I stayed in Benners last Saturday night. It was very nice, great Christmas atmosphere. Can't say enough about the staff, so helpful and pleasant. Grand room, spotless. Food there was great. Only drawback was noise on Saturday night from pub across the road-late night pub. I was on the third floor and when I said this at reception next morning,... More

Just spent Saturday 19th November in Benners. What a lovely hotel and so central. The room was spaceous and even though it was over looking the main road you could not hear a thing. The staff were so helpful in many different things. We had a lovely meal in the bar while we watched Ireland play the All Blacks. (bit... More

We stumbled on this hotel by accident, having decided to stay in Tralee for the evening. We quickly gave Pauline at the front desk a nickname: "The friendliest person in Ireland." She even booked us a room the following night in Killarney. The entire staff was fantastic. The room was great. The bar staff was superb. I would definitely recommend... More

Its rare to find hotel which genuinely makes you feel like a special guest every time you walk in the door. Though we were only on a short weekend family break in November, the staff left a lasting impression.

Excellent little hotel! Cosy beds, great breakfast, warm-hearted staff! It was easy to fall in love with Ireland and this hotel and its kind people were part of it! The location is also great: right next to the church and to the wonderful park! Thank you so much for this beautiful experience. I will surely come back!

We ate in the restaurant in Benner's Hotel this week and enjoyed good service and lovely food. We both asked for some changes to our main course choices and nothing was a problem. The menu was varied and we chose a fish dish and a seafood dish. Both were very good. The relaxed atmosphere is convivial. We will return.
