    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.

    Fabulous

    Kilkenny River Court was a pleasure to stay in, staff are so friendly & helpful. The choices for breakfast were excellent, they cater for everyone-lowfat options also. The service in the spa was wonderful, the 2 girls were very good!!

    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.

    Fabulous

    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

    Very good

    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.

    Good

    The hotels location for shopping and sightseeing was excellent. Staff were friendly and the view from our room across the river towards the castle was fantastic.

    It is slightly dated in decor.We had stayed the previous 2 nights at the Lyrath so our expectations were high!

    Superb

    Room was very nice, everything was in good order. Lovely bar to have a drink in in the evening. Excellent breakfast the next day, great choice although it only ran up until 10 o clock which was a little early for us. Would loved to have used the pool...

    No complaints - everything was as we expected
