Golden scored 4 / 5 on 06/12/2016

Enjoyed our break at Marina Hotel from 2-4 Dec 2016. Staff very pleasant, good entertainment each evening,great choice of breakfast. We would have liked a larger bed as the double bed ? that was supplied was not suitable for two adults.


Niamh scored 5 / 5 on 20/09/2016

Vicki scored 5 / 5 on 01/12/2015

We stayed in the Waterford Marina Hotel, this hotel was fantastic, the staff were the most helpful, obliging, extremely friendly. The hotel was fabulous, everything perfect in the room. The location of the hotel was brilliant just a short walk to the city centre. The food was superb. I would highly recommend that if you were to stay in Waterford City, the Waterford Marina Hotel is the only place you should stay.


Leanna scored 4 / 5 on 24/11/2015

We were delighted with this break. It was a little tricky trying to find it as it was behind other buildings but a great location for the city. The hotel had their own parking which was great. Staff were really friendly and knowledgeable. I'm wheat intolerant and they double checked everything for me. There was a nice spread for breakfast and dinner. Their peppercorn sauce is the nicest I have ever tasted! The dining room is a bit draughty especially at the windows. Breakfast on the Sunday was busy and eveybody's toast was slightly burnt at the edges. The room was comfortable, double and a single bed, dresser, coffee maker, tv, table and chairs etc. The decor looks a bit dated and there is a smell of air freshner in the corridors but you get used to that. Shower was grand and hot and it was lovely to have the option of running a bath. It is a bit dark around the area of the hotel so I wouldn't be walking alone. We would definitely recommend a room looking out over water.

Adrienne scored 4 / 5 on 09/11/2015

A well enjoyed stay at the Waterford Marina Hotel. Our room was lovely and overlooked the river, as requested. The hotel also wished us a Happy Wedding Anniversary with a personalised greeting note and a complimentary box of Milk Tray! The dinner and breakfast included in the package was excellent and with great service. The hotel was conveniently located for exploring the city and shopping. I would not hesitate recommending this hotel to others. It was all it promiced to be and at a bargain price.

Dee scored 3 / 5 on 14/01/2015

The hotel rooms were spotless clean. As the hotel was quite small I found the reception area lacking character. The food in the hotel literally was piping hot which was off putting as it was hard to enjoy. the food portions were also quite small. All in all, the hotel was fine as myself and my wife were there for just the night. It is in quiet area of the town so there was no noise outside at night.


Patrick scored 3 / 5 on 27/06/2014

Josey scored 2 / 5 on 08/04/2014

I wouldnt have a bad word to say about the staff they were all very nice and friendly, but the hotel itself could do with a clean and maybe brightened up, my double room was tiny just enough room to walk around the bed, i was glad i was only staying for one night and not two.


Scarey scored 3 / 5 on 11/03/2014

Lane scored 5 / 5 on 04/03/2014

There for weekend with two friends, we live in Dublin, Kerry and Cork, so don't get to see each other as much as we'd like and thought Waterford convenient for all three. The Staff were welcoming, friendly, and so helpful. The food gorgeous. (had planned to dine in hotel Friday night and go out on the Sat - but the food so good, we dined in on Saturday as well). Park up the car for weekend, everything within walking distance. Lovely views. We had the best weekend. Enjoyed it so much am already planning a return visit with the hubby as soon as possible. Big thanks to all the staff. Can't say enough good and positive things about the Waterford Marina.

Ann scored 4 / 5 on 02/12/2013

We enjoyed our stay at the Marina Hotel..the staff were very helpful and friendly. No effort was too much for them to point out the "must not miss" places in Waterford, the waiting staff were attentive without being intrusive, the food was enjoyable and the ambience in the bar was very pleasant. We would have no hesitation in recommending this hotel to any visitor to Ireland. The location of the hotel is within easy walking distance to the shopping areas and tourist attractions and its situation by the river is picturesque. Great value for money.

