Wonderful stay at the Clayton. It was a very relaxed stay with great service. Also in a prime location of Cork where you were in walking distance to everything.

Great stay during our visit to Cork!
This hotel was a great choice during our stay at Cork. We only spent a night but wish we would have stayed longer. It was definitely one of the biggest hotel rooms we stayed in. The location is excellent - it's close enough to the city center but far enough that its quiet and convenient to walk around. The room was clean and big, and the beds were extremely comfortable. The staff is great - very friendly and knowledgeable about the area. Although we did not use the facilities, they looked pretty complete. The price is on the up side but so far it was worth it.

Awesome Stay!
The room was big and the beds were so comfortable! The staff were so friendly and helpful with suggesting where to eat and helping call taxis. And the hotel itself is within walking distance from everything.

Fair 4.0
Not a 4 star! Not even close.
This is NOT a 4star hotel! I’ve stayed at hotels around the world and this is at best 2star. Pictures online are VERY deceiving. Miserable beds. Dumbfounded at how this hotel has high ratings. The only redeeming thing about this place is the location. The front desk clerks were polite.
