“A very nice hotel with very nice staff”
Reviewed 25 November 2012 via mobile

The positives: Great parking, good location, and very friendly and welcoming staff. The rooms were spacious and were comfortably warm on a cold November's day. Breakfast menu and buffet offered excellent choice.

The negatives: Although the hotel advertises free wifi, connection was painstakingly slow and often didn't work. The bar food wasn't great. The rooms could do with with an update (ie the television was clearly very old and the remote control was held together with heavy duty duct tape). Spa treatments in the hotel were relatively over-priced.

Overall a generally very nice hotel staffed by very nice people.

Stayed November 2012, travelled as a couple

My wife and I stayed in this hotel for a peaceful romantic couple of days in October and we both have to say it was fantastic. The management and staff were absolutely out of this world and made our stay most enjoyable, to this we both wish to say thank you. Would most certainly recommend it as a place to be placed top of the priority list as where to stay in Killarney. Go Raibh Mile Maith Agaibh Go Leir.

Room Tip: No tips as we could find nothing wrong with this hotel.

This was a nice hotel overall. Room was nice though furnished with old furniture. Customer service was friendly and helpful. But the highlight was the restaurant. Food was amazing!!! Would highly recommend having dinner here.

Had a recent weekend break here. Lovely decent size room and bathroom, shame no fridge. Breakfast was very gd - made to order, menu for evening a bit limited. little things like charging for internet and "loaning" out newspapers should be done away with.Overall very nice and a pleasant 10min walk into the town.
Ps: Walls are quite paper thin!

Have stayed in killarney hundreds of times so wanted to try somewhere new. Chose this cause it was cheap and we booked very last minute. Quite easy to find and ample parking. First impressions of the outside thought it looked very nice. Reception area was lovely and girl on reception was very nice. We were bout 40 mins early for check-in so she told us to take a seat, got a bit restless and thought we would check out the bar. Wasn't open and this was nearly half 1, (opening times on sunday is 12.30) we were given codes for wifi. Don't bother it works for bout 2 mins and cudnt get it bak for rest of the day! Bar finally opened and all I can say is mehhhhhh because that's what it was like. It was very outdated. And the worst part of all was that even tho we were first in the barman rushed over to serve an older couple who came in after us. Got the impression it was because we were a young couple and there most used to older clientele. Eventually we were able to check in. Rooms also outdated but bed was great. Wouldn't stay again as its a bit far out for us and not our cup of tea. But no major problems

Stayed here for one night in November. Lovely hotel, great reception, bar and restaurant staff. Free wifi, which is always a plus. Great selection for breakfast. Highly recommended and will return.

One of the most welcoming hotels I have visited and very reasonable B+B rates.
