We only stayed for one night but will be back. Vicki on reception was so friendly and helpful - a great first impression! The room was comfortable (as was the bed). We had a nice meal in the bar and were impressed with the quality and quantity of the vegetables as well as the rest of the meal. The bar... More

I stayed here recently with my husband. The staff were very friendly on check in and upgraded our room as we had just been married a week. We had a very big suite, with a lovely bottle of champers and a note in the room for us. The bar was lovely, bar food very good. Our room was very quiet... More

We paid €140 for 1 night. We had a few drinks in bar which was grand, but when it closed early we were told niteclub down stairs. They were looking for €7 each for residents...!!!!! Come on, we've paid €140, lots more in bad for food/drink and now rip us off to move to residents/disco.

From the moment of walking in the door the service was superb. Nothing was too much trouble. It is located in the centre of Athlone and so it would be easy to eat out, however the hotel bar and restaurant are so good you need not go anywhere. The room was excellent and cleanliness was of the highest standard. The... More

We stayed at this hotel for my sisters hen party during the October Bank Holiday weekend. It was a great choice. The hotel staff were excellent and made my work as chief bridesmaid very easy. The location of the hotel was great, but we didn't have to venture too far outside the hotel grounds on the night. The Prince Bar... More
