Recently stayed in this hotel for two nights.The hotel is very centrally located in the heart of Kilkenny. We parked our car up and ended up not using it for the whole weekend as we were easily able to walk around the city. Although the hotel does not have parking they offer very good value in the adjacent multi-storey car...

Recently stayed in the Ormonde Hotel two nights for a wedding. Staff very friendly and most helpful. Leisure centre great to use, although I wish they would play background music of more southing nature. Location ideal for both walking the town, shopping and driving to outline tourist spots. Visit Kells village about 20 minute drive.

We were booked into the Ormonde via a tour of Ireland. There were three of us, and usually that means three twin beds in a room the same size as used for two people. The Ormonde gave us a huge room, which was more than twice the size of the standard size room. Needless to say, we were very comfortable....

It seems that this hotel, which served us so well at Easter, has undergone a bit of a change. If I had to guess at the change, I would say staff cuts. The problem I found with the hotel this time was that it is clearly understaffed. We had problems with this in several areas: Staff overworked in the restaurant...

This hotel was a little tired, however, the service was very good and the location excellent. The pool and leisure facilities were good. We has a room on the third floor at the end of the corridor which was a great location as it was very quiet. The cold buffet breakfast was very limited but the hot breakfast was fine....
