Just back from a trip to kilkenny with a friend. We stayed at the Kilford arms hotel for two nights. From the moment we arrived until we left we found the service at this hotel to be great.The food was good with plenty of choice. Staff were very friendly,helpful and accomodating from front of house to bar and waiting staff. The hotel is in a very central location and has two bars on the premises.It is a very spacious hotel. I would highly recommend it and when i return to Kilkenny I will book this hotel again.

very friendly,courteous straff, very effficient service.. room was comfortable. food was fab and reasonable priced... only bad i have to a say was toilets in dining area where dated and dusty and cobwebs where present..!

Staying in Kilkenny for a wedding, service was first class. Booked on-line, hotel phoned me few days before it to confirm, allowed us to check in a little early to get ready for the wedding. Staff very helpful and accommodating. Rooms clean and cosy. Very happy would stay again

Short walk from centre- helpful staff- quaint castle interior. Would stay there again. Free parking. Very good breakfast, great variety menu in the restaurant. Would recommend this hotel to friends and family

The staff were lovely and very helpful. The location is excellent, close to the centre. The room itself was very nice but with a little more attention to detail it would be much improved. The tiles on the walls of the bathroom were dirty and there was rust on the shower rail. The beds however were very comfortable. I would stay again.

Stayed here just for one night. On check in the staff were very friendly and helpful. Nothing seemed an issue for them. Rooms are nice we had two beds in each room. Very clean throughout. Breafast was €10 and a bargain price for unlimited continental and a cooked brrakfast. We will defiantly be using this hotel on our return visits thtoughout the year ☺

Couple enjoyed our stay at the kilford arms on arrival home my wife realised she had left her bag with a substantial amount of cash in it i phoned reception and they retreaved it from the room 👌👌👌👌

Great place to stay, very central. Hotel was welcoming, friendly and very affordable! Rooms very clean and spacious. Food was great, varied menu something to suit everyone! All aspects, bar, reception, etc.... very friendly and the place was very inviting. Would definitely stay again! 5*****

Stayed for one night in the hotel on a Saturday. Staff were lovely and very friendly. The room was a nice size. Everything was very clean and well maintained. The location was fantastic. Great value overall and enjoyed the stay. I would say that from our room you could hear the live music in the bar, this didn't bother us as we were heading out but it may not be ideal for other guests.

If you are looking for a place to stay with plenty of parking and close to centre of town this hotel has all that as well and helpful staff Parking at back of hotel you need upper John street and then turn down a little side street just before hotel
