Nice enough place, great location, pleasant staff.... only a few quibbles, which may or may not matter to you: • They only have internet in the lobby. Not even in the pub. • Irish breakfasts are bountiful but they only serve instant coffee. I'm a tea drinker, so I didn't care, but some of my colleagues sure did. • Check-out... More

Of all the hotels we stayed in over our five week trip across September, this was the worst. Admittedly we did not have the problems listed by others in mid Sept 2013 but everything about the place suggested old and broken. It must be awful to work there. None of the staff were interested. Breakfast was located in a makeshift... More

We had great hopes for our four night stay in this hotel but were left sorely disappointed We experienced a list of problems during our stay. Firstly the strip light in the bathroom did not work and flickered so badly that it was disorientating - eventually the hotel "sorted it" by removing the faulty strip lighting leaving us with limited...

We got this hotel at a bargain rate, and for what we paid it was good value. It's in a great location in the centre of Tralee town, and has limited free parking. The room was large and clean, but the doors of the other rooms on the corridor banged very loudly on closing. The reception staff were helpful, but... More

As a tourist guide with large groups I found the reception very helpful and organised. Problems of my guests where dealt with promptly. The reception and lobby looked great but once you enter the upper floor area you will notice that the place has had much better times. It is well past its best before date but ..clean,,and therefore not... More

Went with a group . Had choice of bar or restaurant area alongside bar. Good choice of food. Shown to table promptly by a waiter. Of those serving he seemed the only one with experience. I choose a steak and before I could say my preference waitress said "I presume you want it well done". Maybe I looked like a... More
