A group of us stayed here for one night and was really really impressed by first impressions. From entering the centrally located hotel I was greeted by warm and friendly staff. I had asked the fellow on the desk about an event I was to attend the next morning and right away he printed me out a map and showed...

Checked in late from a tiring day. Hotel is in a nice central area of town. Was a bit disappointed that had to ask where my room or when breakfast was served on check in. Anyway, room was a little dated but clean and spacious. My real gripe was with breakfast. I have never had worse service or waited so...

I decided to stay here after staying at several other hotels in Waterford. The Dooley's had the best reviews in the price range for work so I arrived with optimism. The building looks ok from the outside and reception is nice enough. However once you leave reception you begin to see that this hotel is in need of some TLC....

Had a sad family occasion and visited the restaurant in the Hotel this week. It had been a very long time since I last tried it. Food was from a set simple menu for lunch and was excellent. Both fish and chicken dishes were served in a very attractive manner and vegetables were excellent, not overcooked and all was hot....
