I had booked a weekend at Waterford Castle in the presidential suit so I could propose to my girlfriend as a suprise, and it was a suprise! The room was freezing cold. The hotel had given us a dimplex electric heater which was constantly turned off by the staff, not very 5 star. Before I booking I enquired with the hotel if any large groups would be staying and I was assured that their wasn't. I went down stairs for my meal in the evening only to find a full blow murder mistery night was taking place. We were shunted into another cold anti room along with some other guests and served our food . Some of the bar staff are very poorly trained and we were left waiting for drinks for a considerable period of time. The hotel has undergone a "beige" makeover and as a result its lost a lot of its charictor. We complained to the manager and he offerd us an aditional nights stay, once bitten twice shy. In my humble opinion its one of the cheeper castle hotles for a good reason. I should have dug deeper into my pockets on such a special occasion.
