          Staff were extremely friendly and very helpful, hotel bar/cafe and restaurant were superb.

          Pre-Authorised my credit card, deducted the cost at checkout and have still held original cost of room on my credit card (basically charged twice until the money is released in 3/4 days!)

          The hotel was in an excellent position in Waterford. Our family room for 4 was very large, with excellent views out of the huge full length windows. Staff were pleasant and friendly.

          We were in town to celebrate my birthday. About 15 of our friends joined us. We all stayed at the Fitzwilton and it worked out great. Very good value for money, and the staff couldn't have been more helpful. I would stay there again.

          Parking is on a first-come-first-served basis, so it can be difficult on busy weekends.

          The staff were friendly and accommodating, the Hotel was clean and in good condition, and it had a good central location in Waterford.

          The stripe carpets outside the rooms are awful.

          Stayed here 2 nights....very enjoyable. Rooms were lovely and very comfortable. Staff were pleasant and mostly helpful altho we did request milk for tea in the room which was never sent up we had to get it from the cleaning trolley outside the room!

          Very little relaxation space other that the room or the bar... One small area seating area in reception which wasn't enough at the busy times. Everything else was nice.
