We stayed here on a Saturday night when there was a wedding and a large 60th birthday party going on. Typical Kilkenny, even the hotel was buzzing.
Pool and Spa area were very nice, even though the infinity pool was out of order, which was a real shame, especially as one of the local regulars told us how nice it was. Outside in the cold weather sounded really nice!
Rooms were very clean, spacious and comfortable. Nothing flash but that wasn't being sought by us. We had asked in advance for a quiet room, and they really gave us the last room on one of the wings. So top marks for the staff here!
We didn't dine in the hotel, however had a quiet afternoon drink in the bar which was very nice indeed, especially with the buzz of a wedding party around us. Service was very attentative and pleasant. We returned later that night to the bar, where there was live music and a good atmosphere, seems the locals use it as well which bodes well.
We had a great time in Kilkenny, and the hotel which is a 10 minute walk into town is great value for money, especially with the nive amenities that it provides.
