Myself, my mum and sister In law arrived here around 12.45 on a Tuesday afternoon, hoping to have afternoon tea which we have done numerous times before without booking and never an issue.

Big refurbished rooms, good common areas, good food and a very nice location on the river a little bit out of the main town. The main Waterford Crystal factory is now gone but there is still some crystal made here in a modern building which makes for an interesting tour.

We only stayed 2 nights here but would have liked to stay longer if we had time. About a mile out of Waterford it was extremely comfortable, a good size room, good beds, powerful shower and large soft towels. Lovely gardens and pleasant communal rooms.

Came here for a meal after a recent funeral. The parking situation left a lot to be desired as the available car park spaces were hopelessly outnumbered by the cars looking to park. As it was I had to park a distance away and walk through puddles on a raining afternoon. The staff seemed ill prepared for such a large...

Dear Thank you for your review, I am assuming you are referring to the late Mr Victor Merriman funeral, the family choose to come to the Athenaeum House Hotel because it holds special memories for them as a family and their late father Victor.

I stayed here for 2 nights over the Easter holiday with my family, The hotel is located on the opposite bank of the river, so the view of Waterford is very nice, but it was quite tricky to find and you do wonder where on earth you are going. To get into the city itself is a 10 minute drive....
