whilst the hotel is in a remote part of Tralee the scenery in the area is on a par with some of the loveliest countrysides of Britain and is ideal for a quiet relaxing base. the staff are friendly efficient and cannot be faulted. while the menu is limited the food on offer is high quality overall nothing that would...

This is a fantastic hotel. We were part of a Caledonian Bus tour group and were in room 145 . Fabulous room . Well decorated and beds changed daily . Food was fine and staff were amongst the best I have ever came across . This hotel and it's staff were faultless.

Went with a Caledonian bus tour and had an excellent break. Room on the ground floor was very clean and comfortable . Food was very good and restaurant staff were so well organised that service ran like clockwork - well done to all ! I would certainly recommend this hotel .

Went to Ireland on a bus tour. Stayed here and it was in a good location and value. Excellent staff, extremely honest people. I had left something in the hotel, they found it and mailed it to me afterwards.

Let me start off by saying some comments below about how bad this hotel is, are misleading. I got a great deal for a night with Breakfast so my expectations weren't very high going in. As I mentioned, I wasn't expecting much but was I shocked when I got to my room. I was on the ground floor. There was... More

We booked a coach holiday in early August with the "Ryan air" of coach holidays, Caledonian Coaches. This hotel is not within easy reach of Tralee other than by taxi. It is situated on a main road with the a rather off putting sign on the opposite side of the road informing you of the number of deaths on this... More

We had a lovely stay here recently and found the staff friendly and efficient. I describe it as an hotel with two appearances because the ground floor is absolutely lovely 4 or 5 star really. (see photos) The bedrooms on this floor are beautiful too with walk in showers and fully re-fitted. I am sure the hotel is slowly being... More
