Excellent value for money

Was staying in Kilkenny for work so just needed somewhere to sleep. As the hotel was such a bargain price to be honest I was not expecting much. Lovely hotel, bar/lobby area and room, all very clean and had everything I needed. About a 10 min drive from where I needed to go in the City. Found the hotel easily with my gps brought me straight to the door. Had a beautiful breakfast the next morning, food was delicious huge selection and almost half the price of what I have paid in other hotels. Would definitely recommend

Great hotel

Booked last minute and not sure what to expect but so glad we did. My husband two sons and I were supposed to stay one night as we were camping and there was a thunder storm on the way but ended up staying two nights. Can't express just how lovely the staff were, so friendly and helpful and chatty, by far the most pleasant and attentive I've come across, always with a smile and took the time to listen to my youngest son rambling on!!! Hotel itself lovely, clean, comfortable and well kept with a fabulous breakfast spread and gorgeous dinner menu, great wifi and comfy rooms and only 20 min walk into centre of Kilkenny. Would highly recommend and hope to visit again in the not too distant future.

Cheap and cheerful

Perfect for a one night stay to attend a function in another hotel that wanted 3 times the price for a room there. Taxi fare €8. No contest

Good enough for an overnight stay

The hotel is on the outskirts of the city, easy enough to find but is situated alongside a row of out-of-town furniture and DIY type of stores. Parking is free and plentiful. The room itself was clean, comfortable and fine. Staff were friendly and professional. No complaints about the food and the portions were generous. The most disappointing thing about the hotel was that it offered free wi-fi which was the selling point for us but the wi-fi was down for the whole of our stay as was the ethernet connection.
