Kilford Arms Hotel, Kilkenny
Staff was friendly, room was nice and quiet. Would stay again
Paula, us1 night trip
Kilford Arms Hotel, Kilkenny
This was one of the worst experiences I have had in a while at a hotel. When I checked in, I was given instructions on how to get to my rooom. The elevator goes up basically 2 floors and then I had to walk down another carrying all of my luggage because the rooms are setup over split levels. Immediately upon getting into the room, it smelled like smoke. In fact, the hallway by my room smelled like smoke because of all of the smoking outside and improper ventilation/bad windows. I went downstairs to ask for another room and it took 15 minutes to even get someone at the desk. Multiple told me they would look for the desk clerk, but no one could find him. When he finally got there, he told me that people like to smoke underneath and outside the building so everywhere was going to smell that way which is a complete and blatant lie. I walked all the hallways and while some of them did not all of them. If rooms/hallways are going to smell like smoke, make them smoking rooms. After I told him I could absolutely not stay in that room, he finally gave me another room, which was down another flight of stairs. While this room didn’t smell like smoke, it’s s little ridiculous to have to fight to get a room change and then carry luggage BACK UP two flights of stairs just to get in an elevator and ride it back down.

Last night was great
The hotel looks a little old but its a good price and free parking. the best part is the bars attached to the property. Peter the bartender is a great employee. He should get a raise

Very centrally located!
Hotel had everything we needed. Was very clean and very centrally located. Couldn’t have been in a better spot! Parking was easy and WiFi was excellent. A few tiny things could use updating (hair dryer, etc) but as a whole, we had a great stay.
