Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed July 22, 2013

Stayed here the weekend of the 12th July 2013 the weather was beautiful. The hotel was lovely and just a few minutes away from shops and nightlife.
Car parking was just across the road but charged 5 Euro per night.
The staff were so friendly and helpful, we didn't eat in the hotel other than breakfast and it was lovely. There was a leisure center with spa pool etc attached but we didn't use it as the weather was so hot we were out mostly.
The only problem was the rooms were so hot it was so unbearable but we rarely have really hot weather like that. We had a fan in the room but it wasn't really very effective, proper air conditioning was needed that weekend. There wasn't really anywhere to sit out in the sun other than a garden that was mainly shaded with trees and out of the way but then again how often do we have weather like that. It was like being away in Spain and having no air conditioning
All in all this hotel was very good and i would definately recommend it.

Stayed for one night recently.The girl at reception was very helpful with information about places to eat and drink and the hotel amenities, even though she was really busy with phone calls etc. and I think that she was training another girl as well. The rooms were very comfortable,and spotless. the food was excellent, and the staff were very friendly,very helpful, and very efficient.I can't say enough good things about this hotel and it's great staff. I'm going to stay there again soon.

We stayed here in July. Great hotel all the staff very friendly and helpful. Location fab great for shopping restaurants, sight seeing. Kilkenny castle and grounds are beautiful. We stayed for 3 nights, nice selection for breakfast to suit everybody. We had dinner one evening vegetarian option very bland, and the fillet chicken was too dry. steak was good. Overall we really enjoyed our stay the kids loved the pool and will return again.

We stayed here just for 1 night in July as we were only away for a night. The hotel is in a fantastic location just a few minutes walk from the night life and great choice of shops. The staff are very friendly and go out of their way to be helpful. We were very lucky and were offered an upgrade to a suite, beautiful room and balcony. Much appreciated in the hot weather. So its worth asking for an upgrade. Had breakfast and dinner in the hotel, lovely food, good value. The bar and out door terrace are a great place to relax.

Room Tip: Ask if there is a chance of an upgrade,
