“Lovely Hotel”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 January 2014 via mobile

Just home from a 2 night stay here and had a brilliant time. The superior room was lovely, spacious and clean. The bar and restaurant food is delicious and good value.The staff at this hotel are so friendly, especially the waiter Jack in the restaurant, he is super friendly and very attentive. I would really recommend this hotel.

Stayed January 2014, travelled as a couple

Great hotel, great staff. From start to finish we had a fantastic time, it’s hard to believe the package we were on made money for the hotel it was such good value. Dinner for my husband and I on one evening, the choice was fantastic and really good. Our two children were taken care of in the kids club and brought to the restaurant for dinner on both evenings and again they had a great choice of food. The kids club was well organised and lots of activities and very secure (They didn’t want to leave). We also had Kilkenny on ice and bowling included. Between the swimming and all the activities the time flew bye and I wouldn’t hesitate to book again.

Stayed in the hotel over the New Year with my partner and 7 year old daughter. The hotel is in a great location, nice short walk into town. The kids club was fantastic. The staff have a great attitude and are really customer focused. The hotel itself is nice, but a safe in the bedroom would be a plus and a better double bed, it was only a 4ft double bed and not great quality.

Room Tip: An upgrade to a delux room would be good!

I stayed here for a Friends wedding on new years day 2014 and I experienced the best service I have ever had in a hotel from start to finish of my three day stay the staff were very welcoming, very friendly and couldn't do enough for their guests. This resulted in an overall amazing wedding from the arrival reception to the meal (7 courses of AMAZING FOOD) it was all fantastic, I could see the bride and groom had a great relationship with the wedding organiser and staff at the hotel and they made them feel very comfortable everything flowed extremely well which again resulted in being one of the best weddings I have ever been at.

The next day after the Wedding I took a walk into Kilkenny town (10mins max) what can i say the town is just beautiful, with plenty of shops, cafes, pubs and tourists attractions to keep me amused all day I was in my glory.

I cant stop raving about Hotel Kilkenny and Kilkenny itself to anyone that will listen
HOTEL KILKENNY will definitely be back!!!!!

Room Tip: Ask about twin room if going with a group of people as I got a twin with another girl and there was...

Had a lovely stay. Got upgrade on room as we were without our children and it really was great! Lovely and clean, not to hot in room, fairly well priced! Only draw back to many kids around. Not enough bar stools at bar and they weren't comfy! Staff very helpful and a lovely crew. Spa on other hand wasn't good value. Would def stay again and just not bother getting the deal with spa included.

We stayed here for a friend's wedding on New Year's Day 2014 & experienced the best service from start to finish. Despite it being a very busy time of year, the customer service was amazing. Every single member of staff was so friendly & welcoming and couldn't do enough to help, resulting in a happy wedding party with about 120 very happy guests!

There was a crazy amount of really tasty food at the wedding breakfast (about 7 courses, all lovely), impeccable service throughout and the facilities were great. The reception room was a great size with a big dance floor & lots of space for tables. The bride & groom chose to have their top table in the middle of the room which made it a really relaxed atmosphere. We didn't have to leave while dance floor was set up.

We had our hair done in the hotel's hairdressers & make up done in our rooms. The rooms were clean & comfy. Wish we'd had time to go for a swim, pool looked lovely!

From a guest's perspective, I couldn't rate this hotel highly enough.
