“shocking”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed August 15, 2007

This had a friendly welcome and we checked into our room. When we got to the room it had a very strong smell of mould and damp. We booked a double room as we are a couple, hovever the bed was only a queen size bed and as my other half is six foot four this was not acceptable. The room was next to the car park and when we asked for an alternative room there was nothing available. So we had to check out. The receptionist insisted we pay the full amount even though we were only on the premises 20 mins. We were extremely dissappointed and upset with this.

The Whitford is a nice hotel, very like plenty of other hotels in Ireland. Not outstanding but value for money, comfortable, clean and with very friendly staff. The food in the hotel restaurant is lovely too. The only problem I would have is that the window in our room overlooked the main road and the carpark,so we could only open it a little. As a result, the heat in the room at night was almost and I ended up having to sleep on the floor!

Other than that,lovely

On arrival was dissapointed as from the outside it looks like a guest house with an extension out the back. Reception area quite old fashioned and dated but the receptionist was so friendly and I then realised this was a homely friendly family run hotel not the run of the mill chain hotel. Standard room on first floor in the orginal old building was a bit dated with a view of extractor fans from the kitchen area. De-luxe rooms are in the new section and would reccommend the extra cost. Leisure centre excellent, very clean and well run. Footprints restaurant provided a relaxing romantic meal that could not be faulted but the high-light has to be the best cooked to order breakfast. Staff were so friendly and helpful. Very relaxing atmosphere, great value and close to Wexford town. Will be returning but to a deluxe room.

i stayed here with work for three night in may 2007. i chose it because it had sounded good. when i first seen it i was bit disappointed. it looks like an enormous bed and breakfast that has grown over the years. as it is family run it has a few quirks that you would not expect from a chain of hotels but nothing out of the ordinary. the food in the bar was really quite good and i suppose it had to be as the restaurant does not open till seven o'clock at night. i would probably stay here again as there is a real lack of hotels in the wexford area.

  • Liked — the fact i had a superior room
  • Disliked — late opening times of the restaurant and no buffet breakfast.

We stayed here for a couple of nights last week, admittedly i wouldnt normally stay in a three star property, but as it had the best reviews in Wexford, we decided upon here. Check in was swift and friendly, which was good start. Our room was a good size and clean, but nothing spectacular. The furniture had seen better days, I opened one of the cupboard doors and the handle came off in my hand. The bathroom was a good size but the fittings were cheap, old and out dated and the shower dripped constantly day and night. But what really turned our stay sour for me was that our room backed onto the vents for the restaurant, so if we opened our window or balcony door, we were met with an overwhelming smell of deep fat frying, which really turned my stomache. Therefore my husband and i had to endure sweltering room tempertures (no air con) or risk feeling constantly nauseous.
On a better note the leisure facilities were excellent, well staffed and cared for and i enjoyed a facial at the spa that just could not be faulted.

  • Liked — Good sized room and bathroom
  • Disliked — Nauseating smells from the kitchen. Location a little way out of town.

We have stayed in this hotel quite a few times now, having found it by accident. We had planned to stay in the Quality Hotel up the road, but as a result of being met by a rude and grumpy receptionist, decided not to bother. The Whitford is a brilliant place to stay, and what makes it so are a. the staff, who cannot do enough for you and b. the food, which is outstanding. The food in the restaurant is remarkable, the steak is the best I've tasted anywhere and the desserts divine. We also had a lunch in the bar one day and the standard was equally as good. The staff are really friendly and the rooms are great - really good value for money.

My husband and I spent two nights at this wonderful hotel recently. From the minute we arrived we were made feel at home. The reception staff were fantastic. We booked a superior deluxe room and it was just lovely - very big, impecably clean and it had a little patio area attached also. The bar is so warm and friendly. We ate there twice and the food was fabulous on both occassions (huge portions). We also ate in the beautiful restaurant for breakfast (freshly cooked to order - was gorgeous! The only complaint I have is that the fruit salad seved at breakfast was tasteless...) and also for an evening meal. The ambiance in the restaurant was so romantic and the food was out of this world. We also spent time in very clean leisure centre and I had the best massage I've ever had in the treatment rooms. But the one thing in my opinion that puts this hotel above the others (and I've stayed in many hotels around the world) is its staff. They are outstanding, always ready with a hello and a smile and nothing is too much for them. Congratulations to the Whitty family on a fantastic hotel. We will definitely be returning again and again.
