The Tower Hotel, situated at the river and in front of the Tower, is at a nice location. The hotel itself however is quite outdated. The bathrooms and furniture were old and the beds not very comfortable. Unfortunately we had a room on the inside and the view was terrible. The hotel has a parking ... but the parking was full when we arrived. There is a public parking close to the hotel ... but also this parking place is usually full. The hotel has a nice bar with view on the river. Breakfast was simple. Irish buffet with some additional items. Staff was friendly. This hotel was also rather expensive. To conclude, it is a nice location, but could do some renovations.

Room tip: Take a room with a view on the river or city.

Dear Thomas S,

Thank you for taking the time to write a review on your recent stay at the Tower Hotel .
I was glad to read that overall you enjoyed your recent stay. I'm glad you enjoyed our newly renovated Pier 37 bar with views of the Marina. Apologies that you didn't find the room up to standard but works are currently underway to renovate all our bedrooms to a 4 star rating. We are one of only a few hotels in Waterford that offer free car parking subject to availability and we do offer an alternative in a nearby carpark.

We look forward to welcoming you back to the Tower hotel in the near future.

Yours in service
Seamus O Carroll

Just back from The Tower Hotel. Had a wonderful stay. The room was very spacious with a super comfy bed. Very friendly staff and a great breakfast to start the day.

It was our anniversay and having arranged flowers with a local florist, was pleade to see them already in the room with a card from the hotel managment along with some choclates.

Very busy but not crowded.

Overnight stay to visit Waterford Crystal which is a few yards down the road. Our room was ok, tired decor but a comfy bed. The room overlooked the road and water, but double glazed so not noisy. Breakfast was in their Hobsons restaurant with spectacular views over the water. Huge choice for breakfast with great service. All staff were helpful and courteous and it’s only the room decor that lets it down..
