We always enjoy our stay. The staff in the dining room always make you welcome. The bar staff might be a little more smiley The food was even better than last year The toilet in 210 flushes very badly and needs a dose of caustic soda !!

This hotel is superb, the staff are so friendly and helpful, the rooms are gorgeous and so clean, the lake views are breathtaking. The breakfast is fantastic choice and service are excellent. I found the restaurant dinner menu limited in choice and expensive, a lot of garnish, small portions, I would recommend this hotel to family and friends.

Friendly staff, good improved food, fast service when required. Wonderful views. Love the flavoured water in reception. The staff aim to please, when I found the duvet too hot it was replaced by sheet and blankets.

Without doubt the most stunning location we stayed in during our holiday in Ireland. Perfect base for touring all around the Killarney area and further afield. The staff are lovely and the rooms immaculate. Food is plentiful and tasty served in the restaurant, but there's a Bistro as well which seemed very popular.

Delicious food, great selection at the breakfast buffett and both the restaurant and bar served lovely meals. The only negative I might have is outside decor, as your driving in the outside decor and look...

Just a lovely hotel in beautiful surroundings. The staff is super friendly and cannot do enough for you. Food was good. Rooms were spacious and clean. Trying to find your room on your first day can prove a little confusing though. Overall a fantastic stay.

Having previously visited for an evening meal during a previous visit, I knew this was the place I wanted to stay on a "special treat to me" holiday. Outside of building does not do justice to the beautiful interior of stately home standard and style - Ireland's Downton! Setting by the lake is outstanding and luxury room was spacious. Balcony...
