I have stayed here twice, on both occasions with a large group of workmates on a staff night out. The hotel could not be more central, the staff are very nice and we have had a good meal on both occasions that we have been here. The rooms are clean and comfortable, but very hot at night and there is no air-conditioning and as it is so central it is too noisy to leave the windows open.
This is a great spot for a fun night away with friends, however I would imagine that it is a bit noisy for people who want an early night or for families, especially at the weekend.

We stayed here for two nights...and wished for more. The hotel, while older, is not run-down or shabby by any means. We were in Ireland for a week and the wireless internet here was by far the fastest. The room was very comfortable and well-appointed.The staff was cheerful and helpful. We parked the car in a nearby garage and spent our days walking. Cute little coffee shop directly across from the hotel. And there were many pubs and restaurants to choose from. We ate at a restaurant called PARIS TEXAS, believe it or not. It was great.

Room Tip: Chose a room on the opposite side of the main street.

Well appointed hotel in the middle of Kilkenny. Nice recetion area and friendly staff. The room was clean and generally well equipped. The TV however was a great big lump of plastic from the last century and had a only about 5 or 6 channels. The bed was comfortable and I would have got a good sleep were it not for a car alarm going off regularly in the multi-storey on the opposite side of Ormonde Street (a narrow street) . There was also the thump thump of music from nearby into the early hours. As it was a warm night, I had to have the window open so plenty of noise coming in. Breakfast was ok and attended on by friendly staff. Parking is free in the multi-storey until noon if you're a guest in the hotel.

Room Tip: Probably avoid a room overlooking Ormonde Street if it's a warm night and you want a good kip.

The location of the hotel is perfect , right in the middle of Kilkenny City. It has an old world friendly atmosphere and you can sit outside on a sunny day and watch the world go by. The bedrooms were fine except the bedspread was a little threadbare and had seen better days. The food was average nothing special. The waiting staff were friendly and helpful. We availed of a special offer and it was great value for money. Overall though the carpets were a little shabby and it looks like it is due an overhaul.

The hotel staff on arrival were lovely and so helpful. However our room was over (though 3rd floor up) the late night bar. This opens on Friday, Saturdays and Sunday, and unfortunately for us, we were there on Sunday! loud music and people screaming at each other over the music until the middle of the night. Like I said, staff are lovely, room was lovely, this was my only complaint, but not one I can get past.

Room Tip: ask for a room to the front of the hotel. late night bar is at the side.

Food was good and staff friendly. However, would not recommend based on lack of double glazing, airconditioning, poor shower facilities and outdated decor. The noise from the street at the left bank kept us awake till 3am.
