Very Good8.0
Super location and value for money.
Excellent location and value for money. Owner was most helpful and welcoming. Room had loads of space and was in very good condition. The Berkley is very central in kilkenny, easy to walk to pubs and restaurants with kilkenny castle just around the corner. We will definitely stay there again.

Great Location, near castle and do
Fantastic location, great staff, surprising wonderful breakfast, and free parking. Very small room, squeaky bed, but we were only there to sleep, shower and have breakfast, so it was fine. Don't be freaked out if you arrive late in the evening and have to get your key from across the way. It's not a big deal, but the main entrance is around the corner, not the most obvious from across the street. You can see all of the main old city, castle, and walk in the gardens right from the hotel.

Please upgrade this very rough diamond
This place needs attention. The service was wonderful and the location and partnership with the hotel across the street saved it . The beds are horrible and need to be replaced and the breakfast is not ready for prime time. Canned fruit salad, one poor service person totally overwhelmed, not enough of anything and a very slim selection, not even a hard boiled egg in sight...come on.No lift, the front desk had to call across the street for a barman to help with our luggage, and for a fan for our room which was hot. This was done with aplomb but again, with some attention a fan could be in each room and nothing made up for those beds! Location was great. Please spend some to upgrade this place, it could be a jewel.

Didn't have our reservation when we arrived and we were informed no rooms were available. I complained to and they were all of a sudden able to find a room. No water pressure to the room, no elevator and staying on third floor, shower had mold in corners and on door. Not a 3 star Hotel 2 at best.

Great experience in Kilkenny
Overall, an excellent stay. The only negative factor in the stay was the condition of the building - obviously an old building, but it was still very comfortable. Excellent beds, amazing service, great complimentary breakfast. Walking distance to everything in Kilkenny, including Kilkenny Castle. I highly recommend the Hibernian House!
