A nice hotel with reasonable food and good value for money. Not 5 star food but well presented and cooked to a very good standard and very enjoyable. Menu a bit on the short side. Floor staff 100% and couldn't do enough for you but the bar staff are not up to speed and really let the hotel down. It... More

Stayed here a few weekends for work, best thing was coming down to the pub and not having to ask what pint you'd want cause Sally-ann would know what you'd want. Plus she could always take a joke with a smile. Plus she can pour a pint of Guinness in 119.4 seconds.

We stayed at this hotel only for one night. We had stayed in lovely hotels by the countryside in Galway and Killarney and were expecting the same in Waterford. The room was dark, the hallway was noisy, we could hear loud music playing in the bar downstairs. Sleeping arrangements were not bad, there was stable wi-fi connection and the location... More
