Positive Reviews

Very friendly staff adds to the cosy atmosphere

Warm smiles, complimentary welcome drinks and treats, and a genuine desire to make your stay as pleasant as possible add to the hotel's value The staff will ask about your travel plans, consistently offer to call taxi service, and provide advice and detailed information about where to go and things to do They're also very receptive to families.

Comfortable accommodations for business or pleasure

The rooms are simple and have enough space to store your belongings or spread them about, and most importantly, to relax The wheelchair accessibility and wet room accommodations receive high marks Corporate stays have sufficient conference amenities, and find the place a reasonably priced and appealing option for meetings or stopovers.

A quiet retreat perfectly situated in Kilkenny

The hotel is a great way to appreciate the Kilkenny region, and historical Irish sites From ancient ruins, hiking trails, and beautiful scenery, to nearby high street shopping and lively entertainment, you can find a little of everything, while staying at a quiet, low key place.

Negative Reviews

Lack of onsite leisure activities is disappointing

Many travellers, especially families, would appreciate onsite recreational activities The Reptile Village Zoo, Nore Valley Park, and McDonagh Junction Shopping Centre are within a half an hour's drive, but having something immediately available would be a bonus for the accommodations.

Poor housecleaning, upkeep, and furnishings

Linen stains, smoking odours that come into non-smoking rooms, obvious signs of inadequate housecleaning before check-in, and worn out looking furnishings make the stay less than perfect Larger beds are actually two smaller ones put together, often at uneven angles to make the insufficiency more noticeable.

The address is not easy to find when driving in

Aspect Kilkenny can be confusing to find It's best to call while en route for clearer directions.
