We stayed in this hotel for 2 nights during a weeks stay in Kerry. We received a friendly welcome and the reception area was neat and tidy.
Our room was on the bottom floor of three which meant we could park outside the window and pass our bags in which saved us walking around!! The room was very comfotable and had a good choice of hot drinks. The TV had plenty of channels, a plus with the fickle Irish weather. The bathroom was clean but had yellow water in the bath, thankfully I've seen this a few times before so know that it's harmless, probably from the pipes?
The leisure centre provides towels to guests, you just sign in. The time we went the pool was very busy as it was school holidays, and there was never a space in the very small jacuuzi in the hour we were there. The steam room was excellent, just the right temperature. Lockers needed a €2 coin, but this was returned when you collect your things.
Breakfast is a buffet where you choose what you want. This does cause queues both to get seated and to select what you want. The quality of food was good too. One of the mornings I was hungover and was allowed to take a breakfast sandwich to my room to eat later, some places would frown upon this, here it was no problem.
I think the sign saying 3 minutes walk to town must've been measured by Usain Bolt as it is more like 10-15, however, it does save you walking all the way around the main entrance. The short cut also has lots of flowers and wildlife so is a bonus.
In summary, a comfortable stay, and a great base for exploring Kenmare and the surrounding Kerry area.
