We stayed at several hotels and B&Bs during our 3 weeks in Ireland. This was the best hotel and had the best breakfast of all the places we stayed. We had a quiet room that looked over the river. Nice

charming hotel in the city centre. Spacious rooms which are newly decorated. Bathrooms are all newly refurbished. Excellent breakfast. Friendly staff and a lovely bar area with live music. The hotel is family run and within walking distance of all city centre amenities including Waterford Crystal.

Quite difficult to find on google maps as went past it initially as sign post wasn't well displayed. Comfortable Beds and rooms adequate. Reasonable location and pleasant breakfast. Car park tight as not many spaces.
