We [7 friends] stayed for a hillwalking weekend. THE HOTEL IS ONLY A SHORT DRIVE FROM A RANGE OF SCENIC MOUNTAINS AND LAKES. It is only a short walk from the Kerry way.If walking is your hobbey then this is one of the best locations in Ireland.

I recently spent one night in this hotel. The Staff, food & service was top class. A special mention to Zeta who served us - she is wonderful. The rooms are fabulous & the view is amazing We are looking forward to our return visit already! Sneem is a great little village, lots of pubs, restaurants & little coffee shops - lots to see and do. we will be back!

My husband and I have just come back from a exceptional break in Sneem Hotel. We stay in this brillient hotel a couple of times a year, it really suits our needs. Our stay this year was "OUT OF THIS WORLD"- with regard to the room, sevice, food and the wonderful professional staff. My husband was ill recently and I was very nervous staying in a hotel for the first time since his illness but let me assure you I souldn't have worried the staff in Sneem Hotel made me so relaxed and they were so caring towards us, it is like a home away from home only it has better views! Thank you so much Louis, Nicola, Bernie, Louise and all of your team - WE'LL BE BACK!!! (PLEASE GOD)

As a hotelier myself I can be pretty fussy about hotels in general but I must say I had a great stay at this hotel and would reccommend it to anyone, especially couples on a relaxing break away

The good:
- First impression was really good, greeted with a large crackling fire in the lobby
- Room was very spacious and had such an amazing view of the lake, it was so beautiful with a balcony, pure tranquilty
- The food on both nights was fantastic, we were on a romantic package and the set menu on the first night was beautiful, I had goats cheese for starters, duck for main and this beautiful chocolate mousse for dessert... could not fault it if I tryed!! We were going to go up to the villiage the 2nd night but then said we'd eat off the bar menu, we would have eaten in the restaurant but were told the menu was the same as the first night but we werent disappointed with the bar menu... I had thai fish ackes for starters, chicken for main it was amazing so tasty top notch food!!!
- They have kayaks and their own boat house out the back, I never tryed it before so I said Id give it a go, my partner has his own kayak at home, this is a complimentary service and we went off out on the lake it was beautiful! We also availed of their bicycles and went for a nice bike ride
- Staff were all lovely couldn't fault their friendliness

Not so good: (but would not affect me returning)
- Was suprised on check in that they didnt ask for a credit card to be pre authorized, I had given one when originally making the reservation but their was not enough to cover the stay on it... I did pay for everything but was suprised at the relaxed attitude towards it
- When I booked the package it said their would be a box of chocolates in the room however when I arrived there were four chocolate covered strawberries in a glass, was a bit disappointed about that
- The last thing I was disappointed in was heir leisure facilities, when researching it said it had a gym, jacuzzi etc... (which is true) but when I arrived the standard was extremely below standard, you have to go down a creepy lift, the gym is equipped but very tucked away, the jacuzzi was OOO and looked like one you would buy yourself and not a hotel one, the changing facilities were like a GAA changing facilities area... maybe this is not something highly used or promoted here but would have liked to have spent some time there.

All in all though I had a lovely stay, it is not a place you would go if you want a lot to happen but if you want to have a de stress, turn off the mobile phone and spend some quality time with your partner then its perfect

This was our 2nd visit to Sneem Hotel and we can't speak highly enough of this fantastic place. We stayed in the hotel the first time in a huge room with an amazing view. This time we stayed with a friend in the self-catering apartments, which also have great sea views. The staff are the most helpful and friendly we have ever come across - nothing is too much trouble for them. Having bikes available is a great touch and it is loads of fun to explore the village and surrounds on two wheels, at your own pace. Will definitely be back.
