Stayed for 2 nights in July and was pretty disappointed. The car park is a nightmare. The spaces are too narrow and there are pillars everywhere. While the staff were nice and helpful, the hotel and rooms need a lot of work to get up to a four star standard. Would not go back in a hurry.

Stayed for a midweek break in the Fitzwilton hotel 'yum yum' deal. The hotel is very well situated, the staff at reception very friendly and helpful explaining places of interest and marking them on a map. The room was very compact and very very warm, although bed very comfortable the room was just too warm to sleep. The food choices...

My wife and I stayed for 2 days in the Fitzwilton. The check-in was fast and the room was very satisfactory. We ate in the Chez K restaurant the first evening and the meal was world class, particularly the beef cheek. The service was great, especially Iain. Would recommend the Fitzwilton to anyone staying in Waterford on business or to...

It's not easy planning a driving tour of Ireland for 14, when you know a good location, a great meal and secure parking is required. However from an early contact the Fitzwilton staff were most helpful, including setting aside a secure parking area for our cars under the hotel. We were slightly worried on arrival when we were told our...

The hotel was nice and clean, friendly and helpful staff. Rooms a nice size. The only problem with the room was the bathroom, well the shower was the problem. It was really high up on the wall so you found it difficult to get wet. The food was really good. Well worth the money. The other problem was the area...

We found the staff to be warm and hospitable, the room satisfactory and the restaurant better than we expected! The breakfast was not particularly exciting, only two choices of cereal, and the strangest marmalade. Yoghurt full of poppyseeds - bit weird. Neverthless, we enjoyed our stay, and had a brilliant experience at the Waterford Crystal factory.
