“Great Stay”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 7, 2013

Stayed here for New Years Eve and New Years Day for the 2nd year in a row. This year I have to say was better than last year. Check-in was the easiest check-in I ever had to do. Evening meal on NYE which was part of the deal was excellent again this year. Spanish music also was played during the meal. Location is excellent near the shops and Pubs of Wexford Town. Library bar is a great place to relax during the day. Will be back again next year.

We stayed here for one night while attending a family gathering just after Christmas. We had heard great things about the hotel and were very impressed by the reception area. Unfortunately the room did not live up to our expectations for the price we paid, and was quite basic, with a fairly old 'wet room' style bathroom that had dispensers instead of bottled toiletries and ended up getting quite messy very easily due the water getting everywhere. We got breakfast to our room and weren't impressed by the quality of the food, and it was cold.

We did have a nice drink in the bar, and found the location extremely convenient for traveling further in the South East (the hotel is extremely close to train and bus routes) so if you're willing to pay a little extra for that then this might be a good option. Oh and the girls on the front desk were super nice!

I stayed in Whites on NYE and the experience was a disappointment from start to finish. Staff not interested in guests. Rooms were NOT clean. Bathroom was appalling, cracked tiles, mildew on floor, towels only fit for use as rags. The Blanket on our bed was torn. No complimentary water in room. The room looked like there had been a fight in it with dints and scratches and broken furniture. Breakfast on new years day finished at 10:30am and was totally cleared away by 10:45am. The staff disappeared also and we couldn't even get a cup of tea. A disgrace for 170 per night compared to other hotels around the country.

Room Tip: Go somewhere else...

Wonderful Location, so close to tons of shopping and pubs!!! They also validate for parking. Good breakfast and good room. Ask for a room on the 5th floor. We stayed in the junior suite and it was well wot the money. Great views from the fifth floor windows!

GREAT HOTEL to stay at! We found this hotel by luck. We got a room last minute, we were totally surprised. Wonderful coffee bar and pastries downstairs. The desk clerk recommended a wonderful restaurant around the corner, we had drinks in the downstairs bar before going to dinner. Staff were wonderful, hotel environment was GREAT! This is the place to stay in WEXFORD!

Room Tip: Choose a room with a view of the bay/city streets, wonderfu view at night and morning!

I stayed at Whites during the summer for a friends wedding and I was very impressed by such a lovely, modern hotel on its scale in a really central location. The lobby was so light and comfortable - a lovely afternoon tea spot. The wedding was great - good food, good atmosphere and lovely service. My only complaint was finding the room whilst tipsy was a mission - the layout of the hotel is a bit confusing. Other than that, a pleasant stay and I would love to go again and try out the leisure facilities which sounded fab but I missed out on first time round.

We enjoyed a 2 x BB/dinner break for €199. Location & car parking excellent. The staff were exceptionally helpful & welcoming. Our superior room was good but nothing special.The dinners we would rate as standard, with the breakfast above average.
The Tranquillity Spa is not worth paying extra for but the treatments were good. The Wexford Leisure Club ie the pool & sauna were as expected.
