I stayed here during the Rose of Tralee Festival from August 14th until August 19th. Hotel booking sites said that I couldn't get all the nights I wanted, direct contact with the hotel proved otherwise. The previous review says that this hotel is noisy, yes it can be during the festival but only really on the very last night. If... More

Unless you are desperate, don't stay here. Very very noisy. Door rattled so much we had to put a door up against it. Reception didn't even ask how our stay was as I'm sure they are used to complaints. Very small bathroom and bed. We r not fat either just in case u were wondering.

What a great hotel. From the moment we checked in until we left everything was wonderful. The reception desk, bar and restaurant staff were all friendly and helpful! The area is beautiful and town is just a short walk from hotel.

Centrally located for Tralee shops, great stop off traveling from the ring of Kerry to Spanish point. Overnight parking available just along the road. My sister and brother in law had a room at the front of the hotel. They were disturbed by late partygoers until early morning. I would suggest anyone really needing a good nights sleep to request...
