I am originally from West Waterford but now living in Wexford and I travel back home at regular intervals. Having small children in the car means that a pit stop is a must.
I recently wandered into The Viking Hotel for a quick stop and I was immediately sold. This is an extremely accessible hotel just adjacent to the junction of the N25 & M9. There is a huge parking area both at the front and back, and FREE, which is a real bonus in Waterford City.
We were greeted by a lovely friendly young girl in a very smart uniform, who was putting up the Lunch Menu in a notice Board in the Foyer of the Hotel.
She listed main courses and desserts and before she had finished recalling the Desserts; my 2 children were dragging me towards the Bar/Restaurant. It was a beautifully presented: Carvery which was manned by the Head Chef who greeted everyone as they arrived. The food was delicious, served very hot, and the tray was taken to my table by a very obliging waitress.
My experience in this Hotel was exceptional, and I will return as they get the basic and simple things so right – customer focus.
I loved it all – they have the complete package.
