We found our weekend stay in the Kees Hotel to be one of the most comfortable hotels in Ireland. The food was excellent, the rooms clean ,bathroom spotless and a great pool to relax in. The weekend break was a present from my friends and was an offer in the Sunday Life(which was a great way to promote the hotel.) It is situated not far from shops and sight seeing and will be on my list of breaks to come.

Room Tip: check the offers in local papers

I stayed here for 2 nights recently on a business trip. For the same price as a single occupancy in other hotels in the area, I was able to secure a suite in Kee's Hotel. The room itself was very nice, with a large, comfortable bed, separate living room, and a large bathroom. The floorboards in the corridor outside the bedroom, however, were very creaky, and the walls are paper thin, so unfortunately you could hear everyone going past the room (but ear-plugs sorted that out for me).

The breakfast was very good, with good quality cooked-food, and a wide selection of cereals, fruits & juices.

I felt that the leisure centre was a little dated, but as this is officially classified as a 3* hotel (and bearing in mind the relative cost compared to other local hotels), it was perfectly fine.

There were really only 2 negatives for me about the hotel. Firstly (and this is a bit petty), the bar only has a small tv in the corner, and they had no sports channels (which for me helps pass the time while away on business, but as I said, it's a petty thing). Secondly, there is no WIFI in any of the rooms, and even around the lobby there are limited areas you can access the internet (e.g. the bar & restaurant are dead zones, so you pretty much have to be within 20-30 feet of reception to pick up a signal). This is a real headache when you need to spend a couple of hours online.

However, if you don't care about sports channels & internet access, this hotel certainly delivers the best value for money in the area, and I thoroughly recommend it.

Stayed February 2012, traveled on business

Thank you for posting your review. I am glad you enjoyed your stay with us. As regards the creaky floors and thin walls, I must mention in their defence that they have been en situ for some two centuries at least, ( that's the trouble with some of these old buildings!) Perhaps the atmosphere is some consolation! Hope to see you on your next business trip. Kind Regards Paul (Patton)
