Historical Traveller Reviews of Lake Hotel
Surviving on the view!!!!from Yellowbely
It does not have the pleasant staff that one would expect. A girl called briddee is their only saving grace. No one can understand english which causes no end of problems. If you have money you can buy a lovely hotel and make it a nicer place by spending more money...but... the people working in it are the thing that make it a good hotel. Its a good hotel, it could be a great hotel.
Overpriced - Overwarm - Overnoisy - Underfed!from Biffo28
I would like to thank Tripadvisor for allowing me to stand up for our property, 77 staff and the Huggard family at the Lake Hotel as we feel we are not getting fair dues here. I value the reviews on tripadvisor but this time it very unfair. Other rewiews we must take on the chin sometimes and more are great to see. We will be working hard to meet the ever changing expectations of our customers and look forward to the future.
A piece of heaven in Irelandfrom Mills15
The staff are welcoming and friendly and the hotel itself is a real piece of heaven in Ireland. You would be forgiven for thinking that the gardens were shipped in from Eden, especially when the deer walk across the gardens and take a moonlight swim out across Lake Killarny.
If you book a superior room, this is exactly the view you get from the balcony of your room.
The bedrooms are large and very roomy and include a dining and seating area.
The restaurant serves food of a very high standard and we particulary liked the fact that children are not permitted into the restaurant or bar after 7pm.
Have a look at the hotels website and what you see is exactly what your get. This is the second time we have been back to this hotel and it was just as good as the first time. This is the most relaxed holiday we have ever had and intend to go back year after year.
Stunning viewsfrom pat2
Our room was large with 4poster bed and a balcony overlooking the lake, and the place was just a haven of peace and tranquility compared to the Vegas-style strip of hotels along the road coming out from town. The trails (hiking, biking, horse-and-carts) go by the entrance to the driveway to the hotel which is right on the edge of the National Park. The big old dining room has huge windows so everyone gets the view, and food was great. Ditto the bar.
We asked to change to a higherup room and they were helpful and obliging. The suggestions for hikes and excursions on their website are good. Sitting out in front by the old boathouse at sunset was idyllic.
The hotel's not modern, and not cheap, but we'll never forget our stay

Love the Lake Hotelfrom maryjenn
We also ate in the restaurant and the food was lovely, no complaints whatsoever and agin the view is amazing.
There is a lot that can be said about Killarney both good and bad, but after this weekend I feel the town has pulled up its socks somewhat, it has some spectaculr scenery and hotels & Spas to match, and along with the modernisation of some of the shops etc it has definatley brought it into the 21st century. Thank god the old leprechans seems to be fading away!!
I would really recommend it for a weekend away or to visit.
You can not beat Kerry County the sunsets alone are enough to hook you.
I look forward to going back here.
Lake Hotel is beautiful...from A TripAdvisor Member
Thank you so much,
Wonderfully uniquefrom Chi-townRedHead
The hotel is older and full of charm and character. It would make a good setting for a movie. What really sets the Lake Hotel apart is the staff; every single staff member was totally charming, yet professional. It is a family owned and operated hotel, which set it apart from the hotels we're accustomed to here in the U.S. We extended our stay there, as we liked it so much; when we left we felt as if we were leaving friends.
Loved the Lake Hotelfrom May_Zee_2004
The standard rooms are very large and spacious. They also have balcony rooms that face the lake and mountains. Outstanding views. There are walking paths where you can explore the property. The red deer frequent the property in the evening and you can see them walking about (and hear their mating calls also!). They are a conversation piece.
The staff are very friendly and eager to please. There is a nice outdoor jacuzzi and steam and sauna room also.
A wonderful place to call home while visiting Killarney. Highly recommended to all.
