Visited Kilkenny recently and stayed at The Laurels. Great location that is walkable and centrally located to many great sites and restaurants, but unfortunately would NEVER STAY THERE AGAIN due to my reservation problems. At reservation, I was unable to confirm the type of room booked which resulted in my cancelling and rebooking in order to ensure correct # of...

I was extremely disappointed to see your negative review of your experience at The Laurels Kilkenny - especially as I felt that despite the confusion created by the multiple cancellations, varying booking engines used by your party and reconfiguring of your room requirements that we had addressed your issues adequately prior to your departure. While you made your final booking...

After a long day of driving it was dark by the time we arrived in Kilkenny and finding the B&B seemed daunting. Called Brian and he guided us in until we landed in his driveway. Very nice property, nice big bathroom ands comfortable beds. Breakfast was great, the Canadian flag a nice touch! Great location for sight seeing...all within walking...

A group of about 15 of travelled to Kilkenny for a night out & stayed at The Laurels B&B in late January. This is a lovely Bed & Breakfast, just a short taxi ride from the city centre & a nice pub just around the corner. The rooms are spacious, very clean & the owner could not have done more...

Wonderfully cosy B&B with a nice pub just round the corner and 10 minutes walk to the city center. The room was clean and tidy and the spa-bath was superb. The hosts were warm and welcoming (and have the most beautiful dog). Highly recommend.

Stayed for 2 nights on Friday and Saturday. The service was excellent and very friendly. The room was perfect for 2 and the facilities were great. Breakfast was very relaxed and enjoyable and catered to all needs. First time in a B and B and the would recommend this place for anyone biding Kilkenny for a stay.

We were shocked at the noise from the busy roundabout that was constant during our stay. Our room was upstairs which we didn't like. At no stage were we offered a room downstairs. Breakfast times were quite late if you didn't book early, even though there was enough room to seat everyone together. Supplies were not kept topped up and...

We are also extremely disappointed and somewhat surprised to read your review. We specifically ask every guest prior to check out and prior to payment, if everything's been alright. We did not get this feedback at that time when we could have addressed these issues in person. Our rooms have recently been adjudicated by the Irish Tourist Board who have...
