Rooms large, clean and airy. Great location overlooking lake with easy access to golf, fitness and spar centre and Viking boat ride to Athlone! Meeting facilities very good and meals excellent. Breakfast outstanding with well cooked but not overheated and dry options. Staff very attentive and helpful - would like to stay there on a short break.

A nice hotel that had great meals including breakfast which was had good variety, the bowl of porridge smothered in Irish whiskey is a hit at 9am😋 Don't hold your breath for a car park cos every man and his dog take all the carpark spaces.

The staff could not have been more accommodating friendly and polite. From my first dealings with William in reservations to Declan on arrival, Aileen and Paula and front of... More
