Stayed recently with a large party for 6 days in September as part of a special event taking part in the city of Waterford. Generally I found staff and management very polite and helpful. The breakfast here is excellent. The room and facilities a little ‘tired’ in places but ok. Free wifi was very useful, but older pc’s had problems... More

Would like to have written a review of the hotel. However they called me 2 hours before my arrival to say that the hotel was full and a yarn about a problem with my room - the longer the explanation went on, the more it lacked credibility and consistency. I was being bumped. I was farmed out to a "sister"... More

Hotel is noisy, you can hear a lot from rooms next door and people smoking outside hotel. If there's a function in the hotel then that will cause further disruption. However rooms are spacious, staff are helpful and will deal pleasantly with requests. Plenty of parking and free wifi. We paid €70 per nIght room only so not expensive but... More

Im sorry that I even had to give one star for this place, never will I ever book here again! Both staff and management need more customer service training, the only person that made us feel welcome was the lovely girl who was on breakfast duty.

Stayed in the Woodlands for a family wedding recently, and have to say that the servers in the reception were so helpful. The meal was lovely - 4 courses with wine flowing throughout the meal and after. The barmen in the reception hall couldn't do enough for the party...they were very friendly. The rooms were large enough but a bit... More

Stayed in Woodlands Hotel for a family wedding last week. Have to agree with previous reviews and add some of my own. The first impression was walking into the bar area the day before we actually checked-in ... the lunch buffet looked and tasted great but the actual tables, floors and bar counters need an extensive clean. Two people working... More

This hotel is nice. Bit outdated. You don't get the impression that there is a manager, seems more like staff are running around trying to keep things going, they seemed very busy and short staffed. The hotel is grand, smoking area needs to cleaned more frequently, glasses on table, no ashtrays so butts everywhere and litter, this is at front... More
