This hotel is a real mixed bag, I read the reviews before we went there and have seen the hotels response stating they are a budget hotel with basic facilities so to be honest I wasn't expecting much, just a place to bed down for two nights with the kids on a short break. This hotel has some real good... More

The building itself is deceiving as when you step inside the staff(must have had exceptional training!!!) the welcome and the beautiful food is all 5 star.... More

Quality wise, I equate the hotel with a Super 8 or Days Inn in the US, 2 star quality. Only place to access wi-fi was in the lobby, and then had to wait until someone would leave so... More

We traveled around Kerry for a week and stayed in a couple of different hotels over the few days from lower end to high end. This was my favorite and my son still talks about it. The rooms were very comfortable and the staff very friendly especially to children when looking for a cordial at the restaurant bar. Great value... More
