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

We spent 2 nights here last week. Our youngest had a stay in the Bons Hospital which is very close by. 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.

As said in the title of this review, the Brandon hotel is a hub for bus tours. As soon as you'll have parked your car it will be already noticeable that there are more buses resting in the hotel's car park than cars. This, in itself, is not a problem. The problem is that since the hotel's bread and butter... More

The receptionist was helpful and of a cheery disposition. A lot of hotels can't pull that off and it is an automatic fail if you are greeted upon arrival with indifference.Nothing seemed to be a problem and if we had any kind of issue she was eager to have it resolved. Its location is very central. The restaurant staff seem... More
