“Fabulous Hotel”
Reviewed 21 August 2014

We stayed here for 2 nights and this is a fabulous hotel. Rooms are well appointed, clean and quiet. It is located about a 15 minute walk from the city center. The front desk staff is amazing. Very helpful.

We just returned from a week in Ireland and the Brook Lane was one of the highlights. As mentioned in other reviews, the staff was wonderful --- friendly, helpful and accommodating, and the food was excellent. We traveled with our two teenagers and had adjacent rooms. The rooms were very nice and the bathrooms spacious. The location was great -- just outside of town, about a 5 minute walk on a path (not main roads), with plenty of parking. Highly recommend.

I was here last Christmas and two things struck me as being really good here: the food and the staff. Great breakfast, bar food with good produce and good choice. The staff are extremely pleasant at all times, just a very nice manner. The rooms were good standard modern hotel rooms, very nice. I'm only knocking off a point because while the location is very convenient, it's very near a busy junction. However, at least you know that as you go in. This hotel is excellent.

The staff and meal were exceptional. The food was perfectly cooked. The rooms are very nice and quite large for Ireland. This was by far the nicest property we stayed at in Ireland. Una and her staff are exceptional.

The staff at this hotel are very warm and friendly. The bar food is fantastic - both my husband and me felt our meals were just perfect. The bedrooms and bathroom are lovely and very spacious. We did raise one problem and the attitude of the staff was excellent. It is only a five minute walk to Kenmare town by a lane that takes you away from the bustle of the main road.

And that is the real thing that let's this hotel down from a five star to a four star. You are on top of the main road and there is no place to sit outside and enjoy a view. Even if they could put up a decking area that sectioned you off from the road - it might help. It was a beautiful warm evening and we could not really enjoy our drink outside.

However, this may not bother other people - it's just that we like to enjoy summer evenings. I would happily stay in this hotel again but maybe more in the autumn or winter.

I couldn't fault this hotel. The staff are more than accommodating and the hotel is in a prime location with a pleasant, short stroll to town. We stayed at Brook Lane for two nights. Great memories. Thank you.
