The hotel is short walk from Kilkenny center. The room was spacious and clean. The hotel staff was very helpful and breakfast served full Irish breakfast. The hotel has a bar and restaurant downstairs, but we heard no noise to our room. I would recommend this hotel to a friend.

This hotel needs lessons in service and courtesy. Although a reasonable location the parking facilities are poor for residents during the day. The hotel is shabby at best with dirty bathrooms and filler on the walls and in general a poor state of decoration. From the moment we arrived it felt as though every request to staff was a burden....

I won a one night stay in this hotel bed and breakfast and a two course evening meal. The twin bedroom was comfortable and spacious enough and bedroom facilities were good. The ensuite bathroom contained both bath and shower, which was great. There was no ventilation or fan in the bathroom and that would be my one complaint about the...

The hotel, staff, rooms, bars restaurants and evening meals were first class, the only criticism was the breakfast which was actually cold even though it was on a heated trolly, the eggs were overcooked and thrown on top of one another. There was total confusion around the toast making facility and also the coffee dispenser. We would certainly go there...

We were greeted at reception by a lovely man, who was very welcoming. Our room was lovely, we were given a huge family room which had a double bed and three single beds.
