“Comfort and value”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 29, 2013 via mobile

I stayed in the hotel recently with my wife, we found the stay to be enjoyable although the hotel was over run by children everywhere. The hotel provides a kids club seems parents think that everyone but themselves should look after them for them, anyone looking to relax should avoid the weekend and chose a week day trip to unwind. The hotel is totally under staffed with only one receptionist at a very busy time with so many check ins but Dolores managed so well and was so polite and helpful she honestly couldn't have done enough for us. The hotel is difficult enough to find mainly because of a lack of a sign at the main entrance, you've driven past before you know where you are Over all a nice clean hotel dental to town and ideal as a base for a break away

didn't really take advantage of all services but got 3 good breakfasts the room was very good and cant knock it atall. its modern clean and ideal for a short break, Tralee itself is gt for walking, its a small town and the square was our favourite place to stop, chill eta and drink.

Room Tip: away from any parties eg weddings

Very clean, newer hotel. Very good rate and walk-able to pubs and restaurants. Breakfast was very good and well-managed. I was travelling with friends and there were many families there with small children. Seemed like the management made an effort to keep the families/children in one part of the restaurant (but still right next to the buffet) and the people without children in an abutting section (also right next to the buffet.) I found that to be a thoughtful "win-win" approach. They also have a sign up in the elevator using a stop light motif to show the best times to go to breakfast (7am - 8am, not crowded, green light, 8am - 9am, more crowded, yellow light, 9am - 10am, very crowded, red light.) That is probably obvious to most travelers but it is nice to have it shown so directly and cleverly. To me this indicates that this is a well-managed property.

Ideally located with good parking facilities. The hotel rooms are spotless and well equipped. The breakfast is lovely and the service of the breakfast staff excellent. Overall the only downfall would be the service in the bar, which is extremely slow.

There are two things that annoy me about this restaurant.....firstly the 10oz steak was actually a 6oz at best and secondly a medium cooked steak should not be dry as a bone. Should have gone down the town as I had planned.
