Reviewed 31 July 2014 via mobile

The hotel is very well located. The rooms are large, elegant, and spotless. Breakfast was fine but the staff took a long time to take our order and then seemed to forget we were there. The reception staff was efficient and very helpful.

We enjoyed a couple of nights here on our way back from the lovely Bayview Hotel in Ballycotton and by doing so got a romantic minibreak with the best of both worlds. The rural seaside charm of picturesque East Cork and the sophisticated luxury of Kilkenny City centre Langton House Hotel with it's huge and exotic many roomed splendour.

The hotel comes with its own free car park which is an idea to get directions to before arriving if you are anything like us who had to stop, double park and ask in reception as we missed the turning. Once found though there were plenty of spaces and it was a nice secure spot.

Langton House Hotel is so large and rambling with one ornate dark wooded wrought iron featured room spilling onto the next beautiful antique tiled long hall, that we had trouble actually finding the reception desk, whihc was a bit embarassing as we were wheeling our luggage, but again this is more down to our poor sense of direction than any fault of the hotel and indeed the ramble through the beautiful reception rooms and bars was delightful.

Our room was breathtaking with large fourposter bed, mini fridge, free wi-fi, tea and coffee making facilities, huge elegant black and white tiled bathroom complete with beautiful antique style scales (eeeek!), fabulous shower and simply loads of luxury touches.

Location wise it is perfect to explore Kilkenny and even though Kilkenny has a well earned reputation as a lively city and as it was hot we slept with the windows open we got a great night's sleep.

Breakfast was lovely though the service was a bit on the grumpy side until we got chatting to the staff who then were a lot friendlier. The cappuccinos, though initially were hard to order and greeted with reluctance to provide, were smashing and the whole thing served in such beautiful and ornate surroundings was a real treat.

I am putting it on my wish list to return to the Langton House Hotel soon to revisit the grace and splendour and hopefully get the same lovely room if I can remember that darned number! Lovely romantic place to mini break and super base for a walk around town to look at the shops and visit the castle.

Thanks to all at Langton House Hotel who gave us such a lovely stay especially whoever assigned us the spectacularly romantic room

Room Tip: I don't know whether we actually stayed in the honeymoon suite or not but it was certainly just...

I stayed here recently with friends and was really impressed. Our room was massive and was really comfortable and spotless. The staff were all really nice too.

The hotel's location is excellent, it's within walking distance of everything in Kilkenny.

We stayed midweek and I thought at €89 for two including breakfast was excellent value too.

So, all in all, I'd highly recommend Langtons.

I recently stayed in the Pembrook for two nights. I have to say I was very pleasantly surprised. We had a fabulous room, very well appointed, and certainly a steal for the price. The staff were friendly and very helpful. A real find folks!

We stayed for one night (mid-week, mid July). The staff were friendly and accommodating. The room was very clean and had the usual facilities (for 4 star - except fridge).

The most striking thing about the hotel is the labyrinthine layout and the wonderful decor of each of the multitude of spaces. Many of them have a slightly Moroccan feel (and some is reminiscent of Cafe on Seine in Dublin). Really worth visiting and must be wonderful for a party (say anniversary or wedding party).

Kilkenny was very quiet on that Tuesday night, mid-July and after a quiet meal (see review of Paris Texas restaurant) we stopped for a couple of cocktails and (I played :-)) a game of pool in a bar that seemed like it should have been busy we made our way back to Langtons to find that (at midnight) things were starting to liven up there... Two red jacketed bouncers on the door at the bar end (opposite end on the street front to the Hotel entrance) welcomed us in to what was warming up as a late even "disco/club". Bit by bit the people made their way in and by 01:00 the place was jumping with revelers. Excellent night (which finished up at 02:00).

Seems like the place to stay in Kilkenny (centre at least)....

I had a great experience with langtons hotel. Food is brilliant and so is the service! A barman named Darren was great help to me and my family, he was a very polite young man and made us feel so welcome. I'd definitely recommend langtons as it is a very friendly place with great food!

stayed for one night in a huge family room (most hotels don't cater for families of 5) and the facilities were great - Highly recommend. Quirky feel to hotel with so many bards and rooms - also has a lovely theatre were we watched a world cup match. Good food also in bar.
