The Grand Hotel staff, Eileen, Tina, Clare, Dick, Ingrid, etc were fabulous. The hotel was warm, comfortable and the breakfasts lovely (and big). It was value for money and if we get back to Tralee I know where we'll be stayin'.

Stayed November 2010, traveled with family

This is a wonderful hotel. Perfectly located for exploring this wonderful section of Ireland. Rooms are immaculate, spacious and very quiet. Excellent staff and very fine restaurant within the hotel. We will stay there again next year.

I organized a Golfing Trip for twenty of us. Eileen and Dick could not do enough for our group to make sure we were comfortable and happy. They looked after every detail.

We had group dinners in the dining room on three nights and the food and service was outstanding. Eileen even printed special theme menus for each dinner.

Breakfast was delecious with lot's of choices including the "Full Irish".

The rooms have been updated and the Dick Boyle runs a first class operation.

We will return to the Grand as it makes a fantastic home base to Golf at Tralee, Ballybunion and Killarney which are all less than an hour away.

We could not have been happier.

Thank You again Eileen!

We stayed in the Grand Hotel for one night.
The staff was professional but not particularly friendly, except Yvone who served breakfasts.
The hotel is very central which is good, and not too noisy. But there's no parking in the hotel and it's hard to find a parking place in the street.
The room was small and the windows looked over what seemed to be the back of the kitchen, with aeration pipes that were noisy.

Room was very large and clean. Manager was very friendly, we arrived without a booking, he showed us the room without hesitation before we said we would take it. A lovely hotel with comfortable beds. We had a quad room and could not fault it. The service was excellent. Breakfast was included, lovely dining room and definitely this hotel is value for money, great service and comfortable. Located right in the town. We will definitely stay there again when we go back to Tralee

This was the second time we stayed at the Grand. We stayed for one night on a bed breakfast and evening dinner basis. The room was modern clean and really quite. The food for both breakfast and dinner was of a very high standard. However what makes this hotel is it's staff. The most friendliest obliging people I have ever came across. We stayed exactly one year ago to the day and it was only for one evening and when we returned this year the staff all remember us - unbelievable. So I have posted new photos as some of the ladies (not Anne she skipped off on Monday and didn't turn up for the photo shot ha ha ) Grand hotel keep up the good work.

We stayed here for 1 night and were very glad we hadn't booked for longer. The bed was so hard it was painful and the pillows were so hard we felt as though we could have been sleeping on bricks. There was no window or extractor fan in the bathroom, which meant we had to open the windows in the room after showering. Not a problem if we hadn't been overlooking the kitchen area with an overpowering stench of cooking fat and an extremely loud whirring sound from some sort of machine or cooling fan. So loud in fact that we went to a nearby pharmacy to buy earplugs. Need not have bothered as was worst night's sleep of our lives. On a positive note staff very friendly, with the exception of the woman who served breakfast. We had dinner in the bar and the food was lovely. The location is very convenient. Will NEVER EVER stay here again.
