The staff is awesome and very nice. The accommodations are also decent size as well as a perfect location. My only wish would be for better beds and pillows. Other than that it's a nice place to lay your head for the night!

Went there last weekend and had a lovely stay. Room was spacious and staff were extremely friendly and helpful! Breakfast consisted of fruit, cereals, toast and a selection of cheeses, hams and juices. Would recommend!

We stopped in Kilkenny after Dublin and this hotel was a nice break after staying in a room right in the heart of city center! It was nice and quiet, big room, tucked in the back.

A wonderful spot close to everything in Kilkenny. Sinead was a terrific hostess and took great pride in this B&B and it was a thrill to have picked such a great place to stay. One of the biggest rooms I've stayed in, for a townhouse/B&B. Really clean. Loved that they validated the overnight parking in a secure parkade. Had one... More

This hotel was very good! The included breakfast was very filling with multiple juices, cereals, bread, ham, cheeses, and warm croissants and pastries. The rooms were clean and comfortable. The water pressure was lacking in our shower, but that was our only real complaint! The service was amazing! They made sure our stay was great and asked many times if... More

This is not a luxurious experience but the low price and excellent location mean that it is good value. We stayed overnight in room 203 which has received bad reviews. However, although the room is small, it was clean. The shower was more than adequate and the room temperature was pleasant (though we did visit in May). The breakfast is... More

First impressions are very important. We were greeted by a lovely girl called Sinead. A lovely welcome after being initially very impressed by the outside. Lovw Georgian houses. The room was tidy, aired and clean. Nice view, tv, two single beds. Not ideal but you adapt!!! Breakfast was gorgeous. The fry was not missed. Like Goldilocks it was just right.... More

First impressions, it looked nice but then it was down hill all the way. Our room was freezing & it was winter. We discovered they'd switched the radiator off. We had to leave to get warm. I went to put the bedside lamp on, but there were no bulbs in either lamps & the bathroom light didn't work. The curtains... More

We enjoy staying in older establishments such as Berkeley House, which was built in the early 1700's, so the occasional creaks heard while walking up the stairs only added to its charm in our estimation. The rooms are nice with good beds, and all the bathrooms have been updated. The dining room is very pleasant; we were provided warm croissants,... More
