Two older(??) couples stayed Sunday and Monday night on a special offer package. Normally we check Tripadvisor reviews in advance but in this case we didn't, so we had no idea what to expect.
We imagined Kilkenny to be a one-horse farmers' town - WRONG - it's a vibrant historical and quite stylish place and much the same can be said of this hotel.
We were so pleased that I voluntarily promised the delightful little blonde girl on the front desk that I would submit a good review to Tripadvisor. Now that I have seen the other reviews there is unfortunately little I can add. All the good things are true.
All the staff we met, from the front desk through the bars and restaurant (even the owner) were the most pleasant and helpful that we have ever encountered in a hotel. The food and service both at breakfast and dinner was excellent and the accommodation is first class.
As for any criticisms - OK - there's no lift which might deter some people, but you could ask for a ground floor room in the garden annex. There's no leisure centre / pool, but weve often not taken advantage of these in hotels where they were available, so we can live without that. We didn't experience any significant problem with noise even though we were in a room right above the street; again, if you are concerned about noise you might be better off in the garden suites.
A small residents lounge where non-drinkers (us) could relax would have been a useful amenity but otherwise we were really satisfied with this great place. Anyone who can't be happy here must be very demanding.
