“Relaxing few days”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 5, 2014

My husband and I stayed at this hotel for 3 nights in the middle of February. We found the staff to be very helpful (especially Claudine). The food in the bar and restaurant were great and very portion sizes were perfect for those with a healthy appetite. The room although comfortable could definitely do with a makeover as there were a few stains on the carpet and tears in the curtains but hte bed was clean and comfortable. Would stay here again.

I could not enter the street that the hotel is on the road was blocked. the sat nav was no good but I met two of the local police the garda who showed me the way by the back roads. a big thank you.the hotel had plenty of free parking and booking in was easy. the bar and breakfast were great, I did not eat at the hotel for dinner. the room was large and well appointed. my only problem was the key card which needed to be re programmed 6 times during my one night.

Hi brianwNorthants,

Thank you for providing us with a review of your recent stay with us. I am disappointed to hear that you were unable to access the front entrance of our Hotel from Northgate Street due to recent works being carried out by the local council. In relation to the key card for your room I will bring this to the attention of our Front Office manager to ensure this does not happen again.

I am delighted to hear that you were pleased with our car parking facilities. I am also happy to hear that you had a great time in our bar.

I do hope that when you came back to us next time you will find some time to enjoy dinner in our Element’s Bistro.

Kind Regards,

Sinead Marron
General Manager

My husband and I stayed here last weekend. This is our second time and not our last. We were put in a business class room which was really nice and we had a fabulous view overlooking the Shannon. It was clean and comfortable. The staff are really nice.

Room Tip: We had room 409 overlooking the Shannon. It was quiet

Probably not the most spiffy of Radisson Blu's that I have stayed at. The room was a bit shabby and the night light broken and the doors to the cabinet that kept the glasses was broken too. However it's location is excellent for walking about Athlone and it's riverside access convenient. The bar staff were friendly and helpful with our large group.

Hi Marie O,

Thank you for taking the time to provide us with feedback of your recent stay with us. I am disappointed to hear that the night light was broken in your room and the cabinet was broken. I will pass on this information to our Maintenance team to ensure that these are fixed.

I am delighted to hear that you found our location ideal. Our central location is something that is enjoyed by everyone and is perfect for those who are organising conferences or looking to explore what Athlone town has to offer. I am also very happy to hear that our bar staff were helpful in the bar.

We do look forward to welcoming you back in the near future.

Five of us met for breakfast last week and we were let down by the service and the food. The self service breakfast bar had maybe two rashers left, one fried egg that was there for ages, and some deep fried potatoes with onions which were nice but lacked freshness.
I enjoyed the scrambled eggs, and the selection of breads. The table did not have any milk so a colleague walked the length of the restaurant looking for a jug of milk. No help from staff!
No napkins provided so we went walk about again.
It would not be on my list for a breakfast meeting, as even the most basic restaurant can beat that for food & service

Hi Alan S,

Thank you for taking the time to provide us with feedback from your recent experience of breakfast here in the hotel. I am very disappointed to read your review of our breakfast. Our buffet breakfast is something which guests regularly point out as something they really enjoyed – offering something for everyone, from continental options to hot food. Therefore, I will speak with both the Restaurant manager and our Head Chef to see how someone could have had an experience like this. I will make sure that the amount of food available to all our guests throughout our breakfast service is the same so every guest enjoys the same choices. I will also speak with our Restaurant manager in relation to the unhelpfulness of staff as usually our customer service is something we consistently receive praise for.

We do hope that you will consider returning to us in the near future to receive a better experience.

Kindest Regards,
Sinead Marron
General Manager

We won a meal for 2 in a raffle for this hotels restaurant so decided to travel down from Dublin and stay overnight as well it also coincided with our wedding anniversary. We were not disappointed it was a most enjoyable 24 hours.
We asked for a room overlooking the shannon , we were told ok but it wouldnt be ready for a while so we waited in the bar and had a very nice light lunch.
The staff in this hotel were first class, polite, friendly and very efficient. We would certainly return and would definitely recommend to our friends.

Room Tip: A room overlooking the Shannon has stunning views even on a cold wet spring day
