Myself and my Mum visited Athenaeum House Hotel for a nights stay as a birthday treat for my Mum. The staff were excellent throughout our stay and made my Mum feel extra special on her birthday. We dined in Zak's restaurant in the evening and again the staff were wonderful and the food was delicious. Breakfast the next morning was... More

Took a 3 night break away with my husband and our new baby for our first family stay-cation! Couldn't recommend this hotel highly enough! This hotel is just on the outskirts of the town and is only a 20 min walk in. We took the buggy I and out of the town everyday and enjoyed it immensely! The staff were... More

Warning - don't trust your SATNAV; obtain local directions and look for the signs. The hotel is not in central Waterford. We needed a last minute room in Waterford for a family of four, and this hotel was great! We booked two Executive Single rooms with breakfast. Each room easily fits 3 people. The extensive cook to order breakfast was... More

Went to Zaks today to celebrate Mothers Day. Enjoyed a superb 3 course lunch. The wine we chose was not available, and the owner (Stan Power) helpfully suggested a White from a small Rhone Valley producer ( Marius), which was superb and cost less than the unavailable wine. Not often such things happen! The staff allowed my daughter to play... More

Enjoyed a delicious Mothers Day lunch with the family in Zacs restaurant. At short notice, we were accomodated without issue, served a delicious meal & provided with a delightful goody bag for mum to take home (scrumptious).

We stayed here for just one night but were very impressed by the whole hotel. Our room was reasonably luxurious, and very quiet. Wi-fi in the room was strong and reliable…always a plus. The food in the restaurant was of the highest quality and very reasonably priced. The hotel was a little hard to find as our hire car didn't... More

The photos of this hotel make it look a lot nicer than it is. Our bed was ridiculously uncomfortable and sagging in the middle and we had a view of the parking lot. Maybe if we had asked for an upgrade we would've had a better mattress and a view overlooking the gardens and river. Since this hotel is located... More

We just had our small intimate wedding in this hotel. It only consisted of 14 adults (ourselves included) and what Stan, Mailo and Staff provided for us was beyond perfect. I couldn't have imagined it being any better. Our room on arrival on Thursday was set up for myself and our two kids, and was a beautiful spacious room. We... More

Myself and my girlfriend got a deal off the living social website to stay in the Athenaeum House Hotel a year or so ago. At first we thought this was a fantastic deal, one night stay, meal for two, drink on arrival and strawberry's dipped in chocolate on arrival all for the princely sum of about €70-€80 if I remember...
