      The property was great! Our only problem was that we were given a handicapped room & with my husband being 6’3, the sink was too low as was the shower head etc... Otherwise, all was clean & lovely.

    • 6.0.Good

      Well past it best. Disappointing stay.

      One of the more expensive stays I have had and I left the place disappointed. We have to get past a time where a hotel can be considered a 4 star hotel when they don't offer Aircon, robes, slippers, coffee machines, proper sound insulation in the room. The hotel is showing its age and while it looks like some upgrading to the rooms has been done the doors to the hallway still don't fit properly so there is a constant noise from the halls and the rooms next door. Stains on the carpets. Pigeon dropping on the outside window ledges. Bathrooms need upgrading. Reception and food staff are friendly though like most of the hotels at the moment staffed with young inexperienced staff but that's ok. Pool and gym is across the road in the building which also houses the multistorey car park. There is a reduced rate but you still have to pay which after paying €260 for a room for 1 night without food it's a bit rich. But the noise from drunk guests which kicked off before 7 pm and continued on and off till after 3 am and despite reporting it twice nothing was done about it highlights how bad the soundproofing is. Given covid they have removed the cups and glasses from the room and left a little paper box with some teabags and instant coffee with 2 paper cups but nothing to stir your beverage with. I left tired, unimpressed and feeling I had been a little ripped off. There are better hotels in the country charging a lot less and my advice is pick one of those.

    • 2.0.Poor

      Hotel dated and rooms hot and stuffy

      Queues at reception. Technical issues. One of the rooms not ready. Hotel dated. Noisy hen/stag/wedding parties late into the night. At check-out they couldn’t find funds from Hotels.com. Had to show them my credit card bill to prove funds were taken by hotels.com - this was not their fault. Damaged my hire car exiting their car park, exit very narrow with side walls. Rooms very stuffy, even though the weather was moild. I imagine it’s a sauna during hot weather. Had to call reception 2:30am for water that they’d forgotten to leave in the room. There’s a fan in the room but it doesn’t help.

    • 4.0.Fair

      Not returning.

      I will not be returning to that hotel. The wait to check in was long. The bed was rock hard. No hairdryer in the room. The staff in the dining room were unpleasant and we were charged for someone else’s dinner even though we paid for our own. On checking out we were charged for parking and on leaving the car park we discovered that our ticket had not been stamped by the hotel and had to pay a lot more to get our car. Overall a bad experience.

      Family night away

      Overnight in Kilkenny with family. Great town. Hotel was nice - room was warm as no AC during heatwave but otherwise very comfortable. Food for lunch was good and pool and gym were good. All staff very helpful throughout

      OK

      Kilkenny is a real jam. We absolutely loved it. The hotel was nice. Nothing fancy but fine for a short stay. We got our room late and no compensation was offered. The breakfast was basic but decent. Dinner menu was pretty basic as well. I had a spa treatment (seaweed wrap) which was nice but not worth the 100eur. The spa is pretty basic but staff is very friendly and kind.
