“Kilkenny Ormond Hotel Nov 2011”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 November 2011

We stayed at the Ormond as a family of four with other friends and their families. We found the hotel staff to be very welcoming and the hotel room was very clean and warm, spacious and modern. The entire hotel was in great order especially the pool and shower area and changing facilities. The breakfast was very good with excellent choices and variations. I would definitely recommend this hotel and the location is brilliant.

We have just returned from a 3 day short break ( during school mid term ). The hotel offers amazing value for a city centre hotel that includes 3 night B&B plus 1 evening meal. From the time we arrived, the staff at the reception, restaurant and fitness centre were fantastic, they could not do enough for us e.g. We forgot to pack 'arm buoys' for the kids but the hotel lent us theirs each day. Other hotels would simply offer to sell you new sets. We were travelling with a small baby and whenever we needed something such as a specific fruit item or requested baby food to be heated, there was no hesitation from any of the restaurant staff. The Free kids club was brilliant for our 6 and 4 year girls. The kids had a great time with the various activities such as bouncy castle, 'make and do' and movie hour. Hotel food was great for the kids also. Thankfully when ordering from the kids menu, we received 'real' food and none of the usual rubbish some places put on their kiddies menus. The weather was very poor on one particular day so we hung around the hotel lobby area and had an extended lunch, read a newspaper and had some nice conversations with a few of the other guests.....all in all a very relaxing stay for mum and dad!!. This was our first time staying at this hotel and we have been on a few short family breaks before, but this hotel beats all others by a mile......will be returning!

The staff at the Ormonde made our stay very relaxing and enjoyable, anything we needed was no trouble and done with a smile. We were there for birthday celebrations for two of our children and the personal touch from staff was really great with lots of happy birthdays and just letting them feel a bit special. The location is perfect for a wander around the city.

Room Tip: We were in a family room which was great. There are 5 of us and there was lots of space.

Just completed another perfect stay at the ever popular Kilkenny ormonde. We have stated here at least 6 times over the last 2 years and have been extremely satisfied every time. The location of the hotel to Kilkenny city means you can forget the car and walk to everything especially the castle which is literally across the road. Keep up the good work Colin and your team!!

We had a great 2 nights here, the room was quiet and lovely. The location was ideal and the staff very pleasant. We had dinner included one evening and I was very impressed with the quality of food. We did notice some other guests complaining there was no huge portion of potatoes (chips) but if you are used to eating in high quality restaurants you cannot fail to be impressed. Breakfast was excellent with a fantastic selection available. The only issue we had was the very poor hairdryer in the room! A great stay, highly recommended!

We spent a few days in the Kilkenny Ormonde for our wedding anniversary and had a great stay. On arrival, we discovered we'd been allocated the bridal suite which was such a lovely surprise and made our stay very special. From arrival to checking out, all staff were pleasant and professional. Breakfast was great, with a nice variety to suit everyone - even the cooked breakfast was impressive as it tasted fresh, light and was frequently refreshed by attentive staff. KO spa is lovely and very reasonably priced. To be able to walk straight out the door into the city is a bonus and there are lots of nice restaurants nearby (e.g. La Rivista and Royal Spice). Thanks to the staff for helping make our stay perfect.

Room Tip: Rooms on the 4th floor have views over the city. Room 410 is worth spending a little extra on for th...

Just back from the Oct Bank Holiday weekend at the Ormond Hotel, Kilkenny. Great location. Great hotel. Lovely large lobby/reception area with lots of seating. Nice spacious bar. Reception staff extremely efficient and friendly. Our room was large with a good size bathroom, Tea/Coffee facilities, Iron/Ironing board. Could do with changing the old style hairdryer, but apart from that no complaints. The breakfast was very good. Although staff could do with perhaps a little bit more help when the restaurant is full, the service was still excellent. Spent some time in the leisure centre which was great. Will definitely be back.

Room Tip: We stayed in room 108 on the first floor. Nice and quiet.
