Stayed two nights over the August weekend, the room we were allocated was fairly old fashioned and in my opinion needed updating. The TV looked like Noah had thrown it from the Ark and only three stations available. This was not a big deal with me as I don't particularly look at a lot TV while away, however it would have been nice to have a wider choice of stations due to the Olympics being on at that time. My other issue with the room was the bathroom, it was not too bad overall, however. The little things that let it down were, the industrial type fluorescent light over the bathroom mirror, not even a shade on it. Also a broken toilet roll holder still screwed to the wall, minus the carrier for the toilet roll, these were placed on top of the cistern. Why oh why do hotels not pay attention to the little details. Also the one down lighter in the bathroom was not working.
Now for the good part, we booked dinner for 7:30pm in the restaurant and the menu was fantastic. Great choice of starters, mains and desserts/cheese. All the food we had was excellently cooked and the wine reasonably priced. The staff were great at all times and the waitresses in the dining room at breakfast and dinner were very pleasant.
The hotel was also quiet at night and easy to get a good nights sleep. This hotel could be very good by paying attention to the small details and an upgrade of the rooms in the main building.
Very central for the Ring of Kerry and walking on Rossbeigh beach, overall I would return but request a newly refurbished room.
