Breege scored 4 / 5 on 16/07/2024

Can’t fault the hotel or staff & the breakfast was very good. The room was clean & the bed was comfortable. There’s no air con but there was a fan in the room. The only thing I would say is the bathroom needed a little updating but overall we had a great stay.

Noel scored 3 / 5 on 13/07/2024

The receptionist was a lovely lady and explained everything to us on our arrival ie. Where breakfast was being served, the bars and restaurant etc. The hotel itself is basic and in need of updating. We had our evening meal in the main bar/ lounge and it was quite nice. Out of 10 I would rate our meal 6.5. The bedroom was very basic and in need of updating. Would we go back - No. Would we recommend the hotel - No.

Our third time to stay here. I have not submitted a review before but after three hassle free trips, I think that it is time. Rooms are comfy and spacious. Beds are very comfortable. Food is excellent and the service was faultless. The Hotel may be a bit Dated but this is more than compensated for with the quality of service and value for money.

Ann scored 3 / 5 on 30/10/2023

We enjoyed a very inexpensive break in this quirky hotel built around the ruins of an old Church -very unusual. Room seemed to have been recently refurbished and was very pleasant. The city centre location meant we didn't need the car.Food was served all day and reasonably priced.All the staff we met were friendly and helpful. We would stay here again especially at the price we paid.

Rooms very very basic and the room we were in had no window which in this day and age I think is a bit poor especially when every room was the same price.

We find the Kilford Arms hotel very good and the staff very friendly. There is free parking and it is very central to the city of Kilkenny. We stay there a lot and look forward to the breakfast but this time we found the breakfast just o.k. there was a big crowd for the breakfast but this was not the problem the scrambled eggs were awful and they are usually nice but there seemed to be a taste of fish off them for some reason also a lot of the breakfast was cold normally the breakfast is lovely and always hot, but we still enjoyed our stay.

Carl scored 1 / 5 on 14/09/2023

My goodness , this must be the most depressing hotel in Ireland . No welcome from reception , staff all roaming around frowning and looking lost. Horrible atmosphere , no wonder they are offering cheap deals. The management either haven't a clue or don't care about running a hotel properly . In fairness, the food was decent and a good portion but when it's slapped down on the table it leaves a sour taste in the mouth. I don't think anyone would ever come back, we certainly won't be. Also, the room we were given was a mile away from the lift and above the main road. Never got a winks sleep all night due to party goers and traffic. Informed receptionist next day and was smartly told it would be quieter tonight. I asked to change room and she reluctantly agreed. Customer service in this country is non existent . Upon checkout we expected to be asked how was our stay. They never even bothered to ask. Sadly I think this hotel will be in trouble down the line, avoid if you want to enjoy Kilkenny.

Good evening, Just a note of thanks on behalf of my wife and myself for our recent stay in the Kilford Arms. We stayed 2 nights from 05-07/09/2023 in Room 55. We had a wonderful stay and your staff were of the highest order. They were mannerly and courteous at all times which made our stay more enjoyable Can we give a special mention to Sophia who looked after us for our evening meal on Wednesday. She went out of her way to make the evening meal enjoyable and she was so mannerly she is a great credit to herself. Can you pass on our thanks to her. We will certainly be returning and anyone who asks us about your hotel we will highly recommend it Mary and Kieran O Hanlon

We thoroughly enjoyed our trip to Kilkenny and the stay in the Kilford Arms Hotel. Our room was big and very clean, very comfortable beds and an excellent breakfast in the restaurant, which is designed to keep in mind, the history of Kilkenny castle. The staff were extremely helpful and friendly and very efficient and professional in their duties. Our dinner was beautiful and there is a big car park to the rear of the hotel which is free for guests. This hotel is very central to everything in Kilkenny, an ideal location for any trip.

The lovely lady on reception when we checked in Sunday afternoon should be an ambassador for Kilkenny.., and the hotel! Such a positive first impression, and we subsequently really enjoyed our stay. Great breakfast, very comfy room and generally very positive. We were late bookers, and our room was overlooking the alleyway to the carpark and the pub next door was playing a constant diet of country and Irish music, hence the 4 instead of 5 stars! :-) Seriously though, lovely place and highly recommended!! Oh - the 11.00 breakfast deadline is a winner!!! Nothing worse than having to rush in the morning for a bite, and the later deadline here was a very welcome surprise!!!

