Nice hotel, bar area and outdoor terrace overlooking the River. Staff polite, but could be more trained when things do not work correctly. Leisure area looking a bit tired, bits missing in the steam room, lockers that would not lock etc. Nice depth of pool, but a jucuzzi instead of poolside loungers would be a big improvement. Bedrooms were bright... More

I stayed here for a girls night out and booked the 'the crunchie it's Friday' deal online. With this deal you are supposed to get two crunchies (haha) and a 'starter plate' with two cocktails. We were a bit disappointed that we never actually received the crunchies and the starter plate turned out to be a small meal for one... More

The room decor is very modern, with excellent attention to detail & everything you need. The bed was extremely comfortable. The staff in the hotel are fast, really friendly and seem to enjoy their work! With excellent value for July at €69 mid week room only rate, we decided to stay an extra night, and we were very glad we... More

This is the second visit to this Hotel and the whole experience was fabulous. Our group had a range of ages. The accommodation, restaurants and bars excellent. Staff friendly and helpful. Location with terrace on the banks of the River Shannon, Situated in the centre of Athlone close to Restaurant and Bars and shopping.

Basic hotel somewhat characterless and bland. Rooms were clean but there was no air conditioning and our room was uncomfortably hot. Windows were dirty. Our room overlooked the street and it was very noisy with stag and hen parties, lots of swearing and raucous behaviour. Breakfast was awful, most of the food was very greasy. Bread was in loaves which... More

An excellent location at the river in Athlone with access to the town and walks along the river, over to the castle and to the shopping centre in the historic quarter. Food is reasonable in the restaurant, fairly standard, but a few nice restaurants nearby. Be sure to visit the castle. Rooms spacious and clean. Well kept and staff generally... More

No wonder this hotel gets so many great reviews as it well deserves them, great location, super staff, spotlessly clean room and bathroom. Car parking can be a problem when the hotel is busy, would definitely recommend here to anyone looking for accommodation in Athlone.
