Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

This was my 5 visit to the Grand hotel. It is centrally located for visiting my family and tourists sites. Hotel staff in all departments were friendly and always going overboard to assist. Rooms were clean, Restaurant food and bar were exceptional. Full breakfast in morning made a great start of the day!

Hotel's Favourite
Our car broke down whilst visiting Ireland, and were very fortunate to have an excellent garage Kellihers in Tralee. They very kindly arranged our stay in The Grand Hotel, this was just one night, but a lovely experience indeed. We were welcomed at the reception by a lovely lady called Eileen, she was am absolute gem. She fitted us in at such short notice, putting us in a very comfortable room with all facilities we required. The breakfast was excellent, with a very varied choice of hot or cold food. Although it was just one night, we will remember our stay fondly, and thank you again Eileen x.

Booked the hotel, after phoning reception to ensure it had a suitable room, travelling with a elderly guest with mobility issues, clearly explained that we need easy access room with a walk-in shower, Arrived at 4pm to check in and discovered our room was up a narrow steep stairs !!! No lift !! Left us scrambling for a hotel last minute !!! The Ash Hotel to the rescue !!

Had an occasion to be in Tralee recently and ate Sunday lunch at the Grand Hotel. Service was good , the dining room though big is very dark and dowdy looking. Menu was good but the food was not great. We would be well used to dining out & very honest in our reviews. The chips were cold though my fish was lovely. Salad on the plate was tasteless, overall not a good meal. Place was very busy so we did not complain but we would not be in a rush back unfortunately.

This is a charming, traditional hotel centrally located in Tralee town. The room was clean but basic. We had to ask for additional tea, coffee and milk but this was provided. Both the breakfast and the food served in the busy bar in the evenings were excellent and the staff were hard-working and friendly. The music in the bar on Friday evening was fantastic and made for a lovely atmosphere.

Long time visitor to the Grand. Excellent food. Service is generally quite good. However overbearing manager continually observing. Seem to be expected to leave once food is eaten. I suppose turning over tables. Other than that what to say.

Stayed at the Grand Hotel as one of our stops through Ireland. The service was outstanding. Great hotel, great restaurant, great bar. They even helped with reservations at our next stop. I can’t say enough about how nice and helpful everyone was.

Booked a 2 night stay and left on the second day. The room was too small for 2 people with a tiny cupboard and no room for suitcases. Extractor fans for the kitchen right outside our bedroom windows constantly on like listening to a generator. No air conditioning and the heat was sickening. No lift so all our bags and suitcases had to be carried up the stairs. Staff weren't accommodating and hadn't a welcoming manner and for the money the room cost which was far from cheap friendliness should have been common courtesy. I've stayed in various hotels and I was disappointed with Grand Hotel. Wouldn't recommend and certainly wouldn't stay there again. Not a good place for relaxing as its busy and noisy. Perfect location for a single person going for a session or a drinking weekend
