“Excellent hotel and great value.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 April 2014

We had a lovely easter midweek break for 3 nights with our 3 boys. On arrival the welcome that we got was first class. The room that we had was spacious and clean. Had dinner in the bar on first night while our boys went to the kids club. On the first morning I felt that the staff were very stretched and some of the dishes were empty very quick . I think if they had a few more staff that morning things would have run a little smother. Breakfast on the first morning was a bit dry. The other 2 mornings were great and it looked as there were more staff on duty. There are lots of amenities in the hotel for adults and children. The only negative we found was that the dinner menu in the restaurant was very limited. A few more selections would help and the beef that I had was a bit dry. Eating in the bar is much nicer and has a very extensive selection. Overall a wonderful hotel and will stay there again.

I had the pleasure of staying in the Newpark Hotel for a large conference. The room was fresh and clean and the bed was very comfortable. The dinner served for the conference was excellent and the service was prompt. The wifi was easy to access. I had some problems with its speed but I could not tell if it was my device or something else. Overall I would recommend it highly.

I have to say this was a fantastic hotel, the staff were so friendly and we had a lovely 3 night stay there. We were given a complimentary upgrade to a much larger room which was fab! The outdoor jacuzzi/hot pool made it for us, we visited it every day. The leisure centre is lovely there...sauna, indoor jacuzzi, steam room, plunge pool. The breakfast is really good, it is a really decent buffet with cereals, pastries, fruit, smoked salmon, hot fry, salami, cheese...it set us up for the day. Our room was lovely and quiet. The only minor minor thing I would say is that the food in the bar was nice, but not amazing. The same with the dinner options, the food is lovely, you couldn't fault it, but given the standard of the rest of the hotel I would have expected a small bit more from the dinner options, they could have been a little bit more inventive? That said, this was a fantastic hotel, really couldn't fault it and I will definitely go back again for a lovely relaxing weekend away. Well done to all the staff there for a lovely stay!

Room Tip: We stayed in a room over looking the green grassy area at the front of the hotel, the room was reall...

Have just come back from our first visit over the easter holidays. Will first mention a couple of negatives : the swimming pool is not totally ideal as the kids section is very small and the adult pool is too deep for younger kids to splash around in ! Overall i felt the whole leisure area could have done with a good clean - all the glass around the inside and outside is quite stained with dirt and not once in 3 days did i see anyone cleaning the floors etc (in pool twice daily).This really is my main complaint. Also it would have been lovely to have had dressing gowns in our rooms so you can go to the pool in them. Our room (one of the superior) was nice but maybe a little on the small side . The hotel has a kids club twice daily -but be careful to tell the girls that your child should not be let out without your permission -our 7 year old was downstairs when we came back from the bar area. Although we didn't feel he was in any danger as he was sitting with other kids i was a little amazed that he was casually let out. i feel really mean saying any negatives about this hotel as there are so many more positives. The bathroom in our room was a good size, modern and well stocked. The infinity pool outside the main leisure area is really lovely and relaxing if you get the chance.The staff are all lovely and welcoming - always greeted politiely and with a smile. The kids enjoyed the kids club and the girls there were really lovely. Outside at this time of year has the little farm and pedal go carts which they really enjoyed. Last but not least the food is really delicious - we intended going out into kilkenny at least on of the nights but the food was so yummy that we ate all 3 nights here. A few small improvements would go a long way but all in all a lovely hotel and we will definitely be back !

My mother and I recently stayed for two nights at the Newpark Hotel.Hotel was only a 10-15 min walk max to the city which we did on both days rather than bring the car such a short distance and no having to find parking! We ate in the restaurant on the first night and in the bar on the second and on both nights the food was very good. Hotel was very busy as it was Easter weekend but the facilities were great and there was something to suit everyone of all ages. Fantastic facilities and activities for children but we also thoroughly enjoyed taking a stroll around the the wildlife farm to see all the animals and enjoyed the falconry display. There is also a lovely marsh walk to the back of the hotel. Overall there was a nice ambience in the hotel and plenty of comfortable seating areas in which to relax. Staff were friendly and helpful which contributed to a pleasant stay overall.

I have not stayed here but I have had reason to spend two afternoons here in recent weeks. The staff are delightful and the place is excellent. Very clean and spacious. The carvery servings are huge, tasty and reasonable . Everyone is very smiley and helpful and the place just has a lovely atmosphere.

I had a lovely romantic long weekend with my wife to be. The Spa was great, dinner was really nice, the room was good and the afternoon tea was excellent. The highlight was the outside hot tub, loved that !!!
