Reviewed April 25, 2013

I and six members of my family stayed at the hotel for a family reunion in April 2013. The bedrooms are very clean and of decent size, with very comfortable beds and choice of three types of pillow - hard, medium, and down.
The bar is a jewel, beautifully decorated in dark wood. The bar staff were wonderful, (as were all the staff), and the food served there was excellent - try the chowder with a pint of Guinness, simply superb!
The hotel is situated in the middle of the town, very convenient for shopping etc.
I would give it 5 stars, but for the interruption to sleep on the last night, when the hotel was "invaded" by a noisy Welsh rugby team returning from a late night out, and a faulty fire alarm going off at 3.00AM!

Changed my booking to this hotel after reading recent reviews of the Abbeygate. Definitely the right decision. Lovely hotel, even though there is some refurbishment going on. Excellent location as well. No parking in the immediate vicinity but there was free parking in a local car park about 500 yards away, (the hotel give you a card to place on your dashboard). Food was excellent though not cheap. Excellent service throughout our stay

Perfect place to stay if you're going to Tralee or surrounding areas. The busy bar and cafe during all hours of the day shows the popularity of the venue to locals, and i can see why: the service and quality were excellent in all areas.

I spent two weekend nights at the well located Grand Hotel and the rooms were very comfortable, clean and spacious.
The food and atmosphere at the Hotel were superb and the well managed staff would go out of their way to make your stay a pleasant one.
Will definitely be returning again and would recommend to friends and family.

My partner and I found this stylish hotel on a trip to Ireland on around 09 Feb 2013. We located is by absolute accident using an iPhone app. called 10min before arrival at 19:00.
The receptionist was friendly and helpful, we expected nothing more than a pillow to rest our heads for the night.
From arrival to departure we were constantly impressed with this establishment, service, food, friendliness, attitude of staff rooms and facilities were all fantastic.

From a person who passes through around 10 different hotels a month it has been many years since having such a pleasant experience and was happy to pay the bill.

My only advice to the owner is you have got the balance between price and product perfect so keep doing what you doing !!! Thank you.

Room Tip: We enjoyed second floor street facing room
