“Family Gathering”
Reviewed 16 August 2012

We chose this hotel for a large family reunion and couldn't have been better looked after, the food was excellent and the staff very efficient and very friendly, even under some trying circumstances, we would definitely recommend this hotel and will stay again

Stayed there for a night last week. Had a lovely room at the back of the hotel. Got chocolates and a 'Best wishes' message left in my room as it was my birthday which was a nice touch.. Had drinks on the terrace with views to Reginalds Tower. Then we had a lovely meal in Zaks Bistro. Food was very good. All of the staff were really friendly and efficient. Nice quiet place to stay near the city. I will definitely go back.

Room Tip: A room at the back is nicer , but its a very peaceful spot anyway.

A restored georgian house in a beautiful quiet location. We had a very relaxing stay over the August bank holiday weekend while the Spraoi street festival was on in Waterford. Staff and service was very friendly and professional. The food was excellent. It really is a hidden gem and I would highly recommend the Athenaeum for anyone looking for a relaxing break.

We selected this hotel based on the price and the fact that is it a 4 star hotel. We booked this on the spur of the moment. We weren't sure about the hotel when we looked at the website photos. The room was excellent with a georgan window looking out onto grenery and a view of the estuary. The restaurant was the biggest surprise with really excellent food. It is quite a small hotel but very well appppointed.

Room Tip: Book the restaurant on arrival

My partner booked us into the Hotel with Booking.com but when we arrived all excited about our nite away the lady on the desk looked puzzled their was no reservation she said booking.com had a probelm with their webside and while we had a confirmation on our phone they had no record of it !! We spoke to booking.com and they booked us into the Fitzwilton Hotel another 4 star Hotel in Waterford City..We were disapointed as Athenaeum seemed to us to be the perfect location for newly weds looking for a break for the nite....We were invited to have a Coffee in the bar while we waited for the lady to take care of everything...a beautiful balcony with a lovely view of the river...We grabbed our bags and headed off with much regret...even the restaurant looked good...

Can't recommend this hotel enough. Just returned from a two night stay and enjoyed every minute of it. Staff extremely friendly, food was good and the location was perfect. A country side feel to the hotel yet only minutes from the city in a taxi. Only little thing is that the size of the television is quite small for the size of the room, otherwise can't fault this great hotel. Particularly like the terrace at the back of the hotel, looking out onto well kept gardens with the river in the distance. Perfect for a relaxing weekend away.
