I stayed at this guest house this weekend with some friends during a roadtrip. I have to say that I am glad we only had to spend one night there. The owner, Michael, is super friendly, and it is great that there are accommodations for people traveling on a budget. For this price, you get what you pay for. The... More

"Cheap" (50€/double) but I would pay more for a decent/more central place. 15mins walk to main sights, cracks all over the room, bad view, uncomfy bed, no soundproof but owner is very nice! Go if on strict budget/one night. There's also a parking just facing the hotel.

I must admit it's taken me a long time to write this, but I'd like to say a big thank you to Michael & the staff for making me feel welcomed during my 5 night stay in April 2013. The accommodation was very comfortable, spotless, and breakfast was lovely . Additionally, the hospitality was outstanding with Michael & staff being... More

Location is grand. Across the road from the busterminal, and across the river from the train. Breakfast was OK plus. However room was not up to scratch. And traffic noise really got going at the break of dawn. Staff friendly and helpfull.

This was not my choice of hotel. The guest house overlooks the River Suir, minutes from the bus and railway stations and ideally situated for the town centre. I read the reviews before I went so was not surprised to find that this guest house needed updating. The carpet on the stairs was dangerously threadbare. The room was sparse, the... More

Although clean and the linen was nice and crisp and freshly laundered the whole place could do with a bit of decorating. Fine for an over night stay if you are not too fussy about the decor. Cheap and cheerful you get what you pay for with this place. Very friendly staff.

Not a nice place to stay. Very tatty, seedy looking from the outside too. There were 3 air fresheners in the room . Misled into booking by finding it on hotel booking websites. It is not a hotel, by any stretch of the imagination.

I was in Waterford on business and wanted something as inexpensive as possible. This was €39 for a single en suite - the same as the hostel down the road, but breakfast was included in the price at The Anchorage. First impressions - it was a bit run down, decor-wise but when I'm looking for budget accommodation decor isn't high... More
