“Pleasant Stay”
Reviewed 1 August 2009

We stayed here overnight in July 09. We didn't realise that it was so out of town but then looking at the places closer to town we were pleased with our choice. The staff were pleasant and helpful (except for one). The rooms were lovely, clean & modern. The bed was comfortable. We had dinner in the restaurant and the food was most enjoyable. Breakfast was a buffet and it was fresh.

We stayed in this hotel for a weekend, as we were a group of girls on a hen night out in Kilkenny. Upon arrival, the lobby was bright and spacious and the receptionist was extremely courteous, friendly and welcoming - this seemed a great start. We were in good form and all checked into our rooms. They were spotlessly clean and spacious with large sized beds. Twin and Double!! The bathrooms were spotless also. As we had organised a meal in town, the hotel reception were able to book taxis to and from town for us, without any difficulty. They were most obliging which was extremely helpful. And as for breakfast the next morning - well it was fab. It was a buffet with both cold and hot selection of foods and was most enjoyable - and eat as much as you like. Overall we enjoyed our stay and would definately return for a short stay.

Dear Guest,

I am responding to your recent review of our hotel.

I am delighted to read that your stay was enjoyable. I will pass on your comments to the Accommodation team about the cleanliness of the bedrooms and indeed the kitchen staff about the enjoyable breakfast you had.

It is also great to read that the staff were all so helpful and that you had no problems getting in and out of town.

We would certainly be delighted to welcome you back to Days Hotel Kilkenny in the near future and thank you again for taking the time to post a review of your stay.

Kind Regards,

Jane Dunleavy
General Manager

I booked this hotel knowing it was on the outer edge of town, and that turned out to be a great thing. Parking was the biggest challenge throughout Ireland for us, and this hotel has a huge lot, so that was fantastic. The hotel itself was very nice, large rooms which surpised us, comfortable beds. Breakfast was included in our rate, not a lot of foods we liked, but for most people it would be more than enough with fresh fruit and a variety of other things.
If you are driving and want to go into Kilkenny I would recommend getting a taxi if possible because we drove into town hoping to go to the castle and walk around, but after almost an hour of getting turned around every which way, and then finding the castle parking lot ripped up for construction and no street parking spaces left, we decided to just forget the whole thing out of frustration. So just be warned of the lack of parking within a reasonable distance of the castle!

Clean modern hotel with comfortable rooms and good for a business trip. Location is in industrial park on the outskirts of Kilkenny which is handy if travelling with a car but awkward if you're not. Restaurant functional & not very atmospheric but food ok. I find Kilkenny hotels overpriced in general and this one represents good value.

This hotel is located in a strip mall on the outskirts of Kilkenny (in other words, not very near city centre or the city's attractions). Room keys did not work for myself and a colleague. My room key never got fixed and they had to move me to a different room. The rooms themselves were not bad. Even if you can tolerate the location and the rooms...do not eat in the restaurant...it is terrible...servintg what seemed like a variety of microwaveable meals.

Dear Guest,

I am responding to your recent review of our hotel. I was disappointed to hear your feedback and that you didn't enjoy your stay.

I apologise for the inconvenience caused by the key card not working. This is something that we are in the process of sorting out.

In relation to the food in the restaurant - Our head chef prides herself in cooking everything to order. Our new menu sees everything homemade and cooked and baked by our chef's in the kitchen. I can assure you that nothing is microwaved and I'm disappointed that you did not enjoy your food. However, I will pass this comment onto our head chef and we will certainly take it on board.

Thank you for your feedback - it is only with such feedback that we can continue to improve our services and customer care.

Kind Regards,
Jane Dunleavy
General Manager

I was so impressed with all aspects of this hotel. We had stayed in the Days hotel in Galway before and we therefore not expecting much but this was a completly different experience.
The staff were fantastic, helpful, organised and informative. We forgot toothpaste, they provided some, we needed to get brekfast earlier due to conference commitments - they were extremely accomodating. we needed to eat late and were given the name of a local eatery. We also needed late checkout and this again was accomodated with ease and pleasure.
Breakfast was delicious, great variety, fresh and well presented.
the lobby itslef was restful and modern.
The rooms were cosy, modern and very clean.
the afterservice provided by the hotel was outstanding - the really valued our opinion.
An excellent hotel with great ambience, food and staff. We hope to return soon.
