Positive Reviews

Perfect Location.

This hotel is ideally located to reach anything in the city centre including bars, restaurants, and shopping. Other nearby attractions include Kilkenny Castle and Smithwicks. Although centrally located, the hotel remains quiet and peaceful.

Helpful Staff.

You'll receive great Irish hospitality by the staff of this hotel. The friendly staff goes out of their way to please guests. If it's a restaurant recommendation you want, or directions to an attraction, this professional staff is eager to help.

Refurbished Rooms.

Rooms at this hotel are of a reasonable size, tastefully decorated, and immaculately clean. Many rooms have received upgrades.

Negative Reviews

Can Get a Bit Noisy.

If your room faces the inn's court, you may find yourself in search of a pair of earplugs. This hotel hosts a lot of wedding receptions, and so noise from the parties can last well into the night. Try requesting a room away from this area.

Facility Closures.

Guests say leisure facilities such as the pool have been closed, and with no prior communication from the hotel prior to arrival. These closures are presumably due to ongoing renovations, but guests say it would be nice if this was communicated.

Parking Issues.

Guests say this hotel can be a bit tricky to find, as it needs better signage for the entrance. Not only that, but parking can be an issue as there is no entrance to hotel from the rear, and the car park offers just a limited number of spaces.
