“Autumn Break”
Reviewed 3 November 2013

We stayed for 3 nights on a Bed and Breakfast and one dinner bases and were very pleased with our overall experience. It was great value for money. Our room number 406 was very nice and comfortable. The location is great within easy walking distance of shops, pubs and restaurants. Parking and internet is free. Food was very nice and service was good. I would stay here again.

Room Tip: Room on the 4th floor nice and quiet.

My wife and I have been staying at Scotts Hotel for the past years. We usually do down for the Killarney Races in either May or July. This year we headed down in May and stayed for three days of the races. We always leave our car in the hotel carpark and get a taxi out to the races.
It rained for most of the three days but we didn't need to use our car as the hotel is centrally located and as usual we booked a taxi for the races.As we were about to leave the car park having checked out of the hotel we noticed a white stain on the passenger door,looking up we discovered water leaking from the roof of the car park. We thought the mark would clean off when dry so we headed for home. The following day I tried again but had little success. I decided to take the car to the main Renault garage. They could not remove the mark and stated that the passenger side would have to be resprayed. They stated that the stain was probably caused by some corrosive substance in the water that leaked from the roof. I contacted the management at Scotts Hotel and sent on an estimate of the damage together with photos of the damage. Despite numerous calls to the manager and staff at the hotel no response was forthcoming. I think its fair to say that they did not want to know. This damage occurred while my car was parked in their carpark and therefore they should be prepared to accept responsible for the damage caused. As a loyal customer of the hotel for a long number of years this type of treatment is disappointing to say the least.Be careful where you park at Scotts carpark. You have been warned !!

Room Tip: Rear roomsbest for good nights sleep.

This hotel is right in the middle of the city centre on Main street. This comes with a price. It was very noisy in the night and the room was too warm at night and we couldnt leave the windows open since it was a busy street. Everything is walkable from here in the centre. Killarney National park is less than 5min drive. The breakfast was not the best but sufficient to get you going for the morning. The reception staffs were very friendly and helped us with everything. We had to leave one morning very early and they arranged a continental breakfast for us which was very nice.

Spent two nights. Checkin fine, room adequate and free wifi. Good location in middle of town. Ate at restaurant and had a bad experience with tough meat! I didn't make a fuss and waitress very apologetic but it would have been nice to see meal refunded but they did refund the wine.

Despite this, I class this older hotel as upper 3 star and in a very touristy type town it serves the purpose.

This was a nice hotel from when we entered. Room was very nice BUT bed was rock hard and a number of people on the tour had sore backs the next day. No air-conditioning in rooms and no in-room safe.
Great water pressure in shower.
This could have been a pleasant stay. There is pub attached to the hotel which had nice meals and a good range of beers. Location was quite convenient to walking the main steets of town.

Pity I'll remember for the wrong reasons

The only redeeming thing about this hotel are the staff. They are extremely helpful and friendly especially the gril on reception.
Thats the only positive about this hotel.You enter the huge cavernous reception without an ounce of personality or ambiance.Long rambling nondescript corridors to equally bland rooms.To add insult to injury the hygiene in these bedrooms is way way below par.I would not recommend this hotel to anyone and shocked to find an establishment like this in a town that prides itself on its tourism!

There are pros and cons to being centrally located. We enjoyed the ease of walking to local restaurants, but the noise from the late-night crowd was annoying (and our room wasn’t even in the front of the hotel) Good breakfasts, including cooked-to-order eggs got the day off to a good start.

Room Tip: rooms in the back (overlooking parking lot) are quieter, especially on weekend nights