We had a fantastic stay at The Waterford Marina Hotel. Out room was spacious, clean and overlooked the river. The food at breakfast, lunch and dinner was delicious. The staff were wonderful, everyone went out of their way to make our stay as good as possible. The hotel is in a perfect location for walking to the viking triangle and Waterford Crystal, which is a must-see for any visitor. Only recommendation I'd make to the hotel is to install even a small safe in the bedrooms. I'd definitely recommend the hotel to everyone.


John scored 4 / 5 on 17/09/2013

Hotel was very clean, with friendly staff. Rooms were spacious and breakfast was excellent. I had a nice river view from my room.


Mlydly scored 3 / 5 on 07/09/2013

The dinner was lovely, however very smal portions and i only recieved one boiled potatoe with my main course. I requested a room with a view of the river, but I did not expect that it would be a smoking room and the smell of stale cigarettes was awful. The staff in the restaurant were very friendly.


Cm scored 4 / 5 on 02/09/2013

We had a lovely stay. The staff are very helpful & friendly.The shaver unit was faulty and the cleaning lady was ever so helpful and provided a room where my husband could shave. On returning from our travels that evening the faulty shaving unit had been replaced. The room was very nice and spotless with a lovely view of the river. The breakfast was excellent and the meals in the restaurant very nice. The hotel is about 10 mins walk from the town centre. We would have no hesitation in recommending this hotel.


Mary scored 3 / 5 on 30/07/2013

This was our third visit to this hotel in three years and we have to say that we found it very relaxing and comfortable as always.The staff were very friendly and helpful and the location is quite good as it is nice to walk along the front and into town.The breakfast was also lovely.We have no hesitation in booking again and look forward to it.The Lidl breaks are great value for money.

Have to say the staff in this hotel were great, especially Danny the bar man what a lovely man and a hard worker !


Bluegirl scored 3 / 5 on 21/05/2013

The hotel is pretty basic but has all you need and only 5-10 mins walk from main shopping area, although there is many other things close by e.g waterford cyrstal, pubs etc. unfortunately there was a slight smell in the room but that was caused by the river when the tide was out. I would reccommend this hotel it was clean, food was beautiful, staff extremely friendly and helpful. Parking facility is great underground secure carpark no extra charge. Will definately stay again if looking to get away for a night.


Ann scored 4 / 5 on 14/05/2013

We were there last week for a weekend and had a great time .Staff are brilliant and very helpful.Music in the bar was great in the evening and breakfast was perfect.Couldnt fault this place except it was a little bit further down the quays than i thought but other than than we had an excellent time .


Val scored 4 / 5 on 25/04/2013

Stayed in the Marina Hotel Saturday & Sunday last, great buzz on Saturday, a little quite on Sunday, nevertheless we had a truly relaxing time, Staff made us feel so welcome, Room was as ordered, it had everything we required, with a great view of the River Suir, with plenty of water activity. Food is really good, (get plenty of it) and the price is right. Breakfast is spot on, great variety to choose from. Only 10 minutes walk from the City Center. This is our second time staying in the Marina Hotel, and I will definitely return, fantastic VALUE FOR MONEY "WELL DONE LIDL" & THANK YOU Val (DUBLIN)

Spent St Patrick's Day weekend herel! Great atmosphere, friendly staff and great location (just close enough to the city to be able to walk everywhere and far enough away not to be too noisy! Would recommend it!!

Stayed for two nights in February we are a couple with and 12 yr old child. Staff are lovely, room was great nice and spacious with super view. The location is great, walking distance of the centre and all the attractions and also there's a lovely little park beside it called the Peoples Park with a great playground if you have children of that age. I can highly reommend the coffee shop in the park as well. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would love to return.


Noddy scored 4 / 5 on 06/01/2013

Stayed here first week in January with three children. Staff were very helpful and could not do enough. Family room was huge and comfortable and location very good. Biggest down side was breakfast,standard buffer fair which I dont like as i ilike a fresh grilled breakfeast,wasn't much other choice eg. eggs benidict. Apart from breakfeast its a fine hotel and the staff really make it homely.

I found my recent stay in the marina hotel to be very pleasant. Staff were welcoming,dinner was gorgeous & the rooms were very comfortable. It was excellent value & look forward to returning.


