I am a singer here in Ireland and was asked by a promoter to do a show in the Haven hotel in Waterford.

I arrived at 6pm in the evening and instantly I got a warm feeling for the place with great life in the bar, the restaurant was full of people and the staff were very busy.

I introduced myself and was instantly shown to my room which was lovely and comfortable. The staff are so welcoming and helpful in this hotel. It's a family run hotel and by god they do it so, so well.

Before, during and after my gig I was treated so well by customers and staff which they were not under any obligation to to do .... There is a lovely warm, family orientated feel to this place and I will be returning with my wife and 2 kids next time.

I ordered breakfast to my room the following morning and it was beautiful, good fresh food and hot which is a rare thing ....

The location of Dunmore East is one of the most picturesque in Ireland and a sight to behold

As I said before I will most definitely be returning as a normal customer with my wife and kids as I have stayed in a lot of hotels in Ireland and on holidays across the world

But this is a little gem in beautiful surroundings and I thank Paul, Jason and staff for making me so welcome

Just back from short stay for a family event at Haven Hotel, what an amazing place full of old world charm and character, we were lucky enough to get a room with one of the most breathtaking views I have ever seen. The staff were brilliant so friendly and welcoming, Sharon looked after all our needs and you felt like part of this family that really know how look after their customers. The food is exceptional and after having the beef I can see why they are famous for it, after enjoying the great atmosphere in the bar I looked forward to a good breakfast it didn't disappoint delicious. Just a great place to go and stay I look forward to my next visit.

Just back from a bit of business in Dunmore east where I stayed at the Haven hotel and what a fantastic spot it is. The view from the room was fantastic overlooking the harbour and it was only a 5-10 minute walk into the main town of Dunmore east.

I had food in the bar of the hotel on the Saturday night that I was there and it was great. Best club sandwich I think that I've ever had and the staff were fantastic aswell. All very bubbly and friendly towards the guests. I'm really looking forward to getting back to the Haven hotel sometime, I just don't know when.

The staff at this uniquely great family run hotel are fantastic. 5 Star hotels should send their staff here to be trained in 1st Class customer care. A home away from home. Upon arriving we were greeted by the lovely Sharon who could not be nicer. All the staff were so friendly (Michelle thanks, you gave us great laughs). The food was delicious and we just had a blast. Thank you all so much. We are looking forward to going again and soon.
