I stayed for four nights with a golf society. The room was very clean and comfortable, and the staff were very friendly and helpful. Great location for bars and restaurants, and the bar in the hotel was also very good. I would definitely go again and recommend to friends.

My friends took me here last weekend for my hen party. I could not fault one thing about this hotel. Reception staff are so friendly and could not have done enough for our group. The rooms are modern, spacious and very clean. We did a cocktail making class which is the best I've ever done as everyone has there only... More

Spent the night at this hotel and was very impressed. The staff are the friendliest I have ever come across and they were so tentative. There were other hen parties on the same day but every one felt so special. The rooms were great and the location cannot be beaten! The food was delicious and the band and the night... More

Spacious hotel with modern facilities, restaurant and bar in the center of town. Room was immaculate. Beautiful bathroom and shower with multiple heads. Secure parking lot but make sure you get the exit code if you plan to leave early. Helpful restaurant staff opened early for us so we could have breakfast before leaving to catch our flight. Highly recommended!!

Once again a very enjoyable stay at The Prince of Wales. Very pleasant and helpful staff both on reception and in the bar. Food in the bar was as always delicious. Breakfast was excellent and again staff very pleasant and friendly. Many thanks to Padraig and his team.

We are regular visitors to Athlone and had never stayed in the Prince of Wales before. What a pleasant surprise! The staff were excellent. The room was lovely and had air conditioning. Impeccably clean. Wonderful shower and what a relief, no bath:) The only reason we didn't give it 5 stars was the parking, which was minimal, get there early... More

Went for bar food here last week. Very nice. However ordered a sparkling water ,cost E2.60 which was fine.. asked for dash of lime in it, charged an extra 80 cent,, total cost of my non alcoholic little drink E3.40...very unfair to charge that much for a dash. Would understand if it was a glass of tap water with a... More

Cannot highly recommend the Prince of Wales enough after a two night stay for my hen weekend which was a group of girls aged from 27 - 50 (average age was 40). The hotel itself is very clean, nicely decorated and rooms are very comfortable. First night we had a slumber party which went down a treat with all the... More