John scored 5 / 5 on 04/12/2012

Great location & with parking on site. Staff were friendly & room was fine, shower could have been a bit warmer but otherwise no complaints. The buffet breakfast was enough to keep us going all day! Was tempted by a nightcap in the hotel bar late on Sat night but the dodgy music being played put an end to that idea, luckily it didn't last too long as could still hear it in the room.


Debbie scored 4 / 5 on 04/11/2012

We stayed for only the one night in the hotel and was sorry that we hadn't arranged a second. We did a Lidl one night break which was excellent value. From the moment we walked in, it was lovely, we were greeted by a very friendly receptionist, and although there was a problem with the key card, the staff couldnt have been more helpful. The room was just like the picture on the website - spotless white bed linen and immaculate towels. Food was fabulous! So handy to the town centre and a lovely river view. Secure locked parking too. Absolutly no complaints what so ever and wouldnt hesitate to visit the hotel again or highly recomment it to friends. The only thing I would change is the length of time we stayed there!!

Lovely Hotel just a short walk from the town and just beside Waterford Crystal. Extremely friendly and helpful staff and the rooms were spacious and clean. We all had a lovely weekend and I would recommend this hotel.


Muriel scored 5 / 5 on 16/10/2012

This hotel is really a hidden gem in Waterford City, within walking distance of shops, pubs and restaurants. The staff were very friendly and efficient. Going on previous reviews we asked for a room away from the bar with a river view and I must say that was exactly what we got - and the rooms were very spacious and comfortable, We opted for the dinner, bed and breakfast package which we found to be excellent value, there was a great choice on the evening menu and we tucked into the hearty breakfast the following morning while taking in the views of the river with all the boating activities taking place. We will definitely be back to stay at this hotel again.


And scored 3 / 5 on 16/10/2012

Nice Hotel, very pleasant staff. Rooms are spacious and clean. The only criticism I have was with the waiting staff.or should I say one in particular! We didn't have Dinner in the hotel but had breakfast the following morning. I watched with horror when I saw one of the waitresses setting a table, she was handling all the forks,spoons etc not by the handle but by the part you eat off. The same waitress dropped cutlery on the floor, picked it up and set the table with the same cutlery!!!


Firstclassdub scored 2 / 5 on 03/10/2012

Having stayed here previously, our expectations were high. It is fair to say that the views/rooms are lovely and for the price, it was reasonable. The breakfast is good, with both quality and quantity, if the hotel could bring that to their evening menu they could be on to a winner, but their dinner menu is very dissapointing, with poor food and portions in favour of children rather than adults. Having also had an evening meal at another hotel in the city, which was excellent, this hotel should realise that with the current financial situation, people will go out for better value and better food quality. The staff were lovely in general, but their were problems. We had asked for late check out on arrival and this was agreed but on the day of departure, we were called by the reception to remind us we were" late" checking out and we had to remind them of our agreement. Then the lady cleaning the rooms, banging on the door asking us when we were leaving as it was her last room and she wanted to go home. Never had this in any hotel we have ever stayed in and it put a disapointing end to our break, even though the manager apologised, it should not have happened and management and staff need to communicate with each other to avoid this in future. Will we stay again?, I don't know, with so many other hotels in the city, probably not.

5 of us travelled down to the hotel on Saturday 15th September, we arrived before 11am and went shopping as all women do, the receptionist phoned me to let me know that our rooms were ready, we could not of been treated any nicer, the rooms were situated across from each other as I had asked for , the rooms were lovely with tea/ coffee making facilities, everything was spotless, our dinner menu was lovely and the staff were really friendly and as a special touch as we were celecrating the twins 50th birthdays cheese cake came out with birthdays candles in them. The music on the night was great a one man band who could play anything we left at 12 on Sunday I would recommend this hotel to everyone and we will be back.. Eileen Maher

Luca scored 3 / 5 on 13/09/2012

Stayed in a Family room for 2 nights and we found it was good value except our view was the flats and car park. Breakfast was standard. Staff were very friendly and efficient. The hotel is ideally located for walking to shops and the kids loved the People's Park which is only a short stroll away. I think it has the best playground we have found in Ireland so far. The Gate lodge cafe was a real treat and great lunch.


