We stayed here for two nights because we wanted to use it as a base for local travel to the Ring of Kerry and the Dingle Peninsula. I'm sure it would be a great place to come for a longer time for a relaxing holiday.
The hotel is in a beautiful location next to the lake and is surrounded by trees and lawns. You reach the hotel by driving down a long driveway and so it's far enough from the road to ensure that it's quiet and peaceful. Most of the rooms face the lake as do the restaurant, bar and lounge areas.
I'm not sure how old the hotel is but it must have been built in a time when they valued comfort and style. It has an elegant feel.
Our room had a cable internet connection but the reception was slow and unreliable. There was good WiFi reception in the lounge areas near the hotel entrance.
We had a buffet breakfast in the restaurant on both days. On one night we had dinner in the restaurant and on the other night we had a drink in the bar followed by a meal. The service in the restaurant was better than in the bar.
We found the staff at reception very helpful with advice on planning our daily trips.
I can thoroughly recommend this hotel.
