      • Good location, great stay and the staff were friendly and helpful. Room was very comfortable and the most important meal of the day was the same every morning.

        Hotel is not worth 4 stars by any means.

      • Great location in Waterford, easily accessible by the bus station and several really good restaurants also are nearby. Hotel is nice, modern enough, staff are pleasant and helpful, the TV in the sitting room is huge and the couches very comfy.

        Bit over priced for large window views of dack of houses and small car park. Service poor, free bottled water and expensive bar. Dirty sheets not changed, very little in the way of soap and breakfast choice could of been better.
