“It's like an obstacle course”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 March 2014 via mobile

The good:
On site car park
Close to the train station

The bad:
Paper thin walls
Uncomfortable beds
Unfriendly staff, not rude just unfriendly.
Even though you take the lift up to the second floor you still have to walk back down to the ground floor to get to your room, madness.
First time I ever stayed in a hotel room with no windows.
Dinner was horrible.
Breakfast ok.

Stayed March 2014, travelled as a couple

my husband and I have stayed several times in Kilkenny, a beautiful city, but this time we stayed at the Kilford Arms Hotel recommended by some friends . We certainly were not disappointed It is a great spot, city centre, very friendly professional staff, the rooms are spacious and very clean. We did not eat at the Kilford but if breakfast is anything to go by, food also excellent Thanks to all my husband and I will be back and definitely recommending to our friends and family Great value for money

Big thank you to all the Kilford Staff for such an amazing hen weekend-there was nothing they couldnt do for us! We were there for two nights and between the Karaoke, the cocktail class and the nightclub we never actually left! I would definately reccommend this hotel to any groups or parties-maybe not the best place for a quiet weekend away but thats not what we were looking for so we were happy!!! We were right in the city centre aswell which was fair handy.Thanks again for everything-we'll be back!
