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.

Stayed before the morning ferry. Food was good, room clean but did have a strange smell, which never went away. Bed was comfortable and it's pretty much on top of the ferry port, that's the hotel, not the bed. Staff were not as friendly as we have encountered in many different hotels but not unpleasant. Would use again.

We usually stop here for a meal when waiting for the ferry to Fishguard, this time the place has certainly gone down. Tatty seating ,flies on the windowsills in the eating areas, taps that don’t work in the ladies.
Our meal was okay, the service alright, but a disappointment from last time we visited.

Upon arrival I parked up in what I thought was the back of the hotel. Turns out it was the front and it looked awful...truly awful! A woman was smoking at the entrance to the spa so not a good advertisement for that. I walked into the hotel lobby which was small but a lovely turf fire was blazing. I was greeted by a lovely lady on reception who arranged tea and coffee as our room was not ready. Nice touch. We were led into the bar area and had our beverages. Another lady working in the bar was not very customer friendly. Let me explain. First we ended up paying for the tea and coffee but that was ok as I would have ordered this anyhow. We decided to have dinner in the bar as kids eat free and we had €10 dining credit so it made sense to eat in. I asked for a menu from the lady in the bar and she pointed to me where I could get them myself. My wife, child and myself had a look through. Eventually the lady appeared to take our order. We were not asked for a drinks order or offered water so I ended up getting it myself. I was only short of cooking the meal myself at this stage. The food arrived and it was fine. A good portion and as we ordered. I went up to pay and explained I had €10 dining credit. She asked to see the voucher but reception had it. She asked if I could get it even though it would have been easier for her. I asked a man on reception for the voucher and he said to tell the lady in the bar he would sort it and its fine. I went back into the bar to relay this information and the lady looked at me as if I had asked her for a kidney. She went into the reception all by herself to check this out. The guy on reception came in and told me as I had not ordered €40 worth of food I didn't qualify for the €10 dining credit. I accepted as I thought I must have mis read the voucher conditions but nowhere did it state this so I over paid €10. At this stage I was regretting booking the hotel at all.
Anyhow the room was clean and comfortable and the man and Asian woman serving breakfast were very nice and the breakfast was lovely with a good choice of food. Upon check out there was nobody on reception so I left the key on the desk and walked out.
They need to retrain certain members of staff about customer relations and unfortunately because of this I wouldn't recommend staying here unless its strictly b&b.

Appalling behavior from all staff. Would not recommend anyone to go here for the restaurant, pub or hotel. Staff got up into my fathers face who is in ill health. Not an apology from any member of staff even tho we were waiting over an hour for food.

This is the first time I've ever written a review of this nature but felt I had to warn other people before going. Myself and my partner checked in 2 weeks ago and less than 15 minutes later CHECKED OUT. Faulty towers hasnt a patch on the accommodation upstairs. As you walk the one flight of stairs (there's no lift so I'm not sure if the hotel is disability friendlybthere could be rooms downstairs but I don't know) anyway a stench of old stale air emanating from the walls, the floors just everywhere hits you immediately. Going through the door onto the corridor you can't miss the paint flaking away the ceiling in what looked like an old leak not a new one.

We get to out room and the door is not secured very well and there is a gap, albeit small, into the room. Nothing a half decent should push or kick wouldn't open easily. The room was decorated in a very dated melamine or formica style flimsy wardrobe and table. There was a very worn armchair in the corner. The bed had a very dark brown crushed velvet style throw on it. I went to open the balcony door but paused a minute while I tried to figure out if the dirt on the balcony was vomit or was it from the seagulls. I declined to go onto the balcony. I could see into the yard and carpark of the ferry from the room. My partner sat down on the bed (having removed the throw and washed his hands after touching it) and the bed sank right down, shook, made loads of creaking noises and looked like it was going to literally fall apart.....and he's not even a large man he's 6f 2" and athletic.

We got our bags to check out. The hotel was booked and given to us as a gift by a friend (now I'm wondering was it a prank?) the hotel voucher included chocolates and wine so we took them. A bottle of Wolfe Blass bilyara shiraz and Cadburys chocolates, not a bad,. The chocolates retail at about €3 (they were a small box and Lidl sell the big box for €3.99) and the average price on vinopedia regarding this particular wine is on average €8 to the public.

I neglected to mention when we arrived I believe it was a DJ however could have been just speakers but the music was absolutely blaring!!!! Children running all over the place and up the stairs to the bedrooms. The receptionist said it was a confirmation party. The children playing that's fine but I've never known anyone to have such loud music at 3 in the afternoon....it was literally louder than a wedding band and we love going to gigs but this was deafening. The music was just as loud when we returned to CHECK OUT. I spoke to the owner upon check out who offered is another room but I just wanted to go home and have a shower after being there. She was a very nice lady who told me she had just bought the hotel a week previous. The lady has an awful lot of work ahead of her to bring the accommodation up to standards and I do wish her well. She told me to leave my number and she would contact me regarding a refund. We heard nothing so my friend had to chase it up. The hotel deducted €20 for the chocolate and wine. That doesn't bother me but combined they sell at approx €11 to the public and as a business they would have paid far less. Unfortunately the money just about covered our cost of petrol but we wasted approximately 5hours on the road for a return journey to what was to be a lovely night away.

The very last comment I'll make is due to the location of the hotel and an unsecured carpark im not sure how 'safe' ones car would be parked there overnight.

