Score from 310 reviews Excellent
The room was way to warm,couldn't wait to leave
Staff in bar and dinning super, bedroom and poor area lovely
Staff at front dest in morning kept her head down, did not meet your eye, or try to interact with you
It is really central and the staff couldn't be more friendly.
Nothing it was all excellent.
Manager Declyn was very accommodating
Beds were small and not very comfortable, no mini bar in room, old dated decor, walls dirty,paint chipped, dry wall around windows falling off,room was cold, Breakfast was cold. I dont complain too often but this was dissappointing
Staff were in general excellent. Very comfortable and centrally located.
Hotel is in good condition but for a 4 star rating it needs some upgrading.
Proximity to shopping
Constant noise of a boiler fan on all night very disturbing. Discovered we were placed directly over a boiler room.
A great location, with lovely river view rooms. Also a very patient and polite Night Porter, Manolito, Cheers!
Beautiful stay right on the river. Would have loved to stay longer.
Location, the food was great, friendly staff
Location, friendly staff
Jacuzzi was broke, Decour seemed a bit dated and worn
Staff are friendly and accommodating. Location in centre of town is perfect and scenic
Downtown centrally located within walking distance of great sites
The entrance from the street was a bit of a challenge but we managed with a friendly local. Not sure how to mark it better without loosing the charm.
chose this hotel mainly due to location . hotel is within walking distance of all the sights and attractions in kilkenny and hotel is only a short distance from the train station. hotel has good facilities but didnt eat at hotel restaurant . breakfast is very good value .
hotel could do with a refurbishment,maybe the hotel has recently changed ownership and hasnt got the opportunity yet. our room was located at rear of hotel and during the night there was a constant noise coming from an extractor or generator from the kitchen. try a room towards front of hotel . due to a technical fault at hotel there was no hot water or heating but the staff went out of their way to facilitate guests .
Manager was exceptionally helpful and friendly. Bar staff very pleasant and service very efficient. Food excellent for both taste and value, breakfast selection large and cooked items really tasty - and hot!
Nice place; next to the castle with beautiful views of the castle; convenient parking; buffet breakfast
Room and staff
Bar food could be better
river court hotel was lovely very central location. I had read bad reviews after booking this hotel, but needn't have worried. maybe some people are very hard to please. we had a lovely stay and would definitely go back again.
ther was nothing I didn't like or had any issues with. breakfast was buffet style and it probably could have been hotter, but that is just a minor issue
Would recommend this hotel as location is great with lovely castle views.
Having to pay €5 carpark fee when you are a resident!
View of river and castle.
Room was spacious and comfortable. Food was excellent, staff extremely friendly and helpful. The hotel was very central and in the summer the outside must be a great place to kick back and relax in the sun.
having to pay for the carpark.
I left a brand new pair of jeans in my room but didn't realise until 1 week later, phone the hotel and the jeans were delivered to me the next day, superb customer service
The staff were most friendly and the room was beautiful with lots of space the bed was extremely comfortable and spacious
Complete smoke free rooms wasn't ideal the water for the bath was cold on the main entrance the handle on the door is very lose a bit dangerous parking is a joke the fact you have to pay for it and the hotel is not very well signed hard to find if you don't know Kilkenny other than this it was beautiful and I would definitely return again
The staff where very friendly and helpful,one girl stood out for us was a romanian women working in the dinning room she was very friendlyFriendly
Liked everything couldnt fault it
This hotel has a great location, right in the heart of Kilkenny. Nice comfortable rooms & very clean. Breakfast was great. Help yourself buffet, lots of choice. Would definitley recommend.
