“Excellent hotel”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 September 2013

Just back from a 2 day stay at the Kilkenny Ormonde Hotel. Lovely bar and top notch restaurant. The staff were great and the town itself was the perfect getaway. I will be recommending the hotel to family and friends and we'll be back next year

We stayed at the Ormonde for 5 nights in July, and can only reiterate previous comments. Staff were very friendly and helpful. Our room was very clean and comfortable. The hotel is situated just a short walk from Kilkenny town centre, but we experienced no late night noise. We were fortunate enough to be in Ireland during the wonderful heatwave - unfortunately the usual Irish form of air conditioning (opening a window) was not enough, but they did provide fans. The hotel has a special rate with the multi-storey car park opposite for which there was a nominal charge, you just have to remember to get your ticket stamped at reception before taking your car out of the car park. The leisure facilities were very good; we used the pool but not the gym. Bar food was excellent as was the breakfast (particularly the poached eggs). Summing up, an excellent value hotel in this beautiful vibrant city.

Staff were friendly and helpful but the superior room we reserved was average at best and the meal we had at the hotel restaurant was very disappointing and we really regretted not eating out. The location was great but that alone wouldnt encourage us to stay again

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.
