Further in our stay on 20th Sept-22nd Sept big thumbs up to the staff at the hotel. We booked to do the Waterford greenway & arrived with our bicycles but the lock up was being used by the builders to store paint etc. Not wanting to leave them where they maybe damaged, Bruno on reception immediately offered to store them in a small room in the hotel. The staff are super friendly & the food was excellent. Even do the hotel is under going renovation there was no noise or disruption to our stay. This is a great location for the greenway only a ten minute cycle to the start of the greenway or less than ten minute drive to Waterford city to do some exploring.

We stayed at the Viking for a two nights while we cycled the Waterford Greenway and explored the surrounding area. The "Greenway Package" was excellent value and included breakfast, two course dinner and a very substantial packed lunch, including gluten free options. The food was delicious and the restaurant and bar service warm and friendly. The front of house staff were really helpful and made practical suggestions for our cycle route. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and will definitely return to the Viking.

I stayed at the Viking Hotel for two nights last week using their 'Greenway' Package. This is the first hotel that I've ever known to actively promote cycling as part of a recreational visit. I'm not saying they don't exist at other locations around the country, I just haven't seen any. My stay included 2 nights B&B, 1 evening meal, a pack lunch on the day of cycling and secure bike storage. Anyone who is a keen cyclist like myself will not be particularly interested in luxury hotels. I'm happy with a clean room, a comfortable bed, hot showers, decent food and a working tv. All of these factors were present during my stay. The breakfast and evening meal menus were perhaps a little limited but had enough choice to keep me happy. The chicken wings were especially delicious. The breakfast menu was quite good and fuelled me up for the long cycle ahead. The picnic/pack lunch given to me is well thought out. By the end of the first leg of my cycle I was craving fluids to rehydrate. The lunch had fruit pieces in juice, a yoghurt, a carton of orange juice an apple and an orange. The sandwich was made up of Chicken and Ham on brown bread. Enough to give me the energy for the return leg from Dungarvan to Waterford. I only stopped once to buy some isotonic drinks from a shop in Kilmacthomas. The Viking Hotel is ideally located on the edge of the city in an industrial area. Access to the hotel is easy by car as it is on the outer ring road and close to the motorways. For cyclists, there is a wide cycle path immediately outside the hotel and this runs directly to the Greenway Carpark where the cycle path to Dungarvan begins. Its all so easy. There is also a Halfords store across from the hotel for any last minute cycling needs. I enjoyed my stay at the Viking Hotel and I would recommend it for anyone. The hotel was quiet at night and I slept well on both nights. The only minor complaint that I had was that there was an extractor fan outside my window which fortunately turned off at approx 11p,m. Other than that I have no complaints. I would hope to see other hotels around the country offer the same deals for cyclists if t here is a greenway near by. C. Coyle

Room Tip: Ask for a room facing towards the front of the VW garage next door as there are no extractor fans...

Hello Chris, thank you for taking the time to write such a detail account of your visit to Waterford, in 2017 the team decided the shed should become 'the hub' to look after the increasing visitors to the Waterford Greenway and this initiative has really paid off. 'The Hub' is a secure space which gives peace of mind to our guests and our packed lunches always go down a treat. On your next adventure please contact us directly and we will ensure your room allocation is suitable and you get a return guest rate to enjoy. We look forward to meeting you again at some point in the future. Kind regards Karen

We are just back from a lovely relaxing weekend at the Viking Hotel. Our stay was fantastic. The staff were very friendly and obliging. We ate in the restaurant on Friday evening and food was tasty and reasonably priced, breakfast on both mornings was really good too. We would highly recommend a stay here. Thanks guys 👍

Stayed here for my boyfriends birthday as we were doing the Waterford Greenway cycle. When we arrived we didn't get a warm welcome, the lady behind the desk didn't seem interested, there was no conversation. We weren't asked how we were, or if we were there for an occasion etc. The room was very basic but it was clean! Over the course of dinner we ordered 2 bottles of wine and each time the waitress brought them down she just left the bottle on the table and walked off straight away. Normally the waitress opens the bottle or even pours some of the wine for you. At the end of the meal we weren't asked if we would like desert, tea or coffee. The meal was paid for prior to our stay but they tried to charge us again. When it was brought to their attention that we had already paid they said they were waiting to hear back from reception and that they had a new system. They then gave us the new bill for just the wines. This should have been organised before giving us the first bill as we could have ended up paying twice. Wouldn't recommend anyone to stay here.
