I booked this place on line as the house I was born in was in the same street. Thank heavens I only booked one night. The front entrance and lobby need a spruce up, very unappealing when you arrive. The young fellow on the desk was courteous but not friendly. My room on the second floor was like the rest... More

A great place to stay. Spotless rooms, basic but what do you need other than a bed and bathroom? Staff very friendly with a good selection for breakfast. We have stayed a few times now and would always book again when in Waterford. A special thanks to Cathy.😊

I came here on a business trip and I was not impressed. The rooms were dirty. The toilet was faulty and noisy, with a cracked seat. Visible dirt on the two drinking glasses in the bathroom. Stains on the walls and carpets. Spiders and cobwebs on the windowsill. For "hygiene reasons" you aren't allowed to eat in the rooms? Or... More

Room was basic but clean (bedding could have been changed more often). Location is very central (5 min walk to main areas and 25 or so to waterfront). Free parking was very helpful and I enjoyed having a pub on the premises for the end-of-day Guinness! They do provide a breakfast however I cannot comment as I'm not a breakfast... More
