Spent five nights at the Granville as our base for exploring Waterford County. Overall we had an enjoyable stay, though a few things could have been better. Roads were closed because of a fun run and food fair the day we arrived, so the directions given by the hotel were useless and no one had emailed alternative routes to us. Luckily we found a couple of very helpful Gardei to help us. The hotel also plays host to lots of bus tours, which means there are times when the one lift is just impossible to use as suitcases are being delivered to rooms. Our room was very comfortable, but we felt the thin, skimpy bath towels did not befit a 4-star hotel. We were given a room that does not have the internet (apparently the thickness of the walls means the wireless does not reach everywhere) - and were not advised of this on check-in. At least there is wireless in the bar, which we used but obviously not as convenient. We found the Irish staff very friendly and helpful, but unfortunately the Eastern European staff in the restaurant where we had breakfast were much less so and seemed more interested in setting tables for lunch than helping those of us who chose to miss the early bus tour rush and breakfast a little later (though still well before breakfast closed). We ate dinner in the bar a number of times, and enjoyed both the variety of on-tap beers and the food.
