  • Older travelers

    Very pleasent restaurant- at 25 euros for 3 courses good value(for Ireland)Had to change room- mainly because they gave a double bed instead of a twin. The first room needed some updating - but acceptable.

    Like most Hotels the decor was wanting-although it was being decoracted on the exterior when we arrived

  • Older travelers

    The location is lovely, a rural setting, outside Waterford City with easy access to all amenities. It overlooks the river, it is spacious and away from busy roads, but very easy to find. All the staff were very professional and discrete.

    The parking facilities are limited and when there is a function you may need to park on the road. It is a country house hotel which is a little tired and needs updating. When people congregate on the terrace [for a cigarette] it is very noisey if your bedroom overlooks this area, and can disturb your sleep if you have an early night.

    The quietness of the faciltiy and atmosphere of relaxation created. Good parking was available and staff accomodated personal dietary requess

    The bathroom could have been cleaner.

    We liked the accommodation, the friendliness of the staff, good dinner and breakfast andconsidered it good value for this standard of hotel..

  • Group of friends

    Very friendly, helpful staff. Quiet hotel with nice garden and friendly atmosphere yet 5 minute drive to city centre. Lovely evening meal.

    Shower curtain rather than glass panel ensured bathroom floor was soaked. Breakfast cold buffet bar was constantly empty and when stocked up, the staff only brought out 3-4 slices of whatever was asked for causing constant queues. (looked like a cost saving measure gone mad). Breakfast charge of €11 too dear if buffet is not well stocked. Service very slow for cooked breakfast (45 mins).

    nice room and excellent food

    a little carelessness in servicing the rooms. eg no hand towels or fresh glasses left on one morning

    Staff were friendly and helpful and room was very nice and clean.

    I'd have to say the full Irish breakfast wasn't great, not very nice.

  • Older travelers

    Hotel was quiet and relaxed, not large and impersonal. Saturday evening dinner in the dining room - there was a singer/guitarist, very nice touch.

    The instructions on the web site of how to get to the hotel were very misleading. We were fortunate to meet a member of the Garda who read the instructions and laughed as it did not mention the new roads that had been opened. He told us how to find the hotel and from his excellent instructions we drove straight there. Plus the phone number given for contacting the hotel was the Manor Group which was closed for the Bank Holiday Weekend. I managed to find the number through directory enquiries and spoke to the hotel . the staff, particularly reception , were marvellous as we arrived late. They did not have any record of our booking on their system, but gave us a suite at no extra charge. We had a delicious dinner and an excellent brea

    I liked the friendly relaxed atmosphere and the care & attention of the staff. I was on my own and would certainly recommend this hotel to any woman travelling alone. The location is very convenient for town & beaches and the setting is beautiful.

    I did not think to check in advance if I had a non-smoking room & there was certainly a smell of stale cigarette

    The breakfast is excellent (made by a french chef!!!). Reallly quiet place. Room really nice.

    Far from city center (but really quiet). Tv screen really small (well we didn't really care but for information...)

  • Older travelers
    7.8

    Nice relaxing hotel suitable for people who want to get away from it all but still in walking distance of Waterford City

  • Older travelers
    7.0

    Small enough for the personal touch. Friendly staff. Excellent breakfast. Bedroom and public rooms tastefully furnished. Useful fridge in room.

    Not a pleasant walk into the city. Dust in room on arrival. Toiletries not replenished during two night stay. Room had not been serviced by 4 pm on our second day.
