Arrived late on the Friday evening (11pm) checked in and told the chap on reception I'd love a cup of tea. He asked would I like anything to eat and I said toasted cheese would be perfect - never thinking for a moment it would be supplied. 20 minutes later, tea and toast arrived with us. Superb. We were there... More

we stayed here for the weekend, bedroom was lovely and big also the staff are very nice. The barfood was excellent But the only thing i didnt like was the buffet breakfast i thought was poor as the time you wait for your bread to toast the rest was cold.Also the breakfast choices you had were not great.

Just returned from another lovely stay. Staff were very helpful as always. Very good at responding to our requests. Lovely breakfast and we had a nice lunch there. Great value and location but it was very noisy on Saturday night with loud music until 3.30 am on Sunday morning which meant we didn't get any sleep until the party-goers eventually... More

We stayed last Monday night in a family room, it was quiet as there was no weddings booked in at the time. Our room was directly over the main entrance. I would not book this room if there was a wedding or function booked as I would say you would hear the noise been located so close to the front... More

We almost didn't walk in. The outside of this property is misleading. The inside is very nice, front desk staff couldn't be more helpful. It is a nice walk from City Center (no more than 10 minutes) good sites along the way (Athlone Castle, Shannon River) Reasonably priced and the rooms were clean and quite large. No A/C though, not...

This hotel is off the beaten track but a short walk to town. We stayed in a two bedroom suite that also had a large sitting room and paid only $100 a night. It was a good space but the entire place has a tired feeling to it. It may just be that I had no clue how to regulate... More
