“Lovely building and excellent service”
Reviewed 6 April 2012 via mobile

We had a very enjoyable two night stay. Staff was very helpful with the Internet service, and provided, without being asked, an early bird breakfast. The usual rabbit warren, but with good signage and old world fittings and soft furnishings throughout. Any time again!

Stayed April 2012

Thank you very much for your lovely review of our hotel.
As you correctly mention, the hotel is very traditional in style but has been totally renovated with all modern facilities. We try to go the extra mile with our service and we appreciate you commenting so positively on it.
I hope you enjoyed the remainder of your time in Ireland and would be delighted of the opportunity to welcome you back again,
Kind regards

We are regular visitors to Killarney but this was our first occasion staying in the centre of the town, it didn't disappoint - the International ticked all the boxes - the Executive room was well above par - food was 10/10 and last but not least every single member of staff were brilliant - we will be back!!

Room Tip: Go for the Executive room it's well worth it!

We love staying here , lovely staff . Great Location in the center of town. The food is fab and some good entertainment in the bar . We love sitting in the lounge in front of the fire after breakfast to read the news paper. We are OAP's and are wll looked after . The hotel suits all ages tough and is good for families too.

Last year we stayed at the Plaza and found very few english speakers. The rooms were lovely but the service lacked. This year, we stayed at the International and left with huge smiles on our faces. The staff is friendly and helpful, they make things happen to make sure you have what you need and what you want, and all the while you feel like royalty. Centrally located!
