Friendly Staff and central location

We had one of the warmest welcomes ever upon arriving at the hotel, offered tea and cake while we were waiting on our room as we were really early. The decor is old but well maintained and very clean. Overall great value for money

A hotel in desperate need of a revamp with fantastic staff and great breakfast

It needs a huge revamp; furniture its really old and bed had some cracks, so did the ceiling of the room and bathroom window, which by the way was quite mouldy. Corridors are full of "antiques" that look as if noone has pay attention to them in years and make the hotel look grotty. However, staff are really nice, helpful and efficient. They sorted the misunderstanding with our booking straight away. Another complement has to be paid to it's breakfast, staff was reallyn pleasant, you get plenty of choice and their home baking it's just superb. But in a town of Killarney where you have a lot of choice, I would consider this a hugely overpriced hotel .
