Stayed for one overnight with family. Lovely evening meal and breakfast the following morning. Cosy atmosphere, so much so we did not leave the hotel for the evening. Rooms spacious and comfortable and good power shower also. Will recommend and would return again.

Arriving late (9pm) due to road diversions is never ideal, but when you are offered space in the restaurant without problem- you realise that booking this charming hotel was a good idea! I would give 5 stars to this hotel but for a very few negatives- but mainly positives. Biggest positive was every member of staff I engaged with....more about...

My partner and I recently enjoyed a fabulous one night stay in this beautiful boutique hotel. The hotel itself was beautiful and staff were fantastic from the moment we entered and couldn't have been more helpful. The rooms were bright and spacious (executive room) and were immaculately clean! Bed was huge and really comfy. Noise levels were barely existent, Idyllic...

We stayed in Anthenaeum hotel recently and we were amazed. This is a very nice hotel situated just over the river from the Waterford City Center. Room was very large and had a beautiful view of the river and the city lights at night. The staff were very friendly. We had a very enjoyable meal in their restaurant. I especially...

Excellent hospitality and comfortable room with lovely view to the river. We stayed on a "Dine and Dream" package which was really good value. The restaurant offers high quality local ingredients cooked with flair - one main course was overcooked and this was sorted out with charm and efficiency. This is an ideal overnight stop around an hour's drive from...

Stayed here last month for a wedding, hotel is in a beautiful setting but lacks attention to detail in both customer service and maintenance. Asked for my phone to be charged during the meal and although the lady took it to reception, when I went to get it 2 hours later it was sitting on the desk and had not...

This is one of the those moments when you arrive home, and the first thing you want to do is to write good review about a hotel that stole your heart, about a place you totally fell in love with! This is exactly the case for me this time. It was a short getaway holiday for me and my wife...

Underwhelmed by the room but it was very quiet and the bed was comfortable. The food and staff were the big highlights - we had dinner on one night and it was really good, interesting menu and fresh ingredients. Staff were helpful, warm and friendly. I would certainly stay here again.
