Positive Reviews


A Scenic, Convenient Setting

Guests noted how this hotel is well located so it's easy to walk to some of Waterford's top attractions. The hotel features views overlooking the river, too. Whether guests wanted to spend the day sightseeing or just relaxing, this property catered to both needs.


The Food is Excellent

The cuisine here received top marks from guests. Although most enjoyed meals in conjunction with their stays, some remarked they'd gladly even just come here to get a meal.


Great Hospitality in a Family-Owned Establishment

Not only is this hotel family owned, but when you stay here, you'll likely feel like a member of the family. Guests reported nothing seemed like too much trouble when they brought needs to the attention of staff, and matters were taken care of with good attitudes. Because of that comprehensive approach to top-notch service, guests often said they looked forward to returning soon.

Negative Reviews


A Sprawling Building Layout

This property is in a very old building, and some people remarked that the old-fashioned style of the building meant they had to walk quite a distance to reach their rooms. Sometimes this wasn't a problem, but tended to be when guests were travelling with kids or toting lots of bags.


The Rooms Look Very Old

Numerous comments from guests discussed how the rooms are very dated. Although the amenities were usually in functional condition and did not negatively impact comfort, guests still frequently said they thought management should invest in new décor.


Low Water Pressure

When using the shower, you may notice that the water pressure is quite low. That was the experience of many guests. However, they usually just thought the problem was slightly annoying and didn't interfere with their ability to bathe thoroughly.
