My friend had surprised me with a night away for my birthday. She opted for this hotel purely because of the night club in the hotel itself. Check in was quick and we were shown to our room. It was so out dated and so hot! The heater had obviously been on long before we had got there. Our safe...

visited Kilkenny for a short break, stayed at this hotel, hotel had everything, food, entertainment no need to leave the building if you didn't wish too, but location also excellent for anyone wishing to venture further(which we did) Check in was efficient, was a bit of a maze to get to room, we had to be shown the first time,...

A good value hotel but nothing special. The rooms were nice and tidy and quite large. However, the bathroom only had a bath and shower head which is not the most comfortable set up. The games room was mediocre and the restaurant was uninviting. Other than that it is nice if you aren't staying too long.

We stayed here with a group of friends and it does the job- a clean room with a comfortable bed in an ideal location. Its nothing fancy and if i was staying in Kilkenny with my husband for a relaxing break or travelling with children i would NOT recommend this hotel but with a group of friends it is perfect....

I have no complaints but no great praise. The rooms were clean and larger than they looked on the photos provided by the booking site (when does this ever happen?). The location is good in terms of walking everywhere from the hotel. The front desk staff were friendly. Overall the hotel itself is a little bland, but the bar and...

Pros : great water pressure in the shower and convenient parking. Now for the bad stuff... When checking in, the woman helping us rushed us through and got annoyed when we asked questions. The halls are dimly lit and faintly smell like pee. The room itself was laid out nicely, but the radiator would not turn off all night and...

I stayed here with 14 friends last weekend for my hen night. We had a great stay, the rooms were warm, clean and comfortable. The location is spot on a 2 mins from all the best pubs and clubs.
