Viking Hotel Waterford
Ranked #9 of 12 Hotels in Waterford
Reviewed 29 October 2013

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.

We really enjoyed our stay here this weekend. We found the staff very friendly and accommodating..we had emailed ahead and they had a lovely quiet room organised for us as we were travelling with a newborn.
The atmosphere was very relaxed, the barfood was good & breakfast yummy with fresh fruit & pasteries as well as the hot buffet.
Overall a great value hotel just a few minutes drive from the city centre :)

I stayed here last week in one of the executive rooms, which was finished to a high standard and a very comfortable stay. The food served here was to a high standard with plenty of menu choice, so it should suit everyone. Breakfast was a joy, one of the best that I have had in a while.
The other added bonus of my stay here was the free parking and also the customer service was excellent. I would definitely recommend a stay there. It will suit business trips as well as family trips due to its easy location and excellent facilities which cater for all.

We stayed in this fantastic hotel for two nights (next time it will be longer!!) for work. Food was lovely, as was the service - breakfast and dinner on the two nights. The room was comfortable and had everything we needed to hand. The staff were ever pleasant and helpful. The room was comfortable and clean.

I live localy and pass by the hotel a lot for work. I find the hotel well located for having good food and getting back on the road. I had a sirloin steak this week and to be fair it was the best I have had anywhere in a long while. And as always there is no messing with the service, from great staff.

We were a group of golfers over to try some of the great golf courses in the Waterford area.

From the check-in to departure the staff could not have been friendlier or more helpful, The rooms were great as was the food and the bar was a very welcoming place to come back to after a long day.

Excellent location for the main roads and for the short journey into town to explore.

Would be happy to come again.

We booked with Livingsocial for 1 night and got bed and breakfast and a bottle of wine if dining in the restaurant for €49, great value. There was no late checkout included but on request it was no problem whatsoever, the beds are comfortable and rooms spacious. If I had 1 complaint it could be that 1 or 2 of the staff could have been a little friendlier but overall a nice and pleasant stay and would travel here again.
