We were greeted at front desk by a very competent friendly lady , named Annette. We booked last minute, a double room, upon arrival. The hotel is quite old fashioned in parts. The room had a road frontage view, which meant it was quite noisy. The shower room was spacious. It was not luxurious, ie no bath, and paper bath mats were used rather than toweling mats. I had to tune in Tv3 as it was not available at first. It was pretty standard , no frills. The breakfast was lovely , I had the vegetarian spinach egg dish , highly recommend it. The underground car park is very handy , closely located next to the hotel. We checked out early the following morning, but could have stayed parked complimentary in the car park all day if we choose.

When first arrived into the room (235) it was quite small and we weren't not a bit happy about it. On ringing down to reception we were advised that it was actually a suite- perhaps they should have informed us of this before we went to the room as we had not booked it. The sittingroom part could not be used as the tv had a weird green hue.

Everything in this hotel is nice and nothing more.

Worryingly though the fire exits in the reception are blocked both outside and inside by tables.

Had to travel to Killarney at short notice and telephoned Scott's and was greeted, yes greeted, by Siobhan. We got a great overnight rate, a big welcome on our arrival, a wonderful meal with great service in the bar, a very comfortable room and a breakfast that was just perfect. The free parking in their underground car park in the centre of Killarney is a great bonus. The next time we go to Killarney we will look no further than Scott's. Just perfect!

Room Tip: High floors are very quiet.

Stay here last weekend for one night. The hotel is ideally located in the town and has the massive added bonus of an underground car park which is a little difficult to fins but its free for guests!! BUT do not park around the sides of the car park as there are pipes suspended by metal wires and stuff about a metre off the ground along the walls and i parked uner one of these, believing that they were high enough off the ground alas they are not and i now sport a mark on the bonnet of my lovely red bonnet, granted its only the size of my baby fingernail but its there.

Apart from that incident the room in the hotel was fabulously spacious and lovely and cosy and comfy. The bathroom was also very spacious and had a bath and a shower. Tip, use the shower over the bath as its more powerful.

The staff were a delight and the atmosphere in the bar was fantastic. The breakfast was freshly cooked to order which is a;ways a bonus and was lovely too.

I would highly reccommend Scotts hotel for a fabulous break in gorgeous Killarney.

Room Tip: try get a room that doesn't face the square outside the bar

I was in Ireland on holiday last July from Australia, I found the bar staff here incredibly rude. Having enjoyed fantastic times in other bars/hotels/restaurants throughout Ireland & Europe, I will never return to this one.

Its an Irish pub best forgotten - purely because of the attitude of its staff!!!
