The customer service in this hotel is appalling. From start to finish we were met with rude, obnoxious and completely unprofessional staff, particularly from the girl at reception. Completely ruined our stay and we have advised anyone we know to give this hotel a miss. Never again.

Location couldn't have been better. Staff were very welcoming and could not have been more helpful. Very clean comfortable room (we stayed in room 49) which had an adjoining room so was very spacious for 3 of us! Will recommend this hotel to anyone visiting Kilkenny! Simply perfect!

Nice place nice food nice staff, extremely hot in the rooms, restaurant,pubs etc.... Bit far out of town away from all the other night life. Food tastes just okay menu is very plain and not a great selection, portions are very small it would be quiet possible to still feel hungry even after eating

We really werent here long as we showed up late and left early the next morning. That being said the rooms were generic but functional. The rooms were on the expensive side for them being decent but not great. Nothing really stood out, it was just fine.

Stayed on a supervalu break a year ago. I was very disappointed with the rooms - they are substandard in this day & age. The room was like something from the seventies with old furniture that was well past its sell by date. The bed sunk in the middle and the bed linen was grey(meant to be white). The covers... More
