Have stayed here many times for a night out in Kilkenny its in the very centre! Staff are so friendly on one occasion they gave us a bottle of prosecco for my friends birthday which was a lovely touch, perfect place to put the head down after a night in Kilkenny! would stay again!

After reading the reviews for this place, I was dreading staying here. Although we were told it was a 5pm check-in, we arrived at 3pm and were given the key by a lovely girl in the Asian restaurant downstairs. Our room was on the first floor, and quiet, although the town was heaving, as Rod Stewart was playing there. Very... More

We stayed here on the Saturday of the May bank holiday weekend as we were attending a wedding in the Rivercourt Hotel. When we checked in everything was ok but then when I got to the room it was Tiny. I didn't mind this so much as all we wanted was a clean bed for the night and a shower... More

Given the wall decorations, the room seemed to have been recently converted from a kid's bedroom, and given the grubbiness of the room, the shabbiness of the furnishings, and the filth of the carpet, it seems to have been a rundown orphanage. The shower door was broken, which at least allowed a little water to be spread over the tiled... More

Booked a twin room. We checked in at 9pm and had to pay up front - big mistake. The room seemed cold but we left quickly as we had plans. When we returned at 1am the room was freezing and the radiator wasn't working. No extra blankets provided. Woke up to a still freezing room the following morning and tried... More

There was a problem with the booked room but staff were most accommodating and upgraded us to another establishment at no extra cost. She did everything she possibly could to accommodate us . very impressive customer service.

Were were traveling with 4 children and attending a wedding in the hotel next door. We were quiet and respectful when we came home at 1:30am however, no one else was! The place was full of Hens and Stags and they were running amok in the halls until 4:30 am. They were shouting in their rooms, having a party in... More
