Maybe I am used to staying in nice hotels and I've always said that they are all the same but this dump has changed my opinion. Check in was a joke, I made the booking on booking.com and when I got to reception they have no computer so the bozo behind the desk was painfully trying to find my name... More

We stayed here on Saturday night just gone. €150.00 for what may I ask? This so called "hotel" is planted in the middle of no where. The room was dated, dirty and dingy! The staff made no effort what so ever. We would advise people to avoid this hotel at all costs.

We left booking a hotel in Kilkenny late and this was the only one available...We paid 150 euros for a room that was dirty and the staff was not friendly at all! It felt like staying in a collage dorm with partying all night and we couldn't sleep.... Far away from centre... not 15 min like they say! I would... More

I have recently (Saturday) returned from a one night stay and the Kilkenny House Hotel and found it disappointing. Upon arrival we booked in quickly. We were told that the bar food did not begin until 5pm (not bothered too much but important to know), we received a large key to our room! There was no lift in the hotel... More

We booked a one night stay in this hotel and had a fantastic time. The owner had us laughing so much it hurt. We went to the restaurant for dinner and the laughs continued – between the bar staff and the owner it was a replay of faulty towers, I had to ask them to stop because my sides were... More

Had to overnight in Kilkenny unexpectedly. Stay at this family room hotel for €52! Room was on small side but had a double & single bed! Beds very comfortable, heating good, fitting dated but everything spotless. Bathroom good sized rectangle with shower over bath - not my favourite - but lots of hot water, etc., & nicely tiled & again... More

I rang to reserve 2 rooms. When a man answered he said "hold on, well what are you looking for?" He was clearly speaking to someone else as he answered the phone to me. I told him I was looking for a triple room and a twin room to which he replied,"we don't really like doing triples as it can... More

Location is 20 minute easy pace to town walk. Front desk staff extremely friendly and helpful. First of all no elevator at this place and for the 4 flights of stairs with suitcases this isn't acceptable in this day and age. Tv is old small CRT and picture quality is ok but not stunning. Free parking is a plus but... More

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
