my husband and I have stayed several times in Kilkenny, a beautiful city, but this time we stayed at the Kilford Arms Hotel recommended by some friends . We certainly were not disappointed It is a great spot, city centre, very friendly professional staff, the rooms are spacious and very clean. We did not eat at the Kilford but if breakfast is anything to go by, food also excellent Thanks to all my husband and I will be back and definitely recommending to our friends and family Great value for money

Big thank you to all the Kilford Staff for such an amazing hen weekend-there was nothing they couldnt do for us! We were there for two nights and between the Karaoke, the cocktail class and the nightclub we never actually left! I would definately reccommend this hotel to any groups or parties-maybe not the best place for a quiet weekend away but thats not what we were looking for so we were happy!!! We were right in the city centre aswell which was fair handy.Thanks again for everything-we'll be back!

This place should be closed down by the health authorities. In all my life I have never seen such a dirty unhygienic hotel, absolutely disgusting, myself and my wife stayed here some months back, when we were checking in there was another man checking out due to the hygiene of his room, the manger was so rude to him and told him that there was nothing wrong with the room, he just shook his head and left, myself and my wife they went to our room, the lift stunk, the carpets in the hall ways were smelly and stained, and our room was just as nice, the bed sheets were stained with the odd black hair here and there, the floors where sticky as were the bed side tables, the bathroom was disgusting and the ironing board and dresser chair were filthy, i would not recommend staying here unless you have absolutely no standards, worst experience ever.

Stayed in this hotel for one night and I have to say it was full of charm, the staff were very friendly and nothing was any trouble to them. The location was excellent as we were in the centre of Kilkenny with free car parking!! I would definitely go back to this hotel.
