“ideal for business trip or quick stay in the area”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 16, 2013

We just stayed one night and didn't spend much time in the hotel but we have to say it's a good hotel if you are looking for just a place to stay overnight.

bedroom was very spacious, not very minimalist in term of furniture but clean and everything you need is provided (iron, soap, hair dryer, tea & coffee). The breakfast is self service and very very good-you can't expect any better. Newspapers is also given away. Check in was the quickliest I had never seen and check out nearly the same.

It's not a luxurious hotel but for 69 euros for couple and one kid with breakfast included it can't be any better. I will go again for sure if I need to go to Kilkenny again.

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.
