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
