I've had to stay in Waterford a few times for work, and on a recent visit decided to stay in the Tower Hotel, as there was an excellent deal available. I think I paid around 30-35 for B&B. I arrived around evening time, and I was given a lovely big double room, but it emerged that the WIFI wasn't working - its vital that I have WIFI for work purposes... I was told that in some parts of the hotel the signal is poor. Not impressed!
Had an okay meal at the bar, not anything to do with the hotel but some crazy tried to start conversation, so had to leave for peace of mind (evening was getting progressively worse!). Then... at around 10pm I was awoken by the sound of live music downstairs - when I rang reception I was told that there was an event on in the ballroom, and that the music would be on for a couple of hours. It literally sounded like my room was right above the ballroom, and I asked to be moved. Grudgingly, a lady from the hotel brought me to a new room - sarcastically asking me if "I couldn't sleep" and throwing my bags into my new room definitely got the blood boiling! The "new" room was in the older section of the hotel, the bathroom and windows were mouldy and were not doubleglazed, so I was awoken a few times with people coming home (?) from nightclubs. I'm not a light sleeper, and it's not something I usually complain about!
So, overall, not a good experience in the Tower. Will happily pay an extra 20euro for one of the other 3star hotels in Waterford.
