Great location, room was spacious and the breakfast was very good. Ideal accommodation for a weekend break in Kinsale.
Parking is limited but there is public parking available and can be located nearby.
The Old Bank Townhouse was located right in the city center in a beautiful old building. The rooms were clean and comfortable and the staff were very helpful.
The staff was exemplary. As but one example, I had to leave for the airport at 5:30a. The hotel provided me with a breakfast bag placed on my door at 5a. I did not ask for it, the staff kindly offered to provide it for me. I neglected to ask the young lady's name who I mostly interacted with but she was an attractive, blond, tall young lady with a ready smile. She KNOWS how to delight the customer with exemplary service.
Great location. Very clean. Wonderful bed. Fantastic 5* breakfast Good price for 2 sharing Friendly & helpful staff What more do you want?
Loved this place! The fine old building had wonderful woodwork and a sense of antiquity. It is beautifully located for walking all over Kinsale. The breakfasts are served in their gourmet cafe and coffee shop. Enjoy the buffet and order from the menu as well... Delicious! Barry's historical walking tour of Kinsale was terrific... Runs daily at 11 o'clock and begins at the Visitors' Center. The staff were able to guide us re: parking. This was our least expensive guest house in Ireland and one of our favorites!
Great location, friendly staff, comfortable bed, lovely view, and excellent coffee and breakfast! We walked into our room and felt like we stepped back in time. Lovely antique decor and large paned window with a view of the harbor! The staff was so warm and friendly, they put us at ease. Felt like our home away from home. We will definitely return.
Only one thing that could be improved. The sink has two separate hot and cold faucets and I had difficulty washing my face at night. I'm not one to fill the sink with water and splash on my face for fear of cleaning solvent residue. So I had to bend over the bathtub and wash my face that way. Very difficult to do.
Friendly and welcoming staff; the baking in the cafe.
Needs soundproofing between room 7 and the bathroom of room 8....
Friendly staff and great location.
Parking was a problem, but I think that's true of most accommodations in Kinsale
the breakfast was good
the ratings for this facility must have been from 30/40 years ago! It was dingy and extremely small room. The pictures on the wall were beautiful but it is not the current reality of the decor or facility. We had a front facing room but the window was so dirty you could not enjoy the view. At best, this hotel would be a 2 star in my opinion. Very disappointing!
The room was clean and nicely appointed. Great location in the centre of town. Enjoyable breakfast in the cafe downstairs.
The Old BankTown House was excellent for its position within Kinsale. The place was well run and comfortable. Costs and access to the booking site were good.
No major dislikes as we were very satisfied. The photos on the website made the rooms appear bigger but this was expected as all places do the same. We were still very happy with the standard of the room. While the cafe was advertised as 'gourmet' it still was constrained by the standard British cheese, chips, fat and salt content menus. However, the standard of taste and preparation of most items on the menu was superior to many competitors.
Location is superb. Near everything in town. Staff could not have been more helpful. Room was very clean, had an excellent view, and well-appointed. Breakfast was extensive in choices, and excellent in quality and quantity. Wifi signal was extremely good. In summary, we had a wonderful stay.
No exceptions taken. Outstanding property.
Great location and very comfortable once in the room.
Reception wasn't always available. There was no one working at nights but even during the day, it was hit and miss. Thin interior walls. My door wasn't working properly and wasn't fixed despite multiple requests. No designated hotel parking.
All was good. Food was excellent and staff very friendky and helpful
Only problem was that our room was on the top floor which meant climbing a lot of stairs. I know there was a lift bit I cannot travel in lifts.
The room was very comfortable, clean, spacious. Good toiletteries provided in bathroom. Breakfast in the Gurmet cafe' downstairs was very nice with lot to choose from. Staff was very friendly and helpful.
