We are just back from a wonderful stay at the hotel. From the moment we entered to the moment we left we had a wonderful experience. The staff were extremely friendly and a lovely homely atmosphere was created. The room was lovely and plenty big enough to fit myself, husband and three children. The grounds of the hotel are beautiful... More

I literally can't put into words how beautiful this hotel is! From our arrival to departure we were overwhelmed by the amazing service provided! I couldn't recommend this hotel anymore! We were given a complimentary glass of champagne as it was our friends birthday, such a lovely touch and it made the evening really special! All the staff were so... More

I used this hotel only last week but have used it on many ocassions previously for both business and leisure with family. From the minute you arrive you are welcomed by highly professional employees which is consistent throughout this establishment. Nice bedrooms, good food and great service. You will go far in Ireland to find a better 4 star establishment.

This is the nicest hotel to stay in in Tralee, I have stayed in 3 of the hotels in Tralee. The rooms are lovely spacious and spotlessly clean. The staff are warm and welcoming. The breakfast was very good and the service was excellent. One negative, I felt the Spa receptionist a bit brusque and inattentive but all in all... More

We stayed one night in the hotel after travelling up from Waterford. Our room was quite large as was the bathroom. Our room overlooked the garden which was pleasant despite the building work. The breakfast was good and got top marks for being hot. We didn't dine in the evening but the menu looked good. The hotel was well signposted... More
