I normally check reviews before booking any hotel and was very impressed with the mainly positive reviews of this hotel. I availed of a one night dinner, bed and breakfast offer for a Sunday. The hotel doesn't look great from the outside but decided not to let first impressions put me off. Check in was poor. It just adds nothing... More

As we did last year, we went to the Prince of Wales hotel in Athlone, to celebrate our wedding anniversary. Last year, we had a great time, receiving great hospitality, including a complimentary bottle of bubbly to mark our occasion. As returning customers, we got a great deal, and a beautiful room as well. Once again, we received a complimentary... More

Friendly staff, I stayed on business. Large room with appropriate facilities. Very good complimentary WiFi in the hotel room. Good selection of food in the bar. Great location for browsing the town. Had initial issue with a dirty shower but was upgraded immediately and the new room was clean. Only downside was the noise from beer kegs being unloaded early... More

Have stayed here many many times and love this hotel. Never disappointed. Friendly staff on arrival. Lovely warm clean room. Great food and such value for money. Great hotel for music too. So central in the town. Makes it a great spot for shopping. Five minutes walk from train station. Will be back soon Dol and El. Dublin.
