"Beautiful freshly cooked to order breakfast" that what I heard when asked if I could get something to eat. And they were telling true! Nice and cosy dinning area, white table clothes, designer plates and cups, good selection from the cold buffet and piping hot breakfast washed with NOT instant coffee! Great. "Everything starts from the leisurely eaten breakfast" -...

Our room was very nice. Perfect location to everything in town. Very few outlets and none in the bathroom so be prepared. Breakfast was extra, we tried it on our first day. If you like traditional irish breakfast it is a good deal, otherwise I would eat in town. The staff was very nice!

A comfortable hotel in a convenient location in Killarney. Room was very clean and bathroom modern. Breakfast was good with lots of options- in particular I enjoyed the vegetarian Full Irish. I stayed in a "single" room which felt cramped with both a full bed and a twin. I suggest making sure you know your room configuration when you book.

I came across a room only price on booking.com, so working in the hotel business I decided I'd ring the hotel direct, save them the commision. No way would the man on the phone even consider matching the price, and would only offer me a B&B rate. When we checked in the same man was there wearing no shoes! And...

Hotel and location are excellent! Close to shops and restaurants and a short drive to Killarney National Park and the Ring of Kerry. Rooms are well appointed and clean. Staff were so welcoming and helpful and really made the stay great. Breakfast which was included in our rate was delicious.

Absolutely wonderful! We were booked at a B&B for the night and when we got to the original place, it was horrid. Just the worst experience I've ever had. So we called here last minute and booked a room. When we showed up, the staff were super friendly and welcoming. Then when they heard about the horrible experience we just...

Beautiful hotel with friendly staff who were eager to help us check in and feel comfortable. The penthouse was spacious and inviting. The views of the mountains were breathtaking. I wish I had taken more pictures!

A great welcome. Very comfortable and ideally situated for anyone on foot - centre of town - within walking distance of all the main restaurants/shops /train station. Lovely breakfast - great choice. Very helpful at reception for advice on what to see or do for a day out in the Killarney area.
