I stayed in the hotel Granville which is right on the river front in Waterford city. The location is excellent and allowed us to walk wherever we needed to get to(plenty of shops, restaurants, pubs) We had a two night stay from 23 to the 25 of February 2012.I was with a party of seven, we book two doubles and one treble room. Two of our rooms were on the second floor, one on the first floor .all the rooms had a different décor and beautifully appointed, the treble room was a bit of a let-down due to the fact that there is no view as it has a building blocking the window, Our bathroom was very spacious and spotless, in the treble room we had two showers, one was in the bath the other was a walk in shower. The hotel provided plenty of towels, soaps, shampoo/body wash and a hair dryer.
We had dinner in the hotel restaurant on the first night. we ordered turkey and ham, Pork and fish all came with roast and mash potatoes and veg which were served to us by very attentive staff, Turkey was a bit dry and the pork was in a batter which was a bit disappointing ,the fish and ham were lovely as were the veg and we all enjoyed the deserts
The next morning we went down for breakfast which was plentiful, with homemade pastries ,breads, the nicest muffin I have ever tasted and a great choice for freshly cooked food, full Irish,kippers,poach egg ,pancakes, the list goes on .I can honestly say it is the best breakfast I have ever had in any hotel I have stayed in .
The Granville hotel has a lovely atmosphere, what really impressed me was the friendliness of all the staff, they are polite, courteous and helpful, the standard of the service was excellent, I would have no hesitation in recommending or rebooking this hotel as I thoroughly enjoyed my stay.
Parking is across the road in a public car park, the Parking ticket is validated by the hotel between 5pm and 11am. Outside these hours you pay the hourly rate, we were told we could move the car to another car park a little further up the road which has a fixed tariff of five euro but the hotel will sell you a token for this car park for three euro.
