                    • 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.

                      The bathroom was a bit dated.

                    • Convenient location, nice decor and friendly, helpful staff in a relaxing. Room large and comfortable, bar served a great variety of cocktails and service was excellent. The breakfast was good and our dinner was lovely and cooked perfectly.

                      Television not very big and food poor.

                    • I liked the proximity to the city centre, good value and first impressions great location, lovely interior. The very friendly staff, comfy beds and plenty of seating and a big enough bar. The breakfast buffet was excellent.

                      Hotel is not worth 4 stars by any means.

                    • The location is superb, quiet Hotel just off the main street and the rooms are big and spacious and the staff very friendly. The bar is good.

                      Poor service, tv Reception very bad and the pillows weren't great.

                    • Great location friendly staff and excellent value. The price was good and service were very good, efficient and pleasant. Bedroom were all lovely, bar menu was better than the restaurants by far and the waiters were nice and accomadating.

                      Rotten little hotel and rooms near street are noisy.

                    • Location and comfortable bed, friendly atmosphere. Free parking under the building, great price and staff were lovely especially on reception very welcoming and helpfull. The rooms were clean and bar was pleasant. Breakfast had the usual buffet, dinner was wonderful.

                      Poor restaurant menu was not suitable for a long stay and the ceiling of bathroom was covered in black mouldy spots.

                    • 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.

                    • The location is good and Waterford Crystal is a nice tour to take. The staff are very friendly, rooms are modern and the restaurant is beautiful I recommend Booked a table as books out fast.

                      Public areas were not clean and the tv reception was poor. Bar was extremely dirty, the breakfast was disgusting.
