Booked 2 nights b&b with 1 dinner here. Had never been to Athlone before so a bit apprehensive. When I phoned hotel to book the girl I spoke to was v encouraging and even threw in a boat trip on the Shannon. She invited me to take an upgraded room however as this was an impromptu break with budget in mind I though I would wait Nd see what rooms were like. When we arrived we found hotel easily enought and got parked. Got allocated room on 3rd floor and we were disappointed with it. It was dark and also a bit shabby. We felt it smelt like someone had smoked in it although we were assuepred it was a non smoking room. I phoned down to reception and immediately Gavin from guest relations came and showed us 3 rooms in the tower. Folks do not delay take the upgrade. No comparison. Views were amazing. Thanks to dan and Gavin for amazing and prompt service when they saw we were not happy with room.
Meal in restaurant at nit was ok just. Certainly not amazing but couldn't have complained. Harvest cafe was really good during day and we visited it twice.
Bring your hat if you want to swim as that cost us 2 euro each. Spa was lovely.
Other than that we had an amazin break and would thoroughly recommend Athlone.
Best bits for us was the complimentary boat trip with Mike on his Viking cruise.. It was amazing!! Thanks guys!
Loved Athkone town. Typical Irish town pubs music craic Nd plenty to see, all on the beautiful setting of the Shannon.
I would recommend.
