This was a really nice hotel, good location and nice rooms! Really liked the extra touch of the bottles of water provided in the room. Staff were friendly and helpful too. Though I would say it's a not a place to go for a quiet weekend - great and very lively bars!

Really poor hotel,staff very unprofessional and rude I would avoid at all costs! The staff don't have time for you and the manager is a joke. The rooms were filthy I don't know who is in charge of house keeping but they are running the place into the ground!

Everything is a short walk away, the staff were friendly, eager to help and efficient. The food was grand, the rooms were spacious, clean and everything worked perfectly. Would definitely reccommend and return!

When we arrived there was a mix up over our booking and it took almost ten minutes before a member of staff told the receptionist to allow us up to the room and not to have us standing in the lobby while it got sorted. That was a downer straight away for us

Very nice hotel, with charming & helpful staff. The food was very good & I would recommend it. Kilkenny is a beautiful city with lots to see & do. The castle itself is well worth a vist. The most interesting tour.

Had a fantastic stay here. The breakfast was brilliant, the dinner was fantastic and the room was gorgeous. The only downfall is the layout of the hotel, there's a lot of stairs and a lot of going up and down steps even after using the lift, I know there's not much the hotel can do about that but when booking...
