“Good value and very friendly staff”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 23, 2011

We spent a long weekend here, touring around. Big airy room, clean and well up together.
Breakfast good, bar food excellent, receptionist extremely helpful. Bit out of town, so you need a car, plenty of parking. All in all good value.

We were at a conference in the hotel and stayed there for 2 nights.

Good points are that the breakfast was good, free newspaper in the morning, the room was clean and large with lots of plugs to charge phones, computer and technology. Free wifi is good too. The staff were very friendly and helpful. Forgot my razor and they had spares for twits like me who forget stuff.

The decor is a bit minimalist and first impressions were no so good. The hotel grew on us over the week end.

The real disadvantage was the location 4k out of town. taxi cost €10 into the city and €12 from the rank out to the hotel. This makes the accommodation a bit dear. Also the hotel is surrounded by car dealers and is just not good to have a pleasant walk.

The distance from the city is the big downside for this utilitarian hotel. Its not dear and we thought we got good value for our money.

Stayed at Ramada Viking Hotel, Cork Road, Waterford 18 - 21.10.11.
Was MOST impressed by Room, Food, Facilities etc and especially by the friendliness and attention to detail by all the Staff.
Unhesitatingly recommend stay there to anyone. Look especially at Rooms 1 - 117 for
quiet peace.

Room Tip: 1-117 especially quiet

Just thought i,d write about the food here,
the bar was really busy so we went to the restaurant and had the best fishcakes i,ve ever tasted with a sweet chilli and soy glaze. The staff were running all over the place, but the food stopped me from giving out. Pity the server couldn't spend more time with us but i suppose it wasn't her fault.Will probably stay again if we are in the area

We traveled to Waterford in July, 2011 during a week holiday in Ireland. Our stop in Waterford was to visit the House of Waterford Crystal factory, and we stayed the the Ramada Viking Hotel during our visit. The hotel was easy to find, and enabled an easy route to Waterford Crystal and the nearby downtown shops and pubs. The hotel was very nice, with courteous and helpful staff, and the room was nice and cozy. A very enjoyable stay in a beautiful city!

We arrived on a saturday night, found staff to be spot on, not the first time I have stayed here, 3rd I think, so knew what to expect.

Hotel is clean, never had any issue with staff, food was always ok for the price.

One thing I missed though was the lack of A/C in the room, it got very hot, then again it was one of the hotter nights in August.

Didnt have breakfast so cant comment.

All in all, on a Saturday night, it was €50+ cheaper than any other hotel in the city, a bit out, yes, but that didnt bother us due to the savings.

Will I be back, yep, unless the hotels in town come down in price alot.

Room Tip: Book online, save €10 over best rate they give on the phone

Just after having a so called breakfast in the Ramada-buffet style consisted of only 4 sausages left(cold may I add) some black pudding + scrambled egg! Chef once asked for breakfast only brought out rashers + fried eggs but too late-nothing else offered nor were we asked if we were ok for everything but we were still charged for full breakfast-won't be back-worst breakfast ever
