Breakfast Vouchers Mix Up
The hotel was great. My friend bought breakfast vouchers on Saturday evening. When we went for our breakfast the following day there was a lot of confusion. She does not remember been given any vouchers and the receptionist refused to check the computer to confirm that we had paid for them. It was a very embarrassing situation that did not need to happen.

Good City Center Hotel.
Enjoyable stay. Room was very comfortable and bed was nice. Check in was efficient and courteous. Breakfast was good. Only issue is €12 for overnight parking in a very strange carpark with only one exit/entrance !

Shopping trip
This was a return visit for shopping trip with family & friends. We disappointed with service in the bar on the 1st night. Service was very slow, even though there was 3/4 bar staff. Bar was not busy to justify bad service. In my bedroom i had a drink of water during the night& ended up with a cut lip due to a chip on the glass. I advised hotel reception of incident to avoid it happening again. Overall the Clayton is lovely hotel , excellent location for shopping.
