My first impression of the hotel was that it needed a lick of paint on the outside & the rooms needed a little modernisation. The restaurant area was beautiful though. Food was gorgeous & staff extremely friendly. The hotel was very quiet with not many people around which made the atmosphere quite dead. In saying that, you will not get... More

Had a lovely overnight stay for my wife's birthday. We upgraded to one of the suites which was worth it to really make it special. The room was in the original Georgian part of the house with views over the garden and across the river to the city. We had a wonderful dinner in Zacks restaurant which was simple food... More

The Hotel was really lovely, nice, quiet location outside Waterford. The rooms were lovely and spacious. The TV defo needs updating though. Fab grand piano in the hall. The staff were really nice and friendly. The lady in the restaurant could not have been nicer and ditto for the girl in reception. Would most definitely go back.

When we eventually found the hotel as the sat nav took us further up the road, the first impression was great it looked a lovely place. As we entered into the reception we were warmly welcomed by who I'm guessing was the manager. He then gave us all the information on the town with a map showing where we could... More

Will definitely be staying again. 10 out of 10 for nearly everything, the only thing negative I'd say is the TV in the room was a bit small for the great size of the room. Lovely quite location but only minutes from town centre.

Lovely area, stayed here for 2 nights. Breakfast was fab the first morning, we requested room service on both mornings but on second morning it was totally different,looked different and tasted different and was served by a rude manager/owner. He seemed more interested in looking around our room than actually serving breakfast. The rest of staff were very nice but... More

Dear Eve Thank you for your review. We appreciate your points and have taken them aboard. Our chicken wing sauce is home made and doesn't include tobasco, our chips are also homemade and fluffy on the inside. Your comments about my husband Stan are totally out of character, perhaps he was looking for somewhere to put the tray down. Our... More

Great hotel for the price we paid. The rooms are good size and bathroom is nice a clean. Great location but can be difficult to find as the sign can be easily missed. Ample parking available and very close to the Waterford town centre.

Stayed there overnight with my wife and general impression was quiet good. Lovely location with mature gardens and view of the river. Service at reception and restaurant/bar was very good and food was well prepared and presented. We stayed in suite, but these could do with some moderisation. In particular the noise from extraction system in the bathroom is loud... More

Beautiful hotel absolutely silent nights sleep,only a 5 minute drive from Waterford city centre. excellent food,friendly staff. Miles ahead of some 5 star hotels I've been in. Definitely be back again if I'm anywhere in the south-east. If you want a relaxing silent nights sleep this is definitely the hotel for you. 5 stars
