Having read previous reviews, I expected a lot more of this hotel. The rooms were old and smelly, the tv was one of those big old outdated things and did not work. As we were with a globes tour and arrived late, I didn't,t worry about tv that night. When I mentioned it to staff in the morning, she said it,s a bi complicated, you have to press this button and that one and two together. I said, maybe you could have instructions on this. She said that's probably a good idea. (We were in Ireland). The room was very noises. Would not stay again, and would not recommend. Maybe we just got the dud room!

Room Tip: Not one in front near street.

Our First Child our Daughter married August 2013, The Hotel was The Most Important part of the planning, we were anxious being our first time, but from our first meeting with Deirdre and Patrick The wedding Co-Ordinator and Team we knew we had made the right choice. We would like to take this opportunity to thank the Tower Hotel and their Dedicated Staff for being such a major part of our special Day it made us very proud. The friendliness and professionalism of the Entire Team has left all of the family with a feeling of sincere gratitude, To the management Team, Thankyou for your attention to detail on the day, The Function room was BREATHTAKING, the service from the Bar excellent with a friendly chat even though they were extremely busy our guests felt very welcome, The Chef and his Team, The reviews from our guests AMAZING, The food Superb FIRST CLASS, The food service crew EXCEPTIONAL,
The bedrooms were Spotless and very comfortable everything just Perfect.
I would Recommend This Hotel 100% to any future Bride, you will not be disappointed.
So once again to the Management and their Team a massive Thankyou.
From
A Very Proud Mother of The Bride

This hotel is in a very good location for visitors to Waterford - opposite Reginald's Tower, a short hop from the Waterford Crystal showroom / tour, Bishop's Palace, etc.
Staff are friendly and a mine of local information. The welcome at check-in is warm and we were helped with planning day trips around the region.
We ate in both the Bistro and Lara restaurant - the food is first class and good value. Likewise, breakfast is great - plenty of choice and lots of healthy options. One of our party is a coeliac and this was very well catered for by restaurant staff. One of our party used the leisure centre - he found the pool a bit on the small side but otherwise, was happy with it and used it on two occasions over the weekend.
I would stay in this hotel again if back in Waterford.

We stayed at The Tower for 4 nights last week and we found our break away very enjoyable, terrific value, friendly service, great location and lots for my girls to do. Swimming pool excellent and the girls enjoyed a swim every day. Had room service with our breakfast on one of the mornings and the food was lovely and hot and on time.
On one of the days had a lovely facial with Sarah in the re>nu beauty rooms, I really enjoyed this my skin felt great and I will defiintely be back.
Overall lovely hotel and I would highly recommend.

Room Tip: Great Value & Great Location

Was impressed with my daughters wedding in the Tower 10th August 2013.From the initial booking to the follow up service close to the big day just perfect.On the day a very large comfortable room provided as parents of the bride.Room had no view but was large with a double and single bed.
Food wine service was perfect for the wedding meal could not fault any part.can only praise the serving staff.
The Tower hotel is perfect for a short break a family holiday or a wedding.!!!!!
A great location comfortable beds great valve tasty meals and best of all a fantastic breakfast with great choice.!!!!
