5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 27, 2013 via mobile

We really enjoyed our stay here this weekend. We found the staff very friendly and accommodating..we had emailed ahead and they had a lovely quiet room organised for us as we were travelling with a newborn.
The atmosphere was very relaxed, the barfood was good & breakfast yummy with fresh fruit & pasteries as well as the hot buffet.
Overall a great value hotel just a few minutes drive from the city centre :)

I stayed here last week in one of the executive rooms, which was finished to a high standard and a very comfortable stay. The food served here was to a high standard with plenty of menu choice, so it should suit everyone. Breakfast was a joy, one of the best that I have had in a while.
The other added bonus of my stay here was the free parking and also the customer service was excellent. I would definitely recommend a stay there. It will suit business trips as well as family trips due to its easy location and excellent facilities which cater for all.

We stayed in this fantastic hotel for two nights (next time it will be longer!!) for work. Food was lovely, as was the service - breakfast and dinner on the two nights. The room was comfortable and had everything we needed to hand. The staff were ever pleasant and helpful. The room was comfortable and clean.

I live localy and pass by the hotel a lot for work. I find the hotel well located for having good food and getting back on the road. I had a sirloin steak this week and to be fair it was the best I have had anywhere in a long while. And as always there is no messing with the service, from great staff.

We were a group of golfers over to try some of the great golf courses in the Waterford area.

From the check-in to departure the staff could not have been friendlier or more helpful, The rooms were great as was the food and the bar was a very welcoming place to come back to after a long day.

Excellent location for the main roads and for the short journey into town to explore.

Would be happy to come again.

We booked with Livingsocial for 1 night and got bed and breakfast and a bottle of wine if dining in the restaurant for €49, great value. There was no late checkout included but on request it was no problem whatsoever, the beds are comfortable and rooms spacious. If I had 1 complaint it could be that 1 or 2 of the staff could have been a little friendlier but overall a nice and pleasant stay and would travel here again.

Myself & my boyfriend stayed here on Saturday night and the hotel is just fab. It's only classed as a 3 star but the service and food are definitely 5 star! From the minute we checked in until check out you couldn't find fault with the hotel. We had dinner in the bar on Saturday night and it was divine and the atmosphere was brilliant. A special mention to Aoife who served us in the bar Saturday and was working again for breakfast on Sunday.
