Tower Hotel Waterford
Ranked #5 of 12 Hotels in Waterford
Reviewed February 17, 2013

Very good position in the city, parking is free and quite large. The rooms are spacious and modern. It was noisy one night due to rain but I forgot the window open. Breakfast is mainly Irish type but all was good. Appreciated also the gym, quite small but enough for a short travel. I will not change it next time.

Stayed: February 2013, traveled on business

Just returned from a wonderful two day stay at the Tower Hotel Waterford.

We got a great deal for two nights with two kids B&B and one meal.
We stayed valentines night and the following night.

We could not have asked for more from the hotel. Check in was fast and painless, family room was fine with great beds and kids loved the pool.

We decided to have our meal with the kids on valentines night in the Bistro and this was no problem for the hotel, on a night you would expect them to have you get your included meal in the bar.

The head waiter on duty valentines night and again the next morning was brilliant he knew exactly how to deal with the kids and they enjoyed him as we did. The likes of him are few and far between in the hotel industry and should be kept at all cost. ( sorry I did not get his name but I know he was not Irish & had no badge I could see )

The tower is so well located in the city you can walk everywhere and at the same time its easy to get away by car when needed.

Keep up the good work and we look forward to returning soon.

Stayed here for a night for the second time, right in the heart of Waterford city. the hotel is a 5 minute taxi ride from the train station and a 2 minute walk from the bus station. The hotel itself has a bar, leisure centre and a restaurant. Check in process was quick seen as we had arrived well before the regular check in time. Room was extremely spacious with two double beds and one single. For a Monday night, the bar was very lively taking into account that there were soccer matches on. Our one nights sleep at this hotel was very pleasant, but beware, if you're room is overlooking the main road, make sure that the window is closed because the traffic noise is unbearable. I'm not sure if the rooms have air conditioning throughout the summer. Everything is available at breakfast from cereals to a full Irish. Breakfast is served from 7:00 til 10:00 on weekdays and 7:00 til 11:00 during the weekend. I'd definitely recommend this hotel to anyone staying in Waterford city.

We booked in for a lovely relaxing weekend,unfortunately this is not the place to have one! We arrived in the afternoon and were very lucky to get a parking space at the back of the Hotel, parking is limited and restrictive! We entered at the back entrance bringing you into the leisure centre and then into Reception to be greeted by a very warm welcome, we duly entered the lift and went to drop our bags into the room. The window was open so it was nice and airy, however it was quite worn, shabby, dusty and dark. The double bed was quite smaller than usual. The other furniture needed a good clean and not just a dust, serious soap, water and elbow grease needed here! The bathroom floor needed to be washed throughly and properly also. Sizewise it was compact with no space between bath and toilet! We headed back down to the Leisure to be greeted by lovely staff, given towels to use and went into changing rooms.They are the usual, but don't expect any privacy as shower curtains don't fit cubicles and you are totally exposed! The pool, Jacuzzi, sauna and steam room are the usual but again in.need of TLC! Very strong chlorine used and I found my eyes watering so that spoiled it for us! We headed back to room, changed and headed down to the bar for a drink before dinner to be greeted by 2 very drunk middle aged ladies being escorted out of it! The bar is well staffed, no waiting but chairs are worn, tatty and stained.The bar was packed and seats at a premium. The barfood being served looked delicious! We went into the dining room and it is a little disjointed! The first bistro part seats about 25 or so and is modern, clean and really nice with lovely views, the second part is older worn, tired and needs TLC again! However the food is Sublime, limited choice, but beautifully cooked, presented and served! Even the house wine is excellent! What a pity the Catering Manager and Head Chef don't run the rest of this Hotel! Back in the bar for a night cap we saw 8/10 people falling, staggering around there. It is a shame the way the bar is run that these people were served until they fell off stools/chairs. It all seemed very normal to the staff and happened on both nights! Obviously the management do not care as long as the cash is flowing into their tills. As a result of this excess of alcohol sleep was a non event as people were roaming the corridors up to 3am both nights but Sat was particularly bad. These people were all middle aged, mainly women and it was reminiscent of being abroad on a drunken 18s Holiday! Unfortunately this is the clientele this hotel attracts! If its your thing then good for you, but for most it's not. So not suitable for a nice relaxing break! We left very very early the next day as I just wanted to get home to my nice bed, clean bathroom and away from the Circus! Just as a parting shot when we were exiting the back door, we had to step over various pools of VOMIT... Classy joint....NOT...

Room Tip: If you absolutely have to stay here try mid week! Food lovely as was the staff (cleaners exempt).

Attended a family wedding at this venue at the end of November 2012. Impressed from start to finish. From the welcome from the staff, to the personal attention shown to the bridal party and everyone present.
The decor was very festive as requested, and added to the splendour of the bridal party. The staff in the pre-reception area were great fun and the tea/coffee and mulled wine cheered the spirit and heated the bodies on a very cold day. For the reception, the food was cooked to perfection, and served steaming hot. The bedrooms were spacious and comfortable, and after a goods nights sleep, we were welcomed down to breakfast by some staff who served at the wedding reception. They were still smiling - a true sign of good staff.
Congratulations to all concerned

I recently attended a Gala night in The Tower Hotel and could not fault one thing about our stay. I have stayed here before and our bedroom on this occasion was much cosier and brighter than before with brand new furniture etc..The room was spotless with everything to hand including tea making facilities, not so common place anymore in Irish hotels! Our meal on the night was absolutely superb and surpassed my expectations, given the high number of diners (around 250) I was really taken aback by the quality of food and also the service - well done to all the junior staff who tended to this large crowd so efficiently and with a smile too! I would like inparticular to thank Deirdre, the events manager who catered so nicely for my few special requirements. Well done to the Tower hotel, I would not hesitate in returning for future events.
