“Good weekend,room not 4star standard”
Reviewed September 7, 2009

We stayed in the Newpark,my fiance and I for a relaxing weekend break...The hotel itself,reception,restaurant etc is lovely and the staff couldn't have been nicer but the room was a huge dissapointment,it was clean but looked tatty and dated...not the rooms pictured on the brochure and not i expected for 4 star ,and contrary to the other reviews i found the room to be cold,not freezeing but it could have been warmer,the food in the restaurant was delicious and again the waiters and waitresses were very nice,the noise in the corridors at night was also a problem,could hear people talking and doors slamming till 6.30 in the morning.Its a lovely hotel and i would stay there again but i would be sure to ask for one of the newer rooms as i felt it wasn't up to scratch.

Booked a family room it was lovely , bathroom was lovely, but room was way to hot. Had 11yr old and 13yr old with us the only thing for them was the swimming pool, there was a kids club but only suitable for younger children. Found staff very slow in the bar, food was very basic, didnt like Gullivers Restaurant and the breakfast was not great either. Would not go back near it very disappointed.

Just back from a 3 day stay in the hotel. We had a lovely time. The children aged 6,3 and 1 really enjoyed it. The leisure centre was ideal and the outdoor vitality heated pool for adults only was fantastic. The downside of the stay was the food. Breakfast was good but lunch/evening meal in the bar and the restaurant was not great. Very poor selection. I suffer from a wheat allergy and so there was very little I could eat myself. The staff were lovely but in my opinion it does not match up to a 4 star rating. However, I can't not emphasise enough that it was good value for money. Very very very child friendly and we met some lovely families during our stay. A word of warning the water is yellow but I did ask about this and I was told that the water in Kilkenny is generally this colour but completely safe. I would recommend this hotel to a family who need a short break but not for a long stay.

We stayed in the Newpark Hotel on a 2 night break on the 6th and 7th July and were really impressed. The decor throughout the Hotel is lovely and the bedromms are very spacious and comfortable. We had dinner in the restaurant on one evening - the food was very good and the service was excellent . The Leisure facilities were excellent . We had a very relaxing break and would reccommend this hotel.

Just returned from a short break at the NEWPARK HOTEL

We arrived to the hotel mid afternoon and were greeted by a lovely young lady who was efficient and helpful.

Our room was on the ground floor, the room was lovely - comfortable and of course clean - love the lay out of the bathroom

We ate in the bistro on the first evening and I could not fault the food and service.

We looked for a taxi to bring us into town to shop and the receptionist was very helpful and even suggested some good shops.

There was a wedding on the Thursday during our stay - the hotel was busy - but the staff was all so efficient and it was second nature to them.

We ate in the dining room and I must say the food was superb - they have a great team there.

I must congratulate the hotels management on its fine team and excellent customer care

The hotel was lovely, rooms very spacious and clean. The staff were very helpful and happy to help out with any queries we had about our stay in Kilkenny. The restaurant Gullivers was fabulous, something on the menu for everyone. The locarion was good just a short walk to the city, shops and some of the sights. Overall we had a great time staying at the Newpark.
