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

We stayed here 2 nights and were very happy with the rooms and service. The rooms are spacious, clean and updated. The price is cheaper even than the B and B's we'd favoured. We had a car so getting into town was easy, although it might be a bit far to walk-it is possible for the fit. A full irish... More

I don't know what everyone is complaining about but this hotel was great! It was clean, had a good breakfast, only 20min walk from city center, good prices and a very helpful staff. We did not have a car but the staff was always helpful in calling us a cab or giving us walking directions. I would definitely stay here... More

This hotel is a disgrace, there was what only could be described as sperm on the pillows. The sheets and pillows were stained. The barman seemed to be drunk. We left and had to go to a different hotel. Never again. Avoid.

Stayed here one night. The hotel is nicely put together and there's plenty of parking. The rooms are huge, BUT the shower was filled with other ppls hair and pubs. Quite revolting actually. The walk from the city is not 20min walk. It's more like a 40min walk unless your extremely tall. Great for a one night stay, don't know... More

Since this is a small inn, keep in mind that they do not have someone manning the desk every moment, however, a phone is available to call and let someone know you are there to check-in. Parking was free as a guest. Rooms were nice and good value for the $$. Quiet area. About a 5 minute drive into the... More
