We booked into this hotel for the fifth night of our trip to Ireland. We choose this hotel for its location related to the Waterford Crystal Factory.
The facility look brand new. However, the location is more akin to a business/industrial park rather then a fine hotel location. It appears to be geared to the travelling salesman/representative. Probably not the spot to spend more then one night’s stay.
It was clean, bright and well maintained. Restaurant/bar off the main lobby. The room was small and even though we booked a non-smoking room, there was an ashtray on the table. (There was not odour of smoke in the room – but it seemed strange that a non-smoking room would have an ashtray.)
The view overlooked the mechanics of the hotel (air conditioning/ventilation) and the parking lot. The rooms on the other side of the hallway would overlook the busy street and other businesses in the area. Because of the main mechanicals located on the roof below our window, the noise prevented us from opening the room to get any fresh air.
We drove to Tramore for our evening meal. A pleasant drive and the amusement/fair grounds at the beach was a lively venue.
There was nothing really wrong with the hotel, but next time we will probably book into a hotel closer to the harbour.
