Woodlands Hotel
Ranked #11 of 12 Hotels in Waterford
Reviewed 4 February 2014

The Woodland Hotel is very nice and very well priced, however I was left very disappointed by the quality of food that was available from the hotel. The food was very over priced, I had a starter of chicken wings which were covered in sauce. I then had a main course of "Fresh" fish of the day which was clearly out of a packet. The chips, as well as the fish was very greasy. On top of that the coleslaw was warm and clearly left out for to long. Over all I was left very disappointed by the food, with a very limited menu. I found this to be very disappointing and would not go back again as a result, which is a shame as the hotel is quite nice.

We stayed in the Woodlands hotel on the 30th January.Its a very fine looking building,just a few miles outside Waterford city. A very friendly receptionist Sandra checked us in very efficiently,and in a very pleasant manner.We were on the 1st floor beside lift. We found the room to be spacious,quite atmospheric and comfortable.For once we had more than 1 chair in a double room.There was a couch and 3 chairs,plenty of seating for a small party!! a good sized bathroom. Beds were very comfortable,and we had a pretty good nights sleep. Breakfast was self service except for the service of Tea and Coffee. It was a lovely breakfast,fresh bread rolls,excellent brown bread,nice fresh Coffee,and a very friendly and efficient waitress. I highly recommend this Hotel. We avail of the good value deals for several trips a year,i can safely say the Woodlands was one of the better ones,and i am critical, as i worked in Hotel management for over 20 years.

Me and my wife attended a wedding here a few weeks ago. Even though we only live 20 minutes away we had booked a room and stayed the night and I just have to say how impressed I was with the hotel. The wedding itself was great. The food served was excellent, the staff serving us were brilliant and the band did a great job... everyone had such a good night!

My wife was partiucularly impressed with the really friendly receptionist on checkin (and that for such a big wedding there was still plenty of car parking spaces). Our room was clean and comfortable. And the food at breakfast was just as great as the night before. Would definately recommend!

I was at a Christmas party at the hotel in mid-December, and it was a great night. The Sales and Marketing Manager was very helpful and experienced when it came to organising everything for our Christmas Party needs. Great food, great service, great entertainment and the bedroom was very comfortable and affordable. The next morning, the staff were very friendly at breakfast, the food was beautiful and the service was brilliant.

We attended a family wedding in the woodlands hotel. The day and night. The food was very nice, the staff very friendly and helpful. The rooms were big, clean and very comfortable. Plenty of free parking spaces available. The leisure centre was a lovely treat. Most important the bride and groom enjoyed every bit of their big day, all thanks too the staff in the hotel. Will certainly book again in the future :-)

Went to a wedding at the Woodlands. The staff were very friendly and the food was excellent. I would highly recommend it as a venue. The rooms were lovely and the leisure centre is very convenient. I liked the fact that it is so close to the city centre and within a short drive from Dunmore East and tramore
