Did anybody ever see the movie 'The Shining'? Well theres no need to! Just come to the Clubhouse!!I expected to see the toddler on a tricycle in the hallway! The hotel was musty and old fashioned. I would seriously reccomend 'Pimp my hotel'!!! With no offence intended, I felt like I was at an old folks home.The room, however, was satisfactory, yet the 'double bed' requested appeared to be two single beds pushed together, and when we brought this to the attention of the manager, he was less than helpful. To sum up, I would not reccomend this hotel to anybody, and i strongly regard it as a waste of money.

We stayed here in August 2003 and it was an absolute nightmare. When we arrived into our room there was a stench of smoke. When we tried to have a shower - it didn't work and when we asked for it to be fixed, we were told - 'Could you not just have a bath'!!!!!!!!! We stayed in this room for the first night (no shower) and moved rooms the following morning to the tiniest room i have ever seen in my life (bare in mind I am only 5 feet tall). The bed was so springy it left us both with back aches for the week. The hotel is filthy dirty and ancient - so ancient that it was actually part of the City Bus Tour as the oldest hotel in Kilkenny. And yes - it was - and it hasn't been renovated in my opinion since the 18th century. It was just horrible.

Our experience at this early 18th Century Hotel was marvellous. This is a rare old building which has remained inhabited since the 1700s, and is decorated and furnished in lavish old style. What
a treat to be able to stay there, expecially in such a historic city as Kilkenny.

Unlike modern hotels,(ubiquitous, you could be in any city, they are all so similar),you know you are experiencing a part of Kilkenny's history and unique charm of the old world.

Wonderful food and entertainment, not to mention the kindness of the staff.
