I recently attended a wedding in Kinsale and stayed in Room 20 (Single Room) of the Blue Haven Hotel Kinsale. On first impressions of the hotel and accommodation I was impressed. The service and the attitude of the staff was impressive as was all the facilities in the hotel, breakfast, comfort and hospitality. However, I don't know whether the worse rooms are reserved for single people (who have less of a voice than 2 people), as I discovered that in Room 20 the shower was luke warm at the most, the kettle didn't work and cold air came in through a window that wouldn't close. This made what should have been a comfortable stay uncomfortable and I was highly disappointed as it wasn't what I was expecting at all. It's fair to say that friends (couples) who were staying in other rooms in this hotel had a fabulous experience without any of the draw backs I experienced. To be honest my experience would make me think twice about staying here again as unfortunately it appeared to me that the worse rooms are being offered out to single people and to experience this being followed through into the quality of accommodation offered is very disappointing. I certainly wouldn't hesitate by saying it is worthwhile place to stay & visit but whatever you do, if you are a single person don't stay in Room 20 of this hotel.
