“Very enjoyable stay.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 March 2013

I spent the first week-end in March 2013 in this hotel to celebrate my birthday. I would like to thank Helen and Jean for the surprise while having breakfast on the morning of my birthday. I would also give praise to Karen the manager, and Linday and all the staff who are always most accomodating when I stay at the hotel. I have never been disappointed on any of my trips, always enjoyed the ambience and homliness of the hotel. Breakfasts always hot, dinners equally good. The rooms are kept very clean, water always hot in bathroom. The hotel is situated close to the 'peoples park' great for a walk which I like. I always feel welcome at this hotel and will keep coming back.
Shaun Manning.

I stayed here with my family (party of 6) over the week-end of 22nd-24th February 2013, as we were in Waterford for a family party. We could not fault the accommodation, service and food-great breakfasts. The staff were all extremely friendly and helpful. I would definitely recommend it and I would stay here again. Nice quite location as well, yet near enough to the center to be convenient.

just recently stayed in Marina hotel - hotel is lovely really great location you can walk everywhere you need in the town. the staff very friendly and thank you to bar staff on last sunday for their hospitality. the offer deal for restaurant was nice one of the nights but not my style of food the other. the hotel rooms were nice - very noisy in the mornings and late night - the heat was unreal though - couldnt sleep for one of the nights stay- advised the hotel when leaving and i was advised there is only a on or off switch and that is it. think maybe an investment on valves on raditators would help.

I am delighted to read that you enjoyed your return visit to the Waterford Marina Hotel, a huge amount of our guests have stayed with us before and choose to return for the same reasons as yourself which is mainly the staff. I am very lucky to work with a lovely team of people in all departments and they like myself will do our very best to make sure you enjoy your stay with us.
I would like to opportunity to introduce myself to you both on your next visit and please ask for a riverview room at reservation time so you enjoy the lovely views of the River Suir.
Kind regards

We had two rooms at this hotel. One triple room and one double. Our double overlooked the nearby river, and the triple overlooked the car park.

The rooms were generously sized and deliciously warm, plus the windows open if you want a blast of cooler air! The decor was lovely and wifi easy to access.

Towels could have been larger and only one soap for bathroom.

The location is excellent and only a short walk to the city centre including the world famous Waterford Crystal. There is a bar downstairs and complimentary newspapers available at the front reception desk.

Car parking is available and we managed to snaffle a car park close outside the hotel, but there is additional car parking available underground apparently.

Staff are friendly and welcoming, including the housekeepers on each floor.

Highly recommend this hotel.

Room Tip: Ask for a river view if available :)

Waterford City is indeed a great place to visit and all the wonderful attractions like Waterford Crystal, Bishops Palace and the new Medieval Museum all on our doorstep.

We booked into the Marina for a relaxing weekend away and that is exactly what it was. We were within walking distance to the city centre. The welcome was lovely with a packet of love hearts on our pillow as it was Valentines weekend. When we went down to the bar on Friday night there was a brilliant band playing and we got a bowl of cocktail sausages during the night. Breakfast was lovely and fresh. Saturday night again music which was not as good as friday night but again we got cocktail sausages. Safe very pleasant, always smiling. Rooms basic but clean. Would definitely recommend this hotel

Room Tip: Views of the river lovely
