Weather: Wet! I had a sleep I. This morning thought Scott didn't manage one and he was up and showered by 7 and had to wait an hour before I stirred! He looked like a Mere cat every time I opened my eyes hoping I was getting up! Headed to breakfast and had a really good fruit salad with yogurt which was really nice. Was raining outside so we decided to just head off straight away to Waterford because was too wet to really do any more in Dublin. Got in the little car and took ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Fitzwilton Hotel Waterford
Just came back from a nigts stay in the fitzwilton, first impression very mod, clean and bouncy carpets! The car park is now open so that was handy. Our room was lovely very clean, flat screen tv, lovely bathroom...all in all the decor was very modern. The duvet was so soft and cosy.Our room was a family room even though it was just the two of us....so there was a link door to the other room (door each side the usual)...didn`t think much of it when the guests next door started knocking on it,ignored them as was getting ready for dinner in the dish resturant in the hotel,staff very nice menu lovely lovely atmosphere,only complaint had to pay extra for your veg!to the Aqua bar for a drink very nice a bit quite,up to bed sound asleep in the lovely cosy bed until 4:30am when THEY arrived back from clubbing, music blaring and been generally LOUD, rang reception the music stopped, but they just didn`t shut up and the doors didn`t muffle anything!! But can`t fault the hotel but i`d say there were alot of annoyed guests as the noise didn`t stop till 6am
The hotel is in a very good location, maybe a bit too close to some pubs and clubs as it gets very noisy after 12 till nearly 4. The resaon I booked here, was because it had its own Car Park, as Waterford isnt the best for safe overnight parking. On arrival, I was informed there was no Car Park and I would have to park down on the Quays and pay for this myself, after a 15 minute arguement with the staff on reception they agreed to pay for the parking.
Visited the Fitzwilton in Waterford with a group of friends for a weekend away! The hotel is fabulous, the staff are so friendly and helpful. the rooms are excellent and very nicely decorated. its ideally located and close to all amenities. the staff had excellent tips on where to go and what to do. the food is second to none! this hotel was great value for money!!
Stayed here for one night on business in November.
Check in was so easy the girl on reception was very nice, very friendly and chatty, went to the room and it was beautiful, really spacious and a little flat screen tv.
Went to the bar for lunch and it was fab, got fish and chips was really nice and again the service was really quick and friendly.
Met up with friends for a few drinks and one of my friends stayed over, asked the manager who said no problem at all and I didnt get charged any extra. Also he left the residents bar open as long as we wanted to stay.
I would definitely stay here again, very reasonable and very friendly service.
My family wanted a central city hotel, so that we could carry all the christmas shopping we were going to do, and the Fitzwilton certainly gave us that.
Loved this Hotel
This is one of the nicest hotels I have ever stayed in. Myself and my boyfriens stayed here for the October bank holiday weekend and we thoroghly enjoyed it and we will definitely going back! We had stayed there at the end of September as well not long after it opened and we really enjoyed it! Only thing is they haven't got a car park yet but parking wasn't a problem tho!! excellent hotel
Great New Hotel
This hotel is easily located in Waterford and about a ten minute drive to the Waterford Crystal center. There is no parking or valet service which makes carrying your luggage to and from the hotel a pain but the rooms was beautiful and modern with incredibly comfortable beds and bedding. The restaurant was excellent for dinner and breakfast. Everything was very clean and the staff friendly. Would definitely stay here again.
Excellent Customer Service
My husband, 17 month old son and I spent the weekend at the Fitzwilton in Nov 06. Despite opening only in Sep 06, we encountered no teething problems during our stay. The staff were the most friendly and helpful we are encountered in a long time. Our son was sick, and they did their best to help and make us feel as comfortable as possible. I couldn't rate them highly enough. Lovely well designed contemporary decor.
Great Hotel option
Stayed here for one night of a 10 day trip to Ireland. Had mostly been staying in B&B's and was pleased with this hotel. Everything is brand new. Nice decor. Good bed. We paid 100 Euro per night which included breakfast and that was a very good price. The shower was awesome. Cons: There is no parking (ok, they recommend a pay lot about 2 blocks walk) but the bigger issue is that there isn't a place to drop off luggage, etc. for check in. Also it was quite loud at night (may have been bad luck for us, our room overlooked an apartment building and there was a HUGE very LOUD party in the building that night. Overall would recommend this new hotel with a great location.
Myself and my husband stayed at the Fitzwilton hotel this September. We loved it, everything about it was great. The staff were some of the nicest I have ever come across, really friendley and they couldnt do enough for you.
The decor is really well done, very mod.
The Restaurant was only just opening the weekend we arrived and the food was wonderful.
Will definitley come back here, especially when their leisure center is open.
