Reviewed October 3, 2012

Wonderful hotel, we have stayed here as a family (2 adults and 2 kids) many times over the last few years. Lovely dining and cater well for kids. We hope to be back again soon and we are looking forward to it as it always delivers.

Great value for a weekend break - travelled with 4 other families and hotel was great for all of us. Ate in bar on first night - good range of food and waitress was so good with all our kids and settled them into their own little area. Staff in general were really good all weekend - we had a really good meal in dining room on second night - food was top class and again service excellent.

Overall, the hotel was nice, convenient, and easy to find. The hotel is about 1/2 mile away from the center of action so its best if you have a car but not a bad walk if you don't. We did have a car and parking was easy and free. Overall, I have no complaints about the hotel. Everything was nice and met my expectations in every way.

Tips:
Drinks are good at Matt the Millers with nice live music however do not eat there.
Jerpoint abbey was short drive away and well worth the trip with a very informative inexpensive tour.

Stayed 2 nights , fri and sat, early sept for a family wedding - Nice location (10-15 min walk to KK centre) - although room was quite small for a double, staff were very nice and the food was good. Hotel itself is nice, the reception room was spacious and has a very nice outdoor area for smokers. All in all would definitely recommend this hotel for a couple trip away. Every bit a 4 star

We stayed here on a Saturday night when there was a wedding and a large 60th birthday party going on. Typical Kilkenny, even the hotel was buzzing.
Pool and Spa area were very nice, even though the infinity pool was out of order, which was a real shame, especially as one of the local regulars told us how nice it was. Outside in the cold weather sounded really nice!
Rooms were very clean, spacious and comfortable. Nothing flash but that wasn't being sought by us. We had asked in advance for a quiet room, and they really gave us the last room on one of the wings. So top marks for the staff here!
We didn't dine in the hotel, however had a quiet afternoon drink in the bar which was very nice indeed, especially with the buzz of a wedding party around us. Service was very attentative and pleasant. We returned later that night to the bar, where there was live music and a good atmosphere, seems the locals use it as well which bodes well.
We had a great time in Kilkenny, and the hotel which is a 10 minute walk into town is great value for money, especially with the nive amenities that it provides.

Room Tip: Room 358 is well away from the action if you want a really quiet room away from any noisy hotel gues...

We stayed 6 nights here and had a wonderful time. Our room was lovely, looking out over the back' towards their mini farm. There were a number of weddings whilst we were there, but we weren't disturbed at all. The leisure centre was really well run, although the infinity pool was out of order for a couple of days, the other pool and spa made up for it. But a special mention must go to the brilliant complimentary bicycles - we had great fun,riding long the riverside an would recommend them to everyone. Can't wait to come back.
