Generally good value. The final morning we stayed on the Sunday morning we were got up for breakfast and was one of the fist in the dinning area. We felt the breakfast we received was nothing like the saturday morning and believe we were given the saturday breakfast left overs on the sunday morning breakfast.

Hotel is in a great location, very near the train station and all the main attractions. The room was very nice and spacious with tea & coffee supplied. The staff were all very friendly and helpful. The breakfast is self service, fruit & yogurt lovely but hot breakfast was certainly not hot and the only disappointment with out visit

Lovely friendly helpful staff. Great dinner and breakfast selection. Alcohol was expensive. Free onsite parking for guests. Located on the main street with access to shops and restaurants within a stone's throw away. Would recommend.

Not a hotel for a quiet night away but definitely a great location to enjoy Kilkenny nightlife with the hotel providing equally enjoyable entertainment. We stayed for one night and didn’t want to leave the next day when it was all kicking off again. Rooms are about what you’d expect for the price point and not the reason you visit anyway. The staff are lovely and welcoming despite being busy but service is slow (understandably). Overall would recommend for location, price, entertainment and staff but definitely not a place to go if you don’t like noise or want comfort and luxury.
