Myself and 3 male friends stayed here on a weekend in early July 2007. The room I stayed in had wallpaper peeling off the walls, had no tv remote control, no plug for the sink. The sink itself had numerous cracks. The water in the shower was scalding hot. Our beds weren't made and the bins weren't changed during our two night stay.
Also our friends who stayed in another room found a strange guy in one of their beds when we got home. Someone working in the hotel had let him into the wrong room.
We'd have liked to complain but there was no one there at check out time, judging by the other reviews they obviously don't want to take the flak.
I've been to Kilkenny many times over the years and this is by far the worst place i've stayed in, in fact not just Kilkenny but anywhere.
Avoid at all costs.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Troysgate House was built in the mid sixteen century. Originally the home of the Town Sergeant it also housed the city jail. In the mid 1800's part of the premises was licensed for the sale of alcohol and a lodging house, making it one of Kilkenny's oldest inns in the truly traditional sense of the word. In recent times the premises has Ben renovated and modernised providing 23 ensuite bedrooms, while taking great care not to deprive the building of its unique and historic features. ... more less
