Our travel agency booked this hotel for our group for one night. It was centrally located and initial impression with the lobby was very good. When we were assigned our room and bathroom that impression quickly dissipated. The bed was extremely hard (perhaps an extra firm mattress) possibly due to the fact that it was just a mattress over wooden...

Great location, central to town. The rooms are spacious, it's a warm hotel with lots of options for a coffee, drinks and food. We didn't check out the spa or leisure centre- we will have to go back!!! Breakfast was a good buffet, plenty to choose from. Parking across the road is handy. All in all a great option if...

Stayed with family group Saturday night. Restaurant service poor for evening meal. Staff seemed very disorganised. We were given incorrect menu and we were just about to order when staff realised. We ordered three bottles of wine for our group. The waitress placed the three bottles of wine on our table and ran away. Did not open the bottles, allow...

We spent 2 nights in Kilkenny Ormonde hotel . It's a friendly atmosphere feeling in the hotel. Lovely relaxing area to sit after breakfast to watch the world go by. Lovely swimming pool etc. The hotel is in the city ,walking to all the tourist attractions only minutes away. And Kilkenny medieval city is gorgeous. Gerry and Ann.

Nice hotel with fantastic location. Rooms are pleasant and leisure facilities were very nice. I would suggest a small touch up of pain in the corridors although it's not bad you would know the hotel is open a long time. Reception staff were good and friendly it's a shame the same can't be said for the lunch area staff because...

Really in the heart of the city, The Ormonde is a very nice hotel. Didn't have an evening meal but the breakfast was very good with a good selection of well cooked food. Very friendly and helpful staff.
