KBH is a lovely spot with good service and friendly staff but needs a little more atmosphere and attention to detail in the dining room...couldn't find the fresh fruit tucked away on a side table away from the buffet, The room was comfortable overlooking the carpark but the window had a torn net curtain. Parking would be problematic if it... More

We stayed for one night - no breakfast. It was a Monday so I thought the parking issues I had read about would not apply but I was wrong. Had to park in the leisure centre which would not have bothered me normally but it was bucketing rain. Otherwise the staff were fine, the room was lovely and spacious, very... More

You know you've found a great hotel when you find yourself fitting in a little mini break at some point every year just to go back to the same spot. I have stayed in KBH 3 times now and never been disappointed. It isn't just about giving the best breakfast around or the smiling helpful service of all the staff.... More

Just back from a week in one of the lodges with my wife and 2 boys aged 12 and 14. We wanted the freedom of a self catering cottage but close to town, and this meets those requirements. We chose one of the luxury lodges, which are tucked up in a quiet cul-de-sac away from the main hotel car park... More

I arrived at the hotel 15 minutes before their check-in time of 14:00 ( web said from 14:00 ) and acknowledged that I was a little early. Very quickly I was informed that check-in STARTED at 15:00 and I would have to wait as my room wasn't ready. Fair enough! I waited half an hour before asking again ( in... More

A great hotel located outside Kenamre town, extremely friendly staff who make you feel welcome as soon as you arrive, stayed 1 night with my wife and the rooms were spacious and clean. The hotel is quiet and child friendly. The breakfast is nice with a good choice of dishes to suit all tastes.
