A lovely Hotel which was easily accessible, quiet, friendly and a short drive to Killarney races.
Location and friendleness of the staff
the noise from outside my room (air conditioning?) was loud unless you shut the window but it quiened down after midnight.
staff were very flexible and willing to help, the wait for us to have dinner even when we arrived later than expected
I liked the interior and exterior of the hotel. The rooms were very nice and clean
There was noise form the disco on the first nigth that we were not warned aobut. We coudl hear toilets flusing and doors closing in our rooms and were shocked at this. We thought it would be sound proof. There was no hot water for msot of our stay!!The hotel is very expensive for what you get.
The staff at the hotel are fabulous and are among the best that I have met. They really look after you and are very welcoming and friendly. Additionally the food is very very good. I would definitely stay here again .
Friendly Staff, right on the main street clean rooms budget price
It was a nice quiet hotel whose staff were mainly friendly and quite helpful.
It was strange that the disabled rooms were on the second floor. Somewhat confusing how they would be evacuated in a fire when use of the lift would not be allowed. The reception staff seemingly had to multi-task at other jobs meaning you had to go to the bar/restaurant to locate them.
The fact that they served meals as no one else in town did. Very appealing lobby and entrance. Good staff.
No pelmets on the curtains meant the sun still snuck in. A queen size bed is preferable to the double.
Very Good hotel. Good facilities. Staff friendly. Manager very nice.
No parking. Have a free car park about 5 mins walk from hotel. Only room for 3 cars on street outside hotel. Our car got badly damaged outside hotel. Not a place to stay if your car is important to you. Other than that very good hotel.
The staff was very friendly and made us free welcome.
There was no car parking at all only street parking which was always full
Was friendly helpful and convient to everything
Friendly staff & good service, the lovely irish breakfast
only 8 km to Kerry airport, easy to catch up flight early morning of next day, especially to return a rental car at Kerry airport
food was nice.
the music from the pub/club was very loud in the bedrooms. stayed here twice nd it was the same both times.
