No one was at the front desk when we arrived, but someone came quickly when I called the number on the counter. The room was clean and the bed was comfortable. The breakfast buffet was an additional 10euro. There was nothing special about this hotel. I probably wouldn't stay there again, but if you are on a budget it isn't... More

My husband and I visited the hotel last weekend for a family reunion in the area. Upon arrival, the reception was empty so we had to ring using the phone for attendance. We paid upfront 119 euro which I suppose didn't matter. We were told we would get an above average room and a nice breakfast. The room was far... More

Stayed in a twin room. Spotlessly clean with continental breakfast and wifi throughout. The owner Ted was extremely helpful. The location was ideal for us as it had a large carpark and away from the bustle of the city but still in walking distance. 50 euro for bed and breakfast for 2 people is extremely good value.

We booked a twin and a single and the place was clean, easy to find and the sights were not too far a drive ie a few minutes. Continental breakfast, clean rooms, a very hard working owner-operator and a very reasonable price.

Stayed here for 3 nights. No elevator. Hotel was ok. Not a great location. But cab rides were a flat fee. Rooms were clean. It was an extra 100 euro for one extra person in a room, room was a double bed and a single. Seemed a bit ridiculous if you ask me. Breakfast was nothing special and the breakfast... More

Distressing experience. Owner Ted's behaviour was totally irrational, aggressive and unwelcoming. I had booked in advanced. When I arrived Ted was stalking then car park. I wondered was he looking for the two Euro charge that was sign posted everywhere. He eventually went inside. When I got to reception he was closing door, turning on and off lights. The place...

I booked this hotel a few weeks back for one night just to have somewhere to stay after a work do in Kilkenny. It took me close to 40 minutes to get from one side of Kilkenny to the hotel because of road works. When I arrived at the hotel I was told the owner had overbooked for the weekend... More

If you are on a budget then this hotel is perfect. Staff on reception were friendly. Rooms were clean but basic. Beds are very comfortable. Breakfast was terrible, limited time to actually get it and its only continental during the week. The girl serving breakfast was very rude and walked off mid sentence when I spoke to her asking for... More