Elizabeth scored 2 / 5 on 06/09/2012

The hotel was nice, good location, pleasant staff, live music both nights we were there. The big problem was the ceiling fan in the bathroom which was going 24 hours a day. Got very little sleep the 1st night. Reception assured me it would be turned off when l politly complained the next morning at 9.30 am. When we arrived back in our room after a night out all was finally silent after the fan had been going all day & was beginning to sound like a jumbo jet was in the room. Finally got some sleep till 5.45am when it started up again. Was very disappointed that having said they would turn the fan off they did not bother. Would not stay there again.


M.c scored 3 / 5 on 29/07/2012

I have been to this hotel several times and have been happy with the overall experience. One of the things I particularly like is the lock up car park. however this time I found notices up telling me to park in the enclosed car park before booking in. On my arrival it was pouring with rain. There are sever parking bays at the rear of the hotel marked Hotel. In view of the weather and the fact that at 73 years of age I did not relish the thought of dragging our cases from the underground car park, i did in fact park in one of these spaces. I raised the matter with reception and was told the hotel only had two disabled bays at the rear of the hotel and that I was likely to be clamped in the other bays. This seemed to be in keeping with the notice I had seen outside and the one attached to the reception desk. It did seem to me if this information was correct that the marking of hotel on the bays should have been removed. The following day I went back to reception and asked them to verify that if I parked in the bays marked hotel I was in danger of being clamped. This time I was informed that the bays marked hotel could be used by the hotel guests. i still hold the opinion that the hotel is comfortable and good value for money which is the reason have returned so often. That said I think the question of the use of the car park should be made clear to patrons. Getting two opposing versions of the situation does not make for a happy guest. I would also like to suggest in this day and age where most people carry valuable electronic items such as lap tops it would be nice to have a room safe as is usual with most hotels these days. I would be interested to know the managements version of the car park situation.

Firstclassdub. scored 3 / 5 on 27/06/2012

On arrival, the check in was courtious and fast. The hotel itself boasts stunning views over the River Suir, and even though the main shopping area is a short stroll away you have the "get away from it all" feeling. Staff were very friendly and professional. Ordered breakfast to the room for the three mornings there and was delivered on time twice but had to phone on the third occasion, but then it was delivered speedily. We ate only once in hotel bar and had the "special of the day". It was a very small portion of food and to be honest I would not recommend it if you were hungry. A few extra scoops of mash would have made a difference, but this would be the only fault I would have. Rooms were bright with lovely views and cleaned each day without fail. If you want a late checkout on day of departure, do ask in plenty of time or when booking as this was not possible on departure for us. Overall I would definately stay again, well done Waterford Marina.


Dom scored 4 / 5 on 10/06/2012

Stayed in a family room (1 double and 2 singles). Nice family friendly hotel, perfect for a short and good value stay. Staff very friendly. Within walking distance to the main areas, car needed for exploring further a field (Tramore, Dunmore, Passage East, etc), secure parking in their underground guest only car park. Nice setting along by the river Suir, this area has been renovated quite well. Breakfast was great each morning, good selection of cereals, breads, fruit and juice from the buffet and then a nice selection of cooked food, no complaints from my gang who filled up each morning. Bar food was fine but lacked variety and a little more imagination could go into the kids menu, but I'm sure keeping it simple works from a cost perspective, no issue with the quality. Would be great if it had a pool for the kids or an arrangement with one of the nearby facilities. Would recommend for a short city break, well done to the management and staff proving that good value and service can be accomplished in a city center location.


Fiona scored 5 / 5 on 03/06/2012

We stayed in the Waterford Marina Hotel last weekend. It was my first visit but definitely won’t be my last. We ate in the hotel both nights as the food was fabulous both in the bar and the restaurant. The rooms were spacious and spotless. We couldn’t fault the hotel and to get it for such a great price on the Lidl breaks was a bonus. But I couldn’t do this review without mentioning the amazing staff – from front of desk to restaurant manager to bar to household staff they were so helpful, polite and friendly. Always with a smile on their faces and with a full hotel and plenty of challenges they never faltered. We’ll be back real soon! Fiona Duffy

We really enjoyed our stay at the Marina. Lovely comfortable room with great view over river Suir. Great breakfast and one of the nicest evening meals we have had in a long time served by staff who semed to be enjoying their job. Catered well for my wife's gluten free needs. Well done to everyone at the Marina.


