We stayed booked the 5* lodge and stayed on 13 January of this year. We stayed in lodge 19, a two bed house. I think at some point we've all looked at pictures of hotel rooms on their website and you book based on the assumption that the hotel is being honest with what they advertise as 'standard' room or a 'delux' room. However when you subsequently check in, you have no idea why you were put in the smallest and only room in the hotel not renovated in the past 50 years and have no idea where they got the photos from....this is NOT the case here. What you see is what you get. 5* accommodation through and through.
The quality of the lodge was of the highest standard. Room sizes were good (including bathrooms), and the beds were comfortable. There is a sofa bed in one of the double rooms but to be honest if there is more 4 people staying in total, book another lodge. The pull out bed is tiny, suited for children rather than adults and makes it impossible to get in one side of the bed.
There was a good sized backgarden with patio area and in the summer would be ideal for a BBQ. We plan to get the family together and make a weekend of it. Kenmare is nice, relaxing part of the country we enjoyed the change of pace.
The Hotel facilities are excellent. The lesuire facilities were brilliat and the staff extremely friendly and outgoing. We did not eat in the hotel as we cooked ourselves so I cannot comment on the food or drink. We did however ask for champagne flutes and although they do not provide 'room service' to the lodges (which is fair enough), they were more than happy to have them ready for collection at reception.
We will with out a shadow of a doubt be returning to Kenmare Bay hotel in the near future..
