We are based in the UK and chose the Clayton after seeing 4 or 5 other hotels in Sligo as we felt that venue was a stunning location and offered everything that we wanted , what we didn’t expect though was how excellent the staff of the hotel are .
Firstly your wedding co-ordinator Vilma Meenan was a pleasure to deal with , she took real interest in our wedding and kept in regular contact (when she went off on maternity leave Sandra O’Hara did a great job of filling her shoes) , nothing was too much trouble and any questions were quickly answered which kept our minds at ease (you worry about the small things when you’re in a different country!).
We came to have a weeklong stay in January 2017 and were very well taken care of by everyone at the hotel , particularly TREVOR who was in the bar when we went down for dinner one evening . In passing conversation we mentioned we had booked our wedding and would be bringing about 30 guests from the UK over in September and he insisted upon buying us a drink !
When we returned in September he remembered us when we saw him the night before the wedding , he was not due to come in on Friday but did pop in to wish us both the best of luck which was above and beyond the call of duty and a really great thing for him to do .
All of our party from the UK loved the hotel . The rooms, food ,facilities are all second to none and we have had nothing but praise about our choice of venue .
Many of our party had never been to Ireland before and every one of our guests wants to return to see more of Co Sligo and all of them wish to return to “The Clayton” when they do .
Finally a great big thanks to Wojtek and his team that ran the day for us , from operating the music to arranging the tables/food/decorations/ they were superb , if anything was needed there were no questions it was taken care of quickly and without fuss .
At one point I asked for a drink that wasn’t available in the Canis Major and I was told they had it in the main hotel bar , I was about to go and get it when one of the girls on our bar stopped me and insisted they get it and that I shouldn’t miss a moment of our wedding and they would be back as quick as they could .. and so they were !
Absolutely faultless service .
We are delighted to have had our wedding at your hotel and look forward to coming back regularly to celebrate and just to relax in style when we return to Sligo .
