“Tower Hotel not really a 4 star... No hot water!!!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 24, 2013

Well let me start off with something good. It's in a great location, you can walk to everything. But, I think that about it.

A little over priced. The rooms need a makeover, they're dated. Bathroom in my room was large (room 232 very loud couldn't sleep) but you could can see some mould here and there. And by the time we got up at 7:30 am we had NO HOT WATER!!! For a hotel of this size to run out of hot water a 7:30 am is just silly. So, ended up going down to have breakfast before taking a shower. I spoke to the man at the front desk and he said that they were working on fixing the water. He asked if we would need more time... So I said, yes please. He gave us a 2:00 pm check out. But, when we got ack to our room at 1:00 pm we were already locked out of our room.

Overall not that great of a experience.

Excellent hotel - great location - right in the heart of Waterford. Within walking distance of shops, pubs, restaurants, etc. A few minutes drive from Waterford Castle. A great choice all round. All staff that we met during our stay were excellent and friendly.

Room Tip: Higher floors - as traffic can be noisy outside.

Stayed in Tower last weekend and everything was excellent. Lovely family room -333- for Me, my better half and our two children (9 and 7). Couldnt fault anything. Lovely meal in bar on Friday evening served promptly by a very friendly waitress who to my sons delight was a wrestling fan! Breakfast excellent on both mornings and a lovely residents area to enjoy a few drinks on saturday evening. Hope to get back soon. Perfect base to explore a great city.

Food in dining room was lovely, and nice choice on the menu. Great selection of breakfast. Central hotel, so handy for shopping and touriing waterford etc. Rooms on the first foor are a joke. Very small. beds very very uncomfortable and far to low.. I had to sleep at end of bed, I really would not call it sleep, my back suffered on account of this.Just one good point, in the bedroom is a mirror and hairdryer on the dresser. Great idea. Hotel very busy with familys etc. Nice size swimming pool with all amenties. One of my girlfriends had a lovely massage in the Tower.

Room Tip: Do not take a room on the 1st floor, unless you are goin to be out partying all night, so bed wont m...

Free parking adjacent to hotel,staff very helpfull,the meal I had in the restaurant was one of the best I've ever had the nicest sea bass I've ever had. The bad points the bed was uncomfortable and the room was very small considering the star rating, no bath and getting into the toilet door was a squeeze. If it wasn't for the food I wouldn't go back

Very good position in the city, parking is free and quite large. The rooms are spacious and modern. It was noisy one night due to rain but I forgot the window open. Breakfast is mainly Irish type but all was good. Appreciated also the gym, quite small but enough for a short travel. I will not change it next time.
