Great location in a fun city! We very much enjoyed Kilkenny.
Beds were not very comfortable.
Had to park fair distance from entrance and offered no help with luggage. Kept awake until 2a.m. with very loud music from wedding. Had one meal at hotel = beef overcooked, cold plate and veg. No one too concerned
Hotel very comfortable and very central food excellent
Lack of parking as had wedding there
This hotel has the best location in town. Great view of the castle, particularly from the restaurant and bar. It had one of the best breakfasts we've had so far this trip. The room was clean and generally as you would expect. Kilkenny is definitely worth a visit.
Room was very warm at night even with window opened (max opening was ~2 inches). In fairness it was a warm day 23C.
The hospitality and the helpfulness of the staff was fantastic. It was right on the river across from the castle. Easy walking to everything.
I blew a fuse in our room using my hair dryer in the converter. I didn't know that was even possible. The front desk explained how to reset the fuse in our room and we were good to go again. A minor inconvenience. Chalk it up to an experience!
Location is brilliant.
Definetly not worth the price for 1 ngt b&b 170e. Bathrooms and Bar Area could do with updating.
Friedly staff. Nice decking , views and excellent location.
It' all about location, couldn't ask for a better place, right in middle of town. Very friendly staff too.
No air conditioning.
Hotel was very run down and unclean. Chamber maids had trolleys, hoovers etc in hallways all day. Also standing about doing nothing. Glasses in bar were dirty and swimming pool over crowded. Wouldn't recommend to anyone!!
Access to parking was very difficult to find. The furnishings looked tired.
The location was perfect for us, parked car and did not move it for the next 48 hours. The staff were very professional, I can not comment on the restaurant as we did not have dinner, but the breakfast was first class.
Our second night was not so good, probably not the fault of the hotel, but some girls were partying nearby and woke us several times during the night I did not expect to have to pay to park my car in the hotel car park.
Hotel was really nice. Close to everywhere, Lovely view.
I click fair for sleep quallity as there was a wedding in the hotel and our room was located over the reception room. We were told that at the check in and the possibility od changing room to different side of the hotel was offered, but we book delux double room with castle wiev so that what we wanted to get. Offering room without view in this situation was not fair as I'm sure the wedding was booked long time before I booked my room. So at the moment of my booking they new that quality of the sleep will be poor. I think that we should be inform about this at the booking, so we could change our mind. Offering different room at the arrival date was just a bit unfair.
Nice staff, good location, good breakfast
Our room was v dated room 136. Bit poor considering what we paid.
the location of the hotel no need to drive most things within walking distance. The views were amazing from our room. Staff very helpful and friendly.Great breakfast selection.Hotel and rooms were spotless.
nothing,could not fault this hotel
Beautiful room very comfortable
Breakfast was only ok
Super location, Only had bar food which was first class. Breakfast was spot on and the staff were friendly and helpful. All in all I couldn't fault our stay. Keep it going.
The whole hotel venue and river location perfect for all ages. ..... a very special place especially for a wedding which was taking place during our stay. Near to town centre and country park and castle and local walks.
Beautiful view right on the river across from the castle. Very luxurious with large, comfortable room. Convenient and affordable off-street parking. Great breakfast.
Room was quite a distance from the lift and stairs.
Liked proximity to town - loved terrace overlooking river and castle - unfortunately weather wasn't warm enough to use it.
On two of our 3 mornings we had no hot water in our room. However this was dealt with immediately and we were given a 10% discount. We had to ask for this and felt it should have been offered without asking.
Location, on the river, facing the castle. River had swans and ducks and there were lots of hanging baskets of flowers. Room was excellent. Staff friendly. We had the history of Kilkenny on our doorstep. The swimming pool was great. The breakfast food was good.
One of our twin rooms turned out to be a double but this was rectified in an hour and a partial refund was given. There was no drinking water in the room. The shower head was partially blocked.
Location & View Staff very friendly and helpful Able to open windows for fresh air Comfortable beds
Pubic hair in bath mat I think it is over priced Lack of TV channels
every thing was lovely food excellent we had dinner it was so tasty View of castle from dining room was nice i liked everything about the river court ill be back
Bathrooms were so old dated as were tiles throughout hotel
The location was superb, the rooms were great value for the money
we stayed for 4 nights & in that time 2 weddings and another function were held, the foyer, the bar, the restaurant was a huge crush and the noise in the early mornings as people partied on was unbearable.
