“great atmosphere”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 March 2012

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.

The hotel is right on the waterfront of the town, main shopping area around the corner from it. Great for a weekend getaway. Breakfast was huge, it filled us up for the day :) staff very friendly and helpfull, definitely coming back.

My wife and I are currently staying in this beautiful historic hotel and we think it is great. The hotel dates from the 1700s and is right on the waterfront of this ancient town of Waterford which dates back to 900 AD. Our room was only 50 Euros per person per night and it is fully equipped with everything we could need. Downstairs is a wood-panelled bar full of character and a nice restaurant where we had breakfast. The staff are just great. We had no idea Waterford had so much to offer - there are historic buildings (13th and 14th century) just around the corner as well as the world famous Waterford Crystal factory. Also plenty of shopping and restaurants,bars and quaint seaside villages a short drive away. This is our favourite part of Ireland from what we have seen so far. There is free wired internet which is very fast. We highly recommend this hotel.

Stayed at the Granville in April and again in August of 2011. The hotel is clean, well appointed rooms, has wireless internet and excellent full breakfast with attentive staff. The hotel itself reminds me of my trips to the Ireland, the UK and the Continent years back when hotels had their own character and weren't all Holiday Inn clones like they seem to be today.
I plan to stay here again when I'm back in Waterford for business or for pleasure.

We stayed here for 3 nights from 20th Jan 2012. We found the reception staff very helpful and efficient. Our room was in a quiet area on the third floor and it was very comfortable and clean. Our bathroom was very spacious and spotless. The shower was in the bath, which I am always concerned about, but there was a safety grab rail. Plenty of towels, soaps and shampoo/body wash. The bar was very busy and the service was quick and courteous. I had a bit of a problem with the access to the smoking area, as whenever anyone opened the door, the smell of smoke wafted in to that area of the bar. The breakfast was first class, with lots of choice and again the service was excellent. We would love to return to this hotel again in the near future.
