This hotel is definately 3 star but probably much better than that. Great value for money. I stayed on B&B basis for €65. The breakfast was great. Lots of Parking in secure car park. The gym/leisure centre was included but i didnt have time to visit so i cant comment. Staff were very friendly and helpful. No complaints.

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

I stayed at this hotel with my wife and daughter between 31 October 2013 and 4 November 2013 when we visited Tralee for a family reunion.

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

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.
