After a 5 hour drive we got a great welcome from the Reception staff in this city based hotel. The hotel seems to have been recently refurbished and it shows; the room was lovely and spacious with a full bathroom and there was plenty heat to keep my wife comfy.
The restaurant and bar had a modern theme, were both very comfortable and offered an extensive menu. We ate in the restaurant on the first night of our 2-night break and found the choice and quality of the the food excellent. Breakfast on each morning was the usual self service with a really good selection of good quality hot and quality food. My particular favourite was the homely brown, almost black, grain breads on offer.
The actual city of Waterford was a pleasant venue for weekend break with enough to see and, of course, a good selection of shops for my wife to browse.
The only negative point over the entire weekend was the amount of dog 'mess' on the pavements throughout the city.
