Had heard so many good reports about Kellys we just had to go to this famous hotel. We heard about the friendly welcome but there was nothing particularly friendly about reception. We got our key and proceeded to our room. The room was a good size but was very dated. There was no tea/coffee making facility, the TV was very small and the reception not good with much interference. The shower was old and kept changing from cold to hot. Apart from the Beaches Restaurant which was first class, nice staff and excellent food, the rest of the hotel was like a Butlins holiday camp with children running everywhere, especially in the Ivy Room which was very basic. The pool appeared quite small and dark. The Spa area looked nice but the prices were astronomical. To their credit the sheets and towels were changed every day and toiletries were supplied as one would expect of a 4 star hotel. My impression is that Kellys made its name about 30 years ago and has acquired an nostalgic following who feel it is a home from home. I found it well below what I would expect and definitely overpriced. Most suited to families.
