“Nice hotel with a great breakfast”
Reviewed June 11, 2014

Popped into the Springhill for a last minute stay. The hotel was busy enough, so we got a ground floor room and got it at one of the best rates in Kilkenny that night on looking around. Lady at reception was polite and friendly. We had a ground floor room - small and basic but clean. Room was nice and quiet, not much noise from the corridors thankfully. Comfortable bed and we got a nice nights sleep.

Breakfast was busy in the morning but we were quickly given a seat. The buffet style breakfast was very nice, fresh and tasty. Good size items and frequently replenished when running low.
There was a hen night on the night before and with the hotel being very busy, I really noticed how the staff did an excellent job at breakfast ensuring everything went smoothly and breakfast items were replenished quickly even beyond the set breakfast times.

Nice hotel for those looking for something clean and basic. No frills. Great night sleep and a very good location.

I've stayed in this hotel a couple of times now and I could not think of one thing I wasn't happy with, room was lovely, food beautiful, swimming pool was amazing, and as for the staff they were excellent always friendly up for a chat and wanting to help. Honestly couldn't fault it will definitely be back again.

I had the pleasure of staying here for the first time in February with my family. Clean spacious bedrooms, good quality food and excellent in house entertainment for children. Staff are friendly and provide a personalised service which can be lacking in many big hotels.

This comfortable budget-friendly hotel has recently been modernised. I stayed 3 nights on the second floor in a spacious airy family room in comparison to the fairly cramped conditions of my colleague who stayed in a regular double room on the floor below. I would recommend spending the extra €20 or €30 especially if you're there more than one night.

Short stay here and to be honest I couldn't recommend it to anyone.

On arrival there was a national vote for a general election occuring. which meant the car park was full of political hangers on not spending. I explained to the staff that for the price of the hotel I expected a parking space at the very least but they where said there where not able to assist, all I got was a shrug of the shoulders and told to park on the main national road to the front in the hard shoulder or go down to a public car park about a 5 minute walk away which was not good enough considering the rain. It was disappointing, I didn't expect them to go out and physically move a car, however the management should have made provisions for guests as the car park was like a jungle with cars thrown everywhere. Had to wait in the car park for 20 minutes in order to wait for a space to become available.

The bar staff where really nice guys and I enjoyed a few drinks in there.

The hotel is not very clean and quite dated, I found myself sticking to the floor around the bathroom area / leisure center area.

Breakfast was lovely and great value.

Dear Decky-Eire 86

Thank you for taking the time to post your review on Trip Advisor following your recent stay at the SpringhillCourt, Conference,leisure and Spa Hotel.

I would like to apologize for your recent stay not exceeding your expectations especially the lack of car park spaces .I hope you do appreciate that the local election count brought unprecedented traffic to the vicinity and unfortunately led to a situation where spaces weren’t available immediately which we regret.

However this was an exception rather than the norm as excluding this event we usually have ample car parking to cater for a large volume of guests.
I would appreciated if you could contact me a below email address the next time your in
Kilkenny area.

Yours sincerely,

We stayed here from the 16th - 19th may. We had an absolute ball, both rooms were lovely, clean and comfortable. The food was really good both breakfast and dinner. The staff were very helpful and we had such a laugh with Ritchie the barman. He was so friendly and nothing was too much trouble for him. We would definently visit again.
