Spent a weekend in this Hotel - staff all lovely and very very helpful - as we were early checking in and room not ready gave us another room which was lovely - very large and good sized bathroom with especially nice toiletries. Tea and coffee making facilities which are always appreciated. We ate in the hotel on the first evening - although you will not be stuck in Kilkenny City for somewhere to eat as loads of bars and restaurants. The food was excellent as was the breakfast - well cooked and served to your table. This hotel is about a 10 minute walk into the city centre but is an ideal place to stay after travelling from Belfast - easy to find and easy access to the motorways. Would highly recommend although take up the offer for softer pillows!!!!
