Score from 350 reviews Excellent
No air conditioning and heating had been turned off. Noisy, I could hear conversations in next room. No safe in room. Pathetic hair dryer.
Central location, good parking, good WiFi in rooms. Friendly staff.
Receptionist gave us the wrong room number and we walked into another couples room
The breakfast was very poor for the price we paid - soggy fried eggs, hard beans, watery scrambled eggs. Little choice for a vegetarian. In the room the duvet cover was so thin and too small for the bed. We were woken by a loud knock on the door at 9.25am, followed by another at 9.45am. It was housekeeping! I complained to reception staff only to be laughed at and asked did I hang out the 'do not disturb sign'. Surely, they could have waited for us to check out before they cleaned our room. I have never heard of anything so ridiculous. No one apologised for waking us up and disturbing our lie in. A simple apology from reception would have sufficed but this was not forthcoming. We were completely offended by the way staff spoke to us. It was a small glitch in an otherwise fantastic trip to Kilkenny.
Location, view from our room, decor, free parking
Everything, food is lovely and the staff are great. From the time you arrive until you leave the staff are on hand for everything.
We were pleased by the friendly reception and the comfort of our room. and i compliment you on the excellent breakfast the following morning. we didn't have an evening meal as we were attending a wedding nearby so cannot comment.
The car park was difficult to exit but once I brought it to the attention of the reception staff they sorted the problem immediately.
The location of the hotel is very central and the river and castle give the hotel a sense of luxury.
We were given an upgrade, very pleasant staff so helpful and friendly. Breakfast was really good too. Would highly recommend.
Although a swimming pool was advetised and pictured, there was no pool. The room furnishings felt like something out of very dated film.
The staff was extremely helpful and friendly. Breakfast was great, and the location was very convenient.
Staff couldn't cope with bank holiday crowds. Ran out of most alcohol and dining room was backed up with dirty glasses and crockery. Receptionist was beyond rude and unwelcoming. Never again
Time to go hone
Street noise late at night and also in corridors presumably from guests of the hotel having drunk to much.
Disappointed that swimming pool is closed ! It was a great asset to hotel
Hotel recently decorated so it's gorgeous !
Would not recommend this hotel, dated, overpriced, no facilities, noisy, paper thin walls
No bath towels...my pet hate not having big towels, showering and drying off with small towels
Secure car park, nice bar, great outdoor balcony , fantastic views
Cental location, free parking,
Very expensive 145 for a single person, for that reason I wouldn't stay again
Great location, nice clean room with nice decor, good breakfast
This is a very nice hotel, with a great view of Kilkenny Castle, located just steps from everything that this wonderful town has to offer. Friendly and helpful staff, remodeled rooms and free breakfast make this a winner!
Bed tiny ! Carpet shabby and door fell off when we tried to take out kettle Breakfast v greasy Bar food menu v limited Veg soup and bacon as special two days in a row No atmosphere at all in bar Like a geriatric unit No music Happy holidays
The staff and location
Disappointed with the restaurant.
Car park was poor
no leisure centre. Needs some updating.
No swimming pool or leisure facilities of any description espcially if you have young or teenage kids. Rooms we (twin) had were shabby enough with paint peeling from radiators - was dated looking. No access on TV for games. Rooms not ready till 4pm and not done at all following day. Staff not overly friendly. Very disappointing visit.
Location as usual is perfect as you are right in the centre of kilkenny
Difficulty finding entrance to hotel and car park as it was evening when we arrived.
Central location - nice outlook over river and castle.
The staff were excellent. Nothing was too much trouble. Would highly recommend this hotel.
