It was our 1st visit to Athlone. When walking down the town, we called into this hotel for lunch. We were very impressed, I fancied a dinner, which I got from the carvery, my husband wanted soup and a toastie which we were delighted with the selection to choose from. Lots of seating ans sky tv on many screens which pleased my husband. We came back for our evening meal the next day. The staff are very helpful and friendly. We noticed how friendly the young staff were to older customers very impressed. Keep up the good work.
