AA Review

This hotel has been family run for three generations. It is situated on the quay overlooking the River Suir at the harbour's mouth. Dinner is served in New Ship Restaurant and casual dining is available in the Dry Dock Bar. Bedrooms are attractively decorated and offer a good standard of comfort. There is a convenient public car park opposite the hotel.

Location

This is a family run, owned and managed hotel ideally situated in the heart of Waterford on the bank of the River Suir. Just a few minutes walk from Waterford's main shopping, business and cultural centres, Dooley's Hotel is close to all amenities.

Rooms

Our 113 bedrooms are of good size and en suite, complete with multi-channel TV, direct dial telephone, hair dryer, tea/ coffee facilities, iron and ironing board, trouser press, voice mail, and second telephone line for computer modems.

Restaurant

The hotel restaurant offers full a la carte and table d'hote menus. The room is quite big and well appointed. There is also a traditional Irish bar facing the quay side.

Exterior

The hotel faces the quay side on the main route through Waterford. It has a traditional facade and modern interior.

Lobby

The new hotel lobby is modern and impressive. It is medium in size with an impressive high ceiling and balcony. There is a small seating area adjacent to the bar.

Decent hotel in a good location. A small bit dated but value for money. Staff were very friendly and helpful. No complaints.

I was very happy with my stay at Dooley's, Waterford. The hotel was clean, comfortable and well staffed. It was a Saturday night so the hotel was busy but I had no problems. Breakfast was very busy but well managed. The only problems I had were other guests chatting outside my door briefly and I felt that the doors leading down to the corridor to the rooms could be fitted/aletered to close more quietly.

This hotel is ideal for shopping or going out in Waterford. While a basic set up its to a higher standard than one would expect given the price and location. Staff are very accomadating and excellent to deal with. Room was nice with all requirements one would expect inclusive of tea/coffee facilities. I was not intending to get breakfast the next morning but as a group who stayed here I was forced to get up and go down. Have to say well done on the breakfast - great choice food very good and the staff were very attentive checking if any additional tea/coffee/ toast required. Overall I would recomend this hotel and if more staff in hotel's could use the same benchmark on hospitality perhaps it would be easier to write reviews like this one.

We stayed one of the nights of the Tall Ships 2011 so the town and hotel were hectic - but the staff couldn't have been more friendly or more helpful and in the midst of the madness they even took time to chat to us about the festivites and enquired how we had enjoyed it. The room was clean and whilst not plush - should pass anyone. Location is excellent so would recommend the hotel to anyone..

The Staff, Food and total ambiance of this hotel is FANTASTIC even though the hotel was full they still had time to greet us by name and ask how our stay was. Nothing was too much trouble. I cannot wait to go and stay here again it was a home from home with that extra fizz that makes a weekend away special
