Nice hotel that we booked through booking.com for one night . The hotel is nice outside and clean on arrival but a little strange as I think its better described as a guest house. There is no bar or reception area as such. The breakfast area is a little counter top with a tiny selection of continental delicacys.This was very... More

I have been to Waterford several times now travelling on my own and always make a point of staying here. The welcome received by the reception staff is always a credit to the owners - efficient, friendly and informative. The period style of the hotel is something that i love it makes a refreshing change to staying in a more... More

It rocked, lovely old Georgian room massive bed, bay window with a cracking view and large bathroom. The bar and restaurant was... More

A lovely old world hotel, small enough to make you feel that this is your private hideaway. The staff are vert friendly and helpful, and the French chef is excellent. We have visited this hotel before and still very good and as expected. The main rooms are well decorated, but the bedrooms are a little tired. Frayed towels, curtains need... More

We stayed for one night and had two rooms. Both rooms were clean and comfortable although they were a bit dimly lit and the beds a bit hard. Although the hotel is a bit difficult to find, it's in a good location once you know your way. Dinner in the hotel was quite good. We didn't stay for breakfast as... More

We were disappointed with our room as it was in the basement and it was dark and quite dismal the decor unfortunately did not do it any favours as it was too dark for the room . The bed should have been a double it was two beds pushed together which seemed really old... More
