"would not recommend"
inconvenient location...too far out of town...This hotel should be 2 stars instead of 3....wasn't clean...rather smelly, dirty carpet....terrible bed, TV was small and was't working properly...no air-conditioning, room over the bar and live music until midnight! would not recommend!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Not close to sights, but was close enough"
Staff was helpful and friendly. We loved The Holy Cross as a place to eat and they had traditional live music in the evening. It was recommneded by staff.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Seems like a change of management just happened."
It appeared they were just putting up the Viking sign while we were there. There stay was great, it was just missing some of the polish, like the not-working tv, or the torn bed linen. I am sure the new management will address this with time. A very good value. Thank you.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"Hard to find - out in Boonies"
While the hotel itself wasn't too bad. It is out on the edge of the City. Too far to walk anywhere, tucked in behind a bunch of car dealers. WiFi worked well.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"In middle of trading estate"
Fine if you need to do any meetings in a trading estate but not very well located for a romantic breakGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Receptionist was extremely helpful & friendly. Cooked Breakfast was rather tasteless. Room was spacious & very clean. Location was excellent for us with a free car park which was an added bonus. Overall I would stay there again but would skip breakfast the next time!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"The hotel was a bit too far out of centre"
The hotel was quite a distance out of th city centre and also difficult to locate amongst the car dealerships. However good car parking facilities and fine as a bse for exploring surrounding area. There was some misunderstanding with our booking terms on arrival which was fairly quickly resolved by Hotels.com, but one member of front of house staff […] was very offensive in her attitude and certainly lacked customer service skills! Fortunately she was in the minority and other staff were friendly. Breakfast was good, with nice selection and bar meals were also good. Rooms comfortable and clean.

"Realy good value"
Location is a bit out of the main town which might be a problem if you are a tourist, but if you are in town or passing through on business then this hotel is great value and has everything you will need. Nice bar, reasonable food, good parking, comfortable rooms and pleasant helpful staffGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"One to avoid"
This hotel looked tired and in desperate need of some money and imagination. It is located out of town amongst a collection of car dealers and retail stores. Although the room was clean, everything in it looked old and faded. Television only worked with a few channels. Although the window was directly overlooked by the mercedes dealer next door there […] were no net curtains or blinds. Two good things: the staff were helpful and the restaurant/bar food was ok. However, I personally would not return to this hotel at any price. One to avoid. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
Good quality mainly, location poor - next to B&Q, Homebase etc. Service good to very good and the food was similar. The bar prices were fair for the type of establishment.Genuine Expedia guest review
"The Ramada Viking, Waterford"
Really nice hotel, good service, good food. Located on the outskirts of Waterford - useful if you have a car (lots of free parking) and don't want to stay in the middle of town. But also, close enough to town to take a taxi for a night out.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
All staff excellent. Cleanliness excellent. Plenty of parking. Location not walking distance from town centre. Only down side was food and drink service in the bar. Understaffed. Staff were most pleasant and professional at all times, but were under serious pressure. Customers losing patience with delays and difficulties in ordering. This was occuring […] each night. Pity. Sort this out and you have the right staff for good hotel. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"l'UNICO DOVE C'ERA LA CUFFIA PER LA DOCCIA."
Nel complesso buono. La colazione non compresa.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Leider war das Hotel in ausserhalb, in einem Gewerbepark von Autos. Auch waren die Zimmer sehr hellhörig, und das Hotel ist leicht zurückgesetzt zur Hauptstrasse, hatten aber immernoch sehr viel Verkehrslärm.Restaurant gabs in der Nähe nur das Hotelrestaurant in gehweite.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Ramada Viking hotel à Waterford"
Bon rapport qualité / prix dans la mesure où nous avons bénéficié d'une offre attractive. Points positifs : - Grande chambre, grand lit. - L'hôtel a un parking - Situé à 5 min. en voiture de Waterford Points négatifs : - le site lui-même n'a aucun charme ni intérêt ("banlieue" de Waterford) - le service laisse à désirer. Ex. : une lampe de chevet ne […] fonctionne pas à notre arrivée. Nous appelons la réception pour que l'ampoule soit changée. 20 min. après, pas de nouvelles, nous rappelons, ah oui, ils avaient zappé, ils s'en occupent... Un employé arrive, il s'avère que l'ampoule qu'il a apportée n'est pas le bon modèle (!). Il dit qu'il va revenir avec le bon modèle, mais 20 min. après (il est désormais 23h30), pas de nouvelles, nous devons à nouveau rappeler la réception qui nous répond "oh, désolée, je pensais qu'il vous avait prévenus : nous n'avons pas d'ampoule en stock (!!!), elle ne pourra être changée que demain". Parfait, on a donc bien fait d'attendre... Le lendemain soir, l'ampoule n'était toujours pas changée... Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

Wasn't expecting much from this hotel. Just the standard room and TV but we found all the staff were very nice and extremely helpful. Location isn't ideal, but we had a good time. Food was good too and the all you can eat breakfast.
"Great for business"
04/13/14 Tom F
I was working locally and found this hotel to be a great place to stay,The staff were all helpful,The rooms Clean and no issues with parking or wifi .The hotel has a bar which does reasonable bar food and a good carvery during the day.There was an issue with my reservation from an online service ,they didn't have a reservation for me but the receptionist took my booking at the rate advertised on the site with no fuss, I have since stayed there again and will do so again in the future .it is a distance from the city center but its is very easy to get to .

