We stayed last holiday week- end at Kee's. Every one was very helpful and friendly from the receptionists to the waitresses. The food was really good. The breakfast was exceptional as was the dinner. Dining-room staff could not have been better.
We have been staying there every year for many years and always think the same that the bedrooms need updating . They have been more or less the same for years. They are quite comfortable very clean but quite basic without any luxuries.
However the hotel has a lovely atmosphere and some where we would like to visit again.

Paul Patton, Marketing and Banqueting Manager at Kee's Hotel, Leisure and Wellness Center, responded to this review. Thank you for posting your review. We very much enjoy reading reviews from our many loyal customers who have been coming to Kee's for years - they are the backbone of our business. I am so glad you enjoyed your recent visit and I note that , while you found your bedroom very clean and comfortable, you would like to see more updating. In fact we do refit and refurbish a number of rooms each year, and have a selection of different types of room on offer, from mini suites with four poster bed, to family rooms over the pool area. Long established family hotels are in the unenviable position of having to compete with hotels built by investors during the 'boom' years. These offer excellent physical features, but may not have the personal attention, dedication and character of the long established family properties. The Kee family ensure that all available resources are ploughed back into the hotel. They and their staff work hard as a team and are dedicated to ensuring guests' comfort and welcome. We very much appreciate your loyalty to this historic hotel and look forward to welcoming you again soon. Kindest Regards Paul (Patton)

We stayed for 2nights on a recent trip with friends. On arrival we were greeted with a smile and a very helpful receptionist who explained all we needed to know about the hotel.Our room was spotlessly clean with a good selection of toiletries . Then it was down to the courtyard were we enjoyed some drinks with other happy guests and friends. Food in both the bar and resturant was fabulous and keenly priced. Used the leisure facilities and enjoyed this aspect the hotel has to offer. Working as a senior manager in this industry I could not fault any of our stay.Thanks to Vikki and all of her team we will be returning in the Autum

Paul Patton, Marketing and Banqueting Mananger at Kee's Hotel, Leisure and Wellness Center, responded to this review. Thank you for posting your review. Always a relief to know that visiting guests who work in the industry themselves have enjoyed their stay with us!!!. The courtyard IS rather a charming spot for the few drams with friends on a good summer evening. Many guests have remarked to us that it gives the feel of a country house hotel in a village setting, perhaps the mature trees. the terraces and the gardens add to this. As well as drinks, light meals are served here, (weather permitting). We look forward to welcoming you to Kee's again in the autumn. Kind Regards Paul (Patton)

Stayed at Kee's Hotel in July for 4 nights on a coach tour. Hotel was very nice with well appointed bedrooms. Food was very good, however the dining room staff were not very friendly..never engaged with us or asked us were we having a good time at any stage which I consider their weak point.

So glad you enjoyed your four days with us here at Kee's, - appreciating the well appointed bedrooms and excellent food. Our restaurant manager Mustapha is very popular with our guests, and expect a high standard from his team of staff - there is a fine line between friendliness and over-familiarity and perhaps his team erred on the side of prudence!!!

My husband and I spend a long weekend here over Valentines. Had a lovely room. Fabulous breakfasts each morning. A fantastic Valentines dinner. We actually enjoyed the food that much in the hotel we ate in it every night. Had the pool to ourselves every time we went down to it which was great! Would say make the water a little warmer and then it would be perfect. Good music in the bar at night and great crack. Will definitely be back for another weekend soon.

Stayed February 2014

We had our wedding reception in this great wedding venue. Paul the Manager helped ease the build up to the day and went out of his way to make the day perfect for us and our wedding guests. On the day everything went flawlessly without and hitches. The staff on the day were top class and nothing was a bother to them.

The family dinner that we had first in the Old Gallery was top class (even offered seconds).
Later when the rest of wedding guests arrive we moved through to the main ballroom which was beautifully layed out, couldn't of imagined it any better ourselves.
The buffet style menu for the evening guests was first class and the service was quick and our guests didnt have to wait long at all.
We would highly recommend this hotel as a wedding venue for any new couples thinking of a wedding venue for their own as it is a great venue with top class service from start to finish with management that go out of their way to make your day special.

Stayed May 2014, travelled with family
