“Refreshing Stay”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 September 2012

We had just come off a bus tour and this was our first hotel picked on our own. Wonderfully inviting with great staff. Came to help us with our luggage, went up to the room with us and showed us in. We were just sorry that we weren't staying longer. Breakfast the next morning was excellent and staff quietly available for our every need. Loved the fact that it was a quick 5 minute walk to town via a lovely path directly across from the hotel.

Brook Lane Hotel was a random choice - had never heard of it before. This small hotel (20+ rooms) scores top marks under the headings of friendliness of management and staff, cleanliness, convenient and quiet location, and bed comfort. Their response when we requested an additional power outlet was swift and satisfactory. They have a fine restaurant and bar, which I didn't expect in a hotel of this size. Location is a 10 min walk from the town centre, and Kenmare is ideally situated at the junction of the Iveragh Peninsula (Ring of Kerry) and the equally beautiful Beara Peninsula. A most enjoyable 3-night stay.

This Hotel deserves its reputation as best hotel in Kenmare. We found it clean and cosy and very good value for money. The bar is beautifully appointed and we dropped in each night of our stay after dinner in Kenmare for a nightcap. The breakfast was wonderful, great choices and fast and efficient.

The only minor gripes we would have is there is no complimentary water in the room, it is usually nice to have a glass of water by your bedside during the night. Also, we found that the pressure in our shower was very weak, unsure if this was just an issue with our room (206) or throughout the hotel.

All in all a very pleasant stay.

Thank you for your lovely review and comments,the water in the bedrooms comes from a natural spring about 10 km for the Hotel in the Mountains towards Killarney ,It is totally safe to drink and there are some glasses in each Bathroom If we have the pleasure of welcoming you back ,we can have some bottled water in your room if you prefer,we checked the water pressure in you room and all seems fine .The entire building works under the same pressure,so not sure what happened here

We booked the Brook Lane Hotel for one night to start our trip around the Ring of Kerry. We decided to travel clockwise around the Ring which turned out great and the Brook Lane was a perfect place to stay the night before. The hotel seems new, was a short walk from town, and there is an adjoining restaurant next door if you don't want to walk into town. The neighborhood surrounding the hotel is very nice and quiet for a good night's sleep. If you travel clockwise around the Ring like we did, just get an early start at 8:30am and you will likely miss all of the busses traveling counter clockwise on the narrow roads. Because we also did the Skellig Ring, which the coaches cannot travel on, we did not see a single bus on our drive!

At a wedding there recently and i must admit i was gobsmacked.The hotel was beautiful outside and inside.The staff were amazing with all our needs and not to mention the food.I bet Homer Simpson would be drooling at the tantilising menu and believe me the chefs lived up to it with very fine dining.The rooms are what you would expect in a fine hotel clean and comfortable and so comfortable that two guests slept it out and were still served breakfast at NOON.Now thats what you call service.......So cheers to the Brook Lane Hotel
