We are priviliged at the Tower Hotel to play host to some of Waterford's finest weddings and it gives us great pleasure to receive such lovely feedback from our wedding couples. We enjoyed looking after each of you. 

Paul & Claire Fennelly - August 2017

My wife and I got married in the Tower Hotel on the 18th August 2017. I cannot speak highly enough of the Tower Hotel Waterford, from the moment we first met Deirdre and her team.

The booking and planning service was very helpful. The fact we live in the UK could have made this awkward for us, but that could not be further from the truth. Nothing was too much trouble and either Deirdre or Aine were always reachable. We had a couple of sit down meetings with the ladies on different occasions on the run up to the wedding. Our individual preferences and little touches that we wanted were not any hassle and we were made feel very welcome and comfortable from day one.

On the day itself the arrival was exceptional as we were welcomed to the hotel by the General Manager and offered a glass of bubbly as soon as we got out of the car! The level of service by the bar and catering staff was top notch, this was a reflection of not just my wife and I, but all the wedding party and guests alike.

The wedding reception set up was exactly how Claire had imagined and wanted it to be and the place was immaculate. Recently renovated there was a sense of pride in what the hotel had prepared for us. The food was delicious and again this was reciprocated by the entire wedding party. Vegan & Vegetarian guests were very happy with their options. Second helping for those who wanted was not an issue and everyone was very well looked after.

The Honeymoon suite was fantastic, very comfortable and fantastic little touches throughout the room. The breakfast the following morning was, again, delicious and just what was needed after such a great night in the residents bar the night before!

Donna & Chuck - July 2017

Well what can I say - it was faultless from start to finish. From the very first day we went to put our deposit down and all the meetings we had over the 18 months leading up to our wedding, the Tower were so professional and attentive to everything. The ladies in events also gave me some tips on other aspects of the wedding which helped me a lot. On the day of the wedding, Patrick and his team were just amazing - so friendly and helpful all day and night. We didn't have to do anything, everything ran like clockwork and Patrick liaised with the vendors that were on site for us also, which I couldn't be more grateful for. The food was just lovely and went down a treat with everyone - it was piping hot and very tasty, some people even had seconds of their dinner and the vol-au-vents. The service was extremely fast for each table which meant that everyone was eating at the same time. 

Our wedding was the first wedding to be held in the newly decorated ballroom and it was just fabulous. The new lighting, mirrors and decor just set the room off completely. The room set-up was great. No one was too far away from one another which meant the guests could chat to each other during dinner. The evening food was delicious also - we went with the bacon blaas. The bar staff were quick in serving people, there was never a queue to get a drink.

The bridal suite overlooking the River Suir and Reginald's Tower was a lovely room, spacious  and also very quiet . Our guests rooms were lovely also and everyone was very happy with them and also their breakfast the next morning. We had 83 guests at our wedding and not one person had a single complaint about the whole day and night.

Thanks again for everything and all the help over the last 18 months. We just wish we could do it all again. 

Gemma & Alan - June 2017

We had our wedding reception in the Tower recently and all I can say it was 100% perfection!! The whole Events team out done themselves. From the first day we walked into the Tower to view it we were made feel so special and welcome! Aine and Patrick are a massive credit to the hotel their attention to detail is out of this world and made our whole experience so enjoyable and fun with no worries. I can't commend this team enough not only did they organise our wedding reception exactly the way we wanted it they treated us like friends. Thank you very much for everything. Gemma & Alan Foley

Catherine & Thomas - April 2017

On the first day, we walked into the hotel, we knew this was the place we wanted to celebrate our wedding. The staff made us feel like we were the most important people that ever inquired about a wedding and that was before we made our booking.

Once we booked, the event staff Deirdre and Aine were only a call or email away. No query was too big or too small.

We had a humanist wedding and held the ceremony in the hotel so the entire day was held in the one location.

It’s the little things that made the difference we wanted a certain song played at the end of the ceremony and the staff arranged it without so much as a blink of an eye. We went to sample our tasting menu and in a busy restaurant they once again made us feel so special.  On the day of our wedding from the manager stopping by at the breakfast table (Thomas stayed the night before in the hotel) to make sure everything was ok or maybe to help settle nerves.

Once our guests arrived and the festivities started we couldn’t fault a thing. We had entertainment arranged while we disappeared to get our photographs taken. The staff had the reception room transformed in the blink of an eye. The meal or should I say feast was possibly the nicest meal we had ever eaten in a hotel; it was even better than the night we sampled our menu. The rest of the night was like a dream.

We would recommend this hotel to anybody looking to book a wedding, we had the day of our dream’s here.

Amy and Darren - March 2017
 
From the day we walked into the hotel to book our special day, we were made to feel like we were the most important people. That continued throughout our entire planning process and the big day. We were given loads of written information in the booklet, however it doesn't cover half of what the actual team do for you in the run up and the actual day. Nothing was too much for Deirdre, Aine and Pat. The team work seamlessly together and it shows in every aspect of the hotel. The little details were always at the fore. For example, I mentioned Barrys tea at one of our meetings and Aine offered to go and but Barrys tea for our drinks reception. Now that is a service!!! We were able to drop all of the wedding bits and pieces in to the hotel before the day and the hotel were very happy for us to leave it with them. We didn't even need to say what needed to go where, Pat just knew!!!!
 
On the day, as the groom, it was the kind words that kept me calm and knowing that everything was as we had previously discussed. As the bride, I was greeted at the door of the hotel by Pat, who had a funny story and a good laugh before I walked in! The room for the ceremony was set up just as it had been described to us. Even things like the little lanterns lighting the way up and the lighted back drop make a massive difference in making it very personal. We had specific music requests for the ceremony. These were met with minimal effort. Early check in was offered for the musicians who traveled for the UK and our other guests. Once the ceremony was over we were greeted by champagne, a congratulations and big smiles from the team.
 
The bridal suite is amazing with spectacular views of the river suir. Our guests didn't have any complaints about the rooms. Early check in was given for our guests.
 
Without a shadow of doubt, I would recommend this hotel to any bride and groom for their special day. A massive thanks to all of the team involved. Keep up the fantastic work that ye do so effortlessly. You will definitely be seeing us soon. 
 
Gillian and Pat  - October 2016

We will never be able to thank you both and the staff of The Tower Hotel for an amazing day, night and morning. It was even more then we expected. You all went above and beyond and the professionalism, kindness and care you showed to everyone was a credit to you all.
