On a recent visit to this "5" star hotel for a social gathering with friends. Situated overlooking the beautiful Lakes of Killarney this hotel certainly has 5 star views, but the stars stop there. The casual approach by staff certainly lets down the 5 star status of this hotel, among several disappointments during the evening the main issue was the food, 2 people in the party ordered steak and both arrived lukewarm and certainly not cooked as per requested Medium Rare & Medium Well, we can ordered the extra sides or Portobello mushrooms & Saute Potatoes, what was presented was button mushrooms and burnt saute potatoes, ( see the image attached ) along with burnt tomato as a garnish. From observation it seems the staff are local, some lacking skills and forget, a 5 star hotel, that charges customers 5 star prices, equally requires 5 star service, 5 star food, 5 star experience. On previous visits to the hotel for lunch with work colleagues food arrived cool, under cooked, very disappointing.
If you looking for a 5 star experience don't waste your money here. On a positive note the pianist was excellent and the selection of music was enjoyable.
