"Including an old church in its premises, this guesthouse is part of a rambling complex of restaurants, nightclub and betting shop. The restaurant where breakfast is served looks like something out of Lord of the Rings. Note of caution to Italians and others who take their coffee seriously - the brown water they serve at breakfast at the Kilford Arms is so bad I had to ask two waiters whether it was tea or coffee. Neither was really sure so they made me a fresh pot (of instant) which I pretended was better. Stick to tea, it's the Irish way."

"We enjoyed our stay very much. It was a little further out from the center than we expected, but its a very reasonable in good weather. In not so good weather, always a possibility in Ireland, the hotel has a good deal with a local taxi firm. The only thing we found inconvenient was a lack of heading and hot water during the afternoon, which meant wee had to wait until after 4pm on our arrival to have showers. This is a clean, stylish and modern hotel, that doesn't sacrifice Irish charm and atmosphere. It doesn't caster to hen and stag parties, so would provide an excellent base for people looking for the more sedate side of Kilkenny."
