My friend and I recently accompanied my daughter who was the Newfoundland Rose of Tralee representative at the 2013 festival in August 2013. We stayed at the Grand Hotel and the name suited in perfectly GRAND!! We were at the heart of this beautiful town, with the hospitality of wonderful staff! Dick, the owner actually remembers your name and made us feel like we were regulars in his bar!!! I'll be back!!!

Room Tip: Overlooking Denny St.

Stayed in Grand Hotel in Tralee for 1 night while on short break ,it was so welcoming and had such a great selection of food we decided to stay a second night . The staff are lovely, friendly, helpful and polite. The breakfast was the nicest we have had anywhere,and their scramble sunrise was the best ever.Excellent value for money would have no hesitation in recommending this place to anyone .

I stayed in the Grand Hotel when Kerry were playing in the run up to the All Ireland, so there was a great buzz in the hotel. The rooms were clean and spacious. The food and the service in the bar was first class. Most importantly for me was the courtesy shown at the reception desk by the staff . Nothing was too much trouble and they went out of their way to facilitate my requests. I definitely will be back to stay in this hotel.

We stayed here for one night while passing through. The hotel is beautiful and the room was spacious and nicely decorated. The bathroom was very new and beautiful. The only drawback was that our room was in the front of the hotel on the main street above the restaurant which had outdoor seating and it was very noisy late into the night. There is also no elevator but they will help you up with your luggage. We did eat in the restaurant and it was very good. Also the included breakfast was great.

Room Tip: Ask for one away from the front of the hotel.

Booked that day online for 79 euro for a double room on a Thursday night, lovely early Victorian hotel with original features, friendly and helpful staff. Lots of character, stairs and rooms going off everywhere. There is no lift/ elevator as it is an old building but I believe ground floor rooms are available. Parking is 2 minutes walk away, you get a permit from the hotel for a 20 euro deposit which you get back upon returning the permit. The room was spacious and had a double, a single and a fold up bed also, nice old style furniture, very clean, tea and coffee in room as well as tv. We were at the back of the hotel without a view which was no problem as the room was airy and quiet. The Pikeman restaurant at the hotel was busy and popular, reasonably priced with good bar food fare. Breakfast was included, there were cereals, breads, yoghurt, fruit and juice available at the buffet and tea/coffee and hot food are served at your table including the full Irish, mini grill, eggs cooked however you want and a vegetarian breakfast was available as well. Overall, a gem of a hotel right in the centre of Tralee town and close to all amenities, good service and good value. I would definitely stay there again.

It’s good to read that your experience was a pleasant one. Our location and parking arrangements are well received by all our guests and you are correct in saying that the Hotel is very popular to local customers and our food is very popular with both visiting and local trade. Thank you once again.

The hotel is old and quaint with nice furniture and gorgeous antiques. The staff are pleasant. The decor in the bedroom was mismatched and dated. Our room was quite small. The bathroom toilet squeaked non-stop when it was in use but the shower was fantastic! The street was quiet during the day and very noisy at night until almost 5am. I was woken up with the noise outside and the noise inside. If people passed the bedroom door you could hear them and their conversations. I was also awoken by the people on the floor above us. There seemed to be no sound proofing between the floors and when the occupants crossed their floor it sounded like a stampede. The wifi was awful and cut in and out constantly. We had dinner in the front bar and the food was very good but not fantastic. I was more impressed by the breakfast we had the next morning. There was a great selection of food and the staff serving us were exceptional hosts. There was no elevator however the receptionist offered help with bringing our bags to our rooms. I would return if I got a quieter room.

Room Tip: Try to get a quiet room.

Thank you for your comments on Trip Advisor.
One of the issues with being a town centre hotel is the level of noise from passing traffic and the people on the street, which can impact the quality of sleep that customers at the front of the hotel can experience. Hopefully if you choose to return, please state that you would like a quite room.
