    The hotel was close in proximity to wedding we were attending.

    For the rates they charge and you have to get your own breakfast. Noise from hen and stag parties at 5 in the morning.

    i enjoyed my stay at the kilford arms , the only fault i hav is that we came away for one night and the money we spent was scandelous i accepted the room was expensive but being a resident we had to pay in to the nightclub which was empty and also i was in shock of the price of the drink...

    very expensive weekend

  • Couple

    The location was great, the rooms were clean, and the hotel had a good buzz about it.

    We were banging on the door and ringing for ages trying to get back in at night time. The man on the door didn't hear us at all, and I saw this happening repeatedly- their system for letting guests in afterhours simply does not work. The hairdryer in the room did not work. The restaurant situation was strange, at first he said we couldnt have wine because we didnt have vouchers?

    the location

    the staff were polite but seemed to be missing a lot of the time, drinks over priced and weekday entertainment was poor probably due to empty bars because of prices

  • Group of friends
    10.0

    The staff in the Hotel where really friendly and helpful, especially Shelia and Louise at reception and Marco (the waitor from Portugal) in the restaurant nothing was too much trouble for any of them and myself and the group of friends who where with me felt very welcome. Food was delicious in the restaurant and very reasonable.The location was perfect for a girly holiday for my 30th 5 minute walk from the train station and the main night club was in this Hotel perfect if you want a lively and enjoyable break. Not suitable if you want a quiet drink, great if you want to party all night though.

    Could do with more security staff in the night club and disco bar, very lively hotel with a lot going on hens, stags, etc and the bar staff and Manager had to deal with most of it, as the bouncers where mostly at the door. Could of got very messy with the usual Saturday night scuffles, between young lads who know no better, we kind of felt on edge which was the only down side of this Hotel.

    beside the train station and within walking distance to shops. it is a lively hotel and plenty of restaurants and bars on the doorstep. The staff were extremly helpful and courtous.

    Was at a stags

    Not good value as there was no breakfast included in the prica and so travelled to another location for it

  • Older travelers
    4.2

    It was close to other places so we didn't have to hang out there.

    Very poor bed, rather tacky decor, too deserted, too expensive restaurant, unfriendly staff, our room miles from the lobby/elevator even though hotel nearly empty, lobby computer out of order.

    The hotel staff were very friendly and helpful.The best thing is the two different pubs in the hotel oh and the night club

  • Single
    7.8

    The hotel is located no more than a 5 minute walk from all the major sights & attractions of Kilkenny.

    I stayed 4 nights Monday through to Thursday, all was perfect, but on Thursday night the bars to its left & right came to life. The noise was obtrusive and contiued till 3am, as my stay was business related the lack of sleep was unwelcome, however if my stay was for a social/leisure capactiy I would have more than likely viewed this as a positive. This should not take away from the hotels great location, just ensure your purpose of stay takes into account the Thursday,Friday, Saturday and Sunday nightlife and if not a set of earplugs is a quick fix.

    Very nice bar and club. Very nice staff.

    Only problem I had is I felt it was overpriced. Had a feeling they bumped up the prices as it was the weekend of the Cat Laughs Festival

  • Group of friends
    4.2

    The receptionist was very friendly

    The room we stayed in was in bad need of renovation - it was dark and it smelled musty. It was overpriced for the condition that it was in - the toilet was broken and the tiles in the shower were very dirty. The only good thing about this 'hotel' is that it has a good location.

    it was convenient for my particular purpose
