I was very pleasently surprised when I had the chance to stay in the Riverbank Hotel Wexford recently. I was met with a very enchanting entrance , adorned with fairy lights and lanterns. This Hotel has a touch of magic about it, with its turf fires and classic decor, its like stepping back in time. The staff were so welcoming, and the rooms were the essence of comfort, and I was not prepared for my own little caffeteria with ground coffee!!!! Really!!! The bar was very atmospheric, and relaxing, with an amazing view of the bridge into Wexford town. I couldnt fault the food either, sorrry if I'm gushing here..... but I really enjoyed my stay at the Riverbank Hotel Wexford.......

We had a brilliant 2 nights stay. Excellent staff especially Sheila on reception. Lovely big bedroom, clean and warm with everything we needed. Great location with lovely views and just a few minutes walk to main shopping area. Food in the hotel was really nice and breakfast had a large choice for all tastes. We will be visiting again and thank the staff for a lovely few days in their hotel

The Riverbank House Hotel offers a "Superior Service" from all of their staff. Right from the moment you step into their reception area, you are greeted with the most friendliest welcome. It seems their goal is to ensure that all guests have a most pleasurable experience. Nothing is a problem and I have to say the STAFF go above and beyond their roles and duties. The food is AMAZING! I HIGHLY recommend this hotel to all parties (groups/families/couples) We most definitely will be back again!

we stayed in this hotel for a weekend getaway. the staff in the hotel we fantastic and highly trained in customer services which was great to have. The food in the hotel was always excellent and was one of the main factors why we chose to stay in this hotel but on this occasion I must say the food we had was not great at all and was disappointing

This hotel is excellent for famlies. We used it as a base for touring around Wexford. The beds were so comforable. Breakfast and the service were first class. We had dinner one evening in the bar and the choice of food was excellent we wanted it all. But i was moreso amazed by the childrens menu choices my son had the chicken spring rolls followed by duck and vegetables tossed in noodles. We will be back great place to stay.

We really enjoyed the stay at the Riverbank Hotel, its so close to the town. The staff are really nice and friendly. We stayed with our 5 year old, he was delighted to find milk and home made biscuits in the room that night. It made his day. Food too nice!! Will be back

Weather wise we couldn't have picked a worse weekend to go away but all the way back home my husband and kids kept saying turn the car around we want to go back to the Riverbank, after traveling for the past 2 weeks with work all I wanted to do was spend some quality time with the family and it was perfect. Sheelagh greeted us on our check in fussed over our little girl making her feel like a little princess we were walked to our door and a table was resevered for our evening meal. The room was fab and comfortable the only thing was that we noticed on the Saturday morning that the shower wasn't working properly and again Sheelagh was fantastic the Plumber was down and fixing it while we were out walking the town unfortunatley it couldn't be fixed as it needed a new part so we were offered a choice of 2 other rooms and we moved across the hall this room was also fantastic. After dinner again the in hotel we were putting the kids to bed and we got a knock on the door and it was a girl from the reception with milk and cookies for the 2 kids we were blown away such a nice touch. On our check out everything was quick and simple and we were even given refreshments for the drive home. The food in the Riverbank has always been outstanding and I've been going there for about 10 years now but this was the 1st time we'd stayed over in the hotel and we will defintley back

Staff very good helpful. A pleasant place to be, relaxing. I dont think you get better for price. Good location for birdwatching! Very near the Slobs. Maybe a three star rating. Simon Miller

My husband and I stayed in the Riverbank House Hotel during the Opera Festival at the end of October this year. We loved this hotel - it's in a great location just over the bridge from Wexford town but its main selling point is the staff. The reception staff are particularly friendly and efficient and call you by name from the moment you arrive. The bar and restaurant staff are also very friendly and all give the impression that they are proud of their hotel and want to do their very best for it. This is very refreshing and works to the guests' advantage - nothing is too much trouble. When visiting in the winter months, the welcoming ambience at the entrance with candles lining the pathway is continued in the foyer with candles on all available surfaces near reception. The open fire which is lighting from early morning is very cosy. The food in the restaurant is delicious - especially the fish which is as fresh as one could hope for. The breakfast is one of the best we have had in any hotel - all hot dishes cooked to order and fresh fish included in the breakfast menu. The room we stayed in was spacious (they do have some smaller doubles) and was well furbished with tea and coffee making facilities. The shower was pretty good in the bathroom but the extractor fan was a little noisy and there was very little shelf space near the sink. Overall, we had a most enjoyable stay and will definitely be back.

