Dear Guest,

Many thanks for taking the time to write your review.

We were delighted to see that you were very happy with your stay. We decided to go non smoking a few years ago, unfortunately not everyone totally follows the ruling but the majority do, but it is nice to see that it was noticed.

We look forward to welcoming you back to the Prince of Wales in the near future.

With Best Regards,

Padraic Whelan

I stayed here on a business trip recently. I found the staff to be efficient and friendly. The breakfast was particularly nice. I returned to the hotel late after a night out and couldn't attract the attention of the night porter, the doorman on the hotel nightclub couldn't have been more helpful. An all round good experience.

Had a fantastic 2 night stay at the Prince of Wales. The location is great for shopping, exploring Athlone, Shannon and also for nite life. Free parking was great for town centre.

The staff were very friendly and helpful throughout our stay. The room was nicely decorated, comfortable and spotless as was the rest of the hotel. Loved the power shower.

Excellent breakfast with a great sleclection, well presented and piping hot food. Very enjoyable. Great that it was served till late so we could have a sleep in.

We really enjoyed our stay and would definitely recommmend this hotel.

My husband and I spent 2 nights in the hotel in early December.We had a really lovely time.The biggest asset that the hotel has is it's very friendly and helpful staff from the lovely welcoming reception staff to the security man at the bar door.The manager is really pleasant and runs a great hotel.The food was excellent .We had breakfast,Lunch in the bar and dinner both nights.One tiny reccomondation,better lighting in the seating area in reception,not brighter just more focused ,for reading the paper etc.The free tea and coffee was a nice touch.Athlone is lovely.We will be back.

Stayed at POW Hotel this weekend, rooms were basic but clean, shower door was stuck and floor got very wet. Staff promptly brought extra towels to clean floor. Hot Breakfast was ok, plates a bit dirty. Hotel Reception staff very friendly. Had porridge 2nd morning and it was fab. Had afternoon tea and it was disgusting -asked for no butter. Sandwiches came hard (left out in air for ages and also with butter - v poor. Staff at 1st said, No, made fresh and we said, just look yourself, they apologised. No noise from disco as windows are well insulated. Nice touch of tea and coffee in reception on Sunday morning for guests. Very central location and car park beside hotel - easy access.

Dear Guest,

Many thanks for taking the time to review your stay with us.

Thank you for pointing out our shower door, it has now been rectified by our maintenance man. I was delighted to read you found our staff friendly and our porridge excellent. We have just recently introduced the tea/coffee stand and its nice that this extra touch was noticed. I was surprised and disappointed at your afternoon tea. Our afternoon teas are very popular and all sandwiches should be made fresh as we have a sandwich bar with our public bar, and our policy is to always make the sandwiches up fresh so I have spoken to our team to make sure this does not happen again.

I look forward to welcoming you back to the Prince of Wales in the future.

With Best Regards,
