Reviewed 11 October 2011

Stayed for two nights. We loved the bar and the food was good. Staff were really friendly and generally there was a nice athmosphere in the hotel. We didn't expect much in relation to the accommodation because it is only a one star but to be perfectly honest I don't think the rooms are very well cleaned. Tiles in bathroom were dirty and stained. There is huge room for improvement. I was surprised that the room wasn't cleaned during our stay at all. The breakfast was good if you enjoyed fried food. I didn't and was looking forward to at least a semi healthy option. There was none really. No healthy cerial - only choice was cornflakes or rice crispies. I can't eat either. There was no fruit or yogurt. The orange juice was carton juice which I hate. I guess I don't expect them to have a proper juicer in a one star hotel but there is no excuse for not having other cerials/fruit/yogurts. This is a regretfull but honest review all for the sake of a bit of effort.

No complaints. Nice choice in the menu down stairs. Everyone enjoyed the stay and I look forward to booking again should we head to Kilkenny for a another weekend.

The accomodiation was down right filthy, the dust on the carpets (next to the skirting) was unbelieveable, it was white. Carpets were grotty in general, Spare pillow was a disgrace, linen on the beds was crisp and looked fine, top blanket was again in need of a boil.
Our window didn't lock, bathroom was ok, nice tiles, no light though and although we asked for it to be fixed ( a new bulb most likely) we were ignored.
The door handles had bene replaced with handles but although the shape was very different they hadn't bothered to paint the doors. I saw a cleaner with a hoover and just cannot believe it was ever used.
Nice bar downstairs, good menu, huge portions and well priced, bit greasy but it was fine.
With the bedrooms being so dirty you'd wonder if the kitchen was the same and that takes from the meal.
Give the place a thorough clean and paint the doors, then it would be ok.

Really nice rooms. They were spotless. Bar staff were really nice and chatty. Also had tons of answers for every question we had about places to see. The mixed grill is amazing!! If I'm ever back in Kilkenny, this is where I'm going.
