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.
Free car park whom stay for few days
Pay car park whom stay for few days
Need to book the Spa in advance of stay ..... this was booked up.
-The location -The breakfast -Early bird in the restaurant was lovely but a little rushed -Nice bar food also
-The rooms are too warm even in October, we were roasting all night! -Walls are very thin, we could hear people in the room beside us and people walking up the hallway at 3am -No teabags in our room the first morning (not major)
Everything, perfect location, lovely view of the castle from the dining room, lovely food, friendly staff,safe parking, quiet and peaceful.
Nothing. No complaints.
I love the rooms but abit to warm at nite
I wnd have like de option of a smoking room dan not having any at all
We had a very pleasant and comfortable stay. Restaurant was wonderful,
Unable to use pool as the pool and restaurant closd early so had to choose one or the other.
The location overlooking the Castle & proximity to city centre are paramount.Staff were friendly & attentive. The food ie breakfasts were very filling & choices varied. Free parking was a great advantage.
The room ,although comfortable is lacking in any decent AIR CONDITIONING & i wouldnt fancy using it in hot summer weather.The buttons on the lift are hard to read & the place could do with re decorating .
Very friendly staff.lovely room and stunning views of the castle from the bar and restaurant.brilliant location.great selection at breakfast.lovely jacuzzi.will definitely be back to this hotel and would highly recommend it.
The only thing I didn't like was that there were no individual changing cubicles in the leisure area.
location, view of castle from restaurant and grounds.
Hotel is on the river, Kilkenny castle looms overhead, walk everywhere, staff are irish full of charm and wit, bar is classic, breakfast buffet has all the favorites, I miss the white linen table cloths and hot tea pots. A very charming stay just what I was in search of for our Ireland trip.
No neg's would stay again and recommend highly. Some rooms have a view of the castle.
everything about hotel was great going back in november cant wait !
It was a lovely hotel and the staff was impressively good and helpful. Rooms were spacious and nice. We were right across from the castle and right in the city...literally you could roll out of bed and be there......so convenient and nice especially if you're new to driving on the left side of the road...you just want to park your car and go.
The food was not good. We splurged one night to eat in the dining room and sit at a table with a view of the castle lit up at night. Either one of us could barely eat the meal...couple next to us didn't touch theirs either...meat was tough and overdone...rest of meal just not good
No central air.
Perfect in every way - great location, great breakfasts and in a beautiful setting.
