Historical Traveller Reviews of Faithlegg House Hotel
Beuatiful hotel in lovely surroundingsfrom Rowan60
I am a little puzzled at some of the negative comments by other reviewers. The bar is more than one room so certainly not small - and we had a pleasant light lunch there the day we arrived. There was no problem finding the hotel if you use the very good directions on their website. There was a wedding on while we were there; it did not trouble us although I could see that if you were in a room near the function hall it might have been a bit noisy.
We found the staff efficient and friendly. I would not hesitate to stay there again.
Not a 4 star hotel as I know it.from SampleHead
The hotel bar is terrible, small, and hard to talk to anyone because its so quiet that you could hear a pin drop. No atmosphere and not relaxing. Asked for a pint of Guinness and it arrived with most of it spilling down the outside of the glass, not good enough for a so called 4 star hotel.
Even though there is a smoking ban in ireland people still smoked in the only nice part of the hotel, the few seats just inside the front door. Ignorant people.
There is no life in this hotel, there is no where to sit and relax. Dont bother with it. Stay somewhere else.
Also found one of the reception people rather unfriendly at times.
Lovely Hotel - Service needs to be improvedfrom phil-tipperary
Feel the staff, though friendly, were unable to handle the amount of people in the Hotel that weekend and there was alot of "running around getting no-where"
Beautiful surroundingsfrom ash760
Nice but disappointingfrom gnasty71
Overall, its a OK hotel but its old. Our biggest complaint was when we checked in, we found about a dozen flies in our room. Huge black ones. We called the front desk and they offered to kill them us for. Ridiculous, I said and asked for another room. The second room was fly-free. Other members of our tour group had the same problem. The hotel said the flies might have come in when the cleaning crew left the windows open. For a high end hotel, this was disappointing.
Overall, we were not impressed and if it wasn't for the flies we would have still rated it average. The rooms were decent but as I said, a bit older. The lobby was small and cute but the overall ambiance was only adequate. The meals however were pretty good. We did not try the golf course. So overall, it was a decent stay and nothing incredibly bad but a little worse than what we expected and the flies really upset us.
Alright - ambience not up to the job!from Jiimmm
Food very good ... being a chef I can talk!
Golf hotel for sure, so if you are into golf it is probably very good. I imagine they get a lot of tour buses pulling in - on a different rate - since I was not paying the bill value for money was not an issue - however there are better hotels for the money around ... new ones - if that is your thing.
As for the staff ... they work hard and are ok ... something underlying tho' is not quite right ... there is an attempt to pull off "silver service" standards which fall woefully short.
If you are into their scene ... golf/singing old time songs in the bar at night it would be great. I wouldn't agree with previous comments about unfriendly staff, but would say untrained/lacking in discipline for the task at hand/which is a management issue ... the staff are working very hard.
By the way, as per usual, all staff i met were Eastern Eupopean, which makes it less of an Irish hotel. The "cead mile failte" of the Ireland that this hotel aspires to is seriously lacking.
Loved the spafrom monicafriel
I loved the facilites at the spa - especially the reflexology on Saturday afternoon - it was terrific and the swimming pool was the perfect way to start the day!
The golf course looked good but unfortunately we were unable to play due to time constraints - but we plan a return visit and this time we will make time for the 18 holes and the 19th afterwards!
Reception Training would be advisable (especially on customer care and basic manners)
I wouldnt stay here again!!!!
The staff were very unfriendly and everything was an effort. I ordered room service on the 1st morning and couldnt eat it.. the green eggs were enough to put anyone off.. There was 2 large holes in the net curtains and on the towels. One towel was covered in rust stains.. I complained to receptionist on departure but she couldnt care less. I walked out and will NEVER return. I hope this stops anyone from making the mistake at staying at this dreadful hotel.. I wouldnt even rate this 2 star.
Second visit, still greatfrom A TripAdvisor Member
What a spot, Silence and Golf, what could be better!!!
Great, Great Place.
Top Local Tips for Waterford
Jack Meades Pub Great pub near to the faithlegg hotel. Old fashioned bar, lovely gardens and stream and great food
Waterford Crystal Factory I thought this was going to be a waste of time. However, the tour was very interesting. We had the opportunity to watch the crystal being made and talk to the workers about what they were doing. It was very fascinating and I have a better appreciation for what it takes to make crystal.
A traditional Irish Experience There is a pub in the centre of Waterford called T&H Doolan, and on my first visit to Ireland was advised to go there for an Irish Experience if a little touristy. They serve a good pint of Guiness and Irish stew in a traditional Irish pub setting. They also have Irish music most nights. Worth the trip in.
