galway in my opinion. A car or a hefty taxi...

Recently attended a wedding at this hotel and stayed overnight. The food was excellent and catered for all. The room was spacious and comfortable. Wifi was available in all areas of the hotel. The bar food was good as well and service was fast.

Nice place with good surroundings but if it's busy and you end up having to sit at the back bar be prepared to wait for drinks or have someone take an order and be forgotten about or ask and be told they are too busy. Plenty of staff around but no guidance giving of whose role in this charade is...
