We had our wedding at the Sheraton Athlone in July this year. From the time we booked our wedding the previous year, the hotel wedding team were fantastic to us and were beyond helpful. The day itself was fantastic, from the arrivals reception on the roof top garden to the beautiful Hoey Suite and the amazing food, we had a really super day. The staff were excellent and very friendly on the day to all our guests, the bedrooms are lovely, very comfortable and airy, and the hotel itself is modern and immaculately kept.

We had a good few quests stay over for a few nights at the hotel as they were travelling and they have all said how amazing the hotel was and how great and helpful the staff were, they all thoroughly enjoyed their stay and have said they would definitely return to the Sheraton Hotel. We honestly could not recommend this hotel highly enough to anyone thinking of a stay over in Athlone or indeed anyone planning a wedding in the area.

We arrived before check in time on a busy Saturday afternoon but our room was ready and we were immediately given our key. Reception staff were efficient, friendly and helpful. Our deluxe room was in the tower, 8th floor, room 461, with a beautiful view over the Shannon River. Floor to ceiling windows allowed a wonderful panoramic view. The room design was perfect with enough space and storage for everything and the small fridge (the only room on our Ireland tour that had one) was handy. The king size bed was super comfy, the large bathroom had a good size shower stall and a separate tub. The soundproofing was excellent, the hotel was full and we were situated right next to the elevator and did not hear a thing. The A/C worked well.

The hot and cold breakfast buffet was excellent and the evening we had dinner in the bar the food was very good. Every staff member we encountered was friendly and helpful, in a genuine way. We ordered a bucket of ice for the room, this was promptly delivered and shortly thereafter reception called to make sure that we had received it.

The location is excellent with the shopping center complex at your feet and the distilleries at Kilbeggan and Tullamore very near. If you visit the distilleries on a Sunday, keep in mind no tasting or purchases can be made before noon. Near Tullamore we came across Charleville Castle which is in the process of being restored by volunteers. It is certainly worth a visit.

The Sheraton Athlone is an excellent hotel and we would definitely return when in the area. In fact we would drive out of our way to stay here again.

Room Tip: A deluxe room in the tower is good value.

My wife & i stayed here last weekend. We wer v happy with the hotel & wer v happy with our experience of the hotel & athlone itself. The hotel decor was v nice & modern looking. The bed was one of the most comfortable ive slept on & the bathrooms wer probably the best we have had in standard rooms. The hotel location was perfect for us - right in the centre of athlone. There was 2 weddings during our stay but noise was not an issue. The gym/fitness area was well equipped & the pool was excellent. Staff were friendly. My only issue was that they tried to charge us for breakfasts which were paid for at the time of booking. This was resolved when i showed them my confirmation email. Accidents will happen & it in no way spoiled our stay. We plan to return.

We traveled down for a Saturday night and there were 4 of us. We took a room only rate and really enjoyed the night. It is located within the new Athlone Town centre complex so its perfect it some want to pop to the shops and others want to enjoy the pool. We never heard a peep from our rooms even thought the hotel was very busy. Only 1 slight thing was our A/C in one of the rooms wasn't working correctly but the Manager was very apologetic about it and these things can happen, it didn't take away from our stay and all of the staff very very helpful and very friendly... We'll be back!!!!

Great stay at Sheraton. Hotel is perfect for a quick getaway. Right in the centre of Athlone adjoining the new Town Centre shopping centre. Pool and fitness centre also great, and not too busy. Seemed to be a good few local members which would endorse it further. Lunch in the cafe was inexpensive and tasty and the hotel is a quick walk down to the main nightlife area (Sean's Bar, The Snug etc). The weekend we were there we didn't have time to use all the activities such as complimentary boat trip and watersports. Will be back! Also while in Athlone i'd recommend Thyme Restaurant.

Room Tip: Tower rooms are huge and modern, well worth it.
