“Stunning hotel”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 17, 2012

Went on a weekend break here with my boyfriend in October. Hotel is fabulous, and the reception area is really stunning. Rooms very spacious, very clean and lovely ensuite. The restaurant do great food and there was no problem getting a table even on a Saturday night. There was a wedding on in the hotel one of the nights we were there, but the event suite is over one side of the hotel, and so other guests in the bar weren't really disturbed which was great. We didn't go to the spa though we heard it was lovely, although we checked out the pet farm (out the back of the hotel! very funny) and it didn't take very long so if you have kids don't let that be a selling point. Altogether a really fabulous stay.

I love this hotel. It looks like a boutique hotel, even though it is big. I felt very welcome. Breakfast was excellent, with lovely porridge made to order. Top! Too bad I forgot my bathing stuff, so I could not use the pool. The bar was great too.

One of the best hotels that I've ever stayed in. Looks great inside and out. Lobby was stretched out with plenty of places to sit and visit, the rooms are very spacious, clean and comfortable (especially the beds). Absolutely LOVED the bathroom. Heated floor almost makes you want to curl up there for the night. lol The food was good and even though they were holding a wedding reception in the pub, we didn't feel neglected at all, plenty of room for everyone. Close to town center, but sidewalks are small and it's about 20min. So just be prepared. Took a tour of the spa and gym and it was just fantastic. Large windows to look out at the grounds. NICE!

We organised an annual night away for a group of 20 last weekend. Couldn't have been easier as the events manager - Yvonne - was really helpful. The Newpark is close enough to the city centre (10 to15 mins stroll) and has loads of free parking.
The hotel was recently renovated and the rooms and bathrooms are spotless and very comfortable. Dinner was very good and breakfast excellent. The service in the hotel from reception to the bar was efficient and friendly even though the hotel was quite busy.
I can't comment directly on the spa and pool but one of our party said it was lovely.
Thanks again to Yvonne and the rest of the staff for a hassle free very enjoyable night which all agreed was very good value

Just back from a weekend at the NewPark Hotel in Kilkenny. Great Hotel with service to match. The rooms are spacious and really very clean, the lobby is packed with very comfortable couches and armchairs, nice to sit and chat with friends. The Bar area is large and is staffed appropriately so no long delays. We ate in the Restaurant and, although it was set Menu the food was very good. Breakfast had lots of variety, although they were a little slow with the coffee due to lots of late arrivals at the same time. The only critical things I can say is that the heating is turned up to the max, which, if you don't think to turn the thermostat down before you go to bed you wake up boiling, the bathroom has underfloor heating, but unfortunately it was too hot to walk on as we hadn't turned down the heat. Would definitely stay again.

Stayed here recently for one night only on a room only basis as attending a wedding in hotel.
Good value stay, nice clean spacious room.
Sorry I cannot comment on the breakfast but from speaking to some of my fellow wedding guests the next morning, it appears to have been very good.
As a wedding venue, the function room is excellent.
