“Excellent hotel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 9, 2014

I stay in around 40 hotels every year and I have to say this is one of the most beautifully decorated hotels I have ever stayed in. The rooms are outstanding. Lovely comfortable beds, warm showers and pure luxury. I needed to be about 50 miles from this hotel but I like this hotel so much, I decided it was worth staying here and getting up an hour earlier the next morning. The restaurant food was good, this time I was still full from a late lunch so I decided to just have a starter. I chose a Mediterranean tapas and it was very good and really quite filling. So this hotel is excellent, very reasonably priced and I will immediately start looking for an excuse to stay there again. If I was forced to come up with a negative I would have to say it would benefit from an elevator.

Stayed here for two nights recently and really enjoyed ot. Owner and indeed all staff are very friendly. The rooms are bright, spacious and very comfortable. Food is excelent also. The general decor - woodwork, paintings etc make it a very pleasant hotel. A great place to base yourseld if touring the Ring etc.

Lovely roadside boutique hotel, great location in the heart of Killorglin. Parking is either outside on the road or in the nearby public car park. The rooms vary in size but all are very modern with top class furnishings. The bathrooms are as good as any in 5 star hotels, some with full baths. The bar area is less modernized but very much in keeping with the area and the food is really good and served with great humour. The dining area has lovely carved tables. Overall the attention to detail makes this hotel stand out as one of the best in its price range in Ireland.
The hotel has wifi but it wasn't working while we were there.

Room Tip: All the rooms are different in size but the furnishings are the same. I liked the rooms overlooking...

We had a most wonderful stay at the Bianconi to see in the new year
I have stayed here a few times before and we were treated with the same famous hospitality as always.
Since my last visit the rooms have been extensively updated to a very high standard
A lovely stay and thanks to Rick and Ray for your warmth and terrific service

Just stayed one night. It's a few years since i last stayed here. impressed with the lovely refurbished rooms. Good breakfast with freshly baked bread and real orange juice. Only negative was warm shower. Would have preferred hotter water, but otherwise very good.
