This Bank Holiday weekend I have been to Waterford for the very first time. We received a warm welcome at the guesthouse. They gave us a nice room with 3 beds and our own bathroom. Perfectly done and clean. Too bad the breakfast was not included in the price. A plus is the kitchen in the basement including television and the cousy livingroom. There is also a garden! I recommend this place to annyone who is going to visit Waterford in the future. It's a short walk to the city centre, definitely worth a stay!

Absolutely loved it here! Nothing fancy but the rooms are clean; the entire house is very comfortable; perfect location, just a block off of the main road in Waterford, so not loud at all; lots of amenities; cheap laundry rates; great price; and Pat and Christopher were SO, so nice and very helpful. Seriously, wonderful place. A perfect mix of B&B and hostel. Such nice people, I really can't get over it. Thanks, Pat and Christopher!

We travelled down from Northern Ireland and was stuck for somewhere to stay.
My secretary made a hotel booking, but the completley messed it up! We looked up Guest Houses in Waterford, and this one by far had the best reviews. I called to see if they had any vacancies, and was pleasantly suprised at the pleasant and professional way my requests were dealt with. The man on the phone was actually interested and sympathetic to my plight. It turned out that it was the manager I was speaking to, vand nothing was too much trouble. We arrived late, but was warmly greeted and settled into our room in no time. After a long and frustrating day, all we wanted was a hot shower and to get some dinner.
Christopher reccomended a pub that served great food, reasonably priced, and was only a short walk away.
Breakfast the next morning set us up for the day, and was served by a lovely lady who couldn't do enough for us.
This was old fashioned hospitality the way it used to be years ago - very rare to find nowdays.
My company will definatly use Portree for any of our staff who come to Waterford in the future - the hotels have lost out to this Guest House!
Thank you to all at Portree - Long may you keep the old fashioned values.
