3 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

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

I booked a room a number of weeks ago as a family member was terminally ill in hospital. We, along with several membrts of our family had stayed for almost a week as it was so close to the hospital. At short notice I booked a room and advised upon checking in at 10pm we didn't know if we would... More

I will never stay here again or recommend anyone else to do so. I have never encountered such a rude man in all my hotel stays. He needs to move to another industry away from hospitality. No manner at all and downright ignorant to me. No breakfast available early.

The hotel offered good rates for a three-star-property, so we booked it for two nights. Kilkenny is only about one hour drive from Dublin. Continental breakfast is simple, but included in rates, so we enjoyed a couple of toasts, fresh fruits and freshly made eggs. The hotel bar is nice, they have free wifi and the parking is free too.

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.
