“An adequate hotel”
Reviewed 17 July 2014 via mobile

I recently visited this hotel during a golf trip. The room was clean, though the bedroom needed some updating, especially the carpeting. The bathroom seemed to be in the middle of an update, but what had been remodeled was nice. We only ate at the restaurant one day because the normal opening time was 8am and our tee times required us to leave earlier than that. The one day we did have breakfast, we coat-tailed a tour group that got a special early seating. We were only able to partake of cold items in the time we had.

In general, the staff was excellent, though when I inquired at the front desk why it was necessary to get a new wi-fi password every 12 hours for each device I was essentially told I was a complainer and that I should be thankful I didn't have to pay for the service. He must have been having a bad day.

Location of this hotel is one of the high points - a short walk into town and just outside the Ring of Kerry and National Park. The comfort was okay, and the service was good. Staff helped us get a fan since our visit was during a "heat wave" and there is no air conditioning because it is not usually needed. Food was average to good.

The most annoying thing about this hotel is the WiFi. You must get both a user name and a password, per device, every 12 hours. It can be maddening.
The staff, however, make up for everything as they are most courteous and helpful.
Breakfast was fine and the location is good...a 15 minute stroll or a €5 taxi ride into town.
Constant traffic noise made it difficult to sleep

Stayed on a 2 night and one dinner package. Room was nice. A little dated ie shower in bathtub. Big clunky TV. Needs a new bit of carpet in worst way. but clean and comfortable non the less.
Bar was nice but quiet. Pint of Guinness was excellent. Great barman.
Food in restaurant was first class. Staff are friendly. We were well taken care of by Maribel. Breakfast was 5 star qaulity. If you are sightseeing in killarney it's great for food and lodgings. A perfect base 10 minute walk into town.

Killarney is stuffed with hotels, many very overpriced. In my experience of staying in the town over the years, this is one of the better value ones. Its quite a basic, no frills place, but it is very clean and comfortable, with good sized rooms. The staff are nice and helpful. I booked in July, when prices tend to get very steep in Killarney, but it was very reasonable by local standards. The hotel is located about 10 minutes walk from the town on one side, and about 15 minutes from Muckross House and gardens to the south. The hotel is also quiet, a good distance from the generally tacky pubs of the town centre.

Myself and a business partner stayed here while on business in cork and Kerry and foound this hotel to be a nice stay. Staff were pleasant on reception and in the bar. The beds were comfortable but there was no sockets beside the beds which was a downer for me, as I like to charge my phone. Also there was no bottled water in the room which I think is important and a welcome touch. I also had no access to a cash machine at this hotel. I had to go to another hotel to get cash or go into town.
