Having stayed here many times thirteen years ago, i had no hesitation in returning to this lovely hotel, and even though it was winter i was not disappointed. Staff are welcoming and the public areas have plenty of character. There is a nice log fire in the bar area. Breakfast is excellent, highly recommend the bacon. The rooms are ok. I had a room located on first floor above the restaurant and was able to pick up the wifi signal, which some other rooms cannot. Try to get a room with lake view.

We stayed here on my birthday for one night and having phoned around to get the best prices for hotels around Lough Derg, we ended up booking the Bridal Suit (!) on a B & B basis for 110 Euros. I have stayed in five star hotels before with rooms of similar quality that cost double or more. This was apparently the best room in the house but I will say the bed was terribly hard. Perhaps it was built to withstand a sucession of wedding nights? Do check out the website as I can't speak for other rooms. We had a gorgous view overlooking the river Shannon (not the 'lake' as it suggests) and the town of Killaloe on two sides. We didn't stay for dinner, instead we went down the road about 800 yards or so to Flannagans - very nice, I will review this too!. It was definitely a well serviced place but there is no lift to the first floor. The friendly receptionist offered help with the bags however. The full Irish breakfast was gargantuan and the choice in the buffet was great. Highly recommended place to stay.

Lovely little hotel in great location. Very pleasant staff. Room was large, clean and nicely furnished but over heated. Breakfast was superb - everything you could want and very well laid out and labeled. Very good bar food and reasonably priced. Overall a very nice 2 night stay.

Room Tip: book a lake view room

Myself and two of my friends stayed here last Saturday night after a party in Killaloe. All we needed was somewhere to stay for the night, therefore we didn't have big expectations, thankfully as we were sorely disappointed. When we checked into our room there was a very bad smell of drains but we decided not to make an issue of it. We had hoped to be able to sleep on in the morning as it was around 5.00am getting to bed! We were awoken at 8.00am by an incredibly noisy dining room which we discovered was right next door. People were literally seated against the other side of the wall from from our beds. It was impossible for us to sleep. The room itself was very spacious as it was for 4 people, with quite a tired smelly bathroom. It was on the ground floor so when we opened the curtains people were passing by right outside our window where there was a path, absolutely no privacy. In my opinion this should not be used as a room as the location is so bad. We made our grievances known to the receptionist upon checkout. She gave us a halfhearted apology and was mainly defensive. I'm sure we would have had a totally different experience if we'd just had a different room. I would never stay here again.

Room Tip: Definitely don't stay in Room 300

Stayed here for my work do. Rooms were clean, comfortable and really warm. Staff were very friendly. Lovely location and great view of the lake. Christmas decorations were up and it looked lovely. I'm just sorry I didn't use the pool. It looked really good.

Stayed here last weekend in November. The staff were really friendly and very helpful. We stayed in a lake view room which was lovely. Food was very good at breakfast and dinner. Would recommend this hotel
