Great location any has great potential but for those planning a weekend in this hotel. Note the leisure centre closes early on Saturdays and Sunday's inclusive. So if you are not in and out by 5. 30.pm stay in your room. Not great for a hotel to close so early.

There is good reason the Brandon rates 12 of 14 local hotels. Here's the rundown: no HVAC or room thermostats (night was 25+ celsius), no secure doorlocks, no wi-fi, no flat screen TV, no clock-radio, cracked paint in bathroom and no tissues. Our group was told no porter service was available upon check-out. The food was bland from a menu... More

The Brandon Hotel offers free wifi throughout the property including guest rooms, all bedrooms have flat screen televisions, double barrel locks and porterage service upon request.

Payed a visit to the restaurant here for lunch over the weekend and was very impressed. Even though the hotel was quite busy the staff are obviously used to working under pressure and trained to a very high level. There was a storm outside and even the short walk from the car park across the road was a challenge.The food... More

Had a nice at the Brandon Hotel and would recommend it for a weekend in Tralee. Staff are friendly and the room clean and tidy. The breakfast was well cooked and enjoyable. We also enjoyed the facilities at the leisure centre. The Brandon Hotel is very handy for walking into town also.
