This is my fourth time in this hotel. Noise and heat are the main down sides. The rooms at the front of the hotel suffers from traffic noise and the rear rooms from noisy extraction / aircon fans. The bathroom extractors are easily heard from other rooms, not a recipe for a good nights sleep if you are used to silence.
The staff are professional some friendly some cold and quite aloof although they all execute their tasks well.
The rooms are very warm, but the noise means keeping the windows open is not possible for a light sleeper like myself. For some bizarre reason the heating was on in the corridoor this week (1 Aug) I reported it to the reception and was given some
cock and bull about it getting cold in them at night, in Aug when it is 20 deg!
We ate here on our first visit and was very disappointed so since have stuck to the excellent (if a little pricey) selection of eateries in Waterford. (L'atmosphere is great but need to book)
Head for breakfast at the wrong time and you will be fighting with the many coach tours that use the hotel, not a major problem but can extend breakfast a little too much. Free parking opposite the hotel requires an endorsement of the ticket by reception, this is only valid after 5pm - 11 AM though, arrive a few mins earlier or later and you get charged.
If you do not like complete silence and are happy to have tropical temperatures in the room it would be a great hotel with free internet, free parking and roomy well equipped rooms.
