Paid premium rate for premium room. Was very disappointing. in general no atmosphere, no open fires, there were fireplaces but they were filled by ornaments. small bar but not relaxing. Was expecting Castle Durrow standard but nowhere close. On the plus side breakfast was good. By the way it is only a kilometer from the city centre if you actually... More

Had a 2 night stay in the Anthenaeum House Hotel last weekend with my partner and we can't wait to go back again! Had never heard of this wonderful hotel before but got a really good deal so headed down for the weekend. From the minute we arrived we were made to feel so welcome. Our room was nice and... More

Stayed for one overnight with family. Lovely evening meal and breakfast the following morning. Cosy atmosphere, so much so we did not leave the hotel for the evening. Rooms spacious and comfortable and good power shower also. Will recommend and would return again.

Arriving late (9pm) due to road diversions is never ideal, but when you are offered space in the restaurant without problem- you realise that booking this charming hotel was a good idea! I would give 5 stars to this hotel but for a very few negatives- but mainly positives. Biggest positive was every member of staff I engaged with....more about... More

My partner and I recently enjoyed a fabulous one night stay in this beautiful boutique hotel. The hotel itself was beautiful and staff were fantastic from the moment we entered and couldn't have been more helpful. The rooms were bright and spacious (executive room) and were immaculately clean! Bed was huge and really comfy. Noise levels were barely existent, Idyllic... More

We stayed in Anthenaeum hotel recently and we were amazed. This is a very nice hotel situated just over the river from the Waterford City Center. Room was very large and had a beautiful view of the river and the city lights at night. The staff were very friendly. We had a very enjoyable meal in their restaurant. I especially... More

Excellent hospitality and comfortable room with lovely view to the river. We stayed on a "Dine and Dream" package which was really good value. The restaurant offers high quality local ingredients cooked with flair - one main course was overcooked and this was sorted out with charm and efficiency. This is an ideal overnight stop around an hour's drive from... More

Stayed here last month for a wedding, hotel is in a beautiful setting but lacks attention to detail in both customer service and maintenance. Asked for my phone to be charged during the meal and although the lady took it to reception, when I went to get it 2 hours later it was sitting on the desk and had not... More
