Do not visit this hotel. I have never set foot in such a dump in all my life. We needed to get something to eat and ended up in the Metropole bar/"restaurant". Before taking a seat we asked the barman if they were still serving food (they still had a lunch menu displayed outside the door at 6.15pm), we were... More

Booked a night away here last week. When we showed up our booking wasn't showing up on the computer. It turns out I booked a non refundable night in two weeks time instead of the date we arrived. The girl who was dealing with us was so so friendly and couldn't have been more helpful. She booked us in no... More

I was in Kilkenny with a group of friends on a Saturday, when we stopped into the Metropole for some bar food. I ordered a burger and chips. It was a good 20 minutes before my friends were served their unappetising meals, and after another 20 minutes, and despite assurances that mine was 'on the way', I insisted that they... More

Booked as a group of eight, instead of twin rooms, we had a twin room and what can only be described as a hostel room with bunk beds for six! How can this be classed as a hotel? The photos on their website bear no resemblance to the rooms we stayed in. The free WiFi advertised on the website is... More

I booked this place last minute for one night. There was no wifi in the rooms and the TV did not work. There were two hallway doors outside of our bedroom door which were slammed open and then slammed shut all night by folks constantly coming and going. I understand that guests have the right to come and go all... More

Almost a week ago I booked a room here. It was to be for tomorrow night and I was delighted to get an excellent deal in such a central location. However, just yesterday evening The Metropole contacted me to tell me there was a mistake with my booking and there was no room available. The man I was talking to... More
