“Delightful hotel - fantastic service.”
Reviewed 24 April 2012

I selected this hotel just outside Waterford based on various reviews - I couldn't have made a better choice. Location is lovey, overlooking the estuary and the city. Slightly out of the centre but only a few mins drive. Large airy modern rooms with tasteful decor. But the best thing about the Athenaeum is the service. Stan, his daughter, wife and waiting staff were amazing. Nothing was too much trouble - even 12 for a dinner that started at 1130pm!! I wholeheartedly recommend the hotel and look forward to staying again.

Me and my partner stay nearby at a family holiday home near the Hook Lighthouse twice a year, but decided to leave our daughter with the family and spend a rare night away.

We booked a deal whereby dinner, bed and breakfast was included, and we upgraded our room to the four poster bed room, and was not dissapointed. The room was very spacious, the bed was comfortable, and the room boasts a beautiful view of the river Suir, and is totally peaceful.

The dinner was amazing. Usually the highlight of my trips to Wexford /Waterford is normally a night out at the Aldridge Lodge, whereby the food and service is very very good (worth checking out), but the dinner at Zaks was outstanding.

The service was second to none, and the waiter simply could not be more helpful, a true asset to the hotel. The wine we picked had just sold out and the waiter highly recommended a wine (which was not more expensive) and tasted lovely.

My partner had the goats cheese tart, and I had the lamb spring rolls, and we both had pork belly for our mains, and it was truly divine.

If I had to have one negative it would be the back ground music, we were both quite fed up of listening to David Gray playing by the end of our meal (but it definitely won't put me off visiting again).

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a view of the River Suir

Me and my wife really enjoy the two night we stay there, it's a bit outside Waterford city but well worth it, the staff are really nice and helpfully, the food is nice, when booking a room make sure you ask for a room with a view and not the car park that I got. Not a hotel to bring young kids to cause there would be nothing for them to do there.

Enjoyed this restored Georgian House. Although close to Waterford downtown, it's in a secluded spot surrounded by trees and a view of the River Suir. The bedroom was pleasant. The food was outstanding, especially our evening meal. Imaginative! It was our wedding anniversary and when they knew we enjoyed several little extra treats that made it special.

We stayed on Thursday last. We loved the "country house" feel. We checked into a lovely sized bedroom with an excellent bathroom with shower. Before dinner we had drinks in a lovely comfortable room off the bar and dining room. While we ate our beautifully cooked and presented meal, we could see the lights of Waterford below but not a sound of cars or noise of any sort. Breakfast was also another triumph. Try the banana bread ! We both had freshly cooked ommelets. There was a great variety to choose from. We will defenitely be back.
