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.

The hostel is at 5 min walk of city centre, and you have the bus station and rail station just opposite at the hostel. The personnel est amical et accueillant. The... More

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

Just got back from a rather interesting over nite stay at the Anchorage. Was awoken at 7am this morning by the sound of the bathroom fan. I was still in bed at this point but got up to check it out. To my surprise a strange man came out of my bathroom!!! he had been in the room sleeping also!... More

It was nothing special, but the room was comfortable enough and it was in a convenient location as well. The B&B is undergoing renovations, so I'm expecting in a year or so it will be much better. The host was extremely friendly and helpful. I cannot testify on the parking conditions on the place, as I took the train into... More
