Have been here several times over the years and our experience has always been good. Staff are always pleasant and welcoming and will go that extra mile. Bus tours are frequent callers so there is always a quiet buzz without being over-powering. Has a quiet relaxed atmosphere which would suit the older generation perhaps. Food was excellent, from breakfast through to dinner--reasonably priced. Swimming pool was basic but adequate for an early morning swim--the fitness suite had all the modern equipment. Rooms were reasonably sized, clean and comfortable. Musical entertainment was provided on 2 or 3 nights per week and was easy to listen too--it stopped about 10.00p.m. so didn't disturb those who were early to bed. All in all a great place to come to chill-out and get away from it all.

Kee's is a very nice hotel, big enough but with intimate atmosphere and great services. Rooms are nice and big and the breakfast is excellent, if you are into a nice Full Irish breakfast!! There was a wedding at the weekend there, but their guests were not so visible to the rest of us. The service is very good too!! So, in general - comes highly recommended!

My Wife and I stayed for the weekend in Kees Hotel and enjoyed a very relaxed time,while attending the Wedding party of a friend. The friendly staff and efficient service made it for us and the room was spacious and comfortable. Food was excellent, both breakfast and the food from the Bar menu.Definitely will have another short break here again.

I have just returned from a 3 night break in the Kees Hotel & we had a wonderful time. The hotel has real old world charm meets country house hotel. The standard of cleanliness is supurb and the rooms are very comfortable, with plenty of space in them.
We had a midweek break of 2 days B & B + 1 3 course Dinner, and as part of the package if you stayed on these terms you got a third night B & B free. Fantastic value for 89E per person sharing. We upgraded to executive rooms and it was well worth it.
Food was delicious and portions were large. Breakfast was a very generous buffet with the usual Irish Breakfast along with fresh fruit, juices, breads, jams, yogurt, cereals, porridge, and my favourite hot pancakes. All served with stacks of hot toast. Literally as much as you could eat. Dinner had plenty of choice and the three course meal we had on our last night was great. Lots of choice and very hearty food.
We ended our evening in the bar having a drink before bed and again lovely atmostphere with a roaring log fire burning. So warm and cosy. The staff in the hotel are very helpful & friendly.
If you are looking for 5 star luxury this is not for you, but it is a really good country hotel with great attention to detail for all their guests. There is a spa & swiming pool but I have to be honest & say I didn't try it, so I can' comment but it is there if you feel like a treat. Treatments have to be booked in advance.
The hotel is well situated with Letterkenny & Donegal town only about an hours drive away. It is a great base to explore Donegal and a lovely much appreciated early Spring Break for me & my parents. We loved it & hopefully will be back next March again.

Room Tip: We upgraded to an executive room & had quiet rooms overlooking the garden of the hotel. Front ro...

I would return. So that's the teller isn't it. My husband booked Kees for the 2 of us and 2 young children. If I'm honest I wouldn't have chosen it. However, the staff were lovely and the hotel had a lovely welcoming charm. The room was definitely dated but really big and really clean (room 310).
My main complaint would be that while the staff were really helpful and friendly they were absolutely run off their feet and I don't think this puts the guest at ease. Most times they had to be called during dinner and they had to respond to us while carrying plates away from another table. They were doing their very best and were very charming but it almost felt like we didn't want to bother them and I didn't love that ! I would imagine that it couldn't cost a whole lot extra to increase the numbers of staff on a shift because it was the same story at breakfast too and there wasn't a huge crowd of guests.
The swimming area while dates, is really user friendly for a family and we really enjoyed it.
Overall I was pleasantly surprised and my children loved it so we will return.

My Fiance and myself just spent 3 fantastic days here from Sunday 16th March which fell into the St Patricks Bank Holiday weekend. Even though when we arrived and the hotel was packed from wedding guests from the day before plus the many families enjoying the bank hol weekend we were still met with the familiar outstanding customer service we always receive here. The Management of the hotel speaks for itself, everyone who works here always comes across as happy and friendly and this is what sets the hotel high above the rest in the surrounding area. We have been going for winter breaks here for many years and we always feel totally relaxed here. The food is excellent and even though the restaurant was full on Sunday evening we still received excellent food and service and this is all down to the staff who are led by a lovely gentleman who I think is the restaurant manager . This is a traditional hotel, it suits us as we do not like modern fancy hotels. We are looking forward to our next break probably in the summer, all in all a great break! Oh yes big thanks to Vicky for showing us around one of the rooms used for weddings as we are thinking of holding our big day here!

We stayed here with our 3 young children and another family with children. Great value. Food (dinner and breakfast) were excellent, service was first class - nothing was too much bother. Staff were very helpful.
We used the pool / jacuzzi twice and had it to ourselves
