No No for business traveller

The positives: Nice location, beautiful view, comfortable rooms, clean hotel, parking available, close to city center. Polite but laid back staff The nightmares: The cleaner forgot to change towels he/she took all the used ones and did not put up fresh. (day one) so I discovered it just after shower, so wet and call to reception and towels turned up WIFI connection gone at (Day 2). I run to managers and duty persons, and got different answers so clear it was not their priority. After 24 hours without internet still blame game, network. Eirecomm, central station problems etc etc. They had a function and that was the staff priority, the few guest was not really. The function lasted till 05:00 a.m. and some had no volume control at all so rest is gone with the wind for guest. 15 Euro price for a small breakfast is expensive. At this time of the year the hotel clearly has not enough guests so the focus on function. Thi is a 4 star hotel so all those catalog of errors are unforgivable. Advice to business traveler is avoid, for weekend city break it is fine.

Very disappointing

Stayed here for 3 nights,booked a executive room and we were extremely disappointed in the room.All I can say about the room is if that's what they call an executive room then I would hate to see their standard rooms ! They say the executive rooms have a king size bed,it is in fact 2 single beds zipped together to make it look like a king size bed,it was extremely uncomfortable ! I don't think they could have found a smaller sized TV if they tried and it was also about to fall off the wall bracket and had about 4 or 5 channels on it. Each morning the heating would come on and there was non stop loud bangs coming from the pipes so no need for an alarm call with this going on. On the Saturday night there was apparently a "conference" going on and at 2:45am Sunday morning we and all the other guests were woken by firstly a drunken woman trying to sing into a microphone and after that idiot got off another one took to the stage,this all went on for 20 minutes,to which the staff did nothing about ! We were supposed to get a complementary drink on arrival which didn't happen either. Definitely will not be back here,not worth the money for these supposed executive rooms as there is absolutely nothing executive or superior about them ! it was a bog standard B&B .

Beautiful - hard to find hotel

Our GPS (Garmin 2577) first sent us to a dead end residential road that was hard to get turned around on. We had a brochure with GPS coordinates (which seems to be more common in Ireland than actual addresses) and that also took us to the wrong location. Once I found the hotel we were warmly greeted and welcomed into a very nice room. The room was extremely clean. The only issue I had was that the room was a bit warm and we had to open the windows to help cool it down - as the room had no AC. The breakfast was fantastic with a full Irish breakfast and a buffet. We did not really explore the area too much but it is several miles away from the city center area. The hotel did have a restaurant but it is a bit pricey.

Time-saving tip: Not Applicable

Try to arrive during the day - trying to find the hotel in the rain at night was not much fun.

BIG MISTAKE!

We booked in for one night. As soon as we arrived in reception we realised that we had made a mistake -- we should have stayed for several days. The reception was friendly and helpful. Our room was perfect. The dining room is beautiful with excellent staff. The food was in keeping with the rest of The Athenaeum. This first class hotel is a very convenient hour or so drive from Rosslare Ferry Port and makes an ideal first stop in Ireland. It sets a standard that most hotels will find hard to equal. Thank you.

A city hotel in the countryside.

Hotel staff were friendly and helpful. Food was excellant, and because the hotel is not in the middle of the city, it feels as though you are at a country hotel, although are about a mile from the city centre. If I was in Waterford again I would stay here.

Apart from the hotel food which was excellant, try going to McCleary's restaurant as their steaks and salmon dishes are excellant.

don't stay for the view

The hotel was fine however based upon the description, I thought you could actually see the river from the hotel which is not really the case. If you can see it, it is in the far distant.
