Easy to find when entering the city. Right across the street from the Harbor. Walking distance to everything. Our dinner there was awesome! Only complaint was the rooms were showing their age and outdated. However they were in the process of upgrading them while we were there.

Staff was friendly and helpful. Location is great and makes it easy to walk and see the area. Room was a good size and clean. The bathroom seemed to be updated recently. The room had a hairdryer and ironing board. The bar area is very roomy and nice.

The food was... More

This had to be the hardest place to find the designated room number. It seemed the numbering system was askew. Room numbers did not follow in logical order. The hotel is on the riverfront in what was once a Viking stronghold. We were able to walk around the area with no problems.

Rooms basic but spacious with all amenities supplied. The hotel, however is a little tired. Loved the beer garden area. Hotel is in a good location within walking distance to the village and some sites. Suggest a river view room. Average buffet breakfast.

Basic hotel. Not one of nicer hotels in Waterford. Our room looked at apartments across street-no view. Toilets had a problem. Room was hot and Windows don't open. Food was average. I would not stay here again.

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