Friendly, courtous and very helpful staff. Room spacious but a little dark. Service and food excellent. Would certainly come back again and would recommend this hotel family and friends.

by Mary on Aug 5 2012 14:32

Old style hotel, clean but wear and tear evident,and rooms a little 'musty'.Food very good and the staff were exceptional with their service.

by Elaine Clifford on Jul 28 2012 18:22

Myself, my husband and 2 children stayed here for 3 nights. Hotel was lovely, very clean and just a short walk across the bridge into Wexford town. The staff were all very friendly, welcoming and very helpful. The breakfast was everything you could want for adults and children and again the staff were fantastic and very friendly. Would highly recommend the Riverbank house hotel and definitely stay there again in the future.

by Dave on Jul 16 2012 10:41

by tom on May 15 2012 18:17

The Riverbank hotel is a lovely "old fashioned" hotel. It's a 5minute walk across the bridge to the town.The food is nice and plenty of it!. Only downer is, the bar is more a restuarant than a bar. The bar has only one small telly.

by Aoife on Apr 17 2012 09:54

Very nice hotel. As other reviewers have said the staff are incredible. Very obliging - we asked for a triple with 3 single beds and got it. Lovely cosy atmosphere and very good locations. I would definately recommend it. The only reason it is not 5 stars is that some of the fixtures and fittings could do with a bit of modernisation - some of the door hands very loose, plug in the bath missing etc,

by Ann on Feb 19 2012 10:30

The staff are very friendly and helpful. The food is tasty and plentiful. The location is perfect. The room warm and comfortable. The candles a really nice touch! Definately will stay here again and recommend to others.

by Ann on Feb 18 2012 15:06

A lovely hotel, the staff were really friendly and helpful, the dinner and breakfast tasty and plentiful. The candles were a nice touch and the location perfect. Would definately recommend to anyone to stay here, in fact I think I'll be back there again soon!

I would highly recommend The Riverbank House Hotel, the staff are very friendly, the food was very good and the hotel itself has a great vibe, it felt like home. I spent one night with my mother here and we will definitely return in the future, I have recommended this hotel to friends.

by Beth on Feb 23 2011 17:16

I was there for the weekend with my sister and mother and requested a triple room on the ground floor if possible and got it. Alas the tele was up high and was about 12 to 14 inch and was near the ceiling. When we opened the curtain there was a wall in front of the window. at night if the window was opened we could hear what i think was a generater making a racket up to 12 at night. We enjoyed our stay as we try not to complain. Special word of thanks goes to the staff who went out of their way to be helpful. I would definitely go back but never to room 102.

by John Kiberd on Feb 15 2011 10:24

While the decor in the accommodation left a little to be desired it was clean, well provisioned, and served the purpose. We had dinner on Friday evening and the food was delicious and beautifully presented. Our waiter was excellent and showed great attention to detail. Without exception the members of staff were very friendly, courteous and eager to please. This began with the check-in right through to our check-out two days later - excellent. I have no hesitation in recommending the Riverbank House Hotel.

<p>We stayed in August and had our 2yr old daughter with us, the staff were very friendly!! They had a great kids menu in the bar and the food and service alike were great. The only complaints we would have was our room was just inside the guest entrance in the hallway and we could hear everyone coming and going day and night! Also the rooms could do with a little renovation and as we had our daughter with us we were in early for our 3 nights and the tv was up on a high shelf and the screen was too fuzzy to see from the angle it was at so we ended up just sittig in the room with no TV. Good selection of food for breakfast, and as i said the staff were fantastic and very helpful, great location and would recommend to a friend!</p>

by Mary on Jun 29 2010 23:27

<p>Enjoyed stay in Riverbank Hotel very much. Staff very helpful and friendly. I had a lovely view from my room of the river. The hotel is within walking distance of town of Wexford. The only negative points I have are it could do with brightening up reception area with a lick of paint and as with most hotels I had to pay single room supplement. </p>

by Ciaran on Jun 29 2010 23:00

<p>Service was excellent, food was very good and also verygood value. The staff were friendly and extremely courteous and helpfull.</p>

by mary on Jun 29 2010 22:03

<p>Booked a One night stay at Riverbank having attended a wedding there some years ago which was excellent On arriving to hotel the place was in the middle of decoration and looked very gloomy, our room was very small and bathroom was very poor. Food, Staff and value for money were very good, but overall impression will not be returning</p>

by Joe Ballynoe Cork on Jun 29 2010 19:40

<p>I have to say we enjoyed every minute of our stay in the Riverbank House Hotel, the staff were so nilce and friendly and made us feel welcome all the time. The food and the service was exceptional, we also visited the newly renovated Wexford opera house and this was a lovely walk and walk back on a fine spring evening. I would recommend anyone of my friends to visit and stay here and if you fancy a nice drink they also have a lovely Bar and beer garden for the smokers so all around well done to the managment and staff of the Riverbank house hotel. </p>
