Could not get to sleep for for ages due to very loud noise from late night pub/nightclub into the early hours right next to our bedroom. This was a serious disturbance and annoyance, particularly as I had requested a quiet bedroom when making the booking. Breakfast and location

Dear Barry, Thank you so much for your comments about our team here in The Imperial Hotel. Sadly the weekend in question, the Kerry v Mayo game plus being St Patricks weekend, lead to Tralee Town centre buzzing with atmosphere and yes noise. I am very sorry that the noise from the property next door kept you awake for a bit, it was outside our control unfortunately. I cannot find any record of a request for a particularly quiet room perhaps we mislaid it? I am glad you enjoyed our team and facilities here at the Imperial, and I apologise that you were disturbed by other noise. It is a pity that when I met you at reception on Sunday morning that you did not let me know and we could have tried to deal with this before you departed. Thank you, Derek Carroll.

My wife and I had a lovely 2 night stay here and found the service and food, second to none. Could not be more central, hence shortage of car parking space. We found every member of staff to be friendly and helpful, which was very refreshing.
