“Pleasant place”
Reviewed 21 July 2013

I have originally planned to stay just one day in Waterford but decided to stay one more day just because I liked the hotel and the distances in Ireland are rather small anyway :-)

Excellent location, parking across the street is covered 5 pm to next noon by the hotel, 1.80 extra hour. Tower and main shopping are few minutes walking. Breakfast is very good.

Room is clean and spacious. Bed is comfortable. Staff is friendly and helpful.

Stayed July 2013, travelled solo

My wife and I spent 7 days touring Ireland taking the southern route out of Dublin. Looking for an overnight stay in Waterford, we booked The Granville. We found this hotel to be excellent. The room was great and the hotel itself quite charming. Excellent food for dinner and the morning breakfast. Their jams were a special treat, which we continued to enjoy upon our return home. We would recommend the hotel to others visiting Waterford.

Thank you for recommending The Granville Hotel and I am sure your review will be very helpful to other visitors to Waterford. It’s lovely that you brought home the jam to remind you of your stay. The kitchen staff that read this will appreciate your emotional attachment with the hotel continues thru the jam they made. Hope you get to come back. Many thanks.

Very helpful & hard-working staff. Room was immaculate although the portable AC was odd. At the hotel restaurant "The Quay", our server Neve was so pleasant, even when extremely busy, she made our dinner most enjoyable.

Room Tip: No fitness center

We stayed in the Granville Hotel for one night during our tour to Ireland. I found it to be one of the nicest hotels that we've stayed in. I regret it was only for one night as our room was great, the staff was very friendly, the view from our room was awesome, and the breakfast was very nice. If I were to go again, I would stay here. It was in the center of town. Waterford is a charming town and I really would have liked to see more of it.

We liked everything about this classic hotel. Well maintained and in the center of town. Fantastic breakfast. I especially liked it being the birthplace of Thomas Meagher (Google it), who lived an intense, historical life.

Room Tip: Ask for a room on the back side.

We stayed four nights there last week ,July 2013, and were very impressed by the friendliness and efficiency of the reception we were given.We were advised to book a table in the restaurant should we intended to eat in,to avoid waiting in case a coach party had just arrived before us. The Parking arrangements were also clearly explained. The room was very clean and comfortable and beautifully furnished.
We ate in every night, three times in the restaurant where the staff could not have been pleasanter and the food was excellent also once in the bar.
Every member of staff we came into contact with was most friendly and helpful and nothing was to much trouble for them.
We would recommend this hotel to all and considered that it was fantastic value for money

We stayed one night in June in a standard double room. The room was spacious, clean and tidy and had a good bed. We were assisted with directions to available parking on check-in by reception staff who we found helpful. We enjoyed lunch and a drink in the Granville Hotel which is on the ground level via the main entrance / reception area. We also had breakfast in the hotels restaurant / breakfast room which offered a good selection of continental and cooked food. Overall we had a good stay at the Granville Hotel and would stay again in the future.
