    Convenient location with ample car parking nearby. Friendly and helpful staff. Excellent bar food at very good value. As the restaurant is closed on Sunday night, the bar area is converted to restaurant style service (white tablecloths and candle lit). Despite being located city centre, there was no detectable noise.

    The double room is quite small.

    the location was great for getting to resteraunts, shops and bars. the rooms were spacious and comfortable

    our room faced out on to the streets and there is a late bar morrisons beside it so we had to listen to the noise from this up until 5.00 am in the morning as people congregated outside the hotel. grand if your on a hen weekend and you get little sleep but i would not recommend staying if you want to relax.

    We liked the ambiance, cleanliness, food presentation, old style comfort, bar and restaurant facilities, friendly staff. Free carparking nearby.

    Music was a bit loud until 2am downstairs in night club but windows were fairly soundproof to ease noise.

    Friendly service. Clean room. Nice breakfast. Top location in the city center.

    Not sure if I should blame the hotel for this, but Kilkenny is horribly noisy on Friday night and during the weekend. Students/youngsters party till late at night and the nearby dancing(s) will make sure you'll miss out on any sleep you had planned. On any weekday however, it is very nice.

    We spent 3 nights at the hotel and enjoyed every minute of our stay, The staff were amazingly helpful, effecient and friendly, the room was spotless and comfortable. Service in the bar and resturant was excellent and nothing was too much trouble for the staff. A lovely hotel in a great location, we will definitely be back.

    Hotel in the centre of Kilkenny.Would not call this hotel a four star it is a three star. Room very nice but bathroom needs work.The fan in the ceiling was not working and the paint around it on the ceiling was flaking off. Around the bath a bit grubby not dirty but wear and tear. Staff very friendly and welcoming.

    Staff were very friendly. Room was very nice and bed very comfortable. Perfectly located in the city.

    Not really a biggy but I booked a twin room and when I got there the 2 single beds were pushed up right beside each other so I had to do a bit of furniture moving to turn it into a less 'intimate' twin room.

    We enjoyed our stay at the hotel our room was nice and the staff were friendly .the location of the hotel was perfect . the only downfall was it is a noisy hotel with lots of door banging and noise from the pub below but if this is not a problem for you as it wasn't for us its perfect.
