Stayed here for two nights in April with my boyfriend with a deal voucher my dad had given us for Xmas. The voucher was for two nights b&b with an evening meal. Check in was very quick and all staff on reception were always polite, friendly and informative. Our room was very small but clean and comfortable. Getting to it... More

Rooms were big,4 of us in one room but a tiny window which made the room very hot and stuffy and very dated decor.could do with a revamp and good clean. The bar downstairs was ridiculous, no staff behind it so we were waiting quite... More

Great hotel, clean spacious room with a lovely large bathroom. Brilliant located right in the centre of the town. Dinner and breakfast was delicious and the staff I came across were friendly and polite. Would return with a group of friends but not a couple/ family, as the music could be heard in the room until the early hours.

We really enjoyed our two night stay here. Friendly staff and lovely dining areas and breakfast room. Breakfast was really nice and hot plates ready for you.(I hate cold plates) I didn't like the stuffed lion in the entrance lobby. Other than that..it was a most enjoyable stay!! Thank you Kilford Arms staff!!

Bedroom- we were given a family room with 4 beds so no shortage of room. The room is dated, TV very old with remote control not working. A tiny window so the bedroom was really lacking natural light. The room was also warm and stuffy. We were located at a quieter end of the hotel - room 59 so that... More

Had nice 2 night stay with my partner in Kilkenny for a friends wedding. Great value for money, for a nice, warm & clean room. Full Irish breakfast was nice, but there was also a continental breakfast option. There is a front bar, and a super bar & nightclub too. Hotel is located conveniently less than 5 minutes from the...

Hotel was grand for a one or two night stay. Layout of hotel is confusing, abit like a maize. Rooms were clean but bery warm. Hotel room was very basic but clean which is the main thing. Wouldnt be in a rush to stay here again even though I dont have any complaints.

The Hotel is located less than five minuates away frrom the train station. The staff were friendly and helpful. Though it only has one floor, the layout is a bit like a maze to start but you can follow the signs to get to your room. We got a triple room though we only needed a double. the room was... More
