      Nice and warm in the rooms.

      Our bedroom was near a pump that was running all night ,very noisey and the main road was noisey. We had the disabled toilet room & shower l didn't like the shower like getting in a box & no pressure. As we were there 4 nights l think we could of had better but it was o k . Meals were small portions for price.

      The position of the hotel is good but we did not enjoy our 6 nights there very much.

      On arrival we found the receptionist somewhat abrupt and un-inviting. We asked about dinner that night in the dining room and were told it was fairly full with coach parties & would be very noisy and that we would be better off eating in the bar as there was a better selection and was cheaper anyway. The first few nights we found the Bar/ Waiters were much more interested in standing behind the Bar & serving than attending to tables. The food was typical Bar Food. We found the cleanliness in our room generally poor. The day we arrived, we found one of the pillows stained and uncleaned. We did not at that stage complain. We took off the pillow case and left it on the bed assuming they would change it. They took the dirty one and left the pillow without one. At this stage we complained to the manager and everything seemed to improve service wise. Basically, in our opinion, this is a pub with some hotel rooms. We nearly always use Booked.net to book hotel accomodation but this is the worst we have ever had.

      Good sized room with a good bathroom. Staff were very helpful and friendly.

      Staff, location,the staff again,the facilities everything about this hotel makes staying here worthwhile.it is located 1 mile outside Killarney town centre but dont let that bother you. Staff could not do enough for you. We stayed here with 14 members of my family and were made to feel like Lords and Ladies. will be going back again next year

      The staff were very pleasant and although the self-service breakfast was only OK they did serve the best wheaten bread I've ever tasted.

      Bathroom could have been cleaner. Bar food expensive.

    • Couple
      7.0

      The price for 2 nights for a double room was very good, the showers were always very hot with good pressure.Double room was very spacious with plenty of storage space with good size tables and mirrors.

      Tv was very small and remote wouldnt work when lying in bed had to lean forward to change channel or adjust volume was annoying, the sheets had stains and hair on them. The room was very hot and stuffy even with heaters off and window open (April time).

      Leaving the hotel

      Never again to stay at this hotel - ongoing complaint currently with hotel. No booking on arrival. Hotel will not take responsibility and are blaming Booked.net.

    • Group of friends
      10.0

      The staff were very friendly and helpful.

      Wireless internet access is only available in the lobby and lounge, and not in the rooms.

    • Older travelers

      Friendly hotel in good location just outside Killarney but handy for travelling around Ring of Kerry. Entertainment in bar at weekends but didnt begin till 10pm. Request quiet room at back of hotel, ours had lovely views of the mountains.

      Only critism would be that the breakfast staff were too busy setting tables for lunch to attend to customers however the food was great.
