Kilkenny Ormonde Hotel

Reviewed 5 September 2013

We have stayed here a few years ago and decided to trwat oursleves to a weekennd in the Kilkenny Ormonde. We booked the romantic weekend for two deal. That included 2 nights B&B and one 4 course dinner for €300 .

We were on the thierd floor over looking the car park and the city, the rooms are modern, spacious and ver clean. It was comfortable. It was a bit noisy outside but it the weekend in Kilkenny so thats to be expected.
Thr location is bang in the centre of things and and easy walk to all of the. shops , resteraunts and bars locally. It across the road from the castle which is well worth a visit if you havent been before.

Breakfast is full buffet , good choice or tradition fry or continental, tea/cofee and toast served. It get very busy after 9.30 but staff are well able to cope and fresh food keeps being served. Its almost worth staying there just for the scrambled egg alone.

Service is excellent and a snafu I made with the booking was sorted out with no fuss and we were made feel very welcome. Nothing is a problem just what you expect froma four star accomadation.
The leisure club/Spa is acessible froma tunnel that goes from the Hotel under the road to the car park. Its very well appoointed.

We had dinner on the night we arrived as it was alte and we both enjoyed our meals. The portions were quite large and we were a little stuffed afterwards.

Have to make a retuern visit , but we wont get way with not bringing the kids next time.

We stay in the Ormonde Hotel every summer. It's centrally located with plenty of bars, restaurants and shops nearby. It is only a short stroll from Kilkenny Castle and a lovely park! The staff are most helpful and very friendly. The rooms are very comfortable and kept very clean. We had breakfast every morning which has something for everyone and all very tasty. Our evening meal was beautiful also, with the staff attending to your every wish. Looking forward to staying there again soon!

very accomodating and welcoming, staff can't do enough to help and nothing is too much trouble. Comfortable big beds, spotless leisure centre - the rule about wearing swimming caps contributes to how clean this place is. Food ok, lovely guiness. Good location.

Had a 2 night stay in a room that was very comfortable & luckily very quiet. We found the whole hotel extremely friendly & welcoming. Breakfast staff were very helpful with swift service. Great stopover if your visiting Kilkenny. Downside, make sure you take your toiletries not much on offer in the bathroom...

We have stayed in this hotel since 2000. I have never had to complain about anything at all,staff are excellent from the moment you stay until you leave. Rooms are spotless and cleaning staff are very thorough. I would not dream of staying anywhere else but the Kilkenny Ormonde. It is very central to all shops and amenities in the town. Food is great too.
