We have just come back from a stay in this hotel. This was not our first visit, having stayed here and in the Brehon on a number of occasions before. We got a great offer through the local Credit Union for 4nights, Sun to Thurs, for €145pp. I emailed the hotel a month before our stay, to request one of the refurbished rooms, as I had read about them on TA. They replied saying they would do their best, but couldn' guarantee it. We arrived on Sunday 24th Feb and check in was quick and friendly. We were allocated a room on the 5th floor, room 544, to get to this room, we had to pass two lifts and negotiate two long corridors. I was thinking this room better be good. When we eventually got there it was a real disappointment. It was one of the old rooms, with the wall behind the bed painted royal blue! badly painted at that, and a grubby looking bedcover. We went straight back to reception and complained. We were then allocated a refurbished room on the second floor. This was a lovely room, immaculate clean and comfortable. Why they couldn't have just given us that room in the first place, I don't know! especially when we had requested it. Anyway we had a very nice stay. The food was excellent, the staff were excellent, the pool and facilities were also excellent. I loved the fact that the hotel was not overheated, which made our stay very comfortable.
We had music each night in the ballroom, which we enjoyed, although there was no music in the bar. Overall the Gleneagle is a great value hotel, provided you get the right room. We had great weather for the week and we enjoyed the stroll into Killarney town each day. We will certainly stay here again.
