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

The hotel rooms and reception area are clean, bright and modern. The room was spacious and the price was comparable to other B&Bs we stayed in. It had been recommended by the Tourist Office who booked the room for us. It had parking and we could walk to all the local sights and restaurants. The pub was OK, but nothing... More

Full marks to the receptionist in the Prince of Wales who allowed my husband to check in well in advance of the official time - his appointment was cancelled at the last minute and he was delighted to be accommodated so early in the day. We were very happy with our quiet, comfortable room - not luxurious but very acceptable... More

Nice reception area,dark uninteresting bar. Rooms well equipped but generally awful views. Adequate breakfast, The quality of food in the "Full Irish" better in many other places. Helpful staff and central location.

I booked this hotel because it was within walking distance to everything we wanted to see and reasonably priced. The room was clean and modern. The biggest downfall is that we were up all night because of the club. Without fans or a/c, you need to have the windows open for air, but with the windows open you also can... More

We looked for a place between Dublin and Ballina and were so glad we found this hotel! The town of Athlone looked to be about half way between the 2 cities and I couldn't believe how cheap this hotel was! I believe I got this one through Travelocity at a fantastic rate! Much better than I expected for the price!... More

I would like to recommend the Prince Of Wales hotel to any maids of honour out there planning their bride to be's hen party. I planned my sisters there recently and to this day people are still raving about it! We had the most memorable weekend there and a lot of this was down to amazing staff and facilities made... More
