My job requires that I spent over 70% of my life in hotels, in all corners of the globe. After a while, they all seem the same. In August this year, a family wedding brought me back to my native Donegal and I decided to base myself in Kee's Hotel.
I spent 6 blissfully relaxing nights at the friendly family-run hotel, and enjoyed traditional hospitality of a variety I hadn't experienced for too long. My room was spacious, impeccably clean and furnished in an inviting traditional style. The bed was comfortable, and the bathroom unusually large. I had wireless internet access and a comfortable chair and desk that allowed me to keep in touch with the office. From my room I looked over the back patio.
The food and the people at Kees are what defines the place. Given that my focus was on relaxing, I never surfaced early enough for breakfast, but I did enjoy both lunch and dinner in the restaurant. The dinner menu had both traditional and more exotic offerings and the food and service were top-notch. Sunday brunch in the carvery was also great, and the large crowd was surely a testament to its popularity. The apple crumble and custard reminded me of times past, although the profiteroles may have stolen the show!
The front desk staff were always friendly and helpful, and Arthur the night porter must surely have decided I was a party animal as I combined my lazy mornings with late nights!
I would have no hestitation in recommending Kee's Hotel and look forward to my next visit.
