difficult to find, only ok with a car. rooms smallish for the price.

Perfect location, all of our needs were met and we had a really great dinner on site.

Loved it! Comfy, clean, felt oddly homey. Easy parking! A huge deal here in Ireland 😁

no "atmosphere" location but convenient location to city. Small bar and restaurant on site. It was perfect for our last days in Ireland,

Great value. Nice hotel for the price. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The breakfast was great. Rooms were clean and comfy. Very convenient location if you want to be outside the town center.

Nice stay. Staff was great. Good bfast. Location not bad.

Very good hotel , free wifi , good location , good breakfast , big room , very friendly staff

Breakfast very good and food service staff exceptional. But location is a bit far from the center city. During our stay, there was no wireless reportedly due to area-wide problem with their carrier. Perhaps some offset in terms of breakfast or otherwise was in order.

Kilkenny is a marvelous village with charm and personality, none of which can be appreciated while at this hotel. Modern, clean, no reason to complain but it is a long way out of town on a lonely road -- don't think about walking -- so you're getting an inexpensive, unexciting place to sleep. Discounted taxi will take you TO town, but FROM town your on your own. Again, the town of Kilkenny is lovely.

The hotel is a long walk from the center of town,the river and the castle. There is a high fence around three sides of the hotel; we climbed the fence to walk to town and climbed again returning. (Not easy for a 63 year old.) The room was clean and spacious enough; however, it was directly over the front entry of the hotel. All night long people came and went, laughing, talking, calling others. The food in the restaurant is okay but better to walk into town.

I thought the hotel was beautiful, great color choices in lobby and the hotel room was really very nice. They had a great breakfast selection also. The only issue that we had was that the WiFi was down and the hotel computer was broken with no ETA of when it was going to come back up. As we are traveling day by day [...] to book hotels every night this was inconvient but overall very nice stay. The staff were also very nice.

We liked this hotel. The location was good for us . The bed was comfortable and the room was very clean.

We visited the town of Kilkenny and had a lovely time! This hotel is on the outskirts of town, but it's a cheap cab ride. Our room was big and clean, and the breakfast (included in our room rate) was great!
