“Nice "Escape"”
Reviewed 20 October 2013

We spend in Newpark hotel one night, 2 of us and baby. We booked package including breakfast a bottle of wine in room , a very good evening meal and huge afternoon tea with sandwiches and cakes :-) Our girl loved little farm on the back of the hotel, and play zone, we loved swimming pool and jacuzzi outside. Staff in reception and restaurant were very nice and professional. We really liked the size, cleanest of the room . We will be back.

Just back from family wekend in the Newpark hotel in Kilkenny where we were totally spoiled. Loved the fact that there was a lovely big sofa in the room and an armchair where you could relax rather than sit on the bed.Staff in the bar and restaurant were extremely friendly.
Afternoon in the lounge is a must.
Staff at reception were excellent,Marita went went out of her way in trying to book us a restaurant for dinner on the Saturday night
Will definitely recommend the Newpark to anyone who is looking for a professionally run,warm and welcoming hotel

Extended family (5 rooms) stayed last weekend to celebrate a birthday. Staff were very friendly and helpful. Food in bar and formal restaurant was lovely. Rooms were nice decorated and very clean. We enjoyed the mini farm on the hotel grounds and also adults had fun cider tasting. Leisure facilities in the hotel accommodated both adults and children. Thoroughly enjoyed the weekend and a big thanks to staff in Newpark!

Returned to the Newpark in Sept with my husband and our 4 year old and received a genuinely warm welcome back from a very friendly receptionist who made a big fuss of my daughter. We were upgraded and had a lovely room, spotless and spacious as always. The one thing that makes us return is always the staff, who are friendly courteous and attentive and always go the extra mile. We had a meal in Campagne restaurant in Kilkenny city as part of the Connoiseur package, I would highly recommend this restaurant, fabulous food, ambience & excellent service. We spent a lot of time in the pool(which was a bit cold), and more time in the new playground beside the wonderful animal farm, fed the lamas and other animals. Plenty for little people to do here. Very handy for Kilkenny city and only one hour drive form Dublin. Would recommend to anyone to stay here as you will feel pampered and genuinely looked after. Would love to go back if finances allow. It's also excellent value for money..

We went in august and even though the hotel was full we were made to feel like the only ones in the hotel every time we go down it just keep getting better they now have a new playground and picnic area which is great to have a tea and watch the kids play then you go over to the farm and my little one got to feed the lama which she thought it was great and that is all without what is going on inside we are hoping to go down to see Santa I just can't tell people how good of a hotel it really is

Myself and a friend stayed at Newpark Hotel last Thurs October 3rd. We availed of a special offer which included bed and breakfast, afternoon tea,evening meal, and use of the spa and leisure facilities.
There was not one thing I could fault the hotel with.Staff were brilliant and there was a lovely atmosphere in the hotel. At times in hotels staff seem stressed and disinterested, not so in Newpark Hotel. Everyone made time to talk and be pleasant.

Afternoon tea and evening meal were excellent .Breakfast was great with a lovely selection of fresh fruits as well as a full cooked breakfast.We had a lovely stay and terrific value.
I look forward staying there again and will be on the look out for special offers.
