              It had a beautiful setting and the view from the dining room was magnificent. Staff were very helpful and the bedroom was comfortable.

              I stayed in the hotel for 2 night. My experience of the dining room is quite negative. On Saturday night there were lots of children running in and out behind my chair while I was trying to eat my meal. I complained twice to the staff and they spoke to the parents but they continued to run in and out. These same children were also running up and down the stairs with no supervision. They regarded the hotel as a play area. It was a shame that the parents had no respect for other guests. If I didn't have this negative experience I would recommend it to friends.

            • Family with children
              7.0

              The location of the Lake Hotel is very beautiful, and near Killarney without being in town. The food at breakfast, which was an extra charge, was very good, and the dining area looks over the lake and the ruins of an old castle with the mountains in the background. Also, there was free wifi (a little spotty) and the front desk staff was very helpful and friendly.

              I did not think the room we were given was worth even half of what we paid!! Completely outdated furniture, the mattress was exposed at the bottom and looked old and creepy, very old carpet, and the couch was even coming apart in places! Yuck!! We did have a nice view, and the bathroom was okay, but, I was extremely irritated to discover on the day we left, that there is a newer part of the hotel that looks really nice, and has balconies overlooking the lake! I would not stay here again, as I felt cheated when it came to the room. I loved the Ring of Kerry, but Killarney in general is over-rated. Killorglin looked much more charming, and is also on the Ring of Kerry.

              Don't miss the opportunity to stay at such a great place and definitely update your room to one with a view to the lake (10€ more). The place is magnificent, the stuff super friendly, the rooms huge and luxurious and the spa facilities very relaxing! (Especially the outter spa with view to the mountains and the lake). This place is a must when visiting Killarney and the surrounding areas.

              This is a delightful hotel set on the edge of the lake in Killarney and with it's own ruined castle on the property. The room we had was in the newer section with a lake view and was spectacular. We had dinner in the bar and were impressed with the service and food quality. The hotel has an old world feel about it and is very quiet as it is out of town a little bit, although within walking distance. Killarney itself is a beautiful tourist town set in an equally beautiful part of Ireland.

              Internet didn't work in our room.

              Lovely location. The hotel has a large country house feel to it with lots of lounges, log fires. A large classical dining room. Good food.Used sauna and steam room, also sat in the hot tub in the rain.Hotel is easy to find. Hoping to stay again.

              The superb location and the consistently helpful and friendly staff. It is a hotel you simply want to keep coming back to.

              Not so much a dislike, more a suggestion. A few potted shrubs would brighten up the outdoor area adjoining the bar.

              Nice hotel and I would stay again if it was more affordable. 175 euro for one seemed a little high but I understand the room was a deluxe one

              The staff is top-shelf - truly the most helfpul, friendliest and knowledgable group anywhere. Also loved that the rooms were spotless.

              Nothing we didn't like but would appreciate wi-fi throughout the hotel.
