        • Family with children

          I liked the spacious room and the contemporary furnishings. I also liked the dining room and thought the breakfast choice was very good and the service excellent. The parking arrangements were really convenient with the multi storey car park right opposite the hotel and the parking provided free.

          The hotel staff and accomodation were lovely but the best thing about the hotel was its location to shops and nightlife.

          The buffet breakfast was very tasty. The rooms were very comfortable, in particular the beds.

          Location very good, close to all amenties in Kilkenny city. Excellent breakfast, staff very helpful

          Room very small, asked for a double but got a twin.

          Lovely hotel in a great, central location.

          Bedroom quite warm, could do with air-conditioning. Also, quite a lot of noise from street below.

          • Average rating
        • Older travelers

          The hotel was comfortable, staff was very helpful and the hotel was very central which made it easy to get around.

          No complaints except we had a wait for breakfast but this probably due to a lot of guests turning up at the same time, no fault to staff,

          This was not a deluxe room! The beds were uncomfortable and the bathroom was on the shabby side. There was no minibar as advertised. On the second day, the complimentary shampoos etc were not replaced. Would not return to this hotel.

        • Older travelers

          Hotel really central and runs seamlessly. Lovely spa area and smashing breakfast.

          Really nice hotel, however it was very expensive for what we had. We booked a 'deluxe' room and frankly it was very ordinary. If it was less expensive it would have been excellent but 169 euros for one night BB is way too much to pay, even in July

          Great central location, that's where it ends.Didn't find rooms stuffy as suggested in other reviews.

          Night staff would benefit from doing a hospitality course, breakfast service terrible, food quality just okay, no late checkout on Sunday yet was told that there is early check-in!!?? Street noise very loud from first floor. Single, std double and deluxe double/twin are all the same room type in our groups experience. Parking fee should be absorbed in room charge, room rates don't match quality/value in other parts of Ireland

          Great location, easily reached from the train station, within walking distance of everything. Also great if you just want to stay indoors!

          A better selection of beers in the bar would be nice - but I could say that about any hotel I've ever been to.

        • Older travelers

          The breakfast was very good and of a high quality.

          The room was extremely warm and we could not turn the heating off. It was also above the delivery bays and noise levels where extremely high from 6:00am in the morning as we had to leave the window open. The bed was far too hard as was the pillows and we had two very restless nights!

          Good location.

          Breakfast isn't the best (buffet sytle) and the car park closed at midnight which meant we had to find alternative parking. The hotel did pay for this though as we were told it the car park would be open until 2am.

          Location, almost Wheel chair friendly and the solo singer entertainment was excellent.

        • Couple

          Good location for shopping and Kilkenny castle. Nice staff.

          Small windows with a poor view that overlooked a side street. The room was stuffy so we kept windows open and had to listen to noisy garbage trucks each morning. Expensive room service for a breakfast that was reheated and not good.
