    Fabulous

    Excellent staff, nice rooms, clean, good breakfast, the Lilac Spa (which is on the premesis) was wonderful, and the hotel bar was great as well!

    The only problem we had at the hotel was that unless you wanted to walk for 20 min to town you had to take a taxi which would cost about 6-7 euro a ride. When we did get downtown we saw a ton of other hotels that, for our needs (bars), would have suited us better. But if you are looking for a nice country getaway and spa, I would HIGHLY recommend this hotel!!

    Very good

    Staff were freindly , witty!!! rooms were clean mod and warm, lesiure centre was well on par with any ive been in, live music on sat night was great to have available

    the bar area was a bit too retro and cheap looking for me didn like it, thought also the corridoors and resturaunt areas were tired looking and needed some tiping up!!! we had evening meal and though well priced it was only ok, also room sevice breakfast on sunday morning was terrible ( i know we didn book this from the night before but still !! ), we did have breakfast monday in the breakfast room and it was fine

    The food in the bar was really nice, very fast service and the bar staff were really nice.

    The staff in the spa were not very friendly or helpful, the changing rooms were untidy looking, towels were pretty worn, the pool was very cold and the jacuzzi was not working. On check in the girl at reception was not very friendly or welcoming.

    Clean modern surruondings. Error in room service was accepted and food was later provided free of charge due to error responsibility being accepted by hotel.

    Mix up with room service was annoying.

    The staff were nice

    Rooms were poorly cleaned and dated. Lime on tiles in the bathroom and it was old. Carpet in the room was filthy. Bad paint and plaster work. Food wasnt great in the bar. Breakfast was nice but we waited 40 minutes for it after being seated. I specifically asked for a double bed and I got twin beds. There was also a huge hole in the side of my mattress.

    Superb

    The staff were very friendly and helpful. We got lost and arrived very late and hungry. Bar food had finished so we went into the restuarant and had a delicious fish of the day main course. Our waiter was a lovely smiley chap who looked after us so well, especially as it was so late. Thank-you Hotel Kilkenny. P.S Loved having our breakfast in the Conservatory on Sunday morning, very relaxing.

    Room perfect, bed very comfy, digital telly. All perfect. Breakfast first class.

    Foyer very open space, some seating would be nice, but maybe the hotel does not encourage people to sit around.

    Good

    I liked the price of the room, which was reasonable. The reception and cleaning staff were friendly. Also, there was no noise at all during the night.

    A few things- check in is quite late at 4pm so beware of that. Also, I found the service in the Pure bar a bit slow, the older woman working there really took her time taking my order and the place wasnt busy at all. The food for breakfast wasnt great at all, very average full Irish breakfast. And I found my bed quite lumpy so had a sore shoulder the next morning!
