“Not a very good hotel”
Reviewed 16 November 2009

We stayed here in October 2009. I booked it because it had a swimming pool. This pool opened approx. 3pm. to 8pm. there was no mention of limited hours on web site. Had to purchase a cotton swim hat before we were allowed in pool. Also we were at the back of the hotel and at 7 am every morning were woken up by the coaches starting up. The hotel was quite tired and needed updating.

My husband and I spent the Sunday and Monday nights of October Bank Holiday in the hotel. Staff very friendly. Rooms comfortable and very clean. Bathroom was newly renovated. Breakfast was very good. We had dinner in the bar and found the food very enjoyable, very genourous servings! If there was any down side, it was only that I found the hotel to be very hot - be sure to wear light clothing in the bar! We didn't make use of the leisure centre, but did go down to check it out. The swimming pool is quite small, not ideal for the experienced swimmer, but excellent for those with children.

Located about half a mile walk to the town center of Killarney. Easy parking. Has a Pool, hot tub, steam shower and sauna. They require a swim cap if you go in the pool; which was a bit odd. Nice pub with live music after 930pm.
We had breakfast included which was standard fare for ireland. Eggs, bacon, sausage, cerial etc. all and all not bad.

Clean & neat but just basic. Location is a bit of walk to town but it's not too bad, it's a nice walk..

This hotel could do more to attend to customer requests. I stayed 3 days and on the first day requested that I be moved to a room whose windows didn't have a view of the hotel garbage. She told me that the hotel was fully booked despite the fact many had not checked in yet. She never followed up with me the following days.
The restaurant staff could have sold me a ton of food & drink had they been by to ask. Instead I had one drink and left as soon as the dinner was done. The cleaning staff left garbage in the bathrooms, not enough towels and the room itself was old and dungy. Lastly, the gym says its open from 5:30a-9:00p. When my wife asked at 7:30a the front desk said it didn't open until 9:00a. When we asked why did the sign said different she proceeded to call someone to open it up for us as if we were causing her an inconvenience.

We stayed two nights in this hotel with two teenage children. Plenty of room; comfortable bedding. Also, nice pool and pub. Only a 15 minute walk to downtown Killarney.
