“Pleasant hotel with small rooms”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 May 2014

Stayed in hotel as part of a tour group. Located along the waterfront in Waterford with nice view, and close to pubs and restaurants. Room was very cramped as the hotel is quite old, but well mantained. Bed was small for two, smallest I have seen in a while. Very helpful staff and breakfast was quite good.

Thank you for taking the time to write your review and your comments are appreciated. What is nice to read is that any negative you found was compensated with some kind of positive and which is what happens that you quiet rightly pointed in an old building. Helpful staff and good breakfast helped you form the overall opinion that we are a pleasant place to stay. Many thanks.

There are not enough superlatives to describe the service and ambience at this Hotel. We were given a personal "Hail" and "Farwell" by the staff. The décor is wonderful, and the food and service could not have been improved upon. Definitely stay at the Granville if you are planning a trip to Waterford, Well done!

Hard to find the words to follow your comment that there are not enough superlatives to describe the service and ambience at this Hotel, other than suffice to say that we are grateful to you for taking the time out to write your review. We appreciate them and find them encouraging and hopefully someday you will get to visit The Granville Hotel again. Many thanks.

Stayed here last weekend with our little boy. Had the most relaxing and enjoyable time. Food was great, staff could not have been nicer and the hotel was charming in style but homely and cosy. Highly recommend a visit to Waterford and surrounding area, beautiful part of Ireland. Staying at the Granville was the icing on the cake.

Your recommendation of visiting Waterford is very welcomed as it is still somewhat a hidden gem with so much to do and see. It seems to be difficult getting that message across. Regarding your comments about the Granville, you can just imagine we are so pleased that you enjoyed yourself and grateful that you took the time to put them on Tripadvisor. They are very much appreciated by all of us and they are the encouragement that helps us maintain our offering. Thank you.

The hotel was worth every cent spent. Start your day with a fine breakfast. Finish at the bar with some of the finest ladies behind the bar. You will enjoy your day. There is not all that much to see in waterford. But make sure you see the waterford crystal factory

The hotel was worth every cent spent says it all for us. We try very hard to achieve that and am very grateful to you for saying it. It is very good for all us to read your review as it will help us to keep our focus on what we are trying to achieve. Next time you visit look me up and I will make a few suggestions on what there is do in Waterford and the surrounding area. Not being a bit biased but we have lots to do and see but our big task is communicating that to the visitor before they arrive but as I said next time just look me up. Many thanks again.

We joined my partners folks who live in Waterford and regularly dine at the Granville this evening for dinner in the hotel restaurant, I have to say I thought it was quite lovely. The dining room is very charming in an old fashioned sort of way, formal set tables with fresh linens etc, yet not at all "OTT" or to chintzy, in fact quite a treat these days where a bare table top and paper serviette wrapped cutlery seems to be the norm. Due to the time we were given the "EB" menu and I was impressed on the choices of dishes available, plus there was also an even more extensive range of dishes available for a really small supplement. We each chose different meals and all of us were very happy with what we were served and also how it was served. If I was to be at all negative I would say that the service was just a little quick, and there was no break in-between courses which made the evening seem a little rushed. But I'm guessing that at the prices of just 19 Euro for 2 courses and 22 Euro for 3 there would be a demand for tables to be turned over ASAP and rightly so. So Good Luck to the Granville they deserve it and I will be back very soon.

Thank you for a very positive review and what I find interesting with such a good review the tripadvisor is showing only three full circles and not five. Anyway what’s important is that you all enjoyed your meal and I am sorry it felt a bit rushed. We have recently started the EB from 5 for some of that reason not to have people feeling rushed but we do need as you said to turn the tables to keep the price right. Also the extended choice is new and again I appreciate your comment of it being only a small supplement as more choice is what we are try to achieve. Thank you for your best wishes and look forward to seeing you back.
