Reviewed 4 February 2012

Speedy checkin by the friendly staff followed by tea and warm scones in the bar. Room was clean, however was a but noisy as we were opposite the lift entrance. Lovely breakfast the next day however sausages were a bit cheap, get better ones :) Overall an enjoyable stay in the ormonde, which is in a great location!

I recently had the joy of reuniting with my dearest friends from college and we chose to meet in the wonderful city of Kilkenny! We opted to stay in the Kilkenny Ormonde Hotel (6 of us)! Where to begin?!!- The room was fabulous, spotlessly clean, spacious and the most comfy hotel bed I have slept in!! We were warmly greeted and from the outset the staff couldn't do enough for us!! Brendan in the bar made sure we were kept in beverages and removed all unwanted attention without prompting!! He served with a smile and a touch of professionalism that, unfortunately, is often rare (especially at 3am!!!!) Mags in the restaurant at breakfast (both mornings) went above and beyond the call of duty in ensure our every need was met!! I have never been to Kilkenny before and after this visit I am already planning a return visit with some new recruits!! The hotel is uber central to eveything so I parked my car on Friday evening and did not have to sit into it (reluctantly) until Sunday afternoon (Free parking!!) Even when I had lost my ticket the wonderful reception staff gave me a note to give to Alan to get out!!. Check out Kilkenny Castle and the artists courtyard (less than 3 minutes walk from hotel) The hotel also boasts a rather impressive looking (I didnt want to over exert myself!!) gym, spa and beauty thereapy rooms though book the latter in advance as I discovered they were booked out-another testimony to the quality of services). I could go on but I think you should get the message!! Loved it!!

Great hotel in a great location. Very friendly and helpful staff. Food is excellent. Will definitely come again. The only complaint I have is about the extorsionate price of drink. 4.60 for a pint of Guinness is ridiculous especially when you can walk down the hill to a pub and get it for 3.80. But this seems to be standard for hotels in Ireland. But over all great hotel.
