Reviewed 2 March 2012

The waterfoot hotel is just outside of londonderry. I stayed there for one night as part of a school trip. The rooms were all right, but the bathrooms were a little old fashioned. Some rooms are unlucky enough to be able to hear the function rooms at night - which can be quite loud. Overall the hotel was fine.

Went to the Waterfoot with friends for a meal, we were seated fairly quickly and drinks arrived fast by a very professional barman (Patsy) but our meal was very slow in coming but when it did it was gorgeous. There didnt seem to be a lot of staff about and the barman had to clear our table and get someone to take our dessert order, All in all the food was of a very high standard the surroundings very modern but the service a little below par.
We will return soon and try it again

I've been to the Waterfoot a number of times for meals or drinks.
The food is of excellent standard, very tasty. In general the staff are plesant and helpful, though often attracting attention of staff post main course for drinks or dessert can prove hard work. On a few occasions we've given up on trying to order desserts, tea/coffee, post meal drinks and simply gone to the desk to settle the bill and left.
If you have a sensitive chest/hayfever you will want to avoid the toilets as the strongly scented airfreshners in there have triggered attacks for my friend on the few occasions she's gone in there.
I've also noticed a musty smell in the fuction room bar on occasions, though it's not always there.

One of my good friends was getting married. The reception was held at the hotel. Me and my boyfriend decided to stay the night there. The reception was very well organised. The service was great. I was impressed.
The food was tasty and very filling. Traditional and large portions.
The hotel room was spotless clean. Very large and comfy beds, although a bit short!!!
Over all great impression. Thank you!

The hotel entrance is hidden right round the back so beware of that or you end up in the bar
decore is really cool and comfortable , but the rooms are still in the 80.s
Staff are first rate in reception and front of house,
restauarant staff are slow and disorganised so give yourself time for food
when it comes it is good for this standard of hotel, we attented a function style entertainment event and the food was first rate however theirr bar service at the bar was poor, trying to get a drink between courses was a non event.
Noise from the funtion room does travel to the bedrooms not overly loud but you do notice it
All in all a pleasant hotel, good food for the rating,would go back when the tighten up the staff in food and bev.

Room Tip: ask to be on the opposite side from the function room

We booked this hotel for a one night stay, we arrived early with the plan of having lunch before checking in and the receptionist was so good to allow us to access our room there and then.

All the public areas are decorated to a very high standard and very comfortable, although resident rooms are comfortable with all the facilities you would expect in a 3* hotel they would benefit from some redecorating.

The food is very good with portions being large and the staff are all very pleasant and helpful.

We were given a trip to this hotel as a Christmas present and decided to go near Valentine. We found the hotel easy enough. It was very cold outside but the hotel was lovely and warm. The reception wasn't very well sign posted and we ended up going to it via the restaurant, the staff were very pleasant.
We had a lovely meal that evening and a fantastic breakfast to start us off the next morning.
I was disappointed with the bathroom slight smell in it.
Have left a tip on the room we stayed in for anyone who can't sleep with noise.

Room Tip: I would advise that you do not choose rooms 103 -106 if you wish to get a good nights sleep. There i...
