This is no luxury hotel but you get what you pay for. They do what they do and they do it well. Room is clean, shower is powerful, staff are friendly, parking is safe. Breakfast was ok. I'd stay here again.

Stayed here for two nights in Waterford. The room was basic, quite small but had tea and coffee facilities. It was cleaned perfectly. Breakfast was very little choice. Cereal/toast/full Irish, and the service wasn't great here. Good location, about ten minute walk from all major attractions. Free car park nearby.

The is a comfortable spot for a short trip to explore Waterford. Because of the small size of the city, the key areas are within walking distance. Our room was very small, but we had requested a quiet room given the likelihood of a Hen party and so were in a room in the eves. The staff are very friendly... More

Driving through an estate to find a newly painted blue and cream building, The Barley Field. Quiet a large bedroom and nice breakfast room. Parked right outside the door for the night but lots of street pay & display parking around.

Very happy with room and breakfast was very good. Location is excellent very close to... More

The staff and manger were so friendly and helpful. The music sounded great, even muffled all the way to my room (yet not too loud and obnoxious). You get your money's worth of breakfast for sure. Lovely rooms and environment.

Stayed in this hotel as part of a hen party on the 9th of May. Staff very friendly and very obliging. It's not the most modern of places, no elevator but the staff were brilliant at carrying luggage up the stairs. Just a short walk into the town. Taxi ride about €5 into the town. Would advise taxi if your... More
