Paul scored 4 / 5 on 13/03/2015

Nice hotel. Clean and tidy. Very friendly staff. Rooms were ok. Basic stuff but clean. Food in the restaurant was delicious as was the breakfast. Hotel is just outside the town and the hotel can organize taxi transport quickly. It's not top level accommodation but it's perfectly good for a nice reasonably priced stay.

Margaret scored 3 / 5 on 30/06/2014

Tom scored 3 / 5 on 30/04/2014

Stay was comfortable with nice clean rooms. Nothing fancy, just basic comfortable stay. Restaurant was ok, nothing fancy, just what it said. Breakfast buffet was very good.

Elizabeth scored 5 / 5 on 27/04/2014

We spent 3 nights at the Aspect Hotel Kilkenny and had a lovely stay.The staff were so helpful and friendly offering advice on places to visit and even allowing us to avail of a late check out at no extra cost. The room was spacious and very clean with enough room for a fold up bed for my third child. The breakfast was lovely and plentiful and very relaxed. Although the hotel is not in the City the location was fine and nice and quiet at night. I would stay here again and hope to do so in the very near future.

Reviewer20488604 scored 3 / 5 on 26/04/2014

Andy scored 3 / 5 on 24/02/2014

Nice Hotel - very good breakfast, nice rooms and pleasant bar. Only complaint would be only two channels on tv - RTE2 & TG4 - was told by reception that was because of recent storms - think it was excuse for any problem!!

John scored 2 / 5 on 01/11/2012

Over a mile outside Kilkenny next to a retail park,a former days hotel in need of upgrade as furniture tardy and carpets too. Staff good and food ok (breakfast good) dinner not so good.We had a deal for two nights with breakfast and one meal. No wifi in rooms with crt tvs(ancient at this day and age) coupled with we found out that our meal was just a two course(found this out after we had got desert. Not bad hotel but would not stay there again,sorry!

Fionn scored 3 / 5 on 01/10/2012

Our first impressions of this hotel were negative, mainly because it took us twenty minutes to find it. Sat Nav and Google maps having been of no assistance due to incorrect GPS location. Once we found it after assistance from a desk clerk at the hotel by phone, it was a nice modern airy hotel. Check in was simple and hassle free. We got one key card between the two of us for the room. The room was clean and bright with a nice big bed and small but adequate bathroom. We went to a wedding on the day we arrived and came back at 230am. This is where the hotel loses its marks, there were people drinking in the lobby where the bar and reception are located. This is fine, I like to have a late drink myself sometimes. However there was one clerk-porter on duty behind the desk. No other night porter in evidence. On a friday night as it was I would expect there to be at least two porters, or at least one on duty patrolling the hotel and keeping order. We went to bed and about hour or more later were woken up several times by people talking and shouting in the corridor, likely the revellers we passed on the way in. This is not good enough. The main reason to stay in a hotel is to sleep!!!! Breakfast was buffet style and good, no complaints there. We did not mention our issues to the staff on checking out as we wanted to get home for a proper sleep. Mid week would probably be a better time to stay here.

Reviewer48443634 scored 3 / 5 on 12/09/2012

Hotel 25 minutes walk from city centre , not 15 as stated, no toilet in lobby or bar area , had to go to a lower floor for same, otherwise very comfortable stay

Clare scored 2 / 5 on 10/09/2012

Good and Bad, Receptionist was not very friendly, room was clean and comfortable, but smelled of stale cigarettes. Bathroom was compact with the smallest bath I've seen in my life. Restaurant Staff could not be faulted and the food was delicious. I think its more of a stop over hotel or one for hen & stag nights, not one for your romantic weekend away.

Bernadette scored 2 / 5 on 29/07/2012

Staff very friendly, but not somewhere i would go again very basic ideal for one night stop off and should be advertised as such.

Clare scored 3 / 5 on 02/07/2012

Hotel and staff were very nice, food was lovely, Only thing it took us a while to find hotel it is a bit out of the town, would have to get taxi if you want to go to city for the evening, Other than that we had a lovely stay!!!

Shelly scored 1 / 5 on 05/09/2011

I was not pleased with this hotel.I found the front of house staff very unfriendly. I feel the eating area should not be in front view for new/old arrivals, departees. It should be in a seperate area of the hotel. There was no option to have your breakfast to the room which is an option in most modern up to date hotels. Because of this we missed a breakfast in which we had already paid for but were ten mins late and were told we couldn't have anything. We had previously been at a wedding the day before so we were tired and woke up late. Extremely basic hotel, the decor is very drab and dull. I will not be staying in this hotel again and have informed most of my family and friends about it's unfriendliness and lack of welcoming nature from its staff.

Julie scored 5 / 5 on 02/05/2011

I'd rate the Aspect Hotel as 3 star was spotlessly clean and rooms are comfortable but the food was just fair

Alison scored 5 / 5 on 20/04/2011

The efficiency and helpfulness of reception team was superb nothing was too much trouble, the comfort of accommodation was good and the standards of housekeeping were also great. We really enjoyed our stay at the Aspect Hotel and we would have no hesitation in recommending this hotel to others. We found the hotel to be excellent value for money, with very friendly and helpful staff. The buffet breakfast was great, the best that we have had in a while. We had a great stay and would recommend this hotel to anyone and to book it through Lidl Breaks. Excellent value for money. Thank You to both Lidl Breaks and the Aspect Hotel.

My stay in the Days Hotel, Kikenny was very enjoyabe. The hotel was very comfortable and nicely decorated. The staff were very helpful and pleasant. It was fantastic value for money and the food was georgous. I would have no problem recommending this hotel for a break away. Kind regards

Helen scored 5 / 5 on 02/07/2010

The Staff were very helpful and friendly. It was so good to be dealing with Irish people in the hospitality sector for a change. We were a little disappointed with our evening meal. After an hour and a half wait due to a busy restaurant the meal was not good. But the staff apologised and gave us a complimentary drink. Apart from that we enjoyed our stay very much. I would class it as great value for money.
