Myself and my wife had a weekend away without kids here. Having stayed in hotels all over Ireland for work I am a fan of hotels which offer something different with a personal touch. This is one such hotel, informal, quiet, a bit like a country guesthouse. We ate in the restaurant (Zaks) on our first night and the food...

The staff couldn't have been more helpful - we particularly liked the young girl on reception and the girl who served us breakfast. Food was delicious and cooked to order. Our bedrooms had great views of the gardens. We couldn't believe the weather was so good that we were sitting out on the hotel terrace (in short sleeves) with a...

We had my mam's birthday party here last night! The Atheneum is one of my favorite boutique hotels tucked away 5 mins from the bridge in Waterford. The new menu is very creative and delicious, our group varied from 8 years of age to 80 and everyone got something to suit. A funky hotel, friendly and professional staff and the...

I stayed here for two nights with my husband and two young daughters. We had a large double room with the addition of two camp beds for the girls. Yet there was still plenty of space in the room. The staff were very friendly and professional. The food was lovely. Location wise you are a little out of the town...

Dear Scarletbee Thanks for your very kind review - my team and I are delighted that you enjoyed your birthday weekend and your family were well looked after.

Very nice, homey hotel in a quiet residential area just a few minutes drive from central Waterford. The grounds, architecture, and decor were very pleasant. I particularly liked the library with comfortable chairs and view. Staff was very friendly, too. We didn't have the extra cost breakfast, but the restaurant menu looked great, which is good because there aren't a...

Stayed here for 1 night with my husband for our wedding anniversary. Stayed in an artist themed room. Rooms are a good size, beds very comfortable. It did get a bit too warm on the room but an open window sorted that. Excellent showers. The restaurant was amazing. We had dinner included in a Friday night package, it wasn't explained...
