Myself and my Husband stayed here the 2nd week in September. The Hotel is very clean and our room was fine. It was a bit hot in the room so we asked and got a fan. I have to say that the staff doing the breakfast were fantastic, very helpful even though they were very busy. The Manager of the dinning room could not have been more helpful and she was both very friendly and very efficient. I would highly recommend this Hotel for a Staycation. We were able to book an evening meal on line which was very reasonable and fantastic value and very tasty. We will be back and thanks to all for a very nice stay. Aileen

Of all the hotels I’ve stayed in, this hotels staff could not have done anymore for their guests! Felt like home away from home. From check in to when we left we felt at home. One of the staff in particular, Caroline was amazing, she just remembered the little things! We will definitely be back..!

We really enjoyed our 3 night family staycation in this hotel. The place was spotless. The staff very friendly and helpful. Staff wore masks all the time. Plenty of hand sanitising units about the hotel. Restaurant was well ran with no guests wandering around needlessly. Although, I think maybe a bit more space between tables might be better during busy times. Food was excellent. Pity there was no air conditioning as the room was very warm. Overall, very happy with our stay.

Thankfully we dont have air conditioning in our rooms as it is not recommended as it can assist in the spread of Covid. Looking forward to welcoming you back again in the near future.

My wife stayed here on a weekend trip to Kilkenny. Staff are extremely friendly and very helpful. The hotel itself was clean but lime seems to be an issue in the toilet and on the taps. The room was extremely warm which made a little bit uncomfortable. All of Kilkenny’s boy racers seem to use the road and adjacent car park as a race course. This can be a bit annoying especially if you want to use this hotel to relax over a period of time. We had dinner one night in the hotel which was actually very nice. Breakfast was nice also with a lot to choose from. Staff were excellent at maintaining social distancing between guests. The double bed was comfortable and large. Overall, the best thing about this hotel were the staff who do an excellent job. Not much to complain about to be honest. It is what it is, perfect for a night or two or just using as a base for travelling.

Hi Chris197979 Thanks for your excellent feedback it is very much appreciated. We do apologise for the boyracers in the area but we have not had them here in years and they have just returned. Thankfully the local Gardaí are very proactive in dispersing them so thye will not hang around Kilkenny for long. Yes Kilkenny is on a lime plateau so water hardness is an issue for all in the area. Thanks for all your superb comments, as is your business, very much appreciated. Kind regards, Clement Gleeson General Manager

Very impressed with this hotel, a great price, clean, very comfy, staff really friendly and very well managed with all the new restrictions. Special shout to the staff on breakfast, very busy and quite fast paced place to work but still very friendly and well managed. 2km walk to kilkenny Castle from the door of the hotel, so a great location if you like a nice little walk into the city instead of driving.
