This is one of the those moments when you arrive home, and the first thing you want to do is to write good review about a hotel that stole your heart, about a place you totally fell in love with! This is exactly the case for me this time. It was a short getaway holiday for me and my wife... More

Underwhelmed by the room but it was very quiet and the bed was comfortable. The food and staff were the big highlights - we had dinner on one night and it was really good, interesting menu and fresh ingredients. Staff were helpful, warm and friendly. I would certainly stay here again.

I stayed here last weekend on a short break from Dublin. It really worked well for me, lovely big room which was comfortable and the breakfast was superb. I didn't eat at the hotel but did bump into friends there and apparently they had a super evening meal as well. As others have noted, when you stay in a house... More

I recently visited this hotel and dined with friends for a reunion. This was not the first time I have eaten there but yet again I was very impressed. There was a wonderful Goats Cheese Cheescake to start with vegetable crisps and pickled walnuts a picture on a plate. A trio of Dunmore East fish for main and some amazing... More

Recently stayed at this hotel with my wife, a stay with dinner included package. I've never come across staff as nice and helpful, they really are a credit and couldnt do enough to help. The restaurant and the food were top notch with the setting of the restaurant overlooking the river & city is beautiful. The menu and the quality... More

We stayed in Anthenaeum hotel recently and we were amazed that it hasn't been highlighted more as "THE" place to stay in Waterford. Rooms are very large and ours had a beautiful view of the river and the city lights at night. Staff are so incredibly helpful and charming, nothing was a bother. But my husband and I couldn't believe... More

Everything from the food, the accomodation and the delightful staff made a wedding weekend here memorable. I didn't want to leave. Amazing views from the garden. The Chef managed to produce excellent food for 40-50 people the whole weekend. Would highly recommend.

This is a very nice hotel situated just over the river from the Waterford City Centre. We stayed for 3 nights and had a very nice large room. The staff there are very friendly. We had a very enjoyable meal in their restaurant on the first night. The breakfast was excellent with a number of choices on the menu. The... More
