Historical Traveler Reviews Faithlegg House Hotel & Golf Resort Waterford
Lovely hotel in a peaceful setting
I stayed at this hotel for one night - and two days of conference - in April. Having read some of the previous reviews, I wasn't sure what to expect. But my experience of the hotel was excellent. The staff was friendly and helpful, the rooms were big enough, clean, with ensuite and, if anything, the hotel was too warm at times! The grounds are beautiful and kept in pristine condition. But the top marks must go to the food! Every meal was delicious - fresh fish perfectly cooked, colourful vegetables, sinful desserts..! Breakfast was buffet style with a choice of cold or cooked. I opted for the cheeses, croissants, yogurts and wonderful jams (the latter sensibly presented in large dishes from which one could fill small pots - environmentally friendly). There are self-catering units in the grounds, which would be heaven for golfers, and for families. I would definitely recommend this hotel.
Beautiful hotel, didn't want to leave!
The hotel was beautiful! The food was delicious! The room we had was very nice and clean. We only stayed one night, wished would could have stayed more.
Dear Trip Advisior,
I have thought about emailing before, i would have sooner if i had seen the nasty emails with Regards to Faithlegg House.
It is truely a Fantastic Estate, in the middle of the Country, it has everything you would want to have on a relaxing retreat, this is my third time visiting.
We went mid week and it was so peaceful you could actually hear yourself think!
The Staff were professional and really friendly and they seemed to be happy to be there.
The food is Fantastic, the Chef has a great name and i can see why.
Overall, i would recommend anyone to try it out.
Ok, but no means a 4 star hotel
Stay for a two night break at the end of December 2005. Staff not very friendly, hotel cold throughout. Rad in room was hot but rooms still seemed to be very cold. Members of my party tried to book a Spa treatment but they where booked out ?. Food and drink over priced. Had to ask 4 times for tea and Coffee at breakfast time and this was at a buffet breakfast. Hate to think how long we would have waited if they had to serve breakfast as well ? I am sure some people have good experiences but ours was not.
Could be alot better
Went to this hotel for a relaxing break, is out on its own and it quiet, but as other reviews have said, bedrooms are very small, could hear people next door and wasnt the cleanest. Restaurant food was very nice though. Breakfast is buffet, which we were also never told about when we were seated, and also had to call a waiter for tea/coffee/toast and also ordered some fish that was on the menu to order from, which we never got, as we waited so long and couldnt get a waiters attention,we just left. Is over priced for what you get.
Expensive, unfriendly and often dirty
I stayed at this hotel recently for a weekend wedding and to be honest I wasn't expecting much as I had stayed previously for work. I was prepared for the small rooms and blah bedroom decor as well as the paper thin walls in the bedroom wing. I wasn't, however, prepared for:
The unfriendly staff - the woman at reception with the demenor of a prison matron who checked her watch before demanding payment for our two night stay. The bar staff who acted like they were doing us a favor when they brought a drink.
The dirt - the first night my sleeve stuck to the main bar, during the wedding reception the ladies bathroom was not once checked by a staff member.
The food - I was served fish well passed its sell by date a real pity given the hotel's proximity to rivers and the sea
Overpriced,very bad service, tiny rooms
We found the staff at faithlegg to be extremely rude. They never greeted guests on arrival and when buying drinks they were slow to take an order and slower to give the drinks as though serving guests was below them. The food and drinks there were overpriced(7euros for a sandwich. 5 euros for a baileys). The room was very small with barely enough room to negotiate around the obstacles.
On the night we were staying there was a wedding. A strange smell like sewerage spread through that room and we could smell it when we walked down the hall to our room. The guests were leaving the room almost getting sick from the smell.
The next morning we went for breakfast. The waiter didn't tell us that it was self service and we had to go into the next room for food. We sat there for five minutes before we saw someone else bring in their plate and figured it out. Nobody asked us if we wanted coffee or toast so finally i asked a waiter. He came back with two slices of toast for two people. He put them in front of my boyfriend.
Then on leaving the woman at reception checked her watch twice to make sure we weren't checking out late enough for her to charge us for another night. Then she goes "200+ euros", no "thank you" or "was everything all right?"
I would not recommend this hotel to anyone and cant believe that they have a four star ranking. That would want to be reviewed by the bodies that awarded it.
My wife and I stayed for a weekend. I coudn't recommend Faithlegg highly enough. The facitities are brilliant. But it's the staff that make it brilliant. They actually look like they're enjoying their work. It's great to see you can still get service with a smile!! The golf course is beautiful. Jacuzzi has to be seen to be believed. The food was lovely, although some nicer veg would be good. Service in the Golf Club was a little below par. Excuse the pun!! Apart from that excellent all round!!!
Stayed for a weekend
Stayed here for a weekend package. Beautiful hotel, very relaxing.
Staff extremely helpful and friendly. However, restaurant wasn't as good as I had been led to believe.
All in all though, a good place for a relaxing weekend.
This place is just beautiful!! Recommend it for anyone! Quite a drive to the city but its the nicest placec iv'e ever stayed!

... from the 1700's. We also toured a medieval castle museum. In this museum they had Priests vestments from the 1460's. They were silk and gold woven and had been buried for 123 years in 1650 before the city fell to Oliver Cromwell. Obviously behind glass and protected from light and temperature and in perfect condition. ...
... a Scottish bap but very light and fresh and delicious buttered. We then walked along the quay and caught the shuttle back to the ship. There was time to relax before getting changed and going to the Looking Glass for the 5:30 sail away champagne reception for PHT guests, where we sat with Darroll, Maria, Alf and Jacqui and enjoyed the views along the scenic inlet and out to sea. We had to join the reserved table at the Mosaic Café for more (better) champagne at ...

We walked down from the top of the castle, four of us talking very eloquently, and into the poison garden. The kids thought this was great as they recognised some of the plant names from Harry Potter - wolfsbane, monkshood, mandrake. There was ...
... one from the museum. We stop in a store where I pick up some more postcards and ask them for some recommendations for lunch. They offer several places, but we decide on the Cafe Royal located upstairs from the theater. I get the coriander and carrot soup with homemade brown bread and a coke. I figure I have the best chance of finding a coke with my name on it here in Ireland since there is a county that shares my name. ...
... or coffee and ran into a friend of mine from UL – a Finnish girl (a different one) who is living in Kilkenny now. We chatted and coffeed with some others from her show that she’s in for the next couple of hours, until I bid them adieu and went back to the castle courtyard to watch me some Shakespeare. The night was gorgeous, which was good because not only did the audience not have a cover, but the actors didn’t have one either ...
