The room was fine for the price I paid. However there was no menu or reading material in the room. The main issue I had with my stay was the restaurant. Unnecessarily expensive, to the point where I was expecting perfection. This was not the case. I had a three course meal. Starter was the chicken parfait which was nice...

We went to a wedding here last year. The grounds are beautiful. The food was lovely. Only complaint was the bar was under stacked and understaffed. Prices were way to high. Not far from Waterford city in short taxi ride.

Cheap and clean but the room we stayed in was run down, there were cracks in the ceilings and tiles in the bathroom looked like they were coming away. Its a cheap hotel which is good and the service was fine but the worst thing about it are the beds. They were very very uncomfortable and I couldn't sleep, I...

This is a lovely place for a Christmas Eve lunch as it goes on all day. This always is a line in the sand time as from this lunch on I relax into Christmas- all is done by then- meals are usually lovel, party atmosphere and no cooking for me😀

Well I have stayed here a good few time and now having a wedding breakfast-about 100 plus guests. To be honest it's too many for the hotel to cope the with. The bar is too small, not enough staff for service. The steak was over cooked as was the fish, the soup was bland and the vegetables nearing raw. If...

Ok, I shouldn't really be writing this review because now everyone will want to come and stay and my piece of heaven will be no more...... The Athenaeum Hotel.... AT THE NAY EE UM is one of Irelands hidden gems. It is family owned and it feels like home the moment you walk through the door. It has charm, elegance...

Situated in a very pretty, quiet location Athenaeum House was a restful place to stay. Our room was very nice and clean. The staff was extremely helpful also. I would highly recommend staying here while visiting Waterford.

Stayed for one night and had two rooms. Both rooms had badly stained bed linen and one had slightly torn bed linen. The cupboards in my room was broken and did not close, the dressing table/desk in both rooms was badly chipped and stained. The taps in one bathroom were broken in the other the bath plug was missing and...

Staff was very nice, waitresses were fantastic. It was rated 4 star on Hotel.com, but we would rate it 3 star. Had very nice dinners and breakfast selection. In fact the cheesecake was 5 star, and I am very selective. The rooms, beds and covers are old and worn and we expected better from a 4 star hotel, thus we...

Ten out of ten for friendly welcoming staff and great food. Although the beds were comfortable, the bed linen and bedspreads had seen better days, with those replaced and a general bit of renovation in the bedroom and bathroom areas this hotel would have earned five stars from me.
