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.

Booked in here with partner and 2 children for 4 night summer break! Without a doubt this is the dirtiest hotel I have ever stayed in. The corridoors are filthy with stained carpets. 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

Where do I start with this review! Spent a night here recently and was glad to be leaving. This hotel was booked as part of a golf package so had no choice but to stay here. This hotel is old, dirty, lacks any redeeming feature. Conditions were so bad that we didn't eat breakfast here but went to a cafe... More

I was very surprised by Trish's review. We had an excellent deal that included both dinner and breakfast. The seafood chowder was amazing and the portions were large. The breakfast was in the front atrium and was very pleasant (continental plus full Irish Breakfast). The staff was incredibly friendly and accommodating. We had a room on the 3rd floor facing...

Had a lovely 2 day break in Waterville. Best value you can get for this location - facing the seaside, on the Ring of Kerry. Rooms were huge and very clean,comfy beds. Bathroom spotless and functional. Watching the sunset out of our window is one of my permanent memories from this holiday. Breakfast was ok, dinner was a main course... More
