Reviewed 20 November 2017 via mobile

Ideal location for a stay in Athlone. Within walking distance of most places and the train station is 5mins walk. Breakfast is as good if not better than most places. Avril couldn't have done enough for us.

Well located near to town. Rooms nice clean spacious. Check in very good. Bar Staff was a bit under par as compared to rest. Car park is good too. Over all relaxed stay and good value for two night stay.

Fantastic pool with view to the Shannon, Beautiful lounge with a reasonable different meal deal every day. Lovely staff. And what a view from the window overlooking the boats on the Shannon and St Peter and Paul's Church lit at night. Central and lovely walks on the river. Also, it is a nice day trip to Knock Shrine with the quiet Centre of Reconciliation and lovely Basilica

Room Tip: Ask for a room with the view to the Shannon

quick check in and out, good price for a 4 star hotel, perfectly located in town centre and a nice view on the river.
bedroom was nice, however the bathroom wasn't cleaned properly with water stains all over the shower glass.

My husband and I recently had a two night stay here with our 2 year old daughter.

The location is good with a reasonable amount of parking.

Our room, billed as a Junior Suite, was nothing special although it did have a nice river view. It could have been cleaner too, in particular the ensuite, which had water stains all over the tiles and shower door.

When we arrived, the camp bed we had requested for our daughter had not been provided so we had to wait for it to be set up. There weren't enough towels provided either. A cleaning cloth was left behind in the bathroom on the second day.

We ate in the bar area on two occasions during our stay and had dinner in the dining room on one evening (included in the package) as well as breakfast on both mornings. The food was good but service in the bar was terrible with unnecessarily long delays to be served and mistakes like requested items being forgotten. In addition there were a few small issues you would not expect in a 4 star hotel such as no fishbowl glasses for gin available in the bar and the incorrect tonic served on two separate occasions.

The high point of our stay was the dining room staff who were all lovely, very friendly and helpful and especially attentive to our young daughter, which was much appreciated. The staff in other areas of the hotel would do well to take a leaf out of their book.

We used the leisure centre but found the pool temperature very cold and unsuitable for our daughter so we didn't stay long. The changing rooms were also very cold.

This hotel needs to pay closer attention to the small details to make sure guests have a pleasant stay and return.
