We were one of a number of couples visiting the hotel for a reunion this weekend. On leaving today we all agreed that the entire experience had been wonderful and that the hotel staff had gone out of their way to ensure this.
The reunion was to be informal and we had no difficulty having our Saturday evening meal in the hotel restaurant. However, without requesting it we were given our own room perfectly laid out and set up. Late requests for an extra table and a microphone were facilitated promptly and without fuss and the meal that followed was high quality. As a result of all this our evening was more than memorable. Later we were allowed the use of a private snug area near the bar for a few drinks and a singsong.
The hotel itself is as other reviewers have said. The location is perfect and the accommodation is spacious and comfortable. We did not have time to use the leisure centre but it looked very nice. Breakfast is buffet style and was very good. Though very busy at times they manage it well and there is little or no waiting for a table.
One thing other hotels should take note of is that there is free WiFi throughout and it is not necessary to have to ask for a log-in password.
All in all, a very good hotel made all the more memorable by all the excellent staff who looked after us. We had forgotten how nice Kilkenny is and we will certainly be back before long to stay again in the River Court. Well done guys.
