Stayed for one night on business. Rooms where clean and comfortable. Nice fluffy pillows and good bed. The hotel is just on the city limits but staff can order a taxi which is around 10 euro and 5-10 mins has you in the town. Breakfast was buffet style Irish breakfast and was fresh and plentiful.

The hotel was ok, food was ok. The location for the hotel wasn't great, as it was out of the city, you would have to drive, if you want to head into the city, no bus route outside the hotel. The room they gave us was beside the lift where you could hear everything, people were noisy going to their... More

Passing through waterford and stayed here for one night. Lovely clean hotel very friendly staff. Very reasonable price. Beautiful breakfast. Only fault was quilt on bed was too warm for time of year and there was no top sheet so when I threw back quilt then I was cold. Bedroom was very nice and spotlessly clean.
