Arrived home after a 2 night stay at The Waterford and can't fault anything. Karen and Simon have a beautiful place, they are such a welcoming couple. The b & b has a wonderful modern decor and is located at the north end of the promenade which is ideal if looking for a quieter location. I will definitely return if... More

Our room was very tastefully decorated with so many special luxury touches that really illustrated the thought that had gone into the owners passion to go the extra mile for their guests. from fluffy bath...

We stayed here for two nights and found a warm welcome. The room was beautifully decorated with a large comfy bed and a spacious ensuite with walk in shower. The attention to detail was great, bottled water, emergency kit and bathrobes with slippers. The public areas and rooms were spotlessly clean. The breakfast was home cooked to order and tasted...

I really didn't think Simon and Karen could top my last experience - how wrong was I?! This time I stayed from 3-6 January and couldn't... More
