We stayed one night at the Portree Guesthouse as part of trip from town to town in Wales & Ireland. We found the owners extremely welcoming and friendly and they offered helpful tips for what to do in the city. The location is on the edge of central and was a short walk to central Waterford and there was a... More

We were travelling through Waterford and found two beds in the dormatory here. The hostel is located at the corner of the city center, everything is easily walkable. The guy at the reception made us feel very welcome, although the place has a relatively old feeling to it. And I get why someone above said it feels a bit creepy.... More

I stayed in this hostel for one night. I didn't really like the road which leads to it, it wasn't very lively, and everything was closed. The house itself is very nice, and the owner was absolutely lovely and very welcoming! :) The hostel is under the reception, offers two five-bed-rooms with comfy beds and a lot of space. The... More

Close by the centre of the city, this guesthouse is in a well preserved older building with clean, modern facilities. Everything worked well. The shower is very small. The wi fi would not work in my room. Breakfast was bountiful. Staff were friendly. Parking is in an open yard at the rear of the premises.

When we arrived to check in we thought the place was a bit creepy because it was old and smelled bad. The owners were not welcoming at all. They didn’t expect us to arrive because they had lost our reservation. Fortunately we had a copy of it and there was no one in the hostel so they gave us a... More

I stayed here for one night. It was good for the price. I could see where some people might not like it, as the rooms are a bit outdated. It was chilly out and the room had plenty of heat, and the shower had plenty of warm water. The owners are pleasant and they have parking out back if you... More

I have stayed at the Portree Guesthouse on several occasions, staying in different rooms as I sometimes travel alone (for work) or with my partner. I have never been disappointed. It is accurate to say that the Portree Guesthouse has it all - a wonderful, friendly welcome on arrival; very helpful and courteous staff; rooms are clean and well laid... More

We were here for Spraoi. Wonderful festival! This was a great place to stay. Signs are posted everywhere for reminders about rules and procedures. There is a kitchen downstairs to cook your own meals, but we could never figure out the stove. They need a sign. This is not a four star hotel, but clean and comfortable enough for the... More
