This hotel was a great value in Kilkenny and Kilkenny is a great town to visit. Within walking distance to some great places. It's not a traditional Irish Inn, but a nice change up if you're looking for a more modern. The staff is very friendly and accommodating. Rooms were clean and neat. The parking lot was nice to have... More

If you're looking for a good place to stay this is it. The hotel is fresh and the rooms are very nice. The Irish breakfast included is worth the money for sure. Parking is limited so get there as close to check in as possible so you can have a spot.

My friend and I were pleased the hotel had an available room after having difficulty the previous night. The beautiful medieval town is a popular destination, especially on weekends. The rooms have a modern, artistic presentation. The staff are very accommodating and friendly. The restaurant on the main level offers delicious food in a modern, comfortable setting.

The hotel is within easy walking distance from the Castle, City center , Black Abbey and the Round Tower. The staff was very pleasant and helpful with directions and advise. The room was clean with a large bathroom. We stayed mid-week and the hotel was quiet. The hotel is across the street from Zuni's restaurant, a great place to eat!!

Kilkenny was our first stop after an overnight flight to Dublin and no sleep. We arrived in late morning and were able to check in early. This was great because we needed to freshen up and drop off our luggage before doing some sightseeing. The room was very comfortable. The staff members were all very friendly. Morning breakfast was very... More

Great hotel, very modern, very large room and bathroom. Closet could be larger but the dressing area was nice. Blow dryer is in desk/dresser drawers not in bathroom. Always very warm when we returned to room. Front desk staff WONDERFUL. All very helpful.

This hotel ticks all the boxes, particularly location. Parking is a little tight but my one complaint was they had no tv in the bar to watch the match. One older patron was left disappointed and did not go wish to go to a crowded bar in town. Service was lovely
