“Bathrooms in disrepair; noisy”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 May 2012

Our room in general was not sparkling clean, but the bathroom was downright icky. The tiles in the floor were loose and much of the grout was gone between tiles and along edge of tub, so when water got on the floor (our fault - shower curtain mishap), it pooled down between the tiles and wouldn't dry. Musty smell led us to believe this wasn't the first time it had happened. When we opened the window to air out the room, we found that the vent from the kitchen below exhausted right outside our window, blowing the smell of frying bacon in. The door to our room opened to a sort of 2nd floor lobby (not just a hallway) and a large group of pre-teen kids made it their personal playground, yelling, running and slamming doors late at night and early in the morning. Not directly the fault of the staff, but irritating none the less. Staff was accommodating, but overall not a pleasant stay.

3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 May 2012

I recently took my Mum for lunch in the bar of this hotel thinking it would be a nice treat for us both on a day out. I should've realised there was something amiss when the first place we went to sit at had a used tissue left on the chair and they'd only just opened. The service was extremely slow, the bargirl had to leave the bar several times to go to the kitchen to place the order, then to get the cutlery (we had to ask for napkins which entailed another visit to the kitchen) and then for the food itself. There were no lemons for our water as she explained there had been a wedding the day before and they'd 'run out of everything' - no forward planning then! The caesar salads when they eventually arrived were delicious, can't fault the chef. In the meantime, people were coming and going trying to get served - I hope they weren't in a hurry to be anywhere. There was another lady and a guy around but they didn't seem to want to help out. The bar could not take card payments and so we were escorted to Recepton to pay. The toilets were grotty, two of the 4 doors wouldn't lock and there was only one bin between the 4 - not very hygienic. Neither were they very clean.
The Majestic is in a fantastic location, lovely views etc but it lets itself down by poor service.
All in all it was a very disapponting experience and not one I could honestly recommend.

Stayed at this hotel for one night and got a room facing the water.

The lobby area is well decorated. It was warm, cozy, and modern with lots of couches. Free wifi is available (only in the lobby) and the signal is fast and strong. Dinner at the hotel was alright. I ordered penne pasta and the pasta seemed a little undercooked; however, the wait staff are very friendly and accomodating. Breakfast consisted of scrambled eggs, roasted tomatoes, porridge, toast, ham, sausage, and assorted cereals and juices.

The room I stayed in had a wonderful view of the ocean. It was clean, as was the bathroom, but the walls were rough stucco (weird).

I would probably stay here again if I visited Tramore.

Room Tip: Request a room facing the water.

Some seaside hotels can be rough and ready but the Majestic has something rather stately about it. It's in a prime location in Tramore. There's ample parking and the views are great. I find the staff are always helpful and friendly. Evening meals in the restaurant are just mouth watering and if you're feeling hungry during the day or prefer a less formal type meal, the bar food is excellent. When I think of Tramore, it has to be the Majestic.

Room Tip: The bar is at one end of the hotel and if there's live music, it can affect your sleep. So alway...

Stayed for 3 nights for a family wedding. Sea view with 10 mins walk to the beach.
Lovely wedding meal and good staff service. Good breakfast, and a relly enjoyable stay.
Rooms are fine with balcony and a lovely conservatory for coffee in the reception.
large comfortable bar.

Room Tip: Pick a sea view with balcony

One of the most helpful and nice staff that I have encountered in a hotel. They were extremely friendly and profesional. The room was very nice and we had a lake/ocean view. The food was very good in the restaurant. There is not a lot to do in Tramore, but we did enjoy the hotel.
