Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We really enjoyed our second stay at the Tower. It’s close to everything, only a couple of minutes walk to the shopping centre and tourist areas. The food in the bar has been lovely on both visits with a menu that will suit everyone. Breakfast was served in the restaurant with a gorgeous view of the water and the food was perfect, plenty options. The staff throughout are very welcoming and friendly. Will definitely visit again.

Very disappointed with the hotel. Ordered a ‘family’ room…got a ‘standard’ room with two additional single beds literally stuffed into the room. The bathroom was tiny and no where to put your toiletries except for the sink. The Breakfast area carpet was absolutely disgusting. We arrived for breakfast at 8am was sat down to a table where the carpet underneath the table had shrivelled up peas and carrots from the previous night (or nights as they were on the verge of decomposition!) it was the same the following day (the same peas and carrots-see pic). Bedroom overlooked the car park and bin area. From 5.30am to 6.30am, the bins were being moved around, emptied, filled etc….so much noise! The car park was oversubscribed with double parked cars which made it impossible to navigate your way out. The gym and swimming pool non resident users all have carpark access so way too many cars that parked everywhere without any consideration to other proper Parker’s Overall, we found the hotel in need of updating. Window sills peaking, condensation on windows all the time.

Good Afternoon Peter, Thank you for your review and taking the time to review the hotel. Firstly I am extremely disappointed with your feedback as we pride ourselves on our guest service and hospitality. Our standard family rooms have a double bed and 2 single beds but we do have larger family rooms available which are very spacious. Your feedback on the cleanliness of the restaurant is being addressed as this is certainly not the norm and we have an extensive cleaning schedule in place in all departments in the hotel. Our car park is open to residents and lesiure centre members and at peak times can be very busy, we do hope to extend the car park in time making it easier for all guests to navigate it more comfortably. I can only apologise that you did not enjoy your stay with us and if you wish to discuss this further then please contact me directly moneill@thw.ie. With kind regards. Michael O Neill

Just wanted to give you some feedback from our weekend away. Usually these emails are a moan, but not in my case. Had a group booking under my name for a number of rooms, mix of couples, families and some single people. Firstly, from the initial conversations with Tony in reservations, so easy to deal with and nothing was too much trouble and followed up to ensure we had a table booking on the Friday night as he advised it would be very busy. Your reception, bar staff and floor staff were so enthusiastic and nothing was too much trouble. We had no restaurant booking for the Saturday night and you were entirely booked out, but they managed to fit us in. Food over the whole weekend was superb, we all agreed on that. Couple of little things that made a difference, free cordials for the kids (such a no brainer). My wife is coeliac and the bar did not stock Gluten Free beer. We asked would it be ok to buy some GF beers and we were happy to pay a corkage, head barman said no need to pay corkage, lovely touch! You might let your team know that they are doing a great job and our group had a wonderful weekend. Needless to say we will be back!!

We spent 3 nights here recently. What we really loved - Caroline on reception, great friendly service. Lovely room on 4th floor with a river view and also looking over Reginald Tower. Great shower and excellent makeover service. Tasty food in Pier 37 with very friendly staff, Dermot who stands out for service. Fantastic entertainment in the function room with The 11 piece band and Elvis impersonator. What we were a little disappointed with - Breakfast and especially the coffee, asked for stronger tastier coffee and received lovely americano, Hobsons restaurant, lacked the buzz of the bar and while staff are friendly, they weren’t trained properly on the wines. The wine waiter was busy and the wine came late. Also we were shown to our table beside a couple with a toddler in a high chair so we asked to be moved to another table as we had a special date night and wanted peace, this was at 7:30 and at 9pm, the toddler was bored and was let stand on the window sill banging the window. We have 4 kids ourselves so know what to expect. We were surprised at Waterford city in general, it needs a lot of rejuvenating, hopefully the council is busy assessing the dereliction and vacant buildings and supporting any businesses that are applying for permission to renovate. In other cities, especially in continental cities, all those buildings along the quay would have the upper levels lived in. Hopefully, when we return to this hotel, we will see a difference in the area and the Neville Group will have completed their planned expansion.

Was here for the weekend with the lovely Ursula and some of our family. Well, what can I say! An absolutely wonderful weekend in a great hotel. Rooms are fab, spacious and spotless. The food was gorgeous and there is a wide variety of dishes. What really makes this hotel stand out is the music and s the staff! There was live music in the bar both nights that we stayed and it is arguably the best music I’ve had the pleasure of listening to and singing along with. We even took to the dance floor! Whoever manages this hotel must be a wonderful team because it filters all the way through to the personnel on the ground. The bar team are lovely. I have to mention Lewis as well as his colleagues. They were chatty and laughing even among themselves and you can see that they enjoy working there. This is remarkable and extraordinary to see them like this. The reception is worth a visit just to chat with Mammy and Grainne. They are a credit to the hotel. Most highly recommended and a great experience overall!!

We stayed for three night break after getting engaged at Christmas, we mentioned this to Susie who welcomed us at the front desk she upgraded us to a suite for the stay, which was lovely of her. She and all the staff were very helpful during our stay. The food was very good and the accommodation was excellent. We really enjoyed our stay and we will definitely return.

Everything to do with our event went so smoothly, thanks to the Events team. The service and level of professionalism we experienced at the Tower was second-to-none. Aine and Muireann had organised everything perfectly before we arrived and on the day, Michael and the team were on hand to help with anything and nothing was any trouble. Everything was so well organised that we didn’t have to think about anything other than the job at hand. It made our lives very easy. The food was great, and all dietary requirements were clearly marked for the benefit of attendees. In addition, our rooms were so comfy and the rain showers were amazing. Thanks everyone. We look forward to a return visit

Recently had a meal for my birthday in the Tower Hotel. They accomidated a large group of 40+. They set us up in an area where we could all be close together to enjoy the celebrations. Every request was accomidated with out any issue. We had a aray of choice from the set menus and everyone was able to find something they could enjoy. Every person who atteneded commented on how beautiful the food was, everyone got served at the same time and the whole thing ran very smoothly. The Staff were kind, Curtious and very easy to engage with. When the cake was cut up one staff member asked each of the small kids whould they like a peice of cake with a strawberry or macaroon on top which I felt was very nice of her to give them the option to decide when she was already very busy. Some of the guests also stayed in the Hotel and they were all very impressed about the lovely rooms, the style and the vibe of the Hotel. They had never stayed before but they all said they would stay again. Huge Thank you to all the staff at the Tower for going above and beyond to ensure we had a great time.
