The room was very spacious and clean. Since we were a family of four, the staff allowed us to put our suitcases in the adjoining room since there were no guests staying the room at the time to spread out a bit and have more storage which was very nice of them. It helped a lot the next morning when...

We did not like the place. The shower was mouldy, the interior quite used-up, the WiFi connection in our room very poor and it was relatively expensive as it did not even include breakfast. We have been in really pretty B&Bs for the same price including breakfast. Strange enough, it was listed under B&Bs in booking.com.

Sorry you didn't like our place. On the price - we're generally one of the cheapest places in Waterford. (And as regards there being cheaper elsewhere, you'll find that there aren't many city B&B's cheaper than us anywhere in the country - since you stayed on a Saturday night in August the price is slightly higher but I'm sure you'd...

Very friendly staff, nice rooms and good location. Breakfast is not included but choice between continental and irish and there is plenty. The common area is small but cosy. There is a kitchen but we didn't use it. The only thing that could be better is the noise... You can hear the people in their rooms around you and the...

I had booked to stay here for a Friday and Saturday night to attend a wedding. The morning of the Friday I managed to injure myself and had to spend the day talking to doctors instead of travelling and checking in. The staff were very understanding and modified the booking for me despite being technically outside the limit to cancel...

I had been in Portree for a few days and the hostel is really nice. The staff are great and friendly. I had been in a single room, with bathroom and a small television in the room. Also the hostel is near the bus station and very easy to find. In conclusion, I really recomend it.

Let me begin with the most positive aspect: the staff. The owner actually cares about guests and always tries to fulfill their wishes. The staff are young people from all over the world, I could ask them anything, they are lovely and they even asked me to go out with them in the evenings, we had a lot of great...

The owners and staff were extremely nice, so I feel bad giving them a negative review, but I was quite disappointed in the condition of the dorm room and the bathrooms. The wallpaper was faded, stained and ripped in many places. There was mildew on the floorboards of the wall and a large one on unclean curtains. It smelled strongly...

Very sorry to hear you didn't enjoy your stay. I can only apologise if you found mildew on the skirting boards and that the toilets ran out of paper. Our evening shift now check all bathrooms throughout the day to ensure this doesn't happen again and the skirting boards have been fully cleaned. The taps in the shower were replaced...

An excellent place to stay, super friendly and very helpful staff, lovely clean rooms. My 6 year old daughter wanted to move in she loved it that much. I would definitely stay again. Their breakfasts were delicious, they provided extra tea and toast etc when requested. The light bulb also blew in our room and it was changed within ten...

Stayed here for the weekend whilst visiting to run in the Waterford Marathon having booked on line based really on the price is it couldn't be beaten and the location.
