On arriving I was given my room key (double) and on accessing my room found a surgical dressing (used) under my pillow - the room had not been made up! On meeting the cleaners several rooms down the corridor I was told they would get to my room when they got to it. I was put in a single, no... More

Dreadful paid on arrival for 2 nights. No food available bar not open until 5pm. Only one man on reception no evidence of any other staff members or guest. Carpet was dirty. Whole place needs to be refurbished old fashioned. No bath in room shower has used cheap bottles of toiletries. No individual toiletries. Had to check out immediately. Charged... More

Overall this hotel was very good. Breakfast was really good and the bed was comfortable. The hot water doesn't get switched on until 4pm (I'm assuming it's on in the morning though?) so that was a bit annoying. Also the walls were paper thin and we could hear people in the room next to us quite clearly (they were definitely... More

We booked a one night stay in this hotel purely for the very low price, so we were not expecting much. However we really enjoyed our stay here! The hotel had the best wifi out of any Irish hotel we've stayed in. Parking was free, the man at reception was friendly and the room was nice with a very comfortable... More

Kilkenny is such a busy place that it is hard to get a booking at weekends. However we had a party invite for the Saturday night so we had to stay. The room was OK but the rooms on that floor were being renovated. There was a roll of carpet on the corridor floor half blocking our doorway. When I... More

My friend and I stayed in the Kilkenny house hotel for two nights. we were greeted by the owner Ted who was so friendly. Our room was spotless and really big. It is only a short walk into the town (10mins, 15MAX). If you want to ring a taxi there is a phone at reception that will put you straight... More

Stayed here last minute for a weekend away with friends, easy to find, nice guy on reception upon arrival. Rooms were standard, recently renovated id guess, showers were extremely good, which is contrary to what i was lead to believe from other reviews. Bar is nice and quaint! Only negative would be the length of time that breskfast is served... More

Booked this hotel for my family who visited Kilkenny for my engagement party. Upon arrival, my family were all asked for payments upfront and they asked to check the room. The pillows were wet and the sheets were dirty and stained with makeup. When we asked to have the rooms cleaned and if it was possible to get a reduced... More
