Stayed overnight in this hotel after getting a very good deal on the internet. Decided to have a shopping trip so picked Athlone.

The room was lovely and warm; the shower huge but a problem with the plug hole,... More

Just back from my hen party and I could not say a bad word about this hotel. From the moment we arrived we were so well looked after, the hotel was packed but they were so efficient. Food was quick and delicious, there was a staff member to greet us at each point of the night to bring us to... More

Dead center to town, across from a lovely Church, this hotel was a perfect spot for exploring Athlone. Everything is this nice old Irish town is walkable, from the quain stores, to the Castle museum, to the oldest bar in Europe , Sean's Bar.

From the very beginning the staff at this hotel were amazing, answering every email as soon as possible even if my reply was slower. They couldn't do enough for us in the planning stages and were so understanding as people changed their minds about the weekend. They sorted out our booking for the CSI Save the Groom, and everything there... More
