The Anchorage Guest House is located on the Quays in Waterford, 2 minutes from the bus and train stations, so the location is ideal. The staff are very friendly, the breakfasts are great and the room rate makes it excellent value.

I recently stayed a night here while visiting my husband in the hospital. I found the owner/manager friendly, polite and very helpful. The room was a family room, very reasonably priced. I slept like a log, feeling comfortable and safe, a priority for me when traveling alone. The room was lovely and warm, coming in from a very cold night...

My husband and i spent the past 12 days traveling through Ireland. Waterford was one of our stops. We showed up without having booked accommodations, but knew from researching online that there were a variety of places to stay. A staffer (very helpful) at the tourist info center directed us to the Anchorage. We walked over, rang the bell and...

This property does not look anything like their website photos. Read independent reviews of this guest house before considering it. We would not return. The location appears convenient but this is negated because parking close by is sparse or expensive.

On the plus side - the location is close to major attractions, the owner was very helpful (except when I asked for ice and was told he didn't have any, despite the fact that I had been given some the previous evening), the breakfast was good. On the down side - everything else! The place was dark; carpets were either...

Three of us booked into the Anchorage and found the place value for the money we paid. The entire place was clean and the breakfast was more than we could have asked for. A very pleasant Michael took my booking; but was away when we arrived. However, his staff did him proud and we were very impressed.

I stayed at this guest house this weekend with some friends during a roadtrip. I have to say that I am glad we only had to spend one night there. The owner, Michael, is super friendly, and it is great that there are accommodations for people traveling on a budget. For this price, you get what you pay for. The...
