Had to stay here for work. Staff very nice. Were kind enough to feed me even though I arrived just after the restaurant had closed. If not for that, I'm afraid it would be a 2 star. This hotel is huge and feels like it badly needs a facelift. Most of the decor feels quite dated. In the morning, there... More

We booked a family room and were very unhappy with the standard and quality of the room (320). When we arrived the chairs in the room had a broken arm and the upolstery was ripped, handles missing off drawers, phone socket was broken, no hairdryer, grubby paintwork, drawer fell apart when we opened it and the toilet roll holder was...

Friendly staff. No general manager to be seen, only bar manager. No kids menu. No half portions. Hotel in bad need of a face lift. Its such a shame for a hotel thats in such a central location and used to be the place to stay and dine in tralee before.

Stayed a night in the Brandon on a recent mini break in Ireland. The Brandon is in a great location in the center of Tralee.The free car park adjoining the hotel, makes for convenient transit of luggage from car to hotel (something that is by no means guaranteed in other city center establishments). We rented two rooms that were functional... More

Like the title says....it was a good nights sleep and the location is fine away from the downtown area but within walking distance. The beds were ok, and the room good. Lobby is really nice but the room was in the older part of the hotel. The breakfast included was a nice buffet, one of the better ones I got... More

Stayed here over bank holiday weekend at short notice. I was given a room in the old part - they still use old fashioned room keys! The decor was also old fashioned - worn pattered carpet on the stairs and corridors, dark stained furniture and doors making the place dark and depressing. The room was a decent size but the... More

This hotel has seen better days. Reception area is deceptive, as it is a wonderful front to a shabby exterior. Bar tables all sticky, bedrooms lacklustre and considering it was the most expensive place we stayed in the whole of Ireland, it was the worst. Would not recommend this place. Pity.
