Mant thanks for such a glowing review. Delighted you had a great time staying at the Granville. You commented on all the things we try very hard to achieve and this helps us to keep focused on these things that are simple but so important.

Stayed at the Granville Dec 30th to January 1st. Overall an excellent hotel in good location -parking across from hotel easy and cheap.
At this time of year hotel was obviously very busy but service very good -room good with free wired internet.
Jackie at reception (owners daughter) could not have been more helpful even when we had to change plans from 3 nights to 2 nights and then cancelled evening meal to go somehwere else. Try the Flame in Henrietta Street.
Service at crowded bar very efficient and helpful -suggested full bottle of wine more economic than 3 small bottles -well done -it was.
Had a wedding ending and evening function so very busy -we were warned when we checked in that we would hear some music until about 1 > 1-15am unfortunately had to ring front desk at 2am and ask how long would the very loud music be keeping us awake for -answer -we have just asked for it to end and it did 10 minutes later.
This did not decry from a very pleaseant stay at the hotel -we visired Tramore races on the 31st -if you like racing it is a small pleasant track very welcoming.

Many thanks for taking the time to write your review. Lovely to read you enjoyed taking in Tramore races and your stay at the Granville during the busy festive season. It's important for Waterford that guests get to experience what we have to offer. Perhaps you will return for next years festivities.

We stayed only one night. It was quite adequate for us. Parking is available directly across the road in a public car park. Parking ticket is validated between 5pm and 11am. Outside these hours you pay the hourly rate. The room was Extremely Hot! The radiator would not go off for hours! Staff eat breakfast with guests in dining room which is quite odd... I would think a staff room is the norm! Overall a nice hotel, good breakfast(big buffet table!) a nice receptionist on the morning shift.

Food was delicious,piping hot,lots of it & so fresh...

I had the roast beef & it was melt in your mouth,cooked to perfection.There was about 7 choices & it was hard to decide as everything looked & smelled delicious.

It was very busy,but staff kept the tables cleared so we didn'y have to wait long !

It was a little on the expensive side,but considering the quality of the food it was worth it.

We will return.

I liked the fact they had a midweek special that included breakfast and parking. The rooms are large and the hotel is quiet. Would recommend for a short stay in Waterford. We enjoyed the view of the river, and that it is a 5 minute walk to Waterford Crystal.

Had dinner here tonight with my partner....service was not great...barely asked if we needed anything. The food...we both ordered turkey and ham...and had a small bowl of potatoes and veg to share between us. Partner got a lemonade in a small brandy glass and charged. €2.50 whereas I got a large glass of coke for €1.90. Turkey was lovely but the rest was not great. Partner charged 16 euro for main course alone where I was charged just under twenty euro for three courses, which I only had two of. Would not eat here again.

We havejust returned from a mid week stay in the Granville along with two other couples. From the time we arrived to the time of departure we could not fault the hotel. The staff were wonderful- friendly and efficient. Two of the bedrooms were large and the third was adequate for a short stay, though the fact that it was at the back of the hotel was a bonus. The rooms were warm and comfortable. The location was excellent, only minutes from the shopping area, museums etc.
We hope to return soon.
