We really enjoyed our two night stay here. Friendly staff and lovely dining areas and breakfast room. Breakfast was really nice and hot plates ready for you.(I hate cold plates) I didn't like the stuffed lion in the entrance lobby. Other than that..it was a most enjoyable stay!! Thank you Kilford Arms staff!!

Bedroom- we were given a family room with 4 beds so no shortage of room. The room is dated, TV very old with remote control not working. A tiny window so the bedroom was really lacking natural light. The room was also warm and stuffy. We were located at a quieter end of the hotel - room 59 so that...

Had nice 2 night stay with my partner in Kilkenny for a friends wedding. Great value for money, for a nice, warm & clean room. Full Irish breakfast was nice, but there was also a continental breakfast option. There is a front bar, and a super bar & nightclub too. Hotel is located conveniently less than 5 minutes from the...

Hotel was grand for a one or two night stay. Layout of hotel is confusing, abit like a maize. Rooms were clean but bery warm. Hotel room was very basic but clean which is the main thing. Wouldnt be in a rush to stay here again even though I dont have any complaints.

The Hotel is located less than five minuates away frrom the train station. The staff were friendly and helpful. Though it only has one floor, the layout is a bit like a maze to start but you can follow the signs to get to your room. We got a triple room though we only needed a double. the room was...

From check-in to house keeping to the bar and restaurant staff, its easy to see where this establishment has invested its resources. It was an absolute delight to deal with such friendly and helpful people. Great location- 2 min stroll from everything. Food was absolutely delicious from breakfast to dinner. Excellent Wi-Fi throughout. Our large family room had everything we...

Ideally Located in the city, within walking distance of everything. Friendly helpful staff. Rooms are quite dated and cold-could do with being refurbished. Food enjoyable and a nice atmosphere in both bars.

Our stay at the Kilford Arms Hotel was very disappointing from the get-go. It is more of a hotel to throw your head down after a drinking session. Good location next to all the pubs and clubs but most certainly not for couples. Reception staff were very unhelpful. The heating was turned off and our room was freezing (it was...