Response from Deirdre925, Front Office Manager at Hotel Rosslare
Responded 2 Apr 2015
Dear LittleMissIreland84, Thank you for taking the time to post your review on Trip Advisor. We are very disappointed to read your comments with regard to the Hotel. Making such remarks with regard to the Hotel after 15 minutes absolutely astounds me. Our Hotel is one of the oldest Hotels in Rosslare Harbour; hence the reason the Hotel has no lift. In most circumstances the short flight of 22 steps does not pose a problem, especially not for a young ‘athletic’ couple. All the bedroom doors have a double locking device for security purposes and we have thankfully never had an issue with people ‘kicking in’ the doors. All our bedrooms are decorated in contemporary style, with soft neutral colours which may not be to everyone’s individual taste. As we are located by the sea, unfortunately we are subject to droppings from birds – which is beyond our control! Our balconies are cleaned on a daily basis and if you had of informed someone this would have been cleaned immediately. As part of the package you were booked on, Wine and Chocolates were included. The wine placed in our room is the Wine from our in House Wine Menu and is from the Cono Sur range – this wine cannot be purchased in the supermarket or off licence so I would be interested to hear where you can purchase the same wine for €8. Calling the voucher purchase a prank is just insulting to your friend who gave it as a gift. When you arrived there was a DJ playing music for a Children’s Confirmation Party. The music was at a perfectly acceptable noise level, and it was explained to you that this would finish by 6pm which is in our opinion a more than acceptable time. For someone so observant, it’s a pity you did not observe the numerous cameras in our car park, where we have thankfully had no incidents with regard to security. We are always happy to receive feedback with regard to our Hotel, and use it in a constructive and positive manner. We are disappointed that you failed to see the friendliness, warmth and homely feel our hotel is renowned for. Regards Deirdre Duty Manager

I would never stay here again!
+ The reception staff were pleasant and the reception area is nicely done
- We booked a 1 night stay in the family room at Hotel Rosslare to get a good nights sleep rather than taking the overnight sailing home. We barely got any sleep, due to the fact that they had a live musician in the bar from 10pm-12.30am (all family rooms are above the bar) and we were then disturbed by other guests returning to their rooms. In the morning we were woken up at 6am by the fire alarm, which, by the managers own admission, is not an unusual occurence.
- The room was in need of updating and the bathroom in particular fell far short of the standard I would expect in a 3 Star hotel. The taps were coming off and leaking and the toilet didn't flush properly.
- The food was OK, but over priced and breakfast was clearly done on very tight budget, with cheap bread etc
- The worst aspect of the hotel was actually the managers response when I contacted him to discuss our stay. He was agressive and confrontational and refused to admit any fault. There were numerous promises to get back to me, which weren't fulfilled and they kept insisting that we were informed at the time of booking about the room being above the bar and there being live music. This is simply not true. I was also left with no confidence that anything would change as a result of my comments.

This Hotel is perfectly located about 5 minutes from the ferry terminal and that's why I chose to stay here. It must be said that the clifftop position of the Hotel commanding terrific views of the harbour would mitigate quite a lot of what I am about to say if one had a 'sea view' room. I didn't.
I arrived at about 8pm after a week's golf and a fairly long drive from Tralee. I entered the dull, dark, uninviting reception area and was ignored for about 5 minutes. I then introduced myself and informed the rather flustered lady on reception that I had ordered a sea view room. None were available but she did promise to reduce the price of my "rooftop view" accommodation. I then waited about an hour for the Dining Room to be set up for use (there was a party held in the Hotel that afternoon). I enjoyed a beer in the 'other dining room' while I waited (why not serve dinner there?). Dinner was a rather nice fish chowder followed by a medium sirloin with salad and vegetables. No salad. Fairly average steak and no response to my request for mustard until I had almost finished. I ordered a bottle of red wine which arrived and was dumped unceremoniously on the table with no attempt to pour it at all. Amateurs. I took half the bottle upstairs to get an early night and watch the TV but, unfortunately, it never did work despite the 'engineer' coming to fix it. My room was clean and tidy if a little small. My ferry was at 9am and I asked the receptionist for a 7:30 wake up call. You guessed - no such call was made. I had set my own alarm and, after the poor meal the night before, I decided to skip breakfast and eat on the boat. All in all, a poor experience and I would never stay there again. It's just been 'done up' too. What was it like before?

I recently stayed in Hotel Rosslare for the weekend. While the reception was nice and resembled the photos on the web site the rest of the hotel was very disappointing. Our room was very plain, with stains on the floor and looked nothing like what was advertised on the web site. Also our room smelt of smoke for the 2 nights we were there, even though neither of us smoke. Also the pub was being renovated so the only bar was the one in the function room. This did not have the same atmosphere as a pub would have. After viewing the photos on the web site I was very disappointed in the whole stay. It was nothing like I imagined. The only thing that stopped me from giving the hotel 0 out of 5 was the fire in the reception, which was constantly lit. I would have to stay that I would not go back to this hotel.

Freezing cold room, they provided another heater but still didn't sleep a wink. The building is delapidated, the room stank of fried food as did the bed linen. Quite simply the worst night in a hotel me or my partner have had in our lives. Do yourself a massive favour and stay somewhere else. We got up early to go and sit in the car at the ferry terminal as it was far more comfortable and at least warm.

A shed is more of a boutique hotel.

On Thursday last we called in for some bar food and a few drinks before catching the ferry the following morning. Myself and my husband ordered sirloin steaks the meat was tough and the chips were balls of grease and burnt. The chips were simply not for fit human consumption.Found the staff anything but friendly and very unwelcoming. I Wouldn't recommend the hotel to anybody in fact it will be the opposite.

Absolutely right next to it... It's on a hill overlooking it, so down a flight of steps if on foot or 2 mins in a car :)