Dezi scored 1 / 5 on 08/09/2022

Booked the 2nt 2 breakfast with one evening meal of 2 courses plus tea/coffee. Checking in was good, room basic, but comfortable and clean, bathroom was disappointing. We decided to have the dinner on the first night. Very basic menu and the food and service wasn't good. We asked for the bill so we could pay for the wine, when we noticed that the "complimentary coffee" was charged for. When we pointed this out the bar staff said we should pay for it, but when we queried this and they checked with reception, they stated that on this occasion they wouldn't charge for the coffee. This seemed like they were doing us a favour. I went to reception to clear up the situation, when the same member of bar staff became very irate, telling me to "pack your bag and get out, that you have been trouble all evening". We felt very uncomfortable, but stayed the night. The next morning the breakfast was ok and service was good. We decided that we didn't want to stay the second night and agreed with the receptionist to have a refund for one nights room rate. This receptionist was very dry and did not wish us well on our way. I realise that this started over an error about the coffee on the hotel's part, but how it ended was very poor customer service. Obviously staff should be made aware of the booking conditions and what is included. Unfortunately I could not recommend this hotel to anyone.

Collette scored 4 / 5 on 26/03/2022

Very happy with most aspects. I am a wheelchair user and it wasn’t very wheelchair accessible. You had to come out the front door of the hotel and enter the bar or restaurant through another door on the Main Street. We were lucky it wasn’t raining. The ramp here is a few inches to short to be a ramp. Then I had to get out and walk up the steps to the restaurant. So there was actually no wheelchair access to the restaurant. We would definitely go back though. Staff were lovely and helpful. Food was gorgeous, room was lovely and all very reasonably priced.

It was our second trip to your hotel this year. We absolutely loved it. Staff were extremely nice and we're always on hand to assist us in any way. Food was excellent, we didn't go elsewhere for our meals it was so good. Breakfast was great with a large choice of food. Staff there were very attentive and nice. Bedrooms are spotless and very comfortable. We have already recommended The Kilford Arms to many friends here in Derry and we ourselves would not hesitate to go back. A great experience in a lovely city. Thanks to all your staff.

We chose The Kilford Arms as a welcome break after the Lockdowns. It has a bright and very clean appearance, 2 bars, beer garden, and restaurant. Big Screen and televisions for Sport. Staff were efficient and took time to talk to people, special mention due to Ella in Bar and Don in Restaurant. Room was small with some noise from a bar across the way, when mentioned to Manager Pius, he moved us very quickly to a quieter room. Food: very good Breakfast, excellent Evening Meal. We booked an extra night on this occasion and will definitely return.

The location of the hotel is ideal and there is on site parking hence I would recommend it for that. The hotel is a bit tired & grotty looking and could do with a sprucing up. The glass doors into reception have so many stickers on them it doesn't look very inviting. Not all staff members followed the current guidelines for COVID-19 i.e. either to socially distance or wear a mask/face covering when unable to social distance. In general there was a lot of staff on duty during breakfast & in the bar but not all were aware or vigilant that customers should come before there social chats.

My wife and I arrived at the Kilford Arms on Tues 22nd April 2014 for 2BB1D. First of all, the car park at the rear of the hotel was very handy. The lady at receiption (Anna) was very welcoming. The room was clean, tidy and peaceful. We had the evening meal the first night. It was very tasty. The French and Portuguese waiters were very helpful and very keen to make our stay satisfying. The dining hall was a Mexican style. The breakfast on both mornings was top notch. The Manager allowed us to leave our car in the car park all day on the date we checked out. We loved the Kilford Arms, Kilkenny. Thanks to all the staff. Jimmy Gollogly

By the time we got through it, the food had gone cold. However microwave available if needed. Not huge selection of fresh fruit or different types of bread at breakfast.

We stayed for a three night break, hotel has an excellent location and free car parking, found staff in general to be friendly which are the only positives to be found. Overall the hotel was in a poor state of cleanliness in all public areas, corridors to bedrooms not clean and the bedroom itself has a bloodied handprint on the wall. The standard of breakfast was very poor, the hot plate was cold you had to heat your breakfast in the microwave, the selection of cereals was from lidl/aldi and was poor. The bar was dirty but the staff where friendly. Overall it was a very dissappointing stay and i would not go back the Kilford Arms again.

stayed for 2 nights B&B in early september. check-in was fast and efficient. room was fine but extremely warm and couldn't leave window open because of noise from outside, fan in room was a necessity.bathroom flooded after a shower.only had breakfast in the hotel, not impressed with it at all.poor selection of hot food,no cold meats,cheeses, was expecting a full breakfast menu.didn't bother with the hotel bar or nightclub. seemed to be a mecca for stag/hen parties,not my scene. wouldn't stay again even with an offer. 2 star rating because of size of room,built in iron,tea/coffe making facilities.

