“EXCELLENT HEN PARTY!”
Reviewed May 3, 2013

I stayed here for one night as part of a group for a hen party. The hotel and staff were very friendly and helpful. Its located in the centre of town with onsite parking (included) and a shopping centre underneath so VERY handy! Breakfast was delicious with a great selection. VERY NICE HOTEL, would definitely recommend!

We held our wedding in The Sheraton Athlone in April. It was a fantastic experience from start to finish and would 100% recommend it as a night away or a wedding venue. There is a very high level of customer care from every member of staff including the reception and bar staff as well as the managerial. We have stayed and ate in numerous hotels over the years and I have to say the standard of food in the Sheraton is way above any I've had in other hotels and the day of the wedding was no different even though they were catering for nearly 300 people. Absolutely fantastic and all the guests that I spoke to thought the same. The rooms are gorgeous very modern, clean and spacious. We had the penthouse suite the night of the wedding and it is amazing very luxurious and everything you need is in it. We also ate in the bar before we had booked our wedding and the food there is very tasty with a nice menu. I really don't have one bad thing to say about the hotel there was no faults in all the months we dealt with them just complete satisfaction and I can't wait to return!!

We had a large party staying in April to celebrate our parents 50th Anniversary and really enjoyed our time in the hotel. Rooms were very spacious, all enjoyed pool and amenities and the meal on Sat night was really lovely and we were put in a section of the restaurant at the back which had us all together which was perfect. Very central location and as it's right over the shopping centre, it was great for our teens to go out and about without getting lost or too far out of sight. One of the nicest features though was the hotel staff who couldn't have been nicer or more eager to please, from the bar staff, & receptionists, & restaurant staff. I'd definately recommend the hotel and will be back for sure:-)

I stayed here with a friend for 2 nights last week. Very central location. We had dinner in the restaurant one night and in the bar the other - could not fault anything, food excellent and staff and service excellent. Spent second day in the spa and leisure area and had treatments. Would highly recommend this hotel.

Stayed with three of my children over the half term. One if my boys was on crutches and in a plaster cast having broken his leg prior to the holiday. He was devastated that he might not be able to use the pool but the staff were brilliant in helping to get him in and out of the pool. All the gym staff could not have been more helpful.
The room was brilliant and very good value. It was a joy to stay at this hotel. We enjoyed our stay there and only encountered friendly helpful cheerful staff. If we can get as good a deal again we will be definitely coming back.

Dear “SukeyP”,
Thank for taking the time to provide such a positive review of our hotel and for choosing to stay at The Sheraton Athlone Hotel.
Time spent away with our families is extremely precious and I am delighted to read that the hotel team helped you to enjoy this special time.
I was particularly delighted to read that you found the team in Sheraton Fitness to be so helpful and please give our best to your son, who I hope is recovering well.
Ross and his team in the leisure provide a wonderful service down in Sheraton Fitness (except perhaps when they are torturing people in Spin Classes…) and it is great for them to have this recognized on Tripadvisor.
We look forward to welcoming you and your family back soon, and I am pleased to say that there are some great value packages on offer for families this summer, many including one of several family activities in Athlone or the surrounding Lakelands with our compliments.
Yours Sincerely,
Johnny O’Sullivan,

Stayed recently with a group of girls on a hen night, had a wonderful stay, very well looked after from checking in to departing. Food was fantastic and a great athmosphere in the place. Only down side was finding somewhere to pull up outside with a bus, minor problem really for anybody with a car as there is a carpark part of the shopping center.
