Stayed in this hotel for two nights 31st December, 2012 and 1st January, 2013. I had booked 5 rooms, as there was a large group of us going away for New Years Eve, on arrival I was informed that our rooms had been given to others and that the hotel had tried to contact me even though I had only been on to reception the previous Friday and they had the wrong phone number and e-mail address, even though I had confirmation e-mails from the previous August on my e-mails after booking the rooms.
We were told that the hotel was fully booked, but I argued the point we were after booking last August, eventually they found 4 rooms, and my daughter and her boyfriend had to share with us that night and they got their own room the following night.
The Manager saved the day (Catherine) she was very apologeticand gave us a free drink with our meal, and also gave us starters and dessert and childrens breakfast free.
For the price we paid €89 for 2 nights for 2adults with breakfast and 1 main course evening meal and children were free except for meals. I cannot complain too much but if I had been paying a higher price it would not have been acceptable.
Hotel based in an industrial estate would need transport to get into Athlone town. Top tip before you travel confirm your rooms are still available.
