The rooms facing the harbour have stunning views and, in our case, a decent bathroom with large walk-in shower AND bath, however: The sound insulation between rooms was appaling. I prefer hard/tiled floors in terms of hygeine but here they contributed greatly to the noise level. A few quid's worth of felt pads under chair legs would do wonders! But...

The Waterfront Hotel is a fabulous hotel with very friendly staff. We had a room overlooking the harbour and you would never tire of waking up to that view. Dinner in The Lookout Restaurant was great and breakfast overlooking the bay was delicious. I would not hesitate to recommend this hotel and hope to visit again.

We come here quite a bit. The staff are so hard working, accommodating and kind. My father is elderly and a handful, and they always help out. The accommodation is homely, the setting is beautiful and everything is so relaxed and happy. It's a substantial drive for us to get here, but it is so worth it. We will be...

We only had the one night here but it was a good experience. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The room was comfortable, spotless and very cosy. Breakfast the following morning was served in the restaurant which has panaramic views of Baltimore Harbour and across to Sherkin Island.

The bedroom was fantastic with amazing sea views of the harbour. The breakfast room also looked over the water. The staff were very nice and helpful especially when my grandmother became ill on one of the mornings. The only let down is the noise in the rooms from not only the bar downstairs and the crowds overflowing onto the streets...

We stayed here during the quiet period and got a good deal so was great value for money. The room was spacious with a very large bed and great views out over the harbour. Service was good and everyone was friendly, downstairs was a restaurant and pub with a nice open fire. Definitely worth a stay.
