"Decent location and roomy hotel."
A little tucked away from the main road but not too bad to find and trip turned out to be very short across the bridge to Waterford and not to far of a drive to Mayfield Birds of Prey which is a must do in Waterford area. Not much for food choices in walking distance, had a good breakfast.

"Nice hotel, uncomfortable bed"
We decided to stay here based off of ratings. The thing the ratings did not say was that the bed is rock hard and the pillows are very old and worn. Also the comforter was torn and worn as well we're the towels with freys and rips all over them.

We were traveling for 2 wks and this was our last night in Ireland. This was a beautiful, historic, roomy hotel room. The staff was helpful and very friendly. Room was huge and comfortable as well as affordable. Food was exceptional.

"Lovely, but needs maintenance"
Very nice staff and good restaurant accompany very reasonable rates. That makes up for some wear and tear issues, but a sway-backed, spring-in-your-side mattress is hard to forgive! Request a modern mattress if you plan to go.

"Rooms need renovating"
The rooms need a facelift. The mattress was one of the most uncomfortable I have slept on in a while. On a side note I did find it amusing that the room had a stereo system that had a cassette player!

"This hotel is a total gem!"
I took a chance on this hotel as the online listing wasn't as complete as I would have liked. Had a small bit of trouble finding it the first time but once there everything was absolutely top rate. It's an old building (17th century) but has been nicely refurbished inside and out. Staff was super every time we contacted them - super helpful and the friendliest you can imagine. Rooms are very comfortable. The grounds are beautiful. But the best surprise was Zak's, the wonderful restaurant onsite. I wasn't expecting much of a restaurant in a hotel with 29 rooms, but Zak's is really a top-notch place for breakfast, lunch and dinner. The included breakfast was wonderful and the dinner menu was unbelieveable. We were a party of four and tried different dinners and they were all absolutely excellent. I cannot recommend this hotel and restaurant highly enough. I would return there anytime.

"Lovely, but..."
Lovely, lovely, lovely! Quiet, well-maintained, comfortable, DELICIOUS food in the restaurant, but... The one thing that took some of the shine off the Athenaeum House Hotel for me was that when the owner or manager was making small talk from table to table in the restaurant, he very obviously skipped our table. One has to wonder if it was because I'm white and my daughter is Black as there was no other obvious reason.

"Waterford Travel"
The rooms were clean and functioning. The receptionist was very friendly and assisted me on directions. The road that leads up to the hotel is in dire repair! The wait staff serving breakfast was slow and took 25 minutes before I was served. Overall, its a good hotel to stay for a night.

"Outside of Downtown Waterford"
Driveway up to the hotel, in BAD need of repairs, but the hotel itself is lovely. Some slight cosmetic damage to some of the walls in the room, but definitely larger than most hotel rooms in the area. The hotel dining room and grounds were beautiful. The front desk/reception personnel were so accommodating with check in/out, arranging for transportation, recommendations for dining and entertainment in the city, and even helped us with paying tolls on their computer.

When from another country driving time is optimal,waiting for car park to open an hour after breakfast to see country is not.

"With a little more effort they could be great"
I hotel is beautiful. The staff was professional and kind. The location, a tad difficult to get to (too close to town to require transportation and a bit too far to walk). BUT, what brought tears to my eyes was that I realized that the mattress in our bed once belonged to my long dead great-grandfather's. It had all the nooks and crannies, valleys, hills and dales, and lumps of grannies famous stoneground oatmeal porridge. Thanks for the memories.

"Meh."
Mediocre hotel, horribly uncomfortable beds, decent breakfast, super friendly and helpful staff. I feel like we were downgraded to the noisy room right by the public toilets because we didn't book directly through the hotel. Not horrible but definitely not the best hotel in the area by a longshot.

"Nice Hotel Stay"
It was wonderful but I was a bit uncomfortable because there was no air condition and we were directly next to the parking lot. The room was too warm and because we were next to the parking lot and our windows had to be open, we didn't sleep very well. I left the hotel feeling very sleepy.

"Nice hotel with amazing food"
The owner was very nice and accommodating. Upon check in he gave us a lot of information on things to do, maps, etc. He was a pleasure to talk with. The room was very nice and clean, but no a/c as in most places in Ireland. Even with the windows open it was still uncomfortably warm. The restaurant had some the best food we experienced on our trip. Eating on the balcony, overlooking the river towards Waterford, was perfect. It really was a pleasant place to stay and just a couple minutes drive across the river to the Waterford Crystal visitor center, etc.

"Out of the Way"
Hotel was in good shape and staff was friendly and helpful. Room was in basement but wasn't a problem as were there one night and only long enough to sleep. Bedspread had huge stains when turned down bed--wasn't conducive to wanting to sleep in it. Hotel was kind of out of the way--nothing nearby to walk to. Probably would stay again only if wanted place to sleep for one night--and specified room not in basement.

This hotel is in an older mansion type home. It has beautiful woodwork and has been maintained in good shape. Bathrooms are updated. Lovely dining room - fresh flowers. Can't comment about the food - we just had drinks - but we should have eaten there. Waterford itself had little to offer.

"Great hotel with views"
While it was hasrd to locate the hotel, limited signage. This hotel was a wonderful stop on our holiday, a very welcoming reception. The room was comfortable, the hotel restaurant has a veranda with a rolling lawn and then woodland that looks out over the river and the city. It was a pleasant evening, so we had early drinks and then later had dinner which was excellent. We mentioned the lack of signs and the staff advised that the town council would not allow more signage, so get good directions and you will be rewarded.

So pleasantly surprised as it was tucked away off the beaten path. The room was lovely, large and well appointed. It overlooked the grounds which were beautiful. The staff was very pleasant, and we would highly recommend dinner in the dining room. Make your reservation when you book your trip so you don't miss the opportunity for a great meal. Top notch. Would stay there again if our travels bring us back to the area. Should note, not within walking distance to town, but worth the drive. We found parking in Waterford not a problem.

"Paintwork and signage need addressing."
The staff and food at the hotel were excellent. However the hotel itself could do with a fresh coat of paint and signage on the Waterford / New Ross road was non existent. The hotel is a little bit hard to find,so I would suggest new signposts. Otherwise we enjoyed our stay and we will be back.

"Just okay................."
All I can say is that it was okay - nothing stood out as great - I went for a relaxing couple days away but came home even tireder! Bed was as hard as the floor and our double bed was 2 singles pushed together so he slept one side and me on the other! couldn't lie in the middle because of ridges. The room was basic clean but the windowsills looked like a fly graveyard and the tops of lights switches etc had a layer of dirt/dust on them - I gagged when cleaning my teeth in the sink because of dirt around the edge of the plug hole - deep clean needed badly!!!
