This was a rather swish looking hotel, and well located in the centre of town. My key cards would not allow entry to my room, so I returned to reception to have the keys rebooted. I could still not gain access, so returned a third time to reception. The young woman on duty was not very friendly or particularly helpful....

I can't really fault this hotel on anything: the location is perfect, the breakfast was delicious and the staff really go out of their way to make sure that you have a pleasant stay. Having never been to Kilkenny before, the receptionist was more than happy to list of a number of bars and restaurants worth a visit: and they...

This is a very nice hotel in the centre of Kilkenny which has an adjoining leisure centre. The room was very clean and comfortable. The bed was very comfortable. It was a double bed and not just two single beds pushed together.The breakfast was included in the price and it was a very good standard for a hotel buffet. They...

Now that it's all over, myself and Aidan just want to express our appreciation to all the staff.

Reviewed 10 November 2014

The reason that this is not a "five star" review, is because it is a review of two halves. It is a modern hotel, and my personal preference is for those with a little more character. This said, we spent a very enjoyable stay at the Ormonde. A minor niggle, was the somewhat "graunchy" car park barrier, outside our window,...

The Ormonde doesn't feel like a 4 star, more a 2-3 star . The bed was hard enough to give me backache, there were stains on the walls, the decor was dated, the bath was far too shallow and about the only thing that was good was the swimming pool. I was quite disappointed as the 2 nights cost us...
