Just arrived home after a 4 night stay at the Claymore on a National Coach Tour, and once again we really enjoyed the experience. The Claymore is by no means 5 star, but the hotel is clean, the food is plentiful, well cooked, with a good selection. The hotel and rooms are adequately heated and the staff are extremely obliging....

Many thanks for your in-depth and interesting review. I'm delighted to read that you enjoyed the hot buffet breakfast. It has taken some time for our guests to get used to it but I think it's running quite well now although I understand it doesn't suit everyone. The wifi in the hotel is hopefully going to be upgraded which should...

Just got back from a 4 Night break with National Holidays. If you read other reviews it will say that the hotel is a bit tired in places. It is. A top tip is pay extra for a room with a view. The staff were excellent, very attentive and helpful. We enjoyed the meals. Didn't have a bad one. It's...
