Athenaeum House Hotel - Waterford
Very Good8.0
This hotel needs to be upgraded match the asking price. The rooms were quite old and it had, I think, a 12 inch TV ! Abit off the track from the main town and activities but breakfast was good.

Great staff, lovely location, rooms very tired
Great staff, lovely quiet location. The dining area and outside veranda overlooking the gardens was lovely. Wifi was not great. The rooms need a good overhaul. Very tired looking

Great Staff, hotel was old
The staff were fantastic, they were very helpful and the food at the hotel was fantastic, but the room we were given was old with peeling walls and smelt rather musty. The mattress was ancient and the springs popped when you moved, and the TV was about the size of a laptop screen on the wall. I hope they do the rooms up soon as it would be a lovely room if it was fixed up a bit.

Disappointing/Tired old hotel
The hotel is very tired in terms of decor and the two double rooms we had on the ground level were AWFUL - the beds wrecked, the bathrooms in dire need of replacement; the bedding was poor - infact the whole thing was AWFUL. I gather from speaking to the staff that some of the upper floors had been refurbished - so I would strongly recommend anyone booking this hotel to check out when the mattresses were replaced! The food was fairly average, but the staff were wonderful; could not fault their service. The other issue that I could not miss on leaving the hotel was the fact that the Fire Door was locked by the disabled exit at the front of the hotel........... I commented on it in a loud voice, and we noticed that the receptionist (who had worked there for 11 years, she told me) went to unlock it. Hmm........NOT GOOD.
