“One night stay”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed 1 week ago NEW

We stayed for one night at this hotel. The room was spacious and well appointed. Bathroom properly fitted for wheelchair access. Dinner was excellent as was the service. Breakfast was also very good (self-service). The only problem was that the noise from groups of other guests was very loud - there is no separation between guests drinkinh at the bar in the lobby and the restaurant. In addition, we were ket awake until almost 4am by loud shouting by guests and it appears no attempt was made by management to address this. Despite a comfortable room, we had a very bad night's sleep.

Room Tip: stay well away from reception and the bar and ask for a quiet room

We stayed in a very large room - experience when booking was very positive, we arrived early, but were facilitated to check in. Room was enormous (bathroom quite small, but adequate), breakfast was great - loads of choice.

All in all, a good value stay - we'll stay again!

this was our second time to stay at the aspect. we were booked in for the 13th and 14th sept and as with our last stay the staff were very helpful and frendly. the standards of the rooms seem to have slipped,there was a big stain on the carpet by the bed and one of the pillow cases was split on the seam,when having a shower the water was very slow going down the plug hole.we reported this on the sat evening, but it was still the same the next day.the breakfast was ok not as hot as it could be(i mentioned this on my last review last year and the toaster was still very slow).
If you have a drink at the bar and need the loo you have to go down stairs ok during the day but late at night anything could happen down there and no one were hear you(the wifes words on returning from the toilet on sat night).It is a 10min walk in to town so not to far and it is nice and quiet.dispite these few negatives it is still a nice hotel and as i said the staff are very frendly

Stayed here in February for one night after a red eye flight. They let us check in early and it was very quiet as we pretty much just slept all day. Nice restaurant with good food. Only there the one night as it was part of a pre planned packaged deal but would definitely stay here again. Very friendly and helpful staff. Ample parking and free wifi.

I stayed here over night with my family. The family room we stayed in was very clean and very spacious. The staff were lovely and the food was really nice . We would certainly return to this hotel again . The bathroom was a bit tight for space and there was no air conditioning system in the room but we were able to leave the window open . We enjoyed our stay here.

Stayed here for 3 nights and it was lovely. It is about a 15-20 min walk to city center or 5 min drive, although the streets in Kilkenny are very narrow for driving, so parking the car and walking around city is a must.There are several all day car parks, although they fill pretty quick. The hotel staff were very friendly,the room was clean, comfortable,spacious, nothing fancy but clean and quiet.Bed was very spacious and very comfortable. Bathroom was a decent size for a hotel bathroom, Buffet breakfast was plentiful, although it was cold one morning but the girl heated it for me, no hassle,
This hotel seems to have a lot of bus loads of tourists stay so sometimes breakfast is very busy.
it is not a fancy hotel,but it is a nice hotel, it is beside a retail park,(house and garden stores)There are no vending machines in hotel or local shops near by so you would need a car,but a taxi into town was ten euro.I would stay again as i liked the peace and quiet as kilkenny nightlife is seven nights a week so the town can be very busy. I would recommend the Aspect for families with small children, older couples, I think for younger people who like nightlife it may be just a wee bit far out of town.

Room Tip: Rooms to back, (odd numbered rooms) are quieter as they face a car park and fields, Rooms to front f...
