“Great Location”
Reviewed April 22, 2013

I stayed here with a group of friends for a 30th birthday party. We had a really enjoyable stay we checked in early and all our rooms were on the same floor which is just what we had wanted. The rooms were old style rooms, however they were all very clean and a good size which was great as there were 3 people to some rooms. It’s in an excellent location in the town centre, and the extra bonus was a Hotel car park at the back. We went to bar for a drink before we went out and it was really nice, all staff were lovely and so helpful & accommodating. Would recommend this Hotel to any of my friends for the location and the super value

Dear Gerry,
Thank you for taking the time to write your recent review. Last weekend, the Annual Waterford Festival Food was held here in Dungarvan. This resulted in our restaurant being extremely busy. In these situations we would suggest alternative food options to guests. Davitts Bar & Restaurant is in close proximity to the hotel. We have spoken in length with our team here regarding your comments. It is only be receiving these comments that we can act on them accordingly.
Management Team,
Lawlors Hotel.

Just back from a weekend at Lawlors
Staff were lovely and the bar is very nice
Paint peeling in bedrooms and corridors it is long overdue a face-lift
and new wallpaper would make a difference to bedrooms.The carpet was very dirty.
Breakfast is only ok half the toast was burnt and the white ceramic
tea pot was old and chipped and the handle had large crack on it

Room Tip: 3 floor has sea views

Arrived without reservations and was presented with different offers to accommodate our need for two rooms. From the moment of walking in, we were greeted with a smile and professional presence surrounded by surprisingly rich surroundings (the outside facade hides the interior charm). Rooms had good space (not bumping furniture all the time) albeit a bit dated...then again, it added to the character. Still, they were clean and well serviced, which is really the important piece. Restaurant served a well rounded fare with everyone at the table pleased with their meal. The pub area is fantastic, with local musicians playing against well prepared cocktails or perfect pints (our evening's music was provided by a family, including some younger members, that was fantastic, friendly and engaging).
Travelers should note that on the room floors hallway lights are motion sensitive - so there is a 1-2 second delay between exiting room or lift and having functional vision. You get used to it.
During our stay it was quite cold (0-2C) but the heating system did well to keep up. The heavy duvets also kept us warm and cozy at night.
Location is great and central to launch wandering through the local shops. Plenty of free parking.

Room Tip: Not sure how the lower floors are, but the 3rd floor was nice and quiet.

My son and his best friend stayed here easter Saturday night. The room they were allocated had peeling wallpaper and a non-flushing toilet. It was very cold. When they asked for another room the one they were given was no improvement. Seriously in need of a face-lift and refurbishment. They had booked in for two nights but only could tolerate staying one night only.

Room Tip: Recommend not staying at all

Dear Parkers01
With reference to your recent review, we would have appreciated if your son himself had written the review as officially persons who have stayed with us themselves would be in a position to write one. Having reviewed our records for that particular night / morning, we do not have an incident where a guest requested a room change. On checking the room in question, we cannot see any faults with the wallpaper or the toilet. When the guests came to reception to depart, no comment was made to the receptionist. We therefore were not in position to know of any issues.

Stayed before and room can make a difference. Good room but no heat in bathroom therefore it was freezing! Put pillow below at bottom of room to to stop draught, left bathroom door open to spread the heat for morning shower. Consequently room cold at 6:30am before heating came on, cool an hour later.
The shower was odd with a u- shaped curtain that almost did its job.
Room and bathroom very clean and comfortable in better weather would be good.
Staff all except breakfast room were rushed and racing to next task.
For the price pretty decent but would not take a lot to make it very good.

Dear X70MJS

Thank you for taking the time to write your review. We appreciate your comments regarding heating in our bathrooms. However the month of March was the coldest month on record in Ireland. During this extremely cold snap we endeavoured to maintain a good level of heating for our guests.
