I stayed there recently with some work colleagues, the hotel has just added a spa and enfinity pool and the rooms have also received a revamp. Rooms spacious and clean tastefully decorated. Room service was with me in less then 10 minutes. The staff were extremely courteous and helpful. Very easy to get to and only 10 minutes from the centre of Kilkenny. Well worth a stay if you're visiting Kilkenny as it;s not in the heart of the city you'll actually get some sleep.
