I have just had a short break in the lake hotel with my parents, my father is in a wheelchair and I wanted a hotel that had cosy comfortable rooms that we could sit and relax in, and enjoy having limited freedom.That is exactly what I got, there are a selection of rooms, that are big and very comfortable, and easy to get around. the views are lovely, the food was really good ,staff attentive and friendly. I really enjoyed our break away it was exactly what we wanted a nice hotel in a great location with good food and nice staff what more could you want.

Room Tip: disability rooms large and adequate but maybe a bit tierd

Me and my girlfriend stayed here for three nights from friday checking out on monday.
When we checked in the first room we were given was directly on top of the hot tub we asked to change rooms and the lady on reception I think her name was breda was great she made us feel very comfortable, as we hate complaining and moved us straight away in a very friendly manner, Thankyou. The setting of the hotel is stunning great views and walks straight out of the door. The rooms are a good size and the bathrooms well stocked. The furniture in the rooms chairs pillows beds etc could be more comfortable. As part of our deal we was one dinner in the restaurant the food was very poor and we felt it let the hotel down.
I would stay at this hotel again but I would not eat in the restaurant overall I had a very relaxed weekend.

We stayed 2 nights. Our full day was to trip around the Ring of Kerry. This hotel is ideally located for this. Quite a "regal" look to the inside of the building.
The main resturant was not open for evening meals the day we were there. (Mid week) They served dinner in the "Sun room" conservatory.... The food was a little restricted in choice but the quality was very good. Again the quality of the cooked breakfast was as very good.
There are a number local walks to attractions should you not wish use your car or in my case motorcycle.
Would stay here again .......?

Room Tip: Stayed in a delux lake view room. Everything you would expect.. Superb lake view. Was only 2 of abou...

We spent last weekend in the Lake Hotel and had a most enjoyable time. Our visit started with a boat trip on the lake which was beautiful and very informative thanks to John the boatman.
Our room was excellent. Overlooking the lake as seems to be the way with most rooms in the hotel . The dinner was first class and there were plenty of options for my wife, who is coeliac, and on a gluten free diet. Breakfast was equally good and the buffet was constantly refreshed.
The staff were all very friendly and professional especially our waitress Aileen who was always smiling and ensuring we had everything we needed. The time just flew by and we were sorry to leave but will definitely return to the Lake Hotel a the earliest opportunity.

Room Tip: Just ask for a lake view

We stayed here for a well deserved break from the smallies! We stayed in the original part of the hotel. The bedroom was huge, imaculate and had a balcony. Only gripe is that these rooms really do need to be upgraded. Pine furniture just doesnt cut it for me and I guess people expect a flat screen tv etc. That said, cleanliness is a huge thing for me, and the room was spotless with a stunning view onto the lake. It doesnt get much better. This hotel has a lovely old world feel to it.....serves gorgeous guinness in the bar....compared to acrid pints served in certain pubs in town....the staff are very friendly. The toasted sandwiches in the bar were great...and the food in the restaurant was very nice too. This hotel gives you good value for your buck...and we prefer somewhere like the Lake Hotel which has lots of character. Would definitely stay here again.

Room Tip: Choose a room in the new extension rather than the original building

This is a beautiful hotel tucked away in woodland and on the shore of a tranquil lake. this place is magical and has great character. first thing in the morning there were 7 wild deer down by the lake. you will not forget your stay here. make sure you get a room with a view of the lake.
