Stayed for 3 nights on a wedding package and everything was faultless from moment we arrived. Reception staff very welcoming, my room (127) was extremely spacious clean, beds very comfortable( double and single in room) bathroom modern spacious. My only complaint was I couldnt open bathroom window as there was a smokers area below and smell of cigarette smoke was disgusting... food in restaurant was well presented tasty and again staff were very professional, breakfast was plentiful buffet style full Irish, cereals, fruits, continental.... The hotel is €8 in a taxi from town centre/train station or you can walk easily as it is a straight walk in Cork Rd to town(20 min walk) there is a supermarket petrol station and takeaway 5 mins walk from hotel.... beautiful Conseratory to have a drink and relax off the bar, public areas were spotless..... wedding planner(Natalie) was excellent and staff ( special shout to Michael,a young waiter who was so helpful on day of wedding)excelled themselves for the bridal party. I highly recommend this hotel and hope to return.

Stayed here with my partner. Nice hotel, was a little bit disappointed as thought the rooms were nicer online then in reality. Loved the shower and lovely big towels. Good value for two nights. Had 3 coarse meal, starter and dessert were fabulous, main coarse was a bit disappointing. Very happy with breakfast. Overall had a lovely stay.

The hotel is a bit worn, but with a relaxed and friendly atmosphere. The rooms are fine, and in the bar/restaurant there are meals at reasonable prices. Our room was facing a small lawn, where people could walk by, so we had to draw the curtain to get some privacy. Free parking.

Arrived about 2 hours early and had our room 101 ready. Lovely surroundings and furnishings with plenty of quiet common areas. Had set dinner menu in restaurant, very well priced at €25 for 3 course meal. 10oz steak supplement for €5 extra well Worth it. Miguel served us with some fantastic service and excellent food, only let down were the French fries (slightly overcooked and dry) Presentation was perfect. Room is good size, well presented and very clean, however the ensuite could do with a bit of up grading as it's very average and a bit dated compared to rest of hotel. Bar/lounge also well presented with efficient staff. Plenty of room that tables are not on top of each other. Conservatory also very nice. Good hotel with very reasonable prices in comparison to orders in Killarney. Will definitely visit again.

Lovely hotel, room was lovely, very clean. Staff were great very nice and helpful, good location a few mins from town centre, with parking and super value in walking distance next to hotel. Killarney has lots of attractions for every age, beautiful in all weathers.

I'm not reviewing the hotel from an accommodation point of view, but instead the Carvery Lunch which my husband and I enjoyed today before leaving Killarney after a busy day in town. We decided to call into the hotel's bar for a late lunch before heading for home. We were late, arrived at around 2.45pm and the Carvery only runs til 3pm. Despite that the welcome we got from the staff couldn't have been nicer. There was a good choice of food, portions were workman-like and we thought we got good value for money by Killarney standards. Both our meals and our desserts were very tasty. Although the bar was busy with other diners there still was plenty of seating. For those diners opting for tap water, there was a good-sized table with plenty of glasses and carafes, and three different flavours of cordials. Whilst eating we noticed that even after 3pm, there were still numerous new arrivals being served and the Carvery finally closed around 3.15pm-ish. All in all, lovely food and excellent service. We shall be back.

I recently stopped here for a quick bite to eat, I had the carvery on offer and it was excellent, It was hot, fresh and presented well. Only concern was Too much on the plate. Other than that i enjoyed and will be back

Stayed here for two nights in the beginning of July for a wedding, had my 21 month old with me, the room was a good size very clean, have to mention Michelle the waitress at our table, I had to leave the room as it was to much for my small man and she made sure I was looked after by bringing my dinner out to me in the bar, she is a credit to the hotel! Would definitely come back everything was excellent, thanks

We stayed at 5 different hotels during our self-drive ireland tour. This was our third stop and was not even close to our favorite. The hot tub was in a weird place and was junky. The staff were not friendly and kind of just went about "business as usual". you kind of felt like you were interrupting their effort to work less. We did not feel any hospitality or personable interactions here. We got out of there as soon as possible in the morning. Thankfully our next stop was amazing@

reception sign..weak to say the least....area not a patch on rest of very good, modern bright and very clean......excellent i would say, bathroom excellent as well.....corridors all clean and painting and new carpets.....girl on reception not very friendly....all she wanted was credit card punched tro mention of welcome or did you ever stay area is where breaky is served, serious turn off..........well its a bar area, not nice for breaky....little b and b in feel and texture.....any nice restaurant please??? need class at breaky as well.....see brehon, see manor west in tralee, see rose hotel, see sea lodge waterville, food only ok.....toast done on one side only......would i return?? only if breaky area is seriously up graded and in keeping with rest of hotel..reception area needs wee extension and upgrade, some pictures on bare walls upstairs, and speed up lift a bit..too slow.....i did skip breaky few days during my stay..went down town instead.....
