“I really liked it for what it is”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 16, 2012

I had a great experience in this hotel mostly because of the staff. I had interactions with 3 different staff members and found them all genuinely friendly in a casual but sincere sort of way. You got the impression they knew all their guests.
Its not a hotel I would stay for dinner in and is definitely more bed and breakfast but the rooms were a very good standard for the price point. I asked for a couple of things that the hotel doesn't generally provide and they went out of their way to oblige me.
Its a bit outside the city so transport is needed - taxi in was 6 euro and taxi home was 8. The hotel is really great value overall.

It's fast check in. Decent rooms, grand parking and the breakfast was fine.
Grand for business but email and Internet only in the lobby. it's where you go to crash out before work and after. It's clean.

Overall, it's fine, but it's lacking charm of an older hotel or a plush venue, but great value.

We stayed here while attending a wedding in another hotel. It's located near a few shops including a KFC. The room was clean comfy beds and clean bathroom. Great chat with the man checking us in. Very reasonable rates but really only a place for sleep and shower.

We bought our nights stay in this hotel as part of a groupon deal which gave us the nights stay, a bottle of wine, breakfast and a late checkout.

Upon arriving at the hotel the receptionist that greeted us was polite but not overly welcoming, our interaction lasted no more than the minute it took for her to look over our e-mail booking and have us sign for the room. The bottle of wine we received was tasty and the room itself was clean. The location is in an industrial park, just a short taxi journey into the city.

We had been looking forward to our stay and some much needed rest and relaxation, but it as it turned out neither of us could sleep properly because our bed was two single beds clipped together and everytime one of us turned over the beds separated and had to be pushed back together several times during the night. Our bathroom also smelled terrible. The stink of cigarette smoke (we were on a non-smoking floor) was very strong, disgusting and unpleasant everytime one of us used facilites. We decided not to use the late checkout the following morning and we left as soon as we could after having an early breakfast (which was fine - standard fry up and a few healthier options).

On checkout I advised the clerk of our poor nights sleep because the beds kept separating and the smell of our bathroom. He just shrugged, grinned and offered his apologies (didn't come across very sincere at all). Overall, the hotel wasn't great and we certainly won't book it again or recommend it to friends.

My husband and I stayed here for three nights and had a very pleasant stay. The room was comfortable, spacious and very clean. We ate in the restaurant each night and chose from the 3 course set menu for 2 which cost 49 euros and included a bottle of wine. The food was superb and the portions were enormous! The staff could not have been friendlier or more helpful, we would definitely stay there again.

Hotel is located outside 3 km outside city center. No pubs or restaurants around. The room was big but basic with a small bathroom. Nice staff. The restaurant in the hotel was good and served HUGE portions of food. Breakfast was not to die for but aligned with the hotel style. I would not recommend this hotel if you plan to go out. Otherwise, it's ok if you can get a deal. A bit pricey otherwise.

Thank you for your recent review of Aspect Hotel Kilkenny. I am glad to hear that you found the staff good and your evening meal to be enjoyable. We are just over 1KM to the city centre so 3km I think you may not have taken the direct route. We are always the best value in Kilkenny so I am unsure about your comment about been a bit pricey, perhaps when you stayed was at a peak demand date but yet I promise you we would still be the best value on offer in Kilkenny. Also remember always book directly with us were we promise is always the very best rate.
