Stayed here for one night on bank holiday weekend. It is a lovely place. In central Athlone. Great bars and great rooms. Very reasonably priced. The bar was buzzing. Definitely recommend this hotel for accommodation and location.

We were on a day out in Athlone. Called in for a drink. Girl serving was very friendly. Chairs were very grubby..lots of crumbs stuck in back of chair. Table needed a good clean. We did not order any food. Would not rush back.

We stayed here on a Sunday and Monday night. There was traditional entertainment on the Sunday evening. Talented musicians and some great Irish Dancers. What a lovely hotel. Very comfortable, brilliant location right in centre of the town. Room was lovely. Food great. Staff friendly. We will be back.

Thank UOH
