“Incredible Value!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 12, 2013 via mobile

Just returned from a two night stay in the Aspect and can't speak highly enough of it. Reception staff were friendly, welcoming and helpful. The lobby/ bar area is spacious and comfortable and the rooms have everything you need for a comfortable, relaxing stay. It reminds me very much of the Novotel brand, which, for me, is a good thing. Everything is done in a thoroughly professional manner, including room servicing, which is done to an excellent standard. I didn't eat here as Kilkenny has a myriad of choices, but the breakfast buffet is excellent. I would have been perfectly happy if my stay had cost twice what it did, but consider this, two nights b&b for two, for a total price of E85? Incredible value. We'll be back.

Cheap... €45 b&b. easy to get too etc.

Probably one if the nicest cities in Ireland... So staying at a roundabout on a bypass isn't the smartest way to take advantage of that!! So if you are just passing thru and need somewhere to lay your head for low cost. This is adequate

no wifi in room, despite advertising as such.
Sandpaper instead of toilet paper.
Shower head and fitting so clogged with limescale, couldn't adjust temp and half the head was clogged. All basic maintenance not being done.

Thank you for your feedback is is very much appreciated, we really do value genuine feedback. I am some what disappointed to hear that you found the hotel to be poorly maintained and that the toilet paper is like sandpaper given it is Kittensoft that we use. We are located off the ring road but to say we are on a roundabout is unjustified. We are 1km by car from the roundabout but yes closer by foot if you go accross the field.

This hotel is very comfortable and relaxing - the atmosphere is good and the staff very helpful. The location is perhaps a bit too far to walk to the centre of Kilkenny but as long as you are aware of this it does not present a problem.

We stayed one night, had a beautiful spacious warm room. The hotel staff were lovely and I got an early check in which was great. I paid €60 for a superior room with breakfast for 2 people. Excellent value. Will stay there again.

I hadnt done any research on this hotel before I booked but when looking for somewhere to stay overnight we stumbled on this hotel. I checked briefly online first and was pleasantly surprised to find that the receptionist quoted the same price for the room. We booked a double room with breakfast for €50.

We were given room 202 initially however when we arrived at the room, we discovered there was a loud droning noise that could be heard much too easily. I contacted the receptionist and was told that they could give me another room on the first floor away from the noise. I was pleased that they handled the swap of rooms so quickly but had been dissapointed that we were given this room in the first place as the hotel was certainly not full.

The room was comfortable, bathroom a little small but adequate. Soap very cheap quality.

The breakfast was excellent value. All the food looked very fresh and the restaurant was clean. There was plenty of choice, the only thing I would note is that the croisants were not brought out until we had nearly finished the breakfast. These happened to be the best part of the breakfast and I wish they had been available when breakfast had started at 8am (on a saturday).

Overall, a very pleasant stay and we will certainly return.

Room Tip: If you want a good sleep, request one that is quiet and do not accept any between 201 and 204 as the...

Stayed for one night in the Aspect Hotel with my wife. We paid €60 for B&B. The staff we encountered were all top class.
We met some friends there and used the restaurant for our evening meal. This was exceptional value - four course meal for two and a bottle of wine for €49. There were five of us dining and we were all very pleased with the quality & service.
The was a great variety of items for breakfast but as usual I had the full Irish. My wife went for a more healthy option and was also very happy with her choice. We were also happy with our room & had a good nights sleep.
As others have said the hotel is a bit away from the city center but this did not matter to us on this occasion. There is loads of car park spaces available. Overall we were very satisfied with our stay in the Aspect.
