“Great hotel, Great service.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 29, 2012

Stayed here on the 26th and 27th of July it was a last min two day break and I was not disappointed. The girls on reception Orla and Rachel were very, very helpful and polite could not fault their customer service. The food in the hotel is top notch as is the service. The location for the hotel is great everything is a few min's walk from it so it serves as a good base. The only draw backs to the hotel I could say and they are minor drawbacks is the charge for the wi-fi and we were located on the first floor, which overlooked the road and it was quite loud if we left the window open and the room got quite hot if the window was closed. This is the only drawback to a room on the first floor, I did not ask for a room change or bring it to the staff's attention as I found it a minor drawback, perhaps it may be different on the second or third floor but I could not fault the hotel in anyway, the rooms are spotless and a good size, the staff are friendly,helpful and polite. The car park is almost right across the road and only cost us €2.50 to park for the two days which was great value and helpful and we could keep an eye on it. The staff at Dooley's stand head and shoulders above some of the staff in other hotels I have stayed in around Ireland.

Stayed here for 3 nights recently whilst on a coach trip, accommodation was wonderful, room decent size, very clean. Food that we had every night was excellent, even though we were with a coach party we had a 3 course selection from hotel's main menu. Staff all very helpful, polite & smart. The hotel is situated right opposite the river & it is within easy walking distance of main shopping area & attractions. Would definitely recommend & use again when in the area.

Dooley Hotel is well situated and has friendly staff and good accommodations. For those with disabilities the arrange of floors and stairs may pose a problem. Hotel has WIFI but it is weak and did not reach our second floor room so I had to sit in the lobby to do business. Further, there is an outrageous charge for WIFI.

My boyfriend and I have stayed here on a number of occasions in the last few years and all I can say is wonderful friendly staff, fabulous spotless rooms, lovely breakfast and great value! My only complaint is that we won't be back to Dooley's in the near future! Would highly recommend.

Last week ( 15th July) We booked into this hotel at around 9pm - bags were taken to rooms and we went straight into the dining room. Two coaches of tired travellers were seated, service was excellent and the meal was not only a pleasure to eat but it was hot to. No hanging around I was truely amazed at the speed and efficiency the dining room operated. All meals were to an excellent standard and the breakfasts left nothing more to be desired.
The hotel is clean, the rooms spacious (with toiletries). Central location. I did not hear anything other than prise from fellow travellers.

On our recent tour of Ireland this was the most disappointing hotel we stayed in. The room was on the small side. The bathroom was very small and not up to the standards we encountered elsewhere. Our room was on the side of the hotel next to the street, and the traffic noise was noticeable. Wi-fi would only work in the hotel lobby and free wi-fi was limited to one hour. The restaurant was merely adequate.

Room Tip: Waterford is interesting, but there may be better choices for a hotel.
