Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

To start with the positives, these are great apartments if you have a group traveling to Kilkenny. Really clean, very well presented and close (enough) to the centre. Our group arranged taxis anytime we wanted to head into town which while it is not ideal, they're still quite cheap.

In terms of the negatives, the owner Sharon was ok to deal with but to echo the reviews below, we were treated like children. As a group of professionals, we found the strict teacher-like tone of many communications with Sharon was unnecessary since we were hardly going to destroy the place. I honestly can't understand why they advertise these apartments to groups like hen and stag parties if they put the frighteners on everyone who arrives. At a cost of €800 to €900 per apartment for 2 nights, you can do without the lecture. If I were to return to kilkenny, I'd stay closer to town where I'm sure you can get pretty good deals (at the same price as the apartment) and enjoy a more pleasant experience.

The cynic in me suspects the positive reviews regarding the service below were probably posted the owner themselves or friends of same. They all seem a bit "samey"...just sayin'

Thank you so much to Sharon for our stay at beechview. We loved the apartments, they were so well kept, perfectly clean and very spacious. Better than the pictures! We rented a penthouse plus 3 other apartments and they were all fab, in particular we wanted a night in for the first night of our hen weekend so this was ideal, plenty of room for all the girls to meet/have drinks/play games etc. Sharon is really organised and offered some really useful information and great services along with the accomodation. We went of the matt the millers cocktail making and dinner combo and everyone really enjoyed this. The shop just beside the apartments is really handy too, we could pick up our breakfast from here (as arranged by Sharon). Thanks for everything, was a great weekend, couldn't have asked for more.

We stayed here in March for my hen party and from start to finish it was great. Sharon in Beechview Apartments organised activities for us from dance classes to dinner. The apartments are really comfortable and great for a weekend away. Would definitely recommend!!

The good

I stayed in the apartments with a group of friends for one night. Apartments are decorated lovely and well maintained. They are also very clean. Overall the accommodation is ideally suited not too far from the city and the apartments can cater for 20/25 people if that is what you require. Also packages can be arranged for dinner and nightclubs.My property rating on the property is very good,the avearge is for my experience with the owner.

The bad

The cleanliness of the apartments I would put down to the fact that Sharon the owner of the apartments and shop ensures that you are there for a minimum amount of time so that the apartments are not disturbed as opposed to a gang of cleaners coming in on the morning of check out at 11am. When we asked for soap dispensers for the bathrooms we were told there was a shop downstairs to buy them.

The ugly

My reason for not recommending this apartment in the future or returning to it (as I would rather pay the extra €30 to stay in Kilkenny Ormonde) is down to the attitude of the owner.
We were a group of girls average age 33 and were spoken to like children when we arrived. Not sure what type of guests stayed in the apartment before but there was very little respect shown to us and it was just assumed that we would wreck the place.We were given a list of don’ts and a cleaning list !. I would consider myself and my friends as respectable people and being of an age as having been brought up to leave a place as we found it.So I did not appreciate the heavy handed approach we were treated to.

The whole experience of the owner and the way we were spoken was just a turn off and to avoid meeting that person again it would be worth paying the bit extra to stay in a hotel in Kilkenny.

Also I do believe that there is some sort of camera not just on the outside door of the penthouse and the complex itself, but actually inside the penthouse itself. I know we all enjoyed watching big brother but I would certainly not be willing to participate it in an eposide.

I stayed in the Beechview apartments for 2 nights in November 2010. There was 6 of us who rented a 3 bed apartment, and a further 8 who rented the penthouse apartment. The apartments are gorgeous, clean and the location is ideal. When booking and looking for directions, Sharon was extremely helpful and polite. On arrival, she was a different story. She was rude and short with us and I felt this was because of our age. All being in our early 20's, perhaps she thought we would be trouble, but if these were her thoughts they were completely unfounded. She told us off like a bunch of school children the minute we entered the door. We had to sit in the living room and be lectured before even looking at the bedrooms! She warned us she ''does not take any s**t'' and if we were not out before 11am what the penalty would be, if we didn't clean up what the penalty would be etc.. I completely understand that every hotel/apartment has house rules and we had no problem listening and obeying but there is a way of saying these things without shouting or cursing. She was not helpful to us in the slightest. She certainly did not organise taxis/dinner, which is why the other reviews are so surprising to me. She also promised a bottle of wine per apartment upon booking which we did not receive. Needless to say, we left the place exactly as we found it and had a fantastic weekend, but the way were spoken to and treated on the first day really put a dampner on it, as well as upsettng and offending us. I would not stay here again, as in the current ecomnomic climate, to speak to customers (who have paid in excess of €1,000 in advance) like that is just unacceptable.

Was recently staying in these apartments for a hen weekend. On arrival we were shocked as apartments are in the middle of no where (on website it says located in Kilkenny city)! Got over that when we got into the apartments as they are gorgeous, very modern and well equipped! Sharon the owner on the other hand is a disgrace. Women dont go for a weekend away to be treated like children. If someone is so concerned about letting out their apartments for hen weekends then dont! Simple as. €50 fine if there is a fork missing or if the dishwasher is not used! Hosting skills could do with having a look at!

We have stayed in many self catering premises in Ireland and have to say Beechview Apartments Kilkenny were 1st class. Excellent value for money, spotlessly clean, very secure and conveniently located. Would definitely recommend to anyone looking self catering in Kilkenny. Thanks for a great stay Gallagher-Lenehan Family Sligo

The apartments are beautiful and xtremely clean. Sharon was so helpful from start to finish and got in touch with all of our activities and organised taxis for us. It is a five minute drive to the city and near to aldi, mc donald, hairdressers etc. so we had all we needed. I couldn't praise it highly enough.

These apartments are FAB ! They have a touch of luxury in a great location ; not only is ther a shop right underneath , they have a great deli and on our first night we pre ordered big tubs of curry and lasagne for everyone to eat ! Ther is also an off licence and hairdressers ! We had the penthouse apt which can sleep up to 8 I think and one other apt downstairs ! They are homely with everything u need - lots of wine and champagne glasses ; flat screen TVs etc ! If I was talking to any of my friends I would be telling them to here ; they are a taxi drive out of town about 2/3 mins so very cheap we ordered mini busses !

We took three apartments last weekend for 20 of us, for my sister's hen party. The accommodation was fantastic, spotless and beautifully maintained, decor was very tasteful and gave a luxury feel to place. Everything was thought of, soaps, shampoos, shower gels, teas, coffees and even milk in the fridge. The apartments were lovely and warm, the whole way through our stay. Sharon was absolutely amazing, she organised a burlesque dance class with April (can't recommend enough ) which everyone thoroughly enjoyed and the bride is even talking about doing it at the wedding!! :-D Sharon also organised a four course meal and reserved seating area in Matt Millers for us, which was lovely and had great service too. All our taxis were also booked for us, and the taxi company even rang to let us know they were on the way and make sure the time was still OK. There is very good shop and deli downstairs, along with a chemist and hair salon. A number of us got our hair done before heading out Saturday night and they were very good, and very friendly, even allowed us to bring down a bottle of bubbly. Sharon was available all weekend by text and mobile to answer my daft questions and she was very quick getting back to me. I honestly couldn't recommend Beechview highly enough for a hen party, and the apartments themselves would be fantastic for a family looking for self catering accommodation for a break away, they are very spacious and have everything you could want. Thanks so much for making it an amazing, unforgettable weekend!
