“Ideal location, friendly staff, great hotel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 1, 2011

The Woodlands Hotel was the perfect hotel for our family, in Waterford City for great shopping and restaurants but also only a few minutes to Dunmore East, Tramore for family activities and Passage East and the ferry for a great day trip to Hook Head.

Stayed in previous years for business purposes and decided to use it as a base for a short family break. Got a great deal huge room and great buffet breakfast. Barman friendly and witty, cant say a bad word about any of the staff. Leisure centre perfectly acceptable and clean.
Have stayed in 4 and 5 star that were no better, would definitely recommend..

I have to say we have stayed at this hotel a few times now and it just get better and better, in Barry Howard the manager they have someone who understands what customer service is all about ,food was excellent,rooms could do with a lick of paint but the service more than makes up for this,all in all i would strongly recommend this hotel ,I have stayed in so called 5 star hotels that do not look after you as good.I will be back. This is an oasis that everybody should experienced .

We had our wedding in the Woodlands Hotel, Waterford during July 2011. We had a great day and would thoroughly recommend this hotel to any couple looking for the ideal wedding venue.
There is ample parking for the guests outside the hotel. It is a short drive from the city centre on the Dunmore Road. The facilities were excellent including a swimming pool, sauna, steam room, jacuzzi and childrens pool. There is an onsite hairdressing salon and an excellent beautician service, which some of our guests availed of.
The receptionists were organised, professional and welcoming. The function room accomodated all our guests which allowed plenty of space for dancing in an air conditioned venue. The food was excellent complimented by extremely efficient service. The hotel accomodation was top class with some of the rooms recently refurbished. We were extremely satisfied with the professionalism of the general manager Barry Howard. Many thanks to the Woodlands Hotel for making our day run so smooth and seamlessly.

Our party of 5 consisting of two adults and three children stayed at the Woodlands Hotel recently for two nights stay. When we initially got our room it was incorrect as we had booked a room with a double and two single beds together with a small bed for the youngest child. However, what we got was one double and one single bed. When we questioned this at reception we were told all the family rooms were fully booked and eventually we got a second room compliments of the hotel. This was the only negative side to our trip and we were happy with the outcome. We ate in the bar for our lunch which was good except one of the party was a vegetarian and we had to ask three different people before we could get something to eat which we thought was a bit of a draw back. The rooms were perfect and clean, shower excellent and could not fault them in any way. The breakfast was excellent and service overall excellent. The location also of the hotel was very good in that we were near Tramore for the kids and also Passage West where you can cross over to Wexford. Great Hotel and staff eager to help and would definitely revisit.

We stayed here for a couple of nights and i can say that the staff were very nice at all times, also the food was excellent, we had our dinner in the restaurant the first night and highly recommend the steak :) the breakfast was really nice also with a lot of choice, it was a buffet so u can choose exactly what you like and there was plenty of it on offer!!! The Brass Cock Bar was also very nice, it has lots of corners which i like as i dont like sitting in the middle of crowds!! and plenty of seating plus its got three floors oh and a nice smoking area for us poor smokers who have to go outside haha.

One small problem i had was that the room was awfully stuffy, maybe they should think about getting air conditioning!! Other than that it was a fine big room for three of us and we had a great time,

Thanks very much Woodlands Hotel !!
