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 …
Today the serious touring begins - the on the bus, off the bus, on the bus, have a quick wee type of tourning... takes some getting used to. I only held the bus up once having to learn the hard rules about not running late while on tour, thankfully, I wasn't the only one throughout the day!
Our first stop was the Irish National Stud. This …
Wet morning. Back to Cardiff Castle for a castle tour - confined to interior as it was raining quite heavily. The remainder of the morning was spent in the bus heading for the ferry terminal at Pembroke in Wales for a 2.30pm sailing to Ireland. Late lunch on board. Started out smooth but became choppy during the 4 hour crossing and several of our …
Hello our friends and family: So here we are in Ireland having a wonderful time! We tried to get on this website a few times earlier but had some "tech" problems. Regardless, the trip has been fantastic! The weather has been cooperating. It has been in the high forties to low fifties with a few showers here and there but nothing steady. We left JFK …
... meal of stew cooked with guiness and mash with great traditional live Irish music. Local "smithwick"ale was pretty good too. My travel buddy after enjoying a red wine had some trouble finding the bottom stair on her way to the toilet but seems undamaged so must have had a soft landing! We then walked around the grounds of Kilkenny castle in warm sunshine and started talking to an Irishman about his little dog who kept running off. Found out he was a Hawthorn ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Waterford Marina Hotel
Very poor quality
i stayed in the hotel recently, and have never seen such a dirty hotel, the rooms were so dismal, would need to be re painted, and the bathroom and shower need a good scrubbing, it was extremely dirty,
extremely noisy at night , Breakfast was very poor, buffet style, dirty tables and cereal all over the floor, also the Food for breakfast was poor,seems to be sittting there all morning ,
i would not recommend this hotel to any one, we paid €138.00 for one night its very expensive for poor quality,
We stayed in the Quality Hotel in Waterford while at the races in Tramore. On first impressions the hotel is located overlooking the river, private parking, nice foyee. All good points. The room was fine also, nice decor, bathroom a bit shabby though!
This hotel was great - except for the slamming doors! Every door shut with a LOUD SLAMMING BANG! The room was very pleasant - large and clean. We were on the Second floor and overlooked the river - it was a very nice view and there was a table and chairs there by the window. The breakfast in the restaurant was very good - and we did eat a few snacks in the bar, which were quite reasonable. If it weren't for the horrible loud bangs all night long, this would have been top notch! It is a little bit up from the main part of town, but as long as you don't mind a 10-15 minute walk, it is a nice, quiet location...at least no traffic noise!
Convenient, modern, and comfortable
Not quite on the main drag but easily within walking distance. On the water. Must be good since there was an elder person tour there. Very busy. Restaurant was ok but best for breakfast. Plenty of good restaurants in town. Hotel was modern and comfortable. We would go back.
I stayed at this hotel with a group of 7 during St Paddy's week. The hotel was very nice and clean along with the rooms. I stayed in a triple and was pleasingly suprised on how big the room was.
I also enjoyed the bar downstairs. The wait staff were extremely pleasant and helpful. This hotel is in a great location and a short walk to a great pub called "The Three Ships". What a lovely place. Had quite a few pints there.
I would recommend this hotel. We had a great time.
Stayed one night at this hotel. The staff were "over the top" friendly. Good location and free secure parking.
A great nights sleep
Stayed in the Quality Hotel Waterford in January, had a few pints and a really nice meal in the restaurant. The biggest surprise was the lack of noise from traffic, all we could hear the next morning were the birds. Our room was on the 3rd floor overlooking the river and it was one of the best nights sleep we had in a hotel. Breakfast was also one of the best hot breakfasts we had been served. So overall, the staff were friendly, the food was good and the guinness was great. I'd stay there again.
Dismal (in every sense) hotel
I stayed in the Quality Hotel in Waterford last weekend for two nights and I would not recommend it at all. The hotel was freezing cold and the food (both bar and restaurent) was appalling. One friend had food poisoning for 24 hours after eating a starter. The staff bar one waitress were inefficient and unfriendly. I am all for reasonably priced accomodation but there is no excuse for serving bad food in freezing conditions. The only reason we did not leave was the bedrooms were clean and so where the bathrooms.
Good mini break
we had a short break to waterford in January 2004, it was my birthday on the 15th and we wanted to do something special.We stayed at the Quality Hotel which was very reasonable with lovely food and friendly staff, the room was very specious with a great view of the river.In the evening we found a fantastic pub with live entertainment and great Guiness!!Lots of local pubs and pleanty of places to eat.During the day time we went shopping where there are shops to suit everybody and due to us being there for the January sale took exceptional advantage to this!!We are looking forward to going back to Waterford again and again.
Home away from home
I travel quite regularly with work and had occasion to stay at the Quality Hotel Waterford October last and a few times since. The hotel is located within walking distance of the town centre, has all the modern conveniences that I require for travel and secure parking on site. However, the one thing that keeps me going back is the staff. They are truly professional, caring, concerned and always have time for a chat when I return from the office in the evening. It's the little things like this that make being on the road that bit easier - my 2nd family.
