Before we arrived I was emailed to ask the age of my children for the family room I booked. Didn’t think anything of it until we arrived to check in & were told no family rooms but we would be put in adjoining rooms. Kids liked the idea but the doors between the rooms were heavy & only had handles one side so we had to prop them open with chairs so if the children needed us they could easily get to us (both under 10). Other than that a fab hotel, great breakfast, quiet for the most part & good location. Stayed for 4 nights & only one night we didn’t manage to get parked in the car park but Merchants Quay is a short walk & good value parking. We didn’t use the restaurant for dinner but we ate in the bar which was fab & good value for money but the kids portions - well an adult would struggle to eat all that! On the whole I would recommend the hotel though!

Room & bathroom were both spotlessly clean and the bedroom was very comfortable. The room has everything you need: safe, tea making facilities, hair dryer. Hotel is in a good location, it's nice and quiet but walking distance to shopping area and Viking triangle. Breakfast was only ok, not a huge selection.

Nicely decorated hotel in the centre of Waterford City. Bedrooms spacious and clean. The restaurant was closed on Sunday and Monday nights so had dinner in the bar, menu for the restaurant also available but not a big selection, nice food but very slow service waited 20 minutes to be served dessert. Disappointed with breakfast not a great selection of food maybe because it was January and not many people staying in the hotel.

A comfortable hotel with friendly staff. The dinner and breakfast were very good. Car parking listed but full when we arrived and had to park in the public car park on the harbour. Cheap parking at €4 for the 24 hours. Walking distance to the town, sites and shopping.

Stayed here for the weekend recently. Very enjoyable stay. The ambience in the hotel is excellent! Rooms are spotless. Hotel is ideally situated within walking distance of the shopping area. There is a small car park beside it. The food was exceptional. Service in the bar area was a tad slow. However, it was a busy Saturday night and only to be expected. We will be back again.

Lovely hotel with a great big room for us and our children. Perfectly situated within walking distance of shopping. Food in bar lovely with 10 % off and breakfast delivered to our room for four of us for just 5e which was really resonable. We expected to pay 5e each so it was a great surprise. We had a lovely night and will return again.

I was down for work recently and booked myself into the Fitzwilton. I was not disappointed. Really lovely and welcoming staff, spacious room to myself and within walking distance of the city centre. Breakfast in the morning was a great mix for Irish fry and continental with very attentive staff. My only issue would be the car park. Very tight spaces and not that many spaces either.

Stayed here last night and I have to say it's one of the finest, cleanest and well run hotels I've been at. Rooms immaculate, breakfast is excellent. Highly recommended. Staff are all very friendly and welcoming and I will definitely be returning.

Super Hotel absolutely fantastic stay my partner and I had here. The Hotel is very modern and clean. The Staff were all extremely pleasant and well-mannered. The general aroma in the whole hotel was very nice and relaxing. The Hotel was very warm but not too warm even when it was freezing outside. Rooms were very large and spacious with a brand new TV. Food in both the Bar (Met) and the Restaurant (Chef K) was absolutely second to none. Had a beautiful dinner in the Bar it was even so nice we tried it twice. Large servings which were well presented and very reasonably priced. Breakfast was top class with a large buffet selection of food and tasted top notch. Can't say one bad word about the experience a superb hotel at average prices. Would 10/10 recommend a friend and go back there myself.

Hotel was really enjoyable and very modern and close to the city centre. Staff were very friendly and helpful. Food was very tasty in both the met bar and chef k’s restaurant. Breakfast was buffet but had a mixture of everything from hot Irish breakfast to healthy options and cereals and a selection of breads and pastries. Such a good weekend away. Wouldn’t be long about suggesting it for anyone who wants a quiet weekend away with their partner.
