We stayed at The Brandon for two nights on our travels. The hotel is situated just off the town centre so a great place to explore from. The entrance is large and quite impressive and even if there are lots of people around it never feels very busy. The staff are extremely pleasant and helpful. Our twin room was a... More

hotel was spotless and room was clean, staff were friendly but there was no atmosphere in the lounge bar, no entertainment in the hotel which wouldn't entice you to stay in the bar in the evening, the breakfast was very poor so we decided not to take a chance on the bar food. If entertainment was laid on at night... More

Excellent clean hotel with a great bar, would return again for sure! We were warmly welcomed by the lovely girl at the front desk, who couldn't have been nicer. Room was very comfortable; warm and very quiet. The breakfast and evening meals were fantastic and I cannot say enough about all the staff. They could not have been more helpful.... More

The Brandon is a very old hotel sadly in need of a makeover. There is not even a respectable trolley to transport luggage in from the parking lot in back of the building. My breakfast egg came with pieces of shell, so I can't even applaud the breakfast. I booked this hotel because of the pool, hot tub and sauna,... More

We stayed in this hotel on a recent visit and to say we were dissapointed would not be unfair. The Hotel badly needs a makeover. I was going to give this place a 2 star rating but I have given it an extra one for an excellent breakfast.

Service was great, however hotel needs a serious upgrade. Room was quite hot, no way to adjust room temperature. Rooms were small, but that is ok most European hotels are. Rugs needed to cleaned or replaced,(bit of a smell. Service was good, location was ok. Tralee is a big city not the quaint village you want for tourism
