Aspect Hotel Kilkenny

3.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

I was somewhat surprised at the location of this hotel but have to say it was a diamond in the rough. It was close to everything and the rooms were very clean. Staff was excellent and the food fantastic. The town itself you really need to spend time in and this hotel is in a perfect location to do just that. Can't wait to go there again.

The Aspect Hotel is not the fanciest Hotel, but it is a nice place to stay that is very clean, friendly and has a good breakfast. We stayed 2 nights and enjoyed our stay. The bed was extremely comfortable. It was nice to get a good nights sleep after flying all night then sightseeing all day! Recommend.

After a very long flight from San Francisco then a road trip from Dublin at night was a challenge . The Hotel is not centrally located either . We arrived at 10 pm exhausted but we asked for a 8 am wake up as we had things to do. The room was average but the bathroom was very small . We also prepaid for breakafast a buffet style full breakfast. The breakfast is served from 7-10 am. We did not get our wake up call and slept until 10am missing the breakfast we had paid for. The desk clek was apolgetic but stated that at least we had a good nights rest. That did not go over well as we had early plans that had to be cancelled. They did provide us with something that was to resemble breakfast ( leftovers) but it was old and dry and unedible so we left. They did provide us with a free voucher for the next mornings breakfast. The following morning we did get our wake up and the buffet breafast was really sad . Skip it if you ever stay at the Aspect. They have a small bar in the lobby. The desk clerks do have a great sense of giving directions and twice we were given perfect directiions . We drove towards Cork without any complications . Other then that i see no reason to stay at thsi hotel .

The hotel is 3km outside of town so you cane easily walk. The property could use some TLC, the beds are rock hard BUT the staff friendliness & willingness to go above and beyond make up for that. 5 stars for the people working there!

The rooms were spacious, the breakfast was really tasty and ALL of the staff was beyond nice! We loved that the hotel feels secure, with well lit hallways and fairly comfy beds--and with three beds in one room, it was perfect for a girls trip.

Our stay at the Aspect (4/16-17/2018) could not have been nicer. The staff were wonderful, very courteous and helpful. The food was excellent, the room was clean and comfortable. We highly recommend the Aspect!

Stayed here on a family trip to Kilkenny. Situated a few minutes drive from the centre. Very good budget option. Nice lobby. Dinner was surprisingly excellent for hotel food. Breakfast very good. Rooms were very spacious. Some of us had super king size beds. Staff very friendly. Recommend and would stay again if we return to Kilkenny

Stayed here recently for a night to celebrate my sisters hen in kilkenny.its a few minutes by car frm city center,reception very kindly booked our taxis for us,which only cost us a few euro. could not fault this hotel from the booking of the rooms until we checked out we were treated so well by all the staff.we were a large group of 24 ladies,staying in triple/twin rooms,very clean rooms,comfortable beds,had the best nights sleep.breakfast was very nice,just what we needed after a night out.the staff in this hotel are just so friendly and would have no problem recommending this hotel.we would stay here again.

Stayed here for 2 nights last week. Despite being located attached to a retail park the hotel was pretty much perfect for our stay. Located on the ring road a mile or so from Kilkenny Castle you would need a car or taxi as walking in would be awkward with road crossing etc. The hotel however was very good...big rooms, excellent beds and breakfast better than expected. Very good value and very quiet which suited us. Would recommend.

We arrived here with limited expectations, given the hotel rating and the low price we paid for one night. We were not shocked then to find the hotel really is situated in a retail park and the bar is an open area in reception. We really enjoyed this hotel and would return. The staff were really friendly and the hotel was clean and comfortable adjustable heating in the rooms and good selection at the buffet breakfast. Great nights sleep and about €12 or 5mins from town!
