We had a man walk into our room using a key card. He disappeared very quickly once he realised there was someone in the room. Not sure what might have happened if... More

Central location, parking on site but usually full car park. Receptionists friendly. Room clean & decent size. Needed an early night but didn't get the sleep I desired. From 10 pm onwards - (for an eternity) the noise, music, boom, laughter & loud talk bellowed through the room & corridor. 3 hours later before I could force myself to sleep... More

Hotel is centrally located in Athlone so able to walk around town, see sights and check out other places that Hotel Staff recommended. Rooms were spacious and comfortable... More

Recently stayed in this hotel with my mum as we were visiting family in Athlone. Great central location. We got a good deal for 1 nights B&B with a 2 course bar meal included for 110 euro. Our twin room was spotlessly clean and spacious, nicely decorated. Great heavily lined curtains to block out the light were a bonus. Plenty... More
