This is an ideal place for some quiet relaxation. You are assured of a warm, friendly welcome. The comfortable restaurant serves a wide variety of great food. If you prefer a more relaxed meal Harry’s Bar is spacious and offers a wide choice. Situated amidst the beauty of south-east Donegal, it is entirely your decision to get out and about or take it easy in the Hotel surrounds. Some rooms overlook Main Street, others overlook the garden and further to hills. For the more energetic there is a small gym and a swimming pool and jacuzzi for the use of all guests. Spa facilities are available at a cost. A pleasant walk takes you over the River Finn bridge to the twin town of Ballybofey, where you will find attractive shops and restaurants. If energy permits, the return walk through Drumboe Wood is thoroughly enjoyable. A very enjoyable drive west, through Barnesmore Gap, is the County town, Donegal, again with interesting shops and restaurants, a lot of history and a most enjoyable river/shore-side walk with lovely views. If time allows en-route, take the very scenic drive around Lough Eske, with opportunities to enjoy hotel facilities. A short, perhaps less interesting drive north from Kees is Letterkenny which again has a good range of shopping and restaurants. A very scenic tour from the hotel is to travel west through Donegal town to Bruckless, then north to Ardara and Glenties, and return to Stranorlar by second-class roads through the beautiful hills. Hill walkers will be spoilt for choice, with many geocaches for followers of this hobby. Further afield county Donegal has a multitude of beautiful strands, you choose to laze or exercise.
The hotel is family-run and it shows in the personal attention given to guests. The rooms are well furnished and comfortable. Guests have use of a comfortable open lounge and the bar area (with two large open fires in colder weather). We have stayed here several times and always look forward to coming back, which we have just done (Nov 2014), and now look forward to being back.
For those travelling from further afield Donegal Airport is less than an hour away with connections daily from Dublin and Glasgow.
