      The price of food in the bar was very high. Two salad plates and two coffees were nearly €27.00. One thing to watch for is that there was no net curtains on the windows, you either had to have the main curtains open or closed. Closed maid the room very dark and difficut to put make-up on in but if they were open (we were on the ground floor) anyone passing on the road could look in!

      The hotel was very good but the only thing that was poor was that there was no particular menue to suit kids only carvery luckily my daughter eats pasta otherwise we would have had to go outside the hotel. You shouls re look at bar food and seen as it is a family hotel there should be a menu to suit kids also as it was th bankholiday the kids club would have been good to have it open as the weather was wet otherwise pool etc was excellent.

      i stayed at the newpark last weekend for a wedding. Staff and service was excellent and indeed flawless. Hotel in general recieved a face lift since my last stay some years back and found the new look much iimproved, classic and clean-rooms are exceptionally comfortable. For a 4 star hotel, i would be expecting a hotel spa as to validate the price per rooms

      though a shower door would have been ideal.Breakfast would ideally be more welcomed until 12pm especially for wedding parties. perhaps hotel would consider allowing guests optional breakfast as room service?

      The spa treatments were wonderful - I had booked the signature package. I loved the relaxation room and platter of fresh fruits after. Very pleasant and welcoming staff. The bed was very comfortable in the bedroom. The bar/serving staff were extremely helpful with catering for my annoying food restrictions and went out of their way to ensure we were happy with our meal.

      A little bit noisy (I think there was a hen party on our corridor). A little thing, but thought it was odd that the reception desk was not right inside the front door. We ended up trailing our cases through the bar (difficult when it was full with rugby enthusiasts) and when heading back out to the car we met a wedding coming in the front door so nipped out through the bar again so as not to disturb or intrude. Just a little thing. Oh and with the 'signature' treatment, it would have been nice to enjoy my welcoming tea in the relaxation room and talked through how the treatments would go - just so I could fully relax into it. But the treatments were amazing, I was so relaxed after I need nodded off in the relaxation room. Grateful to the fresh water and fruit platter to per me back up. Very indulgent indeed!!

      I did like the lobby with the firestove.

      After a heavy rain ,the ceiling in the room we were on started leaking.Also this room was in another newbuilt area of the hotel that looked cheap and some of the parts outside the room havent been painted even.After complaining and transfering to another room,that room had everwhere spiders and spiderwebs,plus the heating wasnt working at all in the main room,only in the bathroom.I wouldnt really recomend that hotel . I have to add here that near the lobby there were mtf walls that havent been even plastered or painted.

      Very convenient for city.We ate in both bar and diningroom and enjoyed them very much,Leisure centre very good.

      On the first morning of our stay the hairdryer in room went on fire ,we reported it immediately but felt the response was very poor. As far as we are aware no one checked the hairdryer during our 2-day stay. We felt for health and safety reasons this was priority.

      I really enjoyed the outdoor hot tub and the spa facilities.

      I found the rooms were way too warm. I felt the breakfast could have been of a higher standard.

      Stayed 3 nights for a wedding. Wedding drinks receptionin the lobbey was excellant. Also the food and service at the meal was of a very high qua;ity.

      perhaps there could be moe lift facillities. Corridors are long especially if you need to return to room frequently.

      Stayed in the Newpark while attending a wedding. Got a fantastic deal on Booked.net which was for a standard room. Common areas i.e. Foyer, Bar and fuction room were newly decorated and really lovely. Room was fine for the night. It was basic in its finish but clean and had everything you needed. Did see a superior room which a friend was staying in. This was gorgeous but did cost twice as much as my room. Food was excellent, staff were lovely. Location is a few mins outside Kilkenny city but is within walking distance and having stayed here a lot one of the best hotels in the area
