Had a lovely relaxing week-end break at White,s.On our arrival the staff were excellent.Bedrooms were very comfortable and spotless clean. Bar food was very good and quite reasonable. Car Park cost just €3 per night which is really a good rate. Hotel is in the middle of town so it is easy to get around by foot.

Room Tip: Had interconnecting room as we had a wheelchair person with us. it worked great so a big thank you t...

Arrived and was greeted nicely. Had a swim and gym, facilities good but a little crowed with members especially in the gym. Pool facilities good, cleanliness of pool area excellent but changing rooms disappointing probably down to gym traffic.
Went for a pint bar staff very friendly, bar food really bad would honestly do better myself! Drink and Food OVERPRICED. there is only so much a smile can do.

The room a little cold and uncomfortable with tv that took some figuring out with poor reception and sound. Carpet stained!

Location excellent in town centre with really good food and attractions within walking distance.

All in all plesent experience but poor value for money.

We were celebrating our 10th wedding anniversary and picked this hotel on recommendation from a friend in the hotel business. On arrival the staff were friendly and welcoming. The bedroom was spacious and spotlessly clean. We even had a lovely displayed gift of truffles and strawberries on arrival for our anniversary. Dinner was good (not excellent but good value for money) but I would say the dining room is not very romantic or intimate! There was music in the bar which led to a really chilled out atmosphere. Leisure centre was clean, plenty of showers, proper hair dryers and lockers. We didn't book a spa treatment but they seem reasonably priced! This hotel is so central, perfect for exploring the town, although Wexford town was a bit disappointing. We like to browse shops, nice cafes, parks etc all of which were pretty poor. Although we did stumble across a little gem the green acres museum, shop and restaurant. On our second night we ate in the Green Acres restaurant which was excellent. Highly recommend it if you are in the town!

Room Tip: Room 225 had a bit of a view which I imagine is hard to get given its in the middle of a town

Stayed for a 2 nights break for a rest and that is what we got. From the moment we walked in we were made feel welcome. All the staff were very nice. Bar food was good and at good prices too. I would recommend a visit to the Spa, i was never so relaxed. We were very happy with our stay and we will be back for another.

Well where do I begin, this hotel is outstanding. Stayed here for 3 nights and was actually my second time staying in the hotel and can't fault it all. Very friendly staff and great food. The main attraction point for me is the excellent location and great leisure/spa. Yes you do have to pay a 3e overnight parking fee, but I don't mind that cause you only spend that in a taxi anyway if you were staying outside the town. Will be returning for sure again sometime soon.

As a keen swimmer, I always travel with my costume and googles - just in case! This strategy was rewarded when I arrived at this hotel. Our room wasn't ready (it was only midday) but we were told we were welcome to use the leisure facilities. Fantastic! The 20m pool was virtually empty (there was a separate children's pool) and a lane had been set up which made it easy to swim laps. We then used the steam room and jacuzzi. After a fabulous dinner and a night at the Wexford opera (walking distance even with heels) we had a great nights sleep in a comfortable bed and returned to the pool when it opened the next morning. Breakfast was inclusive and was very good. The staff were incredibly friendly and helpful and parking was included. If you're looking to stay in a good quality hotel in a good location and pay hotel prices, then this ticks all the boxes. Parking was also included.

Room Tip: It seems that it is difficult to get wi fi in some areas of the hotel. If you want wi fi in your ro...

We were disappointed with the service at dinner..the hotel was fully booked so we can appreciate the few minor mistakes...dinner took nearly two and a half hours...the food was pretty nice..the hazelnut meringue was a bit too sweet...had to ask two or three times for our wine order... The side portion of chips arrived when our meal was over...this however did not put us off..the staff were "up to their eyes"... It would have tested anyone....we didn't have to pay for one glass of wine or the chips..this was a kind gesture...there was a lovely busy atmosphere in the hotel...a great buzz....the thermal suite and spa were fantastic...brilliant value...lovely experience...we went for lunch in the bar after we checked out...we were v.disappointed with the quality of food...v slow also...two of us opted for a stir fry...some of the ingredients seemed like they were out of a can or jar..not v.pleasant at all...the chicken wasn't cooked fresh...it had been cooked earlier...the portions were massive...the chef was v.nice..it was the choice of ingredients made available to him.. In general we were not put off...the beds were sooo comfortable..we would have liked to have stayed a second night....we would eat in the terrace restaurant again but maybe not in the bar.....we really do like this hotel..great location..friendly staff...

Room Tip: Rooms near the spa are quiet and spacious