Ciaradub9 scored 5 / 5 on 14/02/2012

Really nice welcoming hotel. Staff so nice and helpful. We booked two twin rooms and they offered us a family room to sleep 6 and it was lovely and cosy. It had one double bed and four single beds and two portable TV's. It was clean with lots of hangers which makes a change. Small hairdryer on the wall and soap and shower gel dispensers. The bars were excellent. Great choice as to which one to drink in and a nightclub, didn't go to that so can't comment but entrance was free for guests. The breakfast was carvery with excellent helpful staff again. The hotel is just a stones throw away from a lovely shopping centre. In essence yep we will be back

Fionn scored 3 / 5 on 27/09/2011

Nice reception area and obviously a busy hotel which is a good sign. The room was ok but poorly ventilated. A large standalone fan was provided, but air con would be better. Plenty of milk for the tea and coffee. WELL DONE!! too many hotels are mean with the milk. Breakfast was nice and service was good. Corridors were a tad noisy at night, probably due to the location of the hotel in Kilkenny City, however there was no noise from the nightclub or pub downstairs or even the street. I would have given a higher rating but for the stuffy room and being woken up by other guests in the corridor. parking was off street and reasonably secure and location was ideal.

Dl scored 3 / 5 on 19/09/2011

good points : Nice hotel, rooms clean, food decent. Good bar and very good service. bad points: they could do with updating the rooms, beds not of great quality. Overall fairly happy though

Declan scored 2 / 5 on 13/09/2011

Very nice hotel with exceptionally friendly and helpful staff, especially at reception. The exception was the bouncer at the night club part of it who was extremely unreasonable and it took ages to convince him that my partner was staying with me (she was not noted on the booking form) to the point that he locked me on one side of the door and her on the other. The only black mark against very good accommodation.

Anne scored 5 / 5 on 04/09/2011

I really enjoed my recent stay in the Kilford Arms.It is in a great location beside the bus and train station. The castle, shops, restaurants and bars are all within walking distance of the hotel. The room was spacious and warm and the staff were friendly and helpful. I will stay here again if I am in the area.

Yvonne scored 3 / 5 on 25/07/2011

Kilford arms hotel is very central to all the great bars and shops of Kilkenny. Found the rooms basic with a stale smell( like it use to be a smoking room) Our check in was very efficient and staff were very pleasant. Our dinner was served by a very efficent polish guy and there was a great choice on their menus. We were also given a glass of wine with our dinner,complaints of the manager which was a nice touch. This hotel is great if your not looking to relax and sleep much but party and shop instead!!!! Car parking is free which is a added bonus and hotel is great value for money. I would return again.

Hugo scored 5 / 5 on 23/04/2011

we stayed mid-week and we cannot recomend the Kilford more highly. Its almost in the centre of Kilkenny, a few minutes from the train station, and offered excellent value. The staff were really friendly and the service excellent. They also have a great late night bar with an excellent beer garden (if you smoke like us). Having said that, I know a lot of their weekend business is of the stag/hen variety and we noticed a few of these ariving as we left. However I wouldn't hesitate to recommend the Kilford for a short break in the Marble City, just it might get a little ott at the weekend.

Zulica scored 5 / 5 on 08/03/2011

I stayed in the Kilford Arms for 1 night B&B and 1 evening meal but i was very disappointed with the food and would not eat there again, the room was clean but with a very small window and there was parties and music on both sides of us until early in the morning. The only fault i had with the hotel is after 12pm you could not get back into the hotel through the main entrance and had to use the door for the pub, this door was closed and on a dark street and i had to bang on the door and keep buzzing the bell for over 15 mins, I was own my own coming back to the hotel and this was a little bit scarey. Great value for money and will defo be booking with Lidl breaks in the future but not this Hotel.

Fiona scored 5 / 5 on 22/02/2011

The hotel is located in the centre of the town which is great. The room we got was lovely, a suite with 4 single beds and 1 double bed which we were delighted with, to be altogether. It cost us 39e per person which also included breakfast. Great value for money and will defo be booking with Lidl breaks in the future.

We stayed in the Kilford arms for 2 nights bed & breakfast recently and have to say we really enjoyed our stay. The Staff where very helpful and friendly and the breakfasts and lunch where lovely. The only thing we didnt really enjoy was the evening meal. However that said it wouldn't stop us staying there again. It is in a central location and the parking is free. The pubs and nightclub where great craic.

Anne scored 5 / 5 on 25/01/2011

I booked 2 nights b&b plus 2 evening meals, was very disappointed with the meal and ate out the following night. This is my only complaint as I really enjoyed my stay in the Kilford Arms.The hotel is very central to the castle, shopping area and all the night life and is situated very close to the bus and train station.
