The service was poor. Waitress gave us two menus for six of us, and it was tough to get her to come back for our order. The food was okay, but the place itself was old, dirty, and not kept up at all. The value was okay. Nothing was too over-priced. I went towards the lobby of the hotel to... More

Virtually all hotels that I've stayed at in Ireland have great, friendly, professional staff. This one doesn't I'm afraid. Relating the full horrific experience here with this hotel and its companion in Waterville (Lake Hotel) would take too long and may bore readers. All I would advise is not to stay in either.

Stopped in for lunch on our driving tour of the Ring of Kerry. Sadly this establishment, which should be thriving on summer tourism, did not know how to treat its customers. Indifferent staff and slow service. Can't complain about the portion sizes of the food, but almost felt unwelcome to be there eating the food.

The rooms have badly stained carpets also but are spacious for a family. The dining room for breakfast was filthy. Dirty tables, cutlery. A real disgrace! I... More

While the room was clean it was dated and the long winding corridors were dark and musty. The shower could not be used as it was a hand held item with no curtain. I am ashamed to say this is not suitable for visitors to Ireland and it was the worst hotel we ever stayed in anywhere. Every other hotel... More
