Stayed here in August for the 2nd time we previously stayed in July and once again we were not disappointed. Our checkin was amazing the guy that checked us in welcomed us back. They guy in the bar cant remember his name was super friendly and chatty in these strange time which was so nice. Breakfast was fabulous as it was the first time we stayed. We cant wait until we can come back and visit again. My 2 girls said it's their favourite hotel. Really looking forward to returning

I visited on Friday 18.12 with my wife and Daughter. We stayed in Room 219. The room was a big let down. It had a tag on the door saying the room had been cleaned for us but when we went in there was someone's old socks under the desk. The ledge above the bed was covered in dust and the bloody pillows were awful. The bathroom was a disaster. The sink has a plug in it that opens and closes with a lever. It was not working and it was in the closed position. I had to pry it open with a tea spoon. Secondly the toilet was broken and once you flushed it , it kept refilling itself without stopping. I had to open the top of the cistern three times during the night to stop the water constantly running. The temperature control on the shower was very hard to turn down and the hose was leaking. For a four star hotel that has not been closed during Covid it was really poor. The Staff (especially a young girl called Jessica) were fantastic and the food was great. The breakfast was brilliant. I spoke with Elaine the duty manager the following morning and when I explained our night she apologized and told me she would take it up with housekeeping. No mention of a refund or a token for our inconvenience, nothing just a sorry and goodbye. I stayed here a few years ago and the place was brilliant but it has gone downhill in my view now.

Myself and a friend booked the Fitzwilton for a one-night stay as a base for our Waterford adventures; the Greenway cycle, beach swim at Dunmore East and hiking at Mahon Falls. On hindsight, Dungarvan may have been a better location for our trip but that’s neither here nor there when it comes to the hotel review. I simply cannot fault the Fitzwilton for standard and service. Trish checked us in upon arrival and was so helpful in answering my, frankly silly, questions. We had dinner in the hotel which was prepared quickly (which usually is a sign of sub-par food), and was delicious. Fine big portions too! Breakfast was also great, albeit a little awkward having to request items from staff such as hot drinks, juice, non-dairy milk, etc. I can’t imagine how much the serving staff’s workload has multiplied, but they were so pleasant throughout. What struck me as unusual was that there was still a buffet element to breakfast whereby you grab a plate and fill it with hot food from the covered platters. We all handled the same tongs/ladles. The loose fruit was all bagged individually in plastic bags, which for me trying to be more environmentally conscious, seemed unnecessary, as one can handle the “naked” fruit as easily as handling a plastic bag containing said fruit. All in all a great stay, room was lovely, beds comfortable, shower is DIVINE.

Response from Mr Geoff Dawson Dawson, General Manager at Fitzwilton Hotel
Responded 21 Sep 2020
Hi Laura, Thank you for taking the time to review your enjoyable stay with us. I will be more than happy to pass your kind words to Trish on reception and all our amazing team in the restaurant and kitchen. Regarding the buffet area, all tongs/ladles are covered in a microbial film which kills 99.99% of bacteria on touch. We have this microbial film on numerous high touch points throughout the hotel such as elevator buttons, door handles etc... as an additional measure of safety for our guests. I am delighted you had such a great stay with us and we hope to see you and your colleagues again very soon. Kind Regards, Geoff Dawson General Manager

Really nice hotel. We booked so we could cycle the Greenway. The staff were so helpful and helped organise bikes for us. Stayed for 2 nights - had a nice large room. Breakfast and dinner were really good
