My stay at Portree Guest House was simply perfect! The place is really central, close to bus and train station and next to all services, shops, pubs and restaurants. Rooms and common areas are very cosy, spacious and clean. Portree is a beautiful Georgian building equipped with modern facilities as a private free car parking, a 24h self-catering kitchen completely...

Just across the water from the train station. Staff are very nice and work with you - very accommodating. It appeared the room was recently redone, real clean and a new TV. Location is close to all, as Waterford City isn't huge.

The service and the friendliness of the staff fooled me into believing I was in a 4* hotel. Just wanted to spend a night after travelling but then I changed my mind and decided to stay longer. Dominic and Cieran were great. I really recommend this property to everyone, this is a very well run establishment and what you get...

The room was very spacious and clean. Since we were a family of four, the staff allowed us to put our suitcases in the adjoining room since there were no guests staying the room at the time to spread out a bit and have more storage which was very nice of them. It helped a lot the next morning when...

We did not like the place. The shower was mouldy, the interior quite used-up, the WiFi connection in our room very poor and it was relatively expensive as it did not even include breakfast. We have been in really pretty B&Bs for the same price including breakfast. Strange enough, it was listed under B&Bs in booking.com.

Sorry you didn't like our place. On the price - we're generally one of the cheapest places in Waterford. (And as regards there being cheaper elsewhere, you'll find that there aren't many city B&B's cheaper than us anywhere in the country - since you stayed on a Saturday night in August the price is slightly higher but I'm sure you'd...

Very friendly staff, nice rooms and good location. Breakfast is not included but choice between continental and irish and there is plenty. The common area is small but cosy. There is a kitchen but we didn't use it. The only thing that could be better is the noise... You can hear the people in their rooms around you and the...

I had booked to stay here for a Friday and Saturday night to attend a wedding. The morning of the Friday I managed to injure myself and had to spend the day talking to doctors instead of travelling and checking in. The staff were very understanding and modified the booking for me despite being technically outside the limit to cancel...

I had been in Portree for a few days and the hostel is really nice. The staff are great and friendly. I had been in a single room, with bathroom and a small television in the room. Also the hostel is near the bus station and very easy to find. In conclusion, I really recomend it.

Let me begin with the most positive aspect: the staff. The owner actually cares about guests and always tries to fulfill their wishes. The staff are young people from all over the world, I could ask them anything, they are lovely and they even asked me to go out with them in the evenings, we had a lot of great...
