Assigned wrong room type - told “ Nothing we can do” !! Given another room only after complaining to manager - arrived at room to find it was occupied by another guest (walked in on them!) Finally assigned another room as had originally been booked - took nearly an hour for this all to be sorted.

Staff were very nice on arrival and hotel was in pristine condition. Went to the bar to order a drink and barman told me to ask another bar man who in turn sent me back to original bar man who then got my drink. Felt as if i was an inconvenience for them. Bathroom in our room coulda been a little cleaner was few old hairs in bath tub and bathroom itself could do with some tlc.

Wanderungen in der Umgebung

Pros: Zimmerausstattung
Cons: Die Lage ist ausserhalb der Stadt, aber dafür nahe an der Natur.
Location: Kilkenny National Park lohnt sich sehr für Wanderungen.
Wir hatten eine wunderschöne Suite mit herrlich ausgewählten Möbeln. Sehr gute Ausstattung und geräumig. Die Ohrensessel waren ideal zum Ausspannen nach den langen Wanderungen. Kostenlose Parkplätze und sehr leckeres Frühstücksbuffet. Die Bar serviert leckere Speisen und Getränke. Im Restaurant waren wir nicht, so aber von aussen ebenfalls sehr gut aus.
