Stayed here twice in the last couple of months. The rooms are clean, warm and bed linen comfortable. The bar menu is limited and breakfast is Buffett style which can be hit and miss. There is always fresh fruit and and a willingness of the staff to grant any additional requests. however the staff are extremely friendly and very accommodating.... More

I stayed in this hotel for one night room only . There was something nice about the room though it wasn't the most modern. It had a certain elegance about it and the street view below was quite nice. I ate dinner in the bar. Service was friendly and efficient though it was late on a Sunday evening. There wasn't... More

Negatives- old fashioned room and poor tv channels. Breakfast. Positive- location in town is excellent. Some staff friendly. Would stay here again if we had too but would probably ask for a different room.

Stayed here for one night. Staff pleasant and good sense of humour. The bedrooms are a bit dated and small by modern standards but were clean. Good food and service in the restaurant. Would stay there again

I stayed here for two nights, the location is good for the town. The rooms were comfortable but a bit out dated. It was nice to have an old fashioned key and a bath in the room. On the first night the food was not good, probably because the hotel was so busy. The second night the food was much... More

This hotel is caught up in the eighties, it is clean and tidy, but old fashioned furniture and telly ETC let it down. There were a lot of senior citizen bus tours staying there and there was a distinct lack of atmosphere. In summary, it was ok for a business stay but I would not be rushing back to this... More

Our French tour chose this hotel for us. We spent 2 nights there. It is well located but the rooms are dated. the picture above shows a "newish" place, but it is not. It is quite ancient inside, actually the only hotel in Ireland we stayed at that still uses keys instead of cards. The room gave on the main... More

The hotel didn't care about our needs, we were put in a room in the back meant for three but we were four. In addition to being cramped there was an extractor fan outside and the room was stuffy, so we were forced to open the window and suffer! In conclusion, avoid it if you're in a coach tour.

I stayed in this hotel for one night, passing through Tralee. It was good value for money overall but I wouldn't go back. The facade of the hotel is totally deceptive for a start - shiny and modern. Inside it is dark and gloomy. Our room was over the kitchen extractors so constant humming. The furniture was very old as... More

I originally booked one night for one and got an excellent rate and then I booked another night in what was a very simple process.
