This was our 3rd stay at the hotel. That would tell you that overall, we like it. The staff are always helpful and the food in the restaurant is really very good. The last time we stayed somewhere else in Waterford, we actually ate at Zaks that night too! It's a little bit out of the way regarding the city...

Stayed in this beautiful boutique hotel just 5 minutes outside of Waterford last week. My wife and my 2 year old son had a fantastic 2 days (Monday & Tuesday).

The Athenaeum House Hotel is situated in a very quiet discreet location just outside Waterford City. The drive up to the hotel is picturesque but also very hard to find! The interior is stunning and with it being Christmas time they had a magnificent tree in the reception area. The receptionist was very helpful as was everybody we encountered throughout...

Myself and my boyfriend stayed here nearly 2 weeks ago. Staff were among some of the friendliest i've encountered yet which helped make it a great stay. The room was fairly basic, and the food in Zaks restaurant was really really delicious. As mentioned by someone else it has more of a country house feel rather than a hotel. Value...

We recently spent the weekend at this hotel, which was a Christmas gift from our daughter. Firstly this place is not easy to find, a bit off the beaten track up a very bumpy residential lane surrounded by private properties. On first impression it did look quite nice in the March sunshine. We were given a room in the basement...
