If you wanted milk to drink,you couldn't get cold from the fridge,you had to have the milk that was for the cereals.a plate to put ham and cheese on wasn't forthcoming... More

First of all... on arrival there was no one at reception. There was a sign on the counter with a telephone number to contact if the desk was unmanned. A female worker appeared from the bar area (which was closed). She didn't even acknowledge us so we phoned the telephone number which went straight to answer service. The owner arrived... More

This hotel was reasonably priced & the rooms were adequate & large enough. However, the rooms we had were in a new part of the hotel still under construction with open doored unfinished rooms adjacent to the rooms we were allocated. And the doors in the corridor were horrendous. It was like trying to sleep through a door slamming contest!!!... More

I stayed in this hotel for two nights with my boyfriend over the holidays. The atmosphere was laid back and the rooms were as you'd expect, clean and comfortable with a nice spacious ensuite, perfect for our needs. The guy in charge was very helpful and provided us with numerous sight seeing tips. I was very impressed by the bar,... More

I stayed here for one night only. The hotel is perfect to explore Kilkenny, especially if you have got your own car. It's a few minutes from the city centre by car. It's in a quiet area, so we could sleep well. I was with some friends and we got a double and a single room (both were ok). The... More

I had the most delicious caesar salad I have ever had (portion of chips too!!) my partner had a very generous burger and chips.... More

Arrived pretty late at night after a drive from Dublin. The manager made some funny comments about bookings from third party websites but we were given our keys. Room was average, ok for short stays. Bathroom was not the greatest, saw some strands of hair from previous guests. The communal iron board on the floor was broken (it would not... More

From our initial, phone call which took ages to answer, and our 10 minute wait to check in, to our check out, this was a place which found most frustrating and disappointing. In a good location on the outskirts of Kilkenny city,(close to St Lukes Hospital). The hotel is a B & B, and not a great one. Rooms are... More
