Obviously from previous comments I have a refurbished room as it is lovely, clean and good facilities. Close to the town centre about a 5 min walk. Resturant has reasonably priced and great food. I would think that a few mores smiles at reception would be a positive attraction.

We went here as a group of 7 and had 4 rooms, unfortunately my 12 & 13 year old children were in a room along the corridor rather than next to us in the adjoining room. The staff were really friendly and the hotel is in a lovely place, it is a little tired looking but the staff made up... More

The hotel has very nice staff and a helpful reception manager, but for the cost we paid for a Saturday night stay we were let down by the atmosphere in the bar(no sky sports on a busy match day??why) and quality of the rooms even for 3 star. Barfood very small portions for price. If you are looking for a... More

We arrived an hour early and asked on the off chance was our room ready, we were told no, which was fine, and said we'd be back at 3. We decided to have lunch in the bar. We were handed 1 menu (there were two of us) and within a minute they came back for our order, as there was... More

Previously stayed here nearly 3 years to the day and was very disappointed! When we stayed here before we were so impressed and we were looking forward to returning! Checkin was very uninformative and unwelcoming! Our family room was 'fine'-basic but clean. Pool was ideal for families though and our kids loved it! No complaints about same! It's our meal... More

I attended a hen party at this hotel recently and I have to say it was the best hotel I have ever stayed in for a hen party, the staff were welcoming and accommodating, It was total value for money with our package that was offered. The dinner we received was of a 5 star rating. Cant wait to go... More

Very clean and spacious room. Staff were wonderful and food was very good. The bar was hopping the two evenings we were there. Great place to use as a base for seeing the attractions in the area. Taking the shortcut (which staff will point out) can get you walking into the heart of town in a few minutes.

Not terrible, not great, fine. Cheap deal, good breakfast, very uncomfortable beds... and you'll be up early, lots of bus tours walking around and chatting in halls as they stroll for breakfast at 8am. Soulless bar too.. staff are very friendly though.

We recently stayed at the Kenmare Bay Hotel in one of there holiday homes. We were attending a christening and even though we have been in the Kenmare area and visited the beautiful town, had never had the opportunity of staying in Kenmare before. The holiday home was a delight, management had thought of everything one might need to have... More
