Beautiful hotel
Unique hotel with beautiful surroundings.. wild deer in the grounds of the hotel, beautiful views of killarney national park and fantastic spa facilities including outdoor hot tub which was needed after a day exploring the area. Could not recommend enough :)
Jamie, gb2 night trip
Very good 8,0
Beautiful location, relaxing weekend
Our overall experience was good! The staff are all very friendly especially Jerome who served us our morning coffee in the bar and sinead who greeted us warmly in reception. The only minor details which could be improved was that our breakfast room service was delivered half an hour early on the first morning so we were not ready for it and there was a hair in the maple syrup :/ I had requested when I booked if maybe something special could be done as it was a special occasion but this wasn’t acknowledged at all and they also forgot about the VIP benefits. And lastly, when we dined on our last night and asked for it to be put on our room tab (which we had been doing all weekend) our server said we didn’t have a valid card. I had to speak to reception to sort it out but it was a bit embarrassing to have to do that especially as there was a valid card on file. However despite all this, the hotel is in a beautiful location overlooking a lake with amazing scenery, there is a lovely lounge with a real fire to relax next to and a great atmosphere around the hotel in the evenings.

Amazing stay, highly recommended
Room was beautiful and spotlessly clean. We were celebrating our anniversary, was gifted a beautiful print of the Lake. All staff were so helpful and friendly, from reception staff, bar/restaurant staff to cleaning staff, they all went over and above. I would highly recommend the food in the restaurant, it was outstanding. Overall, it was the best hotel experience I have had in a long time.

Stunning location, friendly staff who have a genuine desire to help, beautiful ground and fantastic food whether in the bar, restaurant or for breakfast

Exceptional 10,0
Absolutely Perfect
From the moment we checked in until our (reluctant) point of departure, everything about our stay and The Lake Hotel was superb. I wouldnt hesitate to recommend the hotel. Its location was out of this world. Right next to Killarney park, bike hire across the road and a 20 minute walk to the town centre

3 night stay.
Hotel is a lovely combination of old world charm with modern amenities however the setting is what makes this place. The service on our stay was friendly but very patchy with regards to speed and accuracy of orders however the staff were working under new and challenging conditions so I would definitely not hold it against them.

Best hotel ever
Absolutely amazing.
Cliona, ie2 night trip
Poor 2,0
Rooms are roasting (no air con). Very dated looking hotel.
Rebecca, ie1 night trip
Good 6,0
Room was very dated with dark wood and small double bed. Could hear everything from the hall way outside. The bathroom was not good, very small would have expected more from a 4 star. Reminded me of a budget hotel bathroom. Took 30 minutes for someone to take our order at breakfast each morning. The location however was amazing right beside the national park and beautiful views of the lake. The bedrooms on the 1st floor definitely need modernising.
