“Classy Hotel with excellent staff”
Reviewed 26 October 2012

We stayed recently for 2 nights in a beautiful room over looking the river. The hotel has a wounderful old world charm about it, but tastefully modern. The restaurant has a great athmosphere and is very well appointed. We dined in house on both nights and enjoyed fabulous food and wine from an extensive list. There we were greeted warmly by the GM Richard and the next evening by the owner Liam. The staff throughout the hotel are extremly helpful and courteous. It is littel wounder the hotel recently won the award for best hotel. Well done Liam & Richard. We will be back.

Room Tip: Choose a suite overlooking the river. Well worth the little extra!

Very much appreciate your kind comments. Without helpful and courteous staff the Granville would not flourish and I am sure they too will appreciate your comments when they read your review. Many thanks for taking the time and look forward to being of service to you in the future.

We were just one of three tour groups staying here. The manager came onboard the bus to greet us upon arrival and then to wish us a good journey as we left. The rooms were spacious, location was terrific and the food service was top notch. It was indeed a Grand hotel and the best one during our two week tour of Ireland.

My wife and I were on a tour, joining 43 others.
The general manager came out to personally greet us, was also involved with serving dinner and breakfast - both meals were very good, making sure everything was fine; when we left, he personally came onto the bus and thanked us for visiting Granville and hoped that our visit was pleasant. Hotel is located in a great area, near the Waterford Crystal Museum, as well as right out on the waterfront.
Not sure why, but shower faucets in the UK present a challenge until you get to know how it works. One knob is for temperature, the other knob is for strength of water coming out. And the knobs are very hard to grip when your hands are soaped.

I stayed in The Granville hotel with my wife on 16/10/12. With so many hotels empty around Ireland it was great to stay in a hotel with plenty of visitors[Mainly American]. The breakfast was the best I have had in any Irish Hotel at any price [€174 in Killarney for B&B for 1!!]. This hotel is reasonable priced but gives personal service and serves quality food above the Irish Norm .

Our breakfast chefs were delighted to read your review and it gives them courage to introduce a new dish to our breakfast menu which is Blaa Eggs Benedict Waterford Style. Poached egg and ham on a toasted Waterford Blaa with Hollandaise sauce. Perhaps the next time you visit you can try our new dish. Many thanks for taking the time to write your review.

The General Manager really knows the hotel business. He is extremely active and is always striving to make his guests experience a good one. This grand old hotel is kept spotless and elgeant. The staff is very friendly and the bar/restaurant is a great place to have a pub dinner. Highly recommend if you are going to be in Waterford. The experience ranks up there with the Ashford Castle but much better management and staff.
