“Great location. Poor choice for rest.”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 13, 2013 via mobile

This hotel is in the perfect spot to explore the city. It has a modern theme which is fun.
Pros: Location, free parking, breakfast was good.
Cons: The free parking is up the street at their sister hotel. No help available with bags that you have to double park to drop off. The room was showing quite a bit of wear. There were many things broke or that had bee raised poorly like the sink basin itself. The big con is this hotel backs up to two bars that are LOUD all night.

So if you are gong out to party stay here. Otherwise look elsewhere.

Stayed April 2013, traveled with family

Dear Imperial_Eli,

Many thanks for your review on our hotel, The Ross. I am so very sorry that The Ross didnt live up to your expectations. If you would not mind contacting me directly to specifically advise what was exactly broken, that would be very helpful to us.
Thanks again for your honest review. I really hope overall you enjoyed Killarney and Kerry.

I stayed at The Ross hotel for one night as part of a hen party. The hotel is beautiful, the decor is modern but cosy and comfortable. The room was huge as was the bathroom. The bed was super comfortable and the towels were a proper size for real sized people. The staff were lovely and very helpful. My only two tiny issues were 1. breakfast finished at 10am on Saturday morning (a little early for me) and 2. I felt the fruit selection at breakfast was poor.
Afternoon tea is also a must while your there.....

I stayed here recently on a girls break away and had an excellent experience. The hotel is right in the heart of Killarney town so the location is ideal. Have absolutely no complaints to make, everything was top class. The food was excellent, delicious breakfast made to order which was a lovely touch. The afternoon tea and dinner were also brilliant. Lovely bright, large and clean rooms. I think what really made our stay so good was the staff. They went out of their way to look after us all weekend and really showed that personal touch that can be so lacking in other hotels. They are a credit to the hotel. Cant wait to return!

Beautiful hotel!! So clean and well maintained! The rooms were beautiful, and had the feel of a very high priced Manhattan room, but at a very reasonable price. We were so pleasantly surprised! It is located right in downtown Killarney, within walking distance to every thing. We loved it.

Stayed recently at this hotel and was delighted with all aspects of my stay. On entering the hotel we were greeted by a very friendly receptionist who checked us in quickly to our very comfortable room, (not too sure about colour scheme in our room).
The bar area and dining area downstairs are wonderfully presented and automatically enticed us to have a drink and some food as it was lunchtime. The choice on the menu was fantastic and the food itself was equally good.We then were able to explore the town very easily as there is no need to drive when staying at this hotel.We did'nt eat dinner as we had such a great lunch but if the breakfast is anything to go by I will definately do so on my next visit. The breakfast was cooked to order and like the bar menu extensive. It was served again by very friendly staff and was one of the best Irish breakfasts I have ever had.
I would certainly recommend this hotel if you like a relaxing break without the kids, its got excellent food in an ideal location to Killarney enhanced by a very competent and welcoming staff. Well done to all concerned!

I was traveling with my two teen daughters so i was looking for a hotel that was close shops. I saw the pictures of the place and thought real girlie with the pinks. But when i saw the dining room and the menu it sold me. We arrived there and it was class service from the minute we stepped foot in the place. We were booked into a room that had two double beds and a single brought in for the 3rd person. It was luxury and the bathroom was spacious with a shower separate and bath. That evening we dined in the restaurant and the food was so good.. Breakfast the following day was full of variety with a brilliant kitchen menu to choose from also. We did not want to leave and I decided to treat us to another night. The manager said it was possible but we would need to move room to the floor below us. She also forewarned me that this room gets noise from the bar below until just after 12. I was ok with this am used to the girls with their loud music. It helped been forewarned. Will be staying again

Room Tip: If you have young children or if you dont like noise look to be placed on the 2nd or 3rd floor as th...
