“Friendly and comfortable”
Reviewed January 17, 2013

Stayed there for a couple of nights just before New Year. Despite the fact that it was packed with hotel and wedding guests, the service was great (and friendly). Comfortable room, nice bar and central location (although good luck working out the cheapest of the car parks across the road!).

Room Tip: If you want a view, it has to be at the front. Ours was at the back but made no difference to the st...

The Granville Hotel is situated on Meaghes Quay and is easily accessible from the N25. It is about 15 minutes from Waterford airport and 1 1/2 hours from Cork airport. A traditional building which has been established for many years. It is in close proximity to locals shops, pubs and other restaurants including the Waterford Crystal workshop.

Reception is manned 24 hours and the staff are very welcoming, professional and courteous. Check in is after 2pm and check out before noon. Rooms are accessed via a single lift or stairs. The main bar area and restaurant are adjacent to the lobby. The bar serves a wide selection of hot / cold food and drinks at reasonable prices. The service is excellent and the staff can't do enough for you.

The restaurant offers a high standard of cuisine and wide choice of wines. Again the service is excellent. Breakfast is also served in the restaurant as a self service buffet style and table service for hot food.

Rooms are tastefully decorated in a traditional style in keeping with the hotel. They are well maintained. Access is via a digital key card which is also used to control the lights in the room. Room facilities include: coffee / tea making tray, trouser press, free WIFI, satelite TV, hairdryer and complimentary toiletries. A same day laundry service and use of iron / ironing board is available.

I have stayed at this hotel many times on business and it is always a pleasure to return.
If you are visiting Waterford and want excellent service with a warm Irish welcome, I would recommend this hotel.

Stayed at the Granville Hotel for New Year with friends had a wonderful few days there,the quality of food was really good and in particular the service. The Gala New years evening was let down by the entertainment which was really bad, but apart from that we had a good time.

Thank you for taking the time to write your review. We really appreciate your feed back. We are grateful for your positive comments and I am sorry about the entertainment on New Years Eve. Not making an excuse but the person we had booked and who has entertained very well over the last number of New Years Eve took ill and was sadly unable to perform. We have taken your comments on board when looking at next New Years Eve.

Yesterday while in Waterford, my friend and I said we would try the Granville for lunch. There was a huge crowd there due to Graduations in WIT but despite the queue, we hung on in there and waited. What struck me was the friendliness and efficiency of the staff, on what, must have a nightmare day. In the carvery, the food was excellent and my lamb was delicious. The tables were cleared immediately, making room for the next customer. Well done on keeping the standard high on a very busy day.

The hotel is family run and when we stayed was packed (late December )
I stayed here before so always try get a room overlooking front of hotels. Other rooms not as nice. Food is standard bar food - roasts spuds cabbage etc in monstrous portions. I suspect hotel does a lot of golden oldie packages from what we saw. Band playing in bar was Margo/joe Dolan/big tom vintage. Breakfast in the tapestry room was like something from 50's. All in all everything is fine, it's clean but it's catering to a certain market...

Many thanks for taking the time to write your review. Your comments are appreciated and I am glad that all-in all everything was fine. We try to cater to a mixed market and would certainly look forward to your comments when you next visit the hotel. Please ask to be shown some of our back rooms as we have recently completed refurbishment. We have only used the Tapestry twice for breakfast recently and it was an overflow to our main restaurant. We receive great comments about our breakfast but before I use it again for breakfast I will consider your comments and for this I am grateful.

Although this place is local to me a feel I have to write this short review as the service and staff is excellent. Recently awarded their 4th star I dropped in for lunch and was extremely impressed by the quality of food and in particular the service. The bar and eating area is full of old world charm so if your in the area drop in.

Our second night in Ireland was spent at the Granville Hotel in Waterford. We booked the bed and breakfast for one night. This is a gorgeous hotel. The staff was wonderful, very friendly, courteous and helpful. Our room was clean and the beds were very comfortable! We closed the window due to vehicle noise from street but a fan was provided in the room for air movement. Nice touch.

The bar was beautiful and several people were coming in for dinner both there and at the main restaurant. I should have noted this and stayed for dinner there but ventured out instead. Needless to say, the the breakfast I experienced at the hotel the following morning was the best. The chef just added his version eggs Benedict to the menu and they were the most fabulous, mouthwatering that I have ever had. His sauce was spectacular and he serves it over a wonderfully moist yeast or potato roll. Eggs Benedict, step aside this Irish version is FABULOUS!

I highly recommend a stay at the granville, steps from shopping, Waterford crystal, overlooks the warf, close to everywhere one would want to be. My only regret is that we didn't stay more nights!

Room Tip: Noise from cars but completely quiet with window closed or chose room facing the back of the hotel...

Perhaps the next time you will be able to stay more than one night. It is lovely for all of us to read what you had to say and that our new addition to the breakfast menu Eggs Benedict Waterford style was a big hit. We are very grateful for your recommendation.
