Good modern hotel, convenient location

Pros: General attentiveness and responsiveness of staff: there was a minor issue with the toilet flush one morning, and they had it sorted within an hour.
Cons: The bar snacks were generally excellent, but the croutons on our Cesar salad were soft. This could be addressed easily by the kitchen, I would think.
Location: Very central location in easy walking distance of the historic areas, and close to the main road (N25) in and out of the city. Do the Crystal tour.
Stayed three nights as a base to explore the south coast of Ireland, and we can recommend it from the point of view of tourists. The room was clean and had everything, the staff were helpful and pleasant, the location was central but made it easy to drive out of town. If we wanted to visit Waterford again we wouldn't hesitate to go back. One downside: as a disabled traveller, I had asked for an accessible room and this was provided straightforwardly, but I would point out that the toilet seat was inconveniently high. I am 160 cm tall, which is short for an adult man, but not for a child or a woman, especially an older woman who is more likely to be disabled, and I had difficulty using it: my feet didn't come near to touching the floor.

A ''business trip'' with family

The hotel is located in the city center, arrived very late and managed to get the last parking space available. The room was big (familty) but the double bed a bit too small and bed pretty soft: it also did not feel really properly cleaned (or maybe a bit outdated ?). Breakfast was good.

One night stay over

The hotel is ideally located close to the city and it's good value for money. The staff is very nice. I'm the down side, the car park is extremely tiny and only fits a few cars so forget it for late check-ins. Besides there are pillars in the middle of the way making it quite tricky to drive through. There's a handy multi storey car park very near. It the hotel offers no discount or special price. The bathroom is equipped for people with disabilities so the sink is quite low which can be surprising!
