Beech View Self Catering Apartments
Reviewed May 5, 2010

We travelled to Kilkenny as part of a Hen party on the May bank holiday weekend. There were 18 of us so we rented an entire block of apartments (1 penthouse, 1 three-bedroom and 1 two-bedroom). We booked the accommodation well in advance and Sharon (the owner) could not have been more helpful from Day One. As it was a Hen Party, she offered to organise our meal for us in Langtons - the price included three course meal, taxi to the establishment and entry into the niteclub. This was all extremely reasonably priced and everything went without a hitch.

Special mention to Langtons as my aunt uses a wheelchair and they could not have been more helpful, running around after her with a portable ramp any time she needed to get from A to B. My friends had also organised party bags for everyone, which the staff at Langtons were happy to set out for them before we arrived.

The decor in the apartments was stunning and everyone slept very comfortably. The amenities were great too, with a fully kitted out kitchen and TVs in every bedroom! We all had an absolute ball, and the taxi service recommended by Sharon was so reliable, we never had to worry about getting anywhere - the lady driver was always on hand!

I would defintely recommend Beechview Apartments and we are dying to return already!

We were a group of six golfers looking for a nice apartment to accommodate us for 3 nights over a weekend and Beechview fitted the bill perfectly. On arrival we met the owner, Sharon, who was very friendly and helpful. She helped us organise ourselves for golf in surrounding golf courses and even organised an evening meal and entertainment in Langtons pub for us on the saturday evening.
The apartment is very modern and very comfortable. Its in a great location just a couple of mins taxi ride into town. Sharon provided us with a number of a local taxi number to bring us in and out of town which was a great service. The location of the apartment is ideal as you dont have to drive into the city centre and also its a lot quieter than the city centre which is a bit hectic at the weekend.

Overall this is a great place to stay for a weekend in Kilkenny. It works out a lot more reasonable than booking a hotel and its great to have your own privacy in a very modern and comfortable apartment. Thumbs up to Beechview.

Well, first of all, I must address those accusing the property for the bad neighbourhood. There's nothing bad about it except it's really remote from the center - good 20 min walking. But it's warking by the bars first, and then by the quite wide street, so I can't imagine something wrong with.

Now, the remoteness. It was quite a deal, as it realy felt as if put out to any other outskirt of any other town. There's was nothing that felt "Kilkenny" around it. Plus, there's gasoline station in front of your window. But as there's no any other aparthotels in the town, it's not like you have a choice if you need one. We needed.

Place itself is clean, well organized and owners are very sweet. Sharon spent good fifteen minutes with me on the phone guiding us through the roundabouts (and there're plenty!), and Mark, her husband, stayed another half an hour after showing us the place, to explain about the area and give some recommendations.

It has private parking in the inner yard, and there's a small grocery/supermarket just downstares owned by the same people, so if you arrive late you won't have trouble grubbing something to eat. And there're two supermarkets (Liddle and some other) just 5 min away.

There's no reception, but Sharon is always a phone call away, so it's not a problem.

There's a heating system, that was very efficient. Kitchen was well equipped. Rooms were decorated in modern style. The only problem was with bathrooms. We didn't manage to heat the main bathroom, so we mainly used the one in master bedroom, which was really small. And the thing with faucets! I'd expect with recently redecorated place to have a combined faucet and not two separate ones (for hot and cold water). This was indeed the tourture of the day. The hot water was really hot, and the cold was ice cold. So washing hands was really a challenge.

I think a price is a bit high considering the location.

Other than that - we had no complains at all and I can safely recommend the place for anybody seeking the aparthotel in the area.
