    great location,very clean hotel with friendly staff, easy for parking and good food

    Great location, clean and comfortable rooms, good food.

    If anything then showers in the room need to be changed as there was no pressure..

    The bath is just for to have it not for use, very shallow.

  • Couple
    9.2

    The location is excellent. Rooms are very nice and comfortable and the rooms with a view of the castle are a little special.

    When we checked in they did not have our booking. The booking had not come through from you?

  • Family with children

    It was very central and good for anyone who would like to go shopping or sightseeing

    The bar staff seemed a bit vague at times.

  • Group of friends

    Great location with wonderful view of Castle. Dining room was lovely for evening dinner.

    Only unfavourable comment was with breakfast. Despite a good range of cold/hot food, the scrambled egg was most unappealing - resembled powdered version that some hotels use.

  • Group of friends

    Staff were fantastic, very helpful and nice. Location was extremely central, with gorgeous view of the river and castle from the terrace bar. However I had specifically requested a quiet room, as I was taking part in a triathlon, and even though the room was on the far side of the hotel from the function room I still found it very noisy as I was just above the courtyard carpark, & people were still talking loudly at 5am on friday morning so I didn't get much sleep, I suppose it's just a busy hotel in a central location, not ideal if looking for quiet night's sleep. It didn't bother me the 2nd night as I was out late myself! Breakfast was delicious.

    I found it very noisy, hard to sleep, there were functions in the hotel both nights (weddings).

    Overall a most pleasant experience , friendly staff, great food, very comfortable room

    Parking , I had to wind my way all the way to the relief carpark at the back. Narrow entrance from street not easy for a big car

    The desk staff were very helpful and the man who brought us coffee in the lounge was extremely efficient and nice, so much so that my daughter remarked on how much service had improved since the recession.I have stayed in the Rivercourt before, with my husband, and we have always found it very comfortable.

    I just loved everything about the hotel, I have no complaints whatsoever, well except the weather but that's not the hotels fault!!!!

  • Group of friends

    What I liked best. Located in the City Centre but quiet and overlooking the river and Kilkenny Castle, which was just beautiful. The food was Gourmet through and through, full marks for presentation and flavour. The staff were very helpful. I was able to park my car at the front door of the hotel. Arrived early for check-in but rooms were ready. I had two rooms booked. We only stayed one night but would certainly stay there again when in Kilkenny. I would highly recommend this hotel.

  • Single

    Strong customer service focus/ethos

    I was unlucky to become ill during my stay (possible food poisoning) which effectively ruined the purpose of my visit (wedding) as I was unable to attend.

    Service was very much improved and the location is great!
