“Lovely hotel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 6, 2011

Stayed at this hotel for a girlie weekend in Kilkenny. The weather that weekend was really bad and some of the girls couldnt make it and we had to cancel some rooms that day and they were so nice and didnt charge us.

The rooms are big and spacious and very clean.

Breakfast was a buffet and you could get loads, fries, cereal, fruit, scones etc... We didnt have dinner or lunch though.

The hotel is near enough to the town. Only about 6-10 euro in taxi depending on the time of day. Hotel order you taxis which is handy.

Its very good value!

Stayed here for one night with a couple of friends. It was pleasant, clean, fresh, modern, and a refreshing change from some other chain type hotels. We had lunch which we cant fault, a drink, and got a cheap handy taxi into Kilkenny, 5mins away. Very friendly staff, and would definitly recommend it to other travellers.

The hotel is modern and comfortable. The carpet and the furniture are all new. The staff was nice and helpful. We got a room for 59 Euros with a full Irish breakfast included.

The hotel is very easy to find. It is located in the south east of Kilkenny, on the ring road of the city, inside a retail park. The Kells Priory is a short and easy drive from there and it is worth seeing. If you get there late and don't want to drive around, there is a Kentucky Fried Chicken in the retail park. The city center is just a 5 minutes drive from there.

After a long drive we were looking for anywhere to stay. We stumbled across the Days Hotel and figured that it would be just a place to sleep.

The hotel was clean and bright, our room was a good size with tea/coffee facilities and comfortable beds. The bathroom was also a good size, with good water pressure and plenty of hot water.

The breakfast consisted of eggs, bacon, sausages, tomato, toast, cereal and pastries. The food while mass produced, was tasty and very filling.

As we were continuing on to Dublin, the hotel were nice enough to arrange a booking for us at one of the Dublin Days Hotels.

Overall we had a positive experience staying at this hotel and would definately go back.

Was expecting a run of the mill "sales rep hotel" in the league of Travel Lodge, Holiday Inn or Travel Inn and would not have been disappointed (unless it were as poor as Premier Travel Inn), however we were very pleasantly surprised with this hotel.

Yes it is a standard hotel building, but the quality of service and cleanliness was quite a way above "standard". Reception, Bar and Housekeeping were all great, but what really impressed was the food at breakfast and dinner, this was of a standard only found in more upmarket restaurants, although a small menu, everything was cooked to a very high standard and the quantities were more than adequate.

Location easy to access and handy to city centre (no bus service though)

A very good and refreshing long weekend that was worth every penny.

Kilkenny, though small must one of the most beautiful cities in Ireland.

stayed in this hotel for just one night.very very basic hotel.the reception is the bar,and the restaurant all in one basicially!!! receptionists were courteous and efficient and that is all the hotel has going for it really.the bar was not staffed at 10 pm had to wait 10 mins for someone to come from somewhere to serve.the noise from 2.15a.m. until 6 a.m. was unreal.then breakfast the waitress was so grumpy and really didnt want to be there and i observed her with paying guests and there is no way i would have accepted her behaviour so rudeand argumentative. the choice was fairly good but dont ask for anything extra. all in all not a place that i would reccommend to any one.thank god didnt have dinner there. wont be back!!!!!!
