Charming place. Lovely room with an awesome view! It was very convenient to walk around the village and also convenient for the Waterford Crystal tour. The restaurant was nice with a great made-to-order breakfast.

Sunday lunch. The Granville Sunday buffet is packed with the locals (lots of families) for their Sunday lunch. The entrance to the buffet is not the most logical as you have to pick up your food in a narrow one-way 'street' and then jostle your back back to your table via the queue again. It appears that everybody is used to it and they use the ocassion to admire the food and get their own appetites up !! On the menu HUGE plates of Turkey & Ham, Stuffed chicked, fish and chips, roast beef...comfort food to die for. All the plates piled high (literally) with the side dishes of mashed potato, carrots, etc etc and taken back to the tables by hungry and enthuastic eaters. Lots of Guiness and other delights in sight.. We all ate for Ireland! Tasty food and lots of it!

Stayed here 1 night while traveling through Ireland with another couple. First of all, I will say that the front desk staff was very nice and also helpful in giving directions to local sites. The hotel overall was attractive. However, the room we had was near a door that separated the stair/elevator hallway from the hallway to our room and boy was it noisy! We could hear every person that went through that door.....no matter what time of night or morning. Needless to say, we didn't get much sleep.

Room Tip: Ask for room away from main hall

Five of us visited Waterford for the day. Just thought i'd give a quick review of the the lovely lunch we had. This was in the bar area of the hotel and is self service. If you want big plates of tasty hot food at a great price then i would suggest you eat in the Granville Hotel when in Waterford.
I had salmon with a lovely cream sauce, plenty of vegatables only €11.00. Hubby had piles of roast beef, ( freshly cut in front of him,) roast potatoes and veg, stuffing etc again €11.00. Complimentary glasses of water are available to have with your meal.
Try and get in just before 1.00p.m as it gets very busy for lunch. We will return.

This hotel has a great location on the middle of the Quay and in the heart of Waterford City. The main shopping streets and shopping centre are a couple of minutes walk from the hotel. There are plenty of bars & restaurants around the hotel area. For those of you interested in the Waterford Crystal shop, it is also only a 10min walk from the hotel.

We got a lovely river facing room and were upgraded to a suite which was much appreciated. Staff were friendly and knowledgeable about the area and knew were to get a late drink! Complementary parking is available from 5pm - 11am directly across the road.

I would definately recommend this hotel for a break away or as a base to explore Waterford.

This is my fourth time in this hotel. Noise and heat are the main down sides. The rooms at the front of the hotel suffers from traffic noise and the rear rooms from noisy extraction / aircon fans. The bathroom extractors are easily heard from other rooms, not a recipe for a good nights sleep if you are used to silence.
The staff are professional some friendly some cold and quite aloof although they all execute their tasks well.
The rooms are very warm, but the noise means keeping the windows open is not possible for a light sleeper like myself. For some bizarre reason the heating was on in the corridoor this week (1 Aug) I reported it to the reception and was given some
cock and bull about it getting cold in them at night, in Aug when it is 20 deg!
We ate here on our first visit and was very disappointed so since have stuck to the excellent (if a little pricey) selection of eateries in Waterford. (L'atmosphere is great but need to book)
Head for breakfast at the wrong time and you will be fighting with the many coach tours that use the hotel, not a major problem but can extend breakfast a little too much. Free parking opposite the hotel requires an endorsement of the ticket by reception, this is only valid after 5pm - 11 AM though, arrive a few mins earlier or later and you get charged.
If you do not like complete silence and are happy to have tropical temperatures in the room it would be a great hotel with free internet, free parking and roomy well equipped rooms.

Many thanks for taking the time to write your review and we appreciate your kind comments regarding the Hotel. We do hope you continue to stay at The Granville and that you see we are trying to right some of the minus points you have made us aware of. The heat problem has been resolved and you’re so right it was “bizarre”. Perhaps the next time you stay you might give dining here another chance as we do get some great feed back on what we do. Also please make us aware on reserving your room that you wish to have the quietest room in the house and any other request you may have as we do wish to please.