Gc2006 scored 3 / 5 on 29/05/2012

The food in the restaurant was pretty basic fare - but was entirely edible. They messed up my starter (deep fried brie should be harder to get wrong than right) as it was uncooked and when it came back out it was only slightly more cooked. Main course was chicken which was perfectly tasty. Desert was a selection of treats which looked tastier than they actually were but they were still nice and at the price it's not like you'd complain too much. The breakfast was pretty bland but it was at least substantial. The room we got was absolutely huge jutting out into the harbour with windows on 3 walls and a great view. A reasonably priced hotel in a nice location and is only let down by the food. If I could get the same room again, I'd definitely stay here but forego the food.

Have only one complaint about the hotel and that is the entertainment in the residence bar the first night we stayed, an awful singer called Just Kieran. There was no effort and he kept messing up his equiptment and pretended to play the guitar throughout his set. Apart from that the Marina is a brilliant hotel, rooms are lovely as are the staff. Parking was free and very safe and the breakfast and dinner were gorgeous. Would highly recommend to everyone.

my family stayed at the marina hotel for the may day weekend, we were celebrating my 60th birthday, The staff were exceptional they went above and beyond their duty to ensure we were well looked after, We have stayed in many hotels throughout the country but none compare to this one for comfort and cleanliness. The food in both the bar and restaurant was excellent, we most definitly will be returning for another stay and would highly recommend it to anyone who is thinking about a break in the south east you will not be dissapointed. Thanks again to all the staff who looked after us so well.

the hotel was very centrally located, rooms were very big and clean. the staff were really friendly and very helpful. we only ate breakfast there and it was cvery nice and fresh. i woudl definitely recommend this hotel to others. my only issue and its a personal one, was the toileteries weren't good didn't like the shower gel/hand soap/shampoo combi in the bathroom.


Tina scored 3 / 5 on 18/04/2012

The hotel is very nice with warm friendly staff and clean if small rooms. We were well looked after, the breakfast was very satisfying and even though the hotel was quite busy the staff were helpful and attentive. I would certainly stay here again and recommend it to my friends and family.

What can I say about this hotel? We stay here quite a lot and it has never been a let down. The rooms are always clean and fresh, the food is great and the staff are fantastic. I would recommend this hotel to anyone looking to stay in Waterford.


Becky scored 2 / 5 on 09/01/2012

The hotel itself was adequate , the staff were friendly and helpful but when me and my boyfriend stayed there it was particularly windy and we were kept awake all night with the noise of the roof (we were on the top floor) although the weather is out of the control of the hotel staff I still feel this hotel could make some other small improvements for ex: Separate Shampoo, Conditioner and Body Wash instead of a generic dispenser on the wall of the shower which was not of the standard I would expect in a hotel.

Enjoyed my stay in the Hotel. Soap/Shampoo dispenser in bathroom was not working properly and the control lever for shower was broken. Towels in bathroom were very small for showering. Food was good though at dinner we had to ask for more veg and fries as the portions were not adequate. Service was good also.


Reviewer44436916 scored 2 / 5 on 05/11/2011

After reading a lot of great reviews before booking I must say I was quite disappointed with this hotel. I will admit that the staff were very nice and the food and wine we got for dinner was lovely but I don't think I'd be staying in this hotel again, when there is a much nicer hotel very close by. Very dreary looking from the outside and very very basic hotel inside. A lot of improvements in decor could be made to improve the overall rating of this hotel. Also was quite disappointed that we had to have our dinner in the bar as the restaurant wasn't opened. Would not have booked this hotel if I knew I'd be having dinner in the bar.


