Reviewed 18 November 2010

this is one hotel i cant wait to go back to!! we went there for my friends 40th as a surprise for her. the hotel staff really did their best to make it special for her. we stayed in the studio which was really nice, quiet with very comfy beds. the other rooms we saw the next morning were very pretty and colourful too, which makes a nice change in Irish hotels. the dinner was very good as was the breakfast. all in all it was very good value and convenient to the town.the staff were cheerful, extremely friendly and very efficient. its hard to fault this gem!

I am just back from a weekend in Kenmare with my women friends. We stayed at the wonderful Brook Lane Hotel. I cannot praise the staff enough. They were without exception, courteous, friendly and helpful and just could not do enough for us. We ate in the hotel on the Friday night and the food in the bar was delicious. Breakfast was also very good, plenty of choice and lots of nice fresh fruits etc. This is a boutique hotel and as such does not have the bells and whistles of the bigger hotels, do not let that put you off. It is a very stylish and comfortable hotel. Bedrooms were a fine size, spotlessly clean and though there was no tea/coffee making facilities in the room, room service delivered tea and coffee at any time and this was a complimentary service which was fabulous. Bathrooms were also spotless, with good powerful showers and nice toiletries, one very minor quibble, the lighting in the bathroom could have been better especially for a group of women who were all putting on make up but as I say this is a minor quibble indeed. I will certainly stay here the next time I am in Kenmare.

Thank You for you comments I am delighted you enjoyed your stay with us in Brook Lane Hotel
sorry about the lighting in your bathroom ,we were doing a trial with some led lighting as we are part of the green business tourism programme on the Ring of Kerry supported by Failte Ireland ,I don't think these led bulbs are good enough yet ,but will probably improve with time We have the Christmas decorations up around the hotel and the fires are blazing ,so hope to see you again on your next visit to kenmare Thanks Una

We loved this hotel from the moment we arrived. The rooms were lovely, as was the rest of the hotel. The food was delicious and served with a smile. The staff helped us a lot regarding places to see and of interest, infact three days wer'nt long enough for all the suggestions. Siobhan was especially knowledgeable, would definately return on our next viait to Ireland

What a lovely experience. If every hotel or b&b stay could be as pleasant as our stay in brook lane, Ireland would start to recover its reputation as being a country synonymous with top notch hospitality. From start to finish we had a lovely time. I happened to mention on email that we were celebrating my husband's birthday - when we were enjoying our meal on arrival on Friday night, what a pleasant surprise for the manager to arrive along with a dessert with a birthday candle stuck in it & the staff to sing happy birthday to mark the occasion! Little simple touches like that really make this hotel stand out in its service standard. The hotel is only 4 mins walk into town for the lovely pubs & restaurants of lovely Kenmare. The only negative thing I'd mention is that the room was a little stuffy & our room was right on the corner so the traffic passing caused a bit of noise with the window open. But this small downside wouldn't put me off staying here - I'd certainly recommend to a friend (and have done already). The value for money was good too. So thank you pat for your top notch hospitality during our stay - we'll certainly stay in brook lane again when we return to lovely Kenmare. ;)

We stayed for 2 nights and were very impressed with the hotel. Hard to put into words, it just had a nice feel to it, staff were great.
We had a quiet large room on the 1st floor, nice big bathroom and comfy bed. Only downside for us was no tea or coffee making facilities in the room, there was an offer for free room service for this but we didn't feel right asking.
We ate in the bar and the food was great, no too expensive and a good choice, all freshly prepared. Breakfast service seemed slow but when the food came it was worth the wait and it was all freshly cooked which explained the wait.
5 or 6 minute walk into town in a nice quiet place.

Thank you for your lovely review about our hotel, I am delighted you enjoyed your stay. From a hygiene point of view we decided not to have tea and coffee facilities in all our bedrooms, we do however offer complimentary fresh tea and coffee to all our guests, as mentioned in our Guest information we can also facilitate any guest with tea, coffee making facilities in their room on request, so please let us know on your next visit . Breakfast is served from 8am till 11am we have a large buffet with cereals, juices yogurts, homemade breads, fruit etc, we cook everything fresh in the kitchen each morning so apologies if there was a slight delay in you cooked breakfast I will pass on you nice comments about your food in Casey's bistro to our Chefs Alan, Benny and Richard

Staying at brook lane was a wonderful experience from first moment to last. the staff are extremely warm, friendly and accommodating. We travelled with our 2 young children (5 & 15 months) and they couldn't do enough from washing bottles to arranging baby sitters to directing us to playgrounds etc and other attractions kids would enjoy. The accommodation was bright and extremely spacious and anything we needed they provided. Great place to stay.

My husband and I had a one night stay mid September. The hotel has the friendliest staff I have ever encountered. They made us feel really at home. The room was lovely,, very comfortable. The Bistro was excellent. I would definitely recommend this hotel to anyone travelling to Kenmare.
