      staff were execelant food very good but not that impressed with bedrooms and no wii for your own computer in your roon and when in reception wii very slow and bad would not stay there again i think

      location not great internet reception dreadful

      The house was very nice, very clean and perfect for families. It is our second time staying here and we will return. The hotel in itself is ok, it is nice to have option of using the facilities. We ate dinner in the restaurant with a 10% discount, food was Ok but nothing compared to what’s on offer in the town, but very handy with small children with the play area as there are not too many restaurants where you would be comfortable to bring children to eat at night. 5Min walk to the town, shop across the road. Location is ideal. The houses are self catering but washing tabs, dishwasher tabs and dettol spray were left. Restaurant staff were very pleasant but not reception staff.

      The lady at reception was quite rude and unpleasant on check out. No engagement of conversation, no smile and overall quite sour. Was asked "check this" (the bill) I said did I need to sign and she said "no just a card" (to pay) Whilst I was checking out the lady dealing with me was asked to take a call re a client query on the phone about pricing query she looked at the other lady on the phone with a sigh as if, I'm dealing with something here and then said "take her no." The other lady on reception dealing with the call said "they are all in meetings at the moment and someone would call her back". The whole thing could have been handled a lot better and gave bad impression. Cordial drinks in restaurant for children are very expensive. We will return but reception staff could have made a lot more of an effort.

      Location, close to, but not in town. Pleasant setting. Staff were friendly and capable, special request were looked after cheerfully. The Holiday Home is a recently built row house with good parking in front and full access to the hotels facilities.

      There was some, minor, damage to the walls of the house. Although the hotel had wi-fi in the lobby, there was no internet access in the home.

      Was very pleased with the holiday home. Everything you would need was included. Within walking distance of shops, town etc. very convenient. Really enjoyed our stay at the holiday homes, would go back again. Lovely pool and hotel facilities on your doorstep. House was well equipped and very clean.

      Nice,spacey and clean townhouse.Had everything you needed.Very good value.Close to town.

      Children under 18 are not allowed to use the spa.Why???Were looking forward to a nice quiet,relaxing time in the spa with the family after a long car trip.

      The welcome at reception. The wonderful pool area. The friendliness of all staff. The food. The room. The fact that we were asked if we enjoyed our stay.

      That we had only booked for one night - our own time constraints

      good restaurant, friendly staff

      problems with wifi connections, old furnitures, dirty bathroom.

      I was very impressed by the design and decor of the room, leisure centre , bar etc. The location was excellent. Excellent value for money.

      My only complaint is that on two occassions during our stay, our room was accessed by two separate people who had been given our room to stay in. The staff were apologetic about this but it was concerning to say the least.

      On my road trip around Ireland this hotel has been the most comfortable, and best value for money. I would have stayed longer if possible.

      Very clean & well maintained hotel. Excellent location in Kenmare with just a 5 minute walk to town center. Rooms were very clean & just the right temp. Kids enjoyed the playground & the pool which were well kept.

      Stayed midweek & for a family hotel was disappointing no entertainment was provided on any of the 3 nights. Breakfast was ok...food was hot but selection even for cereals not great.Was a steep price for the 3 nights but I do know August can be more expensive

    • Older travelers
      10.0

      The Hotel was very near the town of Kenmare, so convenient for walking in and out. The staff in the hotel were very friendly and helpful. All in all a nice place to stay.