Norrie scored 5 / 5 on 03/11/2011

Myself and husband and son (aged 7) were really pleased with our stay at the Marina Hotel. This was our first time to stay at the hotel. Our room was very bright, clean and extra spacious. Staff were fantastic - really friendly and helpful. Food in the hotel was really good and very good value also. The hotel was ideally located, with the city centre just a short walk away and Tramore a 20 minute drive in the opposite direction. There was also a lovely park across the road from the Hotel with two fantastic playgrounds for the kids - they really enjoyed this. All in all we had a fantastic break and would definitely recommend this hotel to our family and friends. We will definitely be back soon. See you all next time and thanks for a lovely stay. Norma

Just took a well earned one night break in Waterford and stayed at the Marina Hotel booking through the Lidl Hotel Break offer. We thought it was excellent value for 1 nights B&B and Dinner. Staff couldn't be nicer and service couldn't have been better.Very relaxing atmosphere in the Hotel and entertainment in the bar created a lovely holiday atmosphere. Will definitely stay again as the hotel is so central and its setting overlooking the river is fab.

Good hotel in a central location location in Waterford with secure parking, rooms are clean and bathroom spotless.

Stayed here for 2 nights. Staff very friendly. Food very nice. Room very spacious, comfortable and clean. Secure car parking. 10min walk from city centre.

Myself and partner had only booked the 3 nights a few weeks back, we were both looking forward to a few days away from all, and that is what we got, great Hotel, perfect location only 10 minutes walk away from everything you could need , Shops, Restaurants, Take Away's, and never to leave out the great pubs, full of Irish song and buzz. The Hotel staff are real friendly & helpful, check out Danny working in the Bar, he is so helpful and cute, the food is lovely real homemade bread yum yum and again the service is very good & friendly, even got baskets of left over bread from breakfast to feed the awaiting Swans & Wild Birds, this was amazing, as our room overlooked the River Suir, it was breathtaking to see the small, boats & wild life right at your window as you enjoyed a cuppa. we really got everything we went looking for and more, most certainly recommend and we will no doubt return hopefully soon. May we extend out sincere gratitude to Lidl for the great bargain and to the Hotel Staff for making our stay so enjoyable THANK YOU

They must be doing something right because we keep coming back. The location is great. Nice for a quiet relaxing break yet only a stone throw from the shops of Waterford. A good base for exploring the area. Good food, clean rooms, helpful staff and secure car parking. Excellent value for money. A riverside haven. What more could you want.

I stayed in The Marina hotel with my Mum and Sister's. We had a brilliant stay. The staff were very friendly and most helpful. Food was very good and plenty of it. Music in the Bar was great and brilliant atmosphere. The rooms were very spacious but one small problem at night they were too warm as no air conditioning. Also the shower was difficult to turn on as the knob was too tight to turn easily. But all in all we had a brilliant stay. Lidl breaks are great value for money. Thank you.

Food in the hotel was really good and very good value also. The hotel was ideally located, with the city centre just a short walk away and Tramore a 20 minute drive in the opposite direction.

This hotel is absolutely fab. I have 3 children and we stayed in this hotel last year as well. The breakfast is lovely with a great choice of food and after breakfast the children were given bread and toast that was left over to go outside and feed the swans, which the kids love to do. Every morning and evening there is a complimentary newspaper and the staff couldn't be nicer. This hotel if very child friendly. The rooms are very big and very clean. My kids cant wait to go back again next year and they didn't want to leave. Would highly recommend this hotel to anybody.

Myself and the wife stayed in the Waterford Marina Hotel last week, the Hotel is fantastic to stay in, good food and service, the room was comfy and warm with teacoffee supplied, there was very little noise and this made a big change to some places we have stayed in, the only thing i had a problem with (only small) it took me a few minutes to find out how to get the ESB working and there was no apparent signage from the trainbus station on how to get to the Hotel. This is a great Hotel for a quiet break whether it be a Weekend or a week. Simon Morrison.

