Dooleys Hotel Waterford City
Room was lovely and very clean. Had a wonderful stay. The only issue I had was noise from the hallway... Unfortunately, there was someone banging either their door or the doors to the fire stairs as they came and went. Maybe you could post some signs reminding guests to be quiet in the hallway and when closing doors.

Good value hotel in a central location.
The hotel bar staff were absolutely fantastic. They were attentive and friendly and made us feel very welcome. The shower could have been better, the water wasn’t very hot the next morning. Overall we had a lovely stay end would definitely return.

Don't stay in the rooms in the front, the road is very noisy and the busses start making noise (beep beep beep beep beep beep etc etc every time they reverse) If I had not had ear plugs I would have been down in reception trying to get another room. At breakfast the 'freshly washed' plates still had egg on them - not good! I won't be rushing back to stay again.

Business trip
Business trip to Waterford. Expensive for an average hotel. Rooms in need of renovation. Not enough staff at breakfast. Took 20 minutes to get coffee. Asked for brown toast and when it finally did come it was white...!!! I wouldn't return here

OK, but poor WiFi
Ok, except for hopeless guess WiFi. Complained 3 times, moved room but still pretty much useless. Wont stay again for that reason.
