Terrible hotel layout. Too many stairs to navigate to get to your room.

A lovely stay in wonderful Waterford

Posted Aug 31, 2017
Pros: Great friendly staff. Everything was well organised. Excellent location for touring Waterford. Standards kept very high.
Cons: Nothing
Location: Obviously the Waterford Crystal tour as well as the Medieval Museum, Roland's tower and the Mayor's Palace. Further afield there is the Copper shore.
A fantastic visit to Ireland's oldest city. Met so many warm, friendly people, and so much to do in the city itself and surrounding areas. I'll be coming back again in the near future to check on the things I missed this time around. Stayed at Dooley's hotel, on the quayside. Great staff and an all round great hotel. My wife and I were sad to leave, and have even taken a great interest in Hurling after watching the recent semifinal between Waterford and Cork! Dining out of an evening in Waterford was brilliant, with some lovely restaurants offering great value for money. All in all it has been a wonderful experience for the both of us.

We stayed here while touring Ireland and found the staff friendly, and helpful. The live music in the bar was a real treat and added a lot to the stay and evening. The location is very central and is a short walk to many attractions around the area, both shops, restaurants and museums. The restaurant serves lovely food although you do compete with the coach tours, which wasn't a problem and they still accommodated us.

For the money I spent it my be the worst hotel ever. WiFi worked about 10% of the time, very noisy, shower was for a tall skinny guy, shot for tv and a phone that was not hooked up. The bar food and service was very good

Wifi was non existent in the room for the 3 nights we stayed. We notified the main desk and nothing was resolved. Room had a musty odor to it. Staff at desk were very polite. Did have good wifi in the bar.

We would stay again

We stayed at Dooley's because the Granville was sold out. It turned out to be a very pleasant stay. The room was huge, the staff was wonderful. The only complaint: Our room was in the rear above a small street Many delivery trucks very early morning and noisy people very late at night.
