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.

Called in yesterday evening (after being ignored for 40 minutes in the Crown Bar) and were met by friendly, mannerly, efficient, smiling staff. We had a nice meal in very pleasant warm surroundings at a reasonable price. Our server, Kathy, was warm, friendly and thoroughly efficient without being in any way intrusive. We will be back!

I have just come back from spending a few days in the Riverbank House Hotel in Wexford. I really enjoyed my short stay and the staff in the hotel are exceptional, from the lady who looked after my bedroom, to the girls on Reception and the staff in the food bar/ lounge. I don't think I ever felt so well looked after in all my stays in hotels both in Ireland and abroad. My room was spacious, and so comfortable with a lovely view out onto the patio garden. My shower was powerful and top class, and the coffee machine was well used by me. The food in the bar was very tasty, reasonably priced with large portions. The scones are to die for!! The service was just perfect. I will definitely be back very soon to do more shopping in Wexford town which was a 10 minute walk away across the bridge. A big thank you to you all especially Jenny who is a huge asset to the Hotel along with all the other staff. Keep up the good work!! Cheers, Anne R

I met a couple old friends here for a catch up. I left my car at a dealers up the road and walked a short distance to the hotel. On walking past it, the side facing the road looked neglected and unmaintained. But that wasn't an issue with me. Maybe it should have been!!. I ordered a wrap which came with chips. All portions of chips were delivered to us hard and cold. We asked to have them replaced. They came back hard and warm. So much so, they were difficult to swallow. The wrap was supposed to be toasted. It was sticky and doughy. The contents were like they had been mashed in a bowl first and then then put in the wrap. It was sloppy and limp. A toasted sandwich ordered by my friend was of similar consistency. The staff were polite but with little interaction. One star is too much for this meal. I am actually turned off wraps after this experience. I will not be revisiting the place unless I hear of dramatic improvements.

My wife and I stayed at this delightful hotel from 23 to 26 October, in connection with the Wexford Festival Opera. The bedrooms are most comfortable - and very quiet if one is located away from the main road, which is between the back of the hotel and the Slaney river. Wexford Town is across the bridge; a ten minute walk. There are pleasant 'country' walks from the hotel along the sea shore. Breakfasts are excellent, with orders individually prepared rather than helping oneself from a buffet. We favoured such an arrangement. The staff were unfailingly pleasant and efficient. Indeed, the friendly and helpful manner in which they conducted their duties contributed greatly to our having a truly excellent - if all too brief - holiday.

Dear SMEEBYES I'm delighted that both you and your wife enjoyed your recent stay with us here at the Riverbank House Hotel and thank you for taking the time to write such kind words. Hopefully if you get the opportunity to return it will be for a longer duration and we may even be able to arrange some of that famous Sunny South East sunshine which has been so lacking in recent week Warmest regards Barry & all the Riverbank team

Visited here over the weekend as My Wife and I were staying in the above Caravan Park, The Hotel was recommended to us by the staff of the Caravan Park. Restaurant/ Bar, Friendliness needs to be improved on in here, Hardly a smile to be seen amongst all staff it’s sad to see for a “Family Oriented Hotel” as described to us. Food was of poor quality and slow to come out pricing was more Dublin standards than Wexford. We both ordered Beef from the specials menu, When it arrived out eventually it was cold so we sent it back to be given back a new dish with the gravy burnt to the plate. The older Waitress who took our order didn’t come back over after we sent back the first portions maybe she didn’t want to chance our meals been sent back again, Same waitress we then overheard given out to another member of staff because a table didn’t tip her.. I didn’t either. Left underwhelmed and disappointed.

Dear Peter I'm very sorry to read that your recent experience with us here at the Riverbank left you underwhelmed and disappointed. As a course of practice we would always train our staff to check their table during our guests main course but even more so in a situation where a guest felt the need to return a product. We have always prided ourselves on our friendliness and attention to detail however like any business we can never take our eye off the ball regardless of how busy we may be or regardless of what ever else is going on. I can only apologies and promise you that I will speak to my team and remind them of these fundamentals. I thank you for taking the time to bring your experience to my attention Kind regards Barry Browne

Once a great hotel, But over recent years has gone downhill rapidly.. Poor Management, Rude Staff Man with black shirt red tie and glasses needs to reevaluate his tone, We can hear what your saying about us when your giving out to staff about us.. Tired Decor, Horrid dirty toilets and entrance.. Sad Times for what once was a fantastic hotel. Bring back the staff that have left.

Dear Joan I was very saddened to read your review and can but apologies for as you described "rude staff". We have always prided ourselves on our customer care and satisfaction and feel very disappointed that we have let you down on this occasion. This is something that I would never be happy with having spent years building a culture of respect and dignity throughout the hotel and a genuine belief that the customer is number one. over the coming days I will have a meeting with all floor staff and will personally bring your comments to their attention. I hope that going forward this is an experience neither you or any of our guests encounter Kind Regards Barry Browne

Hotel is a nice 3star Hotel and is well situated close to Wexford Town.. The only gripe I had was that in the bar/restraunt everything ordered had vat added on even the pint of Guinness!...The explanation given by waitress was that their suppliers want the vat shown on every transaction!..

Dear Maurice Thank you very much for taking the time to review us and apologies for any confusion regarding your bill. While it is true that all products inherently have VAT on them the VAT is not added onto the price it is rather broken down on the receipt which is a requirement on all goods and services. The prices on our menus are the actual prices charged while the prices on the receipts merely have a breakdown of the price less VAT and the amount of VAT charged. However i will liaise with the company who run our till system and see if the format in-which the receipts are printed can be amended to reflect this better Thank you for your feed back and apologies for the confusion Kind regards Barry Browne

A hotel like something from the sixties in need on complete refurb. Dark dreary room with smelly carpets musty wardrobes and a general air of lack of maintenance. Until some money spent on upgrading avoid.

Dear Mr Murran I can but apologies for what seems to have been a very bad experience on your part. While it is true to say that The Riverbank is by no means a contemporary hotel with its genuine antiques throughout i am very sorry that you felt there was an air of lack of maintenance. While this year a large investment was spent in the outdoor dinning area I'm fully aware that in October there would be no benefit to this for our guests, however I am happy to also say that a full renovation of the Bedrooms will begin this January which will see all bedrooms upgrade over the coming months. While I know this may not be of great consolation to you I would like you to know that we appreciate your feed back greatly and are en-devouring to remedy your above issues from new carpets throughout the rooms to upgrading lighting Warmest regards Barry Browne

The place was in a lovely setting with the bridge in the background, we did book the table for dinner for six when we got there we only had to wait for ten minutes which I did not mind , but the table we got was a very small one beside the bar it looked like it was just squashed there, it was a pity as the food was lovely with a lot on the plate with great flavour. But I think the table put me off going again as we did book and people who just arrived got a better one .
