This hotel has a four star rating, but it does not come up to that standard in our opinion. The hotel is entirely adequate but our room was a bit shabby, and the colour schemes are vivid to say the least, and it had a nylon shower curtain around the bath which is not four star standard.
The dinner was adequte but the breakfast was good; the bar area was good and the staff were all very helpful. The parking was also good which was important for us.

Room Tip: We had a room at the rear of the hotel which was quiet, the ones on the street side we were told wer...

Comfortable beds, good sized room. Friendly staff at reception who was more than helpful recommending things to see in Ireland and how to get there. Breakfast was amazing! Couldn't get Internet in our room so had to sit outside the room to organise the rest of our trip. Other than that small detail, very nice.

My girlfriend and I stayed here for one night during the day tripper festival in Waterford. Parking was a breeze no problems finding a space the staff were more than helpful and very friendly. Although check in wasn't until 3 we were allowed to check in at 2 by making a simple phone call. Although we didn't really spend much time in the hotel itself there seamed to bit a vibrant friendly atmosphere about the place. The rooms were very clean and breakfast the next morning was top notch and plenty of everything. All in all I would recommend this hotel to anyone and will definitely stay there again in the future.

I have stayed at the Fitzwilton on a few occasions and have always been more than satisfied. I especially like the location. Just a short walk along the quay will bring you into the city centre. The staff are very welcoming and helpful. Rooms are clean and modern. I didn't eat in the restaurant but the bar food is delicious and there is something to satisfy every palate. I would definitely stay here again.

This was my first time staying in the Fitzwilton Hotel but will certainly not be my last! I cannot speak highly enough of the hotel, The staff in particular were extremely helpful and pleasant., from every staff member I came across having a smile on their face to greet you to recommending places to see around the city. They made myself and my girlfriend feel like they cared we had chosen their hotel to stay in and also that we had a good time both in the hotel and when visiting their city. I found it a refreshing experience from the usual "just another person staying here" attitude you often come across in large hotels. The hotel itself is immaculate from the reception to the rooms and is superbly located with resident parking facility. You are only a few minutes walk away from the centre for shops and bars so no need to keep moving your car around. I would strongly recommend anyone staying in Waterford to stay at the Fitzwilton, We stayed there 2 nights, had drinks in the bar, 2 lunches and one dinner and not even one fault! a great hotel all around -Bryan Carty
