Stayed here a few months ago - had a wonderful, generously sized and great value room with beautiful views in a perfect location. Highlight of my stay was the delicious breakfast in the ‘lookout restaurant’ which had stunning views. So good that, more recently, for the night prior to my wedding in the area, I decided to hold a meal...

If you stay here try and get a room with a view. We stayed here for two nights in October and the location is fantastic if you are planning to go to the islands or out whale watching. Our bedroom overlooked the harbour and was large, clean and comfortable and a good breakfast is provided.

Lovely hotel. Rooms overlooking the harbour are stunning but the whole hotel is a gem. Breakfasts are good quality and generous. The hotel is situated in the centre of the village, right on the bay and they could just sit back and be complacent because they have the best spot but they don't - they offer a top notch service....

Baltimore is tiny and The Waterfront is very much the center of activity. The restaurants were both very good and the staff was friendly and helpful. The rooms are somewhat utilitarian but perfectly good in all respects and waking up with the windows open in the morning reminded me of trips to Maine when I was a kid. The only...

Until I was ready for sleep (after a long day of driving Ireland's absurdly narrow roads en route from Dingle), I was so glad I had picked The Waterfront. The location is amazing. Right in the middle of town, right on the harbor, amazing sea views. However, this central location also makes the patio out front the central gathering place...

The hotel staff were very welcoming and went the extra mile to make our stay enjoyable. The highlight of the visit was the food in the Lookout restaurant. Local fish, cooked and served very simply, was delightful. Meat dishes were of a similar standard.Prices were reasonable and the choice was very good. A must for foodies visiting Baltimore.

My first thought of Baltimore Harbour is "this is what children's books are made of". It is truly amazing. The hotel's location is great and service is really wonderful. What struck us the most was how the hotel personally arranged a car seat for my toddler for our airport transfer. We feel very touched and truly grateful for this. The...

The hotel itself was lovely and was in a really good location. Rooms were basic but nice. Very clean and the shower was a decent size. The hotel is located in the center of Baltimore looking over the marina. It was so lovely to sit outside and have a beer in the sun overlooking the water. Views were stunning, especially...

Adding to the enjoyment of our recent visit to Baltimore was the Senior Management of the Waterfront going way out of their way to solve a Business WiFi dilemma and once solved then relaxing in a manner that you can only do from the elevated Lookout Restaurant overlooking the ever moving infinity landscape that is Baltimore Harbour whilst attacking a...
