Staff very efficient and prompt response to problems we encountered on arrival. Location excellent. Good food.
If you want a quiet relaxing break stay away! Ideal for stag/ hen parties. Bar still very busy at 3am. Smoke alarm had been removed from room and electricity turned off when we arrived. Obvious that previous occupants had been smoking in room. Trying to access hotel late at night virtually impossible. Access at night is through their nightclub but once that closed was left standing outside for 10 mins at 3am after ringing a doorbell which is nearly impossible to see high up on the wall!
Lovely an friendly an room was really nice an clean
Entrance to hotel from car park is too confusing an so many stairs esp if u have a heavy suitcase
Location, location, location. Food was good too.
Too many staff at breakfast getting in the way.
Food was amazing Service was excellent Staff very friendly Ideal location
No complimentary toiletries, had to buy my own. Shower head was a disaster!!
The pub and night club. Staff were lovely
The price was a bit high and didn't include breakfast
good pub great location good breakfast
restaurant food is very poor wouldn't have dinner in there again
The rooms were fab. The staff from reception to bar to house were so good.
Hotei was not far from train station Great value for money Excellent service staff very friendly We would recommend it to travellers
There was not a thing i did not like all good
the noise from the late bar kept us awake.
We liked the location and the food was great great staff
This hotel has a great location in the heart of Kilkenny, ideal for a weekend or a night out. A few minutes walk from the train station, the Kilford also has free car parking at the rear of the hotel.
Only thing I liked was that it was central.
My friend was left outside the hotel at 4.00am in the middle of a load of drunken guys, as you can imagine left her in a very vunerable position. The hotel staff(security) would not let her enter the hotel even though she had her access card and had paid for the room, so myself and a friend had to get out of our beds to go down and let tell security to let her in. If we were not there to go down to her she may have been left out there all night for all we know. Upon check out the next morning my friend vented her frustration to the hotel manager who did not seem to have a clue what to say, his customer service skills were appauling. I was in work on the Monday and got a phone call from the hotel manager claiming he was the security manager in which he was not(why he was lying I don't know, I knew by his accent he was the hotel manager from the day before), he went on to explain what he had seen on the security cameras from that night in which I explained to him that he should be speaking with my friend as it was her that was making the complaint, he then began to raise his voice and get frustrated with me, I told him that he has no customer service skills and that he was approaching the situation completely wrong way in which I then hung up. I can safely say that myself and my friends will never be returning as their attitude and the way they went about the issue was an absolute disgrace. As far as I am concerned as a customer the hotel should have owned up and just apologised for their mistake and not have a go at us!
Very Friendly Staff and Great Location
Parking and nice bar/pub
Very loud, uncomfortable beds and room
.The staff were very nice and helpful and the location was vdery central
i was unable to open the window in the bedroom. THe shower water was coming out all over the floor and very hard to regulate. Also the bar floor seemed to be quite dirty
Authenticity of historic places. Quiet rooms.
Lack of informations at reception desk, about the use of access card for electricity in the room. Lack nof informations about how to acceed the hotel when coming late at night. No direct access to rear parking.
room wasn't very clean we couldn't open window
Location in the city. Spacious room. Interesting decore in resturant and bar.
Being an early riser, didn't like being locked in. Long way to get to room.
nothing except they staff were nice.
everything to do with the rooms and bathroom it was so bad we left and booked in in Carlow.
The hotel is centrally located and the staff offered a good level of customer service.
The standard of the room did not match that of the one on booking.com and I needed to ask for a room change. The first room was tired and grubby with the alternative room only coming up to a basic standard.
Late night (3:00 a.m.) chatter in the corridor outside my room.
The location and price
There was no window in the room to open and let some air in, couldnt sleep with the heat, room had air con but was very weak, probably wouldnt stay again. There was a fan already in the room so there must have been previous complaints
Room 32 is right on the street and over the main bar. We stayed Friday night and the noise from the bar, smokers on the street and even residents roaring and shouting in the corridors. Made our stay a nightmare. Residents shouting at 4am outside our door. We won't be back !
Walls in bedroom like paper listening to television next door all night could even hear him snoring..so much for night away from children..
