My boyfriend brought me for my birthday and New Year's Eve 2015/2016 as he wanted to make it special for me. He picked this place as it was a 4* hotel in a good location of Kilkenny and had decent reviews. On arrival that staff did not make any effort to make us feel welcome! They were rude and unfriendly....

Walked in off the street and scored a suite with breakfast for €85.... The room was huge and the bathroom was almost as big as other places we had stayed in! ! Right in the centre of town it made for a good base to explore from. Added to this was a secure car park close by for €3 for...

Our room was clean, quite a nice room, very quiet. Shower was in the bath so may be a problem for some. Staff helpful and pleasant. Parking was in the local car park across the road. Central location. We enjoyed our 2 night stay.

Bleah. Our room was mentioned by number in several previous reviews, and it's all true. I have a hunch tour groups stay here, which is NOT the crowd I trust for reviews. I guess since we booked individually we got the crappy room--a room with a broken bed, literally sinking down on one side--and a shower so bad that (after...

I was satisfied with the food and enjoyed the atmosphere of the hotel! Staying in a hotel located within walking distance to all of our planned activity destinations was perfect, too. We we able to find our way back without a problem, as the hotel was easy to spot on the corner, too.

Very run down hotel dilapidated hotel. Rooms and decor were terrible. Lucky we had twin beds as the double rooms looked to be so uncomfortable and cramped. Breakfast was very good and staff were very pleasant, courteous and helpful.

I love this hotel! I had last minute details that needed to be changed and when I got to the hotel - it was 'no problem.' There was both a wedding and a tour bus that came in during our stay and it didn't affect us whatsoever - and I cringe at the thought of both. Our room was easy...

Good quality, spacious room which was spotless. Breakfast had a good selection and service was swift. Staff were very nice without being over the top. The bar is nice and cosy and just right for a quiet drink before you hit the town.
