Great hotel in a great location, not a 4 star as described. Staff are friendly and professional and food is good. Bedrooms are dated and need some more bedding as it was rather nippy while you are kept awake with the noise from the club and bars around. We actually feel like you are in attempting to sleep in the...

the hotel was clean, great restaurant and close to everything. We went to a local bar, "The Fields" and it was exceptional with Irish music and a wild crowd. We stayed until closing. I'd recommend the bar and the area to anyone

Was a disaster from start to finish.... A double room with a camp bed, which broke half way through the night. The toilet wouldn't flush, shower was broken so the temperature wouldn't go down and the tap wouldn't turn off.... Wouldn't stay there again.

What a surprise to discover this city and this lovely old hotel sitting in the heart of Kilkenny. We were in town for the Arts Festival and Kilkenny Hibernian was right smack in the middle of everything happening! Needless to say the hotel was completely full, but you never felt like you were anything but the only person important to...

Everything about this hotel was terrible! Ignorant staff, Terrible service, No hospitality what so ever. The food is a disgrace all reheated meals nothing was fresh. The pudding was as hard as a hockey puck. Myself and my partner were sick after the breakfast. On our second day our keycard to our room was cut off and we were unable...

A great building outside and lovely traditional decor inside. Busy and a good atmosphere. Service very good. A very wet day in Kilkenny so we ducked in here for lunch and we're glad we made that choice. It was a warm and very comfortable retreat from heavy showers. Three meals and two drinks of Guinness came to just over 40...

Truly enjoyed our brief stay here. The front desk staff was delightful on checkin even though I was clearly checking in early ..by a few hours. The location of the hotel is ideal. It's close to all you'll want to do in town and very easy to find if you're driving into town. The room was spacious and quiet ....

Picked this hotel due to its location and was not disappointed, great spot right in the heart of the city. Hotel looked nice and the staff were friendly. The room was a twin room on the 1st floor and was spacious,clean and comfortable. However the window was right above the entrance/exit to a nightclub so it was very noisy come...
