We stayed in this hotel on a recent visit and to say we were dissapointed would not be unfair. The Hotel badly needs a makeover. I was going to give this place a 2 star rating but I have given it an extra one for an excellent breakfast.

Service was great, however hotel needs a serious upgrade. Room was quite hot, no way to adjust room temperature. Rooms were small, but that is ok most European hotels are. Rugs needed to cleaned or replaced,(bit of a smell. Service was good, location was ok. Tralee is a big city not the quaint village you want for tourism

We stayed over a weekend for a friends wedding. The staff were very friendly and helpful and the building and rooms were very well maintained. A special mention to the chef and staff of the bar restaurant who went out of their way to accommodate an awkward vegan!

This hotel is an oldfashioned but comfortable old lady. All rooms are clean and comfortable, and a really good nights sleep was had by all. Breakfast was self service. It was excellent. The staff were smiling and very happy to look after us. A great safe free car park at the rere.
