Have stayed many times ! Love the rooms, however booked in tonight for 1 night. Got room 240( newly refurbished last week) strong smell of paint , which I got over but the noise from the night club underneath. Have video to prove.avoid any room on second floor with even number as they back onto night club.

Lovely homely hotel with real fires in the reception and bars. Friendly staff. We stayed for one night. Our shower was stuck on very hot so we could not have a shower. Although the breakfast was excellent we waited nearly twenty five minutes to be served. We discovered that the poor waitress was on her own that morning. She did... More

A group of friends and I spent NYE in KIlkenny and dined in the restaurant on arrival to the city. We were impressed by the service, the food and the price so we returned with a bigger group the next day! Even though we did not stay in the hotel we took note of the nice atmosphere around the bar,... More

Very pleasant night spent here 2 weeks before xmas and in desperate need of a good nights sleep. Checked in by a very professional lady whose name escapes (from Urlingford,Kilkenny) who gave us a warm welcome and a lovely room. Traditional style hotel with lovely touches I look forward to staying again sometime in the future.

My boyfriend brought me for my birthday and New Year's Eve 2015/2016 as he wanted to make it special for me. He picked this place as it was a 4* hotel in a good location of Kilkenny and had decent reviews. On arrival that staff did not make any effort to make us feel welcome! They were rude and unfriendly.... More

Walked in off the street and scored a suite with breakfast for €85.... The room was huge and the bathroom was almost as big as other places we had stayed in! ! Right in the centre of town it made for a good base to explore from. Added to this was a secure car park close by for €3 for... More

Our room was clean, quite a nice room, very quiet. Shower was in the bath so may be a problem for some. Staff helpful and pleasant. Parking was in the local car park across the road. Central location. We enjoyed our 2 night stay.

Bleah. Our room was mentioned by number in several previous reviews, and it's all true. I have a hunch tour groups stay here, which is NOT the crowd I trust for reviews. I guess since we booked individually we got the crappy room--a room with a broken bed, literally sinking down on one side--and a shower so bad that (after... More
