“Weekend Break”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 September 2014

This Hotel was situated with a 5 minute walk to the city centre and 15 minute walk to the shopping centre "McDonagh Junction" with all the high street shops. I had not been made aware of this shopping centre as it was not advertised anywhere regarding " Shopping in Kilkenny". Walking from the hotel into the town you will pass Smithwicks brewery and defintely worth a visit.
The room was very basic but clean sheets, bathroom and good pillows. The only disadvantage was that on Saturday night the room was located on the main street which seems to be a busy road for traffic and people walking home from nightclubs etc. not a great nights sleep here for those looking for one.
staff were nice and left extra towels outside the door without asking. Breaksfast was freshely cooked so this was a nice bonus.

Stayed here for a week whist working in Kilkenny. The rooms were clean and comfortable with plenty of hot water for a nice bath. The staff are very friendly and welcoming.
Very good location as it is about a 5 minute walk to the city centre and about 10 mins to the castle. With lots of restaurants within easy walking distance.
A wide mix of people staying at the hotel, business people, tourists, and Irish people away for a few nights.

Room Tip: A lot of people are complaining about the wifi. There is no wifi in the room but they do provide int...

The foyer of the hotel looks modern and very appealing, there was two females on reception of which one was on her mobile phone, not very professional for a first impression. But they were both very helpful at that. The room it's self was to a good standard. Very clean, with everything you'd expect. Major let down is that rooms do not have wifi access, only available in the foyer.

Very nice hotel in a beautiful city in Ireland. Good service, close to all, fair rates. Go, you will not be disappointed, we weren't. The rooms were clean, modern, refreshed, and the front desk was staffed by pleasant, personal attendants.

We stayed for three nights, in two rooms. Expectations were low given the rates, however we were pleasantly surprised. Rooms were very clean and spacious and the beds were comfortable. We had rooms on the 2nd floor at the back of the hotel, which was lovely and quiet. All facilities in the room were adequate, although the bathroom was a little dark, particularly the shower area. We found the staff pleasant and welcoming. The location was perfect, a very short walk to the main streets and 5 minutes to the Castle. Car parking was free which was a nice surprise as we have had to pay up to 10 euros per day in other places. Only small negative was the breakfast, which seemed a bit hit and miss, and no wifi in rooms. All in all, very pleasant, great hotel, would recommend and stay here again.

Room Tip: Rooms on the second level and at the back of the hotel are quiet, and have a partial view.

Stayed here for 2 nights in July. Well located, about a 10 minute walk from Kilkenny castle and 5 minute walk from high street. Hotel average enough with limited amount of parking. Staff were friendly and was all in all a good stay.

Lovely, clean, warm hotel. Just a short distance from the town centre. Rooms are clean but basic. We had front room and it could get a little noisy outside during the night as people make their way home. Hotel staff were so nice and helpful. Would return to hotel. Cant fault it at all
