Loved our short break in Waterford. Fitzwilton was the perfect base. Easy to get to as you arrive over the bridge, straight over first right and your there. Staff were friendly and helpful throughout. Making it an easy and relaxed time through tout the day and night. Restaurant recommendation from Reception, Bodega to eat; Geoff's to drink, was spot on....

4 stars is a cruel joke. Terrible room . No A/C so windows open got to listen to all sorts of drunks signing on the street and motor cycles all night. Our. Friend had a drunken woman yelling and trying to kick down the door. When we called front desk- nobody answered. Resturant was good.

This is my 2nd visit to this hotel this year and the high standards experienced on my first visit have been maintained in the passing 4 months. Spacious comfortable rooms. TV has less "fuzzy" channels than the standard for Ireland but still not what 1st world patrons might be used to. Breakfast is good and like the bar menu features...

We stayed at the Fitzwilton Hotel for 2 days. It is a clean, neat hotel that serves a hot breakfast - the variety is not much but all in it is good value for money. On the first night there was a party at the bar (it closes at around 3am) so the night owls gave us a noisy night....

Good location. A few minute walk from the train station. Checked in quickly. Spacious room for our girlie weekend! Only negative thing was the heat of the room at night time! Reception gave us their fan which helped the second night though. Good value and would go back!

Stayed in this hotel last weekend for 2 nights. Nicely situated only 5 mins from both train and bus station. Parking wasn't great but we were lucky to get a space.
