Stayed here recently, nice location, lovely grounds, lovely restaurant, nice lounge and lovely helpfull staff. It seemed just a bit shabby and tired, our room was so dark and dated it was depressing, thankfully we didn't spend much time in it. We were awoken at 7.30 am by piped music? We didn't eat here so can't comment on the food....

Visited this hotel for a one night stay, the room was okay, a bit dirty with spider webs and things like that, had dinner there, the food was average enough, my pork belly was overcooked and the starters were all poor, very high prices too. The waiting staff were good but cannot handle a busy night and don't pay much...

Lovely old world hotel. None of the noise of the overrun hotels. Beautiful grounds. Peace is the prevailing feeling. Breakfast - full Irish was delicious. Plus i was served a delicious sandwich with real ham and cheddar cheese when I got in last night. Great experience.

The staff were very helpful and I found my bedroom to be lovely. I was only there for one quick night but I would definitely stay again! Location is good for Waterford town and relatively easy to find.

I spent a couple of sunny days in Waterford, staying in Athenaeum House Hotel, a first-class service hotel on the other side of the river, facing Viking Triangle in Waterford. I was a little worried when I came to the reception first and I spotted nobody, except for a cat sleeping in a chair as I wanted a nice hotel...

Myself and my wife Sarah had our wedding at the Athenaeum House Hotel in April 2017. Weddings can be stressful things but the staff are complete professionals when it comes to weddings. The best thing we did was generally use the suppliers that the hotel recommends. From the solemiser to flowers they were all excellent and in sync with one...

My wife and I were touring Ireland, Scotland, and England for two weeks and recently stayed here as one of many facilities so we had plenty to compare against. Supposedly this was a 4 star hotel. The only positive was dinner at their restaurant, which was quite good and the restaurant staff were very attentive and nice. However, the room...

Brought our extended family here today for our daughters confirmation dinner. Honestly can't fault it. Food absolutely wonderful and the staff couldn't be nicer. Were lucky enough to have a private room for the meal but would have gladly sat in the restaurant..... has a great atmosphere. Will be back again!

This hotel has the potential to be a nice little boutique hotel. Unfortunately our room let the place down for me on our visit. Our room was described as a 'suite' - this may be what they refer to all the rooms as. The bed was comprised of 2 mattresses, side by side, both of which were both well past...

“One side of the hotel faces the car park, the other the garden, would advise choosing a room on the garden side in case of car park noise.”
