“Cannot fault this hotel. Excellent all-round hotel.”
Reviewed March 4, 2013

We stayed at the Seven Oakes Hotel in Carlow from Friday to Monday. The rooms are a good size with a double bed and single bed in each and a modern, bright bathroom. Tea making faciliites were available, including biscuits.
The beds were extremely comfortable. Although the hotel was fully booked we did not hear any noise late at night.
The breakfast was well organised and piping hot, as was the bar and restaurant food. The staff were extremely friendly and helpful and everyone seemed to be in a 'party' mood, but not noisy. The food and drink prices were very resonable and Carlow itself is only 25 minutes from Kilkenny - a town everyone should visit. A hairdryer, iron and ironing board is in every room. They have a country band in the ballroom every Wednesday night for the remainder of the year. The Leisure Centre is bright and very clean and well equipped, with very friendly staff. I will definitely be visiting the Seven Oakes hotel again as soon as possible. Wireless internet was excellent and available everywhere in the hotel.

Room Tip: Book well in advance in case of disappointment.

Spent 3 nights in the hotel. This is a lovely 3 star just minutes from Carlow town centre. Food was very good, staff were nice and helpful, rooms were clean and attended to everyday. Downside to the hotel was our room was located above the recepition area which was very noisey. As such on Friday and Saturday night there was a lot of people outside chatting and smoking whilst we tried to sleep. It might be an idea for the hotel to either move the smoking area or advise people of such when they allocate them the room. Pint of stout is excellent however no entertainment in the pub any of the nights we stayed.

In summary I would go back again but would look for a room away from the recepition for a nice quiet sleep.

Room Tip: Dont stay above the recepition.

My husband and i stayed just one night, the staff could not have been more helpful, and the hospitality was excellent, from reception desk to the bar staff, the hotel is within easy walking distance of the town centre. Excellent value for money, we will stay here again.

I stayed here as part of a hen party. The hotel were great in that they put all of the party in the one corridor on the top floor of the hotel. This worked really well for everyone attending the party. Our room was spotless and the bathrooms are really excellent with heated mirrors a nice addition. Breakfast was buffet style, very tasty with plenty of choices. I must comment on how helpful the staff were. No matter what the request they delivered, with a great attitude & fast service.

Room Tip: If you have a baby with you, make sure to request a room on the first or second floor. The third &am...

The check-in process was excellent.

The room was clean and spacious with facilities and decor typical of 3 star hotels. However, it overlooked the front door and was noisy with people and taxis coming and going into the early hours of the morning -- that's my only complaint.

The hotel's location is good. Easily accessed by car and then just a few minutes walk to the town centre.

The hotel bar was busy, mostly with people having evening meals. We found the food good, with generous servings. Staff were friendly and helpful.

Breakfast was very good.

Overall, this is a friendly hotel, offering excellent value and easy access to the town centre.

Room Tip: Ask not to be overlooking the main entrance if you want a quiet/early night.
