Friendly staff, decent brekkie and a comfortable bed for the night! OK room was a bit dated and the front facing rooms may be a bit loud for some but I really enjoyed my stay. Restaurant good for dinner too!

We stayed at this hotel for our one evening in Waterford. It is located across the street from the river, so it has some nice views and provides a nice opportunity for an evening stroll. The rooms were okay, but need some love and renovation. Our room faced the courtyard and all night, you could hear the music from the... More

It's ok sums this hotel up,for me friendly staff but just a bit dated and bed was so uncomfortable I've been sleeping in the spare twin in the room! Roll together is so bad in a modern hotel...bed needs upgrading and decor is poor. It is also very noisy. On the plus side it has a nice view of the... More

First impression: Clean and brightly lit hotel. Upon arrival, we were greeted by a friendly receptionist, where she checked in very quickly.We got told that breakfast is included and that was a lovely surprise for us, as our online package (booked via booking.com) does not state that. However, we are quickly disappointed. The next morning, we got told that breakfast... More

The stay in Dooley's was all that we could ask for. The room was one of the larger ones we had while travelling around the country. It was about as well located as one could want in Waterford. In the middle of the Quay, within minutes walking distance to all the tourist attractions and downtown shopping. We had a wonderful... More

Was really just passing through but had no issues with the room or the service, everyone was friendly. Has a nice bar/restaurant in the lobby. Free wifi in the rooms. There is no free parking but it is 5 euro to park just across the street and if you talk to the front desk person they will sell you a... More

No complaints! The room was clean .. only there for 1 night but the location was great..Had the B&B and it was a very good breakfast. The Thai massage offered was fantastic! Service was a little slow in the pub but overall the people were helpful and friendly.
