Location is quite a distance from city centre, not the easiest place to find either. Room facilities reasonable, clean, well appointed. Breakfast was disappointing, service at breakfast was poor. Overall, OK.

I would definitely stay again, the hotel room was comfortable and the staff were very friendly and helpful. There was a good selection for breakfast of hot and cold food, and if I was to criticise anything the baked beans were very sweet and the black pudding wasn't very tasty (and I normally really like black pudding). If I was... More

Not very group friendly as they make u pay a big deposit and full price of the rooms on arrival and no residents bar, and not as close to the city as they make out so wouldn't bother staying there again

The hotel is about one mile from Kilkenny Castle. It has a restaurant and a bar, Internet, public use computer and printer. It reminded me on Rada chain. We had a double room with old soft matrasses and uncomfortable pillows . The carpet was old and hall way had a cigarette smell. Bathrooms were clean but had no toiletries except... More

I stayed in the aspect hotel and booked a superior room, there was nothing superior about the room. I was left feeling very disappointed. I don't get away for the night often and I was looking forward to it. The bed was the main issue. It was dipped in the middle and I couldn't sleep properly in it as it... More

We visited here on a National holidays trip. the rooms were large (unlike the towels!) and the restaurant very tidy. Food could be a little more adventurous, chicken cooked 3 ways over 3 nights and there are other veg that are cheap other than carrots and turnip, but then we hadn't paid very much for the whole holiday. There was... More

Thank you for your kind comments and we do apologise for the lack of variety of food during your stay. This is something that we do not do however a number of the suppliers decided to make a long weekend of Easter and took Good Friday as a Bank Holiday and failed to make deliveries. As a result of this... More

This was the first stop on our tour of Ireland and overall it was a good experience. The staff are friendly and helpful, and the location is fine if you have a car for the short drive into town (there is a nice public lot right in the middle of everything). I loved Kilkenny and wish we had spent more... More

Thank you for your comments and your feedback. Yes washcloths are not an item that is used in general in Irish Hotels any longer, they used to be used years ago but since then the Hotels governing body have removed them from hotel requirements. Glad to read that you found the staff to be excellent and that you found the... More

First hotel we stay in on our tip to Ireland. It was fine For the value. We were there on a busy weekend and it was a little noisy....no fault of the hotel. Pros: staff very helpful. Very quickly moved our room when I found we had been assigned to a smoking room. Clean linens, comfortable bed, nice room size,... More
