It had questions about working life in the Granville Hotel and we were delighted to reach the scores necessary to be one of the first hotels in Waterford to be deemed a great place to work.

Reviewed January 2023:

"I have been a guest at the Granville for two days now. Half-way through my stay, I cannot resist the temptation to review this establishment, with which I am so delighted.

The hotel, conveniently located on Meagher Quay close to all of the city's major attractions, is steeped in history. Home to Irish patriot Thomas Francis Meagher and visited by both Daniel O'Connell and Charles Stewart Parnell, it retains a magical atmosphere.
My classic room faces Waterford's marina and is warm and comfortable, with a large wardrobe with safe, tea/coffee making facilities, flat-screen tv and a speedy Wi-Fi connection. Room service is impeccable: the room is so clean you feel at home the minute you step into it.
Breakfast is very rich and one help themselves to Continental options (wide range of cereals, croissants, soda bread, yogurt as well as high-quality jam and honey) and/or choose from a plethora of cooked-breakfast dishes, including Waterford-style Eggs Benedict, grilled plaice with lemon-infused butter, a local charcuterie and cheese platter, plant-based breakfast (vegan-friendly and served on toasted blaa) and, needless for me to say, the full-Irish.
Included in my reservation package was a three-course dinner, which I thoroughly enjoyed, with soup of the day, grilled fillet of salmon and warm Christmas pudding with vanilla custard and whipped cream, with complementary tea/coffee. Mouth-wayering.

A real asset for the Granville, last but certainly not least, is its staff: full credit to Erin from the reception team, whose kind and friendly nature I well and truly appreciated, and well-done everyone at the restaurant, looking after me with care and attention. I find the Granville to be GREAT value for money and would recommend it to anyone visiting the sunny south-east of the Emerald Isle!"

"It has that indefinable ambience of the well-run privately owned hotel, the sense of being cosseted in an old fashioned way unlike the slick informality of modern concept establishments. The mature Irish staff with young local staff working alongside - they're what Irish hospitality used to be about... chatty but not intrusive, charming and full of local recommendations for us to do. We loved it.

Whether for business of pleasure this is a lovely plave to stay and it makes a very comfortable and friendly base for exploring thet area."