I stayed in Waterford Marina Hotel for 1 night in January with a group of girlfriends. The hotel's location is great, just 5 minutes away from the city centre. Check-in was efficient and friendly, and the rooms were spacious, clean and bright. We booked twin rooms and each contained a double and a single bed. Unfortunately one of the girls found a hair in her single bed and a hole in the sheet. We didn't eat dinner in the hotel so I can't comment on this. We found the receptionist to be really helpful when we phoned reception to inquire into where we should eat and socialise in the area. Breakfast the following morning was tasty, with plenty of variety at the buffet. On checking out we were allowed to leave our luggage in a secure room in the hotel until later in the afternoon when we collected it. All in all this is a great 3 star hotel!


Leona scored 5 / 5 on 21/12/2010

We went to Wexford for a friends 40th and decided to stay in the Marina for the night. We arrived at five to four and from the start were treated with the utmost kindness and respect. The food was fantastic and without doubt the nicest main course I've eaten ( the sea bass) and the staff were unbelievable- they couldn't do enough for us. I'd have no hesitation in recommending the Marina to any one and at such a price I will more than likely go again.

I've stayed at the waterford marina many times before and i have always found the hotel fine,this time i found the hotel was fine but the walk front at the hotel and walk up to the hotel front was covered in snow and ice and had not been cleared at all,also the walk to the car park was covered in ice and when we were leaving,the member of staff told us to watch our step!! nothing had been placed to make it less slippy and my friend had an accident outside the front of the hotel,if salt or sand had been there it would have made it alot easier to come and go.

We spent October bank holiday at Waterford Marina hotel. Was great value with Lidl Breaks and so easy to book. Hotel is in good location and we had a lovely view from room 211. The staff at this hotel truly work together as a team ensuring you have everything you need, and that you enjoy your stay. The food here is scrumptious and evening dinner is great value. Bar area and entertainment were quite enjoyable. My only criticism is the layout of breakfast counters.. While queing for your hot Irish breakfast you are blocking the counter where diners need to access cereals, fruit and bread. There is ample room to have the hot and cold counters in seperate areas.. Would definitely recommend this hotel and will no doubt return to it again. Debbie, Dublin

Had a fantastic weekend in the Marina, staff had to be one of the most friendly, attentive and courteous I have ever come across, rooms were lovely , ours had a great veiw or the river with swans and other birds constantly in sight, very relaxing. Food in the restaurant was very good and plenty of it. Buffet Breakfast had every single item you might desire. If the Marina had a lesuire center it would be a very good four star!!! Just one point, if the breakfast buffet was totally self service I think there would be less of a queue at the hot serving area. Danny was the most efficent barman in the lounge and the music was quite good.

Ammcd scored 3 / 5 on 28/09/2010

Hotel was a in a good location and we had a wonderful view of the river. Staff here are really friendly and very obliging no matter what we requested. Bar staff in particular were great. We were on the 4th floor, so it was very peaceful with no noise from the bar, although there was music in full swing there on both nights. The breakfast was good although I would like to have seen more choices for people who are not interested in full Irish. The bedroom was comfortable to an extent. Duvet was too heavy and barely fitted the bed. The bathroom also could do with a revamp. Having said that, I would stay here again for the peace and quiet it afforded. It costs %u20AC6 by taxi to the town centre. For %u20AC140 for 2 weekend nights, it was great value.

i was very disappointed in this hotel, actually would say it was the worst hotel i've ever been too. Ah were to start, the food was like bad carvery, plates were scalding and the food tepid. Microwaved me thinks!!!! The breakfast was ok. The rooms were old fashioned but not too bad.The worst thing was a 21st on the Saturday night, the screams from one young fella that he was going to kill his girlfriend (scared the living daylights out of me) and her crying half the night was truly the worst behaviour i've ever come across in a hotel. I will not be returning....ever, do yourself a favour pay a bit extra and stay in a nicer hotel than the marina.

The room we stayed in was basic but clean. The staff were friendly and co-operative, but we didn't eat on site, apart from breakfast which was pretty good. Entertainment was available on both nites we stayed there. Overall all was adequate without going that extra bit to make it a memorable stay. Weather was brill for the few days we stayed.

I would rate this hotel highly. The food was very good, the staff were friendly and helpful. The room overlooking the marina was lovely and of adequate size. There was a party of six of us and noone had any complaints. Very good value for money and i will be back.

