Staff was polite but not very friendly. The room was spacious and ensuite was ok . Breakfast limited in choice : no cheese, poor choice of bread and marmelade. Good choice in hot breakfast The town of Kenmare was a 5 mins stroll away and worth the walk. Ok to stay over but would not specially recommend it.

My family recently visited the Health Club and we were very impressed. My daughter was a bit cautious of the water but a lifeguard called Laura came over and gave her a float and encouraged her to try it. She really took an interest in my daughters enjoyment and I felt it really left a good impression on us. We...

We stayed in a room on the second floor. The room itself was fine, but it was very noisy during the early hours of the morning. Obviously friends/family were staying in adjacent rooms on the floor, and they were in and out of each others rooms at very unsociable times from 5.15 a.m. onwards, talking and laughing very loudly, banging...

I fell in love with the view and sight of this hotel. There is a lift, but some rooms are accessible by climbing the stairs. There is a pub and restaurant.
