"Lovely for an overnight"
Overnight visit. A little bit of a walk to the center of town (5 minutes) and a little buy for thee to Waterford crystals (10 minutes). Room and staff were great, food left something to be desired.

Parking is across the street and it is 3 euros. It is a good location on waterway but a good selection pubs offering a traditional experience were not in the area. Only stayed on night. Lots of traffic in front which made it difficult to get to sleep.

We only stayed here for one night in between traveling around Ireland. Our room was small and not very comfortable. Regardless, the staff was very helpful and the location of the hotel was right on the water and in the middle of town.

"Great location, no soundproofing"
hotel is a little "tired", needs a good face-lift (cosmetic like carpets, paint etc.) My room faced the river (very nice) but also overlooked the road. I could clearly hear the traffic, so much it woke me at 6 am. Double glazed windows but either worn out or badly fitted so a very noisy room.

"Staff could'nt have been nicer!"
At first I was not pleased w/my room. It was to be non-smoking & was'nt. I was about to leave to find some place else, when the front desk manager asked if he could show me more rooms to chose from. He was able to find me a quiet, warm, and comfortable room. I'm glad I stayed!

"Nice hotel, good location"
The hotel is close to the city centre and easy walking distance to all attractions. There are large car parks immediately opposite so parking is easy. I found it quiet at night, despite being so close to the centre of town. The decor is a little old-fashioned but it didn't detract from the quality of the room I stayed in, which was clean, comfortable and with everything I needed. The staff were friendly and there was always someone on duty at reception.

"Very Friendly Hotel"
We had had a long 15 hour journey by coach and ferry from Plymouth, UK. Check-in was supposed to be from 3pm but the reception and housekeeping staff went above and beyond to make sure that we could get into the room early so we could rest. We were very grateful to them. The room was perfect - clean and comfortable with attractive furnishings. We were on a tight budget so spent most of our stay locally in the city centre. the Irish locals were so friendly. One pub even gave us free sandwiches after we arrived too late for a bar meal and spent the whole evening chatting with us like we had known them all our lives. We would definitely return to Waterford and the Dooleys Hotel. Nikki, Plymouth, UK.

"Smooth visit"
We e-mailed ahead to say that we would be arriving just before 12 noon and were pleased that the room was ready for us. . It was quiet, and clean , though with a whiff of fish from the restaurant, if we opened the windows, in the evening! Speaking of which, the lamb kebabs were unbelieveably delicious and i even dreamed about them in my peaceful sleep. Hotel is easy to find and very much adjacent or near to the places that we wanted to visit. The people of the town are very freindly . On the down side, i don't like the electronic pass system and twice my card failed to open the lift or my room , despite it working on the stairs. The lift now gives access to the 4th floor!

"A Nice Hotel to stay in when visiting Waterford"
1. very good location 2. Car park just across from the hotel, 3€ per night with coin from hotel. 3. room card has to be used to gain access to all floors, good security, not required going down to reception. 4. Very friendly staff, family run hotel. 5. rooms clean and comfortable. 6. food very well presented. 7. While I would have preferred a view of the river it was not that important. 8. Excellent breakfast. nice layout of different cheeses and cold meats. 9. The bottom line, would I stay there again, YES

"Hard to Beat"
Located on the waterfront, with a monitored carpark opposite, the only real concern (lack of on site parking) is largely taken care of. Other than that, the room was spacious, tastefully decorated & comfortable. The meals in the bar were delicious & affordable, the staff were friendly & accommodating and the whole place oozed class - our stay was very hard to fault.

"Just off main strip full of clubs and restaurants."
Overall was ok. Halls could use a bit of a freshening up in my opinion. Room was tight and literally had to pick up a baby's playpen and put it on the sofa as it was completely blocking my entry and I couldn't close the door behind me. Breakfast had a good selection and was quite good. Staff were all very helpful.

I had a great 3-night stay at Dooley's and was pleased with everything and everyone! Felt very secure walking everywhere. Shopping was very close by. Took a short bus ride to Tramore Beach: beautiful! This hotel is very accessible for both bus (across the street) and train (10 minute walk away)! All the staff, especially front desk, breakfast host and servers, the pub gang and even the cleaning folks were all friendly, respectful and fun. I could tell they all loved working there!

"City hotel next to a busy street"
My room was on the first floor facing into the main road. As the windows were double-glazed 'regular' noise was not too much of an issue. However, two tour buses were parked up directly outside the front of the hotel and started up their engines at 5:30 am. Sleep was impossible. To add to this, the hotel has expanded over the years into neighbouring property all of it old and creaking. Upstairs guests were up and about from 4:00am (presumably on the same coach tours) and every step was loud. Sleep was impossible.
