Had a lovely stay in this Hotel . Room was very hot,but comfortable.Staff very helpful and pleasent.There was a couple of stag parties staying and were very noisy on my second night .Doors banging,shouting and messing on corridor up to 5am .I would stay there again .A cheap taxi drive to town also.

Stay was comfortable with nice clean rooms. Nothing fancy, just basic comfortable stay. Restaurant was ok, nothing fancy, just what it said. Breakfast buffet was very good.

We spent 3 nights at the Aspect Hotel Kilkenny and had a lovely stay.The staff were so helpful and friendly offering advice on places to visit and even allowing us to avail of a late check out at no extra cost. The room was spacious and very clean with enough room for a fold up bed for my third child. The breakfast was lovely and plentiful and very relaxed. Although the hotel is not in the City the location was fine and nice and quiet at night. I would stay here again and hope to do so in the very near future.

Nice Hotel - very good breakfast, nice rooms and pleasant bar. Only complaint would be only two channels on tv - RTE2 & TG4 - was told by reception that was because of recent storms - think it was excuse for any problem!!

The hotel was within easy reach of the city centre. The staff were warm and welcoming. The rooms were clean, the bed very comfortable, and breakfast was very tasty. Would definitely stay again

Our first impressions of this hotel were negative, mainly because it took us twenty minutes to find it. Sat Nav and Google maps having been of no assistance due to incorrect GPS location. Once we found it after assistance from a desk clerk at the hotel by phone, it was a nice modern airy hotel. Check in was simple and hassle free. We got one key card between the two of us for the room. The room was clean and bright with a nice big bed and small but adequate bathroom. We went to a wedding on the day we arrived and came back at 230am. This is where the hotel loses its marks, there were people drinking in the lobby where the bar and reception are located. This is fine, I like to have a late drink myself sometimes. However there was one clerk-porter on duty behind the desk. No other night porter in evidence. On a friday night as it was I would expect there to be at least two porters, or at least one on duty patrolling the hotel and keeping order. We went to bed and about hour or more later were woken up several times by people talking and shouting in the corridor, likely the revellers we passed on the way in. This is not good enough. The main reason to stay in a hotel is to sleep!!!! Breakfast was buffet style and good, no complaints there. We did not mention our issues to the staff on checking out as we wanted to get home for a proper sleep. Mid week would probably be a better time to stay here.

Good and Bad, Receptionist was not very friendly, room was clean and comfortable, but smelled of stale cigarettes. Bathroom was compact with the smallest bath I've seen in my life. Restaurant Staff could not be faulted and the food was delicious. I think its more of a stop over hotel or one for hen & stag nights, not one for your romantic weekend away.

FOUND THE HOTEL VERY GOOD VALUE - EASY FREE PARKING - ONLY 5 MINUTES FROM THE CITY CENTRE - ROOM WAS LOVELY WITH ALL THE EXTRAS (IRON, KETTLE ETC..) - FOOD VERY GOOD. ONLY "BUT" I HAVE ABOUT THE HOTEL WAS THE LADY ON RECEPTION - SPOKE VERY FAST - NOT VERY FRIENDLY AND IT WAS A PITY AS EVERYTHING AND EVERY ONE ELSE WAS VERY GOOD. WOULD STILL RECOMEND AND RETURN TO THE HOTEL. PAULA FROM DUBLIN

I was not pleased with this hotel.I found the front of house staff very unfriendly. I feel the eating area should not be in front view for new/old arrivals, departees. It should be in a seperate area of the hotel. There was no option to have your breakfast to the room which is an option in most modern up to date hotels. Because of this we missed a breakfast in which we had already paid for but were ten mins late and were told we couldn't have anything. We had previously been at a wedding the day before so we were tired and woke up late. Extremely basic hotel, the decor is very drab and dull. I will not be staying in this hotel again and have informed most of my family and friends about it's unfriendliness and lack of welcoming nature from its staff.

I'd rate the Aspect Hotel as 3 star ....it was spotlessly clean and rooms are comfortable but the food was just fair

<p>The hotel itself was nice and the bedrooms were also quite nice. The receptionist wasnt very friendly and the fact they couldn't bring a jug of water to the room also wasn't very helpful. </p>

<p>The Staff were very helpful and friendly. It was so good to be dealing with Irish people in the hospitality sector for a change. We were a little disappointed with our evening meal. After an hour and a half wait due to a busy restaurant the meal was not good. But the staff apologised and gave us a complimentary drink. Apart from that we enjoyed our stay very much. I would class it as great value for money.</p>

<p>We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Days Inn. While they seemed short on staff we were made to feel very welcome and service levels were good. The food was excellent and the accommodation was very good. No hesitation in recommending this hotel.</p>
