    Very disappointed

    I was very disappointed with my stay At this hotel. The rooms were much smaller than we imagined, nothing like the pictures we saw when we were booking it. The door nearly hits off the bottom of the bed as you walk into the room. It was very dirty and therefore uncomfortable, I found myself going around trying to clean everything. Even the light switches were really dirty, they were sticky. The table had crumbs on it and then toilet seat had also not been cleaned. It was obvious they only changed the bedding and that was it. Additionally the walls are so thin you can hear everything. Our room was located on the third floor right beside the cleaners storage closet and at 9am she started working, she began by hoovering the hall (at 9am, waking everyone!!!), you go to a hotel to relax and enjoy a sleep in not to get woken up by the cleaners. She then placed her trolley against the wall out side our room, we could hear every move she made. And she kept hitting against the wall. Then around 30mins later another colleague came down to her and the two of them spoke very loudly outside our bedroom for about 45 minutes! We could hear nearly every world they were saying making it impossible to fall back to sleep. In all I would definitely not recommend this hotel. The location is the only benefit of staying here.

    Location is perfect. Room was big and clean, bed was super comfy. We stayed for our anniversary and let the hotel know this in advance, we thought they would do something nice for us but we didn't get as much as a happy anniversary wish from any member of staff. This was ok, but what really ruined the stay was the amount of rude staff in the downstairs bar and restaurant on the Tbursday night. We waoted for a seat dor 20 minutes and did not get even a hello from any member of staff. We eventually got seated and waited another 10 minutes for a menu. We were left waiting again for 15 minutes without any service so we walked out and went to a different restaurant where we received better service. Managers need to train their staff in being polite, nothing but rude young staff standing around joking with eachother seeong us waiting at the door and not even acknowledging us. Parking at the hotel is limited to 10 spaces so you need to park elsewhere and pay for it at €1 p/h. I'd stay again but would not visit the bar or restaurant due to the poor attitudes of staff.

    Disappointing Stay For a regular customer

    We were very disappointed with the hotel. We would regularly be in killarney and have stayed in the Best Western Hotel many times but this time was not great. Firstly the room we were put in was absolutely terrible, lino floor with a big hump in the floor, cold room, curtain pole hanging down and unable to close the curtain and took about 10 minutes to get warm water from the shower. Now in fairness to the girl in reception, she gave us a better room the following day. We arrived in to the bar later that night which was quiet to get some food and a drink. After being rushed to make our order at 9:45 we were still sitting at the table at 10:20 waiting for the drinks. The service was terrible. The manager though was very apologetic and sorted it out but overall the stay was disappointing

    Family break

    We arrived at 1pm with our luggage to see if we could check in. We knew from the website that check in time was 4pm. We were told by the receptionist that no rooms would be ready until 4pm. We were fine with that and asked if we could leave our luggage. We were told that due to Covid19 they were unable to hold our luggage. I am not sure what Covid19 had to do with our luggage. At dinner the waitress who guided us to our booked table left us there with no menus. She came back 15 minutes later to take our order. She then went and got us 4 menus. The menus were given to my husban, me, my 3&5 year olds. They had no kids menu on them. Another waitress arrived to take our order and i asked for the kids menu.. she had to go get them. There was cutlery and plates left on table from previous customers. When our food arrived we had to ask for new cutlery. The food was poor. Breakfast was poor too. Could not eat the scrambled eggs I ordered as they were inedible. The staff in reception and at breakfast were really friendly and welcoming. The hotel is in a great location and has a car park. The room was comfortable.

    Very disappointing!

    After travelling 4 and a half hours we finally arrived at the hotel but could not find a car park so spent another half hour driving around looking for one only to find that they didnt have one. We were told to park in the public car park just down the road. As we were checking in we were told the room wasnt ready yet (bear in mind it is now 5pm) so we had to wait another half an hour. When we finally got to the room there was only one pillow each, no kettle and no little fridge. When we asked about a residence bar we were told it was on the 2nd floor so we went in and asked for drinks but they wouldnt serve us without buying food which i think is bad form knowing full well we were residents. For the price we paid for two nights it was just not up to standard. Even the photos in their website did not match up to what we stayed in..totally different. All in all we were very disappointed with our stay and would not be recommending this hotel.
