Although clean and the linen was nice and crisp and freshly laundered the whole place could do with a bit of decorating. Fine for an over night stay if you are not too fussy about the decor. Cheap and cheerful you get what you pay for with this place. Very friendly staff.

The staff is very friendly and allowing. The breakfast include in the price was very varied and fresh food. The room was clean and comfortable for the low price. The hostel is at 5 min walk of city centre, and you have the bus station and rail station just opposite at the hostel.
The personnel est amical et accueillant. The petit déjeuner inclus dans le prix de la chambre était varié et frais. Pour le prix, la chambre était propre et confortable. De plus, l'hôtel est a 5 min du centre ville a pied et juste en face de la station de bus et de train.

Not a nice place to stay. Very tatty, seedy looking from the outside too. There were 3 air fresheners in the room . Misled into booking by finding it on hotel booking websites. It is not a hotel, by any stretch of the imagination.

Room Tip: Avoid this B and B.

I was in Waterford on business and wanted something as inexpensive as possible. This was €39 for a single en suite - the same as the hostel down the road, but breakfast was included in the price at The Anchorage. First impressions - it was a bit run down, decor-wise but when I'm looking for budget accommodation decor isn't high on my list. It was clean, had TV, tea and coffee facilities, a hairdryer and soap and shower gel in the bathroom - I've stayed in a more expensive hotel in Waterford which didn't provide these! Towels were clean, and the bathroom had good powerful shower. I also got a warm welcome and a good breakfast.

One thing to be aware of - The Anchorage is on a busy road so it isn't the most peaceful location, but it's handy for the town and bus/rail connections.

Just got back from a rather interesting over nite stay at the Anchorage. Was awoken at 7am this morning by the sound of the bathroom fan. I was still in bed at this point but got up to check it out. To my surprise a strange man came out of my bathroom!!! he had been in the room sleeping also! He had been given a key to my room while i was inside asleep. Needless to say I swiftly evacuated him from the room and took his copy of the key. When I went down stair to convey my annoyance, the guy at reception was also quite amazed that there was a stranger sharing my room and he was very apologetic. Also just discovered that the mystery man had been in my bag, a t shirt and jumper are missing but I have been left with a strange black shirt of his as a replacement. All in all as you can imagine, Im not very impressed.

It was nothing special, but the room was comfortable enough and it was in a convenient location as well. The B&B is undergoing renovations, so I'm expecting in a year or so it will be much better. The host was extremely friendly and helpful. I cannot testify on the parking conditions on the place, as I took the train into Waterford, but walking from the station is an ease. The one problem I had was that overlooking my bed was a skylight which I could not figure out how to close for the life of me and in summer time in Ireland the sun comes up at four.
