With the exception of the first woman at reception, we had a nice stay here. She seemed befuddled about finding a copy of a map of the city, and making recommendations for dining, outside the hotel. Our room was clean and modern. Athlone is a perfect location for taking a day trip to the monastic site of Clonmacnoise.

I have been a few times for lunch and while the food is nice, I feel they scrimp on it somewhat, I have left still hungry more than once. even a sandwich is quite short on ingredients, I would recommend it for a night out though.

The Prince of Wales is a very pleasant hotel with modern and spacious bedrooms. Very comfortable room. We had booked a dinner/B&B package and just to say that the dinner was very good. Also the breakfast was in its "full Irish" version very tasty. There was limited selection as for "continental style" breakfast if that is your thing. There were... More

She back out and her response was: 'Yeah the... More

We stayed in room 226 , a nice clean comfortable room with plenty of space, the bathroom was spotless with a great shower over the bath. Our only complaint was the room was... More

Just back from a weekend to celebrate my mums birthday. What a lovely hotel with staff that are so friendly, welcoming and obliging. We ate in both the restaurant and the bar during our stay and the food was delicious with a great choice to suit all tastes. Rooms are lovely and very well equipped. Will definitely be returning.
