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.

Beautiful Hotel which was immaculately decorated and spotlessly clean. All staff were very friendly and couldn’t do enough for you. The breakfast was so nice and well worth the money being a buffet style breakfast. The bed was super comfy and the shower was hot and powerful. Would highly recommend this hotel and will definitely stay here again.

Very well treated in reception, bar and dining areas. The rooms are great with very comfortable beds. Food was also excellent and good value deal for overnight DB&B. Car Parking area very tight. Outside of hotel does not look great but inside makes up for this.

I was really disappointed with our stay here. The hotel is very run down. I have never written a bad review but this time I feel I have to as I paid nearly 200 euro for one night for my husband's birthday. The room was way to warm. There were marks on the walls and the radiator beside the bed was all marked. The sheet on the bed was not put on right and it is the first time I've ever stayed in a hotel when the bed sheets were put on so badly. The pillows were lumpy. There was no water in the room again I never experienced anything like this where no water was left in the room. The meal in the restaurant was also very disappointing. We got wings that were way too spicy and the pizza was so dry and just really not nice. Very dissapointing overall and would not stay again

Dear Guest, Thank you for your feedback, however I am sorry to read your comments that the hotel is run down, as we have recently completed a refurbishment of all guest bathrooms and our ground floor pubic areas. I will certainly pass on your comments regarding the bedroom décor to our Accommodation manager and Maintenance team, this is not an impression we expect our guests to receive. I have also noted your comments regarding the bed linen presentation and I assure you we will bring this to the attention of the Accommodation team. Your comments regarding your meal will be passed to our head Chef, we apologise that our food did not meet with your expectations, again this is not the experience we wish our guests to have. Once again, I am sorry that you were disappointed with your stay. Kind regards Sandra McGrath Sales & Marketing Manager

We just returned from a one night stay (room 406). Parking availability was very welcome on arrival albeit somewhat confusing on how we enter the hotel once we parked but we got there with the help of a friendly gentleman who passed us in the car park and directed us ( he works for hotel) Check in was very swift and efficient albeit bordering on emotionless. We took lift to our room and had to go through a few doors to get to our room. We could see that the carpeted area in the landing areas was relatively new or very well kept but the doors look very tired and I genuinely believe that if painted white would lift the complete areas. Our room was spotless and had everything you would need. We had dinner that evening in the hotel bar and we were served by very efficient and friendly girls , the food was delicious (albeit seafood pie was much too hot but tasty when cooled down). The bar area is a lovely space , beautifully decorated. Breakfast was self service and very tasty too. Overall we enjoyed our stay and we think with some modernisation/ decoration of the communal areas would make a big difference and a more positive impression.

I really enjoyed my stay at the Anner Hotel Thurles - very friendly helpful staff - comfortable room, comfortable bed and a spacious room. I had food in the bar and it was very nice. The breakfast in the restaurant was top class with a very good choice - it is a short walk into Thurles Town

Breakfast was lovely, our room was really nice. We loved the fact that the hotel is so close to the train station and everything else. However, we had a welcome plate in the room with some Chocolates and fruit, but the fruit was mouldy. The pillows were also not great. They were fluffy but too soft. There were extra pillows in the room that we used but a thinner harder pillow would have been appreciated as an option.

Dear Baulina, Many thanks for taking the time to post a review following your stay. Delighted to read that your room was really lovely and the location was perfect for you. I'm so sorry to read that the fruit on your welcome plate was not fresh and apologise sincerely for this. I'm also sorry but our pillows are hotel standard and we don't have a variety of fluffiness available in stock in the hotel as they are all the same. Thanks again for your feedback.

Lovely hotel, just over the bridge in Waterford. Staff are very friendly and efficient. We had a snack and some drinks in the bar, all good. Rooms are spotless and well maintained. Beds are comfy. Breakfast is good with the usual options and we appreciated the late breakfast option until 11am too. Hotel car park is very tight but we found space. Wifi can be a bit hit and miss. Location is good with just a short walk to the main shopping area. Would recommend. Thanks...
