    Unbeatable location, comfy beds, delicious variety of breakfast food. We appreciated glorious views. The staff was really HELPFUL. It was in a central setting. In the evening we visited Lanigan's Bar & Restaurant it was nearby.

    Comfortable place for exploring Kilkenny. The bed was good, the staff was really accommodating. It was right by Duck pond. We enjoyed a writing desk, ironing facilities and an electronic key card in the room.

    Location

    The equipment of the rooms is pretty run-down for a 4-star hotel - especially in the bathroom!

    The rooms are well equipped, the furniture is not old. The dining room where breakfast is served was particularly nice, the staff is particularly attentive. The location of the hotel is perfect if you want to have dinner in the evening, because the hotel is very central.

    Room was nice and big. Great bed. Nice bathroom. Nespresso machine in the room plus kettle. The location was absolutely fantastic. Free parking. Very friendly staff. Delicious and extensive breakfast. I really would liked to stay longer!

    Nothing! Except that I only stayed for a short time.

    Great bar, especially in the outdoor area, beautifully located on the water and good food

    Loud noise from outside like a fan can be heard in the room. Altogether thin walls you can hear everything

    The location in the middle of the city with view to the castle directly on the river.

    Somewhat old-fashioned equipment (but in good condition). Patio can be noisy.

    Perfect

    We were very impressed with the service and friendliness of the staff. They couldn't have been more helpful. The hotel is very well located and beautifully situated on the river. There is a nice atmosphere in the hotel and it is busy without being overcrowded.

    The only drawback we found was the access from the main road. It seems such a pity that such a lovely hotel does not have a better approach and cannot be seen too easily, certainly coming from the Dublin or Castlecomer direction.

    The view, the breakfast, the staff, the location, the room, it was perfect. We requested a castle view if available and we were granted a lovely room overlooking Butler castle. The breakfast is fantastic for a hotel, resort, or B&B great variety served in a lovely setting, enjoying a beverage on the patio in the afternoon was fantastic!

    Not really a complaint but we were unable to use the pool nad hot tub due to the limited hours, I wish it had been open all day into the evening.

    I was so pleased with this hotel, from its excellent location, in the heart of the city and a prime location on the river opposite the castle. Close to everything cultural or otherwise, to the value for such quality hotel. A 4 star with lovely rooms, pool & spa, free in room movies, even the car parking was reasonably priced at 5 euro for 2 days. Unfortunately we didn't eat in the dining room, but I gather its won awards. The breakfast was very nice. I cannot recommend this hotel highly enough. You can't go wrong in this lovely hotel.

    Cleanliness of room. courtesy and friendliness of reception and dining room staff

    Poor sound proofing of room which meant our sleep was disturbed by very loud guests in next room. Not very happy with noisy and inconsiderate guests in dining room at breakfast who lowered the tone of this excellent hotel

    The location of the hotel is perfect - right in the Kikenny city center, opposite to the castle. It has a lovely terrace over the river. You get car parking for the entire day for only 3 € in the hotel. Staff is very friendly. Rooms are very spacious. Staff is friendly and helpful.

    The room was very clean apart a little spider web on the corner of the room a small detailed that you should never find in place like this. Since the hotel is so close to the city you might find bit noisy especially on Sat night. We didn't like the mattress and pillows which were very hard.
