“A most enjoyable stay”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 15, 2013

Spent a very comfortable overnight in the Rhu Glenn last weekend. There's plenty of free parking in the grounds of the hotel and free Wi-Fi throughout. Check-in and out were hassle-free. We got a lovely cosy room on the ground floor, which had everything supplied. There were extra pillows and a big thick blanket in case we needed them. The room, and indeed the hotel itself, were spotlessly clean. It was a bad night out, and rather than drive the 10 minutes or so to dine in Waterford city, we decided to eat in the hotel. This turned out to be a very good choice, with quite a varied menu, and excellent value at €16.95 per head for two courses (early bird). There is a three course option, but two was plenty for us. The restaurant wasn't open so we dined in the bar where there was a log fire burning, and we sank into the comfortable chairs while our meal was served to us. It was accompanied by a nice (and very reasonably priced) bottle of red wine, after which we relaxed in the bar for a while before returning to our room. The only downside of the room was the tiny television screen; it looked more like a VDU from a computer. However this didn't spoil our stay, which we thoroughly enjoyed. A large comfortable bed, a clean warm room and an undisturbed nights sleep and a good fresh-cooked breakfast before heading off the next morning - we couldn't ask for more. Contrary to other reviews we have read, we found the staff to be very helpful and friendly. This hotel is excellent value for money and not only would we recommend it, but we would definitely stay here again next time we are down in this neck of the woods.

Dear DubTwosome,

Thank you very much for your truly kind words about our hotel, we are delighted you enjoyrd your stay and meal. We always aim to provide the best service and value possible to each and every one of our customers. It is a delight to hear that you and your fellow guest were so relaxed in our bar, the log fire is certainly a popular choice during the cold nights!

We are sorry that the size of the television in your room may have hindered your stay, howver we are glad to see that you would be willing to return.

Thanking you yet again and we look forward to seeing you soon,
Daryl.

We were kindly invited to attend a wedding breakfast at the Rhu Glen and we must compliment the hotel n both the quality of the food and how they serverved almost 300 people so quickly shows how professional they are. we also stayed the night in one of the Guest bedrooms and although not particularly big it was more than suitable for the night. Breakfast was served hot and was again very good value. all in all a very pleasant stay.

I was here for a family function and have to say we were a bit disappointed. We had asked for an area in the bar to reserved for the party and when we arrived we found the tables occupied and some of the empty ones were filled with dirty dishes from previous customers.

The food that was served was good but no better than what you would get anywhere else. Standard fare really.

The real low point was when the birthday cake was brought out. We were given no warning so we could get ready for it which was disappointing.

Guests who stayed over night said the rooms were fine and the breakfast was good.

Stay here for two nights with my family, it is not a family friendly hotel, the staff was in no way friendly or helpfully in anyway at all to us wile we stay here, it's not a hotel for young people or young family, the breakfast on the first morning was terrible sec morning was ok, when we arrive we had lunch in the bar the food was only average in it, the rooms were clean put could do with a make over. Your five mins or so outside Waterford city so not a good place to come on a stag party or that. Over all I won't be going back there again.

Travelling with some old motorbikes & motorcyclists as old we were delighted with what we received here & the pleasantness of the staff was a lot to do with how this place took to my liking. A little odd the way the items you had are calculated,perhaps one price for a full breakfast with all the trimmings would be better. but other than that it was top class.

The only good thing about this place is the food can great value for money if you get it hot. I have no problem eating here but lately its short staffed and the food was just warm coming to table.

The hotel is generally very good, & the rooms are comfortable, Try to get a room that does not face the road or there is constant eeeeOOORRRmmm of traffic. The breakfast was not up to scratch. The bacon sausage & egg are pre-cooked & kept hot, so its pot luck if they are dry & overcooked or not.

Room Tip: Rooms that do not face the road are quieter
