“excellent family Location”
Reviewed May 12, 2013

We stayed in a golf lodge from the 4th to the 11th of May in lodge 40,with a spectacular lake view. The lodge was very spacious with two very large bedrooms, three bathrooms, kitchen and living area. The kitchen had everything you needed if you were cooking, all the utensils and ware from the hotel. There was plenty of towels in Lodge and lovely clean linen. There is a lovely green in front of the lodges for the kids to play and it is very safe.
Just as well we had the leisure centre for the kids as the weather was very poor for the week, the staff here were more than helpful and supplied towels for use. It had a separate kids section which was ideal.
The evening meal in the hotel was lovely with the most amazing views, it was a set menu for 25 euro for a five course meal including a beverage. The menu changed everynight which was great.
Breakfast is amazing value for 6 euro per adult and 3.50 euro per child, everything from fruit ,to full Irish breakfast.
Nightly entertainment was great with music everynight and bar staff were very helpful.
Staff at reception were more than helpful, i required a doctor for my child and they gave me all the directions and details i needed.
All in all it is a fantastic family friendly hotel with views of the lake , walking paths bring the bikes
and a great atmosphere.

I recently enjoyed a five-day break with 12 friends in the lovely Castlerosse Hotel and as per previous visits we had a brilliant time. Danny, Moya and all the staff went out of their way to make sure we had a wonderful time in spite of the weather! The rooms were lovely- most comfortable and spotless. The dining room - with its beautiful views of the lakes and mountains of Killarney - served delicious wholesome food which we really enjoyed. The entertainment at night was much appreciated by us all. I would thoroughly recommend the Castlerosse to any age group but especially to us over 55's!!

Room Tip: Rooms on the ground floor are very convenient for golfers and swimmers

We have visited the Castlerosse for 8 years now with our children and have just enjoyed another lovely visit. The family room for 5 was perfect and comfortable. We all enjoyed every meal and we found the service to be attentive and helpful. We found the bar's offer of a free jug of cordial for the children great, while we enjoyed a pre-dinner drink.
All in all a great family hotel.

My wife and I got married in the Castlerosse on the 7th of September 2012. Michael and all the staff were superb and took excellent care of us and our guests. The wedding room looked amazing and the views of the lake from the hotel are stunning. Food and service were top class - the beef was incredible! There is a real family atmosphere which we loved and the staff always seemed willing to do a bit extra for us. Our guests were very complimentary of the hotel. Value for money was exceptional and we are looking forward to going back soon for some chowder and that incredible beef.

Room Tip: The golf lodges are superb. Some of them have great views of the lake.

I was surprised to see this hotel only 27 of 39 in the area. We have had two great Easters here and find the location absolutely brilliant. We pay extra for lake view room, get up and run or cycle on the tracks each morning without needing to go near any traffic and we always get close to the deer herds, heron and other fauna.

We come back to enjoy a solid traditional breakfast, again with stunning views out.
As the day unfolds we also use the pool and the gym and go back out on the tracks to walk down to the town, all traffic free. Idyllic. Very safe to allow the kids some freedom to roam and use the facilities.

The only down side I would mention is that the evening meal choices for kids are rather repetitive and we are not talking fine dining for the adults, so I think this could be sharpened up. But we mostly enjoyed the food and the roasts and fish options were very secure every night.

The rooms we had on the wing facing the golf were a good size, all with a double and single bed, table and chairs, lots of storage and generous bathroom space. Cleanliness in the room was fine, but I think public space carpet areas need more attention.

Staff are very friendly, but uneven in waiter skills. One guy was absolutely prefect, knew what each of us (9 ppl ) had ordered and brought it to us, which contrasted with the girl who muddled just about everything. A training issue perhaps?

Overall I agree with the reviewer who said with some polish this place could be a real gem. Managers need to take note!
