Reviewed 31 July 2006

SheenView is clean and new, and the hostess is warm and friendly. This B&B is located about 5 minutes drive from the Kenmare village. The location was quiet and peaceful, though I would have preferred to be within easy walking distance to the town centre (especially since parking there can be difficult). Our bedroom was in the wood panel loft and was opposite a small sitting room. The sitting room was the only upstairs room with a small view from a small window. It was equiped with a TV and tea and coffee making facilities, and a selection of books and magazines. The bedroom was large with both a queen and single bed. The shower was ok (difficult to regulate temperature and little water pressure), and the toilet was difficult to flush. The sleigh bed frame was new, but I suspect that the mattress was not. The pillows were small, and the bed was made up with only a heavy winter weight duvet. A flat sheet and lighter weight duvet would have made for more comfortable summer sleeping. The room would probably be warm and cozy in winter, but I would have preferred somewhere with higher ceilings so I didn't hit my head getting out of bed. Breakfast was disappointing. I had the porriage with Baileys, which was pleasant and distinctively Irish (again would have been wonderful on a cold winter morning). My partner's scrambled eggs were served on untoasted bread and were accompanied by small shreds of salmon (as compared to the two generous slices of smoked salmon provided for breakfast at other B&Bs visited). Other guests ordered the continential breakfast and were given a large dinner plate that showed off the very small portions of cheese and single piece of ham. Their faces told the story as they shuffled food amongst themselves trying to ensure everyone had enough to eat. The potential of this B&B has yet to be realized.

We at SheenView take exception to the above review and have checked all our records and can find NO people who stayed in SheenView that came from London Via Trip Advisor and hence are at a loss as to how they could review our B&B.
We have a Guest register with many many glowing appraisals of the service we offer and provide. Teh B&B is advertised as being outside Kenmare so how the people can complain that it was not in town is beyond me ?
As for the lounge having a "small window with a small view" the upstairs lounge has a approx 5' X 4' Window with unrivalled views of the Macgillicuddy Reeks including Carrantuohill Irelands highest mountain at 3314 ft being right in the middle of the window ! Have a look at our web site photo's to see for yourself
As for Breakfast If the lady though the porridge was better for winter time then why did she order it in July ??
We can only assume that this was one couple which spent one night with us having been passed on from another B&B in Kenmare, maybe they were disappointed at having to move ?
We can HONESTLY state that NO complaint was registered at the time or privately since so to publish this type of poisonous opinion is very vindictive and uncalled for

Please check us out for yourselves and see how wrong they are

Regards

Peter & Amanda (Owners of SheenView B&B)
