Recent guest reviews

The hotel is lovely, conveniently located, and very clean. Staff was personable and professional. We truly enjoyed our stay there. The pub is wonderful for breakfast, dinner, or an evening drink. All around wonderful.

This is a lovely hotel. The staff were very friendly, the rooms were fresh, modern and were beautiful. The food and service in the bar was very good and the food was very tasty. Will definitely be recommending this place and will be returning. 😀

Had a fabulous time in this hotel. 15 minutes walk from Outlet & town centre. The hotel & rooms were spotlessly clean, beds very comfortable & the food was to die for... good portions for dinner. Great selection of food for breakfast. What impressed me most was the friendliness of staff & the food. Although it’s hard to distinguish between Great food, great portions,superb cleanliness & wonderful friendliness. It was funny to hear a Kerry accent from a Hungarian waiter who was really lovely & who recommended delicious cocktails 👍 Definitely was a great weekend for me & my sister and would definitely recommend it. .

Popped in for something to eat about 5 to 9 in the evening. The staff were welcoming and friendly. I ordered a steak sandwich. It was the best steak sandwich I have ever had. Beautifully cooked and so tender. Not a bad price either. I would highly recommend this place for bar food and good service.

Spent a night here after driving the Ring of Kerry. It's on the outskirts of Killarney itself, so you'd probably have to drive if you want to get into the town area where bars and restaurants are located. Spacious rooms, great front desk service. Has a bar and restaurant, though we didn't eat dinner during our stay. Plenty of parking out front. Breakfast was very good too, with both hot food, cereal and fruit options. We weren't here long, but enjoyed our brief stay. Definitely a nice hotel for a visit to Killarney or just a quick pit stop.

Stayed in this hotel recently on a trip around Ireland and it was the best hotel experience we experienced. Check in was easy and the room was lovely. There was a lovely atmosphere in the bar where we had some cocktails, but the best part of the stay was the amazing food, we had Breakfast each morning and the hot buffet was great, but the spread on the cold buffet was second to none, homemade breads, juices, smoothies and muffins, doughnuts, all brilliant. Had carvery one day and it was fantastic, there's a few plagues in the hotel which say the hotel has won best carvery in Ireland over the last few years and you can see why. Brilliant value for money too. Healthy portions at a very cheap price. We didn't eat the Brasserie on the first night as we had prior arrangements with friends but we are on the second night and that was the best meal we had in Ireland, there were 6 of us in total and we all had something different, Beef Cheek, Homemade Steak and Kidney pie, Salmon with Asparagus and Peas, Sea Bass with Shrimp and Fennel, half roast duck and Burger with chilli beef all brilliant. We all saved room for desserts and they were also fantastic, all homemade and full of flavour. We were served by Jack and he was very attentive and good craic. We'll hopefully be back in the future.

Had dinner in the bar with my girlfriend and we were blown away with how good the food was. The braised beef cheek was unreal and my girlfriend wasn't stuck for choice either, they've a good choice of coeliac friendly options which was great. The brownie is top class!! Service was good and relaxed, I'll be back again for sure.

This hotel is located on the outskirts of Killarney you could walk it during the day but probably take you about 20mins. I stayed here for work midweek my room was big and had a double bed, tv, tea/coffee facilities and bathroom with bath come shower. I did notice a sign in the room where you could buy the items in the room i.e. TV,cushions etc which i never came accross before and found a bit odd, the decor of the hotel varies in different arts of the hotel kinda like they are undecided which direction they are going in. I stayed in for dinner as I arrived late enough to the hotel, the restaurant/bar was quiet and has ample seating and a good selection on the menu. I had a chicken salad with chips and I the portion was a good size I didnt even need the chips. Breakfast was both a hot/cold buffet and located in the same restaurant/bar. The hotel was perfect for what i required and I would stay here again.

I stayed here for one night with my brother and mother, we were able to have connecting rooms (nicely accommodated thanks to the staff), my brother had a room to himself and me & my mum shared the other. Our rooms were clean and beds were comfy. However a few of the TV channels weren't working properly and the room was very hot, my mother tried fiddling with the radiator but don't think it made a difference. We ended up sleeping with the window open all night. We had our dinner in the connecting restaurant. The menu looked fantastic, plenty on offer and everything sounded really good, if a bit pricey. My brother had the duck which he said was quite nice. My mum had the tandoori chicken which she said was dry and needed a sauce or something. Her ''bombay'' potatoes were bland and underseasoned. I had the vegetable nasi goreng rice dish, tasted alright, nothing spectacular. A few rather greasy prawn crackers dolloped on top too. I'm pretty sure it was supposed to have roasted cashew nuts in it but I didn't see any, unless I'm mistaken. I was expecting something a bit more appetizing, given the appealing look of the menu. We were starving so we ate the lot. My brother ordered a Bailey's coffee instead of a dessert, and a young waiter brought him what looked like a regular black coffee in a glass mug, which he quickly took back and returned with a proper Bailey's coffee. I had the chocolate brownie which was pretty good and Mum had the sherry trifle which she said was nice. I have to say the restaurant was a very cold place to eat in. We were pretty freezing on return to our rooms (we were grateful to the high room temperature then!) I overheard a young couple sitting near us asking the waiter if it was possible to light the fire, to which he replied no for whatever reason. One last comment I'll make about our dinner experience was that any peace and tranquility was interrupted by this awful racket that seemed to come from the downstairs area of the restaurant. It sounded like one of those casino arcade games, it was a loud whizzing noise up and down like something out of a fairground. It carried on throughout our meal.This other woman was walking around the restaurant with a small toddler (obviously trying to keep him entertained) they kept going up and down the stairs, probably to the source of the noise to try and keep the kid happy, which is all well and good but not a pleasant experience when you're trying to have your dinner. Overall it didn't really live up to its great looking menu, but we left with full-stomachs despite this. Our breakfast the next morning was disappointing. The sausages were overcooked and burnt. The toast was stone cold and soggy. The coffee was also stone cold. The only things nice were the pastries and the baked beans which were actually scalding hot - a rare occurrence to have hot baked beans in my opinion! The staff were polite and welcoming, the ladies at reception were very pleasant. The restaurant staff were also quite welcoming. The place was clean and tidy and quiet at night.

Very clean and tidy room. The staff on reception were very friendly. Only reason I gave it a very good rather than excellent is because we didn't go to breakfast so I can't comment on that. Great value for money