My wife and I arrived at the hotel on Sat. p.m shortly after4 o'clock. We could not gain access to a room because the room keys could not be processed at Reception until they were delivered from upstairs. We were in an hurry as we were due at a wedding reception in Dungarvan within the hour. Eventually, after a 10/15 min. wait we did get access to a room. Just a small hitch but very annoying at the time! On Sunday morning we found that the service for breakfast was a little on the slow side initiallly (perhaps due to the numbers of diners?) but this soon altered and we were looked after very well. The room was clean and the bed was comfortable. The in-room services were good. However, some of the bathroom fixtures could do with an uplift. The Staff were pleasant and most obliging. Pricewise, excellent value and a beautiful location. Would not hesitate to go back again! This was our second stay in this hotel. Rating - Four Star!

hotel was clean, staff were nice location was okay ,hard to get parking as there were people who lived in the apartments sharing the same car park rooms were clean but very warm and no way to ajust heating.Good for couples and hens /stags but families should look else were as there is no pool.

I stayed here with my husband for one night, I would consider this as a tourist class hotel, it is convenient for sightseeing in Waterford. The hotel is very tired and in need of a complete fit out. Our room was very basic and stuffy with no air conditioning. The carpets are old and saggy. We had breakfast and dinner in the restaurant, we were surprised by the quality of the food and the staff were lovely, but the condition of the restaurant area left a lot to be desired. If your not bothered by the the tired decor its fine. but I would definitely not be returning.

We really enjoyed our stay in the Waterford Marina Hotel, it was real value for money. We have 3 Children and they all enjoyed their holiday. The Hotel room was very clean and spacious. There was complimentry newspapers every morning and evening from reception. The staff were really friendly and helpful, escecially with the children. After breakfast the kids were given bread to feed the swans that were on the river outside the hotel. The food was excellent and we will definately be going back next year. The hotel is right in the centre of Waterford, it only took a few minutes to walk into the town and there was a fab park right across the road from the hotel, with two fab play grounds for the kids. I would highly recommend this hotel to anyone thinking of going to Waterford.

We had a lovely stay at the Waerford Marina Hotel. It is a lovely little hotel, tucked away in a quiet side street a few minutes walk from the city and the quays. We stayed in a family room with our two children which was very comfortable and spacious. Breakfast was really lovely with a great selection of everything. Staff were really friendly and couldn't do enough for us. There was also a park across the road from the hotel which had two fantastic play grounds for the kids. The hotel overlooked the River Suir and the staff gave the kids some bread every day to feed the swans - they had a great time! Bar food was good and the menu varied and good value. We stayed for two nights and it was great value. Only for the Lidl Breaks we would never have found this hotel. We'll definitely go back.

Dublindiva scored 4 / 5 on 26/07/2010

We had a great stay. We jst stayed for one night.The room was clean and a great size.It had a riversde view as requested.The breakfast was absolutely super value and great tasting! The only thing that we felt let us down slightly,was the residents bar. We arrived at about 3.01am and we could not get a late drink! apparently the bar closes at 3.00am.This is totally understandable but nobody had let us know in advance.A warning at check-in would suffice. Staff were all friendly and nice.An enjoyable stay overall. And great value for money.Thankyou Lidal Breaks. Cheers.

Emer scored 2 / 5 on 30/06/2010

The hotel is clean and the staff are very friendly and helpful. We ate in the bar on the evening we arrived, we could choos from the bar or A La Carte menu, thruthfully there was not much of a choice on either. The food was very poor and tasteless. The steak was very dry and fatty, it seemed to have been cooked most of the day and then reheated. The breakfast next morning was very nice. Would be a great hotel if they can improve on the bar/A La Carte foods.


Carmel scored 3 / 5 on 29/06/2010

We had a lovely stay here. The staff were very helpful and friendly, the food was good and location is perfect. He who matters say that they sell the best pint of the black stuff he has had in a long time. The selection in the very comfortable bar was great and again the staff were lovely. My request for a lake view was honoured. No complaints
