Athenaeum House Hotel, Waterford
The town was unremarkable but the hotel was absolutely lovely, we are very glad we stayed there.

Needs a complete remodel
Hotel living on past glory. Rooms last refurbished when Hector was a pup. Mattresses were thin and hard. An eight aging to a six.

Could hear people next to me peeing, stayed 4 nights and had room with broken bathroom window and view of parking lot whereas one nighters got the river view, last night in particular was miserable because I had to get special manager permission to eat in restaurant on my birthday but then heard kids screaming and absolutely slamming doors half the night. Nice staff but overall not very good at all!

Athenaeum House Hotel, Waterford
Easy trip across the bridge to the town of Waterford. Not an easy walk, but do able. Not as close as google maps says because of the river.
