“Budget Weekend Break”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 April 2013

I stayed in the Aspect Hotel just outside Kilkenny last weekend. We had a groupon for Saturday night and decided to book in for Friday night also. The Hotel is situated in a shopping park 2 minutes drive from the centre of the city. I wasn't expecting much from this hotel and went with an open mind. When we entered the Hotel we were met by a lovely girl on reception who was very efficent and part of the deal was a bottle of wine on arrival and this was delivered to our room without delay. The room was clean and a good size and well decorated. Tea and coffee facilities in the room and a powerful shower with lots of hot water. We went into the city that afternoon where there is plenty of parking for as little as €5.00 for a full day. When we arrived back to the hotel it was getting dark and the hotel reception area and bar was nicely lit which created a nice atmosphere. We had dinner in the restaurant that night. I have to give full credit to the chef the food was excellent and the portions are generous. The food was so good we ate again there on saturday night and again the food was amazing.

Weekends are crazy in Kilkenny as there a lot of stag and hen parties and there were a number of people at these parties staying in the hotel. The restaurant was busy on Saturday night but the staff handled it very well.

There was no noise at all in the hotel at night despite the fact that it seemed to be full.

I would like to mention the staff in this hotel the are excellent and made our stay.

The Aspect Hotel is a clean modern hotel based on the outskirts of Kilkenny. The staff are friendly and helpful and the meals are good. The rooms are clean comfortable and quiet. There is ample free car parking All in all very good value for money.

nice hotel, very basic, small bar in reception and restaurant although I didn't eat there except for breakfast which was good.
Stayed two nights at the easter bank holiday, rooms good size, dark but modern and clean, bathrooms small but perfectly formed.
Staff were friendly, but one night at midnight-ish while sitting in reception having a drink, a member of staff lit up a cigarette! and if you're not from Ireland smoking indoors is illegal!
The hotel itself is in a retail park and a bit outside the town itself so not for those who don't plan to drive!
apart from that nice hotel would be back! great value! worked out as €25.50 per person per night incl breakfast! never stayed in a hotel so cheap!

Room Tip: i stayed on the first floor near reception which was noisy on a bank holiday!

Thank you for your kind feedback it is very much appreciated. I am sorry for the difficulty with the key cards but this happens when the clock times moves forward, we have to reprogramme each room again each time the clock change. We did reprogramme them on the Sunday. We are as you say only a short hop from Kilkenny by taxi, close enough to enjoy the city yet far enough to enjoy a nights sleep when bed times comes. Thanks again for your valued business, it is very much appreciated.

Stayed there on business and have not come across a nicer and more efficient staff. Had dinner off the newly launched menu food was fantastic. Room was very comfortable,clean and well equipped. Will use this hotel for any further trips to Kilkenny or surrounding areas.
The rate was also excellent.

Stayed at this hotel part of a coach tour.From the moment we arrived, to the moment we left, we couldn't have been made more welcome.The staff here are outstanding.Our twin room was pretty basic in decor, but it had all that you would need, including an ironing board and hair drier.The bathroom was small with an overhead shower and bath.There's body wash, but probably best to take your own supplies. An evening meal and breakfast were included in our room rate.There was a good choice on both nights, and the food was beautifully presented and our party all enjoyed our choices.Again, the buffet breakfast was of a great selection, with plenty of options both hot and cold.But what sets this hotel apart are the great staff, who in my opinion go over and beyond to make your stay so enjoyable.Highly recommended and thanks for a fantastic stay.

Stayed at the hotel for a 3 night break over the Easter holidays. Very enjoyable stay and hotel was everything it should be. Warm, comfortable, clean, friendly, helpful, nice food. Made us and our two year old son welcome and made an excellent base for travelling around the area. Thoroughly enjoyed and reasonably priced. Thank you.
