Recent guest reviews

This place was great for our trip. Affordable. Good breakfast (if breakfast doesn't come with the room, you can get a discount voucher from the front desk). Clean rooms. Stand out for me was that the staff went above and beyond to try to check me and my friend in early after a long international flight and drive to Kilkenny. Only downside for me was the beds were a bit small (at 6' I just fit lengthwise). Overall, a decent place.

This was our first stop on our trip in Ireland, we spent 2 nights here. The hotel is very clean and a great value for the price. Though it is not right in the heart of the downtown area, a short 10 minute cab ride gets you there. The staff was all very nice and accommodating, we arrived there art 11am after a very long flight and no sleep and were checked into our room within 20 minutes, even though check in wasn't technically until 3!

Excellent value. Very friendly helpful staff. Good car parking facilities. Room more than adequate for money. Substantial breakfast set us up for the day. Evening meal well presented good value for money compared to eating in town centre. Restaurant lacked atmosphere but was not claiming to be top end. It did what it said on the tin

This hotel is located a bit out of the main streets of the city, so after a long walking day it's very pleasant to stay in the lobby calm and well equipped to have some quiet hours. Easy to get the historical part of the city and the service is very professional.

The room was very clean and spacious (compared to other European hotels). The staff was very friendly, accommodating, and helpful. We had no complaints or issues are all. Keep in mind this is a budget hotel and located about 5-6 minutes outside the downtown area. It's across some main roads that made a walk into town a little too long and difficult. This is not the place if you want an upscale hotel right in town. But if you want a budget friendly hotel that is clean and very friendly, Aspect is a great choice.

We were trying to find somewhere in Kilkenny that could accommodate our party of 2 adults & 2 teenagers. This was the only hotel that yielded an option. We were real glad we booked. The check in was efficient & smooth. Staff helpful. Lots of space. Nice open lobby. Loads of parking available. The room was really nice - best of our short tour of the south east. Really big with comfortable beds. Lots of space in the room. Comfortable & modern. We ate dinner in the evening in the restaurant. It was fine. Breakfast this morning was nice & unhurried. Pity there was no porridge! The only actual 'criticism' might be the actual 'profile' of the hotel! We struggled a little to find it. It is not as easily visible as needs be from the Ring Road. In addition, it was not immediately obvious where to turn in for the hotel. So, we ended up going past, then going all the way round the industrial estate. I suspect it is a new hotel. I wish it very well, as it is really nice indeed. Promote yourselves!

Stayed for two nights recently and can't recommend this hotel enough. Extreme value for money and is comparative to a 4 star hotel in many ways. Hotel is situated approx 20 mins walk from the city centre or taxis are very cheap. The hotel itself is lovely and clean, staff very helpful and courteous. Beds were so comfortable. When I'm back in kilkenny this will be the only place I'll stay.

Stayed here for 2 nights for a pretty low price. Staff were friendly, polite and helpful. Hotel is about a 20 minute walk into Kilkenny town, which we didn't mind considering the price of the hotel. A taxi into the town took 5 minutes, and cost around €8 in the evening. The double room wasn't very big but it had everything you could want or need in it. Plenty of parking space at hotel. Breakfast was lovely, and the buffet hot food was fresh and replenished frequently. Nice selection of pastries and cereals as well. Overall, it was a really pleasant stay and I would stay again.

I recently stayed for two nights in the Aspect while in Kilkenny on a stag weekend. The hotel is very clean and comfortable. The rooms were well-equipped and very spacious. Plenty of choice on offer at breakfast time. Helpful and friendly staff. Reasonably priced.

Situated a bit on its own, I have a feeling this area will be built up very soon. Breakfast was fine for a continental, and dinner was good as well. The rooms were clean and very spacious. The price was also fantastic for a last minute score.
