This hotel is in a beautiful setting and the communal areas are in good condition. The staff are very friendly but the rooms could do with an upgrade. Chipped paint, broken toilet seat, lights flickering on and off in the bathroom and tiny tv.

Just spent a night here recently. It's the 3rd. time to stay in this hotel. As before it was an enjoyable stay. The hotel itself is just outside the City in a quiet suburb. Staff were very helpful and the food was very enjoyable. Firstly let me say the room was fine, spacious airy and comfortable. But I have just... More

Stayed at the hotel a number of times and as always service and staff are amazing. Hotel rooms are spacious and always have plenty of parking. Room was clean personally not a fan of the blankets as I always like a good duvet on the bed. That's me being picky.

Very nice hotel. Spent one night it's hidden away from the bustle of the city of waterford. Staff very helpful very good three course meal offer very tasty. Breakfast was lovely great selection from full irish to porridge or pancakes. On the down side our room was a bit jaded lockers were worn and ceiling could do with re plastering.... More

I was very disappointed with the bedrooms. We had two (identical) rooms but one had a terrible smell coming from the bathroom. We were offered an alternative but the smell was the same. The bedding was atrocious, it was very old, shabby and creased - very old fashioned using sheets and blankets. The rooms were generally run down, in need... More

The reception manager was amazing! She was so pleasant and really nice. Upon arrival, we were able to check in early. Because it was the middle of our 10-day vacation, we were in need of doing some laundry. They provided us with a bag and had it clean and folded back to us with in two hours. We rented bikes...

This is the place to stay if you want five star service, five star food, and a five star view for a very affordable price. One of the best values and secrets in Waterford. The rooms are very high end and the premises feel like a 19th century palace. Highly Recommend.

We had afternoon tea which was delicious and great value. Carrie on reception was brilliant and Michelle was so friendly. Last time we stayed our room overlooked the rear... More

We stayed for 2 nights for a wedding, the room was ok, drapes torn a bit and the window was overlooking the car park so felt a bit exposed to anyone going to their car. The room was warm and the tv didn't work properly. I had my young child with me and found the shower kept turning its self... More
