“Clean and comfortable.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 July 2012

This hotel was clean and comfortable for the one night we were there. There was also a tour bus full of travelers there as well and I think the Granville Hotel caters more to these types of groups. Our room faced the back of the hotel and with the windows open, there was quite a bit of noise from the kitchen. We had requested a king size bed when we reserved our room 4 months previous, and upon check in we were told that they had very few of those and they were unavailable. Our room had 1 double and 2 twins. The staff was friendly but not overly helpful. The bar was busy and it took a bit to get some service but it was a pleasant meal with good food. All in all I would have to say that it was a simply average hotel

Stayed July 2012, travelled as a couple

Thank you for taking the time to write your comments. Glad you thought The Granville Hotel was clean and comfortable which is what we try hard to achieve. Had we got the room request right, perhaps you would have gone away feeling that we where more than a average place. I apologies for this. Four months out should have been enough time to fulfil your request or the least we should have done was made you aware in time that we had no king size available. Should you get to stay with us in the further I am sure we will be able to facilitate your request. Many Thanks again.

As a seasoned business traveller I have stayed in many hotels, but when I'm in Waterford I always stay at the Granville, the hotel is clean and comfortable and the staff helpful and friendly. The rooms are very comfortable and offer everything you actually need when away from home, a desk, a seating area, coffee and tea making facilities and complementary bottled water. These basic necessities make all the difference. The bar is friendly and the service first class, the bar meals are great if you want a casual meal and the main restaurant offers fantastic choice if you want a special evening. Situated on the quay, and right in the centre of the town it is perfectly positioned, I would recommend this hotel to anyone looking to spend some time in Waterford.

On a Globus coach tour in Ireland and arrived at this hotel. Manager boarded the bus and welcomed all of us, a really nice touch. The hotel layout is brilliant. The bar decor is charming and a great place for visiting and enjoying a drink. The rooms offer a really nice comfortable bed although small, very clean. I loved staying here. The family style dining room was perfect, meals were top notch and their efficient staff are very accommodating. I had an excellent experience here. After the coach tour ended this was by far my favourite hotel. The manager also came aboard the bus to thank us all at the end of our stay. Excellent customer service. I Highly Recommend this property.

Room Tip: All the rooms are Great.

We stayed here one night in June 2012 with a group of 6 people. The hotel is older, but the downstairs public areas are very nice, spacious and comfortable. It is true the rooms are small and there was no air conditioning in the rooms. We did sleep very well though. What we really liked about the hotel were the people working there. They went out of their way to make us comfortable and feel at home. We arrived late and could find no where to eat in town. The bar at the hotel accommodated us for dinner even though it was close to closing time for the kitchen. The breakfast buffet the next morning was wonderful - the best of anywhere we stayed in Ireland. And to our surprise they had reserved a table for our group in the front window. Overall the place has lots of character, so I am very glad we stayed here.

Room Tip: The rooms in the front of the hotel face the street (and river) and when the window is opened there...

We were on a Globus tour of Ireland and this was our favorite hotel. Wish we could have stayed more than one night. The Granville had the quaint feel of a Victorian hotel in the lobby and public areas, but all modern comforts in the bedrooms. The bar is a cozy, wood paneled room. Our group had dinner in the restaurant and it was served family style which enabled everyone to take only what they wanted and felt more like dining in a friend's home.
The manager even came on our bus right before we left and thanked us for staying at the Granville and wished us a wonderful remainder of our trip. No other hotel did that! What a class above.

Stayed at the Granville last month while touring Ireland. It's in a great location about 15 mins walk from the train station and close to a lot of the shopping and dining in Waterford. The rooms are quite nice and comfortable. There's great food downstairs in the bar. Overall I was very pleased.

The Granville is a lovely hotel situated opposite the Suir river. It is convenient for the sights of Waterford. Loved our bedroom although being on the 4 th floor front of hotel we needed to keep our velux window open through the night. This meant there were continuous traffic noises. Nevertheless our bed and pillows were extremely comfy and sleeping wasn't really a problem.
We were facing some buildings opposite side of the river which had a huge advertisment for the visit of the tall ships. We became exited thinking that we'd get up in the morning to a full view of these magnificent yachts and ships!
Unfortunately we realised, when no ships appeared, that the advert was for 2011!! What a shame!!!

Glad that you enjoyed your stay at The Granville Hotel. I can also understand what your disappointment not seeing the Tall Ships the next morning. Pity perhaps next time as we often have some visiting tall ships tied up along the quay. Thank you for taking the time to write your review and that you appreciated the breakfast choices. This is nice for us to read as we are trying very hard to make breakfast a very good experience at The Granville Hotel.
