“Great location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 31, 2013

Good value, nice hotel in an excellent central location. Reception staff extremely friendly and welcoming. Comfy bed, no complaints. Free car parking and ticket validated on check out for the whole day up to 11pm! Didn't eat there so can't comment.

This was our third stay in Scotts hotel. On previous visits we found everything to our satisfaction.
On this occasion I am afraid we were disappointed.
We were on a four day visit. Checked in at reception everything went fine.
when we went to our room, it was a standard room with a kitchen attached and the view was of a flat roof
What we had booked was a deluxe suite as a treat for ourselves.
I went down to reception to complain about the room. The receptionist checked the booking and agreed Ihad booked a deluxe suite she said she would check with her supervisor/ manager and would get back to me in the morning.
The following morning I went to the same lady and she told me that the attached kitchen to our room would make up for our deluxe suite.
I told her as we were on half board a kitchen was not very good to us. Her reply was "sorry I can't do anything about it"
We love staying in killarney as it is a delightful place and we will keep coming back but we will never again stay in Scotts hotel.

I can't praise scotts enough. Underground parking, location brilliant bang smack in the centre of the town. Rooms are gorgeous, beds so comfy, showers lovely and hot. The food in the courtyard bar is yummy. Get the shepards pie, its delicious. Love scotts! Can't wait to go bak again,

The location is in the center of everything. It's easy to find, and there's beautiful views on the 4th floor. The breakfast was wonderful. The staff was more than helpful. I loved everything about my stay at the Scotts and would recomment it to any American traveler!

Room Tip: Request the 4th floor. Beautiful mountain views!

We had a splendid weekend in Killarney almost ruined by the food and staff of this appalling establishment. The waiting staff do not speak English as a primary language and bring with them the charm that appears to be a steadfast characteristic of eastern European stoicism and the apparent utter disdain that paying customers deserve. Not only was the food so bad that 90% remained on our plates (roast sirloin of beef - errr camel meat more like) when we advised the waiter that the food was tough and inedible the retort was "no one else seemed to have a problem with the meat". This was not true, the table of 5 across from us made the same comment, only not the the Bulgarian waiter. They had just arrived and were happy just to get out as quickly as possible. When paying for the meal we again raised the issue and were spoken to in a belittling and dismissive manner by the Irish bar manager. This place is a typical large pub, too busy to care about customers. Avoid this place like the plague. Seriously.

Stayed here one night in May whilst touring Ireland with my friend. The Hotel is in a great location, after finding the car park that is, bit tricky but finally found it. We booked a twin room since there was two of us- When we arrived at the room it stunk of cigarette smoke so i rang reception and a lady came up and showed us into another room, which was a double, so we didnt accept this, and then finally we were shown one more room what had a double bed and 2 single beds in which we finally agreed on. The rooms were ok, i wouldnt say they were fantastic but it served its job for the night. Very nice bathrooms though, they seemed to be very trendy unlike the room itself. If you want somewhere to rest your head in a good location then yes this hotel suits!

Make sure you go to the Killarney Grand, excellent night with live music!!!!