This hotel was good, it was child friendly. My daughter was happy that it had a tv. It was really close to Waterford city, about 10 minutes drive. Although there is no pool in the hotel, guests can use one at a nearby hotel, ask at reception. The breakfast is buffet and is nice. It didn't finish until 11 on Saturday & Sunday which allows for a longer lie on. The staff were friendly. We had dinner in the bar which was nice & wasn't overpriced.

Arrived at hotel at 8.55 pm after delayed and stormy journey from Holyhead. The nice young man at reception could find no trace of our booking which I had made over the net. Fortunately I had printed off a copy so the matter was resolved quite quickly. Normally they stop serving food at 9 pm but he offered to keep kitchen staff on if we wanted. The room was clean and tidy, and breakfast the following morning was reasonable. Overall, no more and no less than what I had expected.
"Comfortbale and clean but some issues"
03/18/14 LIVERZEB Dublin
Stayed here twice in March, first for two nights then for one a couple of weeks later for work reasons. Unusual location, surrounded by car showrooms and quite a bit outside the town. Handy for me for where I was going but would not think it very handy for visiting the town. Rooms were clean and comfortable (no complaints although TV could do with an update). Staff were generally very friendly (especially reception) but one rating point was dropped for a rather rude (and slightly odd) barman who managed to make everyone in my party feel pretty uncomfortable. The food was a mixed bag - had carvery and bar food (both very nice) but breakfast was really hit miss. First morning was delicious (especially the bacon) so was really looking forward to second morning breakfast only to find no bacon and no fried eggs (had to make do with scrambled and no hotel gets those right). Third breakfast was a real disappointment - the bacon was overdone, chewy and old and the fried eggs seemed like they had been there since the day before. Also no fresh fruit (was fruit salad) but it i snice to have a few bananas and apples around.

03/09/14 barryjogorman Dublin, Ireland
Room provided completely inadequate. Totally understaffed to manage the crowd. Food not available on time. Tables not cleared. Relied on kids parents to distribute the food. Delays on tea, coffe and milk. Basic food ok. Would not recommend to any other large groups.
"Good functional business hotel"
03/08/14 Nick G London, United Kingdom
Reasonably priced and very comfortable hotel on the outer edge of Waterford. Sitting among all the car dealerships, on an industrial estate on the outskirts of Waterford, it is not in an attractive setting, but the hotel is warm and the rooms comfortable. Good, free, WiFi. It is a car drive to the city centre. They give a free pass to a gym/swimming pool, but again, you can only do this by car. Late bar for residents
"Comfortable Nite Away"
03/07/14 Shirley S cork
Stayed at this hotel recently and had a very comfortable peaceful nights sleep. Room is clean and spacious but I did not like the large open space wardrobe for your clothing and baggage.. Good size bathroom with bath and excellent shower..satellite tv which was a welcome to the basics usually offered. Would I stay at this hotel again when visiting Waterford - Yes.
"Comfortable stay in Waterford."
03/04/14 edward c Watergrasshill, Ireland
We stayed in The Viking for 2 nights on a weekend break. Initial thoughts were that it is in a very strange location, being on a road packed with car showrooms and a good 10 minute drive to the city centre and tourist areas. Check in was very friendly and the room was spotlessly clean with a large double bed and bathroom. A kettle is provided for making a hot drink and has plenty of tea and coffee sachets. After returning from the city at midnight, we were impressed that there wasn't any noise on the whole floor, nor in the morning from the car dealers close by. The mattress was very comfortable so a great sleep was had. A complimentary newspaper is also available from reception. On the second day we went for a walk by the coast and returned for a bath before going out in the evening, having been cold and wet I was looking forward to a hot soak but then I noticed that there wasn't a plug in the bathroom. Thankfully one was delivered to our room within 5 minutes of bringing this to the attention of a staff member, and everything was fine. Wifi was also of good enough quality to stream live football to my iPod as I soaked, perfect!! Another suggestion would be to keep some minature milk cartons at reception as only 4 are provided in the room, so if guests use them on arrival they will need replenishing, this would be easier than having to ask in the bar/restaurant like I did on reception's instructions. In summary,a very nice comfortable stay.
